I know this is not the same architectural drama of the other San Xavier pictures, but it's a different view of the same place. This is a hallway in the courtyard (the arches on the left go to the courtyard). These walkways had a roof made of sticks and fences repeating the same pattern seen outside. People light candles here, as well as in other areas of the mission, in catholic tradition. You can see tile work set into the wall of the Virgin Mary.
"You tell me there's an angel in your tree
Did he say he'd come to call on me
For things are getting desperate in our home
Living in the parish of the restless folks I know"

very nice architecture, done with good taste. The light is well balanced and the B&W renders well

Good photograph, good light and the b/w does really well.

you got to be kidding me, i can hardly believe this is the inside of the photo's you've showed us last days, this looks like a cabin, not a church ;D....
cool shot with the harsh light from the left and the contrast is great...

This is great. Love the BW.
If it weren't for the electrical box on the far wall, it would look like a Georgia O'Keefe.

Nice shot. My only recommendation would be to dodge the ceiling to bring out some detail. But besides that it's a great composition and good exposure.

I like the composition and the rich range of B&W tones. The harsh light coming from the left is very special.

Nice composition, Jennifer! With that picture, we feel that Tucson has many spanish influence. Very well done!
