Love that kid's windmill, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Ray, but don't forget the HEART (HART) right next to it!!! smile
Nice capture Ginnie smile I love the color tone to this photo it compliments the subject of the composition very nicely.
Ginnie Hart: Thank ypu and thank you, Frances. It's a unique, lovely complex.
What a gorgeous facade! I love the heart! I'll check V&V tomorrow!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Elizabeth. The heart AND the windmill, side by side: American Ginnie and Dutch Astrid. smile

Hope to see this just after new years eve
Ginnie Hart: Good for you, Vintage if you do! YAY.
Gorgeous shot, Ginnie.
I have been trying to comment for so many weeks but just couldn't. I finally figured out the problem. I had switched to Google Chrome for a browser and it just would not let me get at the comment box properly. Went back to Firefox and it works. Who would have figured.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Michael. So glad you figured out what was wrong...but I'm guessing Google Chrome needs to fix that? Or maybe it's SC. I'll let John know.

Isn't that a wonderful example of serendipity Ginnie: windmill and heart
Ginnie Hart: It still blows my mind, Chris. smile Of all the symbols that could have been put together side by side!!! Thanks.

Oh, anniedog introduced this lovely word some time ago, her, your, and my favourite one! (later I'll read your V&V) Yes, I remember these fine details at the Royal Crescent ( and at other Georgian buildings) in Bath- and every one has its symbolic meaning! You captured finely the golden-warm toning of the Bathian sandstone
Ginnie Hart: Who would have believed of all the symbols these two would be side-by-side and exactly where I looked up! It really did blow my mind, Philine! Bedankt.

H(e)art and a windmill...
I just love it, we both saw it in the same time when we looked at all the small ornaments.
Wonderful colours and tones.
2 Years in Holland this day, time flies smile
Ginnie Hart: It did seem like the perfect image for our milestone today, MLMA. Our whole life together is like one big serendipity. smile Bedankt.

I love Bath
Ginnie Hart: I do, too, Aussie. It's WONderful. Thanks.
nice details in this interesting closeup
Ginnie Hart: Did you notice the heart (Hart) and the windmill side-by-side, Fabrizio??? smile Grazie.
Hello ginnie, I do not have connection anymore to me, I am in WiFi in the coffee, I move only the next weekend into my new apartment finally. I took up my apartment last Wednesday kiss and good day, I shall iron one of these days...
Ginnie Hart: I am very honored, Pierrot, to be part of your WiFi time in the café. Merci! Take care of yourself while you move. Be safe.

Well spotted Ginnie, I did not know that the circus sported a windmill motif.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Chad. Now you know why it totally shocked me...and right next to a heart (hart)! Who would have expected that!
Bath is nearly as nice as Droitwich grin
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHA. Surely you jest, Bill??? grin

Such a great find!! So much happy symbolism in this image!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Marcie. We couldn't have made that happen if we had tried. smile
Very nice!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Victoria.
I'll be reading it after the photos. This building looks like it is made of gold.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Mary. Did you see the heart (hart) and the windmill? smile

Excellent shot, full of details and the colors are warm and nice. smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Mats!
Those windmills pop up all over the place smile
Ginnie Hart: Yes, they do, Tom, but not always right next to a Hart! smile
One can see here an early prototype for a gaming machine also later known as a one-armed bandit, of course the chances of getting 4 windmills in a row would indeed indicate serendipity. Nice shot.
Ginnie Hart: But a windmill and a heart (hart) side-by-side? That's almost a miracle, John. grin
A windmill in Bath?
Beat that Holland. wink
Ginnie Hart: A windmill next to a heart (hart), LC. THAT'S a miracle. smile
It was just waiting there all this time for you to discover, Ginnie. Luckily, you did, and now look how happy it has made you. Yes, I would say it is serendipitous and supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!!!
Ginnie Hart: HA! I LOVE that word, Beverly, and so perfect for an English picture. grin THANK YOU.
This all ties in nicely to give you your V.& V.today Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir!
nice one.
They don't make 'em like this any more!!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Rob, and no they don't!

A windmill and a heart. How apropos for you two!

Fine word on the Vision & Verb site, Ginnie. I've not been to Bath for many years. I planned to go last Saturday but it never worked out. Definitely this year. though - 26 days to do it! Look at the joys that await me.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Alan, for reading my V&V. That means a lot. You'll love seeing Bath again, I'm sure. I'll never forget it (this was my second time).

Nice, I like this word, serendipity. I also like your image of discovery. It looks Romanesque, but has a Dutch flair about it.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Rob. I loved the moment I saw this. smile

What a lovely moment for you when you looked up Ginnie. Beautifully captured in gold.
Ginnie Hart: It totally made my day, Janet! Thank you.
Lovely image!
And I love the word serendipity. The girl I used to take care of has chosen this word for her nick name... and I find it so cool because it suits her sooooo well smile
Ginnie Hart: I have always loved this word, too, Jozica. I would love it as a name! Thank you.
