Artist's Description

This shot of a stained-glass window was taken in early 2007, at one of Melbourne’s oldest churches, constructed from the bluestone that marks Melbourne’s earliest architecture.

It is very different from normal stained-glass designs, in that it is not rich in the traditional blues, yellows and reds.

It drew my attention because the central image is a comparatively small depiction of the Madonna and child, surrounded by individual, triangular-embedded floral designs.

It’s also interesting to note that the sun was not behind this window when I took this shot during a wedding service. But the light-green outlines of each pattern almost seem to have a luminescent quality to them, amid the over-riding darkness of the area in my frame.

I do not crop, enhance or post-edit my images in any way. This was shot without a tripod, using a Pentax K100D fitted with my favourite lens, a Sigma 18-125mm. F5.6, 1/125 sec, ISO 200, focal length 125mm.

Featured in HISTORY, July 2011.
