Colorado Boulevard in Old Town, Pasadena, California during a late afternoon in January. I really enjoy capturing images of the Pasadena urban scene, the variety of architecture and what I can produce using the lines, shapes and colors and textures that I find.
This image is for my friend Sheila Creighton who is a photographer and an automotive lover, Sheila blogs at Imagery of Light. This classic piece of automotive art was on display at the Pasadena Police Department Classic Car Show, June 17, 2011 and was parked on Colorado Boulevard where the Rose Parade takes place every New Years Day.
Parking valets and their clients after lunch on Colorado Boulevard, Old Town, Pasadena, California. I captured this image looking east from in front of the Pottery Barn at Fair Oaks and Colorado, which is a good location to capture the passing parade of daily life. Particularly on a hot day, when you park yourself in front of the open door way of the Pottery Barn and they are blowing all that cool air out the open doors.
Long a fixture on Colorado Boulevard in Old Town, Pasadena, California, this is the rear “patio” of the venerable dive bar, on the Mercantile Place side of the block. I think I am really attracted to a lot of the brickwork I find here, and I will probably return just to get some “stock” images of brickwork to keep on hand as textured backgrounds.
