I'm from Jersey, so beach and cliffs TOGETHER aren't natural to me. So I was pretty psyched by the view from the house where we stayed in Malibu (it's just about sunset). The line under the clouds is the ocean. The sky/ocean seem to blend in this photo:



Here's another brief moment without rain at Malibu Beach:



Cacti and wildflowers growing wild near the beach.



The rain would start in about 30 seconds from this shot:



We headed out to LA/Hollywood.  Since it had rained the day before, the smog had lifted and you could get great shots of LA. Last time I was there, I was much closer to the skyline and it was just a haze.



I've always wanted to see the Capitol Records building. For those who don't already know this, it's built to resemble a stack of albums on a turntable:





And one more shot... this is the only time I've ever seen the Grand Canyon, and it was from the plane.



A proper visit to the Grand Canyon is a bucket list item for sure.

And, my favorite part of the trip... the drive through the desert.

I recently took a trip out to Vegas (my first time there) and drove across the desert to LA/Malibu/Hollywood for a few days. The weather for this trip was awful. It was cold (it snowed in Vegas a couple days after we left) and rained on and off the whole trip. What I was most looking forward to was the drive across the desert from Vegas to LA. I envisioned great photo opportunities, but it was just pouring most of the way. However, there were a few minutes where the rain stopped long enough to get some shots, and even better -- the clouds were amazing. So these are not your typical desert photos. I hope one day to do the drive again and expect to actually have blue sunny skies.

I thought Vegas was really cool. I loved how over-the-top everything was, the Great Pyramids, New York City, Paris. The hotel where we stayed was the most beautiful hotel I've ever stayed at. And of course we went to see The Beatles LOVE Cirque du Soleil, which was also great. It was a quick trip in Vegas, but I still managed to lose some money in the casino (I expected to) and take a few shots of the more famous sights. But not too much venturing around on foot this trip, so these are just pretty typical shots.










This is from the top of the world's largest ferris wheel (The High Roller):





Speaking of the Beatles:

I haven't won this game in years!  ;D

5
Nice!  VFW peanuts!  ;D

All four years I was in HS Band, we never had a female trumpeter. 

Great game. I didn't think we were going to get it... but that hint really helped!  :)

As a former member of the brass section (not woodwinds which Saxophone falls under), it is the trumpet.  And what AKA may not know is that KC is an accomplished trumpeter!

8
Yes, but I don't think it's a saxophone, but you're so very close.  But, we'll wait for KC to verify.

9
 :)  I know why this object stuck out to you, KC. 

10
I think I may have it.  AKA, it's your turn though.

11
Okay, I've got the scene. But hell if I remember any objects in it!  :o

12
Okay, is there any dancing in the scene?

13
They must be off closely reading the fine print of that thread ... :D

Ehhyup!

14
Indoors. :(

Ohhhh, how'd I flip that around in my brain?

15
Okay, maybe we need a hint.  :-\

16
It's also outdoors.

17
Is it in the scene at Laton's mansion?

18
Okay that narrows it down a lot. Now what could it be....  ???

19
Yes, that's what I've got too.

KC, is it bigger than a breadbox?

Matt, do you have any ideas for strategy here. I've been trying to figure out who the object is associated with, but that strategy doesn't appear to be working, and the game is almost half over. What is your thinking about how to proceed from here?

Yeah, well it eliminated a lot of items, so not a bad strategy.
