The Christmas Festival is approaching at an alarming speed and I am way, way behind with my list of ‘things to do’ before 25 December.
The images in today’s post are all of Stained Glass that I have collected this year – see the captions for details of their origins.
One thing that the Christmas season brings is a welcome sparkle of colour to liven the bleak colourless landscape of winter. One area of colour that I take particular interest in is Stained Glass. Some, but not all of this, has religious significance. And unsurprisingly quite a number of Christmas cards that we give/receive feature Nativity related scenes.
Primarily though, the purpose of this last Post before Christmas is two-fold:
Firstly, I send you all my Best Wishes for the Christmas Festival. In saying that I realize that our blogging community is multi-cultural and multi-faith and for many of you reading this the Christian meaning of Christmas is not something that is a part of your lives. But for all of us (hopefully), whatever our faith, we have days off to be with our families and friends and in the modern terminology to ‘Chill’.
Secondly, a sincere ‘Thank You’ to all those who have visited this blog, ‘Liked’ a Post, posted a comment, signed up to be a follower, or publicised it on Twitter, Facebook or elsewhere. Thank you all so much. Your support and interest is a huge encouragement and much appreciated by me. In turn I have enjoyed greatly following many of you who are regular visitors to this blog.
The Gallery of new work that lands on my desktop each day is a source of continued inspiration to my own work. We all strive to develop as photographers and our creativity is constantly refuelled by seeing other photographers quality work. Keep Posting and I will keep viewing and commenting on your work as time allows. During the last few weeks I haven’t had the time to do that as much as I would like – a situation I hope to remedy shortly.
Enjoy the holiday break, I will be back for a post sometime towards the end of Christmas week.
