Say a Little Prayer


My flight back to Atlanta was re-scheduled from last Saturday to 1 p.m. this afternoon.  It's an hour-by-hour, day-by-day thing.
I'm emotionally exhausted.


The whole world is suffering!

WOW this is so striking, wonderful detail and light giving such a cool mood to this, Hope all goes well with your flight I feel so for all the people affected by the delays
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, dear JJ. It appears that the flight is ON. Good news for lots of people.
Beautiful image, great light and fine processing. I say a little prayer for you and yours... have you thought of taking the boat? smile
Ginnie Hart: The boat would really be desperate, Larry! smile It DOES look like the plane is leaving, along with many others, so there are lots of happy people today!

That thin twisted pair is either a delicate little oil-feed system to the flame, or the darn lamp is connected to the internet!

[The reflections make this such a striking shot, Ginnie.]
Ginnie Hart: HA! I never did quite figure this one out, Ray, BUT, I must be honest and tell you I used a texture that has the reflective dots in it. The original background was purple, as is the texture, so I had fun seeing the result, which seemed appropriate.
It's beautiful, I like very much details and light, the atmosphere too. Bien vue à bientôt VAL
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Valérie.

One day I came home and you were waiting for me with sparkling eyes, you had been working on this fabulous picture, I said a little prayer too that you would be on that flight today, not that I want you to leave, it is the uncertainty that is eating you alive.
The picture is a likey to me and please have a safe flight.
wink I am glad there is skype.....
Ginnie Hart: The uncertainty, hour-by-hour, has been an emotional roller coaster. You've seen it, yes. Let's hope I can not only go but come back when planned! Thanks for all your prayers, MLMAMV! Yes, thank God for Skype.
I'm glad you finally got a flight! I love the detail in this picture - what a lovely candleholder! Hmmm, just before I posted I saw the wires coming down so I guess it isn't a candle after all, so.... great lamp!
Ginnie Hart: It reminded me of an incense burner, Mark, but it was hanging up overhead. Thanks.

A little prayer is sent from me as well. that is some amazing detail in this lamp.
Good luck
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, dear SAVO. I'm off to the train now for my trip to Schiphol airport. So far so good...all systems are still GO.
Such wonderful light, tones and detail...a beautiful image Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks a million, Pavan.

That is really bad luck... I hope you will be home soon !

Wonderful capture of this light...very rich in dark saturated colors.
Wonderful.
Ginnie Hart: I was in bed at 11:30p after a long day at airports, Sidney. That's the good news! Thank you.
The airports are finally open here again and eventually the 150,000 Brits stranded abroad will start getting home. Then the rows will start about whether the ban was necessary in the first place...ho hum!

Nice pic by the waysmile
Ginnie Hart: It's damned if you do and damned if you don't in these situations, Bill. All you need is one plane to crash and everyone would wonder why the plane was allowed to fly! (sigh) I'm very glad to be in Atlanta right now after all the hassle. Thanks.

Yes, Ginnie, as I said, I wish you a safe flight, a lovely togetherness wirth your children, and a good come back to Gorinchem- somebody is longing for you there! Our newspaper titles today " Gigantische Luftbrücke trotz Sperrung"- our pilots protesting against the ban flew only 'on sight' and brought back thousands of tourists from Mallorca... in this way! But I think security must be on the first place!
Your picture reminds me of orthodox churches, it may be a lamp containing the 'eternal light' (sacrament)?
Ginnie Hart: As I just said to Bill, Philine, it's damned if you do and damned if you don't in these situations. All you need is one plane to crash and everyone would wonder why the plane was allowed to fly! (sigh) I'm very glad to be in Atlanta right now after all the hassle. And yes, I have already Skyped met mijn vrouw! smile

I like the idea of this lamp being an eternal light....

Looks as though you are going to make it, Ginnie - I'm still trapped in Madrid until Sunday - with my G9 smile
Ginnie Hart: I did indeed make it, Tom, after a long, rough day. Hopefully you're already on your way by now??

