I took this shot in Sierra Madre yesterday because it was colorful and fun. Karin (the Altadenahiker) and I were meeting at Bean Town to try the soup because Cafe Observer had told us it was good. (Turns out he was right).
Karin had just finished her ceramics class. If you've ever checked her blog you may know it's a new skill she's learning, and she admires Pasadena Adjacent's expertise. There was a frog challenge going on at one point. PA created a frog drawing, then Karin (the Altadenahiker) incorporated it into a ceramic tile. Pretty soon Laurie of Glimpses of South Pasadena posted about it on her other blog, Glancing About. It may still be my turn to come up with something froggish in response.
As Karin and I returned to our cars, she pointed out this building, the one I'd photographed before meeting her at Bean Town. "That's where I take my ceramics class," she said. I looked for frogs on the premises, but found none.
