Window Views - 06-17-09: Hope


Mary T is keeping us busy with photo memes. Here's a new one called Window Views.










This is the Hope Presbyterian church in our neighborhood. I don't know what kind of church it was originally; it's certainly a sturdy old building. It looks like it's hundreds of years old, but Portland has only been a city for 150 years or so. Looks like I have more homework to do.

Lots of stained glass windows...


...but rather subdued.


This one has an opaque covering over it.


Truly, a belfry.

I particularly like pictures of churches and their windows - and this is an interesting building. Stained glass windows of course are deasigned to be seen from inside the church with the light behind them - so I bet they are not subdued viewed that way. I would love to see inside pics too. Thanks.

What an interesting design. My town doesn't have old buildings like that. Thanks for sharing.
