  1. >Gorgeous and yes shame on you. I wouldn’t have admitted it, so points for that.

  2. >It is a gorgeous photo and window as well.

  3. >To your enduring credit, you bring us a beautiful capture of it here!

  4. >A beautiful window in a great capture!

  5. >PS. Your caption mislead me; I thought that you were going to reveal your own birtday (in a clever way, of course). When is it, by the way?!

  6. >Here I am commenting when I said I’d take a break, but this one I cannot resist! Chagall is a genius! When in Chicago I always visit the Art Institute because of the Chagall windows there, and I try to visit at different times of day because then the light plays differently on the glass. Now I just have to return to your blog to get my Chagall “fix.” Wonderful photo! Are there more than just this one? If so, a fervent request…post them all!!
