Mormon Temple

This Mormon temple is just outside San Diego, California. Its a striking building and made me feel like I was in a fairytale when standing next to it.

I could not figure out how to get on the property; I did not have permission, especially to photograph. While standing at the gate pondering my situation a woman appeared and asked if she could help me. I explained that I was hesitant to enter the grounds and take photographs without permission. She looked right at me and said "Sometimes it is better to ask for forgiveness than permission", and then told me to come in.

That was excellent advice, I now live my life by that code.
