Wow! The ornate detail really "pops" in this composition! Excellent framing with nice symmetry as well.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Steven.
Que c'est beau, magnifique orgue !
Ginnie Hart: Merci, Martine. I LOVE organs like this!
this is so ornate, Ginnie. i like the decor and there are few inches that are not stacked with trimmings.
Ginnie Hart: Stacked with trimmings, indeed, Ayush. I like that observation. smile
Ornate really doesn't cover this instrument Ginnie. You have presented it very nicely.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Frank, and I know what you mean. I always search out these organs because my mom was a church organist (among other things) in her day. She would be gobsmacked by this one.
Beautiful image! You've captured it's decadence so well!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Elizabeth. The European organs like this just blow my mind!

Was there someone playing it, Ginnie?
Ginnie Hart: Sadly, Ray, not at the moment! sad
Beautiful organ buffet. An instrument that I have played a lot for about fifteen years. Interesting process
Ginnie Hart: Oh wow, Marie. I didn't know that about you. BRAVA!

That is quite the organ, Ginnie. All the details makes this in a piece of art. I love your presentation.
Ginnie Hart: Bedankt, Astrid. You know how much these organs remind me of Mom, and how gobsmacked she would be to see them.

I'd love to hear this organ. A pipe organ is something quite special. The decorations are incredible.
Ginnie Hart: I know, Alana, and I agree. Too bad we almost NEVER hear the organ when we visit churches. sad

A fine baroque scene Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Yes, indeed, Chad.
What a magnificent organ Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: It blows my mind, Bill. I didn't grow up with anything like this!
Très bel orgue et jolie photo.
Bonne journée Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Merci, Pascale.
this looks like a 3d picture, somehow... i can't explain haha... very very beautiful
Ginnie Hart: Now that I've looked at it again, Elaine, yes, it does. Most interesting. Thanks!
Wow, that is some organ, good to look at as well as to listen to no doubt.
Ginnie Hart: I'm sure of it, Brian! Thanks.
You're a wizard at capturing and presenting these gorgeous & ornate images, Ginnie. Incredible detail.
Ginnie Hart: Most kind of you, Beverly. Thank you.

have a nice day
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Willy. I love these ornate organs everywhere I go in Europe!
I just love how you present these with the faded colors and white vignette. Looks so beautiful. Friendship

The fine detail in this picture is just astounding.
Ginnie Hart: It really is, Louis, which is one of the reasons why I am so attracted to these European organs.
So many angels!
Hark the herald angels sing. wink

He he... but that's not my favourite Christmas song though.

It's "Jingle Bell Rock". What's yours? OMG four more months to go, tick tock tick tock.
Ginnie Hart: LOL, LC. You are so funny. I suppose if you're talking about FUNNY Christmas songs, mine would be "Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer." grin
Cet orgue est vraiment superbe !
Au vu de son grand age on peut imaginer une sonorité exceptionnelle ..j'adore les orgues !
Merci Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: I do, too, Claudine, and can just imagine what this one sounds like! Merci.
The Italians do like their decorations!
Ginnie Hart: Yes, they do, Tom!
