Woof.  Woof.  Where's the woof?

From the weaving room at the 800-yr-old Marksburg Castle in Braubach, Germany.

Did you get a chance to weave anything, Ginnie?? tongue
Ginnie Hart: HA! They wouldn't let us touch anything with a 10-ft pole, I'm sure, Emily. smile

The thread looks like hemp string, Ginnie...are they making Smoking Jackets?

[grin]
Ginnie Hart: I'm guessing anything over 800 years would look like hemp, Ray?? grin

What a beautiful light here. Love the detail here.
I remember that the Castle had a lot of these goodies. A wonderful place for a photo-hunt...
Ginnie Hart: It was one of the best excursions of our cruise, MLMA. And to think the castle is that old! Hartstikke bedankt.
great old feel smile
Ginnie Hart: Yes, Joshi. Thanks.
This is beautiful - terrific light - crisp in all the right places, grainy in all the right places. You're a master at these, Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: And you are such a great encourager, Elizabeth. Thank you!
We have weft here so I guess you are bereft of weft smile
Ginnie Hart: I have just learned a new word today, Bill (from Cherry, too). Of course you English would know! smile

A fine shot full of detail Ginnie. I expect some people spent their lives crouched over these things
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Chris, and I'm sure you're right. I have a niece who would give an arm and a leg for this loom...and would add the woof/weft very quickly!

Oh...I just love old weaving looms. It's such a beautiful meditative art!!
Ginnie Hart: I do, too, Marcie. I have a niece (Ruth's daughter) who would LOVE to get her hands on this loom. Thanks.

You're cute. I say this all the time whenever James and I read a book with doggies. Beautiful photo. The aged effect is quite fitting.
Ginnie Hart: Woof Woof sounds so much better than Weft Weft, my new word for the day. HA! Thanks, Sister. I can just hear you and James reading together. smile
Generally I like not at all processings sepia but there it's perfect because it suits completely on the well revealed subject.
Ginnie Hart: You're most kind to say so, Marie. Merci.

I hope you are planning on making a book featuring these wonderful images from your trip!!!
Ginnie Hart: Well, no, I wasn't, Sue, but that would be an idea, wouldn't it! Right now it's all on my other blog. In fact, I just finished Day 6 in Rothenburg. smile

Good old crafts...Very nice photo Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Juan Carlos. Gotta love the old stuff!
I can imagine how the hypnotic sound it made when in full action. Your image here has such a wonderful timeless look, Ginnie; just perfect for the subject.
Ginnie Hart: Oh, yes, Beverly. I can imagine the sound, too. smile Thanks.
A nice still life,Ginnie, my mum and dad met when they worked in a mill.
