Wonderful ad for bricks, Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: I say that quite often about the Netherlands as a whole, Ray!
That is superb. You always get to explore amazing places.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Michael. I'm constantly pinching myself!
I love the way you've done this, Ginnie!
(First the election, then the super bowl... tomorrow's Monday... UGH! But hey - I've got Frank!)
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Elizabeth, and YES. You have Frank!! Bearings enough, in other words. smile
What a great setting for hijinks.
Ginnie Hart: HA! Now that's an idea, Michael. smile

Is that a compass in the floor there Ginnie?
Ginnie Hart: I do believe so, Chris. That means it was originally in the nave of the church. Have you ever seen that before, I wonder?

What an impressive ruin - a brickstone church which has surely a long history.
Ginnie Hart: The church is from the 15th century, Philine. Lots of history, indeed. The roof of the nave caved in after a storm in 1928 and has never since been repaired.

I love the symmetry in this and how the compass (I assume) is slightly turned. Even the trees are almost in symmetry. Great picture. An amazing place.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Astrid. You know me and symmetry. HA! But I didn't think about the trees also sharing it. How fun.

Ancient brick - fantastic, Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Lisl. I'm still quite amazed by all the brick here, Lisl. In America it is a sign of wealth!
Quelle belle photo ..j'aime vraiment le rendu noir et blanc
Bonne journée Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Claudine.

What a wonderful place this is; I like the brickwork very much. I'm often surprised when I think I'm looking in one direction only to find I'm actually looking in a different direction. Whitby, for example, which I know is on the east coast of England but it actually faces north!
Ginnie Hart: Directions can be so discombobulating, Alan, can't they! smile
This looks a handsome ruin Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Yes, Bill, it is.
wow, that's kind of eerie... looks like a scary movie could be shot there!! great shot!!
Ginnie Hart: On a sunny day, I can picture a wedding ceremony...or a concert in the evening with fabulous lighting. But on a gloomy day, yes, a bit eerie.
I have never seen a compass on the floor of a church before Ginnie, most interesting.
Ginnie Hart: I found it most interesting, too, Chad!

Shucks, the floor is withstanding ruin. Great view.
Ginnie Hart: A secure foundation, it seems, Louis! Thanks.
This is wonderful, Ginnie. A perfect subject foe black and white.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Mary.
compo et noir et blanc extra!! amitiés
Ginnie Hart: Merci, JP.
That's a bit like a pentacle in a supernatural novel.
Ginnie Hart: Kinda, sorta, Brian, indeed. smile
Thatäs pretty impressive brickwork!
Ginnie Hart: Yes, it is, Tom. I see such like it all over the Netherlands and am still amazed by it.
Perfect bw Ginnie and beautiful stones. Certainely a beautiful place to visit
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Marie. Too bad we weren't able to go in but could only look through the gate.
some very good old masonry here Ginnie... i love how the b&w turned out....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Peter. I absolutely love Dutch masonry!
An old church? I'm so curious about this church now. What happened to it?
Ginnie Hart: Apparently a storm caved in the nave in 1928, LC, and it has since never been restored. It wasn't even WWII.

The B/W treatment really makes the textures pop.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Bonnie. It was quite the place to see.
Jolie étoile dans ce beau décor.
Ginnie Hart: It caught me by surprise, Martine.

Ginnie Hart: I always think of YOU, Robin, when I see wabi-sabi-ness. smile
