Nice and sharp... and funny!
Ginnie Hart: It's a pretty common sight here in the Netherlands, Larry. smile
lovely shot, Ginnie. the clog seems to be having a bit of a chinwag with the seat!
Ginnie Hart: HA! Something was definitely going on, Ayush. Thank you.
smile Isn't that great! Your selective coloring works very well here!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind Lady.
All of the Netherlands symbols in one image!
Ginnie Hart: Almost, Michael...just needs a windmill! grin

Fabulous selective colouring. Tourist love this wooden shoe, it is a good thing it is locked to the bike otherwise it would be gone in a second..
Love the grey tones here too.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, MLMA. Leave it to YOU to notice that it was locked to the bike!!!

Wonderful, Ginnie. I like the selective colouring; it has really made the clog stand out.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Alan. Sometimes you just have to draw attention to the oddities of life!

Golly - I thought you had placed it there with some clever manipulation, Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: HA! Who, ME?????
Love this Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Bill. You probably saw something similar when you were here.
It definitely is very Dutch Ginnie! Great use of the partial desaturation.
Ginnie Hart: More Dutch you cannot get, Richard. smile Thanks.
It looks as if the saddle has turned round to talk to the clog Ginnie, nice yellow colour.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Chad. They're having a conversation of sorts, I assume! smile
Great colouration. Now I understand your comment to Lisl.
Ginnie Hart: HA! Yes, about my comment to Lisl. Some things do follow after the other. smile Thanks.

a funny observation you emphasized by the selective colouring.
Ginnie Hart: But then, Philine, the Dutch are funny, right??!! grin
Only in Holland, G! wink
They need to come out with something bolder now!

How about a wooden clog salad bowl? wink
Ginnie Hart: Now THAT'S an idea, LC, whose time has surely come!!! smile
One word, brilliant!!!!!
Ginnie Hart: HA! Well, thank you, Brian. smile
Love it! Enjoy your weekend!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Robin. You, too.
Is there a bit of jiggery-pokery going on here, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: You probably nailed it, Tom! grin

Ginnie Hart: I think someone was having way too much fun, Louis. smile

The seat has taken on an alien persona! I fear for the colourful clog!!
Ginnie Hart: The battle is yet to begin, Cherry! smile

Ginnie Hart: Who knows these things, Elaine?????

Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Peter. One wonders about such things. smile

Excellent
JP
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, JP.
That is so beautiful.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.
I love this kind of effect where the object in focus is in colour while the rest is in b&w. Lovely photo!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Charles. It's so fun to do...and is called "selective coloring."

That makes me smile! smile
Ginnie Hart: Me, too, Ray...every time. smile
Where is the boat? Have a nice weekend.
Ginnie Hart: HA! Well, some Dutch do make boats out of their wooden shoes, as you surely know, Oscar?! smile
