Personal Favorite

Today is the first day of the month and that means it's Theme Day for participating City Daily Photo bloggers. This month's theme is Your Favorite Part of Town.

Well that's a no-brainer!

Long-time readers of GOSP know I have a love affair with the South Pasadena Public Library. Not only is it one of the most picturesque of our historic buildings, it's one of the most vibrant, energetic, artistic parts of the city. As a matter of fact, I feature the art, architecture and activities of the library in my column this week at South Pasadena Patch. (It should post sometime today before lunchtime.)

Stay tuned for more information on upcoming library events. And to visit my fellow bloggers' favorite local haunts, be sure to take a look at today's Theme Day offerings. Click here to view thumbnails for all participants

Those tree roots are terrific. So grounding and symbolic for the fundamental skill of reading. :)

I was just at Petrea's place and noted I'd visited her favorite place and here we are at the SPPL and I"ve photographed this fabulous tree with YOU! You're right of course, this is a very special place. Now, let's head acrosss the street for coffee shall we?

That reminds me. I owe them for back fines.

Yes, Judy's right!

A magnificent, solid tree with amazing roots spreading out forever is a black & white winner!

I like the whimsical Palm trees in back of the up-straight side of the library.

Few people know that this tree was planted by Bill Kloseman a man who worked for the City of South Pasadena for 45 years before retiring. I was told that this magnificent tree was planted from a seedling in a 5 gallon bucket.
