Parking lot religion

Nope. Not one damn idea what is going on here.

But I do feel the need to point out that the tire on the base of the cross is flat. Very flat. Which I assume inhibits its use as a travel cross. If a “travel cross” is even a thing.

  1. Your commentary is just as colorful as your (black and white) photography, Melinda.


  2. People who think they serve the Lord work in strange ways indeed. I hope you did another shot somewhere just of the sky. Deserves to be more than just supporting cast.


  3. There must be a gospel song about towing your cross behind a ‘44 Ford, looking for Jesus in the early morn. West Texas truckers follow the light of that cross, and Mary is waiting when they pull in for gas.


  4. Those clouds may not bode well for that poor cross.


  5. Almost makes you want to hang around to see what happens…


  6. An either ominous or inspirational photo, and I’m sure the story behind the situation would lend to either! A great find and better photo.


    • Thanks – I really don’t know what to think about this. It’s not far from the sacred site of Chimayó and over on Facebook someone suggested that perhaps the cross was used by pilgrims traveling there. But I saw it in March, just prior to Easter, when many pilgrims do visit Chimayó, and it didn’t appear to have been moved since.

      But anyway, I was happy to see it again, and with that sky for added interest!

  7. Probably waiting for the trailer hitch to arrive from Amazon.
