Round Robin Photo Challenge - "Holy"

Fresh (almost) daily from Julie Barrett


This is another that got lost in the Great Database Glitch of '06, but I think I can get the pictures back at least:

I love cemetery art. It shows an outpouring of grief combined with a hope for a better tomorrow. This was taken at Old St. Louis No. 2 Cemetery in New Orleans:

A church exterior in downtown Austin. It was after sunset. I love the way the light comes through the windows:

S.S. Mary's and Patrick's Churck in Avoca, Ireland. Sharp-eyed UK TV fans will recognize it as St. Joseph's in Ballykissangel:

One for the Star Wars fans: Organic chocolate;

dagoba

According to the label, Dagoba means "temple of the gods."

And finally, a bit of a play on words. This is my mondo knee brace. I was wearing it at bowling last night when someone on the opposing team remarked how it must be my religous brace because "it's holy." Ugh.

I don't think I've ever seen a "bad" stained glass in a church.. think I'll pass on the "hot chocolate" even if it is holy! lol

I'm going to have to take another look from the laptop. The computer here at work darkens things too much, and I want to appreciate these properly. And the brace reminds me of the "sacred spoon" I grew up with, named that by me for the obvious reason.
