Perfection for theme day...

There are few things as colourful and as engrossing as stained glass windows. Is St Louis cathedral in Versailles? I am hoping to visit Versailles during my upcoming trip. Want to take in the village as well as the palace, though.

Lovely photo. Thanks!

Jack said...

Beautiful. Of course, at Versailles you have a head start on bright colors!

Brattcat said it perfectly, as usual. This is like a quilt made of stained glass.

Thanks for the Pop Up Comment Window used here.... I went to visit your Bridge photo blog...but the Embedded Below Post Comment box won't work for me... so i have to find another alternative...

Even so, I am well pleased to see your colourful post. Brilliant!

Randy said...

I would love to have windows like these in my home. No need for window coverings!

«Louis» always enjoys stained glass windows. This is a fine contribution to the August CDP meme, Ciel.

One of «Louis'» favorite spots in France is la Sainte-Chapelle in Paris.

Beautiful and great choice for theme day. It would be hard to beat stained glass in a church in France - that's perfect for "bright colors"!

When I saw the first pic I thought you had made another quilt. It is beautiful. Colored glass is perfect for the theme. MB

Dina said...

Thanks for thinking of Sunday Bridges. I believe I just linked it successfully!

Portland is definitely worth a stop on the road.

Great minds think alike! We've both posted stained glass windows today. I love the patterns and use of color in this window.

Je ne peux pas m'empêcher de penser à tes coussins en patchwork et tes quilts!Peut-être une source d'inspiration? en tout cas, choix parfait pour le thème d'aujourd'hui!

Wow spectacular artistry in the stained glass! I've never seen stained glass with such amazing detail and pattern. Thanks for posting that -- and thank you too for mentioning that my link wasn't showing up on the CDP portal. I'll check it.

The designs have so much detail. They remind me of quilts.

tapirgal said...

These are fantastic - not only bright, but one of my favorite subjects. So often they come out poorly, but when they come out well, they are stunning. Yours certainly shine!
