San Xavier del Bac, Tucson. January, 1990

I live in New England, where fading, peeling and decay look terrible, sure signs of negligence and sloth. So why, in the Southwest, do the same things look rustic and charming, adding to the ambience of the place? Here at the San Xavier Mission, for example, before its recent renovation, the wear and tear only seem to enhance the appeal.
