Photographer's Note

On a boring afternoon we decided to take an old fashinoed Sunday drive and ended in Carmel and decided to visit the mission.
It had been 20 years since my last visit here and I fell in love with the church, it is so beautiful and at the same time devoid of frills, a pretty but humble church.
To get this photo I literally sat under the Holy water font at the entrance of the church. I havebn't had much opportunity to experiment with the lens converters I received for Christmas, however as I sat there I realized, quite by accident that by tuning one of the lens converters
backwards and holding it in front of the camera I got a wider but distorted view.
The photo is blurry because I didn't use a tripod and sitting under the Holy Water font while trying not to move was difficult. My mother and my husband were laughing themselves silly and a few unsuspecting tourists got quite a startle as I stood up.

The , Parish has wonderful historic data of this beautiful mission. It stands now as a beautiful compound only because it was lovingly resotred by a few dedicated people. Junipero Serra's mortal remains are interred in this mission. I was struck by the peacefull surroundings specially in the garden. Through out the mission there are beautiful mosaic scenes which i was pleasntly surpised to find out they were made in Portugal.

This photo was significantly cropped and resized, contrast adjusted and levels too. i pass therough Neat Image.
