Great B&W, amazing weather-vane. Sail West would bring us in America, from our POV...
The tour in Bristol was wonderful, we saw a lot of 'goodies'.
Ginnie Hart: I remember how excited Lisl was for us to see this one in particular, MLMA. It sure is a beauty, just like Bristol. Bedankt.

And just look at all that modern architecture they've plonked it on!
Ginnie Hart: I know, Chris, but somehow that was part of it's beauty?!
What a wonderful shot Ginnie!

Oh, and you are likely to have been happy to discover this weathervane - I know you hobby!
Ginnie Hart: Oh, yes, Philine. Lisl was so excited to have me find this...which I did, with her help. In fact, she´s the one who just told me its name, which I have now added to my text.

Well seen Ginnie - I always think of you when I see a weather vane!
Ginnie Hart: That´s special, Mike. Isn´t it fun when we think of each other by what we see!

My high flying will start next Wednesday when I head up to Scotland; just counting down the days. I like the traditional cock against the new buildings.
Ginnie Hart: Wednesday will be here before you know it, Alan. I´d love to fly-high to Scotland! Thanks.

The Bristol Barque vane is superb Ginnie! Well spotted and captured.

She seems to continually go round the world. How lucky.

Interesting shapes in this ginnie
Ginnie Hart: I thought so, too, Sarah.
Good b/w, Ginnie, she's heading west ok.
Ginnie Hart: I´m glad you´re not directionally-challenged, Frank, unlike Peter. smile
I like all the shapes, the Barque adds that finishing touch
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Martin, and I agree.

An excellent composition in a perfect bw
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, dear Marie.
What is in the building Ginne, is it a museum?
Ginnie Hart: I have no clue whatsoever, Scotia (though perhaps Lisl does?). All I cared about was the weathervane. HA!
