It's a Small World After All


Hope you can make it to Stratford on Saturday, 10 April, for a meet-up!

We're meeting at 1 p.m. in front of the Royal Shakespeare Theatre (see map
).
If it's raining, look for us inside the next-door pub, The Dirty Duck, a.k.a. The Black Swan!
If you see a bunch of people with cameras, you've probably found us!

(as seen in Groningen, Holland)

If you're one of those who follows me at Vision and Verb, it's my turn again today!

I love your capture, Ginnie! Looks like a very old little trike/scooter. Enjoy your trip and your meet-up. Wish I could be there!!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, oni. I wish you could be there, too. How fun would THAT be. Maybe one day we'll have a V&V meet-up. You never know. smile
It's a lovely image... but not I am stuck with a Disney song in my head... sad Wish I could make it to your meet-up...
Ginnie Hart: That Disney song was swimming around my head all day yesterday, Larry. HA! Wish you could make it, too. One day....

Thank you for sending the illustration of a mode of transport for me to consider, Ginnie...unfortunately, I doubt it will get me to Old Bill's Side-show on time!

Have a great time! Show pics!
Ginnie Hart: Without pedals, Ray, it would get you nowhere fast! smile Too bad you can't be there. I'm sure your name will come up more than once. And you can bet there will be many pics from many of us!

Ginnie Hart: One day it'll be closer, JJ. smile Thanks.

hm i haven't seen one of these cycles before. seems very interesting! great find. wink
Ginnie Hart: The ones without pedals tickle me to death, Liang, because the kids use their feet on the ground to transport themselves.

This photo has a lonely feel. Nice shot, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: It was like a horse hitched up to the hitching post, Helen. smile Thanks and good to see you again.

I will try my best for Saturday but I may be working unfortunatley, but fingers crossed anyways!
p.s ( If I don't make it, you should surely see me two days later wink)
Ginnie Hart: Ohhhh, I DO hope you'll be able to make it, SAVO! I will definitely cross my fingers. If not then, I'll hold you to your promise for 2 days later!

Love to make the meeting, unfortunately its just not possible....one day smile
Ginnie Hart: One day we'll just have to go to Australia, Tony. smile
If you are coming on this you'd better get started now Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: I've been started in my head for a long time now, Bill. grin

A hope some poor child hasn't lost his little bike Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: It was hitched up, Chris, so it wasn't lost. If the child was lost, that's another story! smile

LOL @ Bill, I will give Ginnie a big push towards the West...grin
This is a wonderful shot and yes it is a small world indeed.
I am so glad we can make the trip to the UK and meet up with a lot of SC-friends.
A great shot with the tittle.
Ginnie Hart: Almost every day we are aware of how small the world is, aren't we...and how lucky we are! England suddenly seems very close right now. We're almost there aned we can taste it. YAY! smile

Oh, I'm sure so many wonderful and creative persons -often great children with heart, mind, and fantasy- (some of them like to be sometimes a bit childish) will be gathering -yes, you are right: Sometimes the world is so small -like your little bike! (I hope to meet you both one day in Münster! I'll be near Stratford, too, but three weeks later)
Ginnie Hart: One of these days we will make a day trip to Münster in the car, Philine. Maybe that will be sooner than we think. We both have been thinking of that a lot. We'll find out from you when the best timing is for you...probably some weekend before the end of the summer, perhaps?
PUKY.what a name ,is it PUSH UR KID YOURSELF.Heard on the grapevine Frank Zappa is turning up on Saturday now if you could get Jimi Hendrix as well we could have a rock concert.
Ginnie Hart: It's never too late to plan such a thing, Mick! grin I'd like dibs on Joan Baez, please. I love it.
The title fits nicely Ginnie..Thank you for the map..See you all there!
Ginnie Hart: Can hardly wait to meet you, Ron. Looking forward to it. All us old fogies, right? grin

I'll definitely be there Ginnie and am looking forward to meeting Frank Zappa! I know Stratford well and I'm not sure it's going to be ready for us! Love the pic - I'm imagining a little child hiding just behind the corner.
Ingrid
Ginnie Hart: It is gonna be a blast, Ingrid. YAAAAAAY! And yes, I was the little child hiding just behind the corner. smile

This kind of tricycle for child points out that of my childhood to me, pretty catch, good Monday with you Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: I had never seen trikes without pedals until I came to Europe, Roland. How fun when they remind us of our childhood. Merci.
I see the bike has been tethered - it must be a wild one ;o)

We will be there ;o)
Ginnie Hart: Tethered, indeed, Mike. It actually belonged to the toy shop nearby. I am THRILLED that we'll get to see you both!!!
I won't have enough time to make it with this one Ginnie! Fine capture.
Ginnie Hart: Maybe the next time, Richard! Take care...and merci.

The Dirty Duck, a.k.a. The Black Swan - it probably depends on the time of day smile
Sorry, I won't be making the meet. Someone must have forgotten to send my ticket (the flying one, that is).
Nice shot of the Puky. If it is a suggestion for transport ... shucks the roads in Africa are not conducive for this mode of transport.
Oh yes, make sure you have the right Stratford - apparently there are more than one.
Ginnie Hart: I'm sure your name will come up more than once, Louis, so you'll be there in spirit. And yes, gotta make sure everyone gets the right Stratford!!! How true.
Superb image and great détail. ////Yes, Ginnie, Maxou is my friend dog. Have a lovely day Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Merci, Antoine. smile

I ride the little bike and I arrive but I'm afraid to be late! lolll ... Good day.
Ginnie Hart: LOL, Tede. You will indeed be too late! grin I love the thought, though. Merci.
Lucky to be able to meet like that. Good shot Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: We all are feeling lucky, Albert. Maybe one day we'll actually meet you, too! Gracias.

