View From Inside a Mansion

San Marino -- A woman looks out the giant window of the former residence of Henry E. Huntington (1850 - 1927), a railroad magnet and art collector. The mansion became the Huntington Art Gallery one year after his death, and the first public art gallery in Southern California.

San Marino is directly south of Pasadena, CA--10 miles east of Los Angeles.

Lots of symbolism here. Just pick a caption. And B&W was the perfect choice. Well done!

It's a wonderful image and had to be black and white.

When the guards saw you with a camera, did they chase you from room to room? I don't know how Petrea got off those shots of the Beautiful Science exhibition. They were on me like white on rice.

The rule is "no flash photography" inside the library and galleries, which forces one to use high ISO settings and a steady hand...

Thats what I thought. They were all over me at the Darwin, Greene and Greene, and Beautiful Science exhibits. One guard said I could photograph the Mansion (where they keep Pinky and Blueboy). I did get a shot of a rendered flea before they tackled me.
