Bon week-end à toi aussi !
Ginnie Hart: Merci, Martine!
Beautiful. A lovely serene shot. There is something and greenery that is so relaxing. And peaceful water.
Ginnie Hart: Just knowing you can step out your backdoor to that, Michael, really pleases me! Thank you.
What a very pleasant photo Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Frank. I've decided it's knowing you can step outside your backdoor to this that pleases me as well.
A beautiful image, Ginnie! Some similar colorations to Astrid's... but in yours the green is predominant... the reds and oranges more subtle.
Ginnie Hart: You had me going to see what Astrid put up before I could respond to you, Elizabeth. HA! Yes, you're right. smile

This has such a 3D feel...I like your use of the foreground. Beautiful textures!!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Bonnie. Just knowing you can step out your backdoor to this makes me happy. smile

I like all the subtle variations of green in the bottom half of the image, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: This is definitely a time you can tell there are so many variations of green, Ray. Thank.

I'm a sucker for old brickwork Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: I am, too, Chris!

I love the greens here they are so radiant. This is a perfect place to be. And lik Chris, I love old brickwork and they had a lot in Vianen.
I do wonder though if "Family Mosquito" will have party time here at night.
Ginnie Hart: The thought of stepping out your backdoor to this makes me smile, Astrid. But now I wish I didn't know about the mosquitoes. sad

What? Already? What lovely view this is; I like the liy pads on the pond and that fine old brick wall especially.
Ginnie Hart: All of the above, Alan! smile

The old town wall? A nice, refreshing image! I wish you an enjoyable weekend, too, despite the searing heat!
Ginnie Hart: Yes, Philine. The old wall with its moat around it! Today we're getting a bit of relief but it's still hot. By next week we should be okay again. (sigh)
Merci toi aussi ..
Ginnie Hart: Merci, Claudine.

Bon week-end
JP
Ginnie Hart: Merci, JP. And to you as well.
That wall is a thing of beauty Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: The old wall of the city, Bill. It's also the same wall as inside the cloister garden on Wednesday.

That looks a little quirky Ginnie, but very nice all the same.
Ginnie Hart: To have one side of your house as part of the city wall is very quirky, indeed, Chad. The more I think about it the quirkier it becomes!

een mooie kleurrijke foto Ginnie..

een wal van de vroegere vestingstad neem ik aan

alvast een fijn weekend gewenst
Ginnie Hart: Yes, indeed, Willy. The old city wall surrounds this city and has this moat outside of it. It's fun to see. Bedankt.

Beautiful warm facade enveloped by the refreshing verdant tones of the foliage!!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Steven. It has so much of everything!
I would love to be right there but will happily be here too. The temps are going down to the mid twenties and there may be scattered showers. The best thing, the humidity is lifting.
Ginnie Hart: It's the humidity part that is the worst, Care, isn't it. So glad things are cooling off there. It's starting to do that here, too.
By the way, this is an excellent photo of a beautiful location.
Ginnie Hart: Most kind of you, Care.

The exhibition in that wall, fascinates me. From here I can't see, how they get to the place, except for walking around at the end of the street. Then, for all their trouble - they don't see the exhibition from their own windows.
Ginnie Hart: It just occurred to me yesterday that they must have gotten permission (??) to cut through the city wall, Louis. Maybe that surprised me more than anything.
What interesting textures. A lovely view. Friendship
Ginnie Hart: Indeed, Ruthie. It's palpable. Thank you.
I like the picture altogether but I drawn to that small area around the steps, that would make a fine picture all on its own.
Ginnie Hart: You're quite right, Brian. Too bad I didn't think about that because my zoom could have easily picked it up!
a wonderful place to spend the afternoon watching all of the things moving around in to moat Ginnie... great crisp details....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Peter. Astrid and I want to go back to see the inside of the church, at which time we'll probably do some more looking around!
very nice. And so close. Lucky you smile
Ginnie Hart: Later I realized, Rob, that they had cut through the city wall. I wonder if they had to get city permission?
I really like the mix of colours in this waterfront landscape. It's restful and it must be nice to live there. Good Sunday Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: "Restful," I think, must have been what I felt, too, Marie, when I saw this. Merci.
