Her Reflection


Please allow another week's worth of impressions from Mom's yard before I, too, march on.

There was a tulip arrangement sent from afar whose petals eventually fell.
Her reflection became clearer than the real thing.

[Today I'm in Atlanta.]

I like the treatment you've given this Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir!
The perals must eventually fall. Lesson learned.
Ginnie Hart: Yes, Mary. Nature teaches us what we need to learn. Thank you.
I like the focus on the reflection. Good idea!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Martin. I appreciate it.

What a lovely and artistic shot. The reflection is so perfect it almost seems unreal. The muted tones work really nicely.
Ginnie Hart: It was highly symbolic for me when I first looked at this, Jewlya, because I hadn't focused on the reflection intentionally. Thank you.
You are wonderful. That shot is magical.
Ginnie Hart: You are so very kind and sweet, Michael. Thank you.

Beautiful capture Ginnie. May your memories of loving links in the family chain remain, until those links are joined again.
Ginnie Hart: That is such a loving thought, Aussie. Thank you. I'm sure we'll all be joined again some day!
How beautiful!!!! I love the reflection, such a great photo.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, dear Jen.

The reflection of this petal gives clarity to the memory of both Mom and the far away sender of the tulips.
Ginnie Hart: Her nephew from Washington, D.C. sent them, Kathryn, and then he came to see her before she passed away. That, too, was like a reflection. Thank you.

The tulips are falling. On Dutch 'Stilleven' we often see tulips- as symbol of joy of life (Carpe diem) and of vanity, decay- that's life, that are the two sides of life! A lovely pic - in memory of your Mom!
Ginnie Hart: That's a new "trivia" for me, Philine, and very appropriately remembered for this image. Thank you for that thought, as always.

A beautiful, symbolic image Ginnie, captured with great delicacy.
Ingrid
Ginnie Hart: The more I see it, Ingrid, the more symbolic it becomes. Thank you!
I love this! A work of art. You not only have an eye for great photography, but a talent for turning it into a work of art.
Ginnie Hart: You have touched and humbled me with your kind words, Martie. Thank you. Tomorrow we will dance.
Simplicity, beautifully composed and lit make for a memorable image.

Ginnie .. you are pumped out some real outstanding work ..keep it up !!
Ginnie Hart: You're a sweetheart, Shakara! Thank you.
I can imagine the feelings you have, please don't apologize for expressing them.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Chantal, for that "permission" to mourn. Sometimes I think it's gotta be tiresome to everyone else, but then...it's my blog, as my daughter often tells me! Tomorrow the days of mourning will be over and we'll dance!

Tulip? Two lips? It's a lovely image, symbolic on many levels for me, esp. thinking of you, D. and AMS.
Ginnie Hart: Two lips! I like that, Ruth. So would she. If only she knew....I wonder! And yes, I look forward to AMS on Monday with longing. Five weeks away has been much too long.
Beautiful reflection Ginnie. You can be proud of this one.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir!

The reflection is the siamese sister of reality...a beautiful and delicate image...
Ginnie Hart: The Siamese sister of reality! You sure do have a way with words, dear Lina! Thank you.
Very poignant Ginnie. It really causes one to stop and look inward.
Ginnie Hart: Lots of inward refections of late, Scarlet, for sure! Tomorrow I'll come out to dance, I promise. smile
Wonderful Ginnie. What a delicacy! Great composition. A likey for me.
Ginnie Hart: You are so very kind, Richard. Thank you.

Powerful image, Ginnie.
I think it accurately represents something important...strong people affect everything and everyone around them...when they are no longer there, they remain a presence, reflected by the powerful influences they had before they went.
I love this image.
Ginnie Hart: I couldn't have said it better, Ray! Thank you, kind sir.
That's a very good one Ginnie, so delicate...
Ginnie Hart: She was anything but delicate, Flo, until the end. Then it hit me! Thank you.

Very nice composition Ginnie, caught the reflection very well and the muted colour suits it just fine.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Les. Hers is a reflection to be reckoned with!
A great idea for a really beautiful result !

Sparakeloos, the refelection is spot on, the symbolic is so great, the colors are stuning, this is so very well taken, you can be very proud with it, the thought behind it and the way you captured it, ontzettend goed.
Ginnie Hart: Your flattery will get you everywhere, mijn lieve vriend! And I mean that sincerely! Thank you.
