Beginning, Platter and Dance

I've been on holiday - but of course the camera came too! I was in Alsace, the extreme east of France, on the border with Germany.

So many possibilities for Beginning. In the end I went for this one, which is a modern window commemorating the first Protestant community in Colmar. Unlike other parts of France, Alsace was allowed to retain some freedom of religion even in 17th-18th century, so this really was a beginning and not a false start for Protestantism in the area.
