I was dog walking the other day when I happened to walk past this rather nondescript church and noticed the fishing imagery on the windows. This is appropriate for Hull as is (or was) a fishing community and many lives have been lost at sea and people may have sought solace in a church such as this one, among the former terrace houses of the fishermen. Also the fish symbol is a Christian one, as Christians should be 'fishers of men'.
I came back with my camera to take pics of the fish windows, but from the outside they weren't very good, as these windows were meant to be seen from the inside, illuminated by the light of faith perhaps. The vicar's wife saw me, as it was a Sunday morning, and kindly invited me inside to take some better pictures. As usual my camera batteries conked out at the crucial moment so after much faffing I quickly took this pic, which does cut off the bottom but I didn't want to delay her too much.
Stained glass windows were originally a way of communicating ideas and stories to the illiterate medieval masses, so in that way they are 'colourful language', albeit of a visual kind. I quite like the way this subverts the obvious meaning of 'colourful language', which, is of course a usually profane one, of the sort perhaps used by the trawlermen. Although I am not religious, I always get something out of going into a church, and this occasion was no exception.
