Dobbin looks happy to be above ground, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: I think we all are, Ray! smile
That is what I need. A weather vane. Cool shot, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: I am such a glutton for weathervanes, Michael. This is a week of different ones while out-n-about. Thanks.
Time to get your hands back on the plow Ginnie... i love the silhouette and your treatment with the trees....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: I love the Dutch weathervanes, Peter! Thank you.
Indeed - off we go! smile
Except, of course, those of you who have earned the right to stay home!! Love the treatment on this wonderful image!
Ginnie Hart: Even though I'm retired and Astrid now has Mondays off, we still remember the rest of you who have to get up and go on this day. Have a great one, Elizabeth! Thanks.

These weather-vanes get nicer and nicer. I so love your presentation, with the different layers and the border.
Today I stay at home and tomorrow I go back to the salt mines wink.....
Ginnie Hart: You know I go crazy over your Dutch weathervanes, MLMA. I can't get enough of them. Bedankt. And enjoy your day off.

Request to work? A Monday sign, Ginnie!

Now there's a sight that makes me think of days that I've only ever seen on grainy films. How would we feed the world now if we had to rely on the horse and plough still?
Ginnie Hart: Good question, Alan!!!

Vraiment très jolie cette "girouette".
Ginnie Hart: Merci, dear Marie. I LOVE these Dutch weathervanes! smile
Aha! Another collector of "different" wind vanes. They do come in the most amazing styles - you just have to look for them.
Ginnie Hart: We see them out in the Dutch polder all the time, Sheila, so I grab them as they come. This week I'll show 3 of them. I LOVE them! smile Thanks.
You've made a great find unique with your fine treatment, Ginnie! smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Martin. I'm a sucker for these vanes! smile
Yes, indeed. The power was out this morning so it has been a mixed up morning as for routine but I will get my feet out the door soon. Back to the grindstone.
Ginnie Hart: Man! You guys have really had the winter. Unbelievable! Hopefully things will calm down soon, Mary.

Lucky that we use salt pans. You see daylight all the time. Excellent picture and conversion ... as always smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.
Get behind the plough! How I used to love Mondays...Oh,wait a minute! NO !
Ginnie Hart: HA! The least favorite day of the week for almost everyone, Frank...before retirement, that is.
I join you in your love of weather vanes, Ginnie. There are some great ones about. This one reminds you of past times in the farming world, it's lovely.
Ginnie Hart: I can't get enough of them, Pauline, and they are everywhere out in the Dutch polder. The farmers depend on them. You'll see some more of them this week from me. smile
The perfect choice for back-to-work Monday, Ginnie. Excellent presentation, too.
Ginnie Hart: It made sense to me, Beverly. smile Thanks.
Such a beautiful weather vane!
Ploughing with a handsome draught horse.
Ginnie Hart: Exactky, LC. Leave it to the Dutch! smile Thanks.
So distinctive Ginnie..
Ginnie Hart: I thought so, too, Ronky.
No work for me, 10 years retired for good come July when I will be 70.This is a great find for one of your favourite subjects.
Ginnie Hart: I'm retired, too, Brian, and Astrid has Mondays off...but I still remember all the others who have to go to work! And yes, this is definitely one of my favorite subjects.
I love weather vanes, this is a nice one
Ginnie Hart: I have a week of them (3) this week, John. The Dutch have good ones! smile Thanks.

Did you say that Ginnie, I thought you were United Stateian not Russian.
Ginnie Hart: It's kinda like us talking about the stork delivering bacbies to us in America and no one has ever seen a stork?! smile

You like these don't you, Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Uhhhhhhhh...you could say I'm a glutton for them, Richard, and you'd be getting close to the truth. grin
So loving the post processing and how you made the tree branches look like a painting! Wonderful!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, dear Robin. You know me and weathervanes! smile
this is a very interesting looking wind vane and an innovative idea to capture this silhouette, very effective Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Many thanks, Ayush. I LOVE the Dutch weathervanes, almost everywhere we go!