Winderful colours Ginnie, especially as I presume it was very dark.

Hope you get away on time ;o)
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Mike. Your kind of place for photography, I'm sure. smile I did eventually get away and ended up in Atlanta, of all places. smile

This place just rocked, I loved it in there. We spent ages walking around, and never even saw this. Thats what I like about our hobby everyone see things differently. Hope you manage to get on the flight today, fingers crossed Musketeer tonguetongue
Ginnie Hart: Chester was the perfect place to visit once we arrived in England. We didn't let any moss grow under our feet, did we! And yes, I love that we all have our own eyes and see things differently!
Wonderful image Ginnie. I cross my fingers for your departure in half an hour!
Have a safe trip.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Richard. It worked!
Good luck with your flight and visit home to see the folk. You've left us with a lovely image, detailed, exceptional colour, beautifully lit and a very sexy background.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you and thank you, George. It was a long day but I made it!
Hope you get your flight soon, what a greatr image and border, very good
Ginnie Hart: I made it, Derek, after a long day. Thank you.
A lovely image Ginnie, a lot of churches have a light burning all the time like this now in this country. I hope by the time you read this you are safely back wwith your family in Atlanta.
Ginnie Hart: Good to read about such things, Brian, to add to the image. Thank you for that tidbit. And yes, after a long day, I am back with my family.
Hope you arrived safe & sound in Atlanta, Ginnie, and after all the stress & frustration of getting there, you'll have a fantastic visit with your loved ones.

The treatment you used for today's submission makes for a stunning image.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, dear Beverly. It was a long day and I wasn't sure I'd make it before midnight, but I did!
Great texture and color! Nice object
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, BP, for stopping by and commenting!

superbes couleurs.

Lovely texture and colours Ginnie, hope you get your flight. smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Linda, and I did...both of them.
We were in Chester on Saturday Ginnie, there was a wedding going on when we passed the church.A fine bit of twiddling.
Ginnie Hart: I LOVED Chester, Mick. What a great city...and the church was phenomenal.

really beautiful image, Ginnie. Good luck with the flight! I hope it is not too draining for you.
Ginnie Hart: A day later and I am still tired! But I made it, so I'm a happy camper. Thanks.
Excellent image, great light and colors!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks a million, Andrei.

Prayer said, but you have probably left already smile The world is suffering because ashes is making technology useless. I keep on thinking about people who misses business, opportunities, etc.

Example - the young man living 4 houses away has a girlfriend in London and romance seems to be flowering. He recently visited there. She is now returning the favour and should have arrived on Tuesday. For the occasion he planned a visit to Capetown - romantic weekend thing. For that he bought two tickets and made reservations - having just started working that is huge. Hopefully she will be here before Friday.

The little story amongst big ones. A big one is Kenia's cut flower industry - fresh flowers daily on european tables. Tons of flowers wasted and the industry staring bankruptcy in the face if this lasts too long.
Ginnie Hart: The millions and billions of dollars lost...it's mind-boggling, Louis. All the missed weddings, funerals and who knows what else. Sigh.
love the colors and textures, very nice, some terrific light on it as well
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, John. I had fun with this one. smile

yikes, so you were affected too by that volcano, eh? tsk3.. well, at least you're flying now.. have a safe trip.. smile
Ginnie Hart: Yes, very affected, Rian. I had to change my return flight at double the cost of the original ticket. Not fun. But at least I made it and will never forget it! Thanks.

La lumière, la petite flamme, n'est-ce pas le symbole de la vie et de l'espoir !
A bientôt sur notre vieux continent.

Light the flame, is it not the symbol of life and hope!
Soon on our old continent.

Ginnie Hart: Yes, indeed, LoLO. Thank you for your very kind words.
Beautiful! smile

Great caption...for a long drawn-out day.
Hoping you got the sleep you needed, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Kay. I'm still catching up, I'm afraid, because my time-table is more wacked out than usual, for some reason. I had been going back-n-forth to Europe twice a month for so long...but now hardly ever. I guess that's the difference.
