In the meantime, check out one of our photographers Martin Nunez's video that he has put together based on his California Missions project. Martin visited all 21 of the historic California Missions within a year, beginning in May 2011, when he visited San Francisco de Solano, a Franciscan and the northernmost California Mission founded in 1823 in Sonoma. His touring of these important and historic places ended with a visit in May 2012 to Mission San Diego de Alcala, the first church in California, founded in 1769. Martin used his Nikon D-300 SLR camera to photograph the missions, and in the month-or-so break between trips, he worked on the photos he'd just taken, using Photoshop and Photomatix software to enhance the awe-inspiring colors of the missions and their surrounding areas. Last summer Martin put together the video and is currently working on his first e-book based on this year-long journey. At our gallery, he has made available some of his fascinating Missions photos in his 2013 calendar. To visit Martin Nunez, you can also go to his website.
Come see us this month!
