Some R&R Time


Photo taken on 10/10/2007 in a cafe across the street from the Westerkerk in Amsterdam.
May it never be said that Ginnie did not post a cat photo after
her dog photo
of awhile back!

For those of you who do not like the big cruise ships, you may not want to hang around for this.  But today Donica and I fly to Barcelona for a 12-night Mediterranean cruise that we sorely need.  Well, I should say Donica sorely needs.  For how stressed her life can get, flying here and there all year long, a cruise is just what the doctor ordered.

HA!  Now you know where to find me.  If you'll be in the area, let me know in plenty of time.  We'll be checking e-mails at least once every day.  In fact, we plan to be meeting up with  José Angel Sáez-Díez later this evening for a couple hours!

The Internet service on these ships is slow, iffy at best, and expensive, so I have committed myself to NOT queue up any posts for SC while I'm gone.  God knows I have a thousand photos to post but my personal policy is to not post anything if I cannot also visit your sites.

So until I return to Atlanta on November 7th, happy photo-taking to you all.  Please don't forget about me while I'm gone.  I can assure you I won't forget about you. 

Tomorrow is my one-year anniversary on Shutterchance!
A cruise is a good way to celebrate, don't you think?!  :)

Have a wonderful trip, Ginnie! Make like this cat here and relax!
Ginnie Hart: That's what I plan to do, Martin. Thanks. smile
I adore this, Ginnie, cat lover that I am. So cute.

Your cruise sounds wonderful! I hope you have a great time. We won't forget you. smile
Ginnie Hart: I had to give you cat lovers equal time, of course, Red Pen! smile

Thanks for everything.

This is nice Granny!....Wow! I hope I will be the 1st one to sy "happy Anniversary" on here...U've come along way....wink
Ginnie Hart: You are indeed the first, NaCha. Thank you! Yes, I definitely feel I've come a long way, especially for a granny like me. smile

Hi Ginnie - what a great photo! Have a fabulous time away and may your trip inspire, uplift and envigorate you. I look forward to seeing the visual treats you might share with us when you return.
Ginnie Hart: I'm quite sure there will be visual treats galore on our trip. I can hardly wait to capture some of them. smile Thanks, Penny.
Have fun on your cruise! That's a lovely cat photo. smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you and thank you, Karen!
Oooh, how cute! And I'm terribly jealous of your cruise. Congrats on the one year anniversary.

And... constructive feedback... after all the comments I've gotten on framing and cropping, I'll give one back. I think you could lose the bottom of the picture (chair legs) and not miss them, and even highlight the cat more as a result.
Ginnie Hart: This will be our 4th cruise together and we just love them, Jewlya. And thanks for your suggestion, even if I probably won't change a thing. It's always good to hear what other people think.

One of the most peerrrrfect of cat images I have seen on SC, Ginnie.
The set table and chairs gives it a wonderful perspective, and tells a story.
Ginnie Hart: We would never see something like this is the States, Ray. Health inspectors wouldn't allow it. But it does make for an interesting photo, doesn't it. Thank you.

The shot is simply ginnieous, dear. I'd kindly disagree with Jewlya, there is nothing to cut off or add to this shot.

Congratulations on the cruise, on your anniversary on SC, and on meeting with Jose Angel, Ginnie! I can't wait to see your pics from your wonderful trip! Hope you have lots of fun!

BTW, I am lovin' this cat photo. smile Follow what he does, rest, relax, have fun, and explore!
Ginnie Hart: Ohhhhh. Thank you, thank you, Kay!!!
Happy journey and happy birhday !
Your picture is so pretty Ginnie. Fell like sitting here ! With the cat on my knee !
Ginnie Hart: Awww. Kitty-kat would like that, I'm sure, Flo! Thank you.

I agree with Martin' words and wishes! Return very refreshed and with many pics- I guess- in the baggage! I won't forget you!

An Old Irish Blessing
May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again (on Shutterchance),
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
Ginnie Hart: Awwww. You are such a sweetheart, Philine. I like your blessing. Thank you.
cette photo est d'une eclatante beauté!
Ginnie Hart: Awww. Thank you, O-P.
have loads of fun and i am sure u will back with lot of snaps for us. smile

Cat is very cute, i like the post processing. When u are back i will learn it from you. smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir. smile
I like your photo; a big cat to need two chairs!
And have a very good time the two of you.
Ginnie Hart: Yes, the 2 chairs was what made this adorable for me. Thanks, Wim.
Nice and chilled, hope you are too.
Ginnie Hart: That's what I plan, Nigel. smile

congrats on your anniversary. Love the cat it looks like its guarding the chairs for its owners or do the use cats to reserved tables in Amsterdam LOL. Have a fantastic time. As if I would forget about YOU.smile
Ginnie Hart: LOL at you, Tracy. I really like your sense of humor. smile As I was saying to someone else, they'd never allow this in the States (those health inspectors, you know) but there really is a charm to this.

