Mission San Juan Capistrano

Focal length: 24mm

Shutter speed: 1/60
ISO: 100
Aperture: f/11.0

About few weeks back my mom and I headed to a nearby missionary for capturing old buildings and architectures. California was discovered from Native Americans by the missionaries. I would never state it as discovered for the first time as there were people living in this land before white settlement. So these Missionaries, set out by these white settlers to spread Christianity as well as to find new land to settle in, are historic landmarks to view the lifestyle of the first white settlements in the west. The buildings and lifestyles are greatly influenced by the Native American living as well as the Mexican lifestyle. So enough said, here are the missionary pictures:
