Immaculate Conception Church Stained Glass Windows (Botkins Ohio)

Reflection of stained glass windowds on tiled floor and side of pews.I thought I was very fortunate to capture this reflection of the light coming through the stained glass windows onto the floor and pews. I just love it when am able to get an artistic shot.

The stained glass windows in this church are the first modern ones that I have seen. I myself like the detail you find in the multiple glazing's of the more traditional windows. However, they do fit the art and decor of the church. They are very simplistic and mosaic in design.

All the Windows were of saints as shown in the below three collages or Christian symbols as you can see on the back wall on both sides of the full portrait of Mary in the last picture.

You can left click on any picture to get a much larger view.



Pictured below are Saint Bernadette and Our Lady of Guadalupe.

Next we have La Salette the 1846 Mary apparition in France. This may be the two children to whom she gave her message and Our Lady of Fatima.

I felt like I didn't do the stained glass windows justice in my original post. So I reposted them today.

I LOVE that you were able to catch that reflection of the stained glass windows on the floor. That is a beautiful photograph! When I went to Italy one of my favorite things was to look at the windows and paintings of all the churches. It is definitely a unique art.
