The Mission in Carmel

This weekend brought me to Carmel. Carmel is known for its quaint shops and art community, but Carmel was orignally started as a mission by Father Junipero Serra, who blazed a trail of missions from Mexico to San Francsico.

Night Photography

Did not go on a trip this weekend, so i decided to brush up on some night photography. Maybe the lighting was not right for night photography, but will work more on this skill in later adventures.

Maryknoll Residence

I decided to drive to Rancho San Antonio this weekend. Across the park entrance was a structure that I could see from Interstate 280 and I have always wondered what it was. Curiosity got the best of me and I went to check it out. The structure was the Maryknoll Residence. Maryknoll missionaries are part of the Catholic Church. I took advantage of the nice clear day and took some pictures.

I then went to Rancho San Antonio to take some pictures, but the battery warning wielded its ugly head as I started shooting. I got a couple shots in before the camera gave out. Maybe it is time to invest in an extra battery.