Nice name...Puky.
Ginnie Hart: I thought so, too, Chad. smile
It looks so sad and lonely, tied up so it can't escape, nice one Ginnie.

All things being equal I should be there on Saturday
Ginnie Hart: Gotta tie up the horse when you get into town, Les. Don't forget! So glad we'll get to see you. smile
Well there's one thing for sure I will be there as I'm the driver!!! Looking forward to our reunion The Three Musketeers yipeee and finally we three meet the Three Stooges together!!!
Great shot mijn vriend, but I thought you were flying not pedalling...See you Thursday morning smilesmile
Ginnie Hart: LOL, Tracy. We are in definite count-down right now. Having Astrid off on Monday, yesterday, however, has really made this week feel cattywampus. Thursday comes faster than usual! Be there or be square! grin
Great picture for a small world! We shall definately be there... See you Saturdaysmile smile
Ginnie Hart: With bells, Linda! grin Thank you.
How marvellous that so many of your SC friends will have the opportunity to meet up. As your post at V&V emphasized, Ginnie, the Internet is a powerful tool, giving us the ability to connect with others and forming valuable friendships along the way.

Hope this meet-up provides loads of laughs and great times for all.
Ginnie Hart: We are thoroughly delighted and excited, Beverly. It's so fun to meet the people who will finally have a face. You'll hear all about it from several of us, I'm sure! Thank you.
Wow, this has such detail and contrast, it is beautiful. Puky is a funny name for a bike! I'm curious about the cord tied to it?
Ginnie Hart: The trike (well, what is it called with 4 wheels??) was tethered outside a toy shop, Mark. I loved the vantage point from where I first saw it, peeking out from around the corner. Since then I have seen many bikes with the PUKY brand. Thanks.
love this
Ginnie Hart: You're a sweetheart, John. thanks.
I've never seen a four wheel trike Ginnie, all of ours seem to be 3 wheel ones, and our Granddaughter still can't get the hang of steering it! All being well we shall speed post haste to Stratford on Saturday, it is about 75 minutes from us I reckon.
Ginnie Hart: So what is a 4-wheeled trike called, Brian??? Beats me. Once your granddaughter gets the hang of it, she'll have it down pat for life. smile And I'm so delighted we'll see you on Saturday. YAY!
woohooo, a four wheel drive!!! is that how you get around? smile just don't let your knees hit your chin lol
Ginnie Hart: HA! A four-wheel drive! I love it, Elaine. And without pedals! grin
It's definitely a small world for the little folk smile Unfortunately I have a previous lunch appointment on the 10th, otherwise I would be been delighted to pop down to Stratford. Hope you will have a great time.
Ginnie Hart: Maybe we'll catch you another time, Tom...unless you bring your "lunch appointment" along??? Thanks.
I'm afraid I won't be able to make it but have a great get together and I look forward to seeing the pics.
Ginnie Hart: Maybe another time, Janet! Thanks.

Isn't it somehow comforting to find kids are about the same all over the world? Love the little rope - is that the security system you think?

Alas Ginnie, I will not be joining you this year. I had hopped to be able to get a cheap last minute ticket (I'm in the process of buying a house) but I couldn't find one. I'll be with you all in spirit!!
Ginnie Hart: Actually, Martie, this was tethered outside a toy shop. So cute. smile Thank you for even thinking of coming to the meet-up. Maybe next time, once you're settled?!

Oh shoot, I've already got something penned for that day.

Post photos of the 3 Musketeers and 3 Stooges okay. And down a pint for me, will ya?

Enjoy your holiday.
Ginnie Hart: Yes and Yes, Maria. grin We will have so much fun, I know. Take care and thanks. Maybe next time?
classic image! Reminds us all of childhood memories!
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Heather. Thanks.
The composition is great Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Hartstikke bedankt, Chantal.

Ginnie Hart: HA! I love it, Fabrizio! Grazie.

"the kids use their feet on the ground to transport themselves." Our children learn biking in this way, too- the second step: They are able to use the pedals!
Ginnie Hart: The first time I saw little bikes without pedals was in Germany, Philine. I still smile everytime I see kids scooting along by the use of their feet on the ground. Makes sense to me. smile
Great shot, i like the light. Very good "remember the times" smile
Ginnie Hart: Oh yes, Andrei. Stuff like this always brings back memories! smile Thanks.
I bet you're sick of folk making jokes about the name! (sorry) But still, it's a nice little picture.

Have a nice time in the vuile eend - best I could do with Google!
Ginnie Hart: Once I saw this one, George, I see the name everywhere. They must have made out like bandits. smile Thanks.

Ginnie Hart: Now you're reminding me of the other SC meet-up, Johnny! I feel so lucky to have met you. I'll never forget it. And I still have all those photos I took of you. smile You can be sure that I'll be taking lots of pictures again. I'll miss you.

Ginnie,

I'm not sure if it's just because I have children, but I love this shot. Your shot has wonderful composition and different textures. What's more though is your capture of this child's toy reminds me of my children which brings a smile to my face. Great work capturing emotion in an inanimate object!
Ginnie Hart: Your words are very kind and humbling, Craig. I do love when an image has this kind of effect on us. Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts!
