Photo a Week Challenge: Glass Chandeliers

In Europe I was fascinated by the variety of glass chandeliers in all their glory.

Belgium revelled in antique chandeliers, such as this one in the Hotel Bluets in Brussels.

However, I suspect that chandeliers is not going to come up in anyone’s  challenge so I thought I’d go for it!
