LA HIDEAWAY: Greystone Mansion

Los Angeles is a fantastic place. It's vibrant, fun, upbeat, easy going, and so much more but sometimes, it can feel like a really small town. Coming from New York, that isn't a feeling I enjoy. As I've established before, I like to slip away from reality and find a place of fantasy. That is where I am my happiest. 

These are the times when I find a beauty place and make it my own. I strolled along the garden at Greystone Mansion as if it was my garden. As if it was a secret that only I (and the camera) had access to. I walked, skipped, danced, explored like my inner child yearned for. It was so much fun and so beautiful that I could almost forget I was in the middle of the city. It's not until you look out in the distance that you see the L.A. and even from there, you feel safe from the hustle and bustle. Almost like a princess in her castle looking upon her kingdom. 

It was the perfect place for an afternoon hideout.
