Looks like they are all very intent on the craftsman even if one the "craftsmen" has a camera in her hands.
Ginnie Hart: HA! You got me! grin
Super portraits Ginnie - the glass blower has them enchanted! smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Martin. I wonder if it's because we don't see such craftsmen (glass blowers) every day?
the title is so cute and goes so well with the picture smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Joshi. Who said we're ever too old to have wonder in our eyes!
This is an excellent collage Ginnie! Well done indeed.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir. Merci.
Or grumpy old men smile
Ginnie Hart: I decided to be politically correct, John, and not go that far! grin
You've captured some wonderful expressions here, Ginnie. I wonder if any one of these gentlemen signed on for glass blowing lessons.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Beverly. It so happens this was at the Open House of the glass blower's new shop and anyone who wanted to take a stab at blowing glass could. But most just watched the others blow, including me (since I was the photographer).

Superb portraits with an excellent monochrome. Great work Ginnie. Have a lovely evenin Ginne. Amicably Antoine.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Antoine. Merci.
Nice group of ageing faces there Ginnie. The guy on the left could almost be the brother, at least, of a friend of mine in my camera club.
Ginnie Hart: I figured many of us could relate, Brian. HA! Thanks.
What wonderful faces... nothing is as good for older people as new learning...
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Larry, and you're so right! Kids forever at heart.

A fine collection of old men portraits! (Though I expect the chap on the left would be mortified to hear himself referred to as an old man!)
Ginnie Hart: The one on the left could probably be the son of the others, Ingrid?! HA! But lately I've become a bad judge of age, I'm afraid. Thanks.
A great study.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Jacquelyn.

My comment should have said, collage of faces.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks for the "correction," Cherry. smile
...and who wouldn't be!
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Tom!
This is so wonderful Ginnie! I meet so many older folk in the course of my day at the "eye shop" - these guys remind me of several I know! Had one guy the other day, asked him if I might move his cane for the exam, he didn't miss a beat and said "well what will I hit you with then?"! Love them!
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHA! Gotta love them, Elizabeth. Soon we'll be one of them. grin
Very cool series of portraits.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Michael.
avec les yeux et cette expression,j'imagine la pensée
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, l'Angevine! Merci.
That gentleman lower right is giving you a funny look Ginnie. The rest are completely enthralled
Ginnie Hart: I think he was in a daze, Janet. grin Thanks.
Great to see these people mesmerized by the proceedings. It is indeed fascinating to see glass being blown!
Ginnie Hart: I'm sure people would feel the same about watching you etch, Wim! Bedankt.
Oh, what happened to my comment?!
Did you get it, G?
Ginnie Hart: Well, now that you ask...I don't think so, LC. sad Thanks for stopping by again!

Good to see those young-old men taking a keen interest in glass blowing. Nice set of pics Ginnie, but what happened to the older ladies???
Ginnie Hart: Some of the older ladies were actually blowing glass, George. HA!
