Glass is an interesting subject and a great travel photo theme. It is ubiquitous wherever one travels. It can be used artistically such as in beautiful stained glass windows, or to create expensive collectibles such as Waterford Chrystal or Venetian Glass. Or for the mundane, but important uses, such as separating us from wild animals or holding my beer.

  1. Glass… I love glass… the finest stained glass (in my opinion) is in Coventry Cathedral, I could sit there all day and look at it…. I also quite like glass when it’s full of beer! Great post!
