Changed my collection from „Churches...“ to „Sacred Buildings....

Since 2014 I had a collection of "Churches around the world" from big Cathedrals which are landmarks to small churches like the one in the desert of Namibia. Ancient and young, well known and unfamous, romanic, gothic, baroque or modern, Catholic, Orthodox, Baptistan and Lutheran Churches in all their differentiation together.

But now I changed my mind and put together all religious buildings equal if church, temple or mosque. Now the visitors can make a comparison between them and can see the beauty of each.

I think it's aside from architecture the special light and atmosphere that makes the visitors be amazed. And when you see the little praying girl in a Temple of Singapore I hope every one of us understands the peaceful basic idea of each religion and is tempted to live together in peace without hate and mindless violence.
