Storm Clouds over OSH

Pasadena -- Storm clouds gather as shoppers rush in and out of Orchard Supply Hardware. Today LA residents got to experience cooler-than-normal temperatures, with the thermometer dipping all the way down into the 40s! (Joke) Yeah, we have it pretty good here in the Crown City, especially when we get to wake up to snow-capped mountains.

Dynamic V-Day Duo

Pasadena -- I am lucky to have married a woman who enjoys people and photography as much as I do. Photo shoots of each other in the back yard in front of a white backdrop stimulates goofiness and a few keepers. Happy Valentine's Day!

Crystal Cathedral

Garden Grove, Calif.-- This iconic church is made with over 10,000 squares of glass put together with a silicone-based adhesive. Since California is prone to large earthquakes, the Crystal Cathedral apparently can withstand an earthquake of 8.0. I would still hate to be inside during one of our regular temblors.
