yet another window smile If I was told that I'd meet a photographer who specialised in windows, I'd snort in disbelief...

It's got the Ginnie stamp there :p
Window! Love it!!
Ginnie Hart: I do like windows and doors, Abisola, and have a week's worth of them for the start of 2008! Glad you like them. Thank you.
I like the tones and the way the snow dusts everything.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Larry. It had just snowed 3 inches, so I HAD to go out and snap away.

This is a good wintry capture. I think I'd rather be inside.
Ginnie Hart: It was cozy inside but it was fun to be outside, too. I LOVE the snow and miss that we don't have it here in Atlanta...or Amsterdam! Thanks, Martin.
It makes you want to walk up to it and peak in but at the same time it makes you feel so alone.
Ginnie Hart: Windows can have that affect, Johnny. I know what you mean. Thanks.
Very unique shot. I like the contrasting color of the window and stones. The snow adds a nice touch too. Nice image.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, John, for stopping by!

I love the colors in this photo!
Ginnie Hart: It's such an unusual color for a barn, Helen, isn't it! I love it, too. Thanks.

This is some detailed picture again, love how the snow is blown into the corners, great colouring, the crop is great, a likey to me, *sigh* this is only the 2nd of January, I wonder what you will show us the next 364 days, I bet more of these stunning pictures, nice job here Ginnie (BTW 2008 has 366 days, I was wrong there).
Ginnie Hart: Yes, an extra day for 2008, in case we don't get all the other 365 exactly right, I guess. grin

You are way too flattering, mijn vriend. I wonder what YOU could do with this barn! But thank you nonetheless. You know that your support means the world to me. Dank je wel.
This is real eye-candy for me. Beautifully composed, of course, but it is the detail which holds my attention. The diffent shades of colour in those beautiful stones, the evergreen clinging on, the snow gathering in the corners of the window - just fantastic. (:o)
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Roz. You've noticed all the things that are important to me as well.
This barn is very photogenic!
Ginnie Hart: That it is, Etomi! Thanks.

Is that almost a self portrait in the window? Love the colours and dusting of snow.
Ginnie Hart: Both you and Blackdog/Mike have noticed the self-portrait, which even I didn't notice till you mentioned it. DUH! Good eyes, Aussie!
Very nice composition Ginnie. I like the colours contrast and the brightness
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Richard. I love this barn!

I love the snow touch here Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: I do, too, Scarlet! Do you think we'll get a touch of snow in AMS????
An appropriate photo too: A happy and healthy New Year for you & Donica and all yours!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks a million, Wim. The same to YOU and yours, of course. I'm sure I'll see you again one day soon. Is the art market closed now till March??

Whoever chose the colour for the woodwork did a good job, the sea green brings out the pinks in the stonework a treat. Photographer in blue coat does a pretty good job too ;o) Wish we had had some snow ;o(
Ginnie Hart: I declare, Mike, but you sure do have eagle eyes! I did NOT see my self-portrait till Aussie mentioned it. I must be blinder than a bat!! And yes, that's my cobalt blue coat, so you are right! Here's looking at you. smile

The barn color was that same color when Don and Ruth bought the house. I LOVE it. It's what makes it ALIVE for me.

The texture and colour of the stone work is a great contrast to the green window and the vegitation. See you got yourself in the shot too Ginnie!!smile
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHA. Yes, Tracy. I got myself in and didn't even know it till you SCers saw me. It must have been subliminal! smile Thank you, as always.

I love pictures of windows - this is a great one. Vibrant colour and lots of good detail and texture together with an air of mystery - what lies within?
Ingrid
Ginnie Hart: That's what I love about this barn, Ingrid. It's FULL of mystery! Thank you.

Looks cold at sister Ruths.
Ginnie Hart: Cold and with 11 more inches of snow since yesterday!! Thanks, Roger.

What for a wonderful green-turquoise colour of the wood! A fairy-tale atmosphere, evoced by snow, tendrils (Ranken) and especially the window which seems to be a little 'blind'; I'm not sure if it would be possible to look out and to look in, but it doesn't matter! The mystery becomes in this way quite bigger! In general there is a feeling of being cold and warm all together! A beautiful wintertime-pic!
Ginnie Hart: Being cold and warm altogether is a nice way to describe this, Philine. I agree. Maybe we can go have a cuppa teas now! smile Thank you kindly.
beautiful composition Ginnie, that dusting of snow just finishes it off,smile
Ginnie Hart: It was the 3-inch dusting of snow that got me out of the house, Tim, to see what I could discover. smile I miss the snow so much from when I grew up in it. I'm afraid we don't get it in Atlanta or Amsterdam, except maybe once in a blue moon!

I agree with everyone Ginnie, looks idyllic, well done, as usual. Hapy new year to you and Donica. (Not sure if I've ever told you but your partners name is spelled phonetically like a gaelic Irish boys name, Donnachadh.)
Ginnie Hart: Awww. Thanks for that little fun tidbit, Dave, on Donica's name. It's an unusual name, to be sure. smile I always tell people it's just like "Monica" except with a 'D.' smile

Lovely shot Ginnie. You should have given us a wave smile
Ginnie Hart: HA! I'll remember that the next time, Bill. grin Thanks.

I would like to look in smile
(I'm back and I have a very special wish for you: may 2008 be a place where you can reach the impossible and make wonders with all possible things...and keep sowing beauty on our eyes smile)
Ginnie Hart: Your wish is dear to my heart, Lina. Thank you for your kind sentiment! We make a good Mutual Admiration Society. smile

Lovely shot...I imagine the people inside to be sitting by a fireplace drinking hot rum or something. Love it.
Ginnie Hart: That sounds good, Justin! smile Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

Warmer inside than out by the look of things Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Nor by much, Chris, but the idea counts. smile Thanks.

Yes, the snow is up to the glass today, but at least you got snow! I love this, it's fun to see the place through your eye and lens. smile

Afraid it isn't any warmer inside though . . .
Ginnie Hart: I can't believe how much more snow you've gotten since this shot, Ruth! It IS fun to see how we see the same things through different eyes. Thanks for letting me show off your place. smile

The shutter is closed this time smile I love it that you northerners are not afraid of blogging all the nice winterscapes this season.

Great picture and composition.
Ginnie Hart: I'm one of those Northerners who misses scenes like this, Louis, so when I get them, I'm a glutton. Thanks for your comment!

Love this image...cool blue seems warm compared with the white stuff.
is this image deliberately a bit softer focus than you normally do...or are you in a hurry because it is cold?
Ginnie Hart: Well, I'm not sure, Ray. Maybe the cold is the culprit?? smile Or maybe the lighting wasn't right when I processed it. Who knows, right?!
A nice window open for this new year : Great !!
Ginnie Hart: That's a nice thought, Zeb. Thanks.
