Weekly Photo Challenge – Intricate

A Kaleidoscope of Colours….

INTRICATE….Craftsmanship

I am not religious but cannot help to be moved by the architecture and the drama that was created by Stonemasons centuries ago in creating places of worship.  But if I had to isolate one feature in all these buildings that I admire most it would be the Stained glass (or Painted) Windows.

My contribution to this Weeks Photo Challenge :- https://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_photo_challenge/intricate/

An intricate blend of stone carving, glass cutting and colouring and lead work to contain and separate the features.  The fact that so many remain after all these centuries is a marvel in its own right.

  1. I have just reposted this blog as I didn’t like the way ‘Reader’ displayed the original. So if you are one of the 21 who liked it first time round could you re-like again Thanks.

  2. This is precisely the reason why I like visiting churches. To enjoy the filtering sunlight through the stained glass. Awesome capture.
