Yes...worth looking Up for this treat, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: As the Dutch say, Ray, we were "short of eyes" in this cathedral.
i can gain inspiration from your quote and your splendid image, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Ayush!
Quels magnifiques détails et décor !
Ginnie Hart: Merci, Martine. It did catch the eye!
These builders certainly did though Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Oh, yes, Frank, for sure!
SUCH beauty - and light! Love your photo!
Rule #1 - Don't sweat the small stuff
Rule #2 - It's all small stuff
(So says Robert Fulghum!)
Ginnie Hart: It's so easy to get caught up in the details, Elizabeth (especially if you're a detail person, like I am). I've learned to love what the Dutch say, that they're "short of eyes" when there's so much to take in.

I love this point of view, Ginnie. The details are amazing....There is so much to see here.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Astrid. We were definitely "short of eyes" in that cathedral.

I'm sure this whole building is one giant artwork Ginnie. The details here are complex and wonderful
Ginnie Hart: You've hit the nail on the head, Chris!
Un bel ouvrage et une belle lumière pour ce cliché.
Bonne journée Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Merci, Pascale. There was way too much to see in our short time there!
Mooie quote en foto en als je intenser om je heen lijkt, zie je nog meer moois. Net als bij jou op de pilaren.
Ginnie Hart: Inderdaad, Marjolein. There was too much to see in the short time we had!

The cathedral is a tremendous work of art Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: It truly is, Chad. It's easy to get lost "in the trees."
Rho que j'aime ça !!!
Ta photo est superbe
Ginnie Hart: Many kind thanks, Claudine. Merci.
So much detail to absorb Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Too much for the short time we were there, Bill. (sigh)

een prachtige detailfoto uit deze befaamde kathedraal Ginnie

have a nice day
Ginnie Hart: Bedankt, Willy. One could be there a long time and never catch them all!
I apologise in advance for using that much overused word these days but 'WOW' what a terrific photo of some beautiful and artistic building work.
Ginnie Hart: As far as I'm concerned, Brian, you never have to apologize for using a WOW. smile Thank you kindly.
There is light in all the right places. smile
Ginnie Hart: It was quite amazing, Mary.

Sweating the small stuff, depends on the time you have available. When you get around, just with the big stuff, you are bound to lose the foundation.

Great picture, with a lot of small stuff smile
Ginnie Hart: The time available gets less and less, Louis, instead of more and more. HA! But we do the best we can, right? smile Thanks.
a magnificent sculpture to top the pillar Ginnie... you captured the details very well with a long lens....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: Just think of all the people who never look up, Peter, to see the "small stuff." Thanks.
Wonderful decoration, Ginnie! A real feast for the eyes smile
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Martin. I have a feeling we missed SO MUCH!
The upper and lower parts of this column look out of alignment?
I like the ceiling gold stars on the blue background though. Very European indeed.

I wonder that's where the EU got their inspiration.
Looks like a no-deal Brexit is inevitable now?! What should I stock up?
Ginnie Hart: As you'd guess, LC, that "out of alignment" drives me crazy, but the camera does not lie. What's a poor girl to do, right?

Don't get me started on what's happening right now with the no-deal Brexit. I'm appalled by what's going on!!!
A fine capital
Ginnie Hart: Befitting the cathedral it was in, Tom!

I was just in such a place...so much to shoot, so little time! This is presented so well.
Ginnie Hart: I know exactly what you mean, Bonnie! So little time and we were "short of eyes." Thank you.
