More Stained Glass

A few more pics from the Smith Museum of Stained Glass at Navy Pier in Chicago. In case you're wondering how I was able to remember what each one was called and the period it was created, it's a writer's secret called...mini notebook and pen. Carrying them with you at all times truly does come in handy. Just ask the friends who made fun of me on our D.C. trip several years back--only to literally come running to me at the National Archives, demanding my notebook and pen so they could copy down info on the Mason-Dixon line, which we had crossed a few days earlier en route to Gettysburg. Uh-huh...you can bet they've never ridiculed my penchant to carry pen and paper since. *WEG*


Landscape With Yellow Sky, c. 1915



Autumn Landscape, c.1890



The Four Seasons, c. 1907-08
(The glare in this one was from someone taking a pic behind me. Had I realized it would turn out this bad, I would have taken a second)

That autumn pic remind me of Memoirs of a Geisha (which I watched last night). Such lovely cinematography in that movie.

WOW...what gorgeous stained glass!

(I keep a notebook and pen in my truck for exactly the same reasons, but your story is funnier.)
