La Purisima Mission Fence

As I look back I see that my site has been the FLOWER of the day lately. So I thought I would find some good California architecture. I really like the cart and the random fence. And that is a real fence! As umm... impromptu as it looks there is real livestock in that pen.

La Purisima Mission Bell

This was taken the first day experimenting with a new present, a polarizing filter. It made the sky much more intense.

There is a never-ending supply of wonderful subjects at the California missions.

La Purisima Room

I like this room, just simple and plain. This mission has been destroyed and rebuilt at least once in it's history. Fortunately it is in pretty good shape now. It's a beautiful place.

Mission Gate

This is a gate in a wall around La Purisima Mission in Lompoc California. You can see another of my images of this mission here and read more about the mission itself. I really like the archways and shapes of this Mission.

This is a shot of the main Chapel at La Purisima mission. (or more officially Mission La Purisima Concepcion de Maria Santisima) It is the eleventh of twenty-one California missions founded on December 8, 1787 by Franciscan Padre Presidente Fermin Francisco Lasuen. This mission has undergone massive restoration, it was originally wiped out on December 21, 1812.
