Good luck on your website! I notice it’s drenched in the Christian faith. Many quotes attest to your scripture and faith to the nth! You are most welcome here!

If you can’t stand sermons, skip what follows. Nevertheless, reading further might save misunderstandings. So only for that, allow me to broach the following:

We enjoy a lot of pictures of human diversity as folk travel through different cultures and the patchwork quilt of art is shared here. But it’s the images not the religions. We do not celebrate divinity, but only note what people seem to love.

Here we assume that every single person has “private values and beliefs” and we NEVER trespass on the sanctity of such individualism. In fact we treasure every divergent, (even mottled soul), here.

Here “salvation” is through deed of mutual respect, feedback, interest and especially novel photography.

In short, we are both trivial and also using our camera “vision” to hold up a lantern to illuminate the condition of society, ourselves and the fragile planet over which we have claimed dominion.

We share, but everyone here is respected equally. We have no gurus and don’t allow anyone to denigrate or dress down another on any personal basis.

Post your favorite pictures. As you might expect, we do not share images which are, by common sense, “pornographic” or which humiliate others.

Be aware that some folk might never be offended by what a super-religious person might think immodest and inappropriate. In a special section only for the human figure, folk may show art nudes from time to time. So look at titles. If explicit naked images might offend you, avoid threads with the prefix: NSFW.

People here come from all faiths. We have Nominal Christians, evangelicals, Catholics, steadfast heathens, atheists, Muslims, Jews and more.

We have in common an humility, that we are each non-perfect. So preaching is not done here by anyone, although all are knowledgeable.

I admit, that if anyone “lectures”, mea culpa, it’s me!

Most are succinct!

Jump right in! Photographs! Photographs! Photographs........and feedback!

We would love to see your work!
