The Wright Tour, Pt. 2
Welcome to Pasadena! The City Hall is an impressive facility with a beautiful courtyard that beckons visitors to walk, relax, and enjoy the surrounding beauty.
At the time I was snapping these shots, the building's fire alarm was blaring as smoke filled the hallways. The smell of sulfur was fairly strong by the time I wrapped up.
Loved this fountain at the heart of the courtyard.
Pasadena seems to have an inordinate amount of historic churches. I was told that for the New Year's Day Annaul Rose Bowl Parade if January 1 happens to fall on a Sunday, the city ordinance forces the Parade to wait until January 2.
I returned to City Hall after dinner to snap a few night shots.
…and back again at sunrise.
I completely lucked out when I stumbled upon the Post Office.
It just so happened that the clerk was opening the building for business.
I was able to tour around this amazingly well-kept historic facility and snap to my heart's content.
A few more church shots:
I loved these graphic quotes that could be found around town:
Bryan - make sure you come back tomorrow as I will begin at the Gamble House. NO trip to Pasadena is complete without visiting this place!
