Lilly : When I checked in, they charged extra for use of the 'heated outdoor pool' !
Ronnie : I have hot water to spare here, Lilly - you have only to ask.
Lilly : That looks like it went off the boil around the time of The Mayflower .

That's what you call a classic kettle. Actually, it's a beauty.
15 Mar 2011 5:26am
@Steve Rice: I've been trying to remember how I acquired it . . had it for decades . . (Ronnie)
boy is that cold! how many kettles would it take to fill that pool, haha
15 Mar 2011 5:29am
Oh...Brrrrr. The old adage comes to mind, "Look before you leap!" :-) Careful Lily !
15 Mar 2011 6:41am
Perfect for my morning tea !
15 Mar 2011 8:07am
That kettle of boiling water would slide right into the frozen pool. I don't think Lilly will be happy with just one kettle though.
15 Mar 2011 8:13am
Love that kettle, and the way you have put it together, giving me a welcome smile on this grey morning :))
15 Mar 2011 8:26am
@Christine: With Lilly's shot taken through wired glass (!), I had been minded to use a glass slide on my side but, in these digital days, many folk would not know what it was ! (6x6 Ronnie)
Too bad for a pool... At least you can make nice cup of tea :)
15 Mar 2011 9:11am
Thanks for the smile. :-)
15 Mar 2011 9:13am
Think I'd settle for a cuppa ^^
15 Mar 2011 9:15am
Truly a helping hand indeed ... Both the pool and the Kettle are really beautiful. Thanks for the smile and laughter. Great, Ronnie. :)
15 Mar 2011 9:28am
Now now Lilly don't look a gift kettle in the spout
15 Mar 2011 9:48am
Best take the kettle and make a nice cup of tea in this weather! The kettle and Kodachrome - both classics!
15 Mar 2011 10:14am
11, 328 (The number of kettle fillings needed to fill the pool) Yep, I'm having a slow day... As always soooo very different, so good
15 Mar 2011 10:33am
15 Mar 2011 11:01am
Good choice with the processing - I like the wallpaper colour tone and wow...that beautiful kettle from the sixteen-twentys era :)) once again, an excellent arrangement of things.. Happy ST!
15 Mar 2011 11:27am
@Anne: ha ha . . Tuesday can last all week here ! (Ronnie)
what sheer awesomeness!!! you did that with a scanner? i have a scanner but have never used it, tooooooo lazy!!! your pictures always have an interesting dimension to them, who's the photographer? Ronnie or Lilly? and that was very nice of you to offer to warm up the pool for her, what a gentleman :)
15 Mar 2011 11:29am
@Elaine-: No scanner used here . . Lilly took her shot thu heated, toughened glass somewhere up by the Canadian border in sub-zero temps between state-to-state trips and I braved two frames in the warm studio in London between coffees. (Risk-taker Ronnie)
Cool..that's great...Enjoyable image.
15 Mar 2011 12:18pm
A superb composition !
15 Mar 2011 12:26pm
So you want to use of hot water to fill the swimming pool?! ;)
15 Mar 2011 12:56pm
Well...I here in some countries this is quite acceptable :)
Ah yes, the cleverness continues....I love this!
Perhaps it is time to give up on the idea of swimming? Hehe.. very cool
15 Mar 2011 1:44pm
You two are just too much! I'm laughing my head's off!!! You never stop to amaze and amuse! Happy Tuesday!:-)
15 Mar 2011 1:57pm
@hugo poon: Have a great day y'self, Hugo - take that X100 out for a drive !
Ronnie... you're so helpful! Lily, are you petite enough (like M.E.) to swim in the pot? LOL!
Great colors and once more an enjoyable, creative collaboration! LOVE YOUR WORK (and conversations) - all of it!
15 Mar 2011 2:12pm
Must be one of those Polar Bear Club Hotels where they dip in icy waters!
15 Mar 2011 2:48pm
You made me laugh heartily friend! I love the composition photo and your message ... A great idea and very creative! A hug, Adela
15 Mar 2011 3:05pm
Apparently there wasn't many who paid the extra charge. May be they got also a kettle of hot water.
15 Mar 2011 6:31pm
This is a fabulous composition - with another great combination of the present and the past. And the white background really makes the slide come to life :)
15 Mar 2011 6:46pm
What is not to celebrate here? We have a beautiful copper water kettle - a heated pool (albeit at an additional charge) - some hanging plants - and a bit of an M. C. Escher effect! Brilliant! Bravo! A propose we book passage aboard the Mayflower at once!
15 Mar 2011 6:49pm
@Stephen Phillips: "All Aboard" !!
15 Mar 2011 6:54pm
Très très jolie bouilloire ...
agréable et juste suffisante pour le thé
15 Mar 2011 7:14pm
I like the slide insert. Well done. I used to love my slide processing.
15 Mar 2011 7:18pm
@Philip: Yes, there was a strong sense of involvement processing slides . . that E6 process was so demanding I doubt I could tolerate it today. (Ronnie)
Ahh the good old days !
15 Mar 2011 8:06pm
very creative... used to love slides
15 Mar 2011 8:29pm
I like the texture of this one ! Cheers
15 Mar 2011 8:35pm
good idea! But you will need a lot of those hands!
