Duomo di Milano

After a 3 1/2 hour train ride through the Alps we arrived in Milan. The forecast for the day we arrived was cloudy and rain. Luckily it had rained early in the morning so by the time we arrived the rain had stopped.

After checking into our hotel and dumping our bags we headed out immediately and made the Duomo our first stop. I always find that dull, grey days make great black and white images and that’s exactly what I was pre-visualizing.

Vintage Mission

Happy Monday! I hope you had a wonderful weekend. Here’s another view of the grounds at the Carmel Mission. This is the path that leads by the side of the mission through the graveyard to the main courtyard. I used a texture overlay (by Joel Olives ) to give the image the look of a painted canvas which I thought suited the scene. Let me know what you think.

I posted another ‘Mission’ image on my Facebook page over the weekend. You can click here to see it. While you’re there consider giving my page a “like” as I will occasionally post images there that aren’t on my blog.

Carmel Mission

This is the Mission San Carlos Borroméo del río Carmelo or as it’s better known, The Carmel Mission. The mission was first established in Carmel in 1771. The Carmel Mission is considered to be the most authentically restored Franciscan mission. It’s courtyard and gardens are just beautiful and even with lots of people roaming around was very peaceful and serene. This is the front courtyard and facade of the chapel.

St Joseph’s Oratory in Montreal

I was back in Montreal a couple of weekends ago and while I didn’t get as much time as I would have liked to get out with my camera I was able to sneak away one evening and head to St. Joseph’s Oratory. The oratory’s dome is the third largest in the world after the Basilica of Our Lady of Peace of Yamoussoukro in the Ivory Coast and Saint Peter’s Basilica in Rome. It’s the largest church in Canada. This was one exposure converted to B&W using Topaz Black & White Effects.
