How precious. I've taken a peek at the post about your time back in the States and how "big" the county fair is. I should go and check out the state fair next year.

Hope you're both done with jetlag. Hi to Astrid
Ginnie Hart: It's a huge fair, Maria--the biggest I've ever seen. We'll go every year, if we can. smile Yes, all done with the jetlag, finally! Thanks.

Love how you've processed this - perfect for this rustic, old-time image.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Kala. It all looked like it had been there for centuries. smile

These little race-monsters look so great, I had a red one gringrin.....
It gives me a smile, with other kids on the block we would race each other or even play 'Cowboys and Indians' with it.
Wonderful treatment, fits the time-age.
TGIF...... tomorrow Germany here we come.
Ginnie Hart: I can just picture you on a red tricycle, MLMA. Man! I bet you packed a wallop on that thing, terrorizing the whole neighborhood. grin

En ja, morgen naar Germany met Philine.
oh da howwor!!! these are like texas chainsaw massacre tricycles lololol esp with your wonderful processing!!!
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHA! Now I'm terrified, Elaine. Only you would come up with that! grin Thanks (I think?).

Funny title and a fine nostalgic reminder of childhood days - if you came tomorrow riding these "race- monsters" (Astid) I had to wait for you till night I'm afraid - een goede reis naar de oostburen - ik ben al aan het wachten op jullie beiden met hartekloppen!
Ginnie Hart: We are so excited, Philine. Astrid will eindelijke get to meet you and I will enjoy seeing you again...this time under much better circumstances. smile Hartstikke bedankt.
A well worn and used bike think of how much fun has been had over the years with this little tricycle.
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Scotia. I grew up riding one of these over-sized trikes. I think all 8 of us kids rode it at one time or another! Built to last. smile

Superb and génial capture. The texture is very beautiful. I like it. Good day Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Merci, dear Antoine. :
I thought from the thumbnail that you and Lady P had bought new bikes
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHA! We'd have a ball, Bill. :
Very nice photo of this drying bikes! Great view! Have a nice weekend.

Ginnie Hart: Thanks a million, neighbor, for stopping by and commenting here. One day we plan to visit your neck of the woods. smile Hartstikke bedankt.
Looks like they've been there a while.
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Nigel!
identical to the basement of my grandmother!!!! Ginnie you were here? ehehehe
Ginnie Hart: HA! I love the thought, Fabrizio. Grazie.
Very nise pic...Thank you for your mote Ginnies, souçis family, at the end of life of my brother kisses...
Ginnie Hart: Merci, dear Pierrot. Merci.
Time flies Ginnie. I remember using these things as if it was yesterday!
Lovely capture and treatment.
Ginnie Hart: Long-term memory is sometimes the best, Richard. smile Merci.

I see they hang little bushels of anti-witch in the shed smile

Excellent picture, generating nostalgia with us older people.
Ginnie Hart: HA! Ant-witch. I'll have to remember that, Louis. smile Thanks.
Looks like a grandpa's shed. Was all this stuff for sale?
Ginnie Hart: Now that you say it, Sheila, I have no idea where I saw this at the Fair. It must have been one of their old-timey "museum-type" buildings, showing memorabilia from the good-ol' days! So no, it was not for sale. smile
A real trip down memory lane Ginnie,I like the sepia tones.
Ginnie Hart: Memory lane often brings a smile, Martin! Thanks.
What a shot Ginnie. This is an excellent photo. Congratulations.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Shaun!

Wonderful shot, Ginnie.

Really love the accidental two-wheeler!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Ray. Somehow I loved the missing wheel. grin
Will they be left like this, one wonders?
Ginnie Hart: Forever and ever, Amen! smile
Lovely texture Ginne!
Ginnie Hart: So good to see you again, Etomi. Thank you.
Great composition, and I like the subject, works well with your style of photos
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Chantal.

