Sunday - the day we normally set aside

to deal with religion.

I took this picture of a stained glass window from inside a lovely old cathedral in Portland, Oregon. It's beautiful, isn't it? Warm and evocative, the faces are delicately painted on and the message is quite clear.

Here's a picture of another stained glass window, this time taken from outside the cathedral.

Still lovely in an abstract sort of way but what are these bobbleheads up to? Obviously a scene like this could have any number of plausible interpretations.

So it seems as if the whole experience depends on whether you see it from the inside or the outside.

I sense some kind of metaphor in here somewhere...
