The Huntington Library- San Marino, CA

The Huntington Library is a hidden gem in San Marino, CA.  If you have never been, the Desert Garden alone is a must see.  Your visit definitely does not need to be an all day event; however, there are some great picnic spots and places to hang out and relax.  My advice, do not op for the Rose Tea Garden.  It sounds like a perfect idea, but the price coupled with the food and cramped space is not worth it.  If anything, spend time walking outside and visiting the galleries.  There is the infamous Blue Boy by Thomas Gainsborough and also now, Pinkie by Thomas Lawrence.  You can try to get free tickets for the first Thursday of the month or just find a date that fits your schedule the best.

Anyways, here are some of my favorite pictures from the Huntington Library.  Doesn't the scenery remind you of Jurassic Park?? 

I used a new online photo editor this time around. Not a huge fan, but I wanted to give it a try.  

Fly Away

 

You got a fast car, is it fast enough so we can fly away..

 

Music Now| So Here We Are, Bloc Party

In honor of their latest album, here is my favorite Bloc Party song:

So, I previewed Bloc Party's newest singles off Hymns, and I am not too impressed.. I guess I'm not a big Bloc Party fan, but that being said... So Here We Are is really good.  Just trust me and listen.
