The Bell Tower from the other side of the Mission. Shot vertical using my backpacking tripod. There is a way to make the tripod hold the camera vertical and now that I know the trick I will shoot vertical often. It was founded by Father Serra (buried inside the place) using local Indians as labor. Not sure if they volunteered or were encouraged with a stick but it was built in 1771. It fell apart at one time but was rebuilt later on and is now maintained using the funds from visitors and the gift shop which appears to have a lively business. You can go to church there if your Catholic or just want to.
