Wonderful montage, Ginnie...I was thinking off you all, all this week.

Fabulous collage. I keep repeating myself, blame it on the Internet and Shutterchance. We had a wonderful day with lots of laughter and 'CAMERA-derie' (quote of Lisl's husband).
That Youtube is a memory to keep.
Ginnie Hart: We'll never forget it, I know. We're so dang lucky, aren't we!!!

Happy memories of a terrific day Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Yes, indeed, Chris. We'll never forget it, thanks to you!
Excellent montage portrait!
Nice day to you Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Roland. Merci.
a great collage and the video is a delight. It was lovely to see everybody.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Bill. We really did have a Blists Blast, didn't we! smile

Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Vintage, and I know. We'd love to have you with us!
Excellent work Ginnie I watched the whole thing, we even looked happy at times.

Ma ma mia!
You guys sure had a blast, G!
Everybody loves Mr Pig. smile
It's quite cold in May, isn't it?
Ginnie Hart: Mamma Mia! YES, LC. It was a great time. And yes, we were surprised how "warm" it was in the Netherlands by comparison when we came back yesterday.
We've just watched the video Ginnie, it looks as though you all had a great time. Sorry we couldn't be there, it would have been nice to meet Lisl and Frank for the first time, oh and Mr.Pig, as well as renewing older acquaintances. Next time hopefully. Maureen and Brian
Ginnie Hart: You were missed, Brian, along with Maureen. We had such a good time, very similar to last year in Dudley. Thanks and say HI to Maureen.

Splendid !!! Looks you you had a jolly good time.
Still pretty cold in London by the looks of it.
A beautiful selection of pics.
Enjoy your week-end.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Elsabe. We had a great time and, yes, it was warmer here in the Netherlands when we returned. HA!
Excellent work, Ginnie,good memories. I'll post my meagre efforts next week
Ginnie Hart: It was great to meet you, Frank. Life on SC will never again be the same. HA!
I can see you enjoyed yourselves enormously. Good for you!!
Ginnie Hart: Ja, inderdaad, Wim! We had a great time! Bedankt.
A grand way of remembering a good way out Ginnie. Very well presented.

helloooo ginnie, looks like a great time was had by all... nice portraits!
Ginnie Hart: It was a fabulous time, Elaine. Thanks.
Thank you for presenting the people you met in this beautiful collage Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: You're more than welcome, Richard. We had a great time! Merci.
Only needs a matching set of fingerprints now smile
Ginnie Hart: HA! That's a good one, John. smile
Wow, Ginnie looking at those fun photos was almost as good as being there...almost.
Ginnie Hart: Awww. That's great, Beverly. Maybe one day!!!
It is a fine bunch of world famous photographers gathered in this collage Ginnie... it's nice to put a face to some of you that i have corresponded with for a long time now... perhaps Penny and i will try to make next years reunion... but we will need lots of notice so that we can save up enough air miles to cross the pond and aback grin....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: It's probable we will NOT be in England next year, Peter, because Chris and Chad will be flying to see us here in the Netherlands instead. So make that 2014, which might give you enough time to save up your nickels and dimes?! That would be so fun. smile

By the looks of it you all had a wonderful time smile
Ginnie Hart: We had a total blast, Frida. smile
Fantastic! Love the smiles and laughter and plain ol fun that is shown throughout!
Ginnie Hart: We had a blast, Robin. Some of these people we have met now for 3 years running. By now we're old friends. smile

Wonderful montage and video, they show how much fun we all had on the day smile
Ginnie Hart: Yes, Cherry, and you were part of it! You're such a good sport to join our crazy SC bunch! smile
Oh, I wish I could have been there.
Ginnie Hart: You would have had a blast with us, Michael. Maybe one year!
This was so much fun to see and watch! I wish I could join you all, what fun you had!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Elizabeth. We don't expect to be back next year because Chad and Chris are coming to see us. Maybe you can start saving for a trip over in 2014???

I LOVE these pictures and your magnificent slideshow, Ginnie. So glad you had a great time. All of you! I would have joined in on the fun for sure, had I been there. I get quite silly. smile Looks like I would have fit in quite well with the SC bunch! Thank you for sharing.
Ginnie Hart: If you get quite silly, Kay, you would definitely fit right in. grin We are quite the bunch of lunatics and love every minute of our camaraderie. One year I hope you can join us. Start saving for 2014?!

Ahh!! It's good to see so many people that have been just names to me before. They are look so happy; were they told that Chris and Bill had to leave early? Hahahah!! Now to watch the video.
Ginnie Hart: Maybe one year you can join us at one of these meet-ups, Alan, and have everyone else meet you...like we have already done. We had such a blast, as you've probably already seen by now in the video.

Yes, this is a wonderful collage gathering all the dear and charming Shutterchancers you met in England! Priceless is the photo in the centre! It's a pty that I cannot view the video (in Germany not possible), but I imagine it as a lovely one!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you so much, Philine, for stopping by in this time of grief and sorrow. Our deepest thoughts are with you! Astrid wrote you yesterday, which e-mail I hope you have seen. We very much want to come to the funeral, but need to know the time and place.

And yes, I found out the Mamma Mia song I got off the internet was not available for Germany. So I plan to load a different song later, after which I will send you the YouTube.

I think the best part is that you guys are so close to enjoy such a great meet up! It does look like a blast! Thanks for sharing. smile
Ginnie Hart: Just an hour's flight away really IS close, Jen. Sometimes I still pinch myself because it's so hard to believe. Thanks. And Happy Mother's Day!

Having a blast seems to be so apt for Blist Hill...delighted to hear that it was a good visit.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, George. Maybe one day we'll get to meet you. THAT would be a blast, I'm sure. smile
