Last Day, January 2010

Johnson Field looks green after rain, doesn't it?

I took this photo January 23rd. At left, John and Boz face off. At right, a father and his kids play ball. It was inevitable that the twain should meet.

After I took the shot I walked to the drinking fountain and met Jodie, the mom of the ball-playing family. We had a connection: she's the photographer and blogger at The Four Seasons, another Pasadena blog (we have a plethora of great blogs and bloggers in Pasadena). Not only that, Jodie's husband Steve is THE Steve--you know Steve, right? No? Well, Steve had extensive information for me about my Woodbury Creek post, and as a born and bred Pasadenamanian he's loaded with local lore.

We have such cool people here. I love that I photographed this meeting just before it happened. To compare Last Day photos, click the Last Day Project tag below.

Fancy finding out that those people were virtual acquaintances! How many other bloggers are we unwittingly passing on our hikes? Maybe you should all wear badges?

To everything, turn, turn, turn,
There is a season, turn, turn, turn,
And a time to every purpose under heaven.

I think blogger badges are a brilliant idea.

It's a small, small world. Or city.

Petrea said...

Pasadena is indeed small. Sometimes it seems like everyone here has a blog.

To some of us our cameras are our badges. If we use a photo avatar (and if it's not 15 years old), we know each other!

Lovely photo! Having vibrant greens in the winter sure make the rains survivable (in my view). I was lucky enough to get out of the city this weekend and into the green hills. My spirits soared! Very fun to see John and Boz facing off here.

Virginia said...

Oh I love J's "center" stance and Boz all ready! :)

Glad you got to head for the hills, Katie. Open space is good for the soul.

Aren't I lucky, V? My guys.

Margaret, it's a straight shot north for you, not too far. You might like a stroll there.

Love the greenery ~ we've had bucketing rain in the past couple of days and everything's lush.

Petrea said...

Love the lush! I've got happy birds outside my window right now and it's a joy.
