The above shot is from Mission La Purisima, which is in Lompoc. This mission really stands out because of its exterior, which is painted pink. Also, in comparison to some of the more elaborate missions, such as Mission Santa Barbara and Mission Carmel, La Purisima is very simplistic in its decor. I LOVE this shot because the door is so inviting to visitors.
This is a shot of Mission Dolores, in San Francisco. I am not very religious, but when I do go to church, this is the place I frequent. This is where I attend mass. When I am inside this church, I feel such comfort. There is only 1 place that I feel completely at ease; it is in San Francisco. Over the years, I have traveled all over California, documenting the missions with my trusty camera. These 3 pictures are part of that documentation.
