In between editing Summer School photos I popped out this afternoon to take some photos at Broxted Church. I love photographing churches and finding interesting details in their architecture. However, perhaps the thing I love most about churches is the way the light creates fascinating effects as it falls through the stained glass windows and onto the interior. St. Mary's at Broxted is notable for two of its stained glass windows - the ‘Hostage’ and ‘Freedom’ windows, which commemorate the ordeal suffered by local man John McCarthy and his fellow hostages in Beirut back in the 1980s. The ‘Freedom’ window in particular is glorious, with its cool shades of blue.
