I wanted to practice taking photos using the new lens I had just purchased, so I decided to visit the Los Angeles Arboretum. It’s about a 30 – 40 minute drive outside of L.A. in the city of Arcadia. This 127 acre botanical garden is peaceful, the grounds are a photographers dream, at least I thought so. As I walked around, I saw a couple dressed in wedding attire riding on the back of a golf cart, no doubt on their way to take what were sure to be stunning wedding photos. Home to plant collections from all over the world, including many rare and endangered species, it also houses outdoor historical landmarks representative of the major phases of California history. The Los Angeles County Arboretum & Botanic Garden is a rich historical site that includes Native American, Rancho Period, and late 19th century treasures. In addition to concerts and tours, they offer activities and events that cater to every audience.
You can check out what I captured in the slide show below. Enjoy!!
