12"x12" Mission San Jose $225.00 SOLD

This will begin a new series of the San Antonio Missions.  This is Mission San Jose.  We ran into a little glitch trying to photograph this mission. I figured that the afternoon light would be lovely between 5 and 6 pm that day.  I like a late afternoon light because it makes for long dramatic shadows and if you hit it just right, you get a golden glow just before the sun goes down.  Unfortunatley, the mission doors CLOSE at 5 pm!  So we arrived just in time for some beautiful light but very limited access to see the mission.  Obviously this view is from outside the walls, but ever the optimist, I tried to make lemonade from a lemon of a photo shoot--plan to go back soon!
