It's Monday

 

Who cares if you it looks like cr*p...as long as it works. 

At the De Geulhemermolen B&B/hotel in Berg en Terblijt, NL,

gears for a lock.

Really interesting shot especially in b&w
Ginnie Hart: It was an interesting place, Hollie, so in that regard, I'd have to agree. smile

I murmur something like this as I catch a glimpse of myself in the mirror while drying off after a shower, Ginnie...
Ginnie Hart: It's probably the curse of Monday mornings everwhere, Ray! smile
I often feel that way on a Monday... my consolation is 1/2 my patients are blind! smile HA! Just kidding!
Ginnie Hart: LOL, Elizabeth. grin That's way too funny. HAHAHAHAHA.

It seems like that is the issue in many companies and the management wonders why the costumers are running away, screaming......
Great close-up, and LOL @ Elizabeth....
Ginnie Hart: Good point, MLMA. I also thought of all those who have jobs in a certain field, like car mechanics, whose own car runs like cr*p. (sigh) And yes, LOL at Elizabeth. smile
Looks like some old type of old cog
Ginnie Hart: Pretty old, I'm sure, Shane, and still doing the job it was made for--to open and close the river's lock.

In all its cobwebby splendour, Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: It quite surprised me, Lisl, to be honest, since it's still in use. I guess the cobwebs don't get in the way! smile

Am I right in thinking this machinery doesn't get a lot of use these days Ginnie?
Ginnie Hart: We heard the rushing river outside our bedroom window all night, Chris, the perfect background for our sweet sleep. I'm sure the lock is used from time to time but one does wonder how often. The gears seemed to be well-greased.

Some times I feel like crap but I go to work on Mondays lol
Ginnie Hart: I think that's basically the rule of thumb, Adrian! smile

Oh Ginnie, I hope you are well! I hope there is more artistic treatment than reality! Let's be looking forward!
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHA! I am quite well, Philine. But sometimes I have to come back down to earth and reality. grin
Interesting mecanic shot Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Don't ask me why it caught my eye, Roland! grin

Did you see on tv the tower in Frankfurt which was blown to bits in the weekend? Sorry, your photo reminds me a bit of that event.
Ginnie Hart: No, Philine, I didn't see it. I just read that it was demolished with explosives intentionally. Hmmmm.

Good b/w, Ginnie. That reminds us: Everything is fading.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, HF, and yes, you're right!

Ah... now I had guessed what this was before I saw your comment. It has had years of use but will carry on giving years of service provided it gets some grease occasionally. The spiders seem to like it any case.
Ginnie Hart: It did seem to be well-greased, Alan...and the spiders didn't care a whit! smile

Who cares as long as its photogenetic Ginnie, and this really looks good. Black Monday is coming together nicely.
Ginnie Hart: Just for you, Chad! Now if only you could get me to add 'Black' to my title. smile
Thought this was from a lock, Ginnie - great in B&W! smile
Ginnie Hart: Some of you really know, Martin, and that makes it fun. Thank you.
Le traitement accentue encore l'effet ancien de ce beau rouage.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Marie. I especially liked that you could still see the grease, in spite of all the cobwebs. smile
I look like c**p,and don't work.....smile
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHA! I'm sure many would disagree with the former, Frank. grin
Still got it! wink
Just need a little bit of TLC.

>Have you ever been to the Iona Abbey?

No, not yet. wink
But I've been to Isle of Bute.
It's a lovely place.

You should go to Shetland one day to see their famous brochs.
Ginnie Hart: There are so many places I want to see in my lifetime, LC. So many places, so little time!
Productivity decreases substantially in Mondays
Ginnie Hart: So I've heard, JC!

Ginnie Hart: Many thanks, Preyi. It's good to see you again!
Fantastic shotsmile Greetings
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Zielona, and Happy New Year!
nice one Ginnie...As long as its treeated well is fine by me..
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Ronky. You can tell that it's well-greased and perhaps that's all that matters here!
A great image, well composed. I would like to see more from that location...
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Larry. The first 4 collages of this post are of this B&B:

Let's be honest all that gunge is very photographic.
Ginnie Hart: I thought so, too, Brian, obviously. smile Thanks.

crap is part of life's rich tapestry
Ginnie Hart: Yes, Richard. You're right!
I agree, but this does look derelict.
Ginnie Hart: Derelict, Sheila, but well-greased. smile
If it ain't bust......
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Bill. HA!
Quite eye catching Ginnie! I like your treatment.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Richard.

Beautiful, or useful, right? smile
Ginnie Hart: As someone else said, function over form, Ruth. And well-greased. smile
A bit past its best!
Ginnie Hart: But still working, Tom! smile

Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Oscar.
Looks as though someone needs to do some housework!
Ginnie Hart: But just like with dust, Sarah, it'll all be back the next day!!!! sad

It looks a little tired... But as you say, as long as it works ;-)
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Cherry. It kinda nails how many feel on Mondays, right?! smile
So perfect for b&w!!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Robin. smile
All I can say is "Holy Crap." ; )
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHA! Good one, Jacquelyn. grin
That is great. I love old machinery.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Michael. I do, too. smile I like to see how things work.
it does look like a piece of crap Ginnie... but it also gave you a great image....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: You know how crap and photo-ops go hand-in-hand, Peter! smile Thanks.
i could not make out what it is, looks like one massive gear. hope the week is looking up for you
Ginnie Hart: It's a gear system for a small river's lock, Ayush. Still working, too. smile
This reminds me of some equipment you might see in a neglected workshop. You've got an amazing eye for the unusual, Ginnie, and the ability to show it off in the best way.
Ginnie Hart: You're most kind, as always, Beverly. Isn't it weird how some things catch our eye!

She has lived, now it sits! can it will be in a museum!
The black and white suits him well, but beyond mourn it;-))
Ginnie Hart: The thing is, Pat, it's still working and put to good use...with plenty of grease to keep it a smooth operation. smile Merci.
