That's the lawn at Pepperdine, where students and workers set up close to 3,000 flags to commemorate the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks in NYC and DC.
Yesterday morning, dozens of people stopped to photograph, including Kelsey Grammer, below. Last night, as I drove home from work at the Times, the number had grown to hundreds. Some people stopped by the side of the road, stood on their car roofs to shoot photos. Others wandered inside the memorial, surrounded by flags unfurled in a stiff, onshore breeze.
There's a nice photo on my LAT blog, shot by a Times photog from inside the memorial, in case you'd like another view.
