Photographer's Note

Listening to her iPod, this young archeologist takes a rest and seems to be bored to dig the yard of Mission San Diego de Alcalá. In the workshop there is other view of the archeologic field.
Founded by the Balearic Fray Junípero Serra in July 16, 1769, Misión de San Diego de Alcalá was the first of Alta California's Spanish missions (later Mexican, before US conquest). It's now one of the highlights of historic San Diego (California, USA).
One plaque on a wall you can read:
Reconstructed by the generous aid of the citizens of San Diego, 1931. Fully restored by the Charity of the Hearst Foundation, 1946. Rededicated to the glory of God and the salvation of souls by its re-establishment as a parish church under the title Mission San Diego de Alcalá, 1941.
