It's Monday

 

Giddy up, let's go!

(Palace Square, St. Petersburg, Russia, 2006)

 

Bill gave me the idea to go back to old photos I've done nothing with all these years.

This is from a Scandinavian Cruise I took with Donica in my past life,

using my old Canon Powershot S3 IS camera.

Superbe contre-jour.
Ginnie Hart: Merci, Martine.
This is a spectacular silhouette, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.
What an amazing statue, Ginnie! You and your little Canon did well!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Elizabeth. Sometimes we can be surprised! smile

I'm sure there are a lot more treasures where that came from! Kudos to Bill!
Ginnie Hart: Truth be told, Robin, I'm making a book for my kids of some of my SC images and wanted to make sure I had some from this 2006 trip. Bill was the impetus, so YAY for Bill, indeed.
Excellent work with the exposure, Ginnie... Looks better as a silhouette... smile
Ginnie Hart: I tend to agree with you about the silhouette look, Sudipto. Thanks.

This is very striking, Ginnie - good idea to look back on old pictures
Ginnie Hart: I think I told you I'm making a book for my kids, Lisl, and after seeing Bill's idea, I thought why not. I want Russia in! smile

What an impressive silhouette! It rfeminds me a bit of the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin - with the Victoria!
I'm still using this camera.
Ginnie Hart: It definitely is similar to Berlin's Brandenburg Gate, Philine. It would be fun to put them side by side to compare them.

I thought at first we were in Berlin, until I saw the figure on the left
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Chris. It makes me want to put them side by side to see the differences.

Impressive, Ginnie. I love the POV. Great silhouette here. (Could be Germany indeed, like Philine just mentioned)
Ginnie Hart: It's been fun to go back to these "old" images, Astrid. Bedankt.
Inderdaad, lets go into the new week !!
Leuke tekst bij het mooie silhouet van het beeld, dacht eerst aan de Berlijnse Muur.
Ginnie Hart: Bedankt, Marjolein. It would be fun to compare the two statues side by side.

I like the strong silhouette here. Your edit hides any effects of a lower resolution image.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Alan. This only shows how "strong" those cameras were back then, even though we've come from far.
Très belle prise de vue Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Merci, Claudine.

Nothing as triumphal as this sitting atop a triumphal arch Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Chad! Well said.
This picture reminds me of Joan of Arc... even tho she wasn't an angel smile i love it!
Ginnie Hart: Yes, I can see that, Elaine. I like the idea. Thanks.

Excellent silhouette. I like the composition and the conversion of the sky.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Louis.

A splendid silhouette that evokes a lot of action here!! Great capture for a Monday.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Steven. Sometimes we really do need a push, however gentle...or not. HA!
I have been doing something similar with some of my old photos which I have never edited. I love this in silhouette!
Ginnie Hart: I suppose we all need to go back and revisit our myriad images, Ruthie, to see them with new eyes?!
What a brilliant silhouette you've made here, Ginnie. Bet you have many more gems just waiting to be discovered again.
Ginnie Hart: Most kind of you, Beverly. I have a feeling it would do us all some good to go back and see our images with new eyes!
Good for you Ginnie and this is a fine start!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Bill, for the idea. Actually, I'm making a photo book for my kids and wanted them to see some images from Russia, etc. You got me thinking about it.
> So glad you pulled this one out to view.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Jacquelyn. I have a feeling we all need to go back to our old images and see them with new eyes?!
Love this a lot and it reminds me of an old one of mine.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Mary. Maybe we all need to start looking at our older images lost somewhere in files we haven't opened in years!
