PLT meets Project Green

Project Looking Through is giving way to Project Green, hosted by the talented photographer, Anna Carson. Seemed appropriate then to "look through" the old into the new.
A view of new life through a window in the ruins of St. Michael monastery, founded in 863 in Heidelberg, Germany. September, 2006.

Visit Anna's photo blog to see samples of her gorgeous work and for links to more Project Green participants. And feel free to join in!

Jeanne, I always, always appreciate (and enjoy...and relate to...) the way you "see"--both in photography and in your words.

Perfectly conjoined PLT and PG--nicely done :).

This image is stunning. I love how the brick leads the eye. And once lead, the brilliance of the green awaiting is wonderful. Great work.

Beautiful photo. Such thick walls... I like the contrast of the walls and then the soft green in the light.

Thanks, Robin. The feeling is mutual, my dear.

Very cool shot, Stacey. I'm enjoying all your photographs. Croatia was amazing. Let's go back! :)

Thanks, Robert. It felt very much that way in real life, too.

I know what you mean, fishing guy. I can't wrap my mind around it--so much history there.

You're welcome, r from r&j. :) "But, but . . . what?"

Thanks, Raven. The thickness of the walls really impressed me. It was a huge structure and high on a mountainside. I can't imagine what they went through to build it.

Thanks, June, lilli & nevada, and Toni! I so appreciate everyone taking the time to stop by and comment.

This is very clever. I love the texture of the brick leading to the crisp green!

Oooooh Jeanne!!! I'm so glad you're participating! I've always loved your photos. (read: Jealous)

Last night when I was snapping my shot, Zane pushed me out of the way so he could take one. I had no idea he was *that* interested. So I set up a blog for him. He couldn't fall asleep he was so excited and seeing green everywhere!
