  • $\begingroup$ Is the title also a clue? $\endgroup$ – Beastly Gerbil May 17 '17 at 15:53
  • $\begingroup$ @BeastlyGerbil not really. It might help you get on the right track, but it's not a clue of what the answer is. $\endgroup$ – David Starkey May 17 '17 at 16:03

Here's what the pictures are:

  • The nave of the Episcopalian church called Christ Church, in Detroit.
  • A diorama, in the Los Angeles Natural History Museum, showing beavers building a dam.
  • A model of a kind of ship called an anchor hoy.
  • A performance by "The Goin' Band from Raiderland" at the start of a 2008 game of American football featuring the Texas Tech Red Raiders, at their home ground which is called the Jones AT&T Stadium.
  • Generic clip-art of a boy (so far as I can tell).
  • A skateboarder doing tricks on a floating skateboard ramp on Lake Tahoe.
  • A messy teenager's bedroom; this picture seems to accompany multiple articles about messy teenagers and their bedrooms :-).

So:

the word might be AGE, forming dam-age, Anchor-age, band-age, ramp-age and mess-age. I don't currently see any connection with the church or the boy, but enough of these fit that I bet this is right.

Thanks to suggestions in comments, here are some suggestions for the others:

Man-age (perhaps it's not a boy, though it sure looks like one to me). Bever-age (ouch). Mass-age (but there's no service going on in the church and it probably isn't the sort that calls its Eucharists masses).

That seems reasonably conclusive.

    $\begingroup$ The boy could also be a man to support your -age theory. $\endgroup$ – M Oehm May 17 '17 at 16:30

    $\begingroup$ Oh, and bandage, of course. And maybe massage, but that's quite a stretch, because the church is empty. $\endgroup$ – M Oehm May 17 '17 at 16:47

    $\begingroup$ I mean massage, @AlwaysConfused, because message is already covered by the mess in the teenager's room. Mass is a religious service of the Catholic Church, but there isn't any service going on in the picture and the church isn't Catholic. $\endgroup$ – M Oehm May 17 '17 at 18:12
