Modern

I’m sorry, darlings—I meant to post earlier, but I’ve been under the weather these days… Such beautiful days, too!

Here are the pictures that I promised you, taken mostly on Lake Avenue in Pasadena.


A futuristic yogurt shop


The perfect man

(I’m sure that he helps with the electronics at this repair shop.)


Some old-fashioned fun

By the way, this past weekend I had Mon Oncle out from my library. In case you haven’t watched it, Mon Oncle is a very funny movie by French filmmaker Jacques Tati and pokes fun at modern houses, furniture, gadgets, etc. It struck me that, even though the film was made in 1958, many of these things could still be considered “modern” today!

A bientot!

Cafe Pasadena: Thanks! The robot comment is mostly a joke, but doesn't this robot man have nice eyes? The free wi-fi place is the Cantaloop frozen yogurt shop. It's on S. Lake Avenue, across the street from Smith & Hawkin. Now, I must look at your blog...
