White Dove of the Desert

Nine miles south of Tucson, Arizona sits the Mission San Xavier del Bac (the white dove of the desert) located on the Tohono O'odham reservation. It was founded in the late 1600s by Father Kino, a Jesuit priest, from a town in the northern part of Italy. The mission today is still active and meeting the needs of the local community.


  1. A beautiful picture, John... even though the ground is somewhat missing... feels like we're floating in air.

  2. Shimoz, Thanks for the commenting on my work. I like to look for the abstract nature of a place when out photographing.
