Description: This church was photographed by Ansel Adams and Paul Strand and painted by Georgia O'Keeffe. Little wonder why! It's adobe shapes feel like handmade pottery on a large scale. When I visit and photograph it (as I have done many times), I see geometries -- everything one could want to know about geometic shapes. The light on the church changes throughout the year, and it's worthwhile photographing in different seasons.
