Nov 30 - Mission San Jose

Mission San Jose

A closer view

I love photographing this area.

Last year they worked on the upper half of the door.  This year - the lower half.

The mortar was crumbling so it was removed and is in the process of being replaced.

There is some interesting hardware in the mission.

The famous Rose Window

This is the first time I've seen the updated altar area, which is a bit much for my taste, but it sure makes for an interesting photo.  The San Jose church is a working church that fills up every Sunday.

Nov 30 - Mission Concepcion

Some don't know that there are four other missions besides the Alamo in San Antonio and my friend, Andrea, and I visited two of them on a lovely day.  This is Mission Concepcion - not as fancy as the much larger Mission San Jose, but I like it better.

This is on the ceiling in one of the rooms.

The inside of the church looking toward the back of the church.

This light hangs at the front of the church.
