Red and Green should never be seen ....



This is the ceiling of Holy Trinity Church, Hull. At one time all the church would have been as brightly coloured and painted. It was the Reformation and the puritans who had no colour sense that lead to plain  interiors. How the stain glass survived the siege of Hull and the bombs of Hitler I don't know.

  1. Wonderful post for Theme Day. I've never seen a ceiling like this one--it's splendid. My Theme Day post at Portland Oregon Daily Photo will be up at 5 a.m., Pacific Daylight Time, on August 1. Today's is a pretty nice tease for it, though.

  2. That's the most colorful church ceiling I have ever seen. A miracle and a blessing that the stained glass windows survived. I'm glad. They're gorgeous!
