Excellent!

She needs bigger dogs, and the they can tow her along, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: They all seemed to manage like they knew what they were doing, Ray. But talk about surprising me. It made me wonder if she was from the Cloisters nearby?
I like the forest of columns.
Ginnie Hart: 'Forest' is a good wor4d for them, Michael. smile Thanks.
You and Astrid have such sweet shots up today!! Love your coloring on this!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Elizabeth. We have such a good life! smile

a sweet scene - a fine Ginniean treatment!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Philine. smile
I like your pov especially.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Jacquelyn. I have a feeling this is a daily walk for them.

Great treatment on this picture. I saw this lady walking around. From my point of view she is a 'regular' outside it was cold and she is not wearing a jacket.
Wonderful scene.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, MLMA. I wonder if she lives at the Cloisters nearby??? She gave me that feeling.

Very nice Ginnie: lap dogs
Ginnie Hart: Lap dogs, indeed, Chris...who need their exercise from time to time.

I would never have recognised this as Salisbury Cathedral, Ginnie - well done!
Ginnie Hart: Isn't it strange how things like that happen, Lisl...and we're all witnesses of the same place!
I like this very much. The vignette colour is a clever touch
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Bill. Sometimes you and I are on the same page with this vignette, I think.

Now I'm surprised to see non-assistance dogs in the Cathedral. Perhaps the door staff consider that we are all God's creatures?
Ginnie Hart: It surprised me, Alan...and then I wondered if she lives at the Cloisters nearby and has special privileges???
What a lovely scene with your special treatment Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.
Ha ha... I hope she got away with her dogs! They didn't charge the dogs for entrance fees, right? wink
Ginnie Hart: I have a feeling she doesn't get charged either, LC. I wonder if she's a permanent resident from the nearby cloisters?

It seems timeless somehow, Ginnie. Such a pleasing shot.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Pauline. I think you're right about the timeless feel!
My sweet granddaughter is sitting on my knee so I have shared. Nice rendering, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Awww. That's a nice memory, Mary. My grandson is sitting nearby, but not on my knee. HA!
She is unlikely to wear those dogs out Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: But she could cover a lot of space in that huge cathedral, Chad!
Totally agree with the timeless feel! I know you're enjoying family right now!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Robin. And YES. Only 2 more days before he leaves. Boo Hoo.
They all blend in so well Ginnie. Lovely processing
Ginnie Hart: They seem to all belong together, Janet, don't they! Thank you.
Apart from the excellent finish this is a really nice image of this elderly lady making her way along quite slowly with her dogs whilst the young lady was no doubt hurrying along with a spring in her step.
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Brian. Thank you. I decided to keep the girl in for the effect. smile

An excellent shot and well converted. If I was one of them dogs, I would be wary of that walking stick.
Ginnie Hart: If I were one of those dogs, Louis, I'd assume I was in heaven! smile
Nice gentle exorcise for everyone
Ginnie Hart: Yes, indeed, Martin. smile
Nice treatment, ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Tom.
I love your perspective of the Cathedral.

Oooh... I dream for the chance of a mid week break ;-)
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Cherry. And yes, I can imagine how much you're waiting for that day! Astrid, too.
i love this image Ginnie... the old and the young... at some point we will have been each of them....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: Now and forever more, Peter. HA! Thanks.
That certainly looks like a great place to linger with your camera. This is a lovely shot.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Michael. It was hard not to notice her!

sweet, i'm glad she has her two friends.... nice shot, Ginnie!!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Elaine. I have a feeling they're a cathedral "fixture." smile

J'aime l'atmosphère de cette photo et le parallèle entre cette vieille dame qui marche à  pas mesurés et la jeune femme qui arrive à  vive allure dans l'autre sens.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Marie. I almost cropped out the young lady and then decided she was an important part of the image.

Great capture, Ginnie, and wonderful processing, brave and mesmerizing. So inspiring!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, dear Petra. The scene really made me stop dead in my tracks!
