It's a toss between "to walk or ride" and "Spoils of the summer"

I'm partial to the perspective of the Rose Bowl Stadium photo -- from the inside out with the mountain looming just north. Spectacular!

For me, it has to either be City Hall or Colorado Bridge - this is a Pasadena blog, after all. 'Straight up' is nice. However, if I was choosing one not on the list, I might go for 'First Congregational church and sky' from January 30. It's so clean and I love the way it makes you look up to the clouds and beyond.

I'm going with "To Walk or Ride." I like the perspective on that one.

I'm partial to pics of good-looking & great-tasting food over bikes, brick or cement.

You have some great shots here! I love the one of Andrew and the cicada. But it would have to be my second choice after "To Walk or to Ride." Love that one.

I have to go with "up close and personal with city hall"...the clarity, angle, sky, all perfect! And it IS a Pasadena landmark

To me, Colorado Street Bridge is a classic!

Sept 21, bridge across arroyo seco---so Pasadena, but not. The colors are delightful and peaceful.

City Hall in the Evening... I'm a sucker for a great architectural shot :)

City hall shots always get me, but I think I'll have to cast my vote for Walk or Ride. It's just splendid, Ben.

i know its not Pasadena - but my vote goes to kings canyon. Gorgeous shot!

City hall in the evening is just wonderful. The clarity of the building and the color of the sky is the best!
(The Rose Bowl is very nice & good for Jan. 1st - but I don't see any SC colors, so naw. I got a chance to perform there with my HS marching band in '75 or '76 for HS soccer play-offs. It was a thrill!)

Gotta be the bridge. But I really like the up close with city hall photo too.
