The view from the water tower in Monterey Hills is absolutely amazing. (But, if you're paying attention, when you walk back to your car in the early morning sunlight you'll see these wonderful shadows from a neighboring fence. Consider it a beautiful little bonus.)
UPDATE: I got a little lagniappe of my own today. Petrea over at Pasadena Daily Photo is promoting one of my biggest causes: saving the Rialto Theater. I am doing a series of videotaped interviews to collect your memories of our beloved movie palace. Take a look at Petrea's post here and check back here at Glimpses before 9:00AM tomorrow for even more info about participating!
