Little Bo Peep

Late this afternoon Donica and I will fly to Hannover from London after what I'm sure was a full weekend (this post  is pre-published).  Soon I'll be back in the swing of things here on SC, I promise, and will start showing London pics.

In the meantime, here's a weather vane from Hannover's City Center.  I LOVE weather vanes but usually don't have a clue about what they mean, if anything.  This one always reminds me of Little Bo Peep!
Little Bo Peep has lost her sheep
And can't tell where to find them.
Leave them alone, And they'll come home,
Wagging their tails behind them

How sweet! That is a very ornate weather vane, perfect for a silhouette shot. Hope you are enjoying London!
Ginnie Hart: London was fantastic, Karen! We're now back in Hannover, exhausted but happy. smile Thanks for your comment awaiting me. smile
That's a lovely wind vane. The image looks straight out of a fairytale. It could have used a bit of straightening though, but a great picture nonetheless.
Ginnie Hart: What I decided to do, Kedar, was to straighten the actual vane, which put the top of the building at an angle. If I had straightened the building, the vane would have been at an angle. So, decisions, decisions! Thanks for your comment.

This really is a lovely weather vane. Good contrast here. You should return there when the sky is blue and take another pic. smile
Ginnie Hart: Good idea, Julia. I wonder how different it will look! Thanks for your comment.

What a really clear photograph to have been taken from quite a distance, and at an awkward angle. It's a very interesting and intricate shape too.

I do hope your short stay over here in UK was good, and the weather was kind so that you could see all you hoped for. smile
Ginnie Hart: As I told Kedar, I decided to straighten the vane itself and let the building be angled rather than the other way around (decisions, decisions!). But you're right, Ellie--when you take a pic that's so high up, there is always an angle to something!

Our time in London/UK was fabulous. I can hardly wait to start telling bits and pieces through my pics (like you will be doing of your time in Portugal!). So you know what I'm feeling. smile Thank you.
I like it !! The draw against the sky is nice !
Ginnie Hart: Thanks a million, Zeb, as always.

I love the details on this weathervane!

It was great talking with you just now! I didn't even tell you that I had your SC page open while I chatted with you and D. wink Can't wait to see photos of Bath, Stonehenge and Windsor Castle!
Ginnie Hart: Ohhhh, thank you, Ruth! How sweet to know of that connection when we chatted while in the taxi to Heathrow. I can hardly wait to show pics of those fabulous places. What a memory!

Very nicely done Gramma Ginn. I think the quirky angle adds a nice little touch to the photo, much better than a straight forward, upright shot. Nice one. Kindest regards, Neil.-x-
Ginnie Hart: You're very kind, Neil, to take my angle as intended. I decided to straighten the vane itself and let the building fall where it may! smile
Nice shot! I haven't been to London is maybe 15 years and am looking forward to the shots from there!
