251: Stained glass
In April I was invited to attend a birthday party. It was the eightieth birthday of the mother of a colleague, and the party was held -together with the family and friends – in a country house in Pitangui, a town located in the mountainous regions at about 125 m south of Belo Horizonte. I was asked to take pictures during the two-day birthday party. On the second day, there was a short tour through the historic town, which was founded little more than three hundred years ago. One of the highlights was the visit of the church, which was frequented by the mother in the past, when my eyes caught the colorful stained-glass windows in the church. The partly opened windows allowed sunlight to illuminate the church.
