Have a good look around. The picture was taken from the public street. The window is in full view of the public passersby.

By the way, if you find yourself visiting Old Town Pasadena, check out the Gold Bug. It's a fascinating little store, and though a little pricey, is full of one-of-kind objets d'art. Definitley worth checking out. I go there for all my Amazonian beetle displays. And the store owner has nothing to do with any of this. He's a nice guy.
