They do say that, Ginnie...but that leads to a beige world.

The world you have captured is much more colourful.
Ginnie Hart: Black and white and red all over! smile This whole thing was pretty colorful, as I recall, Ray.
This is a really fantastic candid, Ginnie!!!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Elizabeth. I tried to grab it when he wasn't looking!
That is very nice.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Michael.
I always thought you had to save first > then spend it. ; )
Ginnie Hart: Don't they say you have to spend money to make money??? I guess there's truth in that, too, Jacquelyn?

He has spent all his energy saving the notion that this might be a nice place to visit Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: And how right he was, Chris! I'll never forget it. smile

Some letters look funny, for example the Curry Club ...! Are you the bloody -red murderer by selective colouring?
Ginnie Hart: Oh, yes, Philine. Words like "bloke," too. And yes, you can call me the bloody-red murderer when it come to selective coloring. I'll wear that moniker with pride. smile

This is a very fine pictures of any every-day scene in Bristol. Well done, Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Lisl. It was too good to not capture (when he wasn't looking up).

I remember you asking if you could take the picture, and no he did not have to look at you smile
A great outcome and love the selective colouring.
Graffiti is so fascinating.
Ginnie Hart: I forgot that I did ask him, MLMA. He did seem to be in his own world around all that graffiti. Once I got home I spent some time looking more carefully at what it all said. smile

An everyday sight in most cities, great selective colouring. I wish I had money to spend. smile
Ginnie Hart: Graffit is everywhere and is here to stay, I hope, Tracy. It's its own special artform, for sure.

And money to spend? My sense is you have way more than most!
Don't spend and save even more grin
Ginnie Hart: Once we figured out how much we need to save, Bill, we've made sure we take the time to spend...in case we don't live forever! smile

A late runner in the Commonwealth Games Men's road race? Ah no.. can't be.. it;s sunny smile Good to see education has not been wasted on the painters.
Ginnie Hart: I think there's definitely a lot of promise here, Alan. grin

Well when it is all gone I guess you have to save to get more to spend. Makes a nice urban portrait.
Ginnie Hart: If you don't spend what you save, what are you saving it for, right, Mike?! Thanks.
Thanks to Banksy, Bristol's street "art" is blooming! He he... Did you visit Bristol City Museum and Art Gallery? I saw his artwork there.
Ginnie Hart: No, LC, we didn't go to the museum or art gallery but we DID see a true Banksy, which is coming up soon. smile
Beautiful work Ginnie. I like this photo.
Ginnie Hart: Many kind thanks, Marie.

That is clever spot colour Ginnie, and hardly noticeable.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir. You can fool some of the people some of the time....
Have you been taking lessons from Trimbo Ginnie,to buy a 60mm lens for the little fuji that is the question.Spend or save.
Ginnie Hart: HA! The thing I heard years ago, Mick, was "save as though you'll live forever but spend as though you'll die tomorrow." Talk about a good balance and having to figure it out. I'm sure you'll do the right thing.

Une désaturation extra !
Bonne journée
JP
Ginnie Hart: I love doing this, JP. smile
Contemplating...........spending his last €'s grin
Great candid Ginnie, with the splash of colour!
Ginnie Hart: We all have those days, I'm sure, Martin. Even with a little splash of color thrown in! smile
Love the art work, Ginnie. He looks lost in his own little world.
Ginnie Hart: Definitely in his own little world, Pauline. smile

When the "Curry Club" will open; Ginnie? ;-)
Street art is not all art.
Ginnie Hart: HA! I'd like to join the Curry Club, HF. But...don´t you think SOME street art IS art??!!
Superb candid image Ginni. I was wondering if it was the main door for a night club?
Ginnie Hart: I have no clue whatsoever, Scotia. I have a feeling it was the back door of somewhere, to be honest, since we were on a dirt frontage road on our way to the Bristol bridge. Hmmm. Good question regardless.
Someone is having a rest - but not you. Nice one, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: As they say, Mary, no rest for the weary!
So true Ginnie!
What a fabulous candid shot.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Richard.
j'adore de plus en plus les tags que je trouve que ce personnage ne s'y intéresse pas...
Ginnie Hart: Graffiti is such a wonderful art form, Angevine, isn't it! Merci.

Spend and save - must be some kind of a sale going on.
Ginnie Hart: Did someone say "Sale?" grin
Looks as if he has cycled for quite a distance and is taking a welcomed rest, Ginnie. He picked the perfect spot as a backdrop for your capture as well. Great shot!
Ginnie Hart: He did seem to pick the perfect spot, Philine...at least for MY camera. smile Bedankt.
Don't spend and save even more !
a fine shot.
Ginnie Hart: But, but, but...we want to enjoy SOME of life, Martin, right?
great shot Ginnie..
Ginnie Hart: Many thanks, Ronky.
I like the candid aspect but I really am not a lover of graffiti at all.
Ginnie Hart: I happen to be one who sees graffiti as an art form, Brian, however good or bad. Some of it is a mess...like so many oil paintings I have seen. HA!
It looks as though he has one of those plunger/detonator thingies, ready to blow the whole lot up!
Ginnie Hart: I think you have been teaching too long, Tom! grin

I would have cropped to the steps and the doorway ...lovely image though ginnie
Ginnie Hart: When I think of all the coulda-shoulda crops I almost made, Richard, it's a wonder this was up at all. But thanks for your take on it.
Good shot, Ginnie,good use of selective colour as usual.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.

A nice place to chill out during the day but perhaps not so nice at night...
Ginnie Hart: I would have to agree with your assessment, Cherry! smile
spend and save and splat!!! i love this pic, moderation in everything except graffiti i gather smile
Ginnie Hart: Some art forms seem to have no moderation whatsoever, Elaine. HA!
nice and interesting shot smile
Ginnie Hart: Lots crammed into one space, for sure, Joshi. Thanks.
Perfect for b&w and your touch of color! Love!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Robin!
