Photo Hunt - Glass

The subject for this week's entry for Photo Hunt is glass. For once I don't have to stretch the theme! So here goes...


Waterford Crystal bottle

Stained glass window, St Andrew's Greensted (the old wooden church that was the subject of a photo hunt entry a little while ago)

Waterford, very posh. Empty I see, so you won't be getting poisoned by the lead leaching out into the plonk.
I never thought of a stained glass window. Good entries for this week. Have a great weekend Jams.

Stained glass windows are a triumph of the spirit. Photo Hunters is a saviour of the blogger.

Wow Jams... I'm impressed with the church's stained glasses. It is surely the work of a great artist. The colors and light shining through is just perfect. Great posting this week.

Sometimes there are many ideas under our very noses. I would never have thought of a bottle, yet I have many! I did a window too! LOL!

SnoopyTheGoon said...

I didn't find a way to stick a cat into it, so was hoping you would ;-)

Lovely shots anyway.

Have a great weekend.

Thanks everyone!

Marvelous shots, Jams - especially the stained glass window. You did a great job on this one.

I thought about posting a photo of Notre Dame´s Rose Window first, but the shots were not "good enough"... that´s why I posted my (lost) marbles. *g*

Love your glass pics esp the crystal bottle. But the stained glass holds more meaning to me.

Very nice photos both! :)

Not a great fan of Waterford Glass. I like cruder vessels. I love the stained glass. Have a good week.

Liz Hinds said...

You are such a brilliant photographer, jams! Lovely shots as ever.

Waterford Chrystal, of course, you're Irish! I remember buying Waterford Chrystal when we were visiting Ireland! But I don't have it anymore ...

Stained glass just happens to be a favorite of mine. Such a lovely window...so awe inspiring. And the Waterford Crystal? Ummmmmmmm, it's empty!!!! LOL [but beautiful!]

My 'glass' is shared, I sure hope you can find time to drop by for a visit if you haven't already.

Happy Saturday to you, and happy hunting!!!

Both beautiful!

SabineM said...

Lovely shots! Funny I thought of stained glass from a church. But living in California, that is not readily available. I probably would have more luck finding gold!

That is a very beautiful jar and lovely stained glass window. I also have a stained glass for my photo hunt post. Please come and visit....

I think the colors in the stained glass window are beautiful, and they really glow next to the dark background.

Excellent!

Lovely choices for this week's theme. You can't beat Waterford Crystal, but I may be a bit biased here, as some of my ancestry hails from Waterford. The stained glass window is beautiful, too. Have a great weekend!

LibertyBelle said...

2 fabulous photos!
Great choices!
happy weekend

eastcoastlife said...

Wow! That's a lovely crystal bottle! I would love to have stained glass windows but they are very costly in Singapore. :)

Somehow lost my last comment.

Waterford crystal is the best, but we've got rid of our decanters as the result of a compulsion to empty them as fast as they are filled!

Love the rich colours of the stained glass.

jams o donnell said...

Thanks everyone!

Frances said...

Beautiful pictures, definitely a great choice for this theme! Love the stained glass.

The Waterford crystal is just to die for! Both of those photos are gorgeous (I personally prefer the stained glass of a Siamese though...)

sammawow said...

I love that Waterford Crystal bottle and the stained glass window is beautiful! I almost did stained glass too but couldn't locate my picture!

Andree said...

I haven't seen Waterford for a long long time. This is a beautiful piece. Is the company still in business?

the stained glass is gorgeous; very meaningful to me
