Perfect Shot: Peek-a-Boo Petals

Photos by Gino de Grandis

Behind the austere gray columns, a riot of spring color awaits. PUNCH’s Gino de Grandis offers this atypical view of Woodside’s Filoli estate, where the lush landscape’s vibrant daffodils and tulips take a backseat to the historic property’s stately architectural elements. Gino says that rainy or overcast days are his favorite times to explore Filoli, “as it allows the strong saturation of colors to come through” in his photos.
