Retrospective: Mission Santa Ines

And of course a Door because it is Thursday……The side entry photographed better than the Main Entrance.  You may have noticed that this is Infrared.Mission_Side_Door1Mission_Side_Door2

Mission Santa Ines is located next to Solvang, California.  It was founded in 1804. I was visiting a friend in Santa Barbara back in 2017 when I made this visit.  I decided to use my Nikon-1, which was converted to full spectrum by KolariVision.  I then used an IR filter to limit the exposure to Infrared.

Church was in session, so I wandered around outside and focussed my photography there.  Obviously a full house with people standing in the doorway.

Views around the Courtyard,  Above Left to Right: St Francis, Shrine to Santa Ines, Jesus.

Finally, below, the Cemetery:

I had the Nikon-1 converted after much frustration with IR-films.  I do use IR-Sensitive Films and you’ll see some film tests coming soon.

Retrospectives are repostings of significant works from my old Photo Diary……….

And, some thought from yesterday’s Photo Diary on Windows and Walls……

We toured the New Courthouse soon after it opening in 2016.  Of course the Thursday Doors gives me an opportunity to share now with my new Blogger Friends.

Our Doors Open Denver Tour was led by then Chief Justice of the State Supreme Court, Nancy Rice, who was involved in the design of the Building.  She was a Great Tour Guide because she loved the building!

#ThursdayDoors

I realized that I had no Door planned for today.  OMG!  And I had just been sorting doors yesterday.  So I’m giving you one of my Indoor Doors.  From the Denver Architecture Foundation’s Doors Open Denver, the Evans School:

You know that I like interior spaces.  I know that I photographed the main entrance…. when I find it I will post it!
