Mission Santa Barbara Also known as "Queen of the Missions for its graceful beauty." Was founded December 4th, 1786, and was number ten of the 21 Franciscan missions throughout California.It was established by Padre Fermin Francisco de Lasuen. Padre Antonio Paterna was the first of many Padre’s in charge, but the first to begin building the mission.

This view is of the front of the original mission church. Notice the paintings on either side, they are the largest in all California Missions and date back approximately 200 years. If you look on the floor in the front you will see two stone plaques on the floor, these stone plaques bear the names of the early missionaries and laymen buried in a crypt below the floor.
Taken with Canon 1D Mark III w/16-35mm f/2.8L on a Gitzo GT5531S carbon fiber tripod and RRS BH-55 ballhead. Because of the wide range in tonality I made seven images 1-stop steps and processed with Photomatix and finished in CS4 Extended.

Sha Tim Police Station. I led a police raid on a drug den in a small village nearby. I didn’t realize it until the deed was done, that I had put my life in danger.

Looking towards Hong Kong from Sha Tin chapel. Hong Kong is on the other side of the mountain. My companion and rode over the mountain to Kowloon, and were greeted at mission home by the mission president who became flabbergasted at what we had done. It was a holiday, and our seniors traded companions, and we went on a bike ride. His name was Terry Jeffers, and he like me, was in good enough shape to ride the distance. The mission president hurredly sent us on our way back to Sha Tin .
