My friends complain that I take too many photos of food. Perhaps they are hinting as to the cause of my heavy frame but I take it in stride. I love food and photography, one has got to do what makes one happy and that’s me.
Unfortunately, I haven’t taken photos of pots. Perhaps I haven’t seen pots of consequence lately. I remember seeing them in museums like in the Thomas Jefferson’s home in Charlottesville, VA but thinking, like many photos I have taken, they’re left in my album just like that – museum pieces but never to be seen again.
But for this challenge, I have a perfect pot. This was taken at San Juan de Bautista Mission Church in California.
It was said that during the time of the mission, they served more than a thousand meal each day. So am not really sure if this pot was dedicated to just making candles. Am sure it multi-functioned to cook some meals.
The mission itself is huge, bigger than any I’ve seen so it’s not surprising that meals were communal.
