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.

Do you mind if I'm a bit of a grump here?

These statues are done in duplicates and brought over from China. It's a way cities get around the act of commissioning local artist with the cities art budget. That budget was put in place to support local artists in the spirit of the WPA commissions. We are part of the economy and we use that budget to hire locals to make that vision happen. ok I'm done

Pas Adj: Grump away, I'm right there with you.
