A dear friend of mine and my sister-in-law were in town this week chaperoning their children’s sixth-grade class trip. Little did I know seeing them would be "cake", but the photo adventure to follow would be delicious "icing".
After hugs and good-byes, 72 very well-behaved students boarded their buses for a morning of spelunking, and I set off to see what I could find to photograph.
Can anyone say "mother lode"?
Their home base was the downtown Holiday Inn, better known as home for the "Chattanooga Choo Choo". Today I’ll share a few views from their rear gardens and courtyard, an all-you-can-eat smorgasbord for the eyes.
If you’ve had opportunity to visit Anna Carson Photography, you’ll understand why I’m dedicating this Project Green post to her; bonus points to anyone who can tell me the inspiration for the post title!
for visitors to enjoy the views surrounding them. Their ornate scroll work
immediately caught my eye–they weren’t just tables and chairs,
they were beautiful pieces of art!
Delicate laced shadows added another dimension of beauty.
Visit Anna Carson Photography for the 4-1-1 on Project Green.

I love how you worked the shadows in with the chair. The cross patterns/lines are wonderful. I’m glad you decided to bring your camera along. I’ve been keeping my little point and shoot with me but am tempted to bring the Canon more often. Nice images, Robin. Can’t wait for more.
These are just lovely. I agree with Robert about the shadows. I love the way the green patina looks and how it highlights the texture of the chairs. Cool photos.
Mary Engelbreit. A chair of bowlies. 🙂
Love these shots, Robin. Delicate, subtle, and graceful.
Oh beautiful shot!
I’m GREEN with envy of talented photographers. Great photos.
Beautiful table and chairs. You caught them very nicely. And I love the shadow showing the lacework.
I love your photos ..I also thought I would give you some ideas for the graduate and for wedding ideas. I am a Thirty-one gifts
consultant we have some really great ideas for both . I would be glad to get you a catalog .
I am so thrilled to be mentioned here! Love the green bench. I LOVE BENCHES ans photograph them often. You can see some of them on my professional website linked from my blog.
Great Greens Robin! 😉
Robert, I’ve been wanting to head to the Choo Choo FOREVER to take pictures–I KNEW it’d be FULL of opportunity; early in the day there were few tourists so I had my way for a while without too many stares.
Raven, I agree…had they been painted a flat color, it would’ve been a disservice to their ornate beauty.
Jeanne, BING!BING!BING!! WINNAH!!! I do love me some Mary Englebreit!!! Bravo & Pensieve Points to you!! 🙂
Thanks Kelsey & Swampmeister :)!
Eve, I wanted to post a dozen more angles, but I figured sometimes “less” is “more”….
Cindy, thanks! I’ve actually got some friends who are Thirty-one consultants (but it didn’t occur to me to ask them about gifts–they should thank YOU for the idea 🙂 ).
Anna, this I know about you, even after having “met” you for such a short time; I need to check out the shots I HAVEN’T seen so I can “learn” by observation!
The chair looks like verdigris, is it? It’s so beautiful! 😀
Beautifully done! Well worth the stares!
A chair of bowlies. :^D Love that quote.
Beautiful photos! I love the shadow of lace!
Mary, I’m not sure…it’s heavy, so I’m thinking painted/treated wrought iron maybe?
JC, I agree! Small price to pay!
Nancypants, hehe, it’s always made me grin.
Karina, sounds like you “see” what I see :).
