Is your head also issued?

Marilyn Whiteley on February 25, 2008

Wonderful photo, Ian! Thank you for sharing it.

No one is likely to cast my head in gold, Urbie, and not even in bronze, or clay! Thanks for your visit to my gallery.


Ian Stehbens on February 25, 2008

Thanks Marilyn.

You are always so graciously affirming of us all. And I see you are taking me away from the churches of Russia, England and Canada, into the industrial settings and then back to India. Isn't it wonderful to explore the world with special friends, every day!

A top image Ian,nicely done ,Cheers Craig.

Thank you Craig and Marilyn again, as well.

I find the artwork of others very stimulating, though I don't always see what the original artist may have had in mind, for there is wide latitude in art. That being the case, I always go into an art exhibition with the possibility of creating something new out of the work, with my camera.

Some may not like either the original or even less so my work, but that which is significant for me will arrive on display somewhere eventually. So it gives me extra satisfaction when others appreciate it.

this is very good, like usual, Ian! we're arriving in Brisbane in about two weeks, and I guess we'll have to visit this place...

Best regards!

I must thankyou for another visit to my gallery, but express my delight that you are on your way across the "Big Pond" to begin your Australian visit. I am sorry Leo that I haven't emailed you directly, yet. I must look for your email address and connect with you. I'd like to know your intentions and whether you are here for an extended holiday or on a work assignment, or a working holiday.

Be assured that I would love to link up with you and provide some hospitality if at all possible. I am sure that if you are in Brisbane, then Sydney will be in your itinerary too. Connect with me direct on mirs at and we'll chat. I'm easy to find in an Australian telephone directory online.
