Mission Santa Barbara

I have already written about my love of old Spanish churches and missions so I needn't say more about that. We were in Santa Barbara on a cloudy, misty morning which accounts for the white skies in these photos, but the atmosphere made it even more haunting and peaceful. This mission is an odd architectural amalgam of Greek/Roman elements and typical Spanish Mission style, but it worked for me. I found it utterly beautiful and somber and filled with mystery and history.


  1. Even though I love to read your writings, these pictures tell the whole story, without words. Thank you from someone who grew up in San Antonio.

  2. Holy smokes, I was there too. Looks like you're doing my trip from a couple of years ago. Thanks for the memories.

  3. That interlaced tee is really neat. :)
