Stained glass

Not as impressive as the cathedral but spotted this window when out today


  1. If you keep your eyes open there is quite a lot of stained glass about. I photographed the glass in a local ish church two days back, I was lucky the lady that cleans was there and let me in.

  2. I love windows like this from the inside, the coloured light that they shed.

  3. Hate to put a damper on your heading but it's not real stained glass, it's decorated glass. Coloured film stuck onto the glass and the "leading" is self adhesive lead tape.

    How can I tell? My dad is a real stained glass artist, with a workshop making the real thing. If you look closely the joints are not actually soldered!

    Still, it's a nice design and adds character to the house. Better than that 'orrible textured glass you see nowadays. Dad says it's a standard "Kendal" design.

    1. That's really interesting, thanks for that, I should have looked a bit closer!

  4. So it's a sort of privacy thing? How clever - and of your Dad!

  5. Hello, Winchester Daily Photos.

      Even more severe in winter, but.
      Your work is embraced in your gentleness.

      Thank you for the warmth of your heart.

      The prayer for all peace.
    Have a good weekend. From Japan ruma ❃