Huge nostalgia - and enhanced by the beautiful sepia treatment.
Ginnie Hart: We had one of these growing up, George, shared amongst all 8 of us kids! smile Thanks.
hey Ginnie, love the composition in this shot as well as the tones smile
Ginnie Hart: Thanks a million, Charles. smile
Imagine the fun that was once had on these, with lots of laughter and still we enjoy them smile
Ginnie Hart: Absolutely, Linda. I remember standing on the back behind my sister when she rode it, and then she was behind me when I rode it. smile So fun.
Beautifully processed to further wind back the clock. Lovely! (:o)
Ginnie Hart: That clock has been winding back a lot for me lately, Roz. grin Thanks.
Hello Ginnie,
Superb image as illustrations of some books! A style that reminds me of what great film "The Triplets of Belleville" (in the form of an animated desin!) Certainly not known at home!!
Bon WE!!
Ginnie Hart: "The Triplets of Belleville" is one of my favorite movies, Mathilde, and one I own. I never thought of it in relation to this nimage, so thanks for that delightful thought! Merci.
I loved my trike
Ginnie Hart: I did, too, Richard. grin
They're going nowhere very fast, Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Tom. smile

Oh..I just love these old tricycles. They carry such happy childhood memories!!
Ginnie Hart: For me, too, Marcie. They were so big back then! smile Thanks.
Sadly with only two wheels this won't be giving young children much more pleasure.
Ginnie Hart: I know, Brian. Maybe it's the thought that counts? smile Thanks.
Looks like the tricycle from 'Les Triplettes de Belleville' that wonderful animation by Sylvain Chomet. So that's where Grandma left it, great shot.
Ginnie Hart: That's one of my favorite movies, John, and one I own. It's fabulous. Thanks for the thought.

Lovely picture! This gives Fine nostalgic memories of childhood days ... Great !!! smile
Ginnie Hart: For me, too, Sam. smile Thanks.
It seems like the ideal place for treasure hunters.
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Odd!
Good evening, Ginnie. I'm going from Lolo's blog. This little bike is very pleasant to see. I have an old blue bike with a lantern.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Brigitte, for stopping by and commenting. I tried to leave a comment on your post about "To Kill a Mockingbird" but couldn't find where to do it. I'll try later. I have been trying to find the movie here where we live in The Netherlands. I want Astrid to see it...one of the best stories ever written.

Old cycles, very old.

Super textures

A long time has passed since those two bikes were used. I don't know exactly but I may think that it is a bit too much processing. Other than that it is a great image.
Ginnie Hart: The textures have really made it almost too gritty, Frida, I agree. Thanks for being honest.
Just goes to show that sometimes the missing object is the most noticed - oh yeah, there IS another way to say that - conspicuous by its absence. Also: the missing wheel gets little or no grease. Also: the squeaky wheel probably isn't missing. Also: shut up, Alan, and go to bed. G'night, Gracie.
PS - I do love the image smile
Ginnie Hart: Thanks for a nice laugh this morning, Alan! That was fun. smile Have a great weekend.

Love the grittiness, when a tricycle becomes a bicycle.
Ginnie Hart: Almost over the top, Rob. Thanks.
They certainly look like they have seen their share of kids's bums.
Ginnie Hart: HA! I guess you could say that again, Michael. smile

A time of simple pleasures Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Yes, indeed, Mike!
A great emotion as i watch those old lovely ones dreaming of strong flights in times. Superbly framed & processed (as always). And the tones are rusty-magic !
Ginnie Hart: I love how so many of us can remember these, Karine! Merci.
A fantastic processing. The result is really great
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Calusarus. Merci.
I used to have one of those when I was little!
Really love the colour of this picture.
It's so nostalgic and it brings back my childhood memories, Ginnie! smile
Thank you so much!
Ginnie Hart: It brings back memories for lots of us, LC, I see. smile Thank you.
I think you've brought back some mighty fine memories for many of us with this one, Ginnie. I have somewhere a professional portrait taken of me sitting proudly on my brand new shiny tricycle in front of a window in our living room of all places.
Ginnie Hart: I bet that professional portrait will be treasured by the generations below you for years to come, Beverly!!! Thanks.
Your treatment is great, this picture seems older than it is. A+ VAL smile
Ginnie Hart: Yes, Valérie, I really made it older than it is, didn't I! Merci.
Nicely shot, I really love the rustic feel. It also brings back memories of the tricycle I had =)
Ginnie Hart: Memories for a lot of us, I see, Brian. So fun. Thanks.
another wheel and it will soon be back on the road, nice pp ginnie
Ginnie Hart: I'm sure you're right, Derek. smile Thanks.

Hi Ginnie....you are a master of finding and shooting some fabulous old relics....i like it....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: The older we get, the easier it is to 'see' them, Peter, right? grin Thanks.
Love the shock-absorbers under the seat. Better to jump curbs with!

Why can I not get the image of Arte Johnson from Laugh-In out of my head?
Ginnie Hart: HA! Shock absorbers on a trike. I have such fond memories standing on the back of one of these, hanging on while my sister rode the trike, DB. The things we remember. smile
