    I’m such a sucker for these adobe style structures, and I’d love to see some of these old missions some time. Wonderfu shot my friend! Cheers, S.

  • Thanks Sandra. I agree, these old adobe structures seem to radiate warmth and earthiness and are somehow very comforting.

    absolutely wonderful capture, the colour is fantastic, I love anything old and with history, and this has both. Well spotted and caught. It is very reminiscent of some seen in South America. Wonderful. hugsxxx

    You really did an awesome job with this collection Richard. This is a fave for sure. The adobe seems like it was hand rubbed smooth!!

  • Thanks Elizabeth. I really enjoyed this little adventure, and I agree with you on the great patina and textures on the old adobe walls.
