City Daily Photo Theme Day - Aging

Old Coventry Cathedral Ruins
Stained Glass


Today is City Daily Photo Theme Day and the topic for today is 'Aging'.

I decided to share something that has aged well.
These are pieces of stained glass that date back to 
15th Century. Much of Coventry Cathedral was destroyed in
World War II, but these pieces of glass survived and are on 
view in the Cathedral ruins.

Hope you had a nice weekend.
See you on Tuesday :).
