Wonderful capture Ginnie! These architect shots are works of art and very well captured smile
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Frances. We just don't see things like this every day in America, do we!
The only thing to do is watch back...
Ginnie Hart: Well said, Larry! smile
Love the tone and texture!
Ginnie Hart: Many thanks, Robin.

He is well wedged in, Ginnie, so unlikely to be able to inflict damage...whatever he might be thinking.
Ginnie Hart: That's really reassuring, Ray. Thanks! smile
Great image! But I kinda hope he's not my big brother... or yours! smile
Ginnie Hart: HA! Thanks, Elizabeth. Have no fears. I know he's not mine. smile
He sure is! ... >> great textures!
Ginnie Hart: Many thanks, Jacquelyn.

He's definitely looking straight at us and doesn't seem too happy about it Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: I have a feeling I get that look from a lot of people, Chris. HA! smile

Not a happy man, Ginnie, nor is his little brother on his helmet
Ginnie Hart: Lots of brothers watching us, Lisl?!

I love the textures. He does not look to happy, maybe he does not like what he sees.....
Great shot, always pays off to look up, every once in a while.
Ginnie Hart: If he's looking at me, I'm guessing I've scared the bejesus out of him. HA! He shouldn't have looked down while I was looking up. smile
prise de tête smile
Ginnie Hart: Yes, Keyouest. smile Merci.

Douce journée de Mercredi
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Emma. Come to think of it, I thought I recognized him. grin

an interesting figure with two faces!
Ginnie Hart: Mores faces to spy on us, Philine??!! smile
Well he could give me a hand with the wedding today.
Ginnie Hart: HA! Good one, Mick. smile Lots of success!

Imagine having a brother like that Ginnie...terrifying. He'd be a right misery and always pointing out what you are doing wrong.
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Chad. Can you imagine someone on top of your head screaming at you all day long! HA!
Old Big Brother, he's been there for centuries...
Ginnie Hart: And none the wiser, Juan Carlos, I'm quite sure!

In French, we could title your image so: "raise a golden bridge". Superb!
Ginnie Hart: Awww. I like that, Marie. Merci.

Love these little architectural details you find and focus on!
Ginnie Hart: I must have been an architect in a past life, Marcie. smile Thanks.

Love the architectural decay, but like Grandpa Reuben, he's looking at me. :|

smile
Ginnie Hart: I know, Ruth. The eyes are always following us, no matter where we go! (sigh)
  • Helys

Great eyes!
Nice details of architecture
Ginnie Hart: Many kind thanks, Helys.
An intimidating welcome, I wonder what the entrance was to? A fine shot Ginnie, as ever! smile
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Martin. To be honest, I have no clue whatsoever what the entrance was to. HA!
Looks like a hologram.
Ginnie Hart: That would be VERY scary, Michael. smile

I think he is about to sneeze. Love the 'gold bricks'.
Ginnie Hart: HA! Let's get the hell out of Dodge, then, Mary! smile
He looks as though he has seen it all before. Nice image.
Ginnie Hart: I'm sure you're right, John! Thanks.

Great processing and terrific capture. Don't worry the time will come when tiny cameras are placed in the eyes. It's amazing how much of our cities are covered by cameras.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Aussie...and so true. So true! UGH!

The stone that keeps the arch (and the building) together. You can see in his expression that he has it tight there.
Ginnie Hart: Hew can't take the stress anymore, Louis, for sure! smile
It would be interesting to know who it as actually supposed to represent.
Ginnie Hart: I agree, Brian! smile
It almost seems as if the brickwork has been sprayed with gold, Ginnie. It really would be something if there were actually a tiny camera hidden in his open mouth.
Ginnie Hart: It's fun to image all of it, Beverly, isn't it! UGH.

I love the colours and textures, lovely capture Ginnie smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Linda!
Did you know I'm obsessed with keystones?!


Big Brother looks rather sad...
Isn't this the kinda face you will see when you accidentally ate his cake without saving him one. grin
Ginnie Hart: No, LC, I did not know. So glad I could oblige. smile And yes, you don't want to make him anger if you can help it.
Excellent capture Ginnie! I love the tones.
Ginnie Hart: Many thanks, Richard.
He looks a bit squashed by those stones Ginnie smile
Ginnie Hart: He's between a rock and a hard place, Bill! grin
You may call him Big Brother, but looks happy in his work. And slightly taken aback at the sights he is seeing these days!
Ginnie Hart: I'm sure he's eternally happy, Sheila. HA!
He looks worried. Nice shot.
Ginnie Hart: I think he has looked that way since forever, Dave. HA! Thanks.

I think he is looking a little perplexed as those bricks squeeze in
Ginnie Hart: He's between a rock and a hard place, Anne. smile

Haahah... better than some CCTV camera camera, that's for sure. I like the stonework.
Ginnie Hart: Yes, indeed, Alan. It's fun, isn't it! smile

No, my daughter is watching Big Brother here - I often worry it will rot her brain though smile

Once again, lovely work Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: How old is your daughter by now, Brian? And is she still photographing with you?? So many questions....

Thanks!

Strange the common threads that run through sculpture, cos this guy looks just like each of the river gods, carved on the bridges over the River Liffey in Dublin.
Ginnie Hart: I saw many of these guys while in Dublin the last couple of days, George, so I know what you mean! Common threads, indeed.

Ginnie Hart: Kinda makes you wonder, Rian, doesn't it! Thanks.
