We all know that as the seasons change on Earth, temperatures rise and fall, plants grow or die, ice forms or melts away. Perhaps nobody is more aware of this than NASA’s Visible Earth team who provide a vast catalog of images of our home planet as seen from space. Last month designer, cartographer, and dataviz expert John Nelson download a sequence of twelve cloud-free satellite imagery mosaics of Earth, one from each month, and then created a number of vivid animated gifs showing the seasonal changes in vegetation and land ice around the world.

Repurposed parking meters in Pasadena are collecting change for nonprofits that serve the homeless. Pasadena is the first city in L.A. County to try the donation meters, which are supposed to raise awareness for the city’s homeless programs.

I love this park!  I especially love to eat felafel from Shwarma King at this park.

So across the street from my new apartment are these stairs that go up to the opposite side of the street.

Once you get up them there is an old, cool looking set of steep stone steps marked “Summit Path”. I felt like seeing where they went.
