Photo Challenge - Day 8

This is LA, people. So, it's not unusual to see filmings taking place throughout the city. Specifically, in San Pedro, where we live, I've heard that they film 300 days out of the year. In fact, I found a blog that lists a lot of the movies and tv shows that are filmed down here - a lot I never knew about. Two really popular locations to film at are just minutes from our house.

Grant takes the bus in the mornings, and the bus goes by both of these locations. So sometimes, he'll tell me that he sees film equipment set up, and I usually go check it out.

Today was one of those days. So, I went down to White Point (which is where we took our picture for the Christmas card), and sure enough, there were lots of trailers and tents and crew scattered around. Turns out, they were filming the tv show Bones, which I've never watched, but it's still cool to see.

A couple months back, and just down the road from White Point, they were filming the tv show Numbers, which is another one we don't watch, but I was curious to see how the location was used in the show. So, I set the DVR to record it every week, and finally saw the episode. It's just cool to see the place you live on tv!

The rocky area sticking out in the water in this first picture is where we go tide pooling every now and then.


  1. I saw an episode of NBC's Life being filmed at the Del Amo mall a couple of months ago. It's the Christmas episode, so it should be airing soon. But, like you, I don't watch it, so I'll never know how our little mall shows up on camera. :o)

  2. can i just say again how much i love LA!
    the best is when you're watching an old movie you know and love and you suddenly realize certain scenes were filmed right down the street from you.
