Weekly Photo Challenge: Lunchtime at work

me: “Quick! Do the Weekly Photo Challenge from WordPress before Friday!”
Here is the link to the Weekly Photo Challenge: http://dailypost.wordpress.com/2013/03/15/photo-challenge-lunchtime/#comment-165232

I took this picture last Friday before I devoured the fish tacos.

Fish tacos with orange and jicama slaw. One co-worker came back complaining that they had run out of the fish tacos. I will definitely make the orange jicama slaw.

Today I had a spinach salad with quinoa, carrots, cranberries, chick peas, edamame, pumpkin seeds and carrot ginger miso dressing. It was yummy! I bought it from Trader Joe’s. I love that place.

Enjoying my spinach salad while I check some facts in the 2012 Dodgers guide.

First picture I had it on Instagram and I was having dificulty copying it.  The second picture I had uploaded it to Twitter.

 

Photo Challenge: Phoneography Challenge: My Neighborhood

I am a little late posting for this week’s photo challenge http://dailypost.wordpress.com/2013/03/08/my-neighborhood/ but here it is.   I decided to do this based on my 45 mile commute to work.   It is basically my two neighborhoods traveling from the San Gabriel valley to the other valley, the San Fernando Valley.

All pictures taken with my Iphone and I will start from work to home because in the morning I am always rushing to get to work.

Chatsworth, CA train station.  My Metrolink train #118 is arriving on time.   Lots of Western movies were filmed in Chatsworth.

As I exit the train at Union Station, I can see the Los Angeles City Hall.  This is where the old Chinatown used to be.

Final destination:  El Monte station.  Note the Lions theme at the top.

El Monte was the home of the Gay’s lion Farm.  The infamous  MGM lion shown at the beginning of MGM movies made in that era was kept here along with lions in Tarzan movies.  Also one of the lions was also in Charlie Chaplin’s movie “The Circus.”

Funny that I have driven past this intersection numerous times and I have never noticed the bronze statue.  When I found out about it today I missed again and only saw it on my way back.   Thanks to the photo challenge I learned more about my neighborhood.

Baseball related.  Tony Malinosky who played for the Brooklyn Dodgers was a resident of El Monte and attended El Monte High School.  Also Fred Lynn went to El Monte High School.  Both Tony and Fred were born in Illinois.

Photo Challenge: Lost in the Detail

I started reviewing my pictures to see what I could use for this week’s Photo Challenge: Lost in the Detail http://dailypost.wordpress.com/2013/03/01/weekly-photo-challenge-lost-in-the-details/ 

I found these pictures when I took a road trip to Seattle with friends Lorena & Rosie to see the Dodgers last year. 

We were taking pictures of the Chihuly Garden and glass

2012  Seatle Trip ! 015

At the Chihuly Garden and Glass when I spotted a bee.   2012  Seatle Trip ! 016

 I am afraid of bees but I stayed there taking the picture.

I also took this picture aiming low at the reflection of Lorena and I taking pictures.   

 

Weekly Photo Challenge: Forward

LOS ANGELES DODGERS WORKOUT

These are Dodgers minor leaguers running during Spring Training.  I like this picture because it depicts the minor leaguers fighting to make it to the Majors. 

Like Cristina Saralegui says in that Cuban expression “Pa’lante, pa’lante, pa’tras ni pa’ coger impulso”   which means “Forward,  don’t step back, not even to gain momentum (coud also be understood as “to get a running start”.)   

That is my advice to the minor leaguers.  Pa’lante muchachos! Spring forward!

First Spring Training game for the Dodgers today!   Baseball is back!  Pa’lante todos mis muchachos!   Good luck to all the guys new ones, old ones and those struggling to make the team!  Pa’lante!  

Spring forward!

My first time participating in the Weekly Photo Challenge with a theme.  This week’s challenge is a picture that says  FORWARD
