A Look Back—Carmel Mission Archway

Photograph of a path and archway at the Carmel Mission at Carmel, CaliforniaArchways are a frequent subject of mine. I have nearly 800  pictures of doorways and archways. I must find them inviting. They invite a passage from one space to another, one time to another. This archway is part of the historic San Carlos Borromeo del río Carmelo mission (Carmel Mission) opened in 1797. Taken February 16, 2006.
