A Day Off
Not a day off from posting a photo, just a day off from posting a photo about Monrovia. I thought it might be fun to sneak in something different. Maybe I wanted to show that Monrovia, while integral to me, isn't the only subject of my photos.
So, on a recent day off, I drove up the coast to the La Purisima Mission in Lompoc, CA. One of the California Missions, La Purisma is huge, beautiful, restored and I can't recommend it enough as a place to take photographs. The city of Solvang is close by for a good meal and to stock up on pastries. Makes for a great day trip from the L. A. area.
In a way, it was like going back to the beginning for me. When I first started taking photography classes, La Purisima was our first field trip and the first time I went somewhere for the sole purpose of taking photos. It only took me about 22 years to make it back.
