Windmill Friday

 

Our very own Ayush is enjoying the view (on 12 March).

(Kinderdijk, NL)

 

See the cradle?  Kindedijk means "children's dike."

The Cat and the Cradle fairytale is based on this Dutch legend.

Great picture reflection a perfect time at Kinderdijk. And to think of this only 30 minutes away by car...We had a wonderful weekend showing Ayush around.
Ginnie Hart: It was better than wonderful, MLMA. I'll never forget sharing that magical place with Ayush.
This is a wonderful photo - not just by artsy standards, but also because of the lovely memory of Ayush's visit!
I love the cradle and the legend!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Elizabeth. When you and Frank come to visit us, we will definitely take you there!

Love the play on the water surface, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Ray. There's lots of water action at Kinderdijk to keep those mills working!
What a fabulous image Ginnie! Nice to see Ayush in action.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Richard. This was our perfect ending to such a lovely visit from Ayush.

All is clear to me now Ginnie, the inclusion of the cradle is an appropriate addition to the waterscape
Ginnie Hart: Ayush was the one who found the story, Chris, and sent it to us later, once he returned to Singapore. I'll never forget it, now that I know. I always thought it had something to do with Moses in the bulrushes. HA!

I bet Moses didn't have such a nice basket/cradle, Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Probably not, Lisl, though...who knows??! smile

a very fine image of your meeting with Ayush! Yesa, I see the cradle, I didn't know the story. Thank you Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: I was glad to get the story, Philine! Thank you.

"De toeristen bij Kinderdijk kunnen het boekje Katje, the windmill cat kopen van de Amerikaanse schrijfster Gretchen Woelfle. Hierin wordt het verhaal herverteld, met eigen invulling van de personages. Volgens de schrijfster is haar boekje gebaseerd op een waar gebeurd verhaal, dat zich afspeelde bij Kinderdijk."
Ginnie Hart: I just put this into my Bing Translator, Philine: "The tourists at kinderdijk can buy the booklet the windmill cat kitten, by the American writer Gretchen Woelfle. Describes the story retold, with private interpretation of the characters. According to the writer is her book based on a true story, which took place at kinderdijk. "
superbe photo!! amitiés
Ginnie Hart: Many thanks, JP.
Ha ha... When are you going to invite me there so I can enjoy the same view one day? wink
Ginnie Hart: Right now, LC!!! Whenever you can come, let us know. But you need to send us a photo of you first, because we have no clue what you look like. grin
I was wondering about the cradle. Three windmills at once. Are you pants dry?
Ginnie Hart: Actually, Mary, there are 7 windmills here in this image...out of 19 altogether. I was lucky. smile
six windmills in shot, how good is that Ginnie?
Ginnie Hart: One more, Chad, behind the biggest one to the right. There are 19 there altogether, so they pop up everywhere. smile

Lovely to meet Ayush, Ginnie.

It looks like a gorgeous place.
Ginnie Hart: You''ll love it, Pauline, if ever you can visit us!

One of the main benefots I've got out of SC is meeting lots of lovely people. Of course, we all know what happens to some of the lovely people, too wink I'm sure you had a good time with Ayush. The cradle is very interesting.
Ginnie Hart: We're waiting for YOUR visit with us, Alan. Please keep it in mind!
You'll guess I'm rather envious of Ayush being right down among all those windmills. I enjoyed your set of photos of his visit on your blog, it looks as though you all had a good time together.
Ginnie Hart: It was a great visit, Brian. I just wish we could get all you SCers, one by one (couple by couple), for a long weekend. You'd love it.

Name a song you haven't heard ... heh, funny.

Harry Chapin is one of my favourites.

Quite a shot you have here.
Ginnie Hart: I know someone who has a song for EVERYTHING she thinks of! I don't even come close to that, Louis. smile But thanks.
it is great that you captured Ayush in this frame Ginnie... the cradle is very defined... another great Windmill Friday....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Peter. It was important to me to get Ayush in most of my shots that weekend, which is why I made a post as tribute to him on my other blog:

Nah, it's not a cradle - it's the hiding place of the waterways police, alert for any infringement of regulations!
Ginnie Hart: Astrid would probably come up with something about how the Dutch police are that smart, Tom. grin
As I am also enjoying the view...
Ginnie Hart: You would love it there, Larry!
Very cool shot of the photographer in action.
Ginnie Hart: We were all in heaven that day, Michael. Thank you.
I have to say that I had a wonderful time with you and Astrid the entire weekend and thank you once more for a most memorable weekend, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: You are more than welcome, Ayush. You were such a fun guest to show around our backyard!
Lovely framing and it is nice to see Ayush included in the picture smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you and thank you, Cherry. Ayush was such a lovely guest to have here in our neck of the woods.
Wonderful coloring!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, dear Lady.
A very nice capture here... especially with Ayush there too.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Jacquelyn.
It is a great story Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: I thought so, too, Bill. Thanks.
