Hunkered Down

 

A bit of calm for all after the storm, I hope!

Hoorn, Netherlands.


Have a great weekend.

(for the second day in a row!)

An impressive bit of graphic-ing, Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.
Fabulous lighting and texture!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks a million, Robin. You were there that wonderful day. And BTW, Happy Birthday today!

More wonderful complexity, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Ray. This harbor was full of it!
Great lines and darks and lights!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks a million, Elizabeth.

Aren't we all glad about that! I like the abstractness of this image.
With all those lines and shadows, I think it would also look fab in black and white. Have a good weekend
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, SAVO. And yes, B&W would have been a good way to go. I think it was that wood pulley that made me keep it in color, to be honest! smile

This is what I like about an harbour. All the different things that come with boat.
Wonderful play of lines and lighting. Before we know we both will have 'long weekends'grin..
The boat on the right looks secure enough for some heavy winds.
Ginnie Hart: Everything looks very safe-n-secure here, MLMA. It's hard to picture a hurricane upsetting them a bit. And yes, one day you, too, will have long weekends! i can hardly wait.

a fine detail (and composition) with fine lines - yes, "a bit calm after the storm" - are your relatives at the Michigan Lakes well? I read that the storm has touched Chicago ...
Ginnie Hart: Bedankt, Philine, and yes, my family is well. Lake Michigan sloshed around quite a bit. And my nephew in Greenwich, CT, may still be without power. What a storm! It's hard to believe everything will eventually get back to "normal."

What a wonderful shot Ginnie, such clarity.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Sally.
I discovered a few years ago that ropes on boats are called sheets ... That's all I know about boats and sailing.
Ginnie Hart: Sheets? I can hardly wait to ask Astrid when she gets home from work (she was quite the sailor in her day!). That's a new one for me, Richard! Thanks.

Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, JP. Merci.
i think that reminds me of a luba song, remember luba? oh nevermind haha, very nice boat pictures you have lately!
Ginnie Hart: Luba??? No, I don't remember luba, Elaine. HA! But thanks!
Ah Friday properly grin Actually this is a better picture than Thursday's imposter grin
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHA! It's amazing what we do to get attention, Bill, right? grin Thanks.

I'm glad you posted today Ginnie: this is all so full of character & calm...
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Chris, for your vote of confidence. As I just said to Bill, "the things we do to get attention!" smile

Gorgeous detail..light..shadow and textures. Yes - a little calm...for now!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Marcie. Right now we need a lot of calm!

I like this Ginnie, for the close up of so much stuff, and also for its brightness and fine contrast and colour. Right I shall now have to be nasty to everyone else after using up all my praise.
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHA! No wonder I like you, Chad! grin Thank you, kind sir.
Ha ha... Again?
Has the weekend started yet? ;o)
Ginnie Hart: It has officially started for me, LC. In a few more hours it will have also started for Astrid. YAY. smile
here's a little luba vid for ya .... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gy8gYzlK2xk

i may be dating myself smile
Ginnie Hart: OMG! I can't believe I've never heard of her before, Elaine. Where have I been all my life. You have great Canadian singers, you know!

"Luba is a Canadian musician, singer, songwriter and recording artist from Ukrainian descent. She was commercially active from 1980 to 1990, 2000 to 2001 and is active again from 2007 to present."
Love the rope lines and their shadows.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Mary. So do I. smile

I do like all these ropey details, Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Lisl. Me, too. smile
boat world, nautica, inspiring to me always!
Ginnie Hart: Me, too, Juan Carlos. Always. Gracias.
Sun seems to be back in town. A very good way to start the week-end Ginnie. Sailing... yes, why not !

Have a lovely w-e dear.
Ginnie Hart: The sun is definitely shining here in the Netherlands, Flo. May all feel its warmth this weekend, no matter where! Merci.

This would make an awesome jigsaw puzzle, Ginnie! I like it!
Ginnie Hart: WOW. Now that you say it, Helen, you're so right. We have a jigsaw puzzle going all the time. smile
They keep their noses clean. Nice detail Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Yes, they do, Janet. smile Thanks.
plus on photogrpahie et plus on fait attention aux moindres détails
Ginnie Hart: It's all in the details, Angevine, isn't it! smile Merci.
Nice shot Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Navin.
I love infinitely this subject in photography and the light on these marine elements is magnificent. Bravo Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Anything aquatic/maritime is wonderful to me, Marie. Merci.
Nicely selected mix of shapes and shadows Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.
You were right to keep the colour, Ginnie. The eye cannot help but be drawn to the wooden pulley which would have been lost in B&W. The light is fabulous and gives wonderful clarity to the whole image.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you for your generous vote of confidence, Beverly!
Hope we get this weather next week Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Me, too, Mick. smile
I love the way that you got right into the rigging Ginnie... great angles and shadows....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.

Superb composition with an excellent framing. Colours are very nice. I like it. Have a lovely evening Ginnie. Amicalement Antoine.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Antoine. Merci.
Looks shipshape to me smile
Ginnie Hart: Yes, indeed, John. Too bad this isn't an image of the East Coast shoreline!
Superb details in a wonderful light Ginnie. Enjoy your weekend!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.
an almost abstract image. Very good!
Ginnie Hart: Hartstikke bedankt, Wim.
A wonderful collection of lines...
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Larry. Harbors have a lot of that, it seems! smile

I'm with Richard T on this; the limit of my knowledge, too. Oh, and the fact the toilet is called the heads. All the attention of Hurricane Sandy seems to be in the US; no mention of the large loss of life in the Caribbean and Cuba.
Ginnie Hart: You could put my knowledge of boats into a thimble, Alan, but I sure do love them. And yes, I wish the whole impact of Sandy was being discussed in the news.....
Like the combination of bold lines and curves in this Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Fred.

Lovely angles and light and yes I do wish for calm after the storm!

Happy weekend to you too smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Cherry. So many are in need of calm these days!
Wonderful use of light and shadows Ginnie. Really like the angles and lines too. Beautifully composed along with excellent sharpness. Well done!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks as always, John, for stopping by!

Like Savo, I think it would be interesting to see this in black and white; however...then the image might loose the warm "Ginnie style" that I've come to associate with you.

I always enjoy images that are 'part of a whole.' For some reason that helps me see lines and shapes with fresh eyes.
Ginnie Hart: It was the wood pulley and those tiel bumpers! I couldn't resist them, Sue. smile Thank you kindly. And yes, sometimes it's the trees we want to see instead of the forest!

I love details, Ginnie, and this one is wonderful by its geometry and colours. I read in some comments that the photo could be great in black and white but I don't see it that way. The orange wooden piece of equipment would entirely lose its prominence and contrast with the blue pieces, I prefer it this way.
Ginnie Hart: You're a sweetheart, Petra. Thanks for your vote of confidence. smile
You sure know how to compose an image Ginnie... making the complex simple is a challenge!
Ginnie Hart: You sure know how to make my day, Doug. Thank you kindly.
yeah clam and secured smile
Ginnie Hart: Just the way I like it, Joshi. Thanks.
