A Pair of Crosses

I warned you earlier I have a thing for crosses - I find them wherever I go. I like the symmetry of the two crosses and the far near effect. These crosses can be found at Tumacácori National Park outside of Tucson Arizona. Tumacácori is perhaps the most mispronounced word I know of - so don't worry about pronouncing it correctly because nobody does.

The Tumacácori Mission was established in 1691 by Father Eusebio Francisco Kino. It was established one day before the Guevavi Mission, making it the oldest Jesuit mission site in southern Arizona and there are some really cool things to photograph there.
