Images & Observations

Chill’n At The Equator

Street Life

Nikon D7000 18-135mm @ 26mm ISO 2500 1/6 f/3.8 Lr3; SEP2

The Equator was originally a stable in the 19th century, and since the revitalization of Old Town, Pasadena, California that began in the late 20th century the building has hosted various hospitality based businesses.  They bill themselves from what I can gather from their web site as a restaurant/club featuring Asian fusion food and of course a full bar.  Equator is located on Mills Place which is nearly just an alley in Old Town, adjacent to Mills Alley, which is a real alley.  This short street is much more typical of the North End in Boston, than of some Disneyfied  entertainment venue typical of the greater Los Angeles area.

No special post processing here, just some selective tone adjustments to bring out more clarity of all the human images, particularly of the fellow actually inside the building.  I was intrigued by the elaborate chandeliers that are visible through the windows and I like the image of the hairless guy leaning against the wall.

    I really like these photos of local historic locations and the stories that accompany them, Wayne. Keep them coming.

  2. Thanks, Ken. I agree, when I can find it I believe the historical context adds a dimension.
