wall shrine, with flower

I got my start as a photographer by way of a long project where I documented roadside crosses and other memorials; I think all the years of being always-vigilant for those locations has permanently set my brain to seek out similar things. I don’t think I am actively looking for them, but there were numerous times in Palermo that I’d glance over at a wall and there’d be a shrine right there, as thought it had been expecting me.

Holy, holy, holy water

A town or two up the road, there is a shrine that I think of as “Jesus in a Box.” From the looks of things, the holy water there is very holy.

No body parts


It’s nice to know that sometimes people do follow the rules: I did not see any body parts at all in this shrine.
