Anyone who lives in Southern California knows that being stuck in traffic for too long can make you feel dark and paranoid. With that in mind, this week I bring you a series of shots taken while stuck in traffic on the 110, trying to get back to South Pas. From the 4-level to the tunnels, Los Angeles offers the perfect noir landscape. Anyway, you guys know that I love a chance to pretend like I'm the lovechild of John Alton and Dorothy B. Hughes...
It's Freeway Noir Week, everyone. A series of shots from the 110 freeway, en route to South Pas.
Disclaimer: DUH! I wasn't shooting while I was driving. Haven't any of you heard of carpooling?
Glimpses of South Pasadena is (almost) 10 years old!
In December of 2007, after many years on the west side of Los Angeles (and at least a third of those years spent stuck in traffic on Pico Boulevard) my family settled into a happy little house in South Pasadena. This daily blog covered almost 5 years as I put down roots in my new home town -- and almost 5 more as I settled in and became a South Pas old-timer. While I don't always blog daily, I add new posts every week.

Thank you Charlie's Coffee House for hosting my photo exhibit, South Pas: Observed. From October 2011 through January 2012 my pictures graced the walls of the best place in town to get a cup of coffee!
