...and, who doesn't love a good sausage!

Love the drying herbs, too, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: ...and the loaf of bread up on top! smile Thanks, Ray.
Sausage making is an art Ginnie... i watched my Italian friend Bruno Cassin make sausage from fresh pork butts... he measured the spices with a hand held scale... and his product was the best that i have ever tasted....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: I do know it's an art, Peter, which I'll leave to everyone else to watch. In this case, I prefer to remain "uneducated" and just eat it at the end. grin

I love sausage, once we had the delight to taste home-made sausage in Austria.
The castle was full of these goodies. Photographer's heaven.
Great picture, love the light and treatment.
Ginnie Hart: I love sausage, too, but I'd rather not know how it's made. HA! Every room we entered had something to photograph! It really was a photographer's heaven. Hartstikke bedankt, MLMA.
Great photo Ginnie! It "feels" very old!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Elizabeth. I wonder if it's edible??? grin
I hope they aren't 800 year old sausage... ; ) It's funny with the bread on top. Good catch.
Ginnie Hart: They look like they all could be eaten on the spot, Jacquelyn, don't they. I wondered the same thing. smile Thank you.

Or you could have called this - A dedication to BP of Clentshire Ginnie. I suppose this contraption keeps rodents and cats away from the produce.
Ginnie Hart: Where were you when I needed you, Chad! A dedication to BP of Clentshire, indeed!!! smile
séchage d'une excellent photo ,belle journée
Ginnie Hart: Makes me want to go dry something myself, Keyouest. smile Merci.

Haha - three pots and some sausages for our dear stooges - you might have stayed at Marksburg Castle for some weeks, Edelmadame Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: I couldn't resist this, Philine. grin Bedankt.

I have shown this to Mr Phiilips and he is salivating Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHA! I figured someone would be salivating, Chris. smile Thanks.
i like the end product, to reasonable limit, but have only a very vague notion of what happens upstream
Ginnie Hart: HA! And please don't tell me what's in it! grin
I love sausages, but there's something macabre about the whole arrangement. It looks like someone messed up a wing chun dummy.
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHA! I guess it all depends on how you view it, Michael. smile

It is not the lunchtime and nevertheless this exhibition of sausages is very attractive and puts me the water in the mouth. Beautiful light
Ginnie Hart: Isn't it funny how images can make our mouth water, Marie. smile Merci.

Which one is the Droitwich Sausage? I like the pots and the other kitchen objects, too.
Ginnie Hart: HA! Good question, Alan. You pick. And yes, I loved seeing everything in this little nook!
Ah sausages, one of the best foods known to mankind, so varied but so tasty.
Ginnie Hart: HA! Spoken like a true Englishman, Martin. grin

Amazing how very primitive and simple life was then. What a lovely display!
Ginnie Hart: I wonder if they spent all their time surviving, Marcie? Thanks.
Excellent shot, so well composed. i hope Bill does not leave drool on his keyboard or teethmarks on his monitor.
Ginnie Hart: LOL about Bill, Mary. Even I am drooling. smile Thanks.
I'll join Michael,Ginnie. smile
Ginnie Hart: As I told him, Frank, coming right up! smile

vegetarian!!!!
Ginnie Hart: HA! That's easy, Adrian. smile
That's a beautiful display Ginnie. I like the setting too, like they did it in the old days :^)
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Doug. It looks quite idyllic, doesn't it! smile
At first I thought this was a dream catcher! Maybe I was a little hungry grin

A great shot, Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: HA! Too funny, Martin. smile Thanks.

I hope the sausage is not 800 years ole smile. Lovely shot
Ginnie Hart: That's what someone else also said, Sarito. HA! Thanks.

Someone beat me to the line "I hope the sausages aren't 800 years old!" HA!

Nice job of isolating your subject in what was more than likely a cluttered environment.
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Sue. grin And thank you kindly.

Warmed on a bed of sauerkraut und kartoffelen. Those vats in the corner are probably used to conserve cabbage and meats, with a layer of fat on top, to seal it off.
Ginnie Hart: Now you're REALLY making me hungry, Louis!!!
Now I am hungry for bad food. wink
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHA. A little bit of sausage never hurt anyone...every once in awhile! smile
Oh, I can just taste it! Great capture!
Ginnie Hart: Me, too, Robin. smile Thanks.
DROITWURST!!!!!!!
Ginnie Hart: HA! I knew you'd eventually show up, Bill. grin
Wonderful Ginnie! You make my mouth watering...
Ginnie Hart: HA! I think we're all telling our secrets here, Richard. smile Merci.

Blimey how surreal ... sausages as decorations.
Ginnie Hart: Kinda makes you wonder what all went on in that castle, right? smile
He he... I do love currywurst!
A must have snack whenever I go to Germany.
Ginnie Hart: Oh yes. How can we resist Germany's currywurst!!!

bella luce e composizione interessante
Ginnie Hart: Many thanks for stopping by and commenting here, Saverio. Grazie.
Mmmmm. You have me drooling.
Ginnie Hart: You and a few others, Michael. smile
The Germans are great sausage makers and - eaters. Did you try a few?
Ginnie Hart: We didn't try any here at the castle, Wim (ha!) but we had several while on the ship. Very nice!

I have to agree with Ray, Ginnie. Who DOESN'T love a good sausage? Ha. To be honest, they actually look pretty yummy. Are they real?
Ginnie Hart: Ever since taking this picture, Emily, I have had the same question. I have no clue if these are real! smile But they sure are a good fake if they're not!
