The Fate of Faith by Inebriantia The Fate of Faith by Inebriantia
The Fate of Faith

When hope leaves us alone, and times are made of dark and nebulous acts of suffering, there's always a treasure left forgotten in our void of existence...

It's in these times that we walk without direction, frozen, numb...

It's in these times that our mind reaches such levels of intensity, that we suddenly realize that this visceral corrosive feeling which is inhabiting our rotten soul may be healed with a spark of strength, courage and, above everything else, a subtle but growing flame of belief that our energies can be chanelled into matter, that the deepest inner will can melt the painful ice that world has become.

Light this candle for he, light a candle for me, then leave.... forget... come back... light a candle for she, light a candle for us.... forget... come back... and the life cycle perpetuates....


José Ramos
Photo taken in the Sanctuary of Fátima in Portugal - this is one of the most important places of the sanctuary. This is where people burn their candles in honour of their dearest ones who need help.

Note: I've resubmited this photo after some editing. I wasn't happy with this photo's post processing, as it was excessively colourful and sharpened, not conveying the mood I wanted.

<such>A minha terrinha! *voz assim muito santa e da serra*

Uma fotografia diferente do usual. Por acaso nunca me deu para fotografar aquela zona, que transmite um calor e um ambiente muito intenso. Mas já não é preciso, aqui está um registo muito bom. :} *
