This paint can spills its paint every day two blocks down the street from us,

here in Gorinchem, Netherlands.

 

Have a great weekend.

Very clever selective colouring Ginnie, even if the drop of paint now looks a bit like a tongue!
Ginnie Hart: It always looks like a tongue to me, too, Ellie, but still fun to see. It's always there, every day and night. smile Thanks.

Paint looks very on-theme with Tracy's post today, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: HA! You're right, Ray, though mine is a bit too high to reach. Thanks for connecting the dots. smile

is this real?! now that's a cool ad.. smile nice capture..
Ginnie Hart: Very real, Rian. If you ever need to find the paint store, it's a no brainer, as long as you're not blind! smile Thanks.

Clever selective color image! I also like the fine details and texture of the brick and roof tiles.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Rob. Sometimes you just have to use selective coloring, IMHO. smile

Brilliant selective colour Ginnie. Thats a huge drop you have captured.
Ginnie Hart: It really IS huge, Scotia. Someone sure had a healthy appetite when making this. smile Thanks.
Selective colour used to good effect Ginnie. I wonder how many people walk round rather than under??
Ginnie Hart: HA! Good point, Bill. I'll pay attention next time. smile Thanks.

beautiful selective color processing here, looks like a large mailbox. smile
Ginnie Hart: I hadn't thought of that, Liang, but, yes, you're right. It sure is BIG! smile Thanks.

Hahaha- hé hoor- what a fresh paint-pot- it stretches out its red tongue to us! (a funny idea to attract the attention of the customers) I very like your processing! Ook een fijn weekeind togewenst voor jullie beiden en misschien heeft je wat roods om het aan te kleden! Gisteren heb ik gelezen in de krant dat we tijdens de donkere jaartijd rood zouden aandoen! Dit maakt goede stemming!
Ginnie Hart: I think red is a color we all can relate to, Philine, even if it's not a color we wear. I can wear an orange-red for my skin tones. That works for me. smile Bedankt.
attention!! especially if you are dressed in white ... eheheheh nice day Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHA! Good point, Fabrizio. grin Grazie.

Very good ! My note this morning was to laugh, because I live in apartment good end of the week Ginnie, kiss, you will say to me a day when you live?
Ginnie Hart: Me, too, Pierrot. This is when it's good to live in an apartment so you don't have to do all the yard work. smile Merci.

It is like Tracy's giraffe's tongue reaching out to give Gorinchem a lick. Putting everything on its head.
Ginnie Hart: I love it when we compliment each other, Louis! smile Bedankt.
What a clever sign. Thanks for sharing it in your unique way.

ASTRID SAYS.... It is good that the paint dried that very moment...we have walked underneath it many times...
Love the selective colouring and you were lucky with the sun...
Ginnie Hart: HA! It's been dry a long time, MLMA. grin Thank you...and soon you'll have your own laptop again!
oooooh very cool selective color, almost looks sensuous as much as i hate that word lololol
Ginnie Hart: HA! Sensuous it is, Elaine. grin Thank you.
Great fun capture Ginnie. I wouldn't walk underneath!
Ginnie Hart: I think we have walked under it a million times, Richard, and haven't been none the worse for wear. Well, so far, that is. grin Merci.
Like a tongue out of the mouth, works fine in B&W&Red !
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Karine. I love finding stuff like this. Thank you.

Catch the paint before it hits the ground. It's free. Have a good weekend.

Thanks again for our kind words.

Ms. Yamashita is 85 years old. 20 years old in 1945. She still goes to work a couple of days a week. Amazing.

Thanks Ginnie for your comments on Gandhi Jayanthi.

No, I hadnt known about soulforce, until I visited your link.
I hope the objecitves, aims of the soulforce are all met in the most non-violent way, allowing people to lead lives of their choice without trampling on others toes or forcing ones view point on others...

I wasnt sure if you would get to see my reply, if I posted on aminus 3, hence this reply in your photopblog.

HAve a nice weekend.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks for writing your response here, Sunder. That means a lot. Just last evening Astrid and I watched the movie "Fire" from India (I have already seen it several times). It had so much controversy in India when it came out:
