He does not look lost, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: I agree, Ray! smile
Looks like a real fun guy... smile
Ginnie Hart: He could definitely look more menacing, Larry! smile
There are so many things to capture along the Avon Ginnie... a fine stone sculpture....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: It was a great day trip, Peter! Thanks.
Love the textures!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Robin. It's amazing how weather and time add their own textures! smile
there is a good find. it is surprising how many interesting things are around us and we are probably walking around with all attention focussed on a handheld device.
Ginnie Hart: So true, Ayush. It makes you wonder how many things we're all missing, even when we're looking! We just can't see it all!
Nice shot of that handsome fellow.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Michael. It was hard to say NO to him. grin

I like all the different graininess in this, Ginnie. You have caught a very patient man there!
Ginnie Hart: Weather and time have done their grand work, Lisl, to make this man very patient and downright charmning. smile

Not somewhere- I know where we are and I took this head, too - a beautiful photo of this expressive face!
Ginnie Hart: Don't you just love it when you recognize something someone else has seen, Philine. smile

I wonder what is going through his head....
Wonderful details in this picture. What is new about '.....is watching you?'wink
Ginnie Hart: Nothing new under the sun, for sure, MLMA. He's everywhere. Some places he looks better than elsewhere, though. HA!

The first kind of an 'observation camera', Ginnie? ;-)
Ginnie Hart: I like that, HF. I wonder which is creepier??? grin

Certainly has the eyes that follow...
Ginnie Hart: ...no matter where you stand, Mike! sad
He he... You're not going to believe this?! I just re-watched "V for Vendetta" three days ago!
Ginnie Hart: I must have known, LC! smile

Just imagine having a CCTV system implanted in it to watch over those ne'er do well locals wink
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Alan. Makes you wonder, right?!
The watcher on the wall
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, John.
He looks like a man of the church. I love that so many of you Shutterchancers have visited Bradford on Avon (courtesy of Lisl) and so many of us are linked by looking at pictures of things and places we all know.
Ginnie Hart: I know, Suzanne. It's wonderful! smile
It seems that he was calling you to take a picture Ginnie! Well spotted and captured.
Ginnie Hart: He was definitely calling me, Richard. smile Thanks.
Wonderful textures & light, Ginnie. Wonder how many people he's watched pass by over the years.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Beverly, and a good question. Probably more than we can guess!
wow Ginnie! he looks scary for a Monday... great shot anyway!
Ginnie Hart: He could look much worse, Ronky, and that's my story! smile

Hello Ginnie girl, why so stoned faced? lighten up hahahaha... love this shot
Ginnie Hart: HA! Nothing stone-faced about me, of course, as you already know. smile Thanks.
These faces are always interesting Ginnie. I wonder who he was?
Ginnie Hart: It does make you wonder, Bill. I do know that on our cruise awhile back we saw a character like this in a cathedral who was the arcitect. You never know!
This is a particularly good one isn't it. One day Maureen and I will have to visit Bradford on Avon, which might mean another Cotswold holiday, oh dear, how tiresome smile
Ginnie Hart: LOL, Brian. To visit everything in your incredible country would take several lifetimes, I'm afraid!

looks like he has been there for some time Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: A couple years or so, Paul. smile

Looking at the size of those pupils, he must be high on something (something other than the wall).
Ginnie Hart: Kinda makes you wonder, Louis, doesn't it! smile

I agree with Larry, Ginnie. Looks like a fun guy! tongue

I meant to tell you, that if you do head back to Nova Scotia, have you done Cape Breton? that was one of the places I missed out on. And really wanted to go.

And to further my last comment, how great it is for your blogging community to meet up! I find it difficult to see bloggers who comment with such thought, like you & Peter. It must have been such fun. smile
Ginnie Hart: I need to go back to my images, Emily, to see if we made it to Cape Breton. We were on a cruise and did some excursuons, but I just don't remember. Sad, I know!

But, yes, we are so lucky to have met each other...so many of us!

He seems to have his beady eye on us!!
Ginnie Hart: All the better to see us with, Cherry. grin
He seems very intense!! Great find, Ginnie!!
Ginnie Hart: ...in a gentle sort of way, right, Elizabeth? smile
