this is awesome. I love the perspective and the reflection.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Hollie. I've loved the VPP since high school days in art class, I guess? smile
I love all that's going on in this shot, Ginnie! Reflections and patterns in the water... the VPP! Very nice, Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Elizabeth. I liked all the angles as well as the light vs. the dark tones.

Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Elaine. It's funny that I don't take photos of it more often, for how much I like it!

Phew! What have you done to this image, Ginnie?
Ginnie Hart: I don't have a clue, Ray!

Love the lines in this picture. Great shot and well seen.
'Vanishing-Point-Perspective' would also make a great Scrabble word...
Ginnie Hart: Bedankt, MLMA. But as for Scrabble, not in your wildest dreams. HA!
Well you certainly found it here, Ginnie, excellent.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.
i love it as well Ginnie... and this one is spectacular... and there is so much to see between your point of view to the vanishing point....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: For how much I love the VPP, you'd think I'd take more photos of it, Peter, right?! But thanks.

Oh, Skeveningen is a modern town - an impressive photo!
Ginnie Hart: I have now been there twice, Philine, and have loved the atmosphere both times...but especially so when we shared it with g'son Nicholas recently.

Don't read Astrid's second sentence, Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHAHAHA! You've given me a good giggle this morning, Lisl. grin

And it works very well here too Ginnie alongside all those reflections
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Chris. After I finished the photo book on Nicholas' visit, I had too much time on my hands. HA!
There is so much else here with all the angles and reflections. I would like to see this is b&w Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: It almost IS in B&W, Bill. HA!
And this is a great VPP Ginnie! Well done indeed.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Richard.
This place reminded me a little bit of Brighton. wink

>But why the American flag???
He he... That's actually our Malaysian flag. Both flags look very similar.
Ginnie Hart: I want to visit Brighton one day, LC. But, seriously, about that flag??! Wow.
You have captured a fine example of your beloved VP Ginnie. That water looks as dark as ink!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Chad. You know how much I like being dramatic...in some situations. smile

Great demo of VPP.

I really enjoyed your pictures of Nicolas' visit on fb. Especially that he enjoyed the traditional dutch snacks and food. When I got to know the dutch the daily fare was bread in the evening and a 'warm ete' in the afternoon consisting of veggies, potatoes and sometimes meaty something. Tasty fresh veggies, as my father in law was a veggie farmer. But nowadays they seem to be cooking in more adventurous ways.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Louis, and, yes, Nicholas was willing to try anything we offered him...except licorice. He would not make a very good "drop" fan, I guess!

Great framing and atmosphere Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Many kind thanks, Marie.
Oh, WOW! Fantastic perspective!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Robin. smile

yes! Bill tipped me off, I think. Like the point of view very much. The see looks a bit like it's covered in a crude oil slick smile
Ginnie Hart: Now that you mention it, Alan, that does look like an oil spill. YUCK!
Works well Ginnie. I went to this place in 1966 but didn't get time to go on the pier.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Brian. I have now been there twice and love the place. smile
Fabulous capture Ginnie. A real zoomer
Ginnie Hart: HA, Janet. Thank you kindly.
I don't remember it from when I was there 50 years back
Ginnie Hart: The first pier was lost during WWII, Martin, but this one was built in 1959. It should have been there 50 years ago? But I know...you can't see everything!
I love the way you composed this. Excellent shot. (Six times trying to post but the CAPTCHA keeps telling me that I am a spmmer.)
Ginnie Hart: UGH. So sorry about the CAPTCHA thing. Thanks for your perseverance, Michael!
