Welcome to Farktography!

This Week's Theme:
Sacred Spaces

Description: Show us pictures of places that are sacred within spiritual belief systems. Subjects can be secular (e.g. public memorials) but must serve a nominally spiritual purpose (no sports stadiums or similar stretching of the idea of "spiritual" or "sacred").

We ask that before submitting your photos you read and adhere to the following submission rules, including but not limited to the following:
- Submissions must be photographs; screen captures do not count as photographs.
- You must be the original photographer of your entry. Do not submit anyone else's photography as your own.
- You are only allowed to enter a photograph once. Do not submit the same photo to another contest later.
- You may enter 3 photos in each contest as long as each photo is of a different composition.
- Please post each photo separately so they can be voted for individually.


Please note:
The overarching ideal behind Farktography is that image corrections are acceptable, while adding or removing elements in the image (e.g. removing telephone poles, adding Elvis) is not acceptable. Levels, curves, contrast, saturation, crop, and black-and-white conversion tools may be used judiciously, but not to cartoonish or unrealistic extremes. Avoid applying artistic filters for the purpose of mimicking film, tilt-shift, toy camera, etc type effects. HDR and panorama stitching either in-camera or in post processing are not allowed unless specified for a particular theme (true multiple exposures done in-camera are acceptable, however).See the rules for more information on acceptable modifications, or check in at the Farktography Forums.

Legal: All photographers submitting photos to this contest are the legal copyright holders for the photos submitted and the photos are not to be considered free for any other use without written consent from the submitting photographers.
- Drop by the Farktography Forum on Fark (new window) or or Farktography.com (for chatting, critique, techtalk and so on)
- Check stats or review whether you've used a photo before at Bibliostats .

My dad, having learned to play the organ over the pandemic, treated me and my sister to a concert at his Christian Reformed Church when we were able to visit him for the first time in 3 years.

My friend Laverne is a devout Catholic. When she and another friend & I went on a 2-week vacation in 2005, we made sure she could go to a service in the different towns we visited.

Angel of Grief is a 1894 sculpture by William Wetmore Story. This is a replica of that first statue. It is located at Chapman H. Hyams' family tomb, Metairie Cemetery, New Orleans, and is difficult to photograph because of wrought iron doors on the crypt, and glass, giving a limited angle of view, and difficult reflections. I have seen other photographs taken from inside the crypt, so perhaps it is unlocked on special occasions.

Los Angeles Cathedral. This ghostly handprint is not drawn or painted on the wall, it's residue on the concrete.

I've read that cedar galds were once considered the homes of spirits.  Sometimes you can still feel 'em
