This is a series from our Country Fair when I took my g'son on October 8.

While her parents did their Native American thing in the Indian Village, she got to play.

Thank God it's Friday!

Wonderful portrait of this cute girl! Beautiful tones.
Ginnie Hart: Grazie, Pernilla. She sure seemed to have the run of the place. grin

Native American Child's Horse?

Another wonderful shot in this series, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: A horse of a different color, Ray, for sure. grin Thank you kindly.
totally cute!
Ginnie Hart: She had the run of the place, Heather. It was all I could do to get a satisfactory image of her. You would have had a heyday with her. smile Thanks.

Oh what a cutie!

have a ghoulishly good halloween weekend.
Ginnie Hart: She was definitely her own person, Maria, knowing how to entertain herself well, without other kids around.

Little Nicholas has been sick this week, so our pumpkin-carving activities tomorrow may have to be canceled. Otherwise, I was planning for a great Halloween day. The important thing is to get him better, of course. Supposedly it is NOT the flu but another 3-4 day virus with high fever. Man!
I love the contrast of the traditional dress and the modern scooter, as well as her determined expression...
Ginnie Hart: It really was a contrast, Larry. I had to take a second look more than once! smile Thanks.
Great shot Ginnie

Have you heard this one

Ginnie Hart: Awwww. Thanks for the YouTube, Janet, which I had NOT heard. How fun.
Now that is the old and the new in one shot.
Ginnie Hart: You got that right, Michael!

This one brought een brede glimlach!! smile
Two worlds into one, love the determined expression on her face....this #133.....
Great tones and composition.
Love the background with the rope and sails.
TGIF.....MLS...KSK....IHVJ... (Louis will smile now too wink )
Ginnie Hart: She had you written all over her, MLMA! grin You would have felt kin to her...so full of energy, having the run of the place, totally in her element outside, etc., etc. The "sails" in the background are the teepee materials from Monday's image this week. The man was off to the right of this image. Bedankt!

Thank goodness it's Friday??? You have a job again? I thought by now that every day is Friday.

Or am I missing the point - is there a flight planned for this one?

Great picture by the way smile
Ginnie Hart: Wait till you're retired, Louis, and you'll still feel the rhythm of the week and the fun of the weekend. It's locked into our subconscious forever, I'm sure! smile

The flight, BTW, will come in approximately a month. I'm still waiting for the refi date, after which I can book my flight. You can imagine my/our excitement. Thanks.
There's A Present For Your Wonderful Work, on my blog. Take it smile Here is the link… http://infobybvc.blogspot.com/2009/10/award-present-for-your-blog.html

What a sweet pic! I in particular like her facial expression and her concentration!
Astrid is right "Two worlds into one"! If she might be able to ride a horse?
Ginnie Hart: She was adorable, Philine...like a little Astrid claiming the outside world and having a blast! smile I'm guessing she'd be riding a horse if there had been one just hanging around! Thanks.

Louis, ik kan alleen maar twee van Astrids afkortingen vertalen, maar een geheim moet zijn zodat we niet alles kunnen begrijpen!
Ginnie Hart: HA! I love it, Philine. We are so used to writing our acronyms that it's hard to NOT write them, even in public. It's fun to keep you guessing on some of them.

This reminds me of a fond memory I had of Mom and Dad growing up. Mom would leave a card at Dad's dinner plate on special occasions and would always have a long acronym on the envelope. We 8 kids always tried to figure out what it said...while Mom and Dad jusr sat there and smiled. smile
A picture to make you smile smile Have a good weekend Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: She definitely made me smile, Bill. smile Thanks.

She is obviously taking her playing very seriously by the look of intense concentration on her face! Lovely portrait.
Ginnie Hart: She was in her own world midst all the adults, Ingrid, and was probably trying to figure out how she could carefully avoid them all. grin Thanks.
great image Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Chantal.

Hmmm.. not quite the image of native Americans I would normally have.. I expect to see them riding backback on horses whopping and hollering!
Ginnie Hart: Don't you love it when you're pleasantly surprised, Alan?! grin

she's a cutie!

i like the juxtaposition of traditional and modern here, a nice capture.
Ginnie Hart: I really had to laugh after I saw your image today, David, because between us, we could play Cowboys and Indians. grin I love it. Thanks.

Ginnie Hart: Thanks a million, Sarina. I love the dress of our Native Americans!
A wonderful outfit she's wearing ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: She sure seems comfortable in it, Chad!

That looks like fun. Is the scooter native, too?
Ginnie Hart: I think this is an image about ADAPTATION, Hoi. grin Thanks.
I wonder what the ancestors would have said about the modern scooter. Beautiful capture Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Very good question, Ron. smile I'm guessing by now the ancestors know it's all about adaptation! Thanks.

here modernity meet the past. I wonder what she thinks about her heritage.
Ginnie Hart: Good question, Kanyi. I wonder, too. So often the Native Americans have NOT been treated well in our country, I hate to say. Hopefully she has been proud of her heritage and not been made fun of in her short life!
A modern kids scooter in a re-enactment, well spotted Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: I'm glad her parents apparently had no problem with the "disconnect!" Thanks, Brian.
Nice portrait!
Great shot!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, RS, for stopping by and commenting!

She's having great fun isn't she
Ginnie Hart: She was having a heyday, Ellie, for sure!
Lol, that looks like a very modern toy for that costume. Nice capture.
Ginnie Hart: It's fun, isn't it, Brian, when 2 cultures coincide/collide like this. smile Thanks.

she looks so cute with that serious expression on her face.. very nice capture.. smile
Ginnie Hart: She was a study in concentration, Rian, and I could barely keep up with her! Thanks.
the shoes are darling.
but i love the look of serious determination on her face!
Ginnie Hart: What I love most is that the "costume" doesn't keep her from living her life! She clearly is comfortable in her own skin! Thanks, Seraphine.

I like how you saw as you get it and like the show, for me an excellent picture
Ginnie Hart: Muchas gracias, Ricardo, por sus palabras!
very very nice
Ginnie Hart: Grazie, Fabrizio. smile
I would have liked to see her on an unsaddled horse and armed with a bow and arrows!
Ginnie Hart: You and someone else I know, Wim. smile Maybe it's in her future destiny!
En dos palabras IM-PRESIONANTE Ginnie, gracias por tu explicación de la tecnica.
