I wasn't the only one at the bottom of Echo Park Lake. You might have already seen this amazing video from KPCC's Grant Slater:

We were also lucky enough to be joined by inimitable photographer Gary Leonard, who joined us on Off-Ramp when he opened his Downtown gallery. Above, you'll see a slideshow.
