    I didn’t know you had this wordpress blog.
    The cloudless blue sky looks perfect against the mission’s stone walls.

    Love the cross…it is so unique…and that crow sitting there like he is waiting to get past Saint Peter and through the gates…The mission shot is so pretty, but that second one has to be my pick of the week. G
