As I've said before, city reddits are great for seeing what's happening, bad or good. They comment on things the news wont.

Random photos I took yesterday, Saturday morning and Saturday night, 9.19.2020.

The mansion where music producer Phil Spector murdered actress Lana Clarkson, located on a knoll. Not far from where I live. I drive by this neighborhood often, and when the murder occurred and I found out where Phil Spector lived, I was like 'wow, so all this time, I was driving near Phil Spector's house.'

The Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, currently home of the L.A. Opera, and before the Walt Disney Concert Hall was built, was also the home of the L.A. Philharmonic. It's also used for other musical and dance performances. This was the venue for the Academy Awards ceremonies from 1969-1987, 1990, 1992-1994, 1996, and 1999. They also used to hold US Citizenship swearing-in ceremonies here---my parents took their oath of US Citizenship at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion.

This group of 3 guys were walking towards us and approached our table. One of them asked us if we were Jewish---I thought it was obvious that we weren't, but we said "No, we're not." My partner asked "Why do you ask?" And the guy said "Well it's the new year, and we wanted to wish you a Happy New Year." My partner and I said "Well, Happy New Year." They all smiled and said thank you, and wished us a Happy New Year again. We realized it was Rosh Hashanah.

The same 3 guys asked a few other tables, and I guessed they found someone who was Jewish, because they then stood around and one of them started playing his horn.

We saw a robot on the sidewalk... we assume it was making some kind of delivery.

I think the Bobcat Fire is now up to 60-something % containment.
