J'aime beaucoup ces reflets sur la maison de la bière.
Ginnie Hart: They were just begging to be captured, Martine. Merci.

Beautiful reflections off the facade which add increased depth to this composition! Perfectly framed as well.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.
Nice work, Ginnie! The planters remind me of cups and saucers! Maybe I'm due that comfort drink... smile
Ginnie Hart: HA on the cups-and-saucers planters. I really like that idea! smile
You and Astrid are in reflections this morning. I like very much when the glass walls of a building reflect the images of parts we don't see. Lovely light!
Ginnie Hart: It's one of the fun things about photography, Marie, isn't it. Merci.

No one sitting out to enjoy a mid-morning drink, Ginnie. Even the reflections look cold!
Ginnie Hart: It was so windy that day, Lisl, I was sure it could be a Code Orange like we've had these last few days. Thankfully it was mostly without rain.

That was a windy day out there, I wonder how it was there the last few days, almost impossible to walk is my guess, Ginnie. You already were blown away in that passageway....
I love the reflections here.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Astrid. There were many times I couldn't hold my camera still because it was so blustery. I'll never forget it. smile

Mine is coffee Ginnie, but I'm trying to cut down. Beer I long ago had to give up..
Ginnie Hart: We both had a latte macchiato that day, Chris, in a coffee shop just behind my back in this same courtyard. It's safe to say that THAT is our best comfort drink...but one we only have while out-n-about, since we don't make them at home.
Magnifique reflet ....bravo
Ginnie Hart: Merci, Claudine. smile

Sounds like a day to take that comfort drink indoors, though. A lovely the reflections in the windows.
Ginnie Hart: We did, in fact, have a latte macchiato inside the coffee cafe behind my back, Alan. It was a lovely day to remember...when I picked up my next-5-years staying permit.

Those plant pots made me think of Dizneyland, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Well, then. Disneyland it is, Ray. Just for you. smile
Some fine reflections Ginnie. You and Astrid are clearly in reflective mood today
Ginnie Hart: HAHA! I like when we are unexpectedly on the same page, Bill. smile
i don't like the the taste of heineken sad
i think my fave comfort drink would come from starbucks, also another nice sign to take pics of.. in the same fam as ur nice pic
Ginnie Hart: Having worked at Starbucks for a few months, Elaine, and realizing how much sugar is in most of their drinks (especially the ones I like!), I steer clear of that place now. HA! A good ol' latte macchiato nowadays makes my heart sing. And I do NOT say NO to a Heineken, even if I'd usually choose a different beer. smile

We only visited the art gallery in Den Haag Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: One of the places we have NOT yet visited, Chad.
Jij hebt ook al z'n prachtige weerspiegeling, een stadstoppertje
Ginnie Hart: It was a perfect day for picking up my new 5-year staying permit, Marjolein! smile
Bien vu les reflets (et là  pas de mousse ;-)
Bonne journée Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Merci, Pascale. smile
I came across the word "hof" quite often in Holland. I thought it was "house".
If so, isn't Hof House tautological?
Ginnie Hart: Actually, LC, "hof" is courtyard, which is, of course different than house. But I do get your point. Our coffee café was just behind me in the same hof. smile
Great image, lots of different shapes, reflections and an inviting place to retire for morning coffee, it doesn't come much better.
Ginnie Hart: Add to it all the wind, Brian, and you get my kind of day! smile
SUperb reflection and light. Friendship
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Ruthie.

Been to the Heineken place in A'dam. Were comforted there. Your conversion says "blustery".
Ginnie Hart: I have often passed the Heineken place, Louis, but have never visited it. Maybe one day? But yes, I do love blustery. smile
Lovely composition, Ginnie! The reflections make for quite a view... smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Sudipto. It was just calling for a photo, I thought. smile

knappe spiegelingen in deze mooie foto Ginnie

Heineken is bij ons niet zo geliefd

ik verkies een kopje koffie...

greetings
Ginnie Hart: I prefer a latte macchiato, Willy, so we're on the same page. I never say NO to a Heineken, though I much prefer your fabulous Belgian beers!
that Heineken brewery sure has a lot of buildings in it Ginnie...
this is just a great composition....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.
Good reflections opening up the image, Ginnie smile
Ginnie Hart: It always helps when you get a chance to see more than what you're looking at, Martin! smile
