Friday Tom-Foolery


It's been a long time since I've "played around."
(That's the hot-air balloon before the ride.)

TGIF!  (Thank God It's Friday)

Have a great weekend!

wink, I love the 'playing around' you did, I know this guy will say 'TGIF' too, however, what is more fun than show tourists the country, he is outside all the time.
Have a great weekend yourself smile
Ginnie Hart: His partner, who was the actual pilot of the balloon, was a real talker who grew up in that area, Astrid. You could tell he was totally in his element, loving every minute of what he does.

Whenever we did something that Amy liked as a young girl, should would always say "We should do it more often!" I agree!!! smile
Excellent work on this one, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir!

Nice work on the coloring of this image.
Ginnie Hart: And I even stayed in the lines, Kanyi. grin
Nice bit of the old selective colour Ginnie. Have a good weekend yourself.
Ginnie Hart: It's been a long time since I had done that, Bill...I almost forgot how. grin
Quite a bag! I wonder about the selection of the colors.
Ginnie Hart: Well, you know me, Wim...sometimes I have to draw attention to something! grin I did love that balloon and those were its unmuted colors!

Very appropriate piece of "twiddling" Ginnie. ;o) Have a good weekend ;o)
Ginnie Hart: As I said to Zed/Tony, Twiddle-dee, twiddle-dom...the name of the game, sometimes. smile Thanks, Mike.
A very nice "playing around" Ginnie. I like it!
Have a great weekend too.

I'm glad he knows the area! - I wouldn't like to land in all that cactus one bit ;-) Happy weekend!!
Ginnie Hart: He definitely knew the area, Ian, and knew how to maneuver that balloon! smile

Love how you've done the selective coloring. So perfect! Would love to know how you do it...if you care to share.
Ginnie Hart: If you have PhotoShop, Marcie, it's very easy. You do the B&W conversion and then use the eraser tool to bring the color back. It's like you erase the B&W in order to see the original color. smile
That colouring really sets it off. I like this one Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Glad you like it, Ron. smile

One should play around - there are limits to the concept - but one should play around.

Thank goodness it's Friday - enjoy yours too.
Ginnie Hart: My sentiment exactly, Louis! smile Thanks.
