Just another quiet day at St. M's
It is a part of the lovely West window at St.Mary's. Difficult to get at and for a new photographer even more so.
On the same day, I tried for a close-up of one of the scenes depicted on the left, with only marginally more success.
What I want to do, is to try to add it to this blog. Here goes.
No, No good. It will not let me upload the one I want, I know it's there in the picture collection, but for some reason I can't access it. Oh well, another time.
This morning cleaning the brass, it being weary Wednesday, I was approached by a couple who wanted to know why our handy leaflet about the main features in the church, said that the above mentioned window was mediaeval, when clearly it is Victorian.
I had great difficulty convincing them that the leaflet refers to the stone setting only, and the glass is indeed Victorian (and extremely beautiful). Finally, they accepted that it was not a misrepresentation of the facts, and thanked me for the information.
Sometimes i answer visitors' questions with my fingers crossed, but on this occasion I was not guessing!
