Connected


It's very important to me that you know how connected I have felt to you all during my time of grief and loss.

THANK YOU.

Very symbolic choice! I am glad that we were able to offer support in some small way.
Ginnie Hart: I am, too, Martin. It means more than I can adequately say. Thank you.
A nice sample of connection.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Shahrooz.

You are welcome Ginnie! See how photography can bring people closer together? Like the picture choice and perfect PP. Take care!
Ginnie Hart: Yes, Fausto, this is the thrill of photoblogs. They do bring us all together in more ways than one. We are very lucky to be living in this day and age of connectivity. Thank you.

Ginnie, I think you know that many SC'ers feel very connected to you. Your spirit surrounds us, and that's a wonderful energy. smile

And your choice of imagery for this connection is so perfect. This world of ours is actually quite small, is it not?
Ginnie Hart: I am very touched, Kay, by this overwhelming support. Your words have always been so precious to me. Thank you. I hope I will always be there for you in your hour of need.

This is a beautifully realised image, and alive with humour, Ginnie...nice one!
Ginnie Hart: I'm so glad you saw the humor in this, Ray. It was hilarious for me when I took it a couple months ago. I never knew it would come in handy for now! A tear and a smile, indeed. Thanks.

Ginnie, the connections we make here, never ceases to amaze me. They are as complex and interconnected as your photograph.
Ginnie Hart: You are so right, Kathryn. So right. We know, don't we! Thank you.
I will second Kathryn's words Ginnie: nice to hear from you again
Ginnie Hart: Thank you so much, Chris. It's very good to be back...and to have this "diversion" which means the world to me.

Graag gedaan, Ginnie, I read the comments......almost no words to add, connected to friends, in all times is the most important thing, but may I say I am glad we have the internet, for I think those trees are way to close to this 'connection point' one big storm....and we are dis-connected again......gringrin BTW great composition, the B&W is superb...I am glad you are back smilesmile
Ginnie Hart: I am glad I'm back, too, Astrid, as you know. When I took this picture a couple months ago near our Atlanta home, I was amazed at how dangerous this looked. But never did I know then that I'd be using it now in a context like this today. I feel like I'm a very lucky lady to be living in this day and age when we are but a phone call or e-mail away. Ontzettend bedankt, lieve vriend.
Great symbolism as always... Ah the creativity.. I hope you know that I think about you a lot when I go out photo hunting! And I'm happy to always be with you in my thoughts. smile
Ginnie Hart: You are so sweet and kind, dear Jen. We've known each other a long time by now and have been there for each other. Thank you.

Very nice symbolism, particularly as our connections in the shutterchance community are dependent on technology.
Ginnie Hart: That is so true, Jewlya. So true. Thank you for being part of this wonderful community.

I lovely the image. I also am really sorry about your loss. Hang in there.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Kanyi, for your warm thoughts. I know you care.

A very symbolic pic with een ietsje of humor, too! I have to agree: There is a wonderful kind of human community (in internet- this is a new experience of me), connected from all over the world, with different meanings, experiences, photo-eyes-and-styles, always touching and enriching and.., but sometimes, so in the last weeks, when your Mom was dying, there was and is one warm feeling!
Ginnie Hart: I'm so glad you are still "young enough" in your spirit, Philine, to be part of the Internet and this SC community. You have been one of my dearest "additions." And besides, I am so fortunate to have met you in real life. I can't begin to tell you how much that has meant to me at this point in time. Thank you, dear friend.

ALL FOR ONE AND ONE FOR ALL.smile

WE are connected in many ways as you have told me before.
S/C is a great community to belong to.
Love the B&W conversion and your shot is very apt with your title and thanks.smile
Ginnie Hart: Oh yes, dear Tracy. So many bridges to each other. So many connections. We are very lucky people here in this SC community. I love your place in it for me. Thank you.

Good choice of symbol. It is nice to know you have friends even if you haven't met them.
Ingrid
Ginnie Hart: You are so right, Ingrid. Sometimes it feels like I HAVE met so many of you whom I haven't. It's such a strange feeling. Thank you.
Very nice symbolic image Ginnie.
We are all connected!
Nice to see you back.
Ginnie Hart: We really are connected, Richard. It's a wonderful gift to me especially now but it has always meant the world to me. Thank you.
Welcome back Ginnie. smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you so much. Etomi. It's very good to be back again.
Ginnie, my thoughts are with you all day, take care.
Ginnie Hart: Your thoughts and kind words are very meaningful to me, Chantal. We all are doing well right now as we plow through all the details before the memorial service on Saturday. It will be weeks from now, when we are alone/away from the hubbub, that it will start hitting us. It's a long process but it's what we call Life. Thank you.

