Photo Legend #28 - Details

I always found stained glass windows fascinating. They are primarily found in churches and cathedrals, which I also find fascinating and for which I pay high respect and attention. Paying attention can be rewarding as they always contain surprising details. You can look at one example of a photographed stained glass window published on my Unsplash profile.

During a recent visit to a small church in the neighbourhood where we stayed in Niagara-falls-on-the-lake, I stumbled upon a simple stained glass window in the church entrance. I stopped and paid attention to the depicted scene of three persons, two men and a woman. My religious culture is close to nothing, so Iโ€™m not sure what this scene was referring to or if there is a special meaning to it. Yet, I love those scenes as they often convey story parts or a mood. I was fascinated by the expression on their faces showing sadness or admiration; Iโ€™m not sure. Using my iPhone 13 Pro, I tried to get closer and snapped a few pictures using the telephoto lens and then I tried doing some macro photography shots to capture specific details.

It was with some apprehension that I glanced at my photos when I came back home. However, it didnโ€™t take too long to select the best shots, then process them using Pixelmator Pro and create the following montage using Appleโ€™s Keynote to illustrate the source of the details I wanted to make stand out. Iโ€™m pretty happy with the results.
