During a friend's visit to Arizona a few years ago, we toured throughout the Tucson area, stopping by different missions and churches. Because my friend is not a photographer, he had no desire to wake up early for the perfect morning light so I was photographing during the mid-morning light. This light tends to be much cooler and blue rather than warm.

The Tucson mission are unique and beautiful. Some are quite pretty with the the white wash walls, arches, domes and crosses. With this mission, I loved the look of the curves of the arches with the curve of the top of the structure, so I worked with the composition to create a comfortable image.
Being that the sky was blue and nondescript, I added a texture layer from Flypaper Textures. In this case, the texture layer was blue and pink, adding a bit of warm to this image.
