Courtyard Shadows

Photobucket

Mission San Juan Capistrano, Orange County, Southern California

Somewhere a pilgrim,
praying among the shadows,
sees a holy light.

Beautiful wall textures filled with so much character! Their light makes a wonderful contrast with the apparent smooth surface of the shadow!
