Pasadena

Yesterday, we decided to take a trip out to Pasadena with our new puppy Iggy. As usual, we got a late start… 🙂

Our first stop was the Armory Center for the Arts, which was formerly an armory (seems like its very popular to turn armories into art galleries); the photo show was interesting: Jeff Reese – a memorial exhibition. I thought his early work was reminiscent of the photo secession (one of my favorite periods of photography) but I didn’t like his later abstract photography.  The rest of the work being shown was ho-hum.

There’s a very cool copy of an Italian tower at this end of town.

Our next stop was Distant Lands, a really wonderful travel shop and bookstore – I bought a book with stories from the New York City Subway, commemorating its centennial; Aviva bought a book on Puglia in Italy (of course).

We shopped around a little and then headed home to feed our little puppy (and ourselves).
