St. Teresa of Avila at Bodega, California

I drive through Bodega a few times on year on my way to the Northern California coast. I never really put together the fact that Ansel Adams’ picture of the Church and Road was taken there. Last time I went through I decided to take a 1/2 mile detour and see the church. I wasn’t there at a great time of day for a photograph, and I wasn’t really feeling inspired so I plan on going back to produce a much better image. But today I was just fooling around with this shot and I sort of like the feeling that it invoked. It could have been that I was also watching a documentary of a photographer who takes pictures of sacred places at the same time, but something about the spiritual aspect of the building struck me while I was fooling around with it. Anyway, here it is.

    Jon - Thanks Mindy. I don't know why the blog doesn't like your comments. I find them but they don't post right away. It makes no sense. I'm in the middle of reworking the photoblog part of my website, but with out much spare time it is taking a while. I should have it all fixed up soon, and then hopefully the new filter will show you some love. 🙂ReplyCancel
