Because it was such a gorgeous day and to test drive my new Canon 7D, Andy and I drove into Downtown L.A. for this year’s Red Bull Soapbox Derby. It’s actually the first time I’ve been back to Downtown since last March, it hasn’t changed much..
..Although having said that, the place was completely overtaken by the Derby — the hill was provided by South Grand Ave all the way from the Wells Fargo building, round the corner to West 5th to Pershings Square.
The costumes and cars were great, and the crashes even greater (how the Lady Gaga and Jurassic Park drivers didn’t die, I have no idea).
A good day in all, and was very impressed with the Canon 7D — more on that later!
