Zen Monday: #114


Zen Monday is the day you experience the photo and give us your thoughts rather than me telling you what I think the photo's about.

I look for a photo worth contemplating or, failing that, something odd or silly. And unless I absolutely must say something I stay out of the comments box to avoid influencing the discussion.


There's no right or wrong. We're here to have fun.

An umbrella organization that does drop shipping?

We have plenty over here that you can have for free, Petrea.

Shell Sherree said...

When you're finished with your rental rain, simply drop it off at the depot and collect your refundable deposit. Easy!

Gunn said...

I see the BLUE (color)
It feels good!:)

The Occidental Runners photo leaves me speechless. However, I'll take this good dose of blue with the strong lines and colors!

Mister Earl said...

No thanks. Rain dances still work fine for us.

Tash said...

Just proves that anything can be bought in LA.
(I found one of those in Long Beach and posted it on a rainy day. It works so much better with a view of the dry mountains. Excellent photo, P.)

Vanda said...

In the Southern California weather you're much better off leasing your umbrella than outright buying it.

altadenahiker said...

Well, someone forgot to pay the landlord.

Pasadena Adjacent said...

Dr Thompson's color theory at work. You'll have to visit Ms Spritzer to figure what thats about.

actually it's Spitzer (I liked the water reference employed in Sp(r)itzer but Spitzer works too..... ok, it's hot

diva said...

Seattle can provide all the rain you want for no charge. In fact, I'd pay you to take some of it.

Clifford Beshers said...

Those orange pylons are notorious groupies.

Bellis said...

The State of California hits on a sure-fire way to balance the budget without raising taxes. No more free rain!

Clifford Beshers said...

Petrea, I suspect that telephone pole was made from a Pasadena leaning palm.

J+P said...

Telephonia crashdownicus, if I'm not mistaken. In this heat, the calls drop like flies …

Susan Campisi said...

The magic of moviemaking in Southern California.

Jean Spitzer said...

After trial period, you can buy?

WV: exazy . . . .

Dozens of thirsty bollards formed a line around the block, patiently waiting to be quenched. Crowd control was not necessary, according to Police Chief Phillip Sanchez.

Melanie Neslo said...

Is that a porta-potty in the distance? Some of the posts in line are even a little animated, like their doin' the "really gotta go" dance...and the big referance to rain probably isn't helping!

Rainy Days and Mondays.

Pennies from Heaven

Steve Scauzillo said...

"It never rains in Southern, California"

likenarnia said...

I'd like to rent some of that rain on this the hottest day in recorded history in LA.

Petrea said...

When someone figures out how we can trade rain with places like Seattle and the UK, I will hand them the Nobel Peace prize myself. (I will also serve them a nice spritzer.)

In the meantime, Mister Earl, I want to see that rain dance.

Mr.Johnson said...

I have thought about taking photo's but i'm not taht good at it plus, I have no camara. LOL

Petrea said...

Ha ha, Mr. Johnson! Well, I hope you get a camera soon, and when you do, I hope you start experimenting and having a good time with it!
