Boarding the plane in NYC. I freely admit I overpack for a trip.
The Virgin America's in-flight entertainment system had to be rebooted, so here goes the console messages...
Took this shot mid-flight. Gives you an idea of the "mood lighting" Virgin America is famous for.
Jean's Sociabl "office"...
... and his design board.
Tamara, hard at work.
"What do you want from me?"
One of the strangest bathrooms I've seen. Apparently, though, none of the women use the bathroom.
The famous Venice apartment, only two blocks from the beach!
The gaming master's setup.
Getting ready for our trip Out East.
Apparently, Jean still uses this...!?
Balcony. Done in a typically Southern California "it never rains here" style.
All-important parking space.
The apartment complex Jean and Tamara lived in.
See how close the beach is?
Utilizing my new 14-140mm lens, zoomed up. That's the beach.
On our return trip, we saw a model shoot.
Yum, tasty vegetarian authentic Chinese food. I so rarely can eat Chinese fare that actually tastes delicious.
I love wide-aperture shots of food. :)
The unassuming strip mall in which the authentic Chinese place was located. 'twas full of mostly Chinese people.
Mud spattering from the day before in Indian Wells. (How, you ask? They were watering the grassy parking lots. Why, I have no idea.)
Ping-pong back in the office!
Now I'm facing The Gamer.
I gotta focus on the ball.
One last walk on Venice beach.
