A place where magic happens...
Ginnie Hart: It does appear so, Ray! smile
this all looks very chunky and hands-on, Ginnie, the right sort of image to set the tone for the start of a week.
Ginnie Hart: I have a feeling it gets less "chunky" as the week goes by, Ayush. smile Thanks.
Super sharpness, Ginnie!

Ok - Off I go, Hi Ho Hi Ho.... I use slightly smaller implements of torture in my business though...
Ginnie Hart: Yes, Elizabeth, I would hope so, lest your place be considered a worse "torture chamber" than it already is. HA! smile

ok, is this the set of 'Texas Chainsaw Massacre'? lol i've got a set in my picture tonight, hope you enjoy it smile
Ginnie Hart: Oh yes, Elaine. Our images go together quite well today! smile
i could spent days looking around in this old shop... it's even better than a 100 year old hardware store...
nice treatment Ginnie....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: I could, too, Peter. I love the "reenactment." smile Thanks.

We say "Back to the grindstone" smile Look at all those lovely tools - you could probably make just about anything here (well, perhaps not a nuclear reactor, for example...)
Ginnie Hart: Actually, we say that, too, Alan, but I'm more used to the salt mines. HA! But, yes, I think one could exist in total bliss for some time, tinkering around here. smile

First I thought it were Astrid's photo- oh, we are still in Enkhuizen - a place you seem to be confined to- to the different chains you could be enchained to, too!
Ginnie Hart: LOL, Philine, about being "confined" to this delightful open-air museum. I could spend an entire year showing all my images from there, but, trust me, I won't. smile

This is the real work. I always love the old workshops with the tools. Wonderful POV and love the B&W. (some say, back to the battlefield, terug naar het slachtveld)
Ginnie Hart: Back to the saltmines, back to the grindstone, back to the battlefield! I guess we all get the picture, MLMA. smile Hartstikke bedankt.

I think I can guess who would be in their element in a place like this Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Oh, yes, Chris. You know her well! smile

Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Joshi.

Just look at all that stuff, junk so,e might say, museum others. A grim reminder of what work was for so,e people Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: It would be a heavenly place to work for someone I know, Chad. smile

And what a lot you are showing today, Ginnie - too much good stuff to leave out
Ginnie Hart: I told Philine I have enough pics for an entire year! smile. Thanks, Lisl.

This looks more like dungeons than salt mines. You have done a nice strong b&w conversion. I like it.
Ginnie Hart: I've been waiting for someone to say something about S&M, Louis. grin
In 1966 I travelled in a coach along the full length of the Zuiderzee, I was in awe at what an amazing construction it is, we stopped half way along and took photos, which i still have somewhere.
Ginnie Hart: This entire area is just wonderful to see, Brian. I'm so glad you had a chance to see it for yourself, even though I'm sure a lot has changed since 1966!
This looks like a place where some serious hands-on work was done, Ginnie. Love how your treatment brings out the details so clear & sharp.
Ginnie Hart: Astrid would be in heaven working there, Beverly, which is probably why it appealed to me when I saw it. smile Thank you.
how lucky are we that we don't have to return to the salt mines!! smile
Ginnie Hart: Isn't that the truth, Robin!
Heavy duty work seems having been done there Ginnie...
Superb image!
Ginnie Hart: Someone knows what they're doing there, Richard. Thanks.
It looks as though somebody could walk in and start using the tools, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Pauline. That's how everything felt that day at the open-air museum!

That looks a wonderful place Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: You'd love it, Anne!
That looks a powerful vice, of course we saw chain making on that great visit to the Black Country Museum or was it Blists Hill at Ironbridge.
Presumably the chains were to keep the workers busy!
