hope for firefighters

flag hanging from fire trucks today was the annual hope for firefighters event in downtown los angeles.

this was my only salvageable picture, because i foolishly had left the camera with a fixed shutter speed that was too slow, and i didn’t notice.

as eric said over on blogdowntown, this event was one of the reasons i decided to move downtown. and as my fiancée celia predicted, we ate our way down the street. we had carne asada tacos, a hawaiian pork plate, kansas city-style pulled pork, a firehouse sundae, and an ice cream sandwich (chocolate chip ice cream with white chocolate macadamia nut cookies). all of it was excellent.

i placed a bid for something at the silent auction, and i hope we won. but we wanted to head back instead of loitering around the silent auction tables for an hour.
