Friday Dreams


In Sorrento it was a guy with his fishing pole and pink cap!
Here in Burano, Italy, an island 7km away from Venice in the Venetian Lagoon, it's a turquoise fishing net at sunset.

Catch them any way you can!

Ooooo...but the low-angle sun, lighting up the red-brick wall at low tide, is what lets this simple scene become such an impressive panorama, Ginnie.
Beautiful sight!
Ginnie Hart: It felt a bit like magic when I saw it, Ray. You saw it, too, I see! Thank you.

Ginnie I'm not sure why but the water just looks unreal, like a mirage. Like the productive atmosphere of the fisherman.

Guess who carn't sleepwink tongue
Ginnie Hart: You'd have your diving gear on in a split second, Tracy, I know! smile I think he was wrapping up the day, taking the nets apart. I wish I could have watched him longer. We were passing by in our tourist boat. Thanks.

The water looks glass like, apt for Venice I suppose, well caught Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Venice is new to me, Les, so I'll have to take your word for it. The whole experience was wonderful! Thanks.

superb shot. I envy you. I wish i could travel and take pictures like you.
Ginnie Hart: I wish you could, too, Kanyi. Maybe when you're 62??? smile Thank you kindly.

Prachtige foto, the colour of the briques and the water, superb capture! You have a great eye for detail, I like the way you've cropped it and to Rags, wouldn't we all tongue
LOL at Tracy,I know somebody else with the same problem grin
Ginnie Hart: As I told Rags, I wish you could, too...maybe when you're 62?? But then, that's not too far away for you! grin

Thank you, Astrid, for your kinds words, as always. Tracy, you and I need to get together for a slumber party some time! HA!
Nice shot Ellie. The red bick wall gives a nice panorama effect
Ginnie Hart: Ginnie is honored to be called Ellie, Richard. smile Tracy was doing that today with someone else, so it must mean it's Friday and we're READY FOR THE WEEKEND! Thank you kindly.

I like the colours, especially the briques-red and the turquoise fishing net and water of the Lagoon, this every life scene becomes transfigured (see Tracy) by the sunset!
Ginnie Hart: HA! We do crazy things when we're transfigured, Philine. grin Thank you kindly.

Gorgeous light on those bricks, beautifully captured Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: It was that magic hour which we all love, Aussie. Thank you.
That time of day is so perfect for photos. The water is splendid. I know it's probably cold bit it looks inviting.
Ginnie Hart: I love that time of the day, Mary. It's magical. We were lucky that that's when our boat was arriving in Burano! Thanks.

what great colour...i love that brick wall too for some reason
Ginnie Hart: I do, too, David. It had a embankment just above it where people were, so I just cropped it down. Looked better, I thought. Thanks.

The patterns and colors of the red brick framing the ripped and light on the water are quite lovely, Ginnie.

I love watching fishermen...what a life huh?
Ginnie Hart: What a life is right, Kathryn, especially if it's for pleasure. If it's their livelihood, I guess they are totally dependent on Mother Nature and their own fishing skills! Thank you.

Great framing and very colourful. Maybe fish are colourblind or not sensitive to colour. That would shake flyfishermen out of some beliefs.

Interesting camouflage on the boat's motor
Ginnie Hart: Hmmm. Good question about fish, if they're colorblind. I think some of them like the colorful lures, so maybe not? I thought that motor was interesting as well. Who do they want to fool, I wonder? smile Thanks, Louis, as always!

very good composition and dito color

Sorry I haven't been round all week - too much emotional stuff on my mind...
Ginnie Hart: So sorry about the "emotional stuff," Chantal. Hopefully you'll have a relaxing, calming weekend! Thanks for stopping by.
Good light in this one...like the colour of the net and how I can find the same colour in the reflections in the water...it's a nice combo to the red background
Ginnie Hart: There was no way I could convert this one to B&W, Aksel...for the reasons you've described. Thanks.

Looks as if he's happy enough catching the right amount for a restaurant. Good capture Ginnie smile
Ginnie Hart: Makes you wonder if this is his livelihood, Ellie. Maybe so! Thanks.

These colors are actually rather muted for Burano!
Ginnie Hart: HA! You're right about that, Martin. Thanks.

All the colors jump, except for that motor, at least I think it's a motor because I can't really see it since it's camouflaged.

grin
Ginnie Hart: HA! You're too funny, Ruth! I love it. Thanks.
Wonderful colours, and a well-caught scene!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Wim. I assume you'll be at the Spui on Sunday??

I didn't notice the net at first Ginnie cos I was transfixed by the amazing red of that wall!
Ginnie Hart: That's funny, Bill. smile Glad you eventually saw it. Thanks.
I like this idea of low impact fishing. The photograph is awesome, love the glowing red brick, and the line of seaweed. The colour of the water is wonderful, too, picking up the colour of the net. (:o)
Ginnie Hart: Low-impact fishing! I like that, Roz. And you even noticed the seaweed! smile Thanks a million.
Given you arrived late in the day it looks like you made full use of the remaining light, another good shot.

I see they have even colour coded the seaweed to be just the right complementary green for the bricks.
Ginnie Hart: HA! You and Roz both noticed the seaweed. Good for you,Mike. smile Thanks.

That outboard has seen some service...good catch Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: How did you know it was and outboard, Chris??? It's camouflaged! smile Thanks.
Hi Ginnie, Nice again your photography as always, and did they catch the fish? Yes ? I hope so for them...

I posted again some Paris Pics in case you are interested, just visit my blog and looksmileI wish you a good weekend

Greetings JoAnnsmile
Ginnie Hart: I never saw the fish, JoAnn, so I can only hope they had a good catch. smile Thanks.

Aren't the mediterranean colours magnificent??!
smile I like that stripe of orange of the brick wall where the slime hanging above the line water line. The glow on the water gives the final touch to this great pallete of colours.
Interesting detail of the fishing arts!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, José-Angel!
