let the bad air out

The very first time I went to Shafter, the church was unlocked. That meant that I was able to wander around and take all the photos I could. It was amazing.

The very first time I went to Shafter, I met a hermit monk – Brother Pascal – who happened to be walking by. I’d just purchased one of his religious icon paintings the day before and we had a lovely chat. It was magical.

I’ve been back two or three times since then, and the magic’s gone. The church is always locked and there’s no sign of Brother Pascal.

But anyway. Here’s a photo of a slightly-open window, a couple of statues, and a big-ass insect of some sort.
