Not really a rock, but it’s a catchy title, eh? I’m really not sure what this is.
As you can see, a lot of the writing has been worn completely away, so this is either an old shrine, or an uncared for one. It is a very tiny shrine, stuck between two apartment buildings. I assume it was there before the apartments were, but no idea. The rope is a shimenawa. It is used to mark off holy objects or areas. I like how the light was hitting this and dividing it into two halves. I brought up the shadow a little, but not much.
Despite the apparent neglect, shrines always give us a bit of an oasis in the otherwise concrete jungle that is most bigger cities.
What do you guys think about shrines? Waste of space or nice peaceful areas to escape the city in little bit?