And thank you. You better NOT forget about me. smile

i always think it's amazing the way cats can find comfort in the oddest of places! Terrific shot.
enjoy your break and happy anniversary!
Ginnie Hart: Isn't that the truth about cats! They sure know what they want and like. smile Thanks for everything.
Well! Well! A good form to celebrate your anniversary in SC, Ginnie, a cruise by the Mediterraneo! I will congratulate to you personally today... at the end of the footbridge! LOL!

P.D.: This photo is a LIKEY for my!
Ginnie Hart: Yes, indeed, Jose. At the end of the footbridge this evening. It'll be here before we know it. smile Thanks.
First of all - fabulous photograph! Love the subject and I love the tones! Secondly - I can`t wait to see what you come back with in the way of photographs! I`m really looking forward to your cruise. (:o)
Ginnie Hart: You're a sweetheart, Roz. I hope I come back with a lot to please everyone. smile Thanks.

Ginnie, have a most wonderful trip. What a cute kitty and well framed. I can't wait to see all your pictures when you get back!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks a million, Kathryn. 12 nights is a perfect cruise (we've done 7, 10 and 12 before and 12 is just right because it's long enough and you're ready to go home! smile I hope I have lots to show you 2 weeks from now!
I usually look at these in the evening but shouldn't last night. Now everyone has used up all the good comments. First. I LOVE the cat photo. It's not something we would see in Canada either. It's so typical of a cat's behavior though.

Congrats on your one year on SC. Mine is next week and I have to say you've personally made it a wonderful year from my point of view. You're always so friendly, positive and encouraging. It's a wonderful community and you're at the top, Ginnie.

Have a wonderful break from it all and safe journey!
Ginnie Hart: Your words are very kind, Mary, and flatter me. I must say it's been one of the best years of my life and SC is definitely one of the main reasons why. It's been such a great community...and I'm meeting so many of you! smile One day I may even meet you! Thank you kindly.

Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Ruth. We're here in Barcelona and will be on the ship tomorrow. smile
technically and sentimentally superb shot gin!
as much as i agree with jewlya, i have to say that this shot works just as well
there's no need to crop the bottom
Ginnie Hart: Glad I don't need to do a thing, DrAW because I'm afraid it's too late now. smile Thank you kindly.

Great photograph to leave for your anniversary - great tonal quality and as usual a super eye for composition.

And again I want to exchange Donica for anything 'what I have'. Imagine going on a cruise to celebrate one year on Shutterchance.

You two enjoy that cruise and bring a ton of pics back.

Say hi to J-A when you meet him.

Excellent picture going to my likeys. Only one thing can improve it. That is when the cat's tail twitched in his sleep during that 1/8th second.
Ginnie Hart: HA! Donica won't get exchanged for anything, I'm afraid. grin But the thought counts. And we do plan to enjoy the cruise, starting tomorrow afternoon! We met with Jose Angel tonight and had a lovely 2 hours with him. What a sweetheart! And yes, I said HI from you.

Thanks, Louis, for your support!
This is an AWESOME shot. I literally in love with it!

Enjoy the trip! Dubrovnik is gorgeous so as Barcelona. I envy u know, lol.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks a million, Susan. I look forward to Dubrovnik maybe more than any other city. We fell in love with Tallinn, Estonia last year and have a feeling this will have the same impact. Thanks, Susan.

A super capture Ginnie, very well spotted. *grin* Typical cat, not a care in the world when it's relaxed.

Hope you feel the same and have a totally relaxed holiday, it looks as if you'll have some wonderful photo-opportunities.
Ginnie Hart: Ohhhhhh, ELLIE! Thank you so much for stopping by (while you wait for your computer to be fixed!). We were with José Angel for 2 hours last evening and had a wonderful time. I greeted him for you and he also told me he had heard from you. There was so much more we both wanted to say but we did what we both could with our broken English and Spanish.

I told Louis yesterday that maybe you'll be back on SC by the time I get back. I hope so. It's so good to see your name here again. smile We'll get on the ship later this afternoon. Can hardly wait. In the meantime, we'll enjoy a few more hours here in Barcelona.
I'm sooo very glad you posted this pic here, too because I forgot to comment about it on your regular blog! I love love love this pic, Ginnie! The colors are perfect. And I think you know my love of kitty cats. smile meow.
Bon Voyage!
Ginnie Hart: What a sweetheart you are, Mad! So glad you like my photo. smile And you can be sure you'll get the low-down on everything once I get back...on both blogs. smile
Cute shot Ginnie, me likes it.
Ginnie Hart: Awwww. How sweet, Sesan! Thank you.

