About



Welcome! You've found my virtual front porch.

Join me as I go into my second decade of observing, photographing and writing about South Pasadena.

For almost five years, I posted a photo every day from South Pasadena -- Los Angeles' little town in the big city. (There are more details in the side bar to your right.)  If you look through the archives you will find my daily musings, a few rants, a lot of history, some interesting tidbits and several thousand views of early 21st century South Pas.  In 2012, I took several years off from daily posting, but was amazed that the blog was regularly visited by so many.  

I started posting again in March, 2016.  I kept the original old-school Glimpses blog design, the one I started with back in 2007.  (We're nostalgic here in South Pas.)  You can always find this blog at southpasadena.blogspot.com, and also at glimpsesofsouthpasadena.com.

I also post daily photos from around greater Los Angeles and Southern California here.  Thanks for the support, friends!

Technical Details:
I shoot with Nikon, Lumix, iPhone and a FujiFilm point-and-shoot that for mysterious reasons takes incredible night photos.  Occasionally I go old-school with a 1980s Yashica TLR.

The Bigger Picture:
Consider this blog an ongoing love letter to the place I call home.
