In 2015 I took my nephews and nieces to visit San Gabriel Mission. I took some photos here and there but I didn't dedicate enough time to really photograph the place. I thought to myself that I would have to come again alone and photograph this mission to add to my collection. I woke up this morning to the bad news that the church part of the mission which is basically the history part of the mission was burnt down.
I had to dig up my unsorted files from 2015 to find photos of the mission. I am very said that I didn't dedicate my time to this mission. It will be years before they restore this mission. Learned my lesson, I better photograph is well the first time and if I am not satisfied then come back again.
