  1. I read you side log- your little disclaimer of sorts and you sound like a very interesting person, a good person, an open-minded, caring person- my favorite kind! I love your "love" images for Valentines-

  2. An interesting, well rounded grouping on different "loves." United by the black and white photo medium. Brava!

    Rodin's pieces have so much energy. I've seen almost none of the marble work, though - so this was a bonus for me.

  6. I think that should be "Mother and Children" from the looks of her.

    I love your Valentine. Thank You. And Happy Valentine's Day to you.

  11. I'm glad I came back to see the one that was missing. It's Yin and Yang! Beautiful image - very peaceful.

  12. Re the Lynes: It may be a racially-charged cliche' . . . but I still think there's something so beautiful about the contrast, together, of dark skin and light skin. Ebony & Ivory...

    Thanks, Gina.

  13. these are all gorgeous. i love george platt lynes' work.you are exactly the sort if person i would love to sit down and chat to for hours, as i am a 'doubting thomas' about most things....human suffering affects me terribly, and i hate bigots, snobs and pseudo intellectuals. so i am doubly honoured at receiving an award from you for my art. i think you would like my new pastel collection, they all 'scream' loudly.hugs lots of hugs.

  14. Soul: thank you for your kind words. I WILL return to London one day. Hopefully sooner, rather than later. When that happens, I will want to meet you for tea or lunch. I think it would be fabulous!

    Hugs and all the love,
    Gina

  15. One thing that I like about these shots is that they are absent the body shame our culture teaches us.
