Description On a visit to Mission San Luis Rey I captured this scene of the prayer candles before the Blessed Virgin Mary. They represent the intentions of prayer for another person. The lighting and illumination came out wonderful as I worked on the photograph to tone it and age it. I finished it off with a slight texture.Mission San Luis Rey is found in San Diego County in the beautiful city of Oceanside.USE THE MAGNIFIER TO GET A BETTER VIEW OF THE TREATMENT AND TEXTURE.

A Little Bit About Me
I became immersed in the business of art in 1989 as an owner and operator of three art galleries. Before that time, in the late 1970's, I was a marketer for Christian Graphics and Designs. Now, in the 21st Century, I have landed as a recorder and instigator of the imagination.
What I Do
I strive to capture scenes, moments, places or thoughts... and share a lasting impression to the viewer! My niche is not necessarily found in one style or theme ... but in the scenes that many might just pass right on by without noticing the small pleasures that they afford. Living life to it's fullest includes noticing those things, places or concepts that we take for granted. Perhaps we need to pause a bit more and enjoy a hot beverage along the way.
