Photographer Colin R. Brown, who is known for his eerie pictures of the Griffith Park Fire, was heading to lunch downtown when he came upon the aftermath of a bank robbery. He e-mails us so share what he saw yesterday.

J-Bird and I went for lunch at Clifton's Cafeteria and Bank of America was robbed. I thought the red was blood but of course it's from an ink packet. When the ink pack exploded the stack of 20s were abandoned on the sidewalk.
