Detail from The Baptism

Detail from The Baptism

When Trinity Church was consecrated in 1877, there was only one stained glass window in place, The Baptism, in the chancel, designed by Clayton & Bell of London.  The rest was all clear glass.  By the end of 1878, there would be seven windows in the chancel marking a life: The Nativity, Jesus in the Temple with the Doctors, The Baptism, The Preacher, The Last Supper, The Resurrection, and The Commission to the Apostles.

I’ve not photographed the chancel very much.  But with the seasons changing and the light falling just a little differently, I’ve been focusing my camera on those windows again. Not focusing so much on trying to capture the whole window, but especially zooming in on the face.

I’m curious what else the autumn light will reveal.  You know I will be sure to share.  😉  Meanwhile, if you’re in the area you can check it out for yourself.  Learn more via the church website –http://trinitychurchboston.org/  – and here’s specific information about art & architecture tours http://trinitychurchboston.org/art-history

Well, not really.  A friend hung a large poster print of a photograph I took of 4 maidens in Edwin Abbey’s mural depicting scenes from the search for the Holy Grail.  As I photographed the poster and how it appeared in his home, I began to notice the reflections in the picture frame.

The layering of images, especially in black and white, appeared ghostly to me.

The effect was heightened by some rather moody music playing in the background at a local music festival.

In any case, I hope my friend enjoys his poster.

That poster print and other items are available here.
