A fine shot, Ginnie...and, I like that biker interaction very much!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Ray. The biker interaction, as you'd imagine, is a common sight here in this biker country!

That is the most important thing, taking time to have a conversation with somebody or just a HELLO or goodmorning/afternoon/evening, according the time...
Fabulous picture and great timing.
Ginnie Hart: We're so busy nowadays, it's sometimes hard to remember that a simple HELLO will work wonders!
So wonderful to be able to stop and chat! That happens a lot in Flagstaff, too - I love it!
Ginnie Hart: May we never ever be too busy to just stop...and chat!
i love this picture and the way you created this amazing treatment...
i always stop to chat with people...
my sons joke about getting into an elevator with me... they say
"he always talks to people who can't get away"grin
....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you and LOL, Peter. Well, what a way to be remembered!

bridges of a netherlandish county... lovely shot, very peaceful and friendly looking
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Elaine. Dutch drawbridges are one of my favorite things about living here!

Well hello there, did you steal that bike from Alan Rolfe? That's where I got mine from.

So he's had to buy a new one
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHA. I love it, Chris. smile

Yes, this is Dutchland - a wonderful composition with the wintery tree in the centre and a peaceful atmosphere created by your treatment!
Ginnie Hart: No place like Home, Philine. smile Thank you.

Always good advice, Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: It is, Lisl, isn't it. We live in such a different world from our growing-up days!

Il faut vite retrouver la carte
JP
Ginnie Hart: Could be, JP, though at his age, I bet he knows the place like the back of his hand! smile
That is a good thing to do Ginnie, even if the person you are talking to refuses to look up.
Ginnie Hart: HA! True, Chad. smile
These days time seems being more and more money... Thank you for this wonderful booster injection as to how life should be Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Richard. Whatever happened to those good, ol' days???
I like how you've created a 'window in time' look.
Ginnie Hart: I like how you've described it, Mary! Thank you.
superbe prise!! amitiés
Ginnie Hart: Merci, JP.

Cyclists (as opposed to those people who simply ride bikes) are generally an affable bunch and I will exchange greetings when out on the open road. This is a very pleasing scene.
Ginnie Hart: I always think of YOU, Alan, in such scenes...of course. smile

A great picture, with a view of a meeting of the local chapter of Cycling for Health.
Ginnie Hart: HA! Exactly, Louis.
Bikes are more social than cars
Ginnie Hart: Indeed, Martin!
A splendid idea and a fine picture

I said hello to my new camera this afternoon
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Bill. And what is your new camera??? Inquiring minds and all!
a hello is always in order, even if the two people are like the red and black arrow (off in separate directions), Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: You're learning Dutch signs very well, Ayush! smile
"Hallo" in Dutch or German accent? wink
The lift bridge is so Dutch. I miss Amsterdam already.
Ginnie Hart: Please tell us when you plan to return so that we don't miss you, LC. The welcome mat is always out for you here where we live!!! smile
I imagine the population of bikes is higher than that of people in the Netherlands!
Ginnie Hart: I do recall that this may be true, Tom. I'll have to confirm it with Astrid. HA!
Wonderful Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: HELLO, Robin, and thank you. I assume you're starting to settle back in on your side of the Pond!
It looks like it's viewed through a haze... I like...
Ginnie Hart: It actually was a gorgeous, sunny day, Larry, but thanks!
That is the best thing about going for a stroll or a ride.
Ginnie Hart: I totally agree, Michael!

Lovely picture Ginnie - it's always good to stop and say hello smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Anne, and yes, it is. Which reminds me that we may need to start talking about dates????
Lots of interest in this photo, the saying Hello is almost a side show ;-)
Ginnie Hart: More Dutch you cannot get, Cherry. It holds MY interest, too, even after all these years! smile
