The Sacred and the Profane

Challenge #1 in the Mysteria series. Hosted by Ytterboe.
Challenge has finished
Photos should reflect aspects of life which reflect something sacred and profane in a very broad sense. No religious symbols, buildings or clergy should be included. Photos must include something sacred and something profane in the photo - but both must be distinct. No photos making sacred something profane, and vice versa. Any disrespect of a sacred object will be disqualified. Definitions to assist: Sacred - 1. Set aside for a non-quotidian purpose. 2. Holy or worthy of spiritual respect or devotion. 3. Inspiring awe or reverence. Profane - 1. Everyday, common. 2. Irreverent, secular, worldly.

I find a beauty in this image not often captured. The celebration of two families coming together, the beginning of the new life cycle by the bond of marriage. Over watch by somebody reaching the end of their life cycle surrounded by love.
