Welcome! You've found my virtual front porch.

For five years, I posted a photo with commentary every single 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 eased off from daily posting, but was amazed that the blog was still visited by so many.  

I started regularly 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.)  I'm an old-school blogger, even in the age of social media.

In 2018, Glimpses turned 10 years old -- which seemed like a good time to take a break. 

I still post occasionally, especially if there is something happening in South Pas that I want to show you or talk about.

You can always duck out of Facebook and Instagram to find this blog at southpasadena.blogspot.com, and also at glimpsesofsouthpasadena.com.  I'm proud to have left a chronicle of 10 years in my beautiful city!

I still post daily photos from South Pas as well as greater Los Angeles and Southern California at my blog Glancing About.  Thanks for the support, friends!

(Or your chest...)

My daughter and I absolutely adore these chiffon tops.  They're both elegant and funky, with a gorgeous fade-proof print fabrics I designed from my original photos.  If you love scarves, or scarf-print boho tops, you'll love these.

You can click the many label links on the bottom right column of this blog for specific subjects, click here for a list of all videos and slideshows, or just wander around. Everyone knows South Pas is a great place to explore...  

Thanks for stopping by!

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.
