Today grandson Nicholas flies with us to Hawaii for his mommy's wedding on Sunday.
As her mother, I love nothing more than seeing her "caught" by the love of her life!

(I'll see you a week from now, after we return.)

The same "magical light" like in the last photo. A great detail shot.
Ginnie Hart: Yes, Carsten. It WAS the same magical light! Thanks.
There's a tactile impression here, as if I could feel the texture of the mitt. Nicely done. And congrats to the new couple.
Ginnie Hart: If you're like me, Red Pen, you love the feel and smell of leather! smile Thanks for your kind wishes.
Well let us all sincerely hope all works out well for all concerned Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Absolutely, Chris. They are very good for each other! Thanks.

Love is a beautiful thing! I love the way the light hits the glove.
Ginnie Hart: Love and light go well together, Kanyi, don't they. smile BTW, I found the Corinne Bailey Rae song, "Like a Star!" I absolutely love it!

Een geweldige foto. Love the SUN on the glove/mitt and the tiny shadow, that is what I hope for the future of your daughter, new son-in-law and Nichilas..lots of sun.
Your were able to catch so much detail in the magic light, I do hope the next week will be magic for all of you.
Ginnie Hart: This is a total week of magic in every way, lieve Astrid. I wish you could be there with us to see it all for yourself! In jouw hart en ziel!

With very nice words you have catched this moment and connected with the personal situation of your daughter's life and love! I always like how you are combining seen things or scenes... with general thoughts and feelings about human life! With the best wishes for her and him and you..., Philine
Ginnie Hart: It takes one to know one, Philine! You are the magic wordsmith, so I appreciate your own vote of confidence. Thank you.
Hope the wedding is a wonderful day for you all. Wish them every happiness for me.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir. They really were made for each other, even though it took awhile to find each other. It's never too late!

This makes a really good still life, Ginnie. The light is just magical.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, dear Ingrid. It was that wonderful time of the day!
Wow! Ginnie. That good capture you have done here. The defocusing of the iron door and the high degree of precision in the approach on the glove are precious. In addition, the sun illuminates the main subject of a special form! Bravo! A likey for my!
Ginnie Hart: You are a sweetheart, dear José-Angel. Thank you.

Awesome shot Ginnie. How are the wedding plans going?
Ginnie Hart: The plans have been set in place long ago, Etomi. Now it's the waiting game...enjoying every minute till it happens. Everything is low-key, which makes it less stressful. But it will still be stunning, though simple. I like that.
I hope that your daughter's future will be accompanied by the wonderful sunlight of your picture!
My best wishes to all of you.
Ginnie Hart: I love your kind wishes, Richard, and am sure they will come true. They were made for each other!
Possibly one of our favourite images from Ginnie. Perfect perfect shot that deserves more than a hmmm or interesting smile

Now quick, get this printed and framed, awesome grin
Ginnie Hart: From you, S&S, I will take this as a compliment. smile Thank you.

I'm just loving your baseball images. Brings me back to those days when my boys were younger..and baseball RULED!!!!

You have captured the little details of spring little league baseball brilliantly. I think the light follows you around. Congrats on the upcoming wedding and have a blast in Hawaii. I'm sure there will be some wonderfully lit images from there to come on your blog.
Ginnie Hart: It was a delightful time in Hawaii, Karima, with many great opportunities for pictures. When I'll sort them all through, who knows! But thanks! smile
Wishing everyone at the wedding all the luck in the world...have a safe journey and great time all.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Chris. A great time was definitely had by all...and at least we are now back safe-n-sound. My daughter returns on Sunday.

It's amazing isn't it, how a lens can focus out the wire in the foreground. Lovely detail Ginnie.

Have a wonderful weekend, what a magical place for a wedding smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Ellie. Those lenses ARE amazing, for sure! The wedding was magical in every way. I can hardly wait to work on the photos. smile

Nice symbolism - 'caught' for your daughter and 'time out' for you spending a few days in the dugout. Great shot.

Ginnie, another great shot. What I love most is the way you captured what is an everyday image. How many of us have walked past such a shot and not thought about it.
Unlike the others though, I have no desire to pick them up - too old, too tired smile)
Ginnie Hart: You know how to make my day, Brian. But c'mon! You're never to old to pick up a baseball glove. Even I know that! smile
You are so very fortunate Ginnie. Best of everything for you and your family. This picture is great. For myself, maybe I must be a sentimentalist or something, but the image creates a lonely feeling. Great creative job on this one, I really like it.
Ginnie Hart: I know that feeling, John. There was lots of ethos in this image for me as well. Thanks.
jolie composition, j'aime la lumière ici !
Ginnie Hart: Thanks a million, Marie!

Ginnie Hart: You are so very kind, Chris. Thanks for stopping by and commenting. I tried to leave a comment at your own site but it wouldn't let me. I'll try again later. And yes, of course, you may link to me. I would be honored.
Hey there,
I hope you are enjoying the ball game!!!! This is a great spot, and I hop they "take the glove' (win the game) Have fun!!

Ginnie Hart: I do hope your surgery has gone well, JoAnn. Do catch us up on you at your site. Thanks.
Hi Ginnie, another amazing capture of yours! Awesome light and composition! Congrats on your daughter's wedding and hope the time spent in Hawaii was great. Cheers always from Silicon Valley - {H}

Very beautiful shot. Best wishes for the wedding.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks a million, Navin! It was splendid in every way.
How do you do that???!!! The clarity is just unbelievable.

Enjoy the wedding, wave to me as you fly over smile

Ginnie Hart: You are so sweet, John! smile Thanks. And I DID enjoy the wedding and was probably sound asleep by the time we flew over CA! I waved in my heart, I'm sure.
Absolutely magical - one of the many shots in your collection which I wish were mine. This would remain a favourite for a long time smile
Ginnie Hart: You sure know how to make my day, Thomas! Thank you.
