Special Thanks:
To Blair High School in Pasadena and the students that we met on our visit.  The PlaceLA gives back to the school and its students wherever possible.  We also owe an extra special thanks to our trusty lens-keeper, Rich Allen from Sagittarian Images for coming down to Pasadena on this cloudy yet beautiful LA day.  Where was this truck yesterday on 4/20?  Kicking myself because, we should have looked ‘em up on Twitter.
