#2 - city hall

august will be the last month of the sky is big in pasadena.  

i have accepted a position at salford mennonite church in harleysville, pennsylvania.  we will be moving in september, so august will be my farewell month to the city of pasadena.  when we moved here from virginia i posted a list of the ten things i would miss most about harrisonburg.  i figured that would be a good way to end our time here, so each day i will be doing one final rundown of life in this great city.  i have prepared two lists - ten things i won't be sad to leave behind, and twenty of my absolute favorite things about pasadena.  we have arrived at the top ten things about life in pasadena.

#2 - city hall

much like the pasadena sky, city hall was a frequent subject of my daily photo blog.  it has appeared seventy times in four years - not quite twice per month, but getting close to that mark.  it was one of my first blog posts ever, and is easily my favorite thing to take pictures of in town.

anyone who comes to visit us remarks about how beautiful this building is, and they are always amazed at how easy it is to walk in and around.  pasadena's beloved public information officer even gave a private tour to some local bloggers last year which was a ton of fun.  i will miss this beautiful building.

You have had some great shots of this building and I think I know what's coming up next.

I may have missed this, but did you consider staying in the Pasadena area?

Oh certainly. We love it here. But there is only a handful of Mennonite churches in SoCal, and none of them were in need of an English speaking pastor right now. So I followed the job opportunities.

There's no bad angle on the place. I think it particularly loves your camera.

I think if loco devoted people like Petrea, PA, and Madame Granmaphone, etc, converted to Womennonitism, or just Mennonites, you'd bee able to start a new church here. And thus you could stay right here!!
Can I hear a "you gotta believe!"in that!
