So– I call this is my “one year anniversary-ish” because that actual date came and went more than a month ago and I kind of ignored it when it happened.

Mainly because a) I was busy and b) I didn’t know exactly how I wantd to mark it and c) because I”m a little lazy (just ask my mom.)

But now I’ve had a little time to think and I’ve decided how I want to take note of my official One Year of Pasadena 91105, which is…

–To take a look at where it all began for me.

The whole reason I started this blog was because for years previously I had been taking photographs — usually slightly odd ones– with nothing to do with them. No place to show them, other than to family and friends who were forced to sit in front of my computer while I ran a little slideshow.

Not surprisingly, friends and family all got tired of that pretty quickly.

Ultimately, of course, I began the blog and have found that official outlet that I need and that, thankfully, people seem to enjoy.

But I have been thinking recently about those older photos, and while they’re different, they are the genesis of my blog and I’d love to let them have their little moment in the sun too.

So, for the next ten days or so, I”m going to “live without fear” as this graffiti from Rome commands, and I’ll be running a mix of these photos, from past years, and different places.

Most of them are taken with my digital SLR (my only camera in my pre-iphone days) and most of them were taken on trips (since that’s the only time I ever really ran around with an SLR slung around my neck).

I hope you enjoy.

And thanks for sticking around with me for a year.

Cheers!

  1. Seems like it has been longer than a year! I can’t believe your mom would say you are lazy!! LOL Keep up the good or should I say great work. I do enjoy them but don’t always comment. Thanks for sharing a piece of your life!

  2. Happy birthday Pasadena 91105 then!
    It’s been a year and I’m only discovering your blog these days but I like it so I hope you’ll go on blogging and following the advice on this post for a long time!

    • Thanks for finding me! I’ve bookmarked your blog, and I’ll be going back and checking yours too. Although a photo blog is sometimes a lot of work (even just one little photo a day) I find it really rewarding and fun. Let’s all keep doing it for a long time!

  3. Congratulations! I love the connection this provides to those of us far away.

    • I always smile when I see that you have peeked and commented (although I know that its impossible for you to do every day). l like knowing that we have the contact. 🙂

  4. There aren’t a lot of things I do every single day but this is one of them, it seems like I’ve been doing it for more then a ear. By the comments,apparently friends and family didn’t mind looking at your pictures:) Looking forward too another year.

  5. Congratulations!! I, too, can’t believe it’s only been a year. I love the feeling of anticipation every morning as my computer chugs along loading up your page.

    As I read down your post, I was worried you were going to say you’d had enough and were giving up. So glad you’re not.

    • I will admit that there have been times that I’ve thought about hanging it up… but I get over it. 🙂 I’m happy that — even though my blog still takes to long to load– that you approach that with anticipation. 🙂 I happen to know you are a person of taste, so that means a lot!

  6. Happy Anniversaryish!!! The other day my sister, who is an artist, told me I had it right…artistic expression, on the computer…no pieces to lug around, store, etc etc!!! (she hasn’t been to our new home in Mammoth where all my photography stuff is lying around the living room because all our extra rooms are reserved as Chateau d’Watson!)

    Now that you’ve mastered the blogging thing…I’m thinkin’ it’s time for that show…head on over to So Pasadena Chamber of Commerce with a few of your pics and see what happens!!! (Tell Scott Laurie and I sent you!)

    • I can see I’m going to have to do that eventually or else you’ll never leave me alone! lol! I so appreciate your vote of confidence in me. My mother-in-law (who is an artist) was visiting this weekend and she’s on your side and is scheming. I should put you two in touch!

  7. Oh I think my one year is now too, maybe today…or yesterday – I’m in the same boat, too busy to check! I enjoy your commentaries with your photos!

  10. CONGRATULATIONS from me, Gunn / Stavanger / Norway.
    I have really enjoyed your creative photos, and o look forward to see more!:)

    • Thanks so much! It’s been a fun process and it’s really taught me a lot! How to keep my eyes open, for one thing! And the pressure of deadlines! Lol. 🙂
