Superbe composition de cette photo. J'aime le moulin et les fleurs en premier plan.
Ginnie Hart: Merci, Martine. Lucky for us, the mill is only a block away from where we live.
Did someone kidnap Boat Friday? Sacrilegious!
Ginnie Hart: Boat Friday had become several things over the years, Larry...like Bike Friday, and Windmill Friday. Different strokes for different folks?

Beautiful complementary colors captured in the warm sunlight! An inviting PoV that makes me want ascend to see the entire windmill.
Ginnie Hart: In my case, Steven, I had just descended the stairs and then looked back. So glad I did. smile
An unusual p.o.v. that works well I feel, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Most kind of you, Frank. Thanks.
A wonderful view - it's fingers reaching high into the blue sky!
Ginnie Hart: One of the many faces of Nooit Volmaakt, Elizabeth! Thank you.
this is a very nice view point and also an approach to this windmill, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: I was glad I looked back, Ayush, after descending the stairs on my citadel walk. Thank you.

I love how you have made a feature of the foreground, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir. I was just glad I thought to look back after descending the stairs.

Ginnie Hart: Merci, Marie. Well, we need the rain, so dream on. Your day will come soon.

I love the lines in this picture, Ginnie. And I think "our" windmill stands proud against the blue sky, ready to grind us some flour...
A wonderful sight all the time.
Ginnie Hart: There are so many ways to see her,Astrid, aren't there! We are so lucky to have her so near us...grinding the flours you need for your wonderful breads! Bedankt.

I never realised the they were such a hilly landscape where you are smile I guess this is a bank to support the canal, though? I wonder why the windmill is "never perfect" - perhaps a compromise with its efficiency?
Ginnie Hart: It really isn't that hilly, Alan, but more the effect of the citadel's embankments, I think, plus the canal, yes. As to the name of the windmill, Astrid says it's Old Dutch and has more to do with the miller's work never being done...more than it's never being perfect. It's always been my question, too.

Ginnie Hart: Thankyou kindly, Philine. I was glad I looked back!

Those steps look very solid and secure Ginnie, not like rickety rotten wooden ones.
Ginnie Hart: Very solid and secure, indeed, Chad. Even I trust them. smile

een mooie compositie met deze lijnen Ginnie...

"The Nooit Volmaakt".. de naam alleen al vind ik bijzonder

Ginnie Hart: Bedankt, Willy. Astrid says the name is Old Dutch. smile
Prachtige compositie de trap leidt echt naar de molen.
Heerlijke frisse kleuren bij elkaar.
Ginnie Hart: Bedankt, Marjolein. I was glad to look back to seer this.
I was thinking maybe we can have a twin windmill post next Friday. But would you mind if I use my electric fan as my photo subject? smile Same diffrence, right?
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHA. That sounds like a good project, LC. smile
You have made a great composition here Ginnie, I'd like to go there, the steps would be good exercise for an ageing gentleman like me smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Brian. I usually walk down these steps and rarely up on my citadel walks. Good choice for me. HA!
Great composition Ginnie; I want to climb those stairs and explore the windmill! smile
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Martin, and be my guest! smile
A charming view. Love that deep blue sky Friendship
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Ruthie.
it's a big climb to the mill Ginnie... we are staying put...we are still sheltering in place until next week...but we are in no rush to head out....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: Take your time, Peter. Right now the virus is not really going away, so we all need to stay smart.

Excellent picture. What a clear blue sky - not even a contrail in sight.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Louis. Contrails, too, are at rest right now, for the most part.
That is wonderful. I love the composition using the stairs to lead us in.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.
Très sympa ta composition Ginnie, d'autant que j'aime beaucoup les moulins.
Bonne journée
Ginnie Hart: Merci, Pascale. I love the mills, too, and can never get to much of them!
