Chocolate Thunda from Down Unda

There's an old mission in Tallahassee, supposedly from the 1500s or sometime in that era known as "really long ago," affectionately (and also officially) called Mission San Luis.

These are from that same mission, on a day in particular where all of the workers, who dress up as 1500-ians and mill about the place, were gone.  Sad day.  But very cool nonetheless.

It was a cloudy-ish day, but one of those where it's sunny underneath, so it's still kinda bright...more like a giant softbox than anything.  So it was all naturally lit, which gives it a very natural feel, and definitely is fitting for an archaic pile of rocks like this (in my opinion).
