Garden Statue

This statue sits in a front garden at Mission de San Diego de Alcala. This mission is California's first. Each of California's missions were located a day's horseback ride from each other, starting here in San Diego. This is just one of many beautiful spots on the Mission's grounds. Here are a few more photos, here, here, and here. This location was also used in this previous post.

I like your photograph. It looks detailed to me. It looks like real gold leaf was used in the backgroud.

Thank you for visiting my blog.

Oh that is beautiful....more cool mosaic/tile work! I hadn't noticed her when I visited. Her eyes look look so hopeful and sad.

Looks like she's all ready to catch a fly ball in the outfield, to me....

Oh, expat, how irreverent you are (but funny, too). I love the photo; it makes me feel very good to see it!
