Yup! A gorgeous still-life image, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.
Love the treatment Ginnie! Makes it feel so aged!

That shop was full of nice goodies like these.
Great picture.
Wonderful colours and treatment. Love the light.
I wonder what was in the crate, left. The top line is French, underneath is German....
Ginnie Hart: We had so much fun eating and looking around there, didn't we! What a charming place...where no one would expect it to be! Hartstikke bedankt, MLMA. I thought that "crate" on the left was wallpaper??
It's a great shop to be in with a camera Ginnie... lovely composition and aging treatment....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: You'd have a heyday there, Peter. Thanks!
beautiful light as ever. excellent composition. like the light filtering through the fabric of the shade
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Ayush. It was a delightful ambiance for the camera!

But Griechenland is a German word! What a treasure market - a flea market -I love the Dutch word 'rommelmarket'!
Ginnie Hart: Yes, that's what Astrid picked up on, too, Philine. So, a little bit of French AND German in this market, smack dab in Georgia's rural south!

Years ago, I sometimes used to dream in this colour, Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Oh, Lisl! I would have loved to see that! grin
you find the prettiest things in your travels! i love this pic xoxox and btw you totally could wear your hair like mine, would look great on you... and no, it's called a vanity mirror, it's in front of the passenger seat in the car smile the rear view mirror is another animal entirely
Ginnie Hart: AHA! It WAS the vanity mirror. Why didn't I remember that! grin I actually like pixie haircuts but have never dared one for me. Hmmm. Maybe in my next life. smile Thanks.
A fine bits and doings corner Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Bill. Thay had lots of them all over the store. We were short of eyes! smile

I'm not sure what all these things are Ginnie but you have made them look very pretty
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Chris. I think Astrid was in heaven because this was a bit like window dressing, to be honest. smile

A box of boogies! Is this an old style box for placing jazz record in Ginnie?
Ginnie Hart: HA! Beats me, Chad! grin

Lots to enjoy in this from the textures on the wall, the lovely old clocks and the crown on the wall. Beautiful lighting.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Alan. You'd love this place...well, except that it's inside. smile
classic smile
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Joshi.
Bonjour. smile
So where is the missing Dutch link, G? ;o)
Is French popular in the Deep South?
I thought it was Spanish?
Ginnie Hart: EXACTLY! Duh. I know. It was a surprise. smile And great food.

These are so cool!! Love the timeless effect and processing. Great find!!!
Ginnie Hart: It was such a big surprise, Marcie...where we celebrated the 8th wedding anniversary of our friends, Bob and Peggy. Thanks.
Great silllife (3 l's!) You working on the photo makes this even more 'old'.
Ginnie Hart: Bedankt, Wim. I love stuff like this. smile
en soufflant l'heure,le temps passe si vite....
Ginnie Hart: Not even two clocks can keep up with time, l'Angevine. smile Merci.

Oh, you have been away again grin Great picture of a lovely place to ramble
Ginnie Hart: We were crossing ships in the night, Louis. I still can't believe we were gone while you were back here in the Netherlands. Next time that won't happen, if we can help it!
Yes...excellent composition and light! One of my favorites!!
Ginnie Hart: You're a sweetheart, Andrei. Thank you.
The crown bottle stoppers are fabulous.
Ginnie Hart: HA! So that's what they are! grin Thanks, Mary.
Wonderful Ginnie, what an interesting collection! As ever, I like your treatment smile
Ginnie Hart: You're such a sweetheart, Martin. Thanks. smile
Wonderful composition, nicely to look. I am greeting
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Zielona.
Marvelous exposure...
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Larry.
A really interesting mix of bits and pieces in this corner, and some tasty sounding dishes in the menu on the link.
Ginnie Hart: It's a great place, Brian, full of trivia and good cuisine. smile Thanks.

sure is a lot of vintage stuff there, surprising to know that it's found in the south.. smile great catch!
Ginnie Hart: Such things in unexpected places always surprise me, Rian! smile Thanks.
A wonderful still-life picture Ginnie! Well done.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir. Merci.
I liked viewing this good shot on my iPad so I could zoom in to the details.
Ginnie Hart: Aww, shucks. Thanks, Jacquelyn. smile
superb image Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Super thanks, Juan Carlos. smile
Looks as though they raided the flea markets of Paris!
Ginnie Hart: HA! That's possible, Tom, because the owner told us she had just been in Amsterdam when she found out we live in the Netherlands. Hmmm. I hadn't thought about why she might have been there...to find the real deal!
A fine study of bric-a-brac, itself a french term coined in victorian times to describe such collections.
Ginnie Hart: Aha! I like that, Fred. THANKS! Merci. smile

I just love how you see these images smile
Ginnie Hart: You're a sweetheart, Cherry. Thank you. smile
Very atmospheric, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Graeme. You'd love the place.
The brickwork makes a great background for the shot. The light from that lamp is just right.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Michael. I love brickwork on the inside of buildings!
beautiful photo with a clever presentation
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir. Grazie.

Ginnie, I love this photo, it's very emotional. The colour of it perfectly suits its contents and brings a feeling of old memories.
Ginnie Hart: You're a sweetheart, Petra. Thank you kindly.
Very nice sepia. Is this a cemra setting or post processing?
Ginnie Hart: Just post-porcessing, Navin. smile Thanks.

fantastic lighting here, ginnie. i'd love to visit france.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Sherri. The funny thing is that this was in Gerogia, south of Atlanta in what we normally think as the Deep South. France is truly wonderful. I'd love to go back again...especially since it's so nearby!

Un traitement photo qui se marie bien avec ce d├ęcor..Superbe.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks a million, Jany. Merci.
If you didn't know better, Ginnie, you would swear you were in a shop in rural France. Love how well you've captured each item in that wonderful light; even the texture of the bricks & mortar in the wall stand out.
Ginnie Hart: You're always such a sweetheart, Beverly, in how detailed your comments are. Thank you!