15 Mar 2011 8:51pm
Two big smiles: your pics (lovely kettle!) and dialogue :-)) ànd Grousers comment :-DDDDDDDD
15 Mar 2011 8:52pm
@Marleen: Ah, yes, our Grouser has a wonderful way with words ! Thanks, Marleen. (Ronnie)
Another fun contribution to aminus3 community, with a beautiful and old pileup (here you may see another Spanish-style ...) and an original composition... ;-)
15 Mar 2011 10:12pm
@CAAZ: Big Smiles ! Yes, I remember that red pot - and I'd made a Comment on it, too ! (Ronnie)
really super shot, and on a night that my photography club called a close to slide comps, a sad end
15 Mar 2011 10:40pm
@Alun: Closing of an era there, Alun . . . I have some 6x6 and 645 slides that still have killer quality against anything digital. (Ronnie)
i remember i was told that the pool at a hotel we were staying at was heated but when we went in it was still freezing cold! We came up wtihin minutes before hyperthermia sets in,haha. I never trusted "Heated pools" after that! But hey that kettle is REALLY vintage man!:)
16 Mar 2011 12:18am
I like how the sides of the pool stand out against the snow to reveal an interesting shape for a pool. I sure hope this was not a recent photograph, but one that was taken months ago. :-)
16 Mar 2011 1:41am
A very cool shot! Copper kettle and kodachrome, those were the days...
16 Mar 2011 2:23am
@Bill Brown: ah, yes, happy days !
This is a very wonderful and creative idea!!!!! Very cool effects and very funny!!!! Love it!!!!!
16 Mar 2011 2:28am
Nice shots ! and as usual, a very nice presentation !
16 Mar 2011 4:20am
like the cool shot! nice story to go with it! have a great day!
16 Mar 2011 11:18am
no thanks! i'll stay on the couch!
16 Mar 2011 11:51am
LOL!!!!! very funny and creative
16 Mar 2011 1:04pm
So clever. So skillful. And so much fun. With just a hint of can-do grandiosity. I love it.
16 Mar 2011 2:51pm
A fine conception and execution of the idea. Well done.
16 Mar 2011 2:53pm
ha, one of the best among many great ones!
16 Mar 2011 3:29pm
@Franz: Double-Thanks, Franz !
to good love your work
16 Mar 2011 6:00pm
What a great idea... nicely done ! Have a lovely day :)
16 Mar 2011 6:03pm
16 Mar 2011 6:21pm
@yz: Yup, I've moved up from Autochrome . . . big improvement ! (Ronnie)
Lolll ... Good luck Ronnie :)) Good day.
16 Mar 2011 6:34pm
Kodachrome Transparency!! Wow, does that bring back memories (or is it nightmares, now that we have digital?!) I'd hate to go back to that. As always, creative shot!
16 Mar 2011 6:52pm
@B. Thomas: Yeah, photo-world was so different back then that it is impossible to compare, really. Film still has latitude advantages but there's little else I miss. (Ronnie)
great concept whahaha
16 Mar 2011 10:04pm
I am watching today's BBC news in front your TV set!^-^
16 Mar 2011 11:31pm
hmm they would have to pay me for the use of anything outside......looks freezing..haha it is!!
love how you put this together......i think a sense of humour goes along way:))
16 Mar 2011 11:44pm
the idea of a cup of tree is so comforting.
17 Mar 2011 3:10am
That will be a hell of job to fill that pool Ronnie! ;) I'm 100% certain now that you live in a museum, but still have to figure out in which one :)
17 Mar 2011 7:56am
@Monique: Closed on Mondays and Thursdays, Monique ! . . hee hee . . (Curator Ronnie)
Belle inspiration ! Je te souhaite une agréable journée
17 Mar 2011 11:28am
Un montage très original !!
Bien fait !!
17 Mar 2011 11:29am
Very creative...I love the copper kettle!
17 Mar 2011 12:32pm
Haha... wonderful. That sure is a pretty kettle. Bundle up, sit in a deck chair by the snowy pool, enjoy a nice cup of vintage tea. Maybe a touch dusty tasting, but very comforting.
17 Mar 2011 3:24pm
funny image and very clever compo
17 Mar 2011 5:40pm
Not to mention it would take about a hundred years to fill up the pool with that kettle! Very funny.
17 Mar 2011 5:42pm
this is hilarious. Oh my! What a great scene and text. Just love it. Brilliant!
18 Mar 2011 3:10am
Very funny !!! I love !
18 Mar 2011 5:42am
Your responces to the comments is just as entertaining as the L/R dialogue.
18 Mar 2011 7:01am
@Mike Baker: Thanks Mike ! Because of the way we go about these postings, there is, often, a real story to go with the script - we like to share it where we can. (L&R)
Oh my word! I only just reaslised the pool is "filled" with snow. Gosh I don't think that cute little kettle is going to do the thing, you'll have to pay the extra charges for the heated pool :)
(I'm still in shock about the snow in the pool... lol! Living in a city that NEVER 'sees' snow and has temperatures of between +8 to +17 °C in winter this is quite a sight :)
18 Mar 2011 7:34am
@✿ Anina ✿: Yes, this was somewhere up near the Great Lakes in February . . after blizzards and ice storms !
another great one. Patience lilly you might have a swim sometime.
18 Mar 2011 5:36pm
18 Mar 2011 10:31pm
There's no doubt that this Kodachrome kettle does wonders when rubbed gently.
20 Mar 2011 11:23pm
21 Mar 2011 9:10am
well done !! so cool!
28 Mar 2011 9:32pm
mmm .. and im ready to dive in, after you prepare it :D
