Have a rest and a gossip before the lunch peak...
Ginnie Hart: HA! Exactly, Ray. smile
I like it. Terrific black and white processing gave excellent tones.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Michael.
Suddenly, I'm very hungry.
Ginnie Hart: And me, too, Michael, after seeing your blog! grin

and glasses for a refreshing drink! A fine b&w photo!
Ginnie Hart: Everything you need, Philine! It so happens that the café wasn't open for buisness right then but the owner allowed us to come in to look around.

These are just common everyday things but you've made them look so attractive Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir. Sometimes it's the ordinary that moves us most.

Whenever I see salt I think of dear old Stanley Moore Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHA! Stanley Moore will never live himself down, Chad. grin

It all looks very traditional; from a time when life seemed to be less hassle.
Ginnie Hart: I like that, Alan. It really could be anywhere!

Beautiful black and white processing. smile

This reminds me of my waitressing days, refilling the salts and peppers. A homey and lovely image, focused on simple, pleasureful things.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Sister. I remember having to fill shakers like this, too. Happy memories about simple times, yes!
Lovely, Ginnie. They look so much more interesting in your shot than when you take them for granted on the table.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Pauline. That's very kind of you.
So ordinary and yet made special - very nice Ginnie! smile
Ginnie Hart: Sometimes it's the very ordinary stuff that moves us most, Martin. Strange how that can be.... Thanks.
I agree with Chris, a good shot from not very much.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.

Expecting a lot of guests smile A good idea to do shiny ware in b&w.
Ginnie Hart: And to think that café wasn't even open...but the owner let us come in to look. smile Thanks, Louis.
Superb image in B&W Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Many thanks, Richard.

Perfect visual in black and white. Interesting the variety of shaker sizes.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Rob, and yes. It was an eclectic sort of place. smile

I like the treatment Ginny
Ginnie Hart: Many thanks, Anne.
salt and pepper in black and white grin very nice Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Ayush. smile Thanks.
... and sugar? ;p
The big ones must be sugar. He he.

Did you try their famous stew?
Ginnie Hart: Or maybe the big ones are for bigger people or tables, LC? grin And, no, I didn't try anything because they weren't open yet for eating. We snuck in while the owner was bringing in supplies. smile
nice.....
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Preyi.
Great composition and tones in this B&W, Ginnie. I just remembered that my mother collected salt & pepper shakers. She had them in every shape & colour you could imagine.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Beverly. And yes, if you have a great way to display them, there are incredible sets out there. A nice collectible. Did you inherit them?
I like your glass and light work Ginnie. Good one
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Janet.

Nicely done, Ginnie. Chrome caps work especially well in the B & W.
Ginnie Hart: Many thanks, Jennie. Glad I did the right thing. smile

Ginnie Hart: HA! I once knew someone like that, Rian. grin

Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Robin. This was in that café where Catherine wanted us to eat lunch but it wasn't open for eating...just for us to wander through. Memories. smile
