No harm in being a little "messy" this weekend, right?!

"When I grow up, bands are going to play for me"
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Ray. The way he hung around here, I 'spect his mommy or daddy played in the band.
Wonderful shot - love the selective coloring! I'll be in Phoenix with Diana - always the possibility of things getting a little "messy"!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Elizabeth. Everything doesn't have to be perfect for a great weekend! Enjoy it.

Dreams are made to come true one day....
Great shot, I wonder if his daddy was playing in the band.
Like Ray's comment smile
Ginnie Hart: Gotta start them young, I say, whether for sports or for music! For how he hung aroubd the bandstand, I have a feeling someone he knew was definitely in the band. They looked useed to him. smile
Very nicely done.
Ginnie Hart: Many thanks, Michael.
he's a cool little Messsi Ginnie... love the treatment....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Peter. Couldn't resist this one. smile

a fine selective colouring - and a nice observation! The boy may be sorry that Messi didn't become footballer of the year!
Ginnie Hart: Bedankt, Philine. But at least he's in a great TV commercial that I often see on CNN Int'l. smile

Nicely taken Ginnie. I wonder why Luxembourg has an army?
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Chris, and good question!
Perhaps he's deciding whether he wants to be an overpaid footballer or an underpaid musician.
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Sheila. I have a feeling his mommy or daddy was on that stage playing.
...all messis are vey small, Ginnie grin
Ginnie Hart: HA! Good one, JC. smile

A rather nice image and the selective colour (something I'm generally not keen on ) works really well.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Richard. I know it's not everyone's cuppa tea but sometimes I just can't resist. smile
Without a doubt the best player in the world, despite the huge fee just paid for Gareth Bale. Great picture Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: You obviously know more than I do, Bill, but I do like the TV commercial of him on the airplane with Kobe Bryant that I often see on CNN Int'l:

Every boy wants to be Messi, hopefully they will soon want to be Ozil Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: HA! So I just Googled Ozil. I'm sure I'll start seeing his name on shirts any minute now, Chad. :
When he grows up he will photograph bands.
Ginnie Hart: HA! Good one, Mick. smile
A great capture Ginnie! You do have an eye for these shots smile
Ginnie Hart: Most kind of you, Martin. Thanks.
Excellent work Ginnie, bravo !
Ginnie Hart: Many thanks, Marie!
Lovely shot, Ginnie. The colouring is great.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Pauline. Not everyone likes "colouring" but I still am quite the kid at heart. smile

One day I will be Messi, but his mother reckoned he is already a bit messy.

Please don't restrict my messiness to the weekend only.
Ginnie Hart: For you, Louis, you can be Messi any time you want! grin

Kid's curiosity is one of the best things in the world to watch and connect with. Well done.

I'm enjoying the comments as much as the photo. smile
Ginnie Hart: Awww. Thanks, Ruth. It's fun, isn't it. smile
Cute and such a "Ginnie" capture!
Ginnie Hart: It was fun to see, Robin. smile Thanks.
Excellent with the selective colouring. Well spotted Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Many thanks, Richard. Merci.
Missy, don't ya mess with Lil Messi! wink
He was trying to conduct.

>And did I see a harp? Yes (you must have remembered I was just in Dublin!).

I can't wait to see your holiday photos.
Did their Irish lilt make you feel homesick?
Irish accent sounds kinda "American" to me sometimes. He he...
Ginnie Hart: How could I have forgotten you, too, were just in Dublin! Duh. I LOVED their lilt, as you say. Not too American to me but maybe from the British English side, yes? Anyway, it was a great time! Thanks.
I like your treatment Ginnie. He is the star of the show
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Janet. He definitely was the star for me. smile

I'd love to be able to read music. Let's hope the kid does, too, and does not leave it until his later years. I expect to get messy this weekend smile
Ginnie Hart: If his mommy or daddy is in the band, Alan, the chances are good that he, too, will read music eventually, if not already. In the meantime, enjoy your messy weekend. smile

Aww, great capture, love the way he is just hanging out, Lovely Ginnie smile
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Linda. He was hanging out the entire time we were there, which is why I 'spect his mommy or daddy played in the band. smile
Striking shot. Nice processing.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Dave.

Such fun - what you do - with your selective coloring. This one pops!!!
Ginnie Hart: You could say I'm a glutton for selective coloring, Marcie, whenever I can get away with it. smile Thanks.

The music certainly seems to have caught his attention
Ginnie Hart: Either that or he's staying near his mommy or daddy? smile
little scamp!!!!
Ginnie Hart: HA! Gotta love it, Dennis. smile
Messy is fun...
Ginnie Hart: Sometimes, Larry, YES! smile
Loving it Ginnie, it says so much.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Sally! smile
cute and looks like an energetic boy smile
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Joshi, and, yes. He was all over the place. smile
Great play on words, Ginnie, and wonderful job on the selective colouring. This tyke obviously has an ear for military music. Another Sousa in the making?
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Beverly. Definitely a little Sousa in the making...after his Messi years are done?! smile
