Bryce...Hi!... One of my favorite hobbies is photography restoration projects, then creating JPEG albums to email to my clients who are interested in these project.  We would love to see photos essays..maybe on an eco-village in the process of development, or a renovation project .....maybe a series on sustainable communities, or a re-development project on greyfields and/or brownfields...So we came up with the idea of asking the photographers among us to participate in this event...as per:

"Photo Nuts...Let us discover your views on the subject of this Trend. Oh! AND...We love photos! Photo essays count! (You only need 150 eco-wise descriptive words) ..."

Hope you and everyone at the photographers group will consider making a visual presentation. it could be fun!
