Down but Not Out


Last impressions from the Michigan cottage over our July 4th holiday weekend.

A kiddy chair from the day before will be righted in no time.
The day has just begun!

There's a quiet artistry at work here, Ginnie. Kudos!
Ginnie Hart: It was a quiet moment for me, Larry, especially as I started to think of the wee ones who love to carry these chairs around because they're small and light enough.

I don't know how you keep up with your travels. Wonderful colors as always.
Ginnie Hart: I know, Sherri. Sometimes even I don't know if I'm coming or going. Believe it or not, I'm in Brussels today and tomorrow while Donica is working. I got to go with her this time, via train. I love it.

Oh, I like this photograph very much, Ginnie. Lot's of subtle why's and wherefore's in this image.

Processing, as always, first class.
Ginnie Hart: So glad you're easy to please, Paul! smile Thank you kindly.
la simplicité qui fait la beauté! j'aime
Ginnie Hart: Sometimes simplicity says more, O-P, yes. More with less. Thanks.
I'm so tired, I'll just have a little nap while no-one is looking! smile
Ginnie Hart: HA! Sounds good, Pat. Me, too. smile

All green tones and no green thumbs,who turn is it to cut the grass LOL
Ginnie Hart: HA! I think the grass was cut later that day, Vintage. smile Thanks.
Must have been quite a celebration if even the kiddy chairs fell over grin Nice shot Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Yesw, Bill, I think you're right. smile I can picture one or two of the wee ones who would have left it tipped like this. Thanks.

Oh yes, Ginnie, this is all you need for a good photo - a subject and a shadow. Great simple composition that speaks volumes.
Ingrid
Ginnie Hart: I think it was the morning shadow that grabbed me when I saw this, Ingrid! Must have been. (And knowing this is so YOU! smile ) Thanks.
You are showing to us, "the day after"… There are images of that no night? smile I am safe, that it had to be very interesting! grin
Ginnie Hart: No images from the night before, José Angel, because I was sound asleep in bed. grin Sometimes I miss all the fun...but catch a glimpse of it the morning after!

Good thing she didn't fall into the pond....I doubt she is a good swimmer, and you might not have heard her pitiful cries for help.
Ginnie Hart: HA! When the kiddies are down by the water, they have no chance of ever falling in...without 10 adults going in after them. smile Thanks, Ray.

Lovely simple image Ginnie, the processing really highlights the shot.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Aussie. Sometimes "simple" helps me slow down! smile
My imagination said: "This an authority seat that rolled". The photograph that was full of the imagination, Ginnie.
Regards from dr Yogyakarta.
Ginnie Hart: It was fun to imagine how this "happened" like this, Bram! smile Thanks.
Down but not out - just like the Three Stooges!
Ginnie Hart: HA! That's the spirit, Chris. grin Thanks.
I like this composition, Ginnie. Very medatative.
Ginnie Hart: Chad meditating? I would bring you koffie and help make your day! smile Thanks.

Great picture and great processing.
Bedankt voor de gezellige dag....we hebben een hoop gezien en gedaan, meer dan je weet.
Ginnie Hart: It was PAST the children's bedtime, Woman! MAN! That was late! But bedankt voor jouw woorden at so late an hour. A truer vriend was never had! We did have such an erg goed dag. We are so lucky to have this memory of Brussels added to our list of photo hunts!

A hungover chair. The morning after the night before. A strong safety warning for adults to stay out of kiddie chairs when having a party.
Ginnie Hart: smile You are right on, Louis! smile
