Brilliant decay, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Ray. We can't get enough of it, can we!
Now you know this just takes my breath away! Off to Mexico!
Ginnie Hart: I thought of you the entire time, Robin! Wabi sabi! smile And now for you, travel mercies.
Ahhh yes... excellent textures.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Jacquelyn. Why do we photographers love decay like this!?!
I thought it was going to be a bit of the Scottish play. Knock Knock, knock! Who's there, i' th' name of Belzebub? . . . [Knock] Knock, knock! Who's there, in th' other devil's name?
Ginnie Hart: Hmmmm. I don't know that one, Michael. grin

Wabi Sabi 100%.
And yes I can come out for a mid-week break.
Fabulous details here.
Knock Knock was one of the first things/riddles I heard when I was around American kids.... I did not know you could yodel
Ginnie Hart: Total Wabi Sabi, indeeed. I thought of Robin the entire time. It's funny how you remember the knock-knock jokes from America. I think that was the time everyone was reciting them. HA! You don't hear them that much anymore. Hmmmm. Yodel??? Who said I could yodel???
The decay is fascinating. Not sure I'd want to knock though.
Ginnie Hart: You do have a point, Michael. smile

a typical Ginnie photograph - I like it very much!
Ginnie Hart: HA! I guess "typical" is okay, Philine. I like it when you can tell it's me. smile Thanks.
well it's well established Ginnie... wonderful colour and texture....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Peter. It's definitely been around for awhile.
I love the simplicity of this beautiful image, Ginnie!!!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Elizabeth. I try to pay attention sometimes to "less is more." smile

I like very much the depiction of this old wooden texture and this old knocker, simple but beautiful
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Marie. Sometimes less is more!

I don't know how you do it, Ginnie, but this is tops for me
Ginnie Hart: You're most kind, Lisl, but this is how I saw it in my mind's eye when I actually saw it in real life! smile

Not a shot from the official guide book, I should think! Not an opportunity I would have seen so well done.
Ginnie Hart: I usually look at the forest, Alan, but sometimes I do see the trees. HA! Thanks.
A fine bit of rust and decay Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Bill. It immediately caught my eye!

Ginnie, you are the Queen of detail.
Ginnie Hart: No, Chad. That would be Lady Polder. I'm learninbg from her. smile But thanks anyway.
Wow, superb textures here Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: The actual door had most of them, Richard, so I had a great start. smile Thanks.
I would very much like a midweek break. This door needs some work eh?
Ginnie Hart: We all need mid-week breaks, Mary. I hope you get yours!

Nice vintage door, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Lots of history behind it, for sure, HF. smile

I know the subject is the fine door knocker, but I am drawn to the layers of paint. I have endless photos of peeling paint on boats - always fascinated by the life lived.
Ginnie Hart: To be honest, Mike, the subject really is the door...but the knocker made me think of all those knock-knock jokes we used to tell. "Endless photos of peeling paint on boats"...sounds like a photo-op, doesn't it. smile
I haven't been to this Roman town in England yet. You know, I've actually got a Roman Town list to do. wink

Done Colchester, Rochester, Silchester, Leicester, Manchester, Worcester and Winchester. He he smile I know, it's a funny obsession.

Come on, you "collect" church cushions, right? My ~chester "hobby" is more "normal" than yours! wink
Ginnie Hart: HA! You collect "chesters" and I collect church cushions. Sounds pretty cool to me. You'll love Cirencester, ifever you get there.
Love the textures, Ginnie! smile
Ginnie Hart: Many kind thanks, Martin.

Oe is coming, just a moment smile

Great shot of this well used door.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Louis. It immediately caught my eye!
A fine capture Ginnie...
just finishing your phrase
Matthew 7:7
Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.
Ginnie Hart: One of those verses for the ages, Ronky. Perfect. Thanks.
I like these sort of things, quite a few pictures in there with all that flaking paint and the knocker.
Ginnie Hart: It actually wasn't the knocker that most had my attention, Brian, but the knock-knock part was all I came up with. smile
Nice textures and age, just asking to be photographed.
Ginnie Hart: Some things are photos waiting to happen, John! smile
