Nice New Designs

After a few years of pretty bland cars, there appear to be a new crop of great designs coming out - unfortunately for my pocket book.
Here is the new BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe (which is actually a sedan - very sneaky, BMW)


and here is the new Mazda 6. There are better colors than white and this is just my first look at it, but it looks promising.

Maybe there is is something special about the number "6"...

Nice Driving There

Getty Museum, Los Angeles

We went to the Getty Museum in Los Angeles on Sunday, Feb 24th.  As a group, we had tickets to the Price is Right the following day, so we went up to LA a day early to enjoy the area.  For the Getty Museum, you park at the bottom of the hill and take a tram up.


A view of the surrounding hills, looking northwest.

View of LA and Pacific Ocean, looking southwest.



 
What is this?  A beautiful cactus garden!







Photography is not allowed inside, so I have no photos of the art itself.

 Looking east towards  Beverly Hills and Hollywood.


 The Oscars were getting ready to start, and a blimp was stationed over the Dolby Theater where they were to be held.
