The Battle of Arnhem, NL, WWII (3 of 3)

 

Astrid and I took son Mark to the Airborne Museum in Oosterbeek, NL, to see Operation Market Garden,

the battle showcased in the movie "A Bridge too Far."  Totally worth the experience. 

 (this is one of the 3-D cut-out displays--in other words, that's not a real car)

Nice and gloomy...
Ginnie Hart: Kinda sounds like an oxymoron, Larry, right?!

very daunting feel
Ginnie Hart: Yes, Sherri. I agree.
I'm trying to imagine what the actual display looked like - because your photo's of it are so interesting and unique! Your photos may be better than the actual display was...
Ginnie Hart: NoNoNo, Elizabeth. Most kind of you but the displays are absolutely awesome...like well though out reenactments, all very realistic. In this case, you look through an open window through layered cut-outs. The former images were exhibits out in the open that you could walk around.

An interesting set-up with 3-D cut-outs! The lighting adds a very dramatic feel here.
Ginnie Hart: It really was quite dramatic, Steven. Thanks.

They did a great job displaying things and I love this picture you took of the scene, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Astrid. i will totally enjoy going back to this museum again...with The Boys!
This is such an awesome series smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Rob. If you enjoy learning all about WWII, this museum in the Netherlands is a must.

That Museum must have given you a real feel for what happened, Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Oh, my, Lisl. I really got my education...especially with son Mark helping with further details and watching "A Bridge too Far" with him.
Une reconstitution impressionnante !
Ce musée est très interessant
Bonne journée
Ginnie Hart: It's very impressive, Claudine, in every way. Totally worth the experience.
Magnifique, j'adore !
Une image dramatique à  souhait et qui offre une superbe ambiance. Bravo.
Bonne journée Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Merci, Pascale. It's a sobering place to visit because it's so very real!
You would never guess from the picture Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: I know, Bill...which is why I mentioned it.

It looks very dramatic and creepy ...
Ginnie Hart: It's that kind of place/exhibition, Philine. Quite sobering.
museums are so cool, they way they blend the physical display with a background painting... and the lighting in this is sublime!
Ginnie Hart: This museum takes the cake, Elaine!

This looks exciting but obviously terrifying at the time Ginnie. Love the theatrical set.
Ginnie Hart: At one part, Chad, there are also sound effects (in the first image of this series), really adding to the drama of this WWII depiction.
Echt bijzonder om te zien deze `sfeer`
Ginnie Hart: Inderdaad, Marjolein. It was a part of the war we'd all like to forget.

Another excellent war picture. I think I should visit the place when next in the Netherlands. I have done the Arnhem Open Air museum, which I found quite worth my while. Of course it was a different type of museum.
Ginnie Hart: You will totally find it worthwhile, Louis. Astrid and I went to the Open Air Museum soon after I moved here. I wouldn't mind going back again one day!
Its all very imaginative Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: It is, indeed, Frank. I'm sure for many it's all too real, still.
A very good shot considering the circumstances under which it was taken.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.
Beautifully done and expertly shot. Great job, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Mary.

You created a great deal of depth in this one. I like the spots of yellow, red, green, b/w colors...well done!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Bonnie. The lighting everywhere was very nice.
Looks surreal, Ginnie... Nice capture... smile
Ginnie Hart: I know...and thanks.
The eerie light is impactful here.
Ginnie Hart: I thought so, too, Ruthie. Thanks.

One of the great films about the war. This has a strong 3D effect.
Ginnie Hart: The first time I saw it was with son Mark when he was here recently, Alan. Seeing it in conjunction with this museum, and then crossing the Arnhem bridge, was all quite sobering.
it tells the story well Ginnie... great photo....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Peter.

I am enjoying this series, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: I'm glad, Ray, especially since this is the end. smile

not real but still quite effective and clever, i think, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: It definitely had the feel of being real, Ayush. Bedankt.
Aussi sombre que la guerre.
Ginnie Hart: Well said, Martine.
