These are taken at Mission San Xavier del Bac church here in Tucson. It wasn’t like any other church I’ve been to. Dubbed as the the “White Dove of the Desert Church,” San Xavier’s beauty took me by surprise. In fact, I actually didn’t even know it was located only 40 minutes from my house! Mexican and Native American aesthetic and tradition combined with Spanish influences were certainly infused into its construction; it is evident in the type of stone used for the statues and frescoes, the use of such vivid colors in the paintings, and the beautiful ornate facade. It was so different from the kind of church architecture that I’m accustomed to seeing.
It was both such a spiritual and artful experience for me. I’m hoping to come again to this beautiful place. :)
I love the mission. It’s gorgeous.

Let us introduce you to the world of rare, unusual phobias.
This photo terrifies me and I don’t even know what a lutraphobic is.
