The Old Stock Exchange Building......



Lighting the main stair-case in the Old Stock Exchange Building
is this magnificent six panel Morris and Co Federation Window
depicting Australia as part of the British Empire.
It was installed into this location in 1902
when the building was the meeting place for the State's
financial movers and shakers.
..........................................

I have often heard people be-wailing the fact that it was
installed into a south facing wall
I, however - love the soft lighting from the chandelier
which highlights the colours just perfectly.

Fantastic windows with beautiful colours. Well done on capturing it as I imagine it's not straightforward to capture stained glass windows well.

The colours are magnificent! Love how the dedication to the Stock Exchange is part of the design.

Have a pleasant evening!

The red, blue and green colours in the panels are beautiful Dianne, and you're the soft lighting is perfect for them.

What a wonderful window, Dianne. I agree, soft lighting is just right. Bright light might have been too harsh.
