    Photograph temples, churches, mosques, icons, statues, etc. Difficulty: No sports teams.

    Theme suggestion credit goes to Killerclaw–thanks!

    I am going to try to go to the USAF Academy Chapel in Colorado Springs to get something for this contest.

    Yeah, I think all 3 of my entries will be of the Cadet Chapel. That building is incredible, and worth the drive from Denver. Make sure that it is sunny, since there is stained glass in the roof that is definitely going to be one of my entries.

    My Sigma 10-20mm f/4-5.6 got a workout there, and that wasn’t quite wide enough. Too bad the best spot to get a picture of that with mountains behind it is in the restricted cadet area.

    (Hmm, I have enough pictures of the chapel that I could put this in “Take 3” as well.)

    so if you’re agnostic do you just shoot a photo of a gray card?

    Or a blank piece of paper?

    I actually did shoot a blank wall last time around and titled it “This space intentionally left blank”. Decided not to use it, but it’s still on my Flickr.

    Hah! well played soosh.

    I suspect I’m going to have to try my luck down at the local Catholic cathedral. I was in a church last spring and didn’t burst into flames on the spot so I think I’m safe.

    Still debating doing something completely left field though. mayhap a temple to steel, if I can make the images portray what’s in my brain

    That was my main worry on this one.It’s probably been ten years or more since I stepped in a church. I was hoping some nice nature shots might pass the rules for this contest?

    Well, religious symbols can be found on the exterior of Churches, Temples, in gardens, etc. However, the original Religion theme had this 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.

    So there is some room for personal interpretation.

    This sounds pretty open….Even if you heathens don’t have a God, it seems like it would be OK to worship/photograph a body part of a loved one, yes ??

    Also….Has anyone ever prayed to the porcelain God ?

    //Partial to the divine one.

    The original Religion and Spirituality contest was Zeke’s first contest, and he did very well with a shot of soMEone praying to the porcelain Goddess.

    So, of course I had to go back and look — classy by the way — but I’m glad I did. This is going to be an archive week for me, and one of the shots I was considering was almost identical to mamoru 2006-09-06 08:47:02 PM shot. Like, same subject, same composition, same framing. I’m pretty sure I was standing in the exact same spot. Weird.

    Would cemeteries be appropriate, as well?

    shep.
