Shadows of the Moon

I took these photos during the recent Super Worm Equinox Moon event (I swear they’re just making these names up). The moon didn’t look any larger than usual to me, but it was shone so brightly that the details of the surface were clearly visible through a heavy cloudlayer. It was pretty fantastic.

Anyhow, I wasn’t able to get a clear picture of that, but I think some of the pictures I came out pretty nice anyway, if not in quite the way I wanted.

The Westin

At long last, some more pictures.

This one’s a bit closer to home, so there’s not really much of a story behind it. The Westin is this mall… like… thing… of some sort just off Colorado Blvd in Pasadena, conveniently located just across the street from City Hall. It’s not really a mall, so much as it is sort of a place with some stores. There’s a gym there and a CPK, and a very nice looking hotel, along with some pretty interesting architecture, and that’s what this is all about.

Oh, oh yeah, the parking lot stair well has some pretty unusual and dramatically industrial-looking utility equipment.

Alright, I’ve a confession to make. This was actually two photo expeditions. See, I went in the evening, and intended to get both the above and below photos in one go. Problem is, by the time I finished the below shots (most of which I have not published as I took them solely for own visual reference and not for art and aren’t really that high quality shots anyway), it was dark.

Meant to finish a few times since on the way home from work, but weather, poor planning, and a dead camera battery put the nix on most of those so I wasn’t able to get the shots from up top done until the other day. So here they are.

An interesting water feature/sculpture thing they have there. That’s city hall in the background.

All Saints Episcopal Church

All Saints Episcopal Church

Now, this Church isn’t technically part of the Westin, but I’ve always thought of it as if it were. The Westin is a sort of a ‘U’-shape, and the Church is located in the area between the two… top parts of the ‘U’. Prongs? Risers? Whatever. Anyway, pretty cool old looking Church. It was supposedly open when I was there, but the big oak doors in front were locked up tight, which is a shame because I really wanted to take a look inside.

And no, I am not going to break into a church. An abandoned church, maybe, but not a regular one. Ooh, I wonder if there are any abandoned churches near me. I’ll be those would be pretty cool. I should look into that.

Part of a dam near my house. I’m not entirely sure what goes on in this little building, but it looks cool.
