I found my way over here from Constance....I have often thought of documenting roadside shrines. We have many...I think because we have a large Mexican population and the traditions they bring, but this has carried over to everyone.

Yes I agree. In Italy I saw the one of the most beautiful sights ever, a grave yard at night all aglow with candle light.It was like nothing else I had ever seen.


Dear Jenny,
The first time I ever saw a shrine was in Italy when I was 20 yrs. I thought it was cool. Even little boxes along the sides of the road that you can do prayer mercies at. Have you ever seen?

Shrines exemplify the sacredness of life!

I too see car accident shrines, even here on the East Coast. Unfortunately with fake flowers.

I like shrines of all kind. Especially the ones for the Day of the Dead. I think it is important for all of us to remember and cherish another's life after they have left this earth.
