Chapel in the Forest

This is the Ida Cason Callaway Memorial Chapel in Callaway Gardens near Pine Mountain, Georgia.

Their website describes it thus:

Nestled in a serene forest surrounding Falls Creek Lake, the Ida Cason Callaway Memorial Chapel was carefully planned by Cason Callaway himself as a tribute to his mother. Inspired by 16th-century Gothic chapels, it is highlighted by a variety of materials native to the region, including fieldstone quartz. Beautifully crafted stained glass windows depict Georgia pines, softwoods, and hardwoods, coming to life in vibrant colors as the four seasons progress.

Monday Window – July 6, 2020

A simple window

Window fans have shared many magnificent, intricate, beautiful, windows. Windows to be looked at, looked into, looked out of, and windows for all kinds of purposes, large ones, small ones, tall one, narrow ones, old ones, new ones. The variety is endless. My contributions also have been of a wide range.

A few days ago I glanced at the side of a pavilion in a nearby park. I had photographed around there many times. That day the small windows seemed to be saying, “hey, what about us?”

These windows stand out by their simplicity. Just four glass blocks set into the wall. Not fancy, just a way to let a little light into the structure.