You just pick up the virtual phone and the distance is a lot less.
Ginnie Hart: You are so right, Louis. We're lucky to be living in this age of technology, most of the time! Thank you.
I think we are a pretty connected community and know that being supportive is the first thing we want to do with friends. The pole and wires strongly symbolize this actual connection quite properly. You're a smart lady.
Ginnie Hart: We need to be there for each other, Mary, if we accept the privilege of seeing into the windows of each other's souls. Privilege AND responsibility. I hope you know that my thoughts are also with you these days!

Good metaphor and a cracking photograph Ginnie ;o)
Ginnie Hart: You're a sweetheart, Mike. I actually thought of you while I processed this. smile
C'est sûr l'araignée a encore trop bu
Ginnie Hart: HA! I really like that thought, lecracleur! smile
d'habitude je met mister green mais chez toi je ne sais pas comment mettre un smiley ne pas tenir compte du smiley rouge
Ginnie Hart: I'm not sure my translator knows exactly what you are saying, lecracleur, but I will just smile and say Thank You. smile
A good image Ginnie that says everything you want to say at this time.
Ginnie Hart: That's what I thought, Brian, so thank you for knowing/understanding.
Connection indeed... thanks to vibrating particles.
The rather dark B&W probably suits your mood.
Ginnie Hart: Those vibrating particles keep the world from falling apart, Wim! I did a "fake" HDR on this photo, which is why it's so dark on a brilliantly blue-sky day. I was going to post this in color until I converted it to B&W and liked it better...maybe for the mood, you're right. You are in tune! Thank you.
Glad you chose B&W for this image. It brings out all the lines and contrasts very well. Like the angle and the way you composed this shot, nice job. Appreciate the meaning behind this image.
Ginnie Hart: I first uploaded this in color, John, and after Mom's death, I converted it to B&W with the "fake" HDR look (using the Multiply). I decided that for the moment, I liked it better. Thanks for your confirmation. That means a lot from you.
I'm happy we were able to help a little. smile
Ginnie Hart: I am, too, Bill, but it was a lot. Thank you for your loving part.

Clever image to put up, ginnie. I really like this composition too.
Ginnie Hart: You're very kind, Chad. Thank you.
We're all wired Ginnie ! smile
Ginnie Hart: Yes, we are, Flo. I love it. smile
I like this Ginnie, its a single post with many wires showing that you are not alone. Lovely.
Ginnie Hart: I am definitely not alone, Saratu. It's what "community" is all about. Thank you so much or your own part.

A splendid image working well with your words...
Ginnie Hart: Your words are so kind, Still. Thank you!
Good to notice you are moving on Ginnie ... richard
Ginnie Hart: We really don't have a choice, Richard. It's what she would have wanted. And she will help us do the right thing, I'm sure. Thank you.

A really clever picture to use Ginnie, and you're so right too. Wonderful electricity, keeps us all joined up. smile

You are remembered in our prayers, and welcome back whenever you are ready...we are connected!
Ginnie Hart: You are such a sweetheart, Diane, to stop by and comment. I know that you and Renny are in tune with these things because of your own mother. We're all connected in this Journey called Life. We have the privilege and responsibility to comfort each other with the comfort we've already received. Thank you. Thank you.

I'm a firm believer in the theory of six degrees of separation smile
Ginnie Hart: I am, too, Dave. It amazes me every time. What a small world!
Connections are very important Ginnie, without them we would be so alone, a good picture that works well with the idea.
Ginnie Hart: You are so right, Les. Thank you so much.
Nicely done Ginnie, I know it's only words but sometimes words are very important to support friends smile
Ginnie Hart: Words are what we have, Zeb, and I appreciate all of them. Thank you.

A great pic indeed Ginnie. I wish I could send my regards to you earlier. I think the best part about SC is that we are all a family and can so well share our joys and sorrows in simple ways. I'll remember this shot for a very long time. God Bless.
Ginnie Hart: It was a very meaningful time to be connected to SC, Thomas. It was my main source of comfort during a very hard time! Thank you.
A very allegorical image, Ginnie! I have been absent, but always I have been thinking about you!
Ginnie Hart: I have missed you, José-Angel. I'm so glad to see you back!
