The Huntington Library

I've been bugging Amado for a "museum day" for weeks now.
We finally had a weekend with no plans and went to San Marino and to check out
The Huntington Library.
It was hotter than we expected, but it was still a fun trip.


The Desert Garden made it feel hotter than it really was. You'd think I'd be used to it since I used to live 
in Vegas but Southern California weather has a way of spoiling you, specially in the beach cities.




Kinda fell in love with this field and the gazebo at the very end of it.
I have this thing about wide open spaces. Oh and negative space.

Sorry folks for the mugshot but I'm trying to get more comfortable being photographed.
The only way to learn how to pose others is if I go through it myself.
Credit for this one goes to Amado.
He's the only one who gets to use my camera without me freaking out (in the outside at least).




After what felt like miles of walking around the gardens under the blazing sun, we hurried in
to check out the galleries and exhibits. 




The only impressionist I spotted in the room. The artist painted the same subject, 
women out in the garden so he can concentrate on the colors and light.
I feel the same way about photography.



My favorite gallery in the grounds. A room with nothing but huge portraits.

Tragic Muse



Of course Amado was drawn to this portrait. The subject was wearing a flowy dress resembling
 a kimono.






My favorite section of the museum. Yes, its a hallway but I love that its all white. And the light!
