nicely isolated and presented Ginnie, i like the carefully painted details.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Ayush. Everything around this gable stone made it seem too busy...so thus the isolation, as you said.
You certainly live in a wonderful place, photographically speaking.
Ginnie Hart: I couldn't agree with you more, Michael!!!
das boot!!! (that movie scared me) interesting shot, Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Hopefully this 'boot' will cheer you up a bit, especially with the cherub watching over it, Elaine? smile

WOW, this is one of the more beautiful gable-stones. Fabulous presentation. I love the details in the boat. Full sail ahead!!!
Ginnie Hart: I loved this stone in Alkmaar, MLMA. One of the best I've ever seen when you consider the scroll work and the cherub. It's fun, isn't it! Bedankt.
I love this one!! It's beautiful, and I love the name! I like how you've resented this!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Elizabeth. There's a lot to see in this particular stone that really makes it more elaborate than most that we see here. Lots of embellishments. smile

I love the cherub overlooking it, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: I do, too, Ray...one of my favorite things about this stone. Lots of embellishments! smile
Wont a wonderful presentation Ginnie! Well done.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Richard. This was fun.

I love the light in the this; it brings out all the subtle nuances.
Ginnie Hart: It was a perfect day for grabbing this one, Alan, indeed. Thank you.

Gable stones are a rarity over here, Ginnie. This one could almost be your trade-mark
Ginnie Hart: I actually have grown to like the weathervanes even more than the gable stone, Lisl, of which you have plenty over there. But, yes, these stones are very special to me here. I never even heard about them till crossing the Big Pond. Sometimes they're very difficult to capture because they're so high up, or obstructed by something, and are almost never plumb. That's why the weathervanes are more fun. HA!
Brilliant Ginnie, I like the way that you have this plaque seemingly floating in a sea of black.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Chad. That's a good way to phrase it...for Boat Friday! smile
Wow, black on black!
You finally got the curtains and the carpet right! Ha ha
Ginnie Hart: HA! I come by it naturally, LC. grin
A gift for Boat Friday Ginnie. Wonderful presentation
Ginnie Hart: It IS like a gift, Janet, isn't it! Thanks.
That's lovely, I wouldn't complain if this was stuck to the side of my house.
Ginnie Hart: HA! That's a good thought, Brian. smile

Super black background on this !! a beautiful relief in the picture - Good weekend in this fine weather
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Pat. And, yes, the weather is great.
This one looks new Ginnie and very handsome it is too
Ginnie Hart: It does look new, Bill, now that you mention it. Good observation. I looked the gable-stone database, where it is, but the date isn't given.
A magnificent one! Happy Weekend!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Robin. I think this is fairly new, by the looks of it. It's in the Dutch database but without a date.
Makes it sound Lancastrian, where the locals say things like "in t'house" smile
Ginnie Hart: Old Dutch does have its plusses and minuses, Tom. HA!

Excellent presentation. The owners have also maintained the stone very well.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Louis. I have a feeling this is quite new, by the looks of it.

I love the way you have presented it without any distractions smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Cherry. It seemed appropriate to "isolate" it. smile
Boats and angels should go together. Nice gable stone.
Ginnie Hart: That's a splendid thought, Jacquelyn! Indeed. Thanks.
it's a wonderful gable stone Ginnie and wonderful treatment with the black background....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.
jolie !! amitiés
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, JP.
Looks like a pirate magnet, ahrrr...
Ginnie Hart: Now that's a great idea, Larry. It must be all those magnets I collected years ago that prompted me to isolate it like this!
