photoblog image Mini-Nyhavn

Mini-Nyhavn


Adjacent to the Atomium (yesterday's post) in Brussels, Belgium, is Mini-Europe,
where Astrid and I were on a photo hunt last July, 2008. 
If you look at her post
today, you'll see a good difference in perspective when two different photographers take photos of the same thing:
she's almost always more macro and I'm almost always more micro.


Nyhavn, Copenhagen, Denmark

LOL I looked at the thumbnail and I thought that looks like Copenhagen. Puzzling as I knew we were in Brussels this week. All is now clear. I should have spottted the giants looming over the buildings ;o)
Ginnie Hart: Sometimes it's so fun to confuse others with photography, Mike. But yes, we're still in Brussels. grin

This to me is a perfect view of that harbour, I have never been to Copenhagen but it was fun to do "Europe" in one day.
They did a great job in the park, it was one of my most fun picture hunt with you.
One day we might go and see the real stuff.
Nogmaals ontzettend bedankt MLS.
Ginnie Hart: One day we will see many of these places together in real life, yes! I'm so glad we both love to travel...AND take pictures! Partners in crime wherever we go! smile

Ginnie Hart: The entire Mini-Europe is that way, Vintage! Thanks.

Oh! Great fun to see Astrid's shot, and then yours, Ginnie.

The reflections, especially, are wonderful here.
Ginnie Hart: It happens all the time, Ray...we always have different takes on the same thing. It's what makes the world go 'round!

That looks like so much fun, I've seen old photos of my parents posing with these. Very cool.
Ginnie Hart: I have always liked things like this in miniature, Brian. So fun!

Ginnie Hart: Yup. Exactly, Sherri!

If it wasn't for the people I'd never know this was a model Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: You'd feel that way about the entire place, Chris!!
I have always like model villages and this one is a cracker Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: I have, too, Bill, and have even said often that I would have liked to work on making such models. Thanks.
Well that beats Bourton-on-the-water.
Ginnie Hart: HAHA, Chad. I'll just take your word for it. smile

I see Astrid's roof with people here in your picture smile I think I'm more macro too smile But I'm trying to photograph the scenery too but I always end up on the small details. This is nice and so realistic.
Ginnie Hart: Your camera (and hers) takes such good macro photos, Frida, so I can see why! Thanks.

Whoa! I thought it was a real town until I saw the people in the background! Great shot!
Ginnie Hart: Don't we all love surprises, Nathan! smile Thanks.

Brilliant - I thought there looked to be something different about this from the thumbnail! I spy Astrid's figures on the roof.
Ingrid
Ginnie Hart: It's been fun to go through our images together here in Michigan and find two that match for the day, Ingrid. We've been like two kids having too much fun. smile
ouh que c'est beau
Ginnie Hart: You can be proud of this grand city in your country, O-P!
I love the reflection in the water
Ginnie Hart: Bedankt, Chantal. Even "mini" water has reflections. So fun.
This is a superb minitown Ginnie. Very nicely captured!
Ginnie Hart: I just LOVE things in miniature, Richard. Merci.
A great model village and picture of it Ginnie, yes I can see Astrids choice of little people as well.
Ginnie Hart: It was so fun to see what she saw, Brian. Sometimes we need more than two eyes!
Aahhh I remember seeing this when we visited Ginnie. Nice reflection.
Ginnie Hart: This was my second visit there, Bernie. I never tire of it. Thanks.

Yes, Astrid is right: 'Europe' in one day! For many tourists much fun as I can imagine! I never have seen Madurodam in Netherlands or parks like that- your different perspectives are a wonderful idea and really interesting! Jullie gemeenschappelijk werken moet heel veel plezier zijn en ik verheug me erop dat jullie nu van zo'n fantastische tijd samen kunnen genieten!
Ginnie Hart: I saw Madurodam almost 11 years ago, Philine, but would love to go back, now that I have seen Mini-Europe this recently. I'd like to compare. As I recall, Madurodam is a smaller scale and only of places in the Netherlands (Astrid has just confirmed). Ontzettend bedankt, lieve Philine, voor jouw ondersteuning!

wow.. if it weren't for the people there in the background, i would've thought this was biggie sized version of it! great shot! grin
Ginnie Hart: I just LOVE models like this, Rian. I am a glutton for them! Thanks.

This is so interesting with the three dimensional feeling or four dimensional or....
Ginnie Hart: I love stuff like this, Mary! Thanks.

Dang, I bet this was one super fun place to photograph!! I love what you did with it. I have a friend, Krista that I shoot with a lot, and it's so funny how differently we see the same places. We hardly ever come away with the same shots at all. That is so much fun, eh?
Ginnie Hart: It's a wonderful experience, Sylvia, and never ceases to amaze me. We always have fun on our photo hunts...looking at what we captured later!
I like the way you have framed this one Ginnie, and your processing.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks a million, Nigel!

Wow I really thought this was a real city on first glance!Love this!
Ginnie Hart: You'd love the entire park, Andy. Each "station" is as complex and awesome as the last.
Lovely reflections Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Albert!

Ginnie .. so cool, looks not like a miniature
Ginnie Hart: That's why I adore miniatures/models, Klaus! Danke.
Wow - I love it! Wish we had something like this here in Victoria. I'm sure it would be an awesome hit!
Ginnie Hart: These sites could be almost anywhere, Jen...but it takes someone with good imagination and lots of skill, money...and time! I would love to be part of such an undertaking, seriously. smile
This is a beautiful photo. I like it.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Lothar, for stopping by and commenting. Danke.
