Weekly Photo Challenge: Masterpiece

La Sainte-Chapelle, Paris, France

Having recently returned from Paris, these stained glass windows were the first thing that popped into my head when I read the prompt for this week- masterpiece. I remember walking into this medieval Gothic chapel, a bit tired and grumpy from the heat and lack of sleep. All was forgotten the moment we walked into the upper level that housed the stained-glass. It was a jaw-dropping experience that had us (my friends and I) just standing there, marveling at the work itself as well as the inconceivable notion that it was all made – painstakingly I’m sure, – by hand in 1239.
