Dining at Hearst

Instagram is Fun!

I try to post a few photos on Instagram from time to time. See my Instagram photos there. Like, for example, today I posted a photo of my daughter and I backstage at the Daddy-Daughter dance… it was really great.

Daily Photo – Dining at Hearst

“You wanna see a secret passage?” the old security guard asked me.

“Are you kidding?” I asked.

And with that, he showed me how to get up into this area. It wasn’t super-duper-secret, since this is how singers used to get up high to entertain the guests below.

I’m glad I’m not one of those people that has to choose who sits where in these big banquet events. I think people in these situations really get their nose out of joint if they don’t get to sit next to so-and-so. But, if you’re hanging out and dining in Hearst Castle, you have to look pretty hard to find something to complain about! πŸ™‚

    Nice one Trey. A great vantage point. That ceiling is amazing!

  • 500px is so cool. I think I may have found a new home.
    Here’s my latest effort.
    Be sure to read the blog attached to it for the back story.

  • Love those flags. Wouldn’t be nearly as interesting without those.

    One of my latest efforts, updated! http://roadslesstraveledphotography.com/2011/06/11/simena-sunset-revisited/

    So much detail in these shots! Imagine all those workers constructing this. And the guy making this all up! He must have a lot of imagination.

  • I’m with Matt, the flags add a lot of extra flavour (pardon the pun) to this scene – not that it’s in any way average, Hearst Castle never ceases to amaze! I wonder if they’ve ever had a foodfight in here? πŸ˜›

  • Simon Morris

    Woah, very imposing… I’d have to watch my table manners if eating there! πŸ˜‰
    Having mentioned 500px, I spent most of yesterday evening browsing through the endless array of talent – I get the general impression more people are switching from Flickr to 500px!?

  • Woah! This ones a craker Trey! Blew me away :). Awesome!

    And yeah +1 to 500px… I think I might start adding my photo’s there too :).

  • Gail in Montana

    Wow, can you imagine eating in that huge room. It would make my head spin trying to take it all in!! Thanks for sharing, Trey. Glad you got to go up to the “secret” spot to get this photo, great job πŸ™‚ Saw the photo of you and Isabella on facebook yesterday. I liked Eden’s comment on that one πŸ˜‰ . You both looked cute, lol.

  • Trey love this shot of Hearst Castle but even more I love the instagram of you and your daughter. Beautiful.

  • Vicki Wilson

    Very cool to be shown the secret room above the Banquet Hall at the Hearst Mansion, love this view makes for a great photo!

  • Very cool story and shot!

  • Very nice, I love it!

  • Susan

    Hearst Castle is so beautiful and this is another great shot you made from there! So much detail! An oh yeah – you and Isabella are pretty cute too!

  • Julie

    I enjoyed the photo of you and your daughter. I hope you guys had fun. I like this photo. I can envision watching over a group of lords & ladies or knights in the days of old as they laughed and ate and drank. Pass the Meade please.

    My latest adventure. Please feel free to critique and comment.

    I love wide-angle shots like these, awesome perspective distortion, it’s hard to discern the size of the objects at the floor level. Was that your 14-24?

  • Love it! looks very high though and secret passages are so cool, i want to go and check it out!!!

  • “They say” that if you were a guest of RH, you would begin being seated at the far end of the table and as your stay progressed you would slowly move toward the near end of the table (in your photo) which also happens to be right in front of the roaring fire. Gives new meaning to “the hot seat”. That’s when you knew you’d over stayed your welcome, or so the story goes!

    Love the photo and the perspective.

  • Les

    I’ve been here before! What a great shot! Super wide angle lense.

  • Great photo, awesome details!

  • Look at all those yummy details! πŸ™‚
