Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Cherry. I got them from in front and behind and somehow liked this view the best. smile
Oh I think you're so right!!! It's the first thing I thought when the image opened... Wonderfully done, Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Elizabeth. I'm so glad you thought of Norman Rockwell, too!

Great scene and they do a great job keeping the trade alive.
I rather go fishing than to the salt mines.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, MLMA. I'd much rather go fishing than to the salt mines....indeed!

Haaha- more Dutch cannot be - I don't know Norman Rockwell, but I love this picture!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Philine. Norman Rockwell maybe be one of America's most famous painters, especially because he painted everyday scenes like this.

I like the image Ginnie: fishnet mending isn't something I would wish to do myself..
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Chris. The art is very fascinating to watch and is something both Astrid and I could get into, if necessary. smile
Some good old fashioned braces too ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Bill. Norman would have liked that! smile

Completely really, we would say Norman Rockwell's scene. I like and it also reminds me my childhood because in Brittany we still wore wooden clogs in farms when I was a child
Ginnie Hart: Most/many Europeans are not familiar with Norman Rockwell, Marie, but we Americans grew up with him! Thank you!
Ginnie, cool photo!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Roland!
excellent traitement!! amitiés
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, JP.
Tiff would do well here Ginnie, he likes wearing braces.
Ginnie Hart: Yes, I know, Chad, but he says he would NOT want to mend the nets. smile

Only the modern thermos flask and the cans of beer to give the game away. Lovely partial shot that tells the whole.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Mike. There is always something that gives it away. smile
Ha ha... Look at the little boy!
He's like "Crap, can we go home now?" grin
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, LC. I decided not to clone him out, just for you.
I like your unusual POV. I notice they have their drinks hidden from the crowd.
Ginnie Hart: Where I was standing, Mary, is a set of steps that takes you down to the harbor, so I was standing straight up to take this pic. It was fun.

People at work. I dunno about Norm, but I likey it.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Louis. That Norm happens to be one of America's most famous and beloved artists. His images graced the Saturday Evening Post for years. We all loved hm.

I see exactly what you mean, Ginnie, it could be one of his paintings.A Really good shot.
Ginnie Hart: Very kind of you, Frank. I don't expect many outside of America to even know who NR is but for those who do, it's a real treat.
that is a nice perspective and the picture says lot smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Joshi. I wasn't able to access your site with this URL or when Googling after several attempts. I'll try again later.

This is wonderful, Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.
It reminds me of Rockwell, too. I like the short stool in the middle...
Ginnie Hart: After all those Saturday Evening Posts, I guess NR really seeped deep inside of me, Larry. smile

Great image, it's wonderful that these old skills are still being shown
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Anne, and I so agree.

Apart from the boy, it is probably a scene that not changed for decades. I like the braces.
Ginnie Hart: I think you may be right about that, Alan! I like the braces, too. smile
That does not look like comfortable footwear. I can feel the Rockwell.
Ginnie Hart: Once you get used to wooden shoes, I'm told, they're very comfortable, Michael. Astrid wore them to school her entire 11th grade...just because!

The salt mines suck. I hope your Monday was uneventful in the Monday stakes Ginnie smile
Ginnie Hart: Lucky for me, Geoff, I'm retired and no longer go to the salt mines. But for those of you who do, you have my best sympathies. smile
This is great, they are all wearing clogs and it has the feel of hard working men taking a break.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Brian. They were demonstrating how they do it and were having great fun in the process.
I thought it was going to be the rear view of a folk band!
Ginnie Hart: HA! Now that's an idea, Tom. smile
Absolutely a Norman Rockwell! Love!
Ginnie Hart: Glad you agree, Robin. Thanks. smile
This is fantastic Ginnie. One of my favorites of yours.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Hollie. That's so sweet of you. Actually, it's one of my favorites, too. smile
