Then this will be a long and subtly varying series, Ginnie...bring it on!
Ginnie Hart: Actually, Ray, there's only one more in this series, so you can start gearing up for something else. smile
Love windmill Friday! And that soft focus!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Robin. Only one more in this series and then it'll be a "something else" Friday. smile
i will never get tired of the windmills of your mind Ginnie....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: Most kind of you, Peter. One more in this series and we'll then move on...!

Never getting bored with windmills... Love the soft focus here, almost dreamy, exactly what they are doing right now. Dreaming of wind and work like crazy.....
Ginnie Hart: The lights are on and everyone is now awake, let's hope. Off to work they go, indeed. smile
Windmills are so fascinating Ginnie! Superb image.
Ginnie Hart: Yes, they are, Richard. Thank you.
*Imperial March*
Ginnie Hart: HA! That's one way to put it, Michael. smile

what a great day, windmill friday smile windmills are so pretty aren't they, i loved them as a kid and wanted a pair of wooden shoes
Ginnie Hart: One day maybe you'll get a pair of wooden shoes, Elaine. Easier to carry around than a pair of windmills. smile

Well twiddled Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.
I never get bored looking at windmills Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Very kind of you, Bill, because neither do I (but then, we're both Gemini!). Only one more in this series and very different from the others, so we can all move on to something else. smile

Never bored with things of such beauty smile I can't join in with a Windmill Friday series; my colelction is 0.
Ginnie Hart: Glad you're never bored, Alan, because after 6+ years I'm still not bored by them. Only one more, though, in this series before I'm back to Boat Friday or who-knows-what.
I sure that that will not stop you Ginnie, I fact, not exactly endless. But a great challenge.
Ginnie Hart: HA! Well, even I would get tired of them after awhile, Chad, I'm sure.
superbes moulins!! amitiés
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, JP.

A beautiful Composition - and with mills wings very well positioned, together - Nice
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Pat. You'd love this place.
I really love this one, Ginnie. Like last weeks, there is a bit of a charcoal effect.
Ginnie Hart: You remember well, Mary. Thank you.

The blades all braked in the same position - adds likey elements to this picture. But you know what I said about Kinderdijk and likeys smile
Ginnie Hart: All the sails are in rest position, Louis...not working...on Christmas day. It's wonderful that they have their own language. Seriously. http://ginniehartvv.blogspot.nl/2013/08/the-language-of-windmills.html

Only one more image in this series, so at least you know this isn't endless! smile
Come to London!
We have some windmills here, scattered all over some really odd places.
Ginnie Hart: For all the times I've been to England, I don't think I've seen one windmill, LC. Hmmm. And it's not that I'm not looking, of course!
That is a very nice 19th century photograph.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Michael. It's so fun to step back in time with these old mills!
Ditto all my previous comments about this place Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Brian.
and the wind blows,have a nice day
Ginnie Hart: If it weren't for the wind....!
Another stunning image - I love the softness of this
Ginnie Hart: Most kind of you, Elizabeth. Thank you.
i am quite content to look at your windmill shots, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: You're a sweetheart, Ayush. If you haven't yet been to Kinderdijk, we'll take you when you come back.

Beautiful and atmospheric smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Cherry. Do you think you and Mr. C would ever want to visit our neck of the woods for vacation-time or a long weekend? If so, just let us know.

We will be sure to let you know if we are near your neck of the woods smile

We were sorry that you were in England when we visited Belgium last year.

We haven't finalised any holiday plans yet for this year. although we have lots of ideas ;-)
Ginnie Hart: Well, please know that if ever we're able/free, we would love to have you here. Our senior-living complex has 2 guest rooms across the courtyard from us, one of which we could always reserve for you. This is a pretty full year for us thus far (unless you're talking about Sat-Mon weekends, when Astrid is off), but you never know. Just let us know....!
