Reflections in glass...



Beach scene reflected in a superb untitled work by Toshio Iezumi (Japan).. created by 'laminating sheets of glass into a bloc and carving and polishing it with stone carving tools'. A wonderful piece of ever changing sculpture depending from where you view it. I'm hoping to return to Cottesloe and take a few 'sun going down' shots, imagine this beauty bathed in warm orange/reds oh la! Looking back over my photos there does seem to be a recurring feature.. bronzed shirtless men, unintentional believe me :) Hope you have a happy weekend, take care and stay safe...

  23. In our art museum, will be an exhibition of new acquisitions. Will put on the blog after my souvenirs of Egypte. Travel made in1983. What give the impact to show these, is a window I made with Egyptians as merchandise supports. So if you go *along the Nil * you will see number of ma shops windows ideas. See you. I can see American, always the same everyday going on it. She must, maybe, pick up ideas, that please me. Maybe not. .

  31. You have outdone yourself with photography over the last few days. These beach scenes are amazing. Today's glass sculpture echoes the colors of the ocean, only vertically!
