Галя и Ваня!
Большой Вам привет!
Галя, мы с Ириной пытаемся с вами связаться по скайпу, поболтать о том - о сём, но всё как-то безуспешно. Наверно, из-за разницы во времени. :)
Сегодня решил поискать по твоему нику ещё разок (вдруг что-то изменилось), но поиск дал однозначное соответствие тому, что сидит у меня. А в свойствах оказалась ссылка на твой сайт - вот и пишу.
Наши адреса на Яндексе не изменились.
Всех вам благ и здоровья, в особенности, малышам!

I got published in Photographer's Forum's "Best of Photography Annual 2007". Just one pic, but still a nice way to start the year!! Maybe there will be more!!

Hi Galina,
Thank You for your kind comment on my gallery. I really enjoyed your pictures, especially b&w and flowers.
Stephen Hall04-Sep-2006 04:40
Thank you Galina!!

I spent the day on Mt. Evans yesterday. There is a herd of Mountain Goats that graze on the top of the mountain. They are very tolerate of us wildlife "Paparazzi". I got lucky with my position to the goat and her lamb. If you are ever in Denver take a day trip to Mt.Evans. It is only about 60 miles out of Denver. You can drive all the way to the top (14,260 ft). Incredible views and lots of wildlife to photograph.

Roe..29-Aug-2006 14:13
Galina, I'm trilled that Al mentioned your work..I've fallen upon a talented artist..
I've added you to my list of favorites so I can check back often..

Just a quick hello and wishing you all the very best from Cape Town

arminb22-May-2006 20:54
'It is only with heart that one can see rightly, what is essential is invisible to the eye' - agreed, but you are a master in at least trying to show what is essential in your photos! At least trying, if not more!!!
all the best,
Stephen Hall08-May-2006 23:47
Galina thank you for your kind words. I love to photograph flowers. The last few weeks there have been many opportunities to capture castus flower images. Such radiant and rich color to these flowers. I'll be posting more soon.
Chester 04-May-2006 16:00
Galina: The visual images you have "captured" with a camera are both beautiful and powerful! I especially appreciate and enjoy your choice of selection for images depicting Texas (my home)! They are the most beautiful pictures of bluebonnets I've ever seen!I am in awe of your artistic ability! THANK YOU for sharing!
Sheena Xin Liu15-Mar-2006 03:49

Guest 30-Nov-2005 19:48
Galina, thank you for the really encouraging and kind comments about my galleries. I was looking through your body of work and I am awestruck. You have a very creative eye and the images that you have captured are simply astounding! I particularly enjoyed your Themes with a Variation series! Your work on the Alphabet theme is equally wonderful.
I have bookmarked your galleries and will definitely be back for more!
Guest 30-Nov-2005 07:03
меня просто вдохновил твой алфавит - великолепно, правда, как вернусь из Багдада (сама понимаешь тут нечего фотографировать - не очень то разрешают) домой тоже начну делать алфавит - но наверное какой-нибудь какой ещё не пробовали сделать - грузинский например или курилицу :)
Sean Blumenhein29-Nov-2005 20:07

Thank you for the nice comments in my galleries, I look forward to visiting your site often. Thanks again.

Hi there!

Too funny, we live off Sam Bass as well, in the Woods subdivision. Visited your galleries before, but never realized we were neighbors. Right now we are vacationing in Europe, so our net access is kinda sporadic (or very slooooow). Should be back to posting on regular basis in a couple of weeks. Something that might interest you:

You have a wonderful collection of images, Galina! Keep on posting, and I will keep on coming back.

Phil Douglis11-Oct-2005 20:11
Your images are so rich in human values, Galina. You obviously care deeply for those you photograph. It shows in the faces and attitudes of those who stand before your lens. There is mutual respect and often love coming through. You are extremely talented, and it would be my great pleasure to help you nourish that talent.

All the best,
victor valle11-Oct-2005 01:13

Hello Garina:
Thank you for you comments. I enjoyed with your pictures, specially flowers and childrem. Great b&w work, and a very nice color too. I understand that people want to pose for you: you take take the very best of them with the eyes of the heart. At the end, camera is only a tool of transformation of your feelings.
Best regards,
José Maria
Mindy McNaugher13-Apr-2005 03:21

Thank you for your comments on my photographs! Coming from someone who has such an incredible eye for capturing such emotion, particularly thinking of your images of children and the connection and interaction between people, your comments mean a lot. Your work is absolutely stunning! Look forward to seeing more in the future!

Sophia Gilmson 04-Mar-2005 06:05

More and more often I find myself visiting your galleries, quite randomly, although I have my favorites (all the children images, colors that you cannot avoid, Fedya became my friend, and many others). Your photography (and the titles!)truly is an art. It speaks to me differently every time I look at the familiar pictures, and that is how I look at the paintings in the museums.

I wish you all the success and hope to see many of your new works!
Natasha Blok 02-Mar-2005 19:15
Dear Galina!

Thank you for your wonderful photoworks! I have got your name from Sophia Gilmson. Pictures of her are so perfect...
I really enjoyed looking at all your galleries... It was a discovery for me!

Thank you again,
Wishing you a lot of good pictures in the future and further success in the wonderful world of photography...

Guest 25-Jul-2004 04:14
Dear Galina,

I produce a bi-monthly magazine here in Hong Kong called The Alternative which contains written articles and photography by a variety of people. I am interested in possibly using one of your images, namely the one on your website entitled 'stopped moment' as I think it is a beautiful photograph. I finance this magazine myself and have a little advertising to reduce my costs. I then distribute this around bars and restaurants and arts centres in Hong Kong free of charge, I therefore make no profit from this, in fact it costs me money every time. I will not be able to pay you for this use of material but will certainly attribute this to your good self and mention your website also. I would be grateful if you could see your way clear to agreeing to my request, if for no other reason than the fact that I am a nice guy and asked permission first. I shall happily send you the current and some back issues of this magazine if you so desire. You may contact me at:

Many thanks.
