It's a New Week

 

I always anticipate how nicely and quickly things will clear up.  :)

Sunshine coming soon...
Ginnie Hart: Oh, yes, Ray. I can feel it....
It's so beautiful how the building just "appears" out of the fog. Wonderful lighting, Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Elizabeth. Every day seems a bit better thus far.... smile
That is a wonderful shot with that great mist obscuring the distance.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Michael. Why is it that we all love the fog! smile
What a lovely perspective Ginnie! It will clear up soon.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Richard. I'm totally optimistic. smile

A brave new week, and things getting better all the time, I trust, Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: I like that, Lisl..."a brave new week." I do believe I see progress with every passing day. In fact, I told Astrid I plan to take my pain meds only 3 times today instead of the normal 4. I want to see if I can manage that.

One day soon we will be back on our photo-hunts and visit these wonderful places and walk all over 'tarnation'....... (I think)
A new week and yes the sun will come out soon.
Great shot and great memories.
Ginnie Hart: Little by little, step by step, we'll soon "be there," on the other side of this fog. Then WATCH OUT. Here we come again. smile Thank you so much for hanging in there with me on this new adventure.

Beautiful pier. A special atmosphere with the fog. Have a nice week
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Oscar. It was a splendid place to celebrate our 7-year anniversary of meeting in real life, so we'll never forget it. smile

a wonderful composition on an autumnal day - we could be in England, too.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Philine. Since this is on the Belgian coast, I have a feeling a LOT of English people were there that day. We sure heard a lot of English spoken every day. smile

Ginnie - realistically if this is winter it might not clear up!
Ginnie Hart: HA! Well, since it's symbolic for where I am these days, Chris, I do hope you're wrong!!! smile Or maybe by mid-March (Spring!) I'll finally be coming out of the fog??? I hope sooner than that, to be honest....but by mid-March, that's only 2 more months, right? That actually MIGHT be realistic. Hmmmm.

I like misty atmosphere of this photo. And your composition in diagonal.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, dear Marie. I'm still in a bit of a fog with my knee but am hopeful things will clear up before long!

Love it! Far nicer than a cloudless blue sky and the beach crowded. I love the atmosphere and the leading-in of the handrail.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Alan. This was the day of the endurance bike-ride on the Belgian coast father to the south. You would have been there in a New York minute.
A nice misty morning picture Ginnie. I like the two people strolling along
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Bill. I love moods like this. smile

It is a new weak, but hopefully you are getting stronger Ginnie. Lovely photograph.
Ginnie Hart: Step by step, day by day...yes, Chad. I feel the fog is lifting! smile Thanks.

Un cadrage excellent
JP
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, JP.
I actually quite like this pier.
Rather art deco. smile
Ginnie Hart: You'd love the café at the end and the good food, too, LC. We had the best carbonara I've ever tasted in my life!

Nothing wrong with winter weather ... it makes us appreciate the warmer seasons
Ginnie Hart: Absolutely, Richard. To be honest, I've always loved all the moods of winter!

Love your pier in the fog.

The week does tend to ebb and flow like the tide - Monday being the low point. But day follows night...
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Mike. Yes, indeed. There does seem to be a rhythm to everything.
We all have foggy days to contend with but the sun comes out, always.
Ginnie Hart: Lest we forget!!!

love those tracks in the sand, i wonder whom or what was making wandering traves, just taking in the beauty.... was it you? smile
Ginnie Hart: Who knows, Elaine. If it's like beaches everywhere, I'm sure there was lots of fooling around. grin
A really contrasty b&w might work well here, Ginnie. I trust the knee is coming along well.
Ginnie Hart: I'm sure you're right, Tom. So many choices. (Sigh) And, yes, step by step, day by day, there appears to be movement forward! Thankfully.
Fantastic Ginnie... don't worry i am in the same boat...
Its freezing here
Ginnie Hart: I do hope that doesn't mean you just had a knee replacement, too, Ronky! smile Anyway, it helps to know when others are in the same boat, whatever that might be! Thanks.

"Clearing up" amply illustrated. However, it is still January. What I remember of the Netherlands, they sometimes think of Elfstedentocht in this month - not that you will participate this year. But next year, just may be something else.
I took note that you are not laying on the bed, but on the sofa.
Ginnie Hart: It is, indeed, still January, Louis, so symbolically I will think about the coming of spring and the skipping around of lambs. smile

Believe it or not, I am up and down all day long (never in bed during the day), trying to get comfortable, doing my exercises, etc. So far so good....
What a lovely pier, who cares if it's misty, that way one is almost guaranteed to get the place almost to oneself.
Ginnie Hart: I just love the atmosphere that almost always accompanies fog/mist, Brian, and feel lucky that we had fog that day! Thanks.
We have sunshine today here in Raleigh, after a week of depressing overcast... I would love to explore that building...
Ginnie Hart: You'd find a great place to eat there, Larry, and plenty to see, I assume, once the fog lifts. smile
The pier is the safe and careful walk > The sand is the fun run.
>>> Step safely till you can run Ginnie. : )
Ginnie Hart: I think you nailed it, Jacquelyn. Thank you.

I always think that fog makes a very pretty scene smile
Ginnie Hart: I do, too, Cherry. Thanks.
what a mood and beauty smile
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Joshi. I love what fog affords us!

Bit like over here Ginnie we can't even see the Tamar and the valley today.
Great capture with the light you had.
Ginnie Hart: What is it about the mist/fog that we all seem to love! It's magical.... Thanks, Peter.
excellent cadrage!! amitiés
Ginnie Hart: Many kind thanks, JP.
it sure will! the green light helps in leading one in, Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: The green light helps, Ayush, indeed. As long as it stays on for me, I'll keep moving, fog or no fog! smile
This is such a lovely atmospheric capture, Ginnie. The couple walking hand and hand on the pier is icing on the cake.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Beverly. Nowadays I'm seeing everything differently, of course. smile
One thing about having it done in mid winter, you should be up and running in the spring Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: That's exactly my plan, Janet. You nailed it! Thanks.
I so love that you're a glass half full kinda woman! Every day will get better! xo
Ginnie Hart: It's so much better than the alternative, Robin, isn't it. I don't ever want to live any other way. Thanks again for your vote of confidence!

I love this advanced sea !! but in summer !!! ;-))
Ginnie Hart: At the end of November it had its charm, Pat, but I can just imagine how fun it would be in the summer months, indeed.
