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.

Snow Day


Not a recent photo, this was taken from higher up in the Angeles National Forest above Monrovia Canyon Park back in 2006.

2012 Monrovia Holiday Parade


A good crowd turned out for the parade last night.  Here's Truck 101 heading up the parade route.


The Grand Marshall this year was five-time Olympic medal winner (3 gold) Kim Rhode.


And, of course, Santa.

Tree Lighting


Mayor Mary Ann Lutz and the first tree lighting ceremony for the new tree in Library Park.  This new tree, donated by Home Depot, replaces the one lost in the wind storm just over a year ago.
