Monday Window: The Grand Mosque, Muscat

The Grand Mosque in Muscat, the capital of the Sultanate of Oman, features many stained glass windows. In accordance with Islamic tradition, images are geometrical and abstract rather than featuring depictions of the human form.

Monday Window: Old barn at Asniers

My contribution to #MondayWindow this week is a now bricked-up little window in an old barn in the nearby village of Asniers. Originally, this would have provided light and ventilation for the livestock kept within, but in all likelihood this barn (like ours) is now only used for storage.
