This is great! One of my favourites of all your beautiful portfolio, Ginnie.
It is rich in colours and detail, and is a fine study of a little-known architectural masteroiece of Rome.
Love it.
Ginnie Hart: It always interests me, Ray, what photos do to different people. I almost didn't put this one up, but I'm glad I did...for YOU! smile Thanks.

Hi, it is my first time visiting your photoblog.
I do agree with Ray abour colors. I love this kind of resindence areas!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Shahrooz, for stopping by and commenting!
Maybe that is the laundry hung out by Pompeia (Julius Caeser's wife). "I just can't get that blood out.
Ginnie Hart: HA! I love your imagination, Michael! smile Thanks.

Ginnie dit is hartstikke goed and much more than that, these details are exquisite, the laundry, the blue-ish curtain in the right window, the warm orange/brown wall, the leaking flower pots against the wall, stunning atmosphere here !!!!
Ginnie Hart: I don't think you left anything out, Astrid, but I'm going to go back and check, just to make sure! grin You are such a sweethart! Dank je wel!

A typically nice daily- life scenery in a back-yuard, the windows are closed, but some hours later, in the evening or.. there might be "high life", een laughing and chattering from one window to the other... I can hear it...
Ginnie Hart: Awww. I like that thought, Philine. You know how to bring a scene alive! Thank you.

Nice colors for a not so nice place ... I wouldn't love living there, but the way you took the photo gives it a kind of charm ...
Ginnie Hart: I have a feeling there's more charm there than we know, Ann. I guess it's the inside that counts. smile Thanks.

Sheer delight Ginnie what a corker. So much to look at and my mind just runs away into all those different houses and what lies within..smile
Great colouring and textures, well spotted.smile
Ginnie Hart: You sure know how to make this come alive, Tracy! Thank you!!

Fantastic colour on the orange wall, you can see the result of having nicely watered plants on the lower half. Nice capture Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: You have a good eye, Aussie, Thanks for your nice observation. smile

Rich with the feel of the city centers of Europe. Nicely done, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: There's nothing like Europe, Kathryn! You know that as well as I do!!! Thanks.
Very nice picture Ginnie. I like the colours, the lines, the windows reflections...there are many a lot of details to look at. A very mediterranean way to dry clothes
Ginnie Hart: There seemed to be a hodge-podge of things in this picture, Richard, which drew me to it. Thanks for seeing it, too!

Is this still Pompeii? You'd have thought they would be dry by now wink

It's a jolly good, somehow typical, scene from Europe. It's always amazed me how people dry their washing in other countries.
Ginnie Hart: No, Ellie. Not Pompeii but Rome. You're too funny. I could do a whole series just on laundry hanging outside throughout the Mediterranean! Thanks.

This has a lot of character!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Martin.
Truth that remembers in certain form the zone of the Boulevards of Barcelona, where the houses are old and the narrow streets? Very good urban photo. I like!
Ginnie Hart: Oh yes, José Angel. This could also be Barcelona! Thank you.

I agree that the harmony of colors makes this image just pop, wow, so pleasing! I want to keep staring. And I always find in scenes like this how appealing it is to see the decay of the outside of the buildings, but know from the sparkling windows and well tended planters that the inside of these homes is likely impeccable. There is a lot of satisfaction in that, for some reason.
Ginnie Hart: I know what you mean, Ruth. This is a case when the outside can be so deceiving! Thanks.
Nice one Ginnie.It reflects unseen side of life.
Ginnie Hart: Yes, it does, Gishan. But it was out in the open, which is what surprised me the most! Thanks.

has nobody noticed that you are 400 years old - oops 400 images old Ginnie?.....grin

a fine day to air you dirty washing to, super shot and a well noticed graphic and colourful image to take.

Well done on the 400 Ginnie, I bet that I have only posted 35/30 shots since your 300! lol

mal
Ginnie Hart: Awwwww. YOU did, Mal, and that's all that counts! Thanks.

Actually, Astrid noticed and told me this morning, bless her. I knew it was coming up soon but wasn't paying attention. I'm not used to celebrating 100s but 365s. smile

For you, quality is better than quantity!!!
This is very good, colours, lines, reflection...it's difficult to explain but this is one of the best pics I've seen this week
Ginnie Hart: That is a compliment that totally humbles me, Aksel. Thank you, kind sir.

A daily scene but full of interest Ginnie smile
Ginnie Hart: That's what I thought, Chris. Thanks.
Hi my dear, Rome..... in one word FANTASTIC! You know I lived there for 6 years? A great photo, made by you, just how Rome's character is! I wonder where this is, in Trastevere?

I showed today a slideshow with photo's and music from, "the left behind and lost things" on the streets, right the opposite of rich Christmas, everybody seemed to have money enough these days... Just look and see if you like it, Bye see you and enjoy yourselfsmile
Ginnie Hart: No, I did not know/remember that you lived in Rome, JoAnn! What a memory that must be! Thanks.
The colors; the composition, the textures. Well done, Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Wim!
