She's dressed for the dance, but in danger of remaining a wallflower.

Wonderful image, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: I like that, Ray...a wallflower! Thanks.
Is that a sail? A decoration? I've never seen anything like that before...
Ginnie Hart: Those are fishing nets, JP, hung up over the weekend before going out to sea again on Monday. smile

Friday is the time to arrive into the harbour, get the catch to the shop and the laundry to the wife and make some repairs... Sunday at midnight they sail again....
This is a boat to catch shrimps, you can tell by the aluminum boiling pots on the deck, they catch the shrimps and get boiled right after to keep them fresh.
This is a wonderful picture and I think you did her proud.
I never get tired walking the harbour of Oudeschild.
Ginnie Hart: Bedankt, MLMAMV. I learned a lot from you that day in Oudeschild!

What a fascination view. I like the symmetry of the fishing nets. As usual, your fine processing adds to the scene.
Ginnie Hart: You're very kind, Alan. Thank you.

Oh, I love these fishing cutters we find at the Northsea, too
- Heliomare means 'Sunsea' - there is a vivid atmosphere in the harbour- the people are enjoying the sun - and I enjoy the beautiful seawater with all the golden reflections! "Dressed up to the Nines' is a funny phrase ('aufgetakelt' in German).
Ginnie Hart: Bedankt, Philine. This harbor was so fun for me because it was mostly about fishing boats instead of pleasure boats. But that weekend, as they rested, it felt like they became pleasure boats, enjoying the high-life of the harbor. smile
You wouldn't have thought fishing nets could look so elegant smile
Ginnie Hart: I know, Bill. That's what I thought! smile Thanks.

Looks like she doing the can can with the dress held high
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Vintage. HA! I like that thought.
I thought the fishing nets looked like curtain tassels. Cool shot. I also like Vintage's comment. lol
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Jacquelyn. I love what other commenters come up with! smile Thanks.
Yes, fisherman and texel, they belong together. Nice warm colors here Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Inderdaad, Chantal. Bedankt.

I like the way you see this as (possibly) a woman dressed in her finery Ginnie. A lovely shot
Ginnie Hart: All that fringe and tassels, Chris...a dead give-away. grin Thanks.

Very interesting, I have not seen the nets displayed like that before.
Ginnie Hart: In all their finery...that's how I saw them, Cherry. Thanks.
What fancy nets this ship is sporting. Lovely boat Friday shot, Ginny.
Ginnie Hart: Pretty snazzy, Mary, if you ask me! Thanks.

Really does look like it's going to a fishing boat party!!
Ginnie Hart: i like that, Mark! Thanks.
Now that's quite an outfit. Never saw a boat decorated in this fashion, quite interesting. smile

Wonderful shot, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Jimi. It sure caught my eye. smile

I am satisfied that you like(love), that very pleases me...kiss...

Its good job it had nowhere to go, otherwise we would not be seeing this beautiful image. I Love its dressy nets smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Linda. Astrid says this is what they do over the weekend when they dry the nets and see if anything needs to be mended. Makes sense to me.
Excellent composition. Good reflection in the water. a greeting
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Pedro. Gracias.

Just waiting to go fishing. Anchovies?
Ginnie Hart: They're resting over the weekend, Rob, before leaving again bright and early Monday morning. Not anchoivies but shrimp. Astrid doesn't think they have anchovies in the Netherlands. smile
Lovely shot Ginnie, I'm glad Astrid explained what sort of fishing this boat would do.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Brian, and leave it to Astrid! grin
What great light!! It really brings out the detail in the nets and rigging. Its amazing how you can make a worker like this look her best if the light is right.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Mark, for stoppong by and commenting.
Great Boat Friday Ginnie. I have never seen anything like it and she does appear to be in a festival mood. Lovely colours, light and reflections
Ginnie Hart: Thanks a million, Janet. It was new to me, too! smile
Fantastic frilly nets, makes a super image.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks a million, Martin. HEY! Where have you been lately?????? I've missed you.
Awesome shot Ginnie! She's all ready for the dance!! smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Adam. That's what I thought!
WOW! This amazing ship looks like an old galleon. Beautiful colors and composition, beautiful picture.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Foto'S. She sure caught my eye!
Beautiful shot Ginnie.... the hanging nets on the boat reminds me a butterfly just taking off for a flight lol....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Peter, and YES...I see the butterfly, in all her glory!
looks like a bunch of tourists at a cafe on docks! just admiring this big boat!
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Dennis. Good eyes. Thanks.
She looks like a sea bird ready to take off.
Ginnie Hart: What a sweet thought, Michael. I like that! Thanks.

I had never seen it, it really is incredibly beautiful! Ginnie nice day.

As the tails of a coat! the sails give an elegant silhouette and air this boat! I love the tone of your images Ginnie paradoxically desat lightly illuminates the whole of such a beautiful way! Good weekend!
Ginnie Hart: You are such a sweetheart, Mathilde. MERCI!
Superb capture, lots of details. Nice work!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Mats.
El tono como siempre le queda ideal a la foto. Una buena edición.

Love this boat! Great capture smile
Ginnie Hart: Thanks a million, Sil.
What a fantastic image Ginnie. It is shots like this that make photo blogging so much fun and interesting. I have never seen anything like this before. The elaborate and "decorative" nets are fabulous.
Ginnie Hart: You're very kind, Doug. Thank you. This was new for me, too!
I've never seen this before, the nets hung up for the weekend.....I like it, especially combined with your imagination wink
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, dear Aksel. It really caught my eye because it was new for me, too!

those are fishing nets, right? they look like fluffies on a woman's dress.. smile nice capture..
Ginnie Hart: Yes, Rian, fishing nets hung up to dry over the weekend before they're put out to sea again on Monday morning! Thanks.
Nice shot Ginnie, what method of net fishing and what do they catch? Aha! Shrimp nets that makes sense smile
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, John, and yes...shrimp nets! smile

That's an impressive boat. What is the brown "feather" Like things around the net?
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Frida, and great question. I'll have to ask Astrid when she comes home. Interestingly, you're the first to ask that! smile

Fishing! i don't like the massive fishing... sad

Super colours
Ginnie Hart: Big-time commercial fishing wouldn't be for me either, Oscar, except for reaping the benefits of the fish in a restaurant. smile Gracias.

Such beautiful light and composition. And I like to see similar colours of different elements echoing each other like, in this case, the roof and the fishing nets.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, dear George!
Some differences, but very much like our shrimp fleet boats - especially the larger ones.

Ah! I just saw Astrid's comment. They are shrimping boats! And very beautiful, I must say. The russet and teal is one of my favorite combinations - whether it's Taos sandstone and turquoise doors or the more muted tones of my Mucha avatar. The combination makes me happy.
Ginnie Hart: Yes, Linda, commercial shrimp boats. I had never seen the nets hanging like this elsewhere. And I agree about that color combination: HAPPINESS personified. smile Thanks.
