This window deserves a closer look!

I absolutely love stained glass windows.

Here's a beautiful example from Lyle Kirk, Union Street, Greenock, formerly known as Ardgowan Parish Church - I've written about its architecture previously.

The fine details are just spectacular.  Look at the patterns in the robes - looks like lace.

Look how the leading is slightly dipped (second panel) to make sure the whole face is in the picture.
There is one little quirk in Ardgowan Church's stained glass window!

Is this chap (fourth panel) wearing a bowler hat?
Come on over and see more churches from around the world at InSPIREd Sunday.


  1. Thank you very much for your visit and left a comment.
    Temples are my huge weakness. Interest in always gives me pause.
    Photos of stained glass are excellent.
    I admire and am caught up.
