Travel Photo Thursday | Vizcaya Museum and Gardens

One of the special delights of traveling is that you find yourself in extraordinary and unexpected circumstances.  We decided to spend a little time in Miami before boarding our cruise ship the next day.  As an avid gardener and a fan of architecture, I thought a visit to the National historic landmark, Vizcaya Museum and Gardens would be the perfect way to spend the afternoon.

As we ventured through the gardens, we were surprised to see a sudden flash of candy cotton pink fabric wafting through the courtyard.  For some reason, we were drawn to it since it seemed so perfectly out of place in the gardens.

We soon learned that a young lady was being professionally photographed in celebration of her Quinceañera as her proud mother looked on.  In Latin American communities, Quinceañera marks a girl’s transition from childhood to young womanhood on her fifteenth birthday.

It was easy to understand why the Vizcaya was selected as the perfect setting for this momentous event due to its unmatched old world charm and incredible European architecture that was the ultimate canvas for this beautiful portrait.
