Boat Friday

 

When you're high and dry, you can still "exercise," right?

(The base of the 10-meter history column in Koblenz, Germany.)

It's a grand piece of work, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: When you see the whole thing and how it represents the history of the city, Frank, it really IS grand.
you find the most magnificent Boat Friday images Ginnie... love the shot and the treatment...
i did notice that the woman was at the tiller....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: This was a no-brainer for both Astrid and me when we saw it, Peter! Thank you.
What a lovely piece of art Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: You should see the whole thing, Richard!!! Thanks.

I rather like the waves, too, Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: They take their own water with them wherever they go, Lisl. HA! Thanks.

This is an amazing piece of art. Each level represents a era.
Wonderful point of view and yes Peter is right, the woman is at the tiller. I think there should be more women in that position.....
Ginnie Hart: And to think it was the first think we saw when we walked out of the parking garage! We were short of eyes from that point on. Bedankt, MLMA.

well at least they have no dynamic resistance!! they still look wet and tired tho!
Ginnie Hart: The sculptor made sure they always had their own waves, Elaine, which was forward thinking, I guess? smile

Whoever they are they've had enough, they're rowing their barrels of booze away to another land
Ginnie Hart: When you put it that way, Chris, it brings a smile, for sure. smile

Fabulous, Ginnie...but, I would hope it sometimes has water under it.
Ginnie Hart: I would hope so, too, Ray, and thanks. Maybe that's why the sculptor made sure he included waves at the base? smile
It is a very unusual artwork Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: I thought so, too, Bill. Thanks.

So many persons and so many barrels in such a small boat - but they manage the situation and the lady is the helmswoman! Yes, Koblenz is a water- and boat- town. I love your treatment!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Philine...to all of it! smile
Lovely piece, good treatement Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Roland.

It's a fine piece of art. The faces of the rowers show fatigue of a long crossing. Looks like they have been pooped on by the pigeons. Off to look at Astrid's image now.
Ginnie Hart: Being pooped on would be the end of it for me, Alan. HA!
They just didn't know when to stop, now they are truly high and dry.
Ginnie Hart: Good one, Martin. Indeed.
They are obviously trying to save barrels full of something good.
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Mary.
Ha ha ha "row for all you're worth, but you're not going anywhere".
Ginnie Hart: All dressed up and nowhere to go. smile
belle oeuvre! le traitement de la photo est extra! amitiés
Ginnie Hart: Many kind thanks, JP.
What a marvelous centre piece for the town Ginnie. A Boat Friday special
Ginnie Hart: It's definitely a thing of beauty, Janet. Thanks.

J'aime beaucoup
JP
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, JP.
Don't think they'll get far!
Ginnie Hart: After all these years, Tom, I agree.
What a novel sculpture, the modelling is superb on the rowers.
Ginnie Hart: It's as wonderful as it looks, Brian, on all sides!

Thats what I love about your photos. You are always able to capture these great sculptures, which I can never really see here in Toronto. Happy Friday, my blogger friend smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, dear Emily. I truly feel blessed! smile
a crowded vessel...
Ginnie Hart: The more the merrier, Larry????
LOL! What a great find!
Ginnie Hart: She's BAAAAAAck! And what a woman you are, dear Robin!
Now that is a very cool sculpture. You sure find a boatload of great stuff.
Ginnie Hart: It's fun, Michael, isn't it. There are boats here in Europe everywhere we go!
