photoblog image This is for Tiff

This is for Tiff

We were on route to Canons Ashby and stopped to look at the Chusch of St Martin in Litchborough. Insde we saw this 14th century glass and I immediately thought of Tiffo who does not share my liking of Victorian stained glass but likes the medieval stuff. So these rather beautiful windows are for you Chris. I hope you like them

They look like placeholders for when they find a cove who knows how to do good stained glass, Bill.
Bill Phillips: LOL! don't tell Chris that

Too bad I am not there to see all the excitement in his eyes when this picture is opening up on his laptop....
I love the medieval stuff too, with knights and castles and all those things related.
Bill Phillips: An excited tiffo....not a pretty sight

Well I am obliged to you for this. I agree these examples are delicate & agreeable: what I cannot abide this that in your face bright colour stuff
Bill Phillips: I love it! but then I have a bias towards things Victorian tongue

This a refinedly composed picture - I love medieval glass windows more than Victorian ones- this one is an interesting unusual example with the letters that might have a special meaning (I had to google).
Bill Phillips: It is unusual and I have no idea what the significance of the letters is
great one, with the background in photo too
Bill Phillips: Thank you very much Chantal
Bright color?? Is he blind? It is as colourful as a movie from 1920
Bill Phillips: That's the point Marion. This is medieval glass and not the highly coloured stuff that the Victorians put in so many churches. I like the victorian stuff but Tiffo likes this

I tend to be more in line with Tiffo Bill, the Victorians did have a taste for the sickly and artificial.
Bill Phillips: They were big on the sentimental and idealised, but I am a sucker for it!

I echo Chris's words to the letter - no more "in your face bright colour stuff"! Didn't they do any B&W stained glass windows?
Bill Phillips: There is bound to be one somewhere Mike grin

Can you tell me why when shutterchance is English it insists on telling you, you have spelt a word wrong if it's not the American version. I find myself spelling colour as color just to keep it happy.
Bill Phillips: Like so many things these days the only spellcheck option is American English, and the Americans can't spell grin You can add the spelling to the dictionary by right clicking over the word and adding it
I've got mixed feelings about the legacy of The Victorians ... Windows like these are low low on my list of priorities.
Bill Phillips: I am a fan of Victorian by and large. Some of their "restoration" did more harm than good though

You made a good picture of your finding.
You say mid-evil stuff is for Chris? I will buy that.
Bill Phillips: I see you have got Chris worked out

Very arty, Bill; such delicate light. I never knew of Sir Tiff's dislike for the stained glass.
Bill Phillips: He is not fond of Victorian stained glass, I on the other hand love it!
I don't think I've ever seen such restrained glass! Fine capture!
Bill Phillips: Restrained describes it well
They really are very attractive windows in their own way Bill, nice presentation.
Bill Phillips: They were a very nice find Brian
