That's quite a conversation. I'm intrigued smile
Ginnie Hart: This was in the courtyard of a library next to the St. Paulus Dom, Sherri, and they were talking about the difference in the two complimentart architectural styles. Philine is an expert on architecture!

Ginnie Hart: If you can't speak with your hands, Rian, some of us can't understand what you're saying, Rian! grin Thanks.

good depiction of the the combination of emotions here!
Ginnie Hart: On both sides, I thought, Liang! I agree. Thanks.

A wonderful sequence, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: I thought so, too, Ray. smile Thanks.
is impressive, how many acts do, and do not realize it!!!!
It is said that Italians are among those who gesticulate more.. smile
Ginnie Hart: Philine would make a good Italian then, Fabrizio. smile She is such a great teacher!

smile.... I think Philine never saw you 'point and shoot', we talked about the 'old and modern style' buildings very close at each other.
Both colours are almost the same.
It is always a little awkward to see myself in pictures, but for some reason I get used to it.
I think this is a beautiful set of pictures of a dear friend of ours.
And again I like to thank Philine for the warm welcome and the wonderful weekend we had.
Ginnie Hart: Philine really is the consummate teacher and friend...always there when you need her! This sequence of the two of you was too good to NOT show here on SC. I hope Philine sees the wonderful humor in it, even as you do. smile

this is a comical set of pictures the last one being the punch line, your wit is subtle, i dig it lolol great work!!!
Ginnie Hart: I smile every time I see the sequence, Elaine. smile Thanks.
Who! Excellent! Gestures sometimes betray some character traits! I like the expression of Astrid who looks in the end very inspired! Ginnie good day.
Ginnie Hart: You can't help but smile by the end of it, Mathilde. smile Merci.
Thank you for this set of images Ginnie it is great to see those who comment on our blogs many many thanks. We all do it with our hands my wife often comments on me smile
Ginnie Hart: If we can't say it with our hands, Scotia, we are helpless! Thanks.

Great series of images. I can relate to Philine as I talk with my hands too!
Ginnie Hart: I'm guessing most of us do, Kala. It's more fun to see when others do it, of course. smile Thanks.

Well I bet you all had a good time in Munster Ginnie: I wish I'd been there as well
Ginnie Hart: We all would have had a blast together, Chris! Thanks.
I can't talk with my hands as I won't be able to look through my cameragrin, good sequence.
Ginnie Hart: Some people talk only with their camera, Nigel...I know. grin Thanks.
Philine is a delight to us all. I would love to have been with you three in Munster....must get a passporttongue
Ginnie Hart: With Chris, too, we all would have had a blast. Maybe one day all of us will find a common place to meet at the same time. That would be nice.

Superb photos Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Merci again, Antoine. smile
Excellent series Ginnie. It says everything about talking with the hands!
Ginnie Hart: If we don't talk with our hands, what can we really say, Richard??! smile Merci.

Lol, I can imagine what was being said, like a cartoon strip
Ginnie Hart: It does indeed have a beginning and an end, Etomi, doesn't it. smile
Is this what is known as a `conversation piece`? What a wonderful sequence of photographs. (:o)
Ginnie Hart: I love it, Roz...a 'conversation piece.' It still brings a smile to my face and I've seen it a hundred times! smile

Hahaha! - once teacher- always teacher! -oh, déformation professionnelle!- but I don't remember what I had to explain at this spot- but Münster has to offer some architectural and other highlights - nice body languages of us both, indeed! Thanks for your work, Ginnie (and Ginnie with her huge lens could not be overlooked, a professional photographer the people around might have said!)!
Ginnie Hart: You are such a good sport, Philine. This series delights me to no end...of both of you. And yes, you are right: once a teacher, always a teacher. smile

Oh yes, you are right, now I remember: We are standing in the courtyard of the modern Diocesan library built by the Swiss architect Max Dudler - next to the Gothic Überwasserkirche and the cathedral! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Max_Dudler - it is not raining!
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Philine. We carried umbrellas all day (you and Astrid did, I mean), but never had to worry about the rain. We were so grateful!
And bla bla bla, kiss to these two ladies, and for you Ginnie, good day...
Ginnie Hart: I'm sure it all made sense at the time, Pierrot. smile Merci.
Philine talks with her hands like I do. I like the sequential shots where we see this so plainly.
Ginnie Hart: It definitely tells its own story, Mary, doesn't it! smile Thanks.
well, you can make up all sorts of stories, what they are talking about...
Ginnie Hart: Precies, Chantal. smile
Wonderful presentation Ginnie. It works well especially the colours repeated. Philine is a Godsend to SC.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Chad...and I couldn't agree with you more. It's like she's our adorable mascot! smile

Did you guys go on a picnic afterwards. Philine's bags may hold enough smile I love how she gestures with the right hand as if there is no umbrella and picnic bag hanging on.

A nice action collage of the consummated pair :p
Ginnie Hart: HA! No picnic afterwards, Louis, but what a nice thought. She how much Astrid shows her respect!

Good collection of photos it must have been cold
Ginnie Hart: Cold but bearable, Vintage. The main thing was it didn't rain! Thanks.
Ladies do love to talk!
great candid series.
Ginnie Hart: Teachers especially, Martin. smile It was so fun to see. Thanks.
Love series Ginnie. So glad you had a wonderful Munster weekend.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Sheila. We'll never forget it.
Lovely series, Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Tom.

There sure is a lot of humour in the way we interact tongue

Love how the final image depicts a sense of satisfaction from a nice chin-wag tongue
Ginnie Hart: Yes there is, Fotografa. If we don't use our hands, we miss out on a whole new meaning of language! Thanks for stopping by and commenting again.
Great sequence Ginnie, Philine looks to be a very nice lady and we all know Astrid is anyway, I bet the three of you had a great time.
Ginnie Hart: Philine is delightful, Brian. She reminds me of my mom when she was alive--a walking encyclopedia! We had a great time together. Thanks.

Two words come to mind - "words" and "edgeways"! the expresion on the fourth one is priceless. Nice quadtych.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, George. This was fun. smile
What a wonderful animated sequence of photos, Ginnie. I would love to have been there to hear Philine's discourse on architectural styles. Nothing beats having a knowledgeable guide accompany you on tours like this one.
Ginnie Hart: We couldnn't have had a better guide to see Münster, Beverly! That's for sure. Thanks.
Almost like a movie Ginnie..it works well!
Ginnie Hart: I know. Thanks, Ron. smile

Very nice portraits! A nice touch is the autumnal leaves on the ground that match the colors of the background.
Ginnie Hart: It was a perfect day all around, Rob, as you can see! Thanks.
A nice sequence of expression smile
Ginnie Hart: I thought so, too, John. smile Thanks.

Talking architecture ...
nah Must be just girl talk

[grin]


Absolutely delightful Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: You'd be surprised by what some girls talk about, Richard. grin Thanks.
neat! I like catching people while they're conversing too. smile
Ginnie Hart: Especially when there's a real sequence, Heather, right?! smile Thanks.

what a nice succession of images. like looking at a comics page on the papers. two thumbs up!
Ginnie Hart: It IS comical, Maria, isn't it! grin Thanks.
great presentation, was she talking about fishing, thats what men do when they talk about the one that got away
Ginnie Hart: Well, not exactly, Derek. Believe it or not, she was talking about the architecture of the library and how, though modern, it compliments that of the nearby old church. Philine is an expert on architecture everywhere she goes. Thanks.

Ginnie Hart: Bingo, Peter! smile It's fun, isn't it! Thanks.
Cool - I definetely see the two different roles here in the "international language" wink
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Aksel. I love it. smile Thanks.
