Pasadena Rose Bowl
Crazy, huge, amazing, crowded, fascinating, funky, inspiring. All words to describe the Rose Bowl Flea Market in Pasadena. It happens once a month and has been for over 40 years. It has been over 20 years since I was there, until yesterday! My friend Kat and I went there on a photography adventure. My goal, to search out all things AQUA. And there were many!
It was smart to focus on a couple of things, because it is so easy to get distracted. There is so much to see --and so many strange things! And lots of strange people, well, let me re-phrase - "interesting" looking people. I could just sit in a chair and watch all the people. But there are no chairs (to sit in), nor is there room for any! There are acres and acres of stuff crowded into the parking lot and the perimeter of the Rose Bowl. It is quite a sight. You could find anything here. If you love junking and finding treasures, than you really need to plan a trip here.
Just went thought all my photos and narrowed it down to 16 things I found that were aqua (it was hard to pick). I made a little collage to share. It was a fun adventure, and I look forward to doing it again! Maybe next time I'll choose All Things Vintage OFFICE . . . . (there was lots of it! and it was soooo cool!) or maybe telephones or typewriters, all things PINK, or . . . . .
In the spirit of beautiful aqua, Cindy
