Description Mission Espada in San Antonio, Texas.....Captured with a Canon 5D Mk III and a Canon EF 24-105/4L IS lens.....Mission San Francisco de la Espada (also Mission Espada) was a Roman Catholic mission established by Spain near San Antonio de Bexar in northern New Spain in 1731 to convert local Native Americans to Christianity and solidify Spanish territorial claims in the New World against encroachment from France. Today, the structure is one of four missions that comprise San Antonio Missions National Historical Park. Founded in 1690 as San Francisco de los Tejas near Weches, Texas and southwest of present-day Alto, Texas, Mission San Francisco de la Espada was the first mission established in Texas. There are older missions currently in West Texas, but they were in Mexico at the time they were established.
Inge Johnsson, Frisco (Dallas/Fort Worth area) Member Since November 2009 Artist Statement I have been photographing the beauty of North America, its natural scenery and its cities, for over 20 years. As you can tell from my portfolio, my travels have taken me to many parts of this continent as well as other fantastic places around the globe. My photographic work has won awards and has been published in books, calendars and magazines.
Originally from Sweden, in beautiful Scandinavia, I moved to the United States in 1993. I have primarily lived in the Seattle and Dallas areas, and currently reside in Frisco, Texas.
My portfolio is mostly in color, now using a full-frame digital SLR after shooting film for many years. I touch up my “digital negatives” in Adobe Lightroom & Photoshop to recreate what I felt and saw when the capture was made, and to make the images ready for printing.
I do enjoy many types of photographic subjects and styles, but it is my love for the natural world that really gets my heart pumping and creative juices flowing. Some of my influences are Ansel Adams, David Muench and Jack Dykinga. When exploring the natural world around me, I always try to capture the essence of time, place, and of course light!
