Stained Glass

This close up of a stained glass window was taken in Stellenbosch, South Africa.  The Calvinist church there, with its pure white walls and reasonably modern interior, was a very interesting place to photograph.  Not because of the religious aspect, but more because of the light and colour let in by these unique windows.

It took forty years for the church to complete its set of stained glass windows, all funded from local donations. Forty years. That’s as long as I’ve been on the planet.

The windows themselves were handcrafted in France and then shipped thousands of miles to their final destination.

    1. Thank you, just you wait until you see what’s coming up. As you know I’ll take pictures of anything, from the moment I step out of the door, all the way around the world and back.
