Ginnie, I love the tones and the texture here. Really nice as always. Surprise! Yes I came back to SC for a visit.
Ginnie Hart: Well, HELLO! Good to see you here again, Kay. THANK YOU.
Very nice processing, Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Michael. Just playing around again. smile

A wonderful detail of the windmill. The Maypole dance is not something I have ever seen in Hollandshire. I know my mother talked about it from the time she was a child.

Ginnie Hart: I didn't grow up with the Maypole dance either, MLMA, but we always knew about it. I love the YouTube link and to see that some places are still doing it. What a great tradition for this first day of May! Bedankt.

I am liking the closeup very much, Ginnie.

What music is playing over it?
Ginnie Hart: I love every detail of these mills, Ray, and never tire of seeing them. When I realized it was May Day, I decided to use this musical texture, just for the halibut. Too bad I don't know the score!

Smart isn't it Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: I do love the Dutch windmills, Chris, as you know!
Absolutely splendid this windmill
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Marie. There's nothing else quite like a windmill! smile
i just LOVE your windmill friday! boat friday used to cause me so much stress, but this is beautiful for me now smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Elaine. When I run out of windmills, I'll have to warn you about a Boat Friday coming up. HA!
A Dutch Dalek!
Ginnie Hart: HA! That'll work, Bill. grin

Oh yes! I'd overlooked that it was May Day and a day for maypole dancing. Not seen that for years now though. What do the red, white and blue poles do? Some sort of control gear?
Ginnie Hart: I have a feeling every pole means/does something, Alan, but exactly what, I don't yet know. I just look and ask no questions...yet. HA!
That is two votes for Windmill Friday Ginnie. Richard Trim seems to have passed the mantle of Bike Friday on to Philine.
Ginnie Hart: I noticed that, Chad. I like that Friday has many themes now and we just get to pick one to be in style. smile
Enjoy the company of Tiff and Lisl, I can just see you walking the Citadel way Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Oh, yes, Chad. We already have a tentative schedule drawn up to give especially Lisl the lay of the land. When you and Tiff come back in September, we already have another agenda planned. smile
I quite like your treatment Ginnie. What a splendid image!
Ginnie Hart: Very kind of you, Richard. Thanks.
Love this detail of the windmill Ginnie, looking like a thatched windmill cottage
Ginnie Hart: Thatched, it is, Janet. Good eye. I never tire of these mills. Thanks.
Very cool background to this excellent windmill shot.
Ginnie Hart: Many thanks, Mary. Just playing around on this happy May Day. smile
Oh, the perfect treatment! Yeah for Windmill Fridays!
Ginnie Hart: HA! YAY for windmills, Robin. grin Thank you.
This is quiet unusual with a little thatched roof smile
I have seen and been to a thatched church on the Isle of Wight. smile Very cottage-like.
Ginnie Hart: We have thatched roofs all over the Netherlands, LC, not unlike England. Maybe we're sisters?
What a great idea Ginnie, I like it very much.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir. smile

Labour Day. And the mill is not working. That fits.

I like the composition and of course the conversion.
Ginnie Hart: Labour Day and most people were working here, Louis, including Astrid. That's not true in America when it comes around in September. Anyway, thanks!
i love the windmill Ginnie and the sheet music to the May song as a background.... superb treatment....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Peter. This was fun, in honor of the day.
I love this view - I've not noticed this side of the windmills before!
Ginnie Hart: Windmills have all their different sides and faces, Elizabeth, just like the rest of us. HA! I love it. Thanks.

What a grand windmill! This might be a quite old structure?
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Emily. And yes, most of the windmills at Kinderdijk are from the 1700s. I'd call that old! smile
I like the treatment you did on this one. Very nice.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Hollie.
Very good processing, decorated with music score.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Roland. This was fun for May Day! smile

Fabulous windmill smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Cherry.
Very subtle texture, it made me do a double take.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Will. This was a fun process, to bring a bit of the day into the image. smile
The up close is interesting...
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Jacquelyn. The closer I get to windmills, the more I love them! smile
Very painterly...
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.
