Monday Window – Chauvigny

This ‘secular’ stained glass window clearly isn’t contemporary with the medieval church in Chauvigny where it can be found – but that doesn’t make it a bad thing.

Tuesday Photo Challenge: Glow

The interiors of many old churches can be rather cold and austere, with great slabs of now-bare stonework. Not so the medieval church in the town of Chauvigny, especially with the warming glow of the sun shining through stained glass windows.

Monochrome helps to create a sense of brooding menace in this image of a medieval building in the French town of Chauvigny.

Photography 101: Warmth

Although I’m as secular as they come, I do appreciate the architecture of churches and cathedrals.

Typically, though, the interiors of these buildings  are largely of grey stone and emanate anything but warmth. However, this church, in the medieval town of Chauvigny, is an exception, especially when, as in this image, natural sunlight streams through the high windows above the altar.

Somehow the bird adds to the sense of menace created by the looming stonework.
