Weekly Photo Challenge: Illumination

2012_07090076 2012_07090077 2012_07090078

This week’s photo challenge from the Daily Post is illumination.  When I sat and thought about this word and what is meant to me I had images of the amazing illuminated manuscripts of ancient documents but a photograph of something like that was out of the question – well this week anyway.  However, this thinking led me along a religious route and reminded me of the amazing stained glass windows at La Sagrada Familia in Barcelona I saw last July.  The windows are more blue or orange/green depending on whether they are facing the sea or the mountains.

    Nice Helen, a reminder of our visit a few years ago. What a magnificent place this is isn’t it 🙂

    The colours reminded me of the ‘stained glass windows’ we used to make with the children at school, with tissue paper and PVA glue on plastic, which you peel off when dry… Very messy, but great results 🙂
