Welcome to Farktography!

This Weeks Theme: "religion & spirituality"

Description
: Photograph churches, synagogues, mosques and any other places of worship or items and symbols that are important to any religion or your own personal spirituality.

Please remember folks - this is a just-for-fun photography contest, not a personal beliefs contest. The photos in and of themselves don't necessarily act as an endorsement of the pictured belief system.


We ask that before submitting your photos you read and adhere to the following submission rules:

- 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 subject/composition.

- Please post each photo separately so they can be voted for individually.


Ideally, your photograph should be presented as taken with as little alteration in Photoshop or other image editing programs as possible.

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.

To have your photo website listed on the Farktography home page, please send your fark username and url to farktography(at)undergroundbastard.com and we'll get you up forthwith. (also, indicate if you're willing to share your photographs for use as source images in PhotoShop contests)

for bobroberts who can't be here tonight:

Osore-zan (meaning "fear mountain" in Japanese) is located in the crater of a volcano on the northern tip of Honshu and is one of the most sacred places in Japan. The Japanese make pilgrimages there to speak to their dead loved ones. The piles of stones are said to be used by the spirits of dead children as stepping stones to the world beyond Usori lake. Very sulphurous, and with creepy goodness.

#2 for bobroberts:

Statues of foxes, called Kitsune, are placed at the entrance to Inari shrines. Inari is a Shinto God, and the Kitsune are supposedly his/her messengers. (Looks fake because of the 10 second exposure taken at night.)
