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.

Dr. George Fischbeck Includes Monrovia In His New Book


A version of this photo, from the 2010 Monrovia Day Parade, is in his new book: Dr. George: My Life In Weather by Dr. George Fischbeck and Randy Roach.

I grew up watching Dr.George do the weather on channel 7, as did a lot of others.  He was unlike anyone else and the weatherman to watch.  I can still remember him, hand over heart, like it was yesterday.

Pick up the book and see why he's a local legend.  Read about his life, his accomplishments, the millions of dollars raised for multiple charities and see the photo of his visit to "his friends" in Monrovia.
