Mission San Xavier del Bac.  It seemed like hundreds of photographers were present with their camera and tripods capturing this moment.  The scaffolding was taken off for the first time in what seemed like years.The Mission is located about 10 miles south of Tucson, AZ on the Tohono O’odham San Xavier Indian Reservation.  The mission was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1960.

A long-time passion, I’ve held a camera in my hand for as long as I can remember. Capturing “the moment” is my goal, whether it be people, wildlife or a beautiful Arizona sunset. I am originally from NYC but now live in the desert southwest.
Thank you for viewing my images… I hope that you enjoy!

    I like this one better with the pink in the background!!!

  • I do too, but I took these shots from 4PM-7:30PM so the light kept changing. I have many more shots to go through as the light was different in every one. But… I do agree with you!
