The New-Fangled Way

Yesterday's post was the old-fashioned way.  Today's is the save-your-muscles way!

You can't see the truck down below but I wonder how much it costs to rent or to get stuff delivered this way?!  I'm guessing it's the wave of the future.

[Today I fly from Amsterdam back to Atlanta.]

Wow Ginnie. I think you should pioneer a road miles card. How do you get arround this much. Im beginning to doubt your age. You certainly dont look it.
Ginnie Hart: HA! I think I told you once before that flattery will get you everywhere, Busola! grin

Almost every trip I take is with frequent-flyer miles from all of Donica's travels! I'm very lucky.

one thing I like in your shots is the clarity....lovely shot.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you very much, Dotun. That means a lot coming from you.

Must have cost an arm and a leg grin

Suby
Ginnie Hart: That's what I'd like to find out, Suby. Hmmm. Maybe I'll do some research on it!

I love this new modern method...it makes me not worry so much for the people moving the heavy objects. smile Great picture Ginnie (as always)! I've learned so much about Amsterdam, and can't wait to go there.
Ginnie Hart: It DOES feel safer, Kay, doesn't it! I hadn't thought about that as much as just how easier it would be! I hope you DO come to Amsterdam some day...when I'm there, please. Wouldn't that be funny if I met you there instead of in the States! smile
This is a nother great capture! Never seen anything like it. Thanks for sharing...

p.s. thanks for the comment you left on my p-blog on father's day! Cheers...
Ginnie Hart: It's fun to see new stuff like this, isn't it, H! Glad you like it.
c'est amusant cette série.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, O-P!
LOL, that's cheating! Or maybe progress. Another informative shot that shows a glimpse of how the Dutch to things (efficiently for the most part).
Ginnie Hart: It's almost too easy indeed, Martin. I know what you mean!
The shot has nice diagonals.
Ginnie Hart: Ha! Gotta watch those diagonals, Wim. grin Thanks.
Intersting machinary !! A beautiful shot..
Ginnie Hart: Don't you love to see how things work, Shakara?! I do! Thanks.
Cool way to do it! Sharp, detailed, nicely composed shot Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks a million, Bridge.

Very clear documentary photo. Do you see a lot of this going on around the city?
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Ruth. I would say I see the old/new way at least once every trip while out on my walks. Sometimes I try not to be too obvious when I just stand and watch. I bet they wonder what this old woman is doing, especially when I start taking pics of them. smile

I wonder if they can move a baby grand this way? I once saw them move such a piano with the pulley and rope method. Quite a do.

Great picture to answer all the questions. Have a nice flight and hope the dog you left behind Atlanta still recognises you.
Ginnie Hart: That dog, Louis, is only a figment of your imagination. grin

But you're right about this new-fangled way. Can it move anything??
I've never seen anything like it before - how bizzare!
Ginnie Hart: Pretty nifty, right, Bernie. smile
Hi Ginnie. Now that's what I can moving in style. I have a top floor flat that has five flights of stairs and would kill for one of these to deliver the shopping! LOL Mike
Ginnie Hart: LOL, indeed, Mike. Wouldn't that be a hoot if we all had our own personal vehical for such times! smile

This is great. The key to this being the best way to move is indicated by the fact that someone else is doing it smile
Ginnie Hart: HA! You're right, Roger!! smile
lol, how close were the two shots to each other?
Ginnie Hart: Believe it or not, Sam, both shots were taken the same day about 15 minutes apart while out on a walk....obviously in the same general neck of the woods in Amsterdam.
Like the swap with this of yesterday smile smile
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Zeb. As I told Sam, these two moves were taking place in the same general neighborhood where I was walking, about 15 minutes apart.
As long as it's someone else doing the work, I like the old way. wink
Ginnie Hart: HA! I think I agree with you on that, Red Pen. There's something more exciting and captivating about the ole heave-ho! smile
Wooow,,you're right Ginnie it's very differnt then yesterday,,it's radical changes of way, so funny when seen this because this is unique moment and we can'nt find in other place, esp. in my place.
Maybe The people in my place will upset and get shock when they find the truck and stuff delivered or entered to their House hahaha wink
Ginnie Hart: Yes, Dudee. Both systems are very different from what we see here in the States as well. Very educational. smile

Be a great way to move a piano! Nice shot!
Ginnie Hart: I think so, Helen! As long as the window is big enough. smile

You still need pretty generously sized windows to get the stuff in at all. It's really fascinating. At least there at still SOME things globalisation hasn't managed to do away with. We did distinctiveness.
Ginnie Hart: Yes, Jimbo, you're right. This is clearly a situation where architecture determines everything! Those inside narrow, spiral staircases have had their challenges overcome, it appears!
Interesting machine, I guess a lot of people in the world wants one for Christmas smile - not sure about the crop on this one though....
Ginnie Hart: HA! I'm sure everyone wants access to one for free in Amsterdam!

I quibbled between 2 pics on the crop, Aksel, and decided on this one. You would probably like the other one better but it wasn't as close up. Decisions, decisions! sad
Ginnie! Now speaking in serious. You always watch upwards when you take a walk? wink
Ginnie Hart: Yes, Jose. I think some of my best photo ops are when I look up. smile Thanks.

that's quite a conveyor belt. much better than hauling a couch up a narrow stairway.
Ginnie Hart: Yes it is, Alex. Thanks, and welcome back!
