    Actually, its not. But it was modeled after Wartburg Castle in Germany, so I suppose its the closest I can get without leaving Wisconsin :)

    Comments & critiques always welcome!

    2. A bit of history for you... Wartburg castle was where Martin Luther translated the New Testament into German so that the common people could read it.

    I like #3 the most...I really like the contrast and perspective

    I also like the historical tie-in ;)

    Hey Wendy!

    I really like #2. I like how it seems like Luther is preaching and refering to Christ and what He did on the cross.

    YOU have a "Wartburg" in Wisconsin? :) How cool is that!?!?
    And at first I thought, hey, she's been to Germany without saying hallo!?!? ;)

    Very nice impressions here, I like the view through the arch (Photo 3) best of all.
    Though the wavey line of the roof in Photo 4 is also nice.

    Wartburg is still on my list of places to go to! Have never been there.
    It was GDR for all the years of my young life, and after the reunification we have made only very few trips over so far. Must go see more!
