Pasadena, CA is a perfect SoCal location for HDR. Lots of alleys and grungy areas in Old Town. This was probably a happening place one day? Billy’s Dugout Old Town. Could it have been the Cheers of Pasadena…only the old customers know the story. Looks like the Dugout…struck out. Wonder what it looks like inside? Now that might be a cool HDR!?
Here is some info from the web: Old Town Pasadena spans 21 blocks downtown. It boasts upscale retail shops and a wide variety of restaurants, nightclubs, outdoor cafés, pubs, and comedy clubs. “One Colorado” features renovated historic architecture that attracted the new retail stores and restaurants. This development filled vacant buildings and was the impetus of the revitalization of Old Town on Colorado Boulevard. Paseo Colorado is an upscale shopping mall designed to be a modern urban village. An open-air mall that covers three city blocks.
It is a wonderful place to eat, shop and photograph. Here you can also find the City Hall. A beautiful building as you can see above. Look for more pics soon! Enjoy!
