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 forgot to put the battery back in my camera today, so didn’t get any photos form the shul today on my annual pilgrimage to one or another religious institution around town.

I am thankful that I can share my photos with people I don’t even know as well as those I do, every day. Happy Thanksgiving, or just have a beautiful day.
