Below St Denis' organ gallery, where the baptismal font is located and images and religious publications are sold, two windows are illuminating the small anteroom: this is one of them. They don't depict a holy scene, they are just showing acanthus patterns, and they are very beautiful.

Somehow, the mind wants to fill in imagined colors . . strange how easily conditioned we are and, yet, each of us would make different color choices and not know why.

@Ronnie 2¢: I found it that decorative that I wondered if it would look good at home!

Very extraordinary stained glass, like it very much! Well captured, perfect light.

@Ted: Thanks, Ted! f5.6, ISO 800, some 60mm, ca. 1/100 sec exposure, that's all.

Far from simple given the beauty in their design. I love the warm lighting you captured on the left.

@Steven: Thanks, Steven! I liked it a lot, too!

I agree with Ronnie above - get me some markers!
(I was thinking childish things when reading the beginning of your post...just didn't want to be the first to say it)

@Christine Walsh: Yes, I've already started a collection of my best 'organ' jokes. :-D
