Pasadena Photowalk

The Tournament of Roses parade is right around the corner, January 1 to be exact, and thousands of people will invade Pasadena, California to check it out, along with the Rose Bowl game.

Good news: Your Photowalks guy to the rescue!

I recently spent two days in the L.A. suburb (10 miles from DTLA) with my pal Dave Basulto from @iographer, doing the parade route and checking out the town’s sites.

My inspiration for the video started with my new friend Jean, who invited me to Pasadena for a visit, and pal Chris, who told me of his plan to spend New Year’s Day watching the parade. Thanks guys!
