San Francisco de Asis – New Photos of an Iconic Place

Georgia O’Keeffe described it as, “one of the most beautiful buildings left in the United States by the early Spaniards.” It was the subject of four of her paintings. It was also photographed by Ansel Adams and Paul Strand. It is one of the most photographed and painted churches in the country.

Like many places that have been photographed endlessly, I hope to find some perspective, or at least create an image, that is different from all the others. This post will be different also in that instead of focusing on the Nikon D700 or the iPhone 4s, I’ve blended the two together into one post. I hope that I’ve added something different to the plethora.

  1. Very nice Russ. It is as if you were able to capture the voice of the Lord either through nature or acts of his people. Some of your finest as it feels alive.

  2. Such a beautiful place and quite a coincidence this morning. I was looking through my photographs of this church and a trip to Taos from 20 years ago for the Weekly Photo Challenge: Nostalgia when I saw a link to your blog in my reader. Thank you for sharing such beautiful images.
