California Mission Bell Heritage

This week’s  WordPress Photo Challenge is “Heritage…share a photo that channels a living tradition.”

While there are several options here in California, I select the Mission Bells that mark the trail of the California missions.  El Camino Real, if you will.

An example from downtown Petaluma…

And from Sonoma…

  1. Having visited a few of these missions, they are imbued with intense and complex personal and historical emotion and a phenomenal history of architecture. Your post makes me want to know more about the makers of the bells.
