Do you remember the other day when I mentioned that when we were in LA we visited the bench that was featured in 500 Days of Summer? Well, here we are! For those of you wondering it's in Angel's Knoll park in downtown LA; right next to the trolley that goes up the hill. Once you get into the park it's sort of hard to miss the bench since there's a pretty conspicuous plaque on the back of it. After we snapped a few photos there were some other folks who came along and were clearing doing the same thing we were. It's apparently quite the attraction.
After sitting in the park for a bit and enjoying the view we walked over to the Bradbury Building, one of our favorites in all of Los Angeles. It wasn't our first visit but I'm always awed every time we go. Once when we visited we were the only people there and the guard let us ride the elevator up to the top (there may have been a small bribe involved in that). It's probably best known as the Blade Runner building but once we were there we realized that it also has a 500 Days of Summer connection. It's where Tom goes for his job interview at the end of the movie.
