Dry feet can be a challenge...
Ginnie Hart: Indeed so, Ray.
I love your processing!!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Elizabeth.

There goes my sense of balance! Great processing used here to bring out nice textures. The subtle colors really "pop"!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Steven. One does need to use caution, for sure!
Jolies ruines, il y a beaucoup de monde malgré la pluie.
Ginnie Hart: As a UNESCO World Heritage site, Martine, this place is always busy, rain or shine.
You captured this well Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Most kind of you, Frank.

Such an unusual picture, Ginnie - I do like it
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Lisl. I was just glad I had at least this one photo of the huge stones after Astrid and I started comparing.

I always say: "leave it to the Romans". So simple and so useful. I love your point of view. What a place to visit.
Ginnie Hart: Leave it to the Romans, indeed. We have so much for which we owe them, Astrid. Bedankt.

The mystery of numbered walls
Ginnie Hart: I'm sure it's a good cataloging system, Chris!

a fine addition to Aastrid's image today! I have never been in Pompeji, but I read much about this place.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Philine. I suspect that one day you will visit Pompeii, and if so, you will love it.
Des courageux malgre tout !
Bravo pour le traitement de la photo
Ginnie Hart: Merci, Claudine. It's amazing how one can visit such a place and really learn how they lived all those centuries ago!
Oh, wat leuk om nu het geheel te zien.
Zeg maar tegen Astrid dat mijn commentaar dus verkeerd is ;-0
Die stromende regen is dus minder :-(, maar roept wel een erg mooi sfeerbeeld op
Ginnie Hart: I just let Astrid know,Marjolein. HA! It's amazing how the story changes when you can see the entire setting. Bedankt.

Interesting to see your view of these and that of Astrid. I wonder if the width between the cart wheel was 4ft 8.5in before these were put in place or did these help define that width?
Ginnie Hart: Your guess is as good as mine, Alan, but I assume with the Romans they did NOT put the cart before the horse? grin
Hummmmmmm, de la pluie, tu me donne envie de plonger dans ta photo.
Bonne journée Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: So fun, Pascale. Merci.

Cleverly designed so that only there own cartwheels fit, others cannot pass. A tax raising scheme Ginnie. That is one thing I remembered from out guided tour.
Ginnie Hart: Those Romans were pretty smooth operators, Chad, weren't they!
A fine companion picture to Astrid's ,Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.
something about the people down at the end, seemingly unable to cross, reminds me of zombie movies lol i'm not sure why... cool pic
Ginnie Hart: That's just another street, Elaine, and they're obviously going straight ahead without turning onto our street. Very often our guide chose a street based on how many tourists were NOT on it. HA!
I visited Pompeii a very long time ago but I was very touched at the time by the history of this village and throughout my visit I had imagined all these people dead and buried in their house. A moving place where your treatment is going well
Ginnie Hart: It's really a devastating story when you think about it, Marie. For us to see the place all these centuries later, trying to imagine what it was like, is quite humbling. Merci.
But they're fun to cross!
I wish someone would build some floating stones for me to get to Europe smile
Ginnie Hart: HA! Now THAT would be something, LC...and a long but fun hop, skip and a jump! grin
Umbrellas are needed here today too, with Canada Day celebrations changing in some places.
Ginnie Hart: So sorry about the rain there, Mary, on your special holiday. It rained the entire 2 hours of our tour in Pompeii but at the very end, the sun came out. Maybe you'll get the sun, too, today.
I like your point of view. Friendship
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Ruthie.
A very fine picture Ginnie, so much of interest to see especially the stepping stones.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Brian. It's all about the stepping stones today. smile
I love everything about this image, Ginnie. Well done!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Beverly.

I thought this is in Droitwich, you know, where it rains all the time.
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHA! Bill would get a kick out of that, Louis. smile
