Here is a stained glass window in The Old Church in downtown Portland, OR. This building is no longer used to hold religious serves but is still very much in demand for musical concerts, weddings, receptions, etc. It is a wood structure with very ornate and intricate carvings on the outside and beautiful furnishings within. The old pipe organ has been refurbished and is played regularly in recitals and concerts.

There are two stained glass windows in the building. This photo shows just a small portion of the larger one. It is interesting to note that there is nothing religious represented in the window. The peace dove and lillies are the dominant features.

Many circles in this picture. This is a scanned 35mm negative shot about ten years ago. It was shot midday with the chapel lights turned off. It is difficult to get a straight-on shot of the window so there is perspective distortion.

I am surprised there are no religious symbols in the windows. The lighting is right on. Like you hving taken a number of stained glass windows from below I always wish there was some way to get a perspective right on. However, keep in mind this is always the perspective that a normal viewer will see the window.

Aloha and thanks for sharing these wonderful circles.
