EllenS you are CORRECT!

The stain glass in located in the Church of the Holy Spirit Heidelberg, Germany.
A beautiful place to visit at Christmas time.

It is known as the "Physics" window - Johannes Schreiter, the artist, added these 4 elements layered in red highlights:

1. The date the atom bomb was dropped on Hiroshima is inserted (August 6, 1945)

2. The equation developed by the German scientist (Alfred Einstein) that made the atom bomb possible.

And two scripture verses:
3. Peter 3:10 "the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up"

4. Isaiah 54:10 "Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken"

The artist had been commissioned to replace all the windows that had been blown out by allied bombing, but the church leadership said it was too radical and re-competed the task.

Where to now?

Ellen,

You are up you guessed the city where the stain glass resides.
The picture is of the Church of the Holy Spirit Heidelberg, Germany where the window is installed.

I took at Christmas time when we were on Christmas Market River Cruise a few years ago.

So it is your turn to post a picture

Blue Buildings... I kept asking myself Blue Buildings I know I have seen them...
But when you zoom in on the uniforms were the clue!
Wow that is a longgggggggggggg way from Lake Norman grin

The DMZ crossing in Korea?

As reported on the news not soooo long ago, even thought it seems like a lifetime.
I guess simpler put - Pre-COVID.

Since we have BC (BCE) AD (CE) Do you think we may establish PC - Pre-COVID
Me I am looking forward to AC - After COVID

Wow, I thought that one would last a bit longer. Yes it was a mighy long airplane ride. We took our teenaged adopted son back to see Korea and we loved it. Have the say the DMZ was a bit scary. Lots of rules.

Pictures of the North Koreans looking at us looking at them. Me inside the blue buildings with the very intense military, the bridge of no return, and no trip is complete without looking for mine signs.

So cool that you would make that journey!
I think I would be fairly uncomfortable at the DMZ.
I cannot believe the border guard allowed you pose with him.

Thanks for sharing the extra photos and the background stories.

Many travelers have seen this shot... but did they notice?
Country, City, Place on this one please.

I would have never guessed that you were a Unicorn Kinda Guy...

You are correct - England - London - Buckingham Palace - Front Gates

Where to next?

I want to say it is a shot of the flags that have controlled St Croix.
Definitely in the USVI

But it is missing one... The Knights of Malta were in controlled for a short period of time.

I have never been to St Croix for a visit. Landed there frequently in USCG Helo in the 70s.
My wife has been a couple times and has almost the exact same photo.

It is the old Rhum factory... I think
