Thanksgiving

vase of wheat in front of stained glass window

Wheat

In the entryway of the Sts. Peter and Paul Ukrainian Orthodox Church in Carnegie; not from this year, but from two years ago, before I was posting daily photos. Wheat is a very important symbol in the Ukrainian tradition and appears in the famous cross-stitch embroidery and pysanka, or easter eggs, in church windows and on liturgical vestments as well as in artwork.

I love to photograph the vibrant colors of stained glass church windows as well. One of these days I’ll have to collect my photos of stained glass into a slideshow.

I am thankful that I can share my photos with people I don’t even know as well as those I do, every day. At the end of this holiday weekend in America, I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving, or just a beautiful day.
