Not in MY Coffee House

This is for Johnny G!

Alright, before you draw any conclusions, this is for Johnny because he's the only one who has teasingly asked if I've gone to one of Amsterdam's Coffee Houses yet!

No, I haven't.  But I've seen them around.  And wouldn't you know, one of those times I was looking down (not up) while crossing a bike path, this is what I found. 

Any further questions, Johnny?

Oh you little sweet heart I can't stop laughing smile No Ginnie no futher questions ! smile By the way have a hotdog for me while your in my city, that and real pizzas are the things I miss most. Have fun you two.

Ginnie Hart: I thought you'd get a nice laugh, Johnny. grin

Tonight we're gonna have pizza for you and later a hotdog, another day. I'll be thinking of you both times.
ahhh nice dime bag ginnie are you sure you didn't drop that yourself wink after all it was 4:20 on friday and it seems pretty coincidental you'd be posting this shot.....ahhmm (just teasing). is this some of your selective colouring? if so youve done a superb job of it. it works very well with the shot!
Ginnie Hart: HA! I'm quite sure I didn't drop that bag myself, Genevieve, but I don't mind a good bit of suspense about it! smile And yes, I converted it to mono and then added the color back to the leaf, just as it was on the bag. Thanks.
Amazing details on the ground ! You're always travelling !! Lucky you !! smile
Ginnie Hart: Yes, always, Florence. I do feel very lucky!!!
Great texture and detail in this one
Nice shot smile
Ginnie Hart: Thanks a million, Magnus.
Ginnie - this is sort of embarassing! You are going to have to explain! I kind of know what you are referring to but don't get the significance of the little plastic bag. Everyone else seems to get it!
Ginnie Hart: You have nothing to be embarrassed about, PP, because I'm usually totally clueless about such things until someone enlightens me. If you click on the Coffee Houses link in my text above, it'll explain things better but essentially these are "legal" places in Amsterdam where you're allowed to smoke pot/marajauna/hash.
Ginnie,
Hah! You have such a great sense of humor about you! Good job. I guess this "plant" is something one finds a lot of in Amsterdam!
Ginnie Hart: If we can't take a joke, Kay, right??!! grin

Well, I have no idea how plentiful this plant is in A'dam but I'm guessing a lot, based on how many comments I hear about it! But you don't need to worry about me. smile
Wacky stuff Ginnie wink
Ginnie Hart: That's what I've heard, Chris. smile

Very interesting idea, provocative a bit smile I like the tones of your picture, have you converted it to B&W sparing only green bit? Good job!
Ginnie Hart: Yes, Monika, I converted it to mono and then did the selective coloring on the leaf, just as it was on the bag. smile

grin Great find! Will you tell us if you try it someday?
Ginnie Hart: HA! I think you can safely say, Julia, that I'll never try it. It's just not my cuppa tea. grin But I do think there may be virtue in the medicinal value of the plant and have certain sympathy with those who fight for that.
LOL...the first thing I thought of I wondered if it was your empty bag LOL..Ha! Good shot! Gave me a giggle today!
Ginnie Hart: Glad I could mke you giggle today, DD, even if it's not MY bag. smile
nice selective colouring...made me smile grin...
Ginnie Hart: Always glad to bring a smile, Sam. smile
The green colour really stands out smile
Ginnie Hart: I guess someone would think so, Aksel. grin

Ginnie Hart: Thanks, O-P. smile
That really cool !!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Shakara.

Me likes, good use of selective colir.

Suby
Ginnie Hart: HA! Thanks, Suby. grin
Lol smile
Like very much the work here ! A good one Ginnie !
Ginnie Hart: Thanks you kindly, Sir Zeb.
Was it empty when you found it? smile Have fun in NYC. It actually should be pretty nice this time of the year.
Ginnie Hart: You really want to know, Martin? grin (Yes, it was empty!!!)

We're having a blast thus far in NYC. Can't believe how much we've seen in our first 2 days and now we're getting ready to go out on the town again!
That's so funny! I always try to look down when I'm traveling because you never know what you'll see. Found art, right? smile
Ginnie Hart: So they call this art, Mad? grin I guess so, then.
Ah, very funny. grin
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHAHAHA! grin

Ginnie Hart: HA! Maybe you're right, Layeni.
Lovely texture on this, Ginn. I've spent a couple of "afternoons" (I think that translates to 3 or 4 days...), in Coffee Houses in Amsterdam, incredibly enjoyable, just sitting, putting the world to rights or simply watching cool videos. If you have the time you should go in and just breath in the atmosphere...lol.
Ginnie Hart: HA! This sounds like an unabashed "confession," Andrew. I love it. If ever I have the guts to do it, you'll be the first to know. grin
