Whimsical Windows - Memorial Day in Ansonia

For the architectural meme Whimsical Windows/Delirious Doors, there is today instead of whimsy a bit of reflection - the lovely Patti captured he Ansonia (CT) city hall yesterday, prior to our annual Memorial Day Parade.

Shadow Shot Sunday - Spring sun



It is a glorious Spring day in the Ansonia Uplands, if quite chilly (54°F / 13°C) for 23 May, with lots of sun. 

As we are awaiting for someone to haul away our old queen size bed (mattress, headboard, etc.), I found mundane subjects for Shadow Shot Sunday 2 as I wheeled around the driveway.

It will be sunny and 75°F tomorrow...a better representation of the season!

Whimsical Windows - Sanctuary Stained Glass







For this week's meme Whimsical Windows/Delirious Doors, I look again to our house of worship, the First Congregational Church of Derby (CT). In an early 20th Century room addition to the original 1842 sanctuary, there are cool stained glass windows that are odd in this style of church as the original Puritans strove to never adorn their plain churches, which may have been the style in the 1700s - but not in 1901. A style with spiritual overtones...
