Filoli

Recently I've been trying to take more pictures of different subjects and styles that inspire me.  A lot of time I end up just using my iPhone since I'm so lazy to carry around my bulky SLR and It's starting to make me feel like I'm out of practice ... oops 

To get things back on track I've decided to start practicing more.  Recently I've been shooting a lot of landscapes.  It's interesting how different it is compared to all the fashion shoots ... I feel like I've forgotten how to shoot with with an actual camera ... ;)

Here's a short little trip we took during memorial weekend to the beautiful estate
Filoli in Woodside, CA. 

It's really amazing that there are so many hidden treasures around us in the bay area.  It's only about 30 mins from the city.  If you have some time you should try to check it out, but check for a Groupon first.  They usually have some good deals.  

The old architectural detail is lovely.  You can't help but imagine what life would have been like here 100 years ago when the house was newly built.  Beautiful tall ceilings with an interesting combination of decor and art.  The garden is spectacular and one of my favorite elements.

Here are a few photos I captured ... hope you enjoy them.
