Shortly after this picture Ian and I  had the pleasure of running into the LAPD

“PUT YOUR HANDS ON THE HOOD!! (which was very hot) WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE!!?? ARE YOU ARMED!!??” -Officer

“No officer, just…taking pictures.” – Birdman

“Where is your car?…[I point in the direction across the tracks]…Well you cant go that way, you’ll have to go that way [pointing towards a very sketchy area]. And you’ll need to be reeaally careful where you guys are going.”
