Crayola Photo Challenge- Magenta

Me Mum is in town and we've been exploring here and there. During her annual Memorial Day (week long) trip we try and fit in an overnight. This time we stayed at a really beautiful hotel in Pasadena called the Langham Huntington. I highly recommend this place if you're looking for an overnight splurge in the lap of luxury. We felt super relaxed and as ABC said, "I like to live the high life. I could get used to this."

We stepped out of the lap of luxury yesterday to visit the Huntington Library (which includes an art gallery and botanical gardens). There were so many different colors of flowers to choose from. And while I don't want to do too many of the same subject (right Cyrena?), I couldn't resist these beautiful magenta roses.

I plan on going back when I have more time to really explore all there is to see and photograph at the Huntington. I never have enough time and would love to have a day to lazily walk about and see what I can capture. As usual, we were running late, cut it way too close and only had about 50 minutes during this past visit to the Huntington. But all three of us (me, twin and mum) had our cameras out and tested all the different settings and features to see what we could do. We did a lot in 50 minutes!
