This is a wonderful image, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.
I like the bright blues and oranges...
Ginnie Hart: I do, too, Larry. Thanks.
A very nice shot, Ginnie, I like the van awaiting the Crabs. smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Frank. That awaiting van was definitely important to this entire operation.
A wonderful shot, Ginnie!!
We'll spend Saturday with the Vaughan's - celebrating Rosemary's 93rd birthday!
(Her birthday is actually on the 27th, but at his sister's behest... Matt will be with them. Which pleases me, as it will please the elders!)
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Elizabeth, and good for you. Enjoy your visit immensely. 93 is quite an achievement!

J'aime beaucoup l'ambiance des ports de pêche.
Ginnie Hart: I do, too, Martine. I'd go back to this same port for how much I enjoyed it!

This was an unexpected scene we walked into. I love this picture very much. Very telling how things go, look at the roof of those storage units and the boat. Maybe this is a case of hard work and not getting what they should get.....
Fabulous picture a likey to me.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Astrid. I have a feeling this is a very hard life, while the elites in their fine restaurants enjoy their crab. (sigh)
Il me plairait bien dêtre là  ..Très belle prise de vue
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Claudine. I'll never forget it.

The industrial bit near Penzance. It's nice to know they still land fish there Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Yes, indeed, Chris. We were lucky to be there at just the right time.

Oh, what an interesting scene of a hard life! I see also the car which will transport the crabs to a factory or restaurants?
Ginnie Hart: Yes, indeed, Philine. In the video you can see the crab van ready and willing to transport the haul.

There's a clue as to what the white van is carrying, too. I bet some of the catch will be on a dinner table somewhere later in the day. I like the light mist over the houses.
Ginnie Hart: I'm sure there were many a willing customer for that fine catch, Alan...on a delightfully foggy day.
Lovely picture Ginnie and the thought of that fresh crab......yum!!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Bill, and I know! smile
A great looking working boat, crabbing must be a big business there with the dedicated crab delivery van.
Ginnie Hart: It was clearly a successful haul, Martin, and the van guys appeared happy!

i am loving the houses on the hill in the background, so beautiful, and so 'english'... great shot, my friend!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Elaine. You don't know how often Astrid and I say "That is so
English!" Indeed so.
Looks like a good haul. Really like the video.
Ginnie Hart: It seemed good to us, Mary (though we had nothing to compare it to). Thanks.
I like atmosphere of this port. Beautiful reflections also.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Marie. It was a soulful place to visit.

This is such a wonderful scene!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Ladicola. It was a very soulful place.
A fine shot and excellent video. I often think when I see ships unloading things like Crabs, how come they don't they all get caught because even these guys seem to have a large number of them.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Brian. I'm sure you know way more about this than I do but it sure was interesting to watch.
Ah look at the weather, so miserable. wink
So you have to come and visit this place again in the future.
Let's hope it will be a good clear day!
Ginnie Hart: To be honest, LC, THIS is my kind of day!!! Seriously. smile

Never knew that crabbiness can be so idyllic smile The sort of fogginess makes this a special picture.
Ginnie Hart: Those crabs made someone's day, Louis. HA! I actually quite like this kind of weather, to be honest. Thank you.
That is a wonderful photograph.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Michael.

Great DOF...love the sharp against the misty.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Bonnie. This was one of those days when the fog was our friend. smile
i like the backdrop formed by all those houses, Ginnie. and great activity going on too in the front.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Ayush. It is still a lovely memory from that day.
Girl Pamela is a hard working fishing boat Ginnie... thanks for the video too... it looks like hard work for the men as well....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: They choose female names for their boats for a reason, I'm sure, Peter. HA!
Very good photo Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Roland. Am I missing some of your images...because I don't know how to navigate your page??? I hope not.
I love images of just normal daily living...nice!
Ginnie Hart: I do, too, Robin. Thank you.
