March 13, 2017: Since I started Gem City Images way back in 2007, the photos posted here have been (almost) exclusively of Monrovia. All my other photos have been posted to various social media sites like Flickr, Instagram and Facebook.

While that seemed like a good idea, in reality it led to a lack of consistency that was frustrating for me and made it hard to follow along with the latest photos.

So, starting now, Gem City Images will no longer be exclusively Monrovia. If you still want to see Monrovia only, you can always click the "Monrovia" label on the right side but hopefully you'll follow along for the whole experience.

Even though Gem City Images refers to Monrovia, I decided to keep that as the blog name. No matter where I go, The Gem City is where it all started.

How To Ruin A Beautiful Day


This was on the foothill (210) freeway earlier today on the westbound side just before the Myrtle Ave. exit in Monrovia.

What could be worse than watching your car on fire on Super Bowl Sunday?  It may not show up well in the photo, but it doesn't look like the car has license plates yet.  This could be someone's newly purchased car burning up.

Nice shot you got!
Q: what's the differnce btween the dark & white clouds?

Keith said...

Steffe: Not a good day at all. Hopefully it's insured.

Cafe: You mean from the fire? I'm not sure. Lots of different things to burn, lots of different fluids too.

I suppose this is beside the point, but you did a nice job of framing this.

Petrea: I cropped this one after the fact from the safety of my chair in front of the computer.

Smart.
