Well done Ginnie. Now that looks like a typical Aussie Bar-B-Q, the guys all grouped together, not a female in sight. Only thing missing is the cold beers in their hands.
Ginnie Hart: I think all the gals were inside the kitchen at that moment, Aussie, except for me. smile And I didn't see one beer, believe it or not!

Another very fine piece of montage work, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Ray. Now I need to figure out how to make a black background and do what Steve did today, which I like much better!
Great to meet the boys.
Ginnie Hart: I totally agree, Mary. smile
i can only begin to imagine how long its taken u to put this together Ginnie. But hey look on the bright side, u r by now a maestro at collages wink
Ginnie Hart: HA! I definitely feel like I'm miles ahead of where I was on Monday! grin Thanks, Deji.
Hmmmm that face looks familar, (that very black dude w/glasses in the middle below}...LoL!

Lovely organisation here Granny...wish i was there, would have been so nice to meet you all. Anyways, there's always a next time smile
Ginnie Hart: Yes, next time, NaCha. Be there or be square. smile
Yup here we all are lol .....thanks Ginnie smile

I see you are enjoying this Ginnie wink
Ginnie Hart: Yes, Etomi, I am, even if I did complain a bit on Monday!!! smile Thanks.

superbe
Ginnie Hart: You're a sweethear, O-P. Thanks.
Well done Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Chris. smile
Nice one Ginnie ....
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Shakara! smile
Hamilton. Thats the one i never got to talk to. Ginne you will become the fist lady of the collage very soon at this rate. Its excellent. And me again. I feel special. Loving it. Hopefully next time the ladies will turn out more than the dudes. Thanks Ginnie . You are a gem
Ginnie Hart: HA! I still have so much to learn, Busola. Did you see Steve's today! I still need to learn how to make my background black. His is exactly how I want to do it. But you're a sweetheart anyway. Thanks.
Thansk for all your hard work Ginnie.Its great to meet all these people. Must have been so much fun.
Ginnie Hart: You're welcome, Gale. It really was fun, in spite of my complaining. The guys were all worth it. smile
Esto es una magnífica idea! Es la mejor forma de poner caras a los blogs. Es difícil, retener en la memoria todas las personas que estamos en Shutterchance. Ahora vosotros ya os conocéis... deberíamos hacer una miniguía con todos nuestros retratos LOL !!

This is a magnificent idea! It is the best form to put faces to blogs. It is difficult, to retain in the memory all the people who we are in Shutterchance. Now you already know yourselves... we would have to make a miniguide with all our pictures LOL! wink
Ginnie Hart: I'm so glad we all now have faces with the names and photos, Jose. That made the whole trip worth it!!! Thanks.

This is priceless. What a lot of handsome men, my goodness. And more importantly, they look smart, fun and nice. I know they appreciate all the work you did here, and so do I. It's wonderful. And thanks to the guys and ladies for letting us see their lovely mugs!
Ginnie Hart: It was so fun, Ruth. Now I need to figure out how Steve did his collage today with the black background. That's exactly what I want to do. Thanks for your loving support and encouragement!

Ginnie Hart: My fav is definitely the one of Suby. I actually have another good one of him. Will have to put it up sometime. smile Thanks, Susan.

A little story about collage/montage - reminded by that middle group shot. About 10 years ago I was making one of the family - focussed on the 4 children. It included some group pictures and each kid was spread over her/his lifetime as it was at the time. To this day I don't know why - but I counted the number of times each kid appeared in the whole collection. I even replaced some pictures to make sure each one appeared in the frame the same number of times. BTW this job was using printed photos and a frame with something like 20 different shaped holes in it.
Anyhow when it finally hung on the wall the youngest boy came up to me, demanding why he appears less times than his older sister. I got them all together and we sat down and counted each child's number of appearances.

So now - there are 7 guys in the middle photo and 10 thumbnails. So why did you leave out some like Marcello or Busola? grin

Great collage!
Ginnie Hart: I love the story, Louis. And believe it or not, I purposely picked the photo that had the most number of people in it, even though some others were better. I still can't believe no one ever thought of taking a group shot!!!

As always, thanks for your encouragement. Did you see Steve's collage today? That's what I want to do, with a black background, but I haven't figured it out yet---to change the background color in PS. Onwards and upwards!
Nice to see the faces that go with the blogs and names
Ginnie Hart: I agree, Chantal! Thanks.

Thanks for bringing us the faces behind the blogs, Ginnie.

You've really got into this montage thing!
Ginnie Hart: You're kind, Bill. I still have so much more to learn...like doing Steve's black background collage on his site today!
well done Ginnie, finally I can put faces to those shutterchance names.
Ginnie Hart: Yes, Dotun. Me, too!!! smile
Ginnie, the whole series is a beautiful collection of portraits. You even managed to mae me look better than in person! Great! smile
Ginnie Hart: You were/are GREAT in person, Marcello. I just wish I had spent more time with you and your gorgeous wife, Erminia. I have no good pics of her. But I actually did get several good ones of you. smile
Hi Ginnie,

Greetings JoAnn smile
Ginnie Hart: You are a sweetheart, JoAnn, and very encouraging. I want to do the same thing but with a black background. I just have to learn how. Once I learn, it'll feel more natural to me.

Yesterday was a wonderful day for me! Thank you again for the time and energy you spent in being my tour guide!
Great to be able to put faces to names. Thanks for sharing this, Ginnie. All the best, Dave.

Ginnie Hart: Now that's an idea, Moi Moi. No reason to do it just once a year! Thanks.

Ginnie, thanks for letting us know what our wonderful friends look like! Your collages are well composed and framed. Very professional too! wink
Ginnie Hart: You are so very welcome, dear Kay. I learned a lot about collages from this meet-up and hopefully will just get better the next time. smile Thank you.
Great series of portraits, Ginnie. You are really good at this! So nice to see all these beautiful Shutterchance faces!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Suzanne, for backtracking to here. It's really important to me to be able to visualize people I communicate with! (So, do you have a self-portrait up on your site???)
Thanx for sharing this Ginnie. Its nice to see the faces behind those lenses that bring out such amazing shots smile
Ginnie Hart: Welcome back, Thomas! I agree--I love visualizing people when I see their photos or read their comments. Thanks for backtracking to here.
