Welcome Weekend

Here's a view of the tower of St. Andrews Catholic Church as reflected in the windows overlooking the parking lot behind the LA Financial Credit Union at Fair Oaks and Walnut.

No, I'm not making a statement about money and religion. I just thought it looked serene.

I have a serene weekend planned. You?

There's a new daily photo blog in town called Pasadena, 91105 and Beyond. It's just a little over a week old so if you get there quick you can read all the posts so far and not miss anything. Go say hi to Kat and enjoy this welcome addition to Pasadena's wildly robust blogging community.

Welcome, Kat!

What a cool image! I have a reflective weekend planned too, Petrea. :) Have a lovely time with your serenity.

Nice one!
Been to yoga this morning, so that may sound spiritual and reflective, but Bikram Yoga, (or hot yoga) is all about not fainting and keep the sweat dripping from your body :)

I've been noticing reflections over the past year thatnks to youse guys.

Petrea said...

I will, thanks, Shell.

Ineke, I tried Bikram twice and gave up. Too hot! Good for you for sticking with it and not fainting!

Merci, PA.

Hiker, there are a lot of quotes about the camera and how it teaches you to see. I see everything differently now. Sounds like that's starting to happen to you, too.

The little church tower looks as though it's looking out of the window.

Just don't make a financial statement about money & politics. Or, all the wunderful fundraiser / lobbyists.

For that matter, don't make a statement either on money & health care.

Hey, thanks for the mention, Petrea! I'm excited to be joining such a clearly fun and creative group of people.

Awesome photo! Very pretty church, and I love the clouds (although I think that means there's more rain on the way). I'm at my mom's and we're making cheese cream puff appetizers for a dinner party we're going to tonight. Ok, so she's making them and I'm sampling. Yum!

What a great slice P.
I'm off to welcome the newbie! :)

Neighborhood get-together tonight -- potluck and libations -- then some errands and gardening tomorrow. This is the first weekend I've had off in nearly two months, now that State of the City and the annual report are behind me! Wishing everyone a restful weekend.

Boiinnng! Just saw this now. Nice shot, dude.

Petrea said...

Sounds like folks have nice weekends planned (now that we're halfway into it).

Bellis, funny that you say "little church" as it's such a high tower, but it does look small in the photo.

You know I'll say what I want to, Cafe, but thanks for the warning.

klikkonthis: Welcome again. I think you're going to love it.

Looks like we do have rain in the forecast, Katie. Don't mention it around Boz.

Virginia, if no one else visits Kat's new blog she's still going to have fun if you show up.

Ann, I'm so glad you finally get a weekend off! You've been working awfully hard for a long, long time. I hope this weekend is spectacularly lazy for you.

Dude. Thank you.

A very well thought out photo. You have a great mind for photography. A great photo is taken with the mind before if hits the lens. I really like your photos. Thank you for sharing them. Your best photos are still out there waiting for you. Cant wait to see them.

Ms M said...

I love "reflection" photos like these. Great catch!

J+P said...

What mark said. You have an eye, because it's connected to your brain.

Petrea said...

Thanks so much. I'm always so happy when people enjoy the photo. I want each one to be my best one. It rarely works that way, but it's a joy to find something I hadn't noticed before, especially in a place where I've stood a hundred times. The camera teaches me to see in new ways.

That really is a fantastic image.

Petrea said...

Thanks, E. More and more, I'm liking simple.
