May you always make it safely to shore.

See what Astrid saw here.

Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Peter. We have so much fun with our different "witness" to the same things. smile
A wonderful sculpture isn't it!! And I love your comp with the light house in the back!
I love seeing artists at work... smile
Ginnie Hart: To be back on our photo hunts means more than I can say, Elizabeth. We LOVE doing them together...watching each other! smile Thanks. You'll be doing it soon again yourself, with your beloved.

I love the view with the light house in the back. The artist, she did a great job. Very fascinating. And I think it was situated in the proper place.
Ginnie Hart: I didn't get close enough to see that the artist was a woman, MLMA. I'm so glad you saw that. I'll never forget it...and sharing it with you on another photo hunt makes me feel like old times are here again. YAY!

and the wind always be at your back, and the road rise up to meet you and godspeed lol i love sayings like that... neat sculpture!!!
Ginnie Hart: Well, it IS almost St. Paddy's Day, so it seemed appropriate. You can almost see England and Ireland from this lighthouse. HA! Thanks, Elaine.
What a beautiful sculpture! I like your composition with the lighthouse.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Richard. I love art like this!

Powerful stuff isn't it Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Oh, yes, Chris. To be out photo-hunting again is pure joy.

Long and short shots are both fabulous!
Ginnie Hart: So often it's one of the other when we're both witness to the same thing, Ray. I'm still looking at the forest while she's looking at the trees. smile

Good that you have given us two pictures here, both in a different context
Ginnie Hart: Sometimes it helps me to see things from varied angles, Lisl (as you know by now). If I can't pick one view, that's when I'm glad for collages, for instance. smile Thanks for knowing me.
Lady P in action taking her picture for today. I am pleased you have featured the whole statue in its environment Ginnie, now we have the full picture
Ginnie Hart: I often see the forest, Bill, while Astrid sees the trees. Put them together and, yes, you get the full picture. Thanks. smile
I kinda prefer yours though. wink
I can see the lighthouse in yours.
What can I say? Lighthouses make me happy! Ha ha grin
Ginnie Hart: Lighthouses make me happy, too, LC. smile Thanks.

Interesting piece of sculpture (I love the abstract depiction of the raging waves) positioned perfectly against the lighthouse.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Mike. I love sculptures like this at special sites, like lighthouses.
Wonderful Boat Friday composition Ginnie, reflecting the element of danger that lies out there. Nice to see Astrid giving it the once over
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Janet. It's fun to be back doing what we both love to do! smile
Heave Ho, Boys. There's a lighthouse in sight.
Ginnie Hart: That's what I love so much about this spot, Mary!

Wonderful! What a wonderful piece. I can just imagine it being rowed across the storm-tossed seas. I'll look at Astrid's view when I get to the week's base camp later on.
Ginnie Hart: You'll love how Astrid zeroed in on the boat's crew, Alan. Enjoy your week away!

I love the two different perspectives on the same subject by you two. Both great. In yours, the boatsman can keep an eye on the lighthouse.
Ginnie Hart: I love when we do our photo hunts, Louis, because we always see them differently! Thanks.

Oh wonderful, another view of the fine sculpture that Astrid showed. Thanks Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: You're welcome, Chad. I usually see the forest and she usually sees the trees. smile

We also have statues like that in Strängnäs our summer town.
Ginnie Hart: They're wonderful, Lotta, aren't they! Thanks. (I left a comment on your Soothe My Soul post but am not sure it took. Let me know if it didn't.)
At least they made it to shore permanently... lol
Ginnie Hart: HA! That's a good way of looking at it, Jacquelyn. smile Thanks.
I really like the sculpture and the top of the lighthouse is quite unlike the ones we have.
Ginnie Hart: We rarely see lighthouses here, Brain, so this was a real treat for us. Thanks.
What an amazing sculpture! Love your composition...and yes, Astrid's image was phenomenal...as if it was in water and they were rowing their hearts out! Fabulous - both of you! What a team! xo
Ginnie Hart: Just call us Partners in Crime, Robin. smile We love our photo hunts and how we each see the same things differently!

That looks a great piece of sculpture, lovely looking lighthouse too!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Anne. It was well worth the visit!
An early lifeboat?
Ginnie Hart: Looks like it, Tom. That's what Astrid immediately called it.
That is a magnificent sculpture. Making it safely to shore is the most important part of the journey.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Michael, and I totally agree. They say most accidents happen within 25 miles from home!

You have captured the sculpture at a perfect angle.

It is nice to see Astrid framing here shot smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Cherry. I always love our photo hunts, seeing what we both come up with when we are witness to the same points of interest.
beautiful and cool perspective smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Joshi.
