Arches at the mission

    Newer Older

    As you may have read in my previous posts, I really like architecture. I have enjoyed it for as long as I can remember, and with photography I find that I am always drawn to architectural elements whenever I am somewhere. I don't claim any skill in it, or deep knowledge of it - just simple appreciation. In this case I really like the arches and how they carry your eye through the photo, as well as their repetitive pattern. They reminded me of a Roman aqueduct. This was taken at Mission San Jose in San Antonio, TX. This mission is known as the "Queen of the Missions" and is one of several found just south of downtown San Antonio, TX.

      Mission San Jose is a great place. Finally went last year for the first time. I'll have to post some shot from the place in the future. Those images are from my pre-HDR days.

      Very good job on the HDR processing. I need to acknowledge one day that San Antonio has more than 1 mission and make the effort to see them.
