photoblog image The Girl in the Window

The Girl in the Window

 

It was a scene from out of an old movie for me.

(looking up on the main street in Nijmegen, Netherlands)

 

Today is my turn at Vision and Verb, talking about how The Answer is Within You.

Trainee school-Maam...correcting the homework!

You have a great eye, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir. Since it was a Saturday, I wondered if she was doing her own homework!
Great capture!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, dear Lady.

You could get arrested
Ginnie Hart: She actually smiled at me, Adrian, so I took that as permission. smile
sounds like the title of a suspense novel. vintage could have a point there grin
Ginnie Hart: Maybe that's what I meant...a suspense novel, made into a movie. HA! And yes, I told Vintage that her smile seemed to give me permission.
Beautiful composition Ginnie... this photo is timeless... it could have been a painting from a long time ago....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: Actually, I think it was a painting it reminded me of, Peter, more than a movie. HA! Thanks. smile

What a great place to do homework or write an essay...(research paper) about, what I see from the window.
Absolute fabulous picture. I pays off to look up, every once in while smile
Ginnie Hart: She was such a good sport, flashing her smile every so often. She clearly had no problem being seen. smile Bedankt, MLMA.

This looks 19th century, Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: It felt like that to me, too, Lisl! Thanks.

If only she was wearing a pearl ear ring eh Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Chad. I have been thinking of that ever since I saw it! smile
I like the intimist side of this image
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Marie. Merci.
I wonder if dear Emily wrote 'Wuthering Heights' in such an environment.
Ginnie Hart: Hmmmm. Good question, Richard. smile

Like all snapshots of people at windows we have the element of intrigue Ginnie. Who is she, what is she doing etc etc. We never get to know the answers but we can't stop asking the questions
Ginnie Hart: So true, Chris. And so fun to make up our own stories. smile Thanks.
j'adore la teinte qui ressort bien avec le feuillet et le pull du personnage
Ginnie Hart: Thabk you, Angevine. Merci.
A great shot Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, dear Jacquelyn.
Very nice compositon shot! nice day to you Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.

This would make for such a great book cover. Some sort of mystery or unrequited love story. Beautiful and timeless!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Marcie. It did feel like a painting of sorts to me as I stared at her! And she smiled back!
I wish you a happy and creative New Year Ginnie!!!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Fabrizio. The same to you. Grazie.
I know I put Chris' wish list somewhere here.....
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHA! Good one, Bill. grin
An intriguing shot Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: It does make you wonder what she's up to, Sally, doesn't it. Thanks.

She must be very engrossed in here work; I'd be too busy people watching from the window - wondering who was the lady with the big lens smile
Ginnie Hart: Actually, Alan, she was peeking out a lot...and spotted me. She smiled in acceptance when I indicated I wanted to take her picture. What a good sport. smile
Looks like she needs to fix the condensation problem, Ginnie, Hows that for a completely boring unromantic comment? smile
Ginnie Hart: HA! Well, that's definitely one way to look at it, Frank, romantic or not. smile
Looks a nice spot to sit and work! Great shot Ginnie smile
Ginnie Hart: ...and watch the world go by, Martin! smile Thanks.

I'm not sure what I can add -- the previous comments so wonderful. I'll simply say, "Bravo!" My hat is off to you for spotting and capturing this superb, in every way, shot.
Ginnie Hart: You're very generous, Sue. Thank you!
I agree with Peter. This has the look of a valued painting; a masterwork.
Ginnie Hart: You're a sweetheart, Beverly. Thank you.
It is a very fine shot Ginnie, it seems you and she worked together on this but it is very natural for all that.
Ginnie Hart: She did see me, Brian, and nodded acceptance when I did my sign language asking for permission. HA! It was fun. smile Thanks.
All she needs is a pearl...
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Larry. smile
Nicely seen shot Ginnie, I've just ordered a Canon SX50 HS super zoom 24-1200 with surprisingly good results for that focal range after reading several reviews. From ants to the moon with crater detail. Ideal for long distance candids like this. http://www.luminous-landscape.com/reviews/cameras/canon_sx_50_review.shtml
Ginnie Hart: I have read a couple reviews, John, and am wowed! I will definitely keep this in mind (for when I'm back in the States in October), because the zoom capability is important to me. My everyday lens now is a Canon red ring 28-300. But it is obnoxious and very heavy. I know some of my sciatic issues are because of it. Be assured that I will ask you about it in the next weeks/months. It may be just exactly what the doctor ordered! Thanks for the heads-up!
Looks like the outside looking in perspective of a Vermeer painting.
Ginnie Hart: That's what it feels like to me, too, Michael!
Interesting candid, time to catch up on all the correspondence,or is she on page four of her New Year resolutions.
Ginnie Hart: All of the above, Martin, I'm sure. HA! Thanks.
Great capture with excellent framing. Have a lovely evening Ginnie. Amicalement Antoine.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Antoine. Merci.
A wonderful and intriguing intimist capture Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir!
awwww that's a beautiful picture, definitely, it's like an audrey hepburn movie... oh and 'a fantastic fear of everything' is a movie too lol
Ginnie Hart: HA! You have a great imagination, Elaine. You can make the movies! smile
A student, doing her studying and revising. Keeping warm at the same time, and using natural light. Well done that student.
Ginnie Hart: I like that, Sheila. Makes sense to me. smile Thanks.
Well spotted, Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Tom.
This reminded me of "Panic Room".
Have you seen that film?
Ginnie Hart: Yes, actually, I have seen that movie, LC, now that you mention it...from a long time ago. HA!

I wonder what she is up to...
Ginnie Hart: I was gonna say "to no good," but I don't think that's true. smile
I love this image! I can come up with nothing original - the others' have already said it! smile
Ginnie Hart: Save your energy for elsewhere, Elizabeth. HA!

Essays or love-letters I wonder? Young enough for either or both in the nicely caught study.
Ginnie Hart: Maybe both, George. I like that thought. Thanks. smile

She wont believe how she got caught by you, Ginnie wink
Ginnie Hart: She did know I was taking her picture, Arash, and smiled with approval. But I bet she has no idea how many have seen her! smile
