Here are some shots from the scenic and inspiring Shrine of St. Therese, located a few miles "out the road" in Juneau, AK. If you're looking for serenity and solitude to ponder about life lessons, then this is certainly the place!
The Shrine of St. Therese is a highly spiritual and inspiring place, even to heathens like myself. The Shrine Island juts out into Lynn Canal, and I have spent many afternoons watching the waves crash on the beach, occasionally scoring the sight of whales spouting and slapping their tails in the distance. I love to listen to the crows cackle above me as I walk along the stations of the cross through the spruce trees. Every time I get a new type of film or new camera, I can’t wait to rush out to the shrine to test out my new toys.

The Lomography site brims with photos that can send phobias ablaze. It’s not entirely for the sake of being Halloween-morbid that we’ve taken up the topic. We’ve observed that these fear objects tend to be photogenic, marked by ominous vignettes and exaggerated bursts of color. The first fear especially: pyrophobia.
