Out of place

Russian orthodox church Nice

Russian Orthodox Church in Nice, France

Out of place, not blending in with the environment.
Symbol of a culture that is not the local one, a religion that comes from elsewhere.
Culture, nurtured by values, felt through behaviour, seen in the ways people and things look.
Religious buildings, churches, temples or mosques, not choosing to copy or exaggerate local cultural traditions, but to cherish the contrast, to show the individuality of the religion.
Who can tell where you are, by looking at the way people dress, by what means of transport are used, by the architecture of the buildings?
