Tyre has air...its been pushed recently, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Knowing the Dutch, it was probably parked just as the final bell was chiming!
Ha Ha! Too fun!
Ginnie Hart: Fun and so Dutch, Robin. Wait till you came and see it for yourself! smile

I am not intending to push any wheelbarrow this weekend smile
I think we are glued to the TV.
Great title and shot, wonderful processing. Love the quote.
TGIF...... smile
Ginnie Hart: I always love it when Friday comes around for you and you have the weekend to look forward to...especially this one, with the Olympics. TGIF. Hartstikke bedankt.
Beautiful climatic photograph, I like green spaces but I also like such photographs. I am greeting
Ginnie Hart: You're very kind, Zielona. Thank you. Dziękujemy.

Your treatment, as ever, is just right for the subject, Ginnie. And I will take your advice for the weekend (I have a house-full)
Ginnie Hart: You're most kind, Lisl. Having seen you operate in your home, I can just imagine what a house-full means for you. Pace yourself and don't push it, indeed!

I don't know about you Ginnie but I am going to be out & about in the sunshine - whilst it lasts!
Ginnie Hart: I have taken a walk the last 3 days in gorgeous weather, Chris, so I can just imagine you doing the same, while the sunshine lasts! Good for you. But don't push it! smile
Great shot and quote Ginnie... my wheelbarrow's handle broke off last week and one of my neighbours welded it in his garage for me... the hard part was that the tub was made of nylon... so he had to take it apart to do the job... it's great to have good neighbors out here in the countrygrin....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: Nothing like a good, hardy wheelbarrow that can be repaired by good neighbors, Peter. May she live forever! smile

a lovely Ginnie- toning - yes, it looks like 'Feierabend' -It's home time! - rust na het werk! Enjoy your weekend, too!
Ginnie Hart: Hartstikke bedankt, Philine. We really have been enjoying the Olympics and probably won't know what to do when they're all done. HA!
j'apprécie toujours ce traitement et je pourais l'aider à tirer cette brouette....
Ginnie Hart: You're very kind, l'Angevine. Merci.
Most businesses here wouldn't know which end to push
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHA! Well, then. Onwards and upwards. grin
An edition of the very good capture. Regards
Ginnie Hart: Muchas gracias, Pedro.
I wonder what the metal baskets are for? Well seen Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Hmmm. Good question, John. I'll have to ask Astrid when she comes home from work! Thanks.

A very good saying Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Makes sense, doesn't it, Chad. smile
Central London is extremely quiet during the Games.
I guess, everyone is watching wheelbarrow racing in East London?!
The Netherlands would probably get a gold medal for this particular event. wink
Ginnie Hart: My guess is the Netherlands would get a Gold Medal for a lot of things, LC, especially when it comes to cleaning and keeping things organized. smile
I would be very careful to push anything on that floor Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Juan Carlos. grin

A wonderful composition Ginnie with beautiful tones. Love the Quote! Have a great weekend !
Ginnie Hart: Thank you and thank you, Laurette. The same to you and Elsabe.
Very artistic shot. I love it.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Sartenada.
That's a very smart saying and a fine photo.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Mary. It's fun, isn't it. smile
That certainly is a well used barrow, too hot this coming weekend to think of using such things, anyway I'm shooting motorcycle racing tomorrow and birds of prey on Sunday, a busy weekend, oh and watching the Olympics. (Maureen is away in case you haven't guessed.)
Ginnie Hart: You've got your weekend cut out for you, Brian. WOW. This is when I say "Don't push it!" smile

I'll park my 'barrow for the weekend. Those fire baskets do hold the promise of a big party. The I will load a keg on the barrow and join - can't come empty handed.
Ginnie Hart: So I just found out what those baskets are fo, with Astrid sitting beside me to let me know. Very interesting. I didn't have a clue. I love it.
Good advice, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: I thought so, too, Tom. smile Thanks.

have to smile over your weekend advice...some of my busiest days. really nice capture of this old barrow.
Ginnie Hart: I know what you mean, Sherri. Do we ever learn to rest properly?? Thanks.
I truly love the process on colors and hues Ginnie.
Great portrait of a constant gardener/ smile))
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Flo. Merci. These Dutch really know how to do it. smile
I really like the metaphor. Lovely tones too!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Richard. Merci.

This one has an oldie worldy feel to it again.

It its the weekend, time to relax so I don't think I will push ;-)
Ginnie Hart: I love the "oldie worldly" feeling to Europe, Cherry!!! And yes, it IS the weekend. Lots of Olympics for us. smile

Fine thoughts (and image), Ginnie Sounds like its going to be hot and humid here so slowly, slowly, I think. Looks like a few rust holes appearing.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Alan. Your heat and humidity haven't reached us yet, so if you don't mind, please keep it there. We've been very pleasantly cool this week, around 60F+/15C+. My kind of weather. smile
It amazes me to see personal property by the street. In my neighborhood it would be stolen.
Ginnie Hart: This is actually at the side of a church that has an iron fence around it, Larry. The gate was open, of course....
Very nice image Ginnie! Lovely composition as always!! I have a wheelbarrow outside that I intend to fill with tree clippings and "dead heads" from the flowering plants this weekend!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Elizabeth. It looks like your weekend is cut out for you. Olympics, too? smile
Very nice shot. The toning suits the image.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.

You have the knack to finding things I have mislaid Ginnie love this side of your photography.
Ginnie Hart: You're a sweetheart, Peter. Thank you.
Beautiful photo Ginnie! Very rustic!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Charles. I love old stuff like this. smile
Pleasing textures and tones Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Fred.
Parked up for the weekend. An expressive picture, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Graeme. We all need to just park ourselves at times. grin

Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Syam.
Oh yes, so true. Frankly I'd like it if someone would push me in the wheelbarrow once in awhile :^)
Ginnie Hart: HA! I love that thought, Doug. grin Thanks for the smile.
