Saturday July 10th was the monthly Group Shoot for the San Diego DSLR Photo Group. This month we went to the Mission San Luis Rey de Francia, in Oceanside (north of San Diego). The mission was founded in 1798. Unfortunately, most of it is closed off to the public, and no photography is allowed inside the museum or the church. It was also quite overcast, but still bright, so the sky was about as white as the building, making for some pretty boring or ugly shots anytime you included too much sky (like in the shot below).
Since there was so little color, I switched to black & white, and tried to get a bit closer to things.
Reddish bougainvillea leaves take on a real interesting look though a blue filter.
