Beautiful treatment, Ginnie! Have a great weekend!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Elizabeth. Sometimes the gray winter days are meant for sailing away.

A beautiful, ornate weather vane you've spotted here!! The gold and patina contrast well with each other.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Steven. Weathervanes like this are too good to not see!
Beautiful and striking colors smile
Ginnie Hart: Even midst the gray of winter, Joshi! Thanks.

I guess this is some sort of old trading symbolism Ginnie? Very nice too..
Ginnie Hart: I suppose so, Chris. I wish I knew more! Thanks.
C'est très joli. La couleur dorée tranche bien avec le bronze.
Ginnie Hart: Merci, Martine. I've always liked these two colors together.

A very special weather-vane, Ginnie. Bet you jumped up and down when you saw this!
Ginnie Hart: HA! You know me well, Lisl! smile
Une girouette vraiment très belle , si haut placé il doit avoir la nostalgie de l'ocean ..
Bonne journée
Ginnie Hart: That's a good one, Claudine. I really like that thought. Merci.

Finally a weathervane again, one of your collection hobbies! A very fine image!
Ginnie Hart: Yes, Philine. I can never get away from them! smile Bedankt.

Is this a repeat Ginnie because I am sure you have shown a boat weather vane before, or is this another one?
Ginnie Hart: HA! Definitely another one, Chad, but sometimes they all do run together.

I like this a lot, Ginnie. Is this on top of the Palace on the Dam? Love the twiddle it adds drama to this picture.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Astrid. Your guess is as good as mine about where this is in Amsterdam, but you may be right!
From Bissau to Palau - in the shade of Avalon
From Fiji to Tiree and the Isles of Ebony
From Peru to Cebu hear the power of Babylon
From Bali to Cali - far beneath the Coral Sea
Ginnie Hart: YES, Bill. You nailed it!

A fitting conversion. Sail off into the weekend.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Louis, and exactly.
Très belle cette girouette.
Bonne journée Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Merci, Pascale. The Dutch LOVE their vanes!
this is a very striking picture!! but surely this sort of sky at night is not a sailor's delight!
Ginnie Hart: During the day, Elaine...but a gray day at that! You know me in that I have to add drama. HA!
I like your treatment here Ginnie, that must have been a pretty strong zoom you used for this.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Brian. That's my magic 1200 mm lens, which I love, especially for weathervanes. smile
One of your most beautiful weather vanes.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Mary. I did think it was worth showing.

I'm pretty certain I would not want to sail away. I'd take the plane and I'll be waiting for you...
Ginnie Hart: HA! Makes sense to me. Alan. smile
Do not tell me you brought the spire too. Or was that the boat? smile
Ginnie Hart: HA! Two for the price of one, Claudio. smile
Somewhere of the palace...ha ha...wel enig verschil
Maar mooi gespot.
Fijn weekend
Ginnie Hart: Bedankt, Marjolein. We're sailing away to South Korea to watch the Olympic games. smile
wins the prize for being elaborate...
Ginnie Hart: It's definitely a winner, Larry. Thanks.
Sailing of to the Indies!
Ginnie Hart: I bet you're right, Tom.
Sailing through the sky. I love the added texture. A wonderful image.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Michael.

Love your treatment of the image smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Cherry.
Just beautiful! I love the gold and green!
Ginnie Hart: You know me and weathervanes, Robin. Hard to resist this one. Thanks.
