Well, it’s been a wet weekend in Pasadena, my little town, out there on the slippery edge.
My camera knows it too well via a lens gone wet & dirty from all this rain! I’ve issued a flash flood warning for all camera lenses in rain prone areas this week!!
My lens & photos have seen better days as you can see from my last visit to Vroman’s Bookstore on a rainy night:
Inside they seem to be going through the motions with their Christmas Tree & holiday decorations. Based on this night, I’ve seen better Christmases from them in the past. And before last years tree controversy along Colorado Blvd I would have expected a real tree instead from this iconic Pasadena business. Or, maybe it’s the economy. Small business & independent bookstores are always fighting another round to stay alive & well.
May all their future Christmases be merrier & with a good cheer.
Nevertheless, Vroman’s is a Pasadena place you check out when visiting our little town for the 1st time. Friendly, knowledgeable, courteous, unpretentious. On this night one female employee was especially friendly to me. Nothing like caring, customer-oriented, customer service! My favorite bookstore.
Support your local independent bookstore. Or ours if you don’t have one!

That’s my view from the other night. What are you feeling from the above pics?
