Boat Friday

 

This is a gable stone in Antwerp, Belgium.

Here it is in context...I couldn't decide which to use!

 

Have a great weekend!

You have a good eye AND good judgement, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Aw shucks, Ray. Thanks. I actually think you see more in the gable stone when it's alone.

a wonderful gable stone indeed -I had used the context photo - there must be a story around it - which kind of building? Yes, Antwerp was once/still is a famous harbour city. You captured very well the quality of the stone!
Ginnie Hart: Now you have both versions, Philine. It was hard to choose. In this one I find I see more of the details. And yes, thanks for the reminder that Antwerp is a harbor city!

it looks like a coin and makes me think 'don't take any wooden nickels' lolol
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHA! I'll have to remember that, Elaine. Thanks.
Wonderful Ginnie. A Boat Friday waiting for you in Antwerp
Ginnie Hart: Yes, Janet. Waiting for me like I had found the pot of gold! smile Thanks.

A rather lovely and free carving Ginnie. I think that every home should have a gable stone.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Chad. Finding gable stones is like finding money for me. I LOVE them. smile

Both are very pleasing, Ginnie, but I am with you on your choice

Yes, you used the right one. It is stunning in a black sea. I feel I can reach out and carress the waves!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Sister. Astrid helped me make the choice because I was "too close to it." HA! I'm glad the moon and stars were out! smile

There's a fine image for Boat Friday. The passengers look quite calm though, though, despite the swirling seas smile
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Alan. I think the passengers were calmed by Mother Moon and the stars. smile
Aww... I can see G&A on a special boat called "Gin & Tonic". ;o)
Ginnie Hart: HA! Now that would be nice, LC. grin

What exquisite work - both your eye...and the stonework itself. A perfect 'boat Friday'!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Marcie. Boat Friday has a long history for us here at Shutterchance. It's fun, isn't it! smile

A beautiful capture Ginnie with wonderful detail and tones. Happy boat Friday to you !
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Laurette. This is fun! smile
A great variation on Boat Friday Ginnie! I do prefer this isolated version, but like the other for context (as you've done) smile Have a great weekend, too!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks for your vote of confidence, Martin. Sometimes context is everything? smile
I think I prefer this one Ginnie, very nicely executed.
Ginnie Hart: Thak you kindly, Fred.
Flying Dutchman for sure, Ginnie. Museum quality!
Ginnie Hart: HA! You're way too funny, Juan Carlos. grin Thanks.

Well it has the the two of you under the moon and stars. Just keep on going.
Ginnie Hart: We will definitely do that, Louis. Thanks. smile
Nice light in this stone. Beautiful shot
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Focales, for stopping by and commenting here. Merci.
I looked at the other shot and like your black background . A wonderful post.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Mary, for voting. smile
A rather nice bit of weathered stone, it could be the owl and the pussycat, and there is even a moon for the cow to jump over ;-)
Ginnie Hart: Just about everything you could want for a Boat Friday, John. smile Thanks.
both are good but this is the one I would have chosen
Ginnie Hart: THANK YOU, Bill. smile
I think you made the right choice Ginnie but I do also like the other shot as well.
Ginnie Hart: You're most politically correct, Brian. smile Thank you.

un symbole de l'histoire bien présenté par ce médaillon en sceau
Ginnie Hart: It's a real treasure, Angevine, isn't it! Merci.

Beautiful. It looks like a sand sculpture!
Ginnie Hart: A sand sculpture that has become sandstone?! I like that idea, Helen. Thank you and welcome back.
This is my favourite.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks for voting, Jacquelyn. smile
This is very nice but I actually prefer the one in situ.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Michael, for voting. It's fun to see what people like.

Both superb Ginnie, but this one probably has more impact with its isolation - think you made the right choice.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, George, for your vote of confidence!
Both good. I'd go for the context version for the added stonework.
Ginnie Hart: It's always fun to see what people choose and for what reason, Graeme. Thanks! smile
Nice take on the theme, Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.
what a beautiful little carving
Ginnie Hart: I thought so, too, Sarah. Thank you.
They are both wonderful, although this one has a bit of mystery to it out of context. You have a great eye for detail Ginnie :^)
Ginnie Hart: You're most kind, Doug. Thanks for your vote of confidence.

Ginnie Hart: Enjoy it while you have the chance, Luiza. Astrid and I have decided to go back every year, especially for the mussels. smile Thanks.
