He sure was not 'lone' that day, a lot of people came to see the parade.
Great portrait, great tones...
Ginnie Hart: The Lone Ranger and Tonto were alwaysa together, Astrid, so you're right. He reminded me of my youth when almost everyone at one time or another had an indian headdress. smile Bedankt.

Do not lick your lips when it is cold. You will be sorry for it later.
Ginnie Hart: LOL, Louis. I see that his cheeks are already quite chapped! smile
Beautiful portrait! Great shot!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks a million, Andrei.
Un retrato muy bonito con unos tonos muy suaves.

You know l just assumed this was taken in America...then l read the blog
Ginnie Hart: I know what you mean, Tony. Exactly. It really surprised me. Astrid laughed because she says she grew up playing cowboys and indians. In fact, I have seen a photo of her as a little cowgirl eons ago. grin
I see that this little Indian has some contemporay help with his costume.
Ginnie Hart: Yes, Chad, you're right. He sure fit the part. smile

Very nice Ginnie: a Dutch Indian hahaha...
Ginnie Hart: Yes, indeed, Chris. Astrid says she always played cowboys and indians when growing up. I have even seen the photo of her dressed up as a cowgirl from eons ago. smile

Great candid portrait Ginnie. I always preferred to be the Indian rather than the Cowboy!
Ingrid
Ginnie Hart: HA! I love it, Ingrid. That must mean you like bows and arrows better than guns! Me, too. smile

What a sweet and amazing expression. Yes - it does look a bit like a winter Halloween!!!
Ginnie Hart: It was quite an experience for me, Marcie, because I'm not used to Carnival. I loved seeing the kids more than the floats passing by. smile Thanks.
A great portrait Ginnie. Well done!
Ginnie Hart: Merci, dear Richard.

A real Indian doesn't feel any cold! -a nice pic of dit Nederlandse jongetje! Yes, our boys also like to be dressed up as indians, cowboys, clowns, vampirs, Harry Potter...
Ginnie Hart: HA! Don't we love to see it, Philine. I bet you saw a lot of it as a teacher!

He(?) has that North American Indian look to him. No wonder it makes you think of your previous life.
Ginnie Hart: Definitely a 'he' but it could have been a she since you're so right about a previous life! smile I love it, Alan.

He's hey-ho'd off with Silver, Ginnie smile

Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Frida. These kids were so fun to snap.

Is that tongue a signal to the Lone Ranger? I think it is a secret code ;-)
Ginnie Hart: I think you could be right, CP. smile How fun.

Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Derek. I appreciate it.
He looks a bit sour
Ginnie Hart: ...or maybe just expectant?

Wonderfully composed shot that highlights all of the detail in his elaborate costume AND his cute expression.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, dear Sue. He was perched on top of his dad's shoulders and caught everybody's eye, I'm sure!
A little late Ginnie..but a lovely portrait.

Wow what a great candid portrait! Very nice work!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Andy.
wow...it's fantastic. He looks cold though. Am I right?
Ginnie Hart: It was very cold that day, Heather, right. The kids were all bundled up under their costumes. Thanks.
Great timing Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Serendipity happens every so often, Pam, right? grin Thanks.
