I had someone leave feed back who was interested in
photos of the Mission Santa Barbara.
(see August 12, '05)
I am developing a tool that will allow everyone to browse the
previous photos of the day by keyword and various
other tools to allow easy navigation. I do have the calendar,
if you have not seen that, be sure to click on the link
on the upper right of the screen. That will allow you
to see thumbnails of the photo of the day a month at a time.
Now, on to the Mission. This is the Mission Santa Barbara "Queen of the Missions."
It was founded on December 4, 1786 by Father Fermin Lasuen. It was the tenth of
21 Franciscan missions in California. It holds the distinction of being the only
one to remain in continuous use since the day it was founded. Named for Saint Barbara,
and founded on the day of her annual memorial feast, it continues to operate as home
of the Saint Barbara Parish. And it is a place that always makes me happy to
be a photographer!
Here is a list of my other images of the Mission Santa Barbara
and her grounds on the photo of the day.
