I've been following two Pasadena "photo-a-day" blogs. One is Pasadena Daily Photo. The other is the sky is big in pasadena (yes, written all in lower case)
I post many pictures of Pasadena also, both here and on Mixed Messages- although I would never consider the ritual of posting something every single day. Whenever I feel like it is my way.
the sky is big in pasadena included this wide picture of a church steeple shot from Colorado Blvd. facing south. I happen to have several pictures of that same steeple taken from the parking lot facing east. It's a fascinating ornate gothic copper-toned crossless phallus presumptuously reaching for the sky. Probably it inspires shock and awe.
Closing in on some details.
An Escher-esque corner of the church. I remember playing a concert of music by Arnold Schoenberg in that church in 1974 or 1975. Possibly that was my very first visit to Pasadena.
I couldn't resist this parking lot shot. (No, that's not the real license plate number.)
View this location in Google Maps. The Street View feature is active for this spot - but not terribly interesting.
I think this is the church's website.
