Wordy Wednesday #439: “San Francisco de Asis Mission”

The above image was made with my favorite digital point-and-shoot camera, the Konica Minolta DiMage Xt. It was made when Mary and I were visiting with friends in Taos, New Mexico, which is famous for the quality of its light and one of the reasons the state is called “The Land of Enchantment.”

San Francisco de Asis Mission church is a historic and architecturally significant church on the main plaza of Ranchos de Taos, New Mexico. It was built between 1772 and 1816, it is one of the finest extant examples of a Spanish Colonial New Mexico mission church, and is a popular target for photographers such as Ansel Adams, Paul Strand and Ned Scott. It was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1970.


My book Creative Digital Monochrome Effects on shooting and processing black & white photographs is now out-of-print but is available from Amazon with new copies under $6 and used copies selling less than three bucks. The money we make from affiliate marketing with Amazon costs you nothing but keeps us online, so thank you for your continued support!
