Where are the Women?
Ginnie Hart: Exactly!!!
C'est superbe, on dirait un peu les trois mousquetaires.
Ginnie Hart: Great thought, Martine. I agree. smile
The lighting on this image is just perfect! Nice capture... smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Sudipto.
It's really very fun Ginnie because this morning I also posted musketeers ... a little different. Very beautiful light on yours
Ginnie Hart: How fun, indeed, Marie: Your Three Musketeers! smile

If this is sand then the person who created it is a genius Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Every year they have a different theme at this place, Chris. I can hardly wait to find out what it is this next year. But THIS exhibition on the Dutch painters just blew my mind!

This is fabulous, Ginnie. The lighting is just wonderful. They did a great job creating this exhibition. I like to visit them next year again.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Astrid. I want to go back to every new exhibition they ever have, for sure!
Magnifique prise de vue ..sculpture de sable exceptionnelle !
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Claudine. Merci.

No mistaking what the original is, Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: It's amazing, Lisl, isn't it!

Incredible that this is in sand. It is rather more grand than my sand castles of my youth (and later smile ) A wonderful piece of work.
Ginnie Hart: It was the first time Astrid and I visited this sand-sculpture place in Garderen, only 85 km away, Alan. It totally astounded me. We will make sure we go back every year when they have a new theme.
Très belle lumière sur cette sculpture.
Bonne journée Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: You would love this place, Pascale. Merci.
Wat heb jij een prachtige zandbeeldengroep vastgelegd.
Wat een sfeer...top
Ginnie Hart: Bedankt, Marjolein. If you've never been to this exhibition in Garderen, it's well worth the visit!
Explain to me again....why is Brexit a good idea?
Ginnie Hart: OMG, Bill. Don't get me started. After everything I'm hearing (since the whole thing started), I find myself hoping it will never happen!

Ha ha very good Ginnie. The reason I called this meeting is because the committee are concerned about serveral aspects of your private life...
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHAHAHA! My lips are sealed, Chad. smile
those are some funky hats!!! i like the rest of their outfits tho... neat picture, neat lighting!
Ginnie Hart: Funky hats but they look quite pleased with themselves. HA! Thanks, Elaine.

These sand sculptures are wonderful- I saw fairy-tales sand sculptures in the Warmelo gardens/Twente.
Ginnie Hart: They're so amazing to me, Philine! I'm not familiar with the Twente gardens but I'm sure they're amazing, too.
I think a few of them have heartburn.
Ginnie Hart: It does appear so, Mary. HA!
This is an amazing sculpture, very difficult to believe it is made with sand, the artist is very skilled.
Ginnie Hart: This is just one of many, Brian, and the theme changes out every year. That amazes me more than anything...that these get knocked down and they start all over again with something else!

Great detail in this sand sculpture!! The lighting really helps add dimension. Plenty of meetings on the horizon this morning.
Ginnie Hart: You'd be amazed at this exhibition, Steven! And yes, I'm sure there will be MANY meetings today on your side of The Pond! (sigh)

Sand you say? So, very soon this meeting will crumble into dust.

While it lasts, it is some excellent work by both the sculptor and the photographer.
Ginnie Hart: Most kind of you, Louis. It amazes me that they change out the theme every year, so these sculptures don't last long before something else takes their place. I can hardly wait to find out what they do next year!
These statues capture such amazing details - your image brings it to life.
Ginnie Hart: You'd be amazed to see them in person, Ruthie. Thank you.
There is a lot of talent behind this creation, Ginnie.
You've made it look like a masterpiece with this fabulous capture.
Ginnie Hart: You would have your mouth open the entire exhibition, Beverly. Seriously. Thank you.

Wow! Somebody worked very hard on that...did they win?
Ginnie Hart: Actually, Bonnie, there's an entire exhibition of several sculptures from different Dutch painters in this collection. Next year there will be an entirely new theme, with new sculptures. I can hardly wait to see what they will be! It's not a contest...but an exhibition!
That is super cool.
Regarding Ray's question about the women: very little has really changed. The white boys are having a power meeting with little input from anywhere else.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Michael...and you are so right. The white men have ruled the world since forever. I'd like to think in some pockets of the world this may be changing?!
when i see that hat and that kind of a pointed beard, i am reminded of Guy Fawkes. beautiful light here for this shot, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: HA!. Well, that's an idea, Ayush. HA! Thanks.

Ginnie Hart: You'd love the entire exhibit, Lotta. Thanks.
lovely light.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Rob.
Nicely captured, Ginnie! Love the light!!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Elizabeth. You'd love the entire exhibition.
All ready to pontificate...
Ginnie Hart: No doubt, Larry!
