The full title of this photograph is “Man on a Mission”. I thought it was a fitting play on words for this shadow-play silhouette in an archway of the San Xavier del Bac mission.

The San Xavier del Bac mission is in the Tohono O’odham San Xavier Indian Reservation south of Tucson, AZ.

Olympus E-3, Zuiko 14-54 mm Lens, 1/40 Sec, f/11, ISO 100

My focus as a photographer and digital artist ranges from traditional photography to PhotoArt compilation and the less explored world of abstract design created with natural elements such as smoke, oil and water.
