Project Green: The Camera Walk


Project Green began with Anna of Anna Carson’s Photography.

Since my students went squirrelly on me and all they do is cry and temper tantrum, I am very happy I found all these photo blogs. I don’t know what this place might have become without them. Not only am I getting something to post, I am taking Photo Walks and getting a bit more exercise!

Of course this one, I took right here in our own home:

We don’t know who this pretty is going to be. She had no labels and no blossoms. What she did have was a fabulously cheap price, so we brought her home and placed her beside the orchid we already had.

I also took this next shot in our own home. This little beauty lives on our postage stamp lanai.

Her tag said “Cherry Tomatoes”. If it is to be trusted, these will definitely be generously sized “cherries”. I’ll keep you, ah, posted on their development.

And here is our dining room — the only decorated room in the condo. You can tell my priorities!

Please note the orchids, the air fern in the sea shell, and the overall elegance of this table. It is amazing what one can do with very little if one is willing to shop bargain-bins and close-out sales. This green scene didn’t take a lot of dead green presidents to put together, and I think I am more proud of it than I would have been if it had.

I spotted this site at the end of my walk — right near the the foot of the staircase leading to our condo.

And this shot is just because I loved the way the sun and shadow dressed this fella up. He is an ancient Volkswagen Beetle in need of repair. That seat you see inside is actually crooked. All the seats are jumbled up inside the belly of this little beast. He was once a racer and has chromed duel exhausts protruding from his trunk. If we ever have “Project Rust” I’ll get a shot for you!

Speaking of which — here is my own project announcement. Commencing May 1st and running 26 days, I will be doing Alphabet Photos. Day one is A. Day two is B. Day three is C. Etc. (Just what did you expect from a Pre-K teacher?!) I would love it if you would join me! Please, please say you will!
