Take Out Door

Nikon D7000 18-200mm @ 18mm 3-bkts f/11 Lr4, HEP1, TpzSim; PsCS5

Continuing the doorway theme from last Friday’s post, this doorway is attached to California Pizza Kitchen in Chino Hills, California.  I had never experienced the food at California Pizza Kitchen until very recently, always fearful that a restaurant famous for BBQ chicken pizza could not get pizza right, after all, I always knew that pizza was not pizza if it did not have tomato sauce and pepperoni as at least two of its components.  I was however pleasantly surprised last year when I enjoyed a pizza in the designer pizza genre featuring leaks courtesy of Wolfgang Puck.  Based on this experience we decided to give California Pizza Kitchen a try recently.  Judy opted for tradition with a pepperoni and sausage pizza, I chose the wild mushroom pie, it came with three kinds of fresh mushrooms (never, ever soil a pizza with canned mushrooms), fontina cheese and a hint of garlic, on a thin crust.  That pizza was Heavenly, the crust was light but had a good chew on it, the mushrooms were luscious and complimented by the melted cheese and the garlic.  We washed our pizzas down with a bottle of ice cold Riesling, and have added California Pizza Kitchen to our rotation.

Hanging Out With Dad

The scene is the South Lake Avenue shopping district in Pasadena, California.  Life couldn’t be better for a young girl than a leisurely afternoon window shopping ride with the family dog and dad towing us in a red wagon.

One more image from the plaza off the Laemmle Theater in Claremont, California.  Wednesday’s image and this one were captured in mid-October, bringing to mind one nice attribute about life in Southern California, you can dine or relax outside any time of the year as long as it is not raining, and if there are some conveniently located outdoor heaters for those cool winter nights.
