This is wonderful weather-vane.
Somebody had fun making this one.
Love the crop you made, with the roof top. Wonderful POV.
A great one for the Boat Friday.
Ginnie Hart: Plain and simple, MLMA. It doesn't take much to make a weathervane! smile
That is a very clever take on Boat Friday.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Michael. Sometimes it doesn't take much! smile
Great description Ginnie... storms run through it too...
great framing and processing....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: I makes you wonder how it can even be a weathervane, Peter! Can it actually blow in the wind? smile
i like this wire form. works well in b/w.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Ayush. These weathervanes are so fun to find for me. smile

This is a special weather- vane -whenever I see a weather-vane, I think of you!
Ginnie Hart: How sweet, Philine. They're one of my happiest treasures. smile

A nicely sculpted piece of metal Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: I thought so, too, Chris. But how does the wind catch it????

It is maybe the chimney of somebody who dreams about sea and about escape. Attractive back light
Ginnie Hart: Oh yes, Marie. This town is right near the water, so boats are everywhere! smile

Looks like how I used to draw boats about 60+ years ago. Actually, it's probably how I would still draw them wink It's beautiful.
Ginnie Hart: HA! I like that thought, Alan. smile

Not a lot for the wind to catherine upon but an elegant looking weather vane all the same.
Ginnie Hart: It tickles me every time I see it, Mike, because I can't imagine how it works. HA! Thanks.
Wow, they even made the effort to install some S-shaped iron bars to "make waves"?!
Ginnie Hart: Yes, they did, LC. I'm so glad you noticed. smile
This delightful homemade weather-vane is one of a kind, Ginnie. A wonderful example to add to your collection.
Ginnie Hart: You can see why I love them so much, Beverly! smile
I can imagine you jumping up and down with joy when you saw this Ginnie smile
Ginnie Hart: Oh, yes, Bill. It doesn't tske much. smile
Perfect for your collection!
Ginnie Hart: I'm like a little girl in the candy store, Robin. smile

Maybe it is not a weather vane. Or it was once, when it had sail cloth in those sail frames. Makes a great picture, nonetheless.
Ginnie Hart: It may not be a weathervane, Louis, because how in the world can the wind catch it! HA!

what a cool weathervane, Ginnie! I actually don't see many of this in the city, and I am not sure why.

AND what a unique image to pick for boat friday! grin
Ginnie Hart: I love the Dutch weathervanes, Emily. I can never to too many of them! smile Thanks.
You certainly find strange weather vanes Ginnie, this looks as though it was made from a couple of bent coat hangers smile
Ginnie Hart: LOL, Brian. You may be right. grin
Took me a while to find the boat--another senior moment...
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHA! You're way too funny, Larry. grin
Delightfully amateur,euro ah, it seems
Ginnie Hart: Sometimes less is more, Tom?!? smile
Very unusual roof decoration but matches the Netherlands.
Ginnie Hart: As I often say, just leave it to the Dutch. smile
