Love it!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Ray. smile
Such interesting composition and use of color! Something so simple, presented in a dynamic way. I need to continue my journey over at your blog... I CAN'T believe all you did in a short time and the scenery... just blows me away. (and the little things like this little fellow)
Ginnie Hart: Very kind of you, Margaret! Our river cruise was totally packed to the gills with all kinds of stuff. When I go back over the images and find gems like this, I pounce on them, as you can imagine. Thank you!
So interesting! Love the colors too!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Robin. I saw a lot of so-called poverty and decay in this city, but it was not lacking for color, which seemed to cheer it up!
Great image Ginnie... i am sure that it was quite the surprise to find this strange fellow poking his eye out of the wall at yougrin....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Peter. I've never seen anything like it in all my years! smile

I think somebody had fun here, creating this little statue into the wall.....
Amazing what you see when you pay attention smile
Great composition and colours.
Ginnie Hart: I just stood there and stared when I saw it. I've never seen anything like it. HA! Fun, indeed. Bedankt, MLMA.
Thought this is a really great shot - wonderful find... but he's more than a little creepy!
Ginnie Hart: Actually, Elizabeth, every time I see it I still think he's sitting on the can, doing his business! HA! grin
Cool. Looks very modern.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Michael. Like someone has a good sense of humnor! smile

How bizarre Ginnie, there must be a story behind this
Ginnie Hart: Yes, Chris, I'm sure. Wouldn't you love to know it!
A City so full of interest, so many different historic influences
Ginnie Hart: Yes, Martin, and thanks. And we only saw the tip of the iceberg!

Well blow me, this look a bit mysterious Ginnie. I can't imagine what the three breasted creature could be.
Ginnie Hart: HA! So true, Chad. It does make you wonder. smile
OMG is that Peeping Thomasina?
What the hell is going on in BRAtislava?
I think they will outperform Amsterdam one day! ;p
Ginnie Hart: LOL, LC. A little bit of humor goes a long way in a place like Bratislava, trust me. smile

A little frightening this small character who does not very tempt to knock at the door.
Nice textures and colors
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Marie. It does make you wonder, doesn't it! smile Merci.

Little creepy and a little like our federal opposition leader Tony Abbott
Ginnie Hart: HA! You're not the first who's thought this fella looks a bit creepy, Brian. Don't you wonder what his story is?! smile
Someone has a creative bent and I bet they didn't ever think it would be seen by so many people from around the world.
Ginnie Hart: So true, Mary. I haven't even tried to see if I could find him on the internet!

Ha! Good title! It does looks like that very much. he's ...ummmm.. quite big in certain places, isn't he? wink
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHA! Yes, Alan. Well-endowed. grin

This sculptor must have used James for a model. He looks just like him when he plays hide and seek. smile
Ginnie Hart: HA! Maybe so, Ruth! I'll think of that whenever I see this. smile

That's my question too!
Great find
Nice angle, expression, colorssmile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, dear Helys.
For some reason, Ginnie, when I look at your brilliant shot of this strange figure it brings to mind the sort of illustration that might appear in the pages of National Geographical magazine.
Ginnie Hart: You are just way too generous, Beverly, but...thank you anyway! smile
Weird and wonderful Ginnie. I expect that has stopped a lot of people in their tracks
Ginnie Hart: Yes, Janet, I'm sure you're right! smile

You've really surpassed your self Ginnie - a superb minimalistic still life.

And my apologies for the long absence...but you know why...and thank you so much.
Ginnie Hart: Yes, I know why, George, and am still rooting for you all the way. Thank you for taking the time to visit here again!

Well, if in the dark you press the wrong appendage, the little ogre will leave you with a wet hand?

An excellent composition.
Ginnie Hart: HA! Very graphically said, Louis. smile Thank you.
Who's there? Always a good question.
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, John. Always important to know these things. smile
