I also happen to like a nice piece of stained glass. Now these are perhaps not the best examples, but for a simple country kirk I think they shine.
I was initially wandering around outside snapping away, and I noticed the door open. So I did what any nosy eejit with a camera would do and went inside. There was a woman 'doing the flowers' and I think I shortened her life considerably when I said ' Hello, mind if I take some photos?' Now I can understand her anxiety when a guy with a camera appears on a Saturday afternoon, but to be honest, to describe her reaction as frosty would be an understatement. I tried to explain that I was simply a lover of churches and an amateur photographer but it really didn't cut any ice with her. I snapped away as quickly as I could and left, but couldn't help thinking, no wonder your feckin' churches are empty!
