The weather was beautiful here today, balmy with wispy clouds. I decided to get out of my office and get some air. It was so lovely to watch the sun dip into the western sky from my spot (sitting on an old palm tree stump at Pasadena’s Central Park). Here are a few of the Polaroids I took during my little outing: the clouds, the palm trees, a leafless willow and one of the turrets at the glorious Castle Green — across the street from the park. (A very hardy old rose bush is still at it, despite the season.)

    your pictures look very calm..like a late winter day would feel like. Everything frozen in time just before the excitement of spring will set everything in motion.
    Late winter days in Belgium are 90% of the time gray :)lucky you!

    Hi Tina,

    I never think of California as having a “winter light”. Neat.

    Your blog is really growing in leaps and bounds. Thanks for the call out about Michael Sowa and the art from Amelie.

    You are on my blogroll of fame.

  10. Tina says:

    I’ve really been enjoying the few sites I’ve found that feature Polaroid shots – such a lovely, soft, sometimes vintage quality to the photos.

    Great job!
    Gotta get me one of those cameras!

  12. Tina Tarnoff says:

    Beautiful shots! The colors are just amazing. And to join in the cheer and complements:) I love stopping by your blog, it's truly one of my favorites! Beautiful, charming & serene and the writing is lovely.
    You rock Tina!
