Old Bank District Lights

Light at OBD garage, originally uploaded by meekorouse.

Back in November of last year, I posted some photos of the Old Bank District folks unloading these screens off a flatbed truck. They were eventually installed on the OBD garage.

They were put up shortly before the rest of the holiday decorations, but unlike the decorations, these blue "curtain" lights are still up. Not sure if they'll be permanent or not, or why the curtain shape (we were thinking they'd maybe project stuff in the opening part but I've never seen anything like that).

Just in case they take it down, I wanted to make sure everyone (who actually looks here) can see how that installation turned out. I must say the blue glow in our loft is rather nicet.

Gung Hay Fat Choy!

Happy New Year!

Last Saturday we walked up to Chinatown for the Golden Dragon Parade, the annual Chinese New Year parade in DTLA. We met up with Steven, (an old friend of Sean's) for breakfast at HomeGirl Cafe (yum!) then the three of us headed over to to the Parade kickoff area to check things out, say hi to some folks and then stake our spot in front of the Chinese Historical Society building this year..

Here's a few of the images I took while we were out and about:
