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.
