Ginnie Hart: I would love to hold a bunch of them in my hand, Peter. HA! That tells you something about me as a schoolkid at heart.

Looks like you even have the kitchen sink in this fine image, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: And with a pot of coffee at the ready nearby, Ray! Thanks.
I love the way they are presented Ginnie! Great capture.
Ginnie Hart: Many kind thanks, Richard.

I like your selective colouring here Ginnie. My early morning rule, which I am abiding by now, is to drink coffee first thing!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Chris. Some of our rules and rituals make up who we are day in and day out. And why not!

an interesting still-life to start the week - I have to look up the phrase 'rules-of thirds'- later after my aquafitness. Fantastic selective colouring!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Philine. There is a "rule of thirds" phrase used in photography quite often for composition: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rule_of_thirds

Rule of thirds, it was only recently that I hear of that....
Great selective colouring. Coffee and rule of thirds, what should we do without that wink
Ginnie Hart: I wonder how many, besides photographers and painters, are privy to that phrase, MLMA? It could probably make a good little sermonette. smile
Nice use of selective colouring Ginnie. i like pencils with a rubber on the endsmile
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Bill. I grew up on pencils with erasers on the end. We could also buy those erasers to put on top when the origin got too worn down: http://www.walmart.com/ip/School-Smart-Wedge-Cap-Pencil-Tip-Erasers-Box-of-144-2-Pack/25427900

Hahah... I wish! I do try to consider the rule of thirds, though. Good to see acknowledgement of the metric system on the rulers smile I like your selective colouring very much.
Ginnie Hart: What is it they say, Alan: Learn the rules and THEN you can break them. smile Thanks.

In my case the pencil part usually lasted a lot longer than the eraser - which must say something about the number of mistakes I used to make!!!

Nice selective colouring - a lot of work!
Ginnie Hart: I ALWAYS had to use extra erasers, Mike, so you and I were in the same boat, it looks like. smile

And yes, this one did take a lot of work. Thanks for noticing.
Happy Monday Ginnie. Your rulers are ruling the roost here
Ginnie Hart: HA! Thanks, Janet. smile
So many rules, Ginnie. Perhaps a few were meant to be broken. Nice presentation.
Ginnie Hart: I agree, Mary...you gotta learn the rules to know how you can break them! smile Thanks.

A fascinating photo Ginnie, and the colour of those rulers is very warming.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks and thanks, Chad.

Dutch team rulers. Hup, Oranje.
Ginnie Hart: I never even thought of that, Louis. Good one! smile
I would have walked straight past this but you, as always, saw this great picture Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Very kind of you to say so, Brian. Thanks.

Interesting Ginnie. Look like rules of convenience to me smile
Ginnie Hart: Yes, you could say so, John. Thanks.
Well, at least there's plenty to measure it with!
Ginnie Hart: HA! Very true, Tom. smile
That is a wonderful image, Ginnie. Magical.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Michael. It was fun to see. smile

Completely surprising these rules. I appreciate the black and white and color mixture
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Marie. This was fun to see and work on. smile
Your brilliant treatment makes this come alive, Ginnie. Are these pencils & rulers free for customers?
Ginnie Hart: You're very kind, Beverly. Actually, these were in the country store at the fair, which would mean, I assume, they were for sale (though I never checked). Hmmm. Next year I'll pay better attention and not just take pictures the entire time. HA!
pencils and rulers! very systematic start for the week Ginnie, i like this
Ginnie Hart: So glad you enjoy all your ducks in a row, Ayush. We'd make a good team. smile

Great colours and interesting idea, Ginnie.
I wonder, did you see this image in your mind when taking the photo??? smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, dear Petra. I don't always see the selective coloring when I take an image, no, but once I see it on the big screen, I almost always see it immediately. This one took a lot of time but I ended up liking it.

Sometimes it is nice to break the rules ;-)
Ginnie Hart: After you learn them, Cherry, you can figure out how to break them, right? grin
LOL! That's great!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Robin. Sometimes inside jokes are the best. smile
