14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
Mission Concepción

I wanted to capture the age and beauty of this old site. Mission Concepción was founded in 1716 and it took about 15 years to build. Most of it still is standing today. It's amazing that we still have over 200 year old buildings standing. This is an excellent example of Spanish Colonial architecture.
