On one of my late night ventures around Los Angeles, I was driving around downtown looking for one of those ubiquitous LA taco trucks that serve delicious, unhealthy food. I turned the corner on Spring and Temple and was mesmerized by the bright blue City Hall building. At first, I thought that the city of LA was honoring the Dodgers by lighting up City Hall in striking Dodger Blue. But considering the Dodgers stunk for most of the season, I figured there has to be another reason. Sure enough, this day happened to be Prostate Cancer Awareness Day. So guys, if you haven’t had a prostate exam recently, the city of LA kindly reminds you to stop procrastinating and go get it checked out. Speaking of avoiding a prostate exam, I bettter…uh, never mind.
On a side note, I would like to publicly thank the LAPD for not storming out and tackling me while I was photographing a government building in the middle of the night. While I was setting up my shot, I kept looking over my shoulder for the tripod police. I was smack in the middle of LAPD Headquarters, City Hall, and the LA Courthouse. And to top it all off, I parked in a no-parking zone. I kept thinking “Hurry up and take this photo or you will end up in jail with a fractured skull and a broken camera.” All for the sake of art. As soon as I was finished, I gathered my equipment, got in my SUV and sped off in search of that taco truck.
