CSI: El Segundo

Note to self: Start carrying a regular digital camera when going to work.

Why is that, you ask?

Here’s why. As I was coming down the steps from the Mariposa Avenue Green Line station, I was greeted to a parked Miami-Dade police car and Hummer H2. There were cones around them.

This may not seem strange at first but when you consider that I live on the other side of the country, it is a bit odd.

It turns out that the producers of CSI: Miami are just one of the many that are in love with the city of El Segundo. Since I started working out here, there have been at least four filmings in the area, including scenes from an episode of Fox Network’s Stand-Off that was shot in front of my building.

Summary: Some scenes were shot on the Mariposa Avenue Green Line station. I was really, really close to the action. Turns out if you act cool and pretend you’re not a gawker, chances are you’ll be fine because not one person questioned me. Well, except the security guard but his was more along the lines of, “Weren’t you here this morning?” Nice guy–he let me hang around as long as I could before I had to head back to work.

My apologies for the picture quality. All were taken with the trusy LG VX8100 phone-cam.
