Aug. 23, 2020: Fountain at the La Purisima Mission State Historic Park in Lompoc, California. The mission, founded in 1787, moved in 1812 to its current location outside of Lompoc. Later in the 1800s, the mission was abandoned and fell into disrepair. In 1934, the Civilian Conservation Corps began reconstruction of the adobe buildings. The rebuilt La Purisima Mission reopened as a California State Park on Dec. 7, 1941. Currently, because of the virus, the buildings are closed, but the park is open.
My thoughts on images past and present.
