This week I was invited to leave the extremely cold climate of Montreal to hop on a plane going to sunny California for the Lakers-Boston game at the Staples Center. I was pretty excited for this trip because I knew I would be skipping a couple snowstorms, blizzards, and avalanches. The weather in L.A. was beautiful, I got to see some friends, meet some cool people, eat great food, and, most importantly, take pictures of cool things. I saw so many cool things that picking my top 5 was pretty difficult. Maybe next week I will hit you guys with part II. Enjoy!
