Huntington Library

 

Huntington Library


 

-  Spring is a good time to enjoy  the gardens and exhibits of the Huntington Library. Admissions are a little expensive, but if we have 15 members in the group the fee is $14,00 instead $23,00. Hours are from 10:30 am to 4:30 pm, (for  me it's never enough), so we are meeting at 10:00 am to assemble the group and be a little ahead of the crowds. Don't be late if you want to get the group discount (I hope that at least 15 members show up).

I know that it's a short notice for this meeting, but there's nothing else scheduled for this Saturday and why not? Huge possibilities for great pictures. Weather forecast for Saturday places highs at 79 and partially cloudy.

For those that don't know the venue, more details: http://www.huntington.org/default.aspx

Tripods and monopods are OK in the gardens but not allowed in the galleries. Parking is free, I don't know if there's public transportation available. But if someone wants a ride from the La Fayette Park area I will be glad to help.

See you guys there!

    Sorry but I'll have to cancel. I was changing the Cf card on my camera and now I can't turn the camera on.
    Any recommendations where I can take it for repairs?

    • Cindi

      If you live in LA, you can take it to Samys camera. I don't know if you live in the Valley. Sorry to hear that.

    Weather forecast for tomorrow: http://www.weather.com/weather/tomorrow/Los+Angeles+CA+USCA0638:1:US

    Perfect!
    Bring friends so we can have a group discount, otherwise no problem, we can recruit people on the spot, as Eric suggested!
    See you all tomorrow, I'm sure that it will be the most amazing album ever produced by any Meetup group!

    you should schedule models, with big flowy dresses, get mu and hair, charge $50, and you will certainly get 25-30 people

    The library without models in it is boring
    that is why I think hardly anyone is responding

    May 15, 2013

    • Fifth Member of F.

      so I didnt mean to interfere, just thought it might be nice to get some big flowy dresses on some pretty girls. my apologies for talking harshly

      Don't take it personally. You are entitled to give your opinion, but the host has the discretion to decide how to lead the event. Alfredo is very knowledgeable and a gracious host. Thanks for your input!

    I have been looking forward to going here as I've never been. Unfortunately, I have a friend flying in from Michigan the evening of May 25, and this is one of our planned visits. Bummer, we'll miss it by one day. Have a great time everyone!

  • Eric

    Just a tip, Alfredo. If you need a few more folks to get the group rate, go up to a few people at the entrance and ask them to join you. It has been done and it works! Everyone wins!

    just went last week in the 100 degree heat...eeeek. take lots of sunscreen and don't miss the far side of the cactus garden where the hummingbirds are nesting and feeding. Also baby ducks in the pond area adjacent to the cactus garden in the back.

    • Alfredo T.

      Forecast for this weekend is 79, much more tolerable...Thanks for the tips.
