Lomo adventures, pt. 8 - Hearst Castle

We've been back from Los Angeles since Tuesday night but I've been on the verge of getting sick all week (and still am) so it's taken me a few days to get film developed... I finally got out of the house, so now I can share photos from our trip!

My favorite part of visiting Southern California was stopping at Hearst Castle... ahhhh - I want to go back right now! Actually, I want to move in!!!!!!!



We took Tour 2 - and I snapped about a zillion digital photos that I will definitely share - but in keeping with the Lomo adventure series, here all the film photos from the day!

Celestial Suite

And by far, hands down - the very best room in the house - the Celestial Suite .... 360° of those glowing windows - no camera could possibly capture the amount of warmth and just plain old dreaminess of that room. I died. Really and truly.


Okay, more to come! Fore sure you'll be sick of Hearst Castle when I'm through with you!

Oh man. The want (let's be honest now...need) to live in a castle-like house has now returned. Where is a frog for me to kiss?

Mel said...

WOW looks so lovely! Is that a swimming pool?!

I've been to Hearst Castle! I was a teenager at the time, and looking through these picts was like turning back the clock.

they are gorgeous.

Anniina said...

What a beautiful place that is. These photos are fascinating.

Oh my goodness, it's fantastic!! I'm so jealous, I'd love to see this in real life. Although your photos do a pretty fantastic job! I recently listened to a couple Hearst themed podcasts, including one on the Hearst Castle. It's all so great!

Oh wow, you took some really beautiful pictures! :)
I went to Hearst Castle when I was about six years old, so i can barely remember it, but I do specifically remember that suite! It was amazing! I need to go back to Hearst one day. :)

I don't think anyone who loves castles ould possibly get sick of those photos and the more to come. Looks like a beautiful place to visit. Was it terribly expensive to go in? I always loved visiting castles in the UK but the entrance costs got too much so a view from the outside was as much as we managed for a fair few.

Oooooooo--thank you for this! I visited Hearst Castle when I was 12 and still remember it. That pool! Your photos in the bedroom with all the glowing light are unbelievable--just beautiful! I'll be watching for more.

Sarai said...

Wow, these photos are gorgeous. I haven't been there since I was a teenager, but I really hope to go back someday. So amazing.

rebekka said...

Those photos are so good. I went there about this time last year and haven't been able to stop thinking about it.

My FAVORITE part was the way they had the table set, with the ancient bottles of catsup. And the theater room...watching the old "home"movies of all the guests frolicking around the castle...you could almost feel their ghosts...sigh...I'd love to go back!

Kelley Anne said...

These are amazing. I love the last three photos especially, but they're all wonderful. I would love to go there.

cassaundra said...

hannah said...

Lara said...

Hearst Castle is so cool! It is definitely impossible to truly capture on camera! I also loved your post on Golden Gate Park. My husband and I spent our honeymoon back in October in the SF Bay area. I really want to go back so bad!

Rosie said...

I need a lomo camera ASAP! You have such a knack for finding beatiful things to take pictures of. It couldn't have been hard in this place though! Wow, absolutely breathtaking!

Doris Anne said...

Oh my word, those photos are to die for!!
probably the prettiest thing I've ever seen in Southern California.
Thank you for sharing!

carolyn said...

Miss Woody said...

Faux Naif said...

reckless daughter said...

It safe to say that the Hearst Castle is my favorite place in California. I have been wanting to go back for ages now - I just have to convince my boy ;)

r.martin said...
