It looks a bit too...umh...hoi poloi for me to enjoy the coffee, Ginnie.

I am more into sitting on a top step with a cracked mug...
Ginnie Hart: You're right about the hoi poloi part, Ray, since this castle from 1882 was built in the style of a palace. Not exactly my cuppa tea either but at least it was inviting.
this is so English... beautiful composition Ginnie....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: So English in Germany, ready for some Dutch visitors! smile Thanks, Peter.
That is gorgeous. I usually drink coffee but I think tea would be more appropriate. Earl Grey, please.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Michael. I wasn't sure if that was a coffee or a tea pitcher...or maybe there are both on the table?

This looks very inviting, I think I have a few moments before I go off to work.
Love the light and a great choice of B&W.
One koffie for me please and maybe iets lekkers erbij wink
Great picture.
Ginnie Hart: You have plenty of time, MLMA...and maybe a scone with some delightful jam and clotted cream?!
I love this cosy atmosphere Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: I do, too, Richard. Thanks. This 1882 castle was built in the style of a palace.

I will sit with my back to the window because the view might blow my little mind
Ginnie Hart: It was rainy that day, Chris, but the view really was still quite magnificent.

C'est un peu vieillot.
Ginnie Hart: Just from 1882, Martine. Couldn't be THAT bitter, right? grin
Don't mind if I do smile
Ginnie Hart: Just waiting for YOU, Bill. smile

It looks very grand; I think one would need to dress for afternon tea and hold the cup with the little finger crooked. Not to sort of place to end up with jam and cream across your face smile
Ginnie Hart: A bit too hoity toity for me, Alan, but I'd welcome the invitation, if given...especially if they included scones with clotted cream. smile
belle compo avec une lumière et un noir et blanc extra! amitiés
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, JP.
I would love to do that in your photograph Ginnie, so exquisite.
Ginnie Hart: Just bring the scones with clotted cream, Chad, and it's a deal! smile
I want to show you a tablecloth trick, Ginnie ,smile smilesmile
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHA!

You have a great result here with the lighting in this picture.

Thank you for the invitation. I will have a Turkish double strong, no sugar or cream.
Ginnie Hart: Very kind of you, Louis. I wonder if I'd like so strong a coffee??? Hmmm. I'd definitely like the smell.
Set for an intimate tea, just how I would imagine it would be for Maureen and me.
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Brian. Very English...in Germany!
i want a tea smile) have a nice day
Ginnie Hart: It's all ready for you! smile
a cozy affair for two, Ginnie. very nice combination of light and darkness
Ginnie Hart: There are three chairs, Ayush, so you're included! Thank you.
LOL on what Ray had to say! Love the lighting!
Ginnie Hart: Hoity toity is more like it, Robin. HA! Thanks.
Looks like a nice spot for a cuppa!
Ginnie Hart: I thought so, too, Tom.
Oh you went to Germany?
Why do all the refugees prefer Germany? I still quite don't understand...

Aren't all the EU countries the same? Did you know that UK is going to have a referendum some time next year to decide whether UK should stay or quit...
Ginnie Hart: So many questions, so little time, LC. (sigh) By now we have many English friends who tell me they do NOT want to quit the EU. Makes me wonder what will be decided...like happened in Scotland not too long ago, right?
