John - The photos show nothing to indicate if it is or isn't. To determine if it is load bearing you need to determine the direction of the joists above the wall. If the wall is perpendicular then it is most likely load bearing.

Generally speaking, you cannot take out a bearing wall

At least, something has to be there to take the weight, like a beam
