Mission Inspiration

Unassuming, but bold.
Humble, yet majestic.
Small, and powerful.
Looking like it belongs on the El Camino Real with the California missions,
this iglesia pequeno in a small Arizona community
speaks volumes just by its presence in the neighborhood.
Fading whitewash against the bold blue sky,
the concrete entry walk an island in the inescapable desert sand,
a persistent beacon of hope and life
for which a young saguaro and palm mutely stand sentry.


  1. Really nice shot. So plain but striking as you said.

  2. I love the old missions. I miss the ones in Calif. Thanks for sharing this :)

  3. Yes, this one has character. I love it.
