the letter for today is R, so I decided my theme for today's meme would be the word religion. I've been wanting to photograph the united methodist church in farmingdale for a while. the light seemed perfect so I finally snapped away. moments later, I happened to hear the artist Sting talking about his music being a religion to him. he then went on to explain that the word religion actually means to connect. I looked it up only to find out that yes indeed,the origins of the word religion mean to tie, fasten or bind. one thing I truly admire about long island is how many religions peacefully co-exist here. in my small town alone there are at least 8 different churches and one quaker meeting house.
please go here if you would like to see other illustrations of the letter R.
