A Little Throwback...



Yeah...I'm scrambling...
I haven't gone out shooting for awhile...
so....
here's a night shot of the Pasadena City Hall...
one gorgeous building!!!


"Government, even in its best state,
is but a necessary evil;
in its worst state,
an intolerable one."
Thomas Paine


Out of the mouth of a founding father...
yep...Thomas Paine...1737-1809
words of non-partisan wisdom...


I've been caught up in life...
no new photos for quite awhile...
aside from the fact that the snow is crusty and/or non existent...
but I do promise to head out next week and get some good new shots!!!

    You KNOW «Louis» likes the Thomas Paine quote! It's now more true than ever!

    You probably know this: General George Patton was born and raised in Pasadena.

  2. It's a fab shot Chieftess and I know what you mean about life getting in the way.. Its been so hectic getting Aimee settled in her new home, painting etc. and now that she has actually moved in I feel totally bereft, not that I'd let her see that :) I'm very proud of her.

  9. Sometimes being caught up in life is much more fun…only when it gets in your way it becomes serious.
    Great building and I like the, in comparison, tiny moon!
