Very cool. I like the way the vignetting pushes the eye in.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.

It is certainly getting warmer here, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: We're having a colder spell right now, Ray, but I 'spect it won't last too long?
Nice shot, Ginnie! A beautiful building, and lovely presentation!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Elizabeth. Leuven's town hall is one of the more ornate ones in Europe. You'd love it.

I remember these young man, sitting on a crate with beer...Great picture and great presentation. The prediction is that it will be slightly warmer, so who knows...
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Astrid. I was wondering what they were sitting on. HA! I suppose we'll still have plenty of colder days but at least we know it WILL get warmer before long.

I don't think so, Ginnie - cold and very wet here this morning. The North has had snow
Ginnie Hart: Same here, Lisl, at least on the cold front. The good news is that we know for sure it WILL get warmer, eventually.

The way these fellas are dressed suggests not Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: This was actually back at the beginning of December, Chris, but it could be now, based on the temps here.

Oh yes, I remeber this beautiful town hall in Leuven -Löwen as we say, too - Leuven has a very famous university and I see here the students- an artistic photo!
Ginnie Hart: You know Leuven well, Philine, if you know about the university, where we spent some time in the central library!

compo et traitement extra!!
pour Venise prend le pass Vapporeto une semaine (60 euros) et tu voyage en bateau autant que tu veux si tu veux aller a Burano ligne 5.1 jusqua Fondamenta nuove et ligne 12 ! amitiés
Ginnie Hart: Thank you for the Vapporeto tip, JP. We've been looking into all the options!
Pas encore vraiment là  ce printemps..très belle photo..Bonne journée
Ginnie Hart: I think many of us are getting a cold spell but hopefully not for long, Claudine. Merci.

it's cold and rainy here tonight, though not cold enuff to get more of that freakish snow we were having this winter!! that's a beautiful building in this picture, is that one guy looking at you? did you get caught? lol
Ginnie Hart: Guys are always looking at me, Elaine, didn't you know???? But none of them "catch" me. grin
It has gone colder here!

A good picture whatever the weather Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Here, too, Bill. Maybe that's why I put this one up for today!
It's hard to tell on a wet day like today Ginnie. I like your washed out colours here.
Ginnie Hart: I actually remember snowstorms even into April in my growing-up days, Chad!

Great picture. How refreshing to see someone perusing something on paper, rather than a mobile phone!
Ginnie Hart: I haven't even thought about that, Anna, but you're so right. Thank you for stopping by and commenting here. Do I know you? Do you have a blog I can visit?
We are about to have the coldest temps of the season so no is my definite answer - for the short term. For the long term, yes! Spring is springing.
Ginnie Hart: It seems to be hitting us all in the same way, Mary. HOPE, then, is what wins the day!
He he... Town halls in Belgium all have this standard look!

Cathedral-like.
Lots of statues.
Very Gothic look.

Guess what, the woman in red coat.
I bet she's Chinese! Ha ha...
That kind of bubble coat is extremely popular in China. It's like a standard too. wink

Just like Korean women like to wear visors. I don't know why, it's like a standard too. Maybe they play a lot of golf?
Ginnie Hart: HA! You may be right, LC. You usually are! smile
I like this very much, the one young man has seen you but doesn't seem concerned. I guess you are having the same cold spell we are for a few days, it has to improve by Sunday as Alan R.is coming to our part of the world on Sunday and we are meeting him at a local stately home to go and see the lambing at their farm, Sheep Saturday and Sunday smile
Ginnie Hart: Oh, how fun for you, Brian. Please give Alan a big HI and hug from us both. By then we'll be in Venice. smile

It was getting warm here, Ginnie, and then is suddenly snowed! such crazy weather, i could use a little spring temperatures smile
Ginnie Hart: It's been the same story almost everywhere, Emily. But then, I remember snowstorms even in April from years ago!
Can't help but agree with Michael regarding the vignetting...
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir!
That's a pretty fancy facade!
Ginnie Hart: One of the fanciest I've ever seen, Tom!

Great conversion and picture in general. I feel for that young man with his scarf over the ears.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Louis. I don't suppose you're used to such cold! HA!

Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Anne.

Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Peter. The good thing we all know is that spring WILL come, eventually.

Ginnie Hart: Bingo!
The vignetting really makes this pop! Lovely!
Ginnie Hart: YOU make me pop, Robin! smile
