Here's Aussie!
I met up with her yesterday in Amsterdam,
on her way back to Brisbane, Australia.
My "angel" for the day!

[Today I fly home to Atlanta.]

Ginnie...you are on the prowl. This is lovely. Look at all those facial expressions. I love stuff like this. Please you have to tell me what you used to make the dipstych, or collage.............
Pray tell.

Lovely to meet you Aussie.
Ginnie Hart: Ohhh, Ada. All I did was size all the photos into 800x600 images and then just dragged them into a PhotoShop white background (using the grid lines helped!). It was just something I pictured in my mind. Thank you so much.

A great series. You really show off Aussie's personality.
Ginnie Hart: I HAD to do several "faces" of Aussie, Red Pen, to do justice to her incredibly beautiful face. She is one of the most genuine persons you could ever meet! I feel very honored to have met her.
This is real lovely Ginnie. very nice gesture.
Ginnie Hart: It was totally MY honor to meet Aussie, Sesan. I will never forget her!

Fabulous photos!! Love the series..and how you've put them together. I hope she likes them as much as we are enjoying!! Really really great!
Ginnie Hart: I hope she likes them, too, Marcie! smile She totally gave me "permission" to post about her here on SC but was quite self-deprecating. She has no clue how beautiful she is. So much character!
If this isn't the nicest series of our favorite Aussie. glad you're sharing her with us. It's fabulous - both of you!
Ginnie Hart: You would fall in love with her the minute you set eyes on her, Mary. She is totally beautiful!

What a lovely collage of an extra lovely woman grin

Superb montage, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: I had to do it on the fly, Ray, since I'm flying back to Atlanta today, but I ended up feeling good about it in the end. It "said" what I wanted it to say! Thank you.

To meet one's 'angel' is a privilege only few have, you are one of the privileged.

It is a pleasure to meet Aussie, it is now 'the face behind the picture' that is what nice about SC, every once in awhile we 'meet' on SC and that adds to the friendships we already have on SC.
Thank you Ginnie for this beautiful collage, for showing 'your' angel.
Voor straks.....wel thuis.....I explained these words to you....have a safe trip home, een goede reis.
Ginnie Hart: The face behind the picture has always been important to me, Astrid, as you know. Meer dan je weet! When the person you meet is an angel, you feel you have been given an "eternalized moment." I am a very lucky woman!

I'm in the airport lounge as I write, waiting for the plane to Atlanta. It's late, due to a computer glitch in the States yesterday. BUT at least it'll still get us on our way, assuming there are no more glitches.

Bless her heart, she's beautiful and photogenic and she doesn't realize how good she looks. She's embarrassed. Such fine captures and put together in a nice order. This is sweet.
Ginnie Hart: She has no clue how beautiful she is, Sherri! You nailed it! Thank you!
très belle série. tu es très douée pour les personnages.
Ginnie Hart: Merci, O-P. Merci!

Whats This? I work with her day and night for years and I had to be sneaky to get two photos.One lunch and a Aussie allows a photo session.lol
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHAHA! I know, Vintage. Life is so unfair. grin

LOL at Vintage......erm....do I smell some jealousy here...???
I think it is just the way you asked her permission...tonguetongue
Ginnie Hart: HA! Hmmm. You may be right, Astrid. grin
At last, Ausie revealed! So nice to meet you.
Ginnie, this is a wonderful collage, you abviously had a great time together. Thank you for sharing with us. smile
Ginnie Hart: Aussie revealed, indeed. We had a fabulous time together, Pat!

You can always tell when a subject is comfortable with the photographer.

A fabulous series of intimate portraits which convey happiness and a sense of fun.

Marvellous... and nice to meet Aussia as well smile
Ginnie Hart: She was shy in front of the camera, Paul, but she didn't fight it, to my delight! smile

I thought I told you to photoshop all those wrinkles out
Ginnie Hart: NO WAY! Those wrinkles are your character, Aussie, and only add to your beauty. You have no idea!
She saw a lot in her days, at least, that is what I guess from your portraits.
Ginnie Hart: Yes, Wim. You are so right! A very wise woman.

A symathical face!-and I can imagine that you both have well communicated with each other! I agree with Wim's comment, and as I have read the last days I think Aussie can need well our best wishes for her return to Australia (and God's blessing)!
Ginnie Hart: Oh yes, Philine. She is a very wise woman and she is full of joy in her life, regardless of the circumstances!

Ginnie, you have the sensitivity to give the Internet-photoblog-community a real touch of humanity and a living vividness- also by your pic like ths series of pics. Wonderful your answer to Aussie's reply- yes, you are right and true!
Ginnie Hart: Your words touch me deeply, Philine. You and Aussie are similar in many ways! Meer dan je weet! smile
It looks as if you cheered her up, Ginnie, after her big dissapointment with the UK job.
Ginnie Hart: We cheered each other up, Chad....a lot! Meer dan je weet! smile

I get the feeling you two had a great time together Ginnie, how nice to meet Aussie, you really have put a lovely collage together here, I must get some lessons from you!
Ginnie Hart: It was "on the fly," Brian, because I still had to pack before flying home the next day. It came together quickly, so I was lucky. Thanks.

Fabulous series of shots of her Ginnie and nice to see you Aussiesmilesmile

A collage is so much more than a portrait - it can show personality like here. Excellent. How many SC'ers have you met now?

Doing this on the fly ... from my experience yesterday evening when I did a collage of 37 portraits from a recent family gathering - you flew straight.
Ginnie Hart: I sure have met many, Louis, especially the 19 at one time last year at the BBQ party! I feel very lucky! smile
Excellent series, she looks very happy smile
Ginnie Hart: I totally agree, Will. Thanks.

Fantastic expressions in this portrait collage. Wonderful !
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Carsten!
So this is Aussie! Such warmth and happiness. A great study.
Ginnie Hart: Yes, Jose Ann. This is Aussie! smile
Nice "montage" indeed !
Ginnie Hart: And it doesn't even begin to do her justice, Zeb!
8 good face expressions. The sketch or lines on face skin, showed the experience lived that was extraordinary as well as showed beauty of this woman. I love it. Regards from Yogyakarta Indonesia.
Ginnie Hart: A woman full of grace and charm, Bram. You'd love meeting her!
Thanks to present to us to Aussie, Ginnie. A pleasure to know it!
Ginnie Hart: You would love her to death, Jose Angel! smile Gracias.

Aussie is lovely. You captured her spirit so that I feel like we've just met...
Ginnie Hart: That's exactly the kind of personality she has, Beth. I felt I had known her for years!
I was just looking back to remind myself of the field of dreams picture when I spotted this. Don't know how I missed it before. So great to see Aussie. I was disappointed that I didn't get to meet her when she was all to briefly in the UK.
Ginnie Hart: So glad you got to see this, then, Bill, because she was a joy to behold!
