Friday "My Town" Shootout--Doors and Windows!

This week's Friday Shootout theme was chosen by Kerri from Canada--Doors and Windows! Don't forget to click on the blog to see some fantastic photos!

Since Dublin is a relatively "new" town (incorporated in 1982), we don't have many old things!

At a loss for subjects, I headed over to a local Lutheran church to take some pictures of their beautiful stained glass windows. Notice the windows have a separate pane on the outside... gotta love living in earthquake country!

These are behind the altar, and tell the story of the Parable of the Sower. First up is the sower planting his seeds...

...and the other side is the wonderful harvest. Sorry about the reflections!

Next to the side entrance, there are these wonderful matching angels...

These lend a nice touch to Sunday morning worship... this was the church I went to growing up and was confirmed there a long time ago. :)


  1. Very relaxing. I enjoyed the confirmation church window the most.

  2. stained glass is always special. inside the space the light is disfussed and the colors change the color of the light in the space, softens it. good photos

  3. I like the story. Also, I did not know that Dublin was a fairly new town. See, I learn something new everyday from my fellow bloggers. I really like the stained glass. Your last photo of the angel is very good.

    Have a great weekend.

  4. I also learned something new, Dublin is new also! great shoot out! love stained glass.

  5. Beautiful! I love the story the windows tell.
