Picture a full parking lot of photographers focusing on a newly renovated 1797 San Xavier Mission, Tucson, AZ. Patronato San Xavier planned this dusk to 10:30 p.m. one time photo Friday op on January 9, 2009. The gleaming west tower was especially stunning.
Adding special effects was a larger than your typical full moon (which was also 30% brighter than usual.) Quite a memorable moment to share with professional as well as amateur camera-shooting individuals. The Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity living close by enjoyed the moment. And they look forward to more whitening of the exterior of the ‘White Dove of the Desert’.
Do you have any memories of being at this highly photographed place in the southwest? Have you ever visited San Xavier Mission School?
