I quoted the first post above to remind those who tuned in a while ago that I have been refining the days of our vacation over the past few weeks - so, it might be worth looking back to see if I added some images since the last time you tuned in.

I also wanted to take this opportunity to thank @mich40 for giving me information in advance of the trip that helped make the vacation as eventful as it turned out to be. She provided three stories in particular that made our visit to Las Vegas, Death Valley, and the 2nd half of our LA stay more successful and enjoyable. I will pass those along now to everyone who wishes to have them in case they ever want to make a similar journey and/or just to have more background on some of the U2-related elements of each place.

Las Vegas area where the ISHFWILF video was shot:

Our images and descriptions of the first two are on the previous page; the "Streets" video site is above.

I also have to thank @andryu2 for being the best traveling companion a person and fellow U2 fan could ever have. We were fortunate enough to spend Christmas and New Year's together as well in the Northeast US, and visit #3 is not too far into the future - stay tuned... 😎

Thank you for having done all the planning for the trip (I only came with the idea). Thank you for driving all the way from LA to Las Vegas, then all the way from LV to Death Valley and then all the way from DV to LA.

Special thanks to the most wonderful band in the world (Do I need to say which?). If it weren't for you, both of us would have never met.

😊

Hello all! 😎 Back in late October/early November, I made a trip to across the country to parts of the American Southwest that I had not visited before. A fellow U2 fan and good friend decided to

You're very welcome! 😊

Yes, we have yet another reason to thank our beloved band. Thank you, U2 - you are the gift that keeps on giving. 😎

...and as a P.S. for this thread so far, if Apple ever fixes their glitch that rotates size-reduced pictures by 90 degrees, there are many more photographs that were meant to compliment the day-to-day descriptions offered above and on the previous page. So, there may be more coming - the ball is in Apple's court now.

...and I'm going to bump this because part 3 of our adventure is coming up soon, and I am hopeful that the next iOS update will fix the rotation problem so that reduced pictures from our past, present, and future can appear here looking as they should.

Stay tuned...

I’ve had the rotation problem in a couple of places and have found if I edit the photos in a photo editor app, the issue resolves. It’s an extra step, but it does help prevent delays in posting.Β

August is fine, but September and onward will be immensely lucky!

...and it wasn’t for the persistent picture rotation issue. πŸ™„

Maybe next month...

Unexpectedly, an iOS 13.7 was just released today. Will this help? Let’s find out...

Β 

...and I tried out a couple of test pictures. There has been some progress!

Now the pictures that are reduced in size before posting are rotated by 180 degrees instead of just 90! πŸ˜†

Oh well...iOS 14 is out later this month - maybe that will be the cure. πŸ€πŸ€πŸ€
