Capri Blue

What a messed-up jumbo of color!
But, sister Ruth, this blue is for you!

OH! And I get the first comment too! Whoohoo! grin

This chaos of boats, so cute, colorful and clearly used, is just delightful. Thank you for the dedicated blue!
Ginnie Hart: It may not be the same blue as your favorite Chartres windows, but I still thought of you, Ruth! Thanks.
I can see all my primary colors here, I like.
Ginnie Hart: And that's the truth, Dotun! smile Thanks.

More amazing colors! Is it just me, or are today's photos on shutterchance really colorful? I like your composition here, Ginnie - it has an old world feel to it that really works.
Ginnie Hart: It's funny how you can look at something like boats and immediately tell if it's from your side of the world or not. It's NOT from my side of the world in America, for sure! Thanks, Jewlya.

darn! I thought "chaos of Boats", and Ruth beat me to it.

Love this black boat, with it blue inside...it was involved in an accident, two years back, that crushed its back end; rather than putting it down, its caring owner surgically removed the back end and gave what was left a new stern; it can still enjoy a functional, happy life, but looks a little odd now with 30% of its body missing.

Thanks, Ginnie....great fun!
Ginnie Hart: HA! The stories you spin and weave throughout SC. I think you missed one of your callings, Ray. Actually, you didn't miss it since you're using it to the enjoyment of us all. You and Louis could go into business together. smile

Thanks, Ray, as always.

It should be chaos of saw horses, I have never seen so many in the one spot and the owner has painted them all the same colour as the inside of the boat.
Ginnie Hart: As someone later has said, there must have been a sale on that color of paint! grin Thanks, Aussie.

Thats one cool looking mini boat!
Ginnie Hart: Lots of mini boats, Kanyi, which makes me wonder what they're used for! Thanks.

This cruise serie makes me curious Ginnie...how many photo's did you take during your travel? lol Bet everybody on board knew you as the lady with the camera...smile
Ginnie Hart: HA! You're so right, Petra. It was so fun. I probably took at least 5000 photos and transferred them every day to my laptop and started deleting many of them whenever I have an hour or two to spare here and there. I had my external hard drive with me and parked them all there, which really helped!
Well spotted Ginnie once again ! I wonder if the half boat is sailing smile
Ginnie Hart: I wonder so many things about those boats, Zeb. What are they used for??? Thanks.
j'aime beaucoup cette "pagaille" en couleur!
Ginnie Hart: I do, too, O-P. Thanks. smile
Hmm! So much to look at in this one. Initially you are struck by the fabulous, strong colour, but there is so much more in the photograph. Wonderful crisp detail, so many textures too. My personal highlight is that coil of black rope - it would have been so easy to lose the detail in it. (:o)
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Roz. The first word that came to mind was "cacophony." But it didn't look as harsh as that word sounded. It seems so full of life! Thanks.
Lovely colour composition Ginnie - never been to Capri, but that particular colour of blue always reminds me of the mediterranean and greece in particular.
Ginnie Hart: Yes, indeed, Mike. It looked like something we DON'T see in America, for sure! Thanks.

Heck ... They know how to spread the mid-blue paint around. It looks like 'organised chaos' Ginnie ... Just like the work surface in my study! The boat in the fore-ground is a real nugget. richard.
Ginnie Hart: 'Organized chaos' is exactly what this looks like, Richard. I totally agree. smile Thanks.

wonderful colours in a wonderful chaotic surrounding!
Ginnie Hart: It's so full of life being lived to the hilt, Philine! Thank you.
As previously said: What a chaos!
Blue seems to be the favourite colour of the owner of these boats. Even the boats supports are blue. Nice shot Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: As someone later said, there must have been a sale on that blue paint. smile Thanks, Richard.

Very colourful composition Ginnie. Such a large rope for a little boat.
Ginnie Hart: HA! I know, Tracy. I can picture you here having a ball! smile
Interesting shot !! It doea look like organised chaos .. Nice colours.
Ginnie Hart: It sure does, Shakara. Thanks. smile
A splendid jumble Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir!

Guess it's low tide ! Love the colors !
Ginnie Hart: You're probably right, Ferdi. It was a nice little harbor closed in on 3 sides. Thanks.

Great colors here and a very multifaceted photo, Ginnie!

Nice big splash of colour Ginnie. You may find a few boats on mine over the next week or two!
Ginnie Hart: Great. We can compare boats, Bill! grin Thanks.

so this is the cruise liner then Ginnie? You did well to get back safe and sound, You must be really fit now, rowing that thing half way round the world! grin

All the best. mal
Ginnie Hart: You know that they actually make rowing machines for exercise, Mal. In this case, we decided to go for the real thing. HA!

Following on from Mal's comments I guessyour cabin must have had a seaview Ginnie...
Ginnie Hart: Yes, it did, Bernie! But in this case, we went on a smaller boat excursion to Capri from Naples. I was actually on the beach walking around midst all this chaos when I took the photo. Thanks.

Ginnie, that blue is so very nice blue, when we meet you know why.......this chaos is well captured (as always dear lady) LOL at Mal, I had the same 'bad' thought, I pictured you and Donica rowing like crazy to keep up with the others, but I do think the fisherman got the paint on sale tongue
Ginnie Hart: Okay, so I'll keep this color blue in my mind for when I see you, Astrid. smile And LOL at picturing Donica and me rowing like mad to keep up with the ship. I can see it now. grin Thanks a million, Astrid.

Lovely small boat shot Ginnie - it's just about impossible to take a bad picture when there are boats around. I bet you had to ration yourself round here as there must have been so many image opportunities. David.
Ginnie Hart: You of all people would know, David. Guess I was inspired by you! Thanks.
I like the blue colours and the chaos smile
Ginnie Hart: I do, too, Aksel. Thanks.
This is a real electric blue Ginnie !!
Ginnie Hart: Yes, it is, Flo! Thanks.
What a jumble. Lots of lovely colours and textures to feast the eyes on. Nice one.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks a million, Ingrid.

You know what I just don't understand? How come no matter how tattered the boat looks that color blue is as vibrant as the day they painted it. Lovely shot Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Isn't that the truth, Scarlet! I agree. Thanks.

Well ray said it all - that little thing that looks like the cut-off nose of a real boat tickles my pink. It must be the 'smart' of boats.

So who did you meet on the Isle of Capri?
Ginnie Hart: Between you and Ray, I could write a book! smile Thanks, Louis.

Didn't meet a soul, except maybe my own, Louis!

Coo, three's heaps going on here, loads to look at and the blue pulls it all together nicely.

Come on now, where was this, and did you see the people working on their boats?
Ginnie Hart: This was on the shore of the little harbor in Capri where our hydrofoil arrived from Naples, Ellie. It was very calm around these boats but quite busy on the little street nearby. Thanks.
For my also he is this blue one! Very good composition!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir!
