Lovely photos. I would like to comment that I am of a heritage and tradition in which sacred spaces have long been recognized, and honored; spaces that figure prominently in our spiritual beliefs. (In fact, some of the spaces in your photos have been power places for my ancestors for millenia.) Watching the destruction and desecration of some of these spaces has been one of the most hurtful legacies of colonialization by people who did not recognize the importance of a spiritual connection to the land, and who did not recognize that our creation stories tell us that we were given these places to caretake and protect. There are still special, powerful places--even in urban areas; places where nature and Creation have carved out niches, prayer spots, holy spaces. N K
