#FriFotos: Holy Places

Hindu Temple, India

I am not a religious person. So, I’ve traveled around the world with a bit of curious reverence toward places of worship. We may be brought up in one religion to believe that is the one religion, that there is one god (God). But I’ve seen so many different interpretations of god (gods, God).

The cynics in the world are not alone when they point out the strife caused throughout human history caused by religious differences. But in viewing these photos, what I see is a commonality of cultures.

Charleston, SC is known as The Holy City (due to great number of steeples that dot the landscape)

Candles lit for loved ones, Chartres, France

I see humanity reaching for something divine.

Catholic Church, Quito, Ecuador

For me, that most spiritual place has been rooted in the beauty on Earth.

For there, how could you not believe in something (Something) greater?