Wow, that is an great B&W photo! I love it, well done! It makes me wish I had a cat again, sleeping cats are so adorable.
Ginnie Hart: OMG! Is this the Mark T. from Atlanta who happens to be my one and only SON!!!! WOW! I am now totally awake and you have made my day. Thank you, thank you! We get on the ship later this afternoon and can hardly wait.

I know you miss your cat. Hmmm. Is that a possibility for you to get another one? That might really be "just what the doctor ordered" for you???
This is a gorgeous photo.
Have a great trip Ginnie. Thanks you for the time you have taken to comment on my photos. I ma sure you have reached the record for the most number of comments recieved.
Ginnie Hart: I'm not sure about the record, Gale, but your words are very kind. It was a great trip and I can hardly wait to start showing my photos. smile
seriously love this. This is what is missing in US cafe's. We Americans are just to fussed up. This is great. Can't wait to see the cruse shots. I am going on a caribian cruse in March.

Straight to the Likeys.
Ginnie Hart: You're such a sweetheart, Gail. Thanks. I can hardly wait to start showing my photos. You're gonna love your cruise!
A little shut eye never hurt anybody. Nice capture.

I'll start with the party and the fireworks : CABOOOOOM!!! Happy anniversary!!! (Don't forget to "light a photo" and make a wish...)
I do hope both of you have a GREAT time on your cruise( with that itinerary it's gonna be easy...)and yes - it's a great way to celabrate...!
(I'm biting my nails of envy grin)
Finally your shot: In the Egyptian culture, cats were worshipped as gods, that must be why they always seem to be the "owners of the place"grin Superb, Ginnie!!
(I think I said everything grin)
Ginnie Hart: Your "everything" always humbles me, Lina. Your words are so very kind and sweet. Thank you. I can hardly wait to start showing what I saw. smile

Ah! 70th comment ...it's all been said. ... Please don't flood your blog with more than a hundred images from this fantastic cruise. Ha richard.
Ginnie Hart: If I can narrow it down to a hundred photos, Richard, I'll be doing good! smile Thanks.
love the color tone.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Chantal.

Terrific! I know people who drive their cars to the supermarket and park like that. Your cruise sounds wonderful. Take a shot of some wonderful Gaudi thing I've never seen before.
Ginnie Hart: I hope I found something of Gaudi that you haven't yet seen, Ted. But that might be hard. We'll see. smile Thanks.
You have already arrived! You have enjoyed much the cruise? I have desire to see your vision of which you have seen these days! A great hug, Ginnie and memories for Donica! smile
Ginnie Hart: I can't tell you how many times I thought of you, Jose Angel. It was such a great trip in every way and you were a good start to it all. Thank you again for taking the time to meet with us!
I love the color tone
Ginnie Hart: Thanks again, Chantal.
On November 5: have a good landing at Barcelona!
Ginnie Hart: We did, Wim, and then toured around the city for the next day and a half! I LOVE Barcelona! Thanks.
An amazing shot Ginnie, I have often declared that I don't like cat's but this image of yours I would hang on my wall, ok maybe not on the all, but this is extrmeley good photography!! My compliments.
I have been away for shutterchance in a while, but see you got a nice trip going on right now, and meeting up with our friend Jose-Angel. Must have been nice, welcome in Amsterdam today
Ginnie Hart: Your words are very kind, Patrick. Thank you. It was splendid to meet Jose-Angel and to spend time in his city at the beginning and end of our cruise. Glad to see you're back as well. smile
Hi Ginnie, I see that you have diversified into other subject matters and they are all interesting and well taken.
Ginnie Hart: Sometimes we just have to break out of our comfort zone, don't we, Helen! smile Thanks.
This would make a fabulous greetings card. Love it to bits.
Ginnie Hart: Funny that you should say that, Jose-Ann, because I'm thinking of using this as our Christmas card this year. smile Thanks for your vote of confidence.
Hi Ginnie,

I've been off with health issues for some time now and am only just now interested enough to come back to photography. This was one of the first pictures I looked at and I think it's wonderful!
The subject is SO appealing and well captured but on top of that the picture is technically impressive. Exposure, focus and toning all give this crispness and detail that provide a total contrast with the state of the cat - soft, floppy and spaced-out! I love this and would hang it on my wall!

Ron
Ginnie Hart: So sorry you have had health issues, Ron, and can only hope you'll come back with a bang. Your very kind words here have totally made my day. Thank you very much.
