This photograph is taken when I take a walk the circumference of a station in the autumn of last year using the connection time of a train. This shrine existed on the way which I move in the direction of the bridge which can photograph autumnal-leaves scenery well, and walks. It is a local small shrine. A figure was not found in the precincts of a temple. I do not remember the name of this shrine. Since there was idling time, when I went into the precincts of a shrine. There was small Hon-dō(Main hall) in front. And, the stone lantern and the wooden lamp poles were placed on the both sides of an approach with the fixed interval. As the whole, it is a symmetrical style of building. The leaf of the trees in Hon-dō's back hand was dyed autumnal tints, and fallen leaves had spread in the precincts of a shrine so that deepening of autumn might be shown. It invited lonesomeness strangely for me. When it thinks, all over the country, anywhere is a shrine, and
the construction composition of a shrine is almost the same. Torii is in the entrance of a shrine, a lantern is placed on an approach and Hondo has in the center. Since I am not a religion specialist, I do not know why the shrine exists in Japan about 80,000. A shrine is a religious service institution of Shintoism of religion of Japan, and it is an organization which performs religious service courtesy and faith. A shrine is a place which prays for actual things, such as charm against misfortunes and a good harvest, and the meaning differs from the temple which prays for things in which man is not seen. While people are unconscious, they go by everyday life to a shrine, and pray to God in it. This is the world of human's deep psyche separated from science.

Très joli petit sanctuaire bien entouré par une belle végétation. J'aime beaucoup les lampadaires qui ressemblent à des cabanes d'oiseaux. Jolies couleurs automnales et beau tapis de feuilles en avant-plan.
Tous mes compliments,

A cute shrine with simple architectural details well set off in such tranquil setting and there's some wonderful colours in the backdrop with lovely touch of vivid colours. The pov and symmetry really do bring out the best of the capture and fantastic to view with great depth and perspective. I find this superb, the tones and clarity are spot on and seamless done. Congrats

A very interesting note and picture! A very attractive symmetry here with these red vertical lines of all the poles. The colours of the background trees are also very good with all these different shades of green an yellow.

Beautifully placed the shrine edifice between the orange poles with the lanterns, than on just along both sides older lanterns.Leaves on the ground "carpet" in a fine contrast to the green trees and the surrounding's.
Lovely taken shot.

An excellent low POV for this beautiful picture of the shrine.
The autumn colours of the trees are a splendid background while the fallen leaves make the foreground more attractive.
Above all, I think that the vivid red wooden lamp poles are an important visual aspect of this picture making us especially attracted to this image.
I think that the shrines in Japan are also mostly located in beautiful natural surroundings.
Best regards, Paul
