This is the entrance to Mission Espada, in San Antonio, TX. It is one of the lesser-known missions along The Mission Trail, and is the smallest, but it is my favorite. I just really enjoyed being here, and taking shots of this lovely structure. I was there with my Mom and we had the place all to ourselves. I was lining up for this shot, when I thought it would look better with the door slightly ajar - you know, a small peek inside, it plays to the imagination, all that sort of stuff. So my Mom was kind enough to go inside and hold the door for me, thanks Mom!
