“People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out,  but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within.”

– Elizabeth Kubler-Ross


  1. Such lovely windows – I would love to see them with the light reflected through them, maybe another time! I love the arch shape of the windows themselves too – I’v always had a thing about arched windows.

    I know, I know. The doors were locked. We were driving around town on our weekend up in Maine and I just had to stop and take some pics for this theme! maybe I should reference that other PF we did on religion – I had some nice stained glass in that post…

  3. The windows look so old…Beautiful though!

    Very old – I forget the date on the church… I was unable to get inside and the time of day I was there was late afternoon.

  4. Beautiful stained glass windows Love it

    Thank you! It’s so tough to take good pics of stained glass I think. Often, the pics just don’t capture what you see with your own eyes. besides issues with subtle lighting, sunshine, angle, etc.

  5. I love the detail in old stained glass windows. The craftsmanship is amazing.

    And these have two distinct styles; I wish I knew more…

  6. I just checked my photo gallery – I DID take a shot of the church cornerstone – 1827. I snapped another sign for the Window Restoration Project but I wasnt’ close enough for any additional details 😦

  7. What a neat old church! Those windows are beautiful and I am sure they are a sight from the inside too. There is so much detail in each one of them, just gorgeous!

    This PF activity is inspiring yes? If I hadn’t had this theme upcoming, I would have only thought: “ooo! pretty church.” and now, after all these comments, I am trying to figure out when I can get back up to Maine and get inside the church next time… Where will this all lead?

  8. Wow – what great photos and the perfect quote to go with! Very nice pairing, C!

    Thanks Teeni!

  9. Unusually looking stained glass. Much different in style than the ones on Author’s blog which have a more religious tone.

    I know – I wish I knew the story between the different kinds, I hope to explore again when the church is open.

  10. I love that quote and the pics!

    Thanks Kaylee!

  11. 1827? Wow. That’s amazing. The windows are so lovely, still, maybe more so with the age they carry. Great entry!

  13. I was way behind on your wonderful posts..I enjoyed all of them!
    These are great,and I love the old vehicle photo!
    Interesting to read about your first job…mine was as a set up girl in a very “fancy” restaurant…like you I learned about all kinds of people. 🙂

    Thanks for sharing your world C!

    Thank YOU GypsyHeart! and be safe this hurricane-nutty season. (We’re getting Hanna today in Mass – here’s hoping Ike diminishes…)

  14. I love the details of window picture 6, it would be nice to see it lit at night.

  15. Lovely, lovely. I really enjoy old religious buildings with all that energy and beauty. Y’all in the east have much older buildings than we do out west; I’m jealous. And then there’s Europe…
    Can you get in sometime to see them from the inside, too?

  16. I got the whole window up on my photo friday if you what to see it
