Photographer's Note

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"
-"Burn Down the Mission" Elton John
