Yesterday my friend mentioned the weather's been especially nice because the air is clear. I said, "I wish Pasadena was better than LA when it comes to smog, but we do get some." He said, "It's all LA."
He's right. Pasadena is part of Los Angeles. It's a separate municipality, but a Los Angeles suburb nonetheless, only a few minutes from downtown. Many Pasadenans, myself included, work in the entertainment industry or commute to other Los Angeles area jobs.
Hollywood comes here, too. Pasadena, Altadena and South Pas are often busy with TV and movie shoots. Indications in this photo are not just the advertisement for Acting Camp at the 210 Lake Avenue offramp, but also the yellow GW sign. Its function is to direct a film crew to a location. We see this type of sign here all the time.
GW might be a TV show, or maybe a new film. Any guesses?
