LeGrande Ward: Chapel Interior & Stained Glass

 This otherwise-modern chapel still saved the original stained glass from the LeGrande Ward. I was very happy to see that.

 I must be very hard to please, though, because I quickly realized something disappointing--this window has some very uneven lighting!

The lights are clearly visible along the sides and the top. This stained glass isn't a thickly colored as other examples; the glass is more opaque, so instead of even lighting, we have bright lights in the sides and top (which tend to wash out the colors).

Meanwhile, the bottom portions are barely lit at all; none of the colors really glow.

I know that I'm picky when it comes to the use of stained glass, but I just want it to be appreciated fully. A few simple lighting changes could really make this window shine. This is one of the drawbacks of electric lighting.

In any case, I'll take what I can. Thank heavens these windows were saved.
