Window

I was away all day without camera, except the one on my cell phone. We had diner in a restaurant in Tienray, a small village of pilgrimage in Limburg, also known as 'Small Lourdes'. The restaurant is located in the former chapel of the convent St. Joseph, built in 1909. An imposant building that belonged to the Missiezusters Kostbaar Bloed (Mission Sisters Precious Blood), but since 2007 turned into a hotel-restaurant. The restaurant still has the original stained-glass windows of the chapel; beautiful colours, but unfortunately too many colours combined for challenge.

However, then I noted this window in the men's toilet, with yellow and blue glass, subtle but complementary. I wasn't sure how well the colours of the glass would come out of the cell phone, but I am quite pleased with the result.
