Today I have a journalistic photo for you. Today there were massive protests against Prop 8 in West Los Angeles, including at the Federal Building on Wilshire, which is the building in the background on the right. I heard sirens, but I didn't realize there'd be a suburban full of SWAT members driving by, so I almost didn't get this shot. In addition to the huge police presence, I also saw lots of news vans and helicopters.
I'm so happy I rode my bike today, otherwise I'd still be sitting in traffic. Every once in a while, Los Angeles has one of those days where the traffic system just fails miserably.
