Are we going to have a story here?

Ian Stehbens on February 15, 2008

Not this time, Marilyn.

The picture is the story. It was taken to tell its own story.

I thought it would be good visual stimulus for a high school English paper, though.

But I would love a Canadian to write the story.

Greetings, Ian

It's an intriguing photo that certainly stimulates the imagination, Ian! But I'll choose to keep my imaginings to myself. Marilyn

You've got an artistic soul, Ian :-)

regards, Rafal

So I am discovering more and more. I hope we keep in fellowship with each other. Thank you, Rafal.

Of course, Ian! It's a grat pleasure to know you!

Congratulation, Yan. Best wishes. Eva

Thankyou Eva for both the greetings and the appreciation.

Whaling is not part of Ukrainian history, unless I am very mistaken, but I think it is part of Canadian history, that's why I hoped Marilyn may have had a story. Of course, you can create one if you like.

Although I associate it with the northeastern coast of the United States, I guess that is part of Canadian history: I believe that my husband's father worked at a whaling station (not on a whaler) one summer in his youth. But I think that ambiguity now tends to eclipse the heroic nature of that story--which does not detract from the highly evocative photo!
