The Huntington Library: a photographer’s dream

Huntington Library
The chalice is also a PokeStop

One of my favorite day hangouts is the Huntington Library and Botanical Gardens, located in San Marino, California. It’s a bit over a mile from where I live, and relatively quiet most weekdays. It’s perfect for a morning walk or to entertain the kids on no school days. It is also a great place for photography.

Anyone armed with an iPhone or other digital camera will find no shortage of subjects within the grounds, which also provide serene backdrops for photos. My favorite photos are of the kids running the green expanses that also offer views of the LA basin. Professional photography and filming are permitted, however are by appointment and require permits.

I will allow the photos to speak for themselves. These were taken using an iPhone 5S. I’m hoping to get a DSLR for Christmas (fingers crossed). But even with a so-so camera, the Huntington photographs well. I hope that you’ll have The Huntington on your must do list if you’re ever in the Pasadena area.
