I hit a milestone a few years ago and retired early. I work part time a few days a week to keep myself occupied; I maintain a web site for a governmental agency and it is the most fascinating job I have ever had. The reason why I love it so much is that it allows me to be creative and I pretty much have the freedom to do what I want (mainly because no one else knows web design or html coding).

 

Flickr is an amazing place and I love taking photos, enhancing the heck out of them and posting in my photostream. I also love meeting new contacts and am in awe of the raw talent that I see over and over again here on Flickr. I consider most of my contacts to be friends--unseen except for an insight into their personalities by way of their photos. The family, pets, flowers, travel, etc. it is amazing to see that people are not so different in all places throughout the world.

 

I am a good contact and will actually look at your photos and make real comments--so, if you want to be Flickr friends, all I ask is that you visit and at least say "Hi" once in awhile. I'm not one to put up with a one-sided friendship (you posting, me posting, me commenting and you just posting).

Well, I think I've been here long enough to write one of these. When I first entered the Flickr world, I timidly asked around for help in finding out what this was all about, and how to learn the "ropes" so to speak. One of the people who jumped up and said "I'll help!" was Lynne. Throughout this past year, she has stuck by me and given me her valued comments and made me laugh on many occasions. Just look at this list. Can you believe it? I'm #42! Well, Lynne, all I can say is Thank you! For making this an enjoyable experience for me and getting me started down this fun and enlightening path. Without you being there at the start, I would not still be around today. I know you are stretched by your many contacts that you keep in touch with, but I do so look forward to seeing your comments and interesting pics. Lynne even got me to buy a cactus for my home here in New York State! It is still alive to my dismay and I look at it every day and remember it was Lynne who made it possible. Again, thanks for being here for me Lynne. You are what Flickr is all about, and I'm proud to call you my friend. Sincerely, Don :)

This testimonial is long overdue Lynne! Cannot find the right words to describe you my friend. You have touched my heart in so many ways, not only with the words that you leave in my stream but also your genuine and sincere concern. You have a big heart, that's how I see you. You embraced people with that unconditional love. You are very inspiration in so many ways, one of my wishes is to see you in person someday. As an artist, you are one of a kind, you use your art to communicate to people. You have a great sense of humor , very creative and always have something new to present to us. Thank you for that Angel's Wing necklace, I can never forget that gesture, and it lifted up my spirit when someone who I have not met in person, will go a second mile to buy that precious gift! I wish you all the good things in life my precious friend. I believe in the law of "sowing and reaping" , if we sow kindness we will reap kindness........ Emma

If I hit my head with my heaviest lens it still would not be enough punishment for having committed this huge, humongous, enormous, gigantic, gargantuan, King Kong-ish *oversight*: I still have not written a testimonial for my flickr friend *Lynne all this time??? C'mon!!! *Lynne? She whom I've exchanged many a professional (and personal) emails with, as well as traded countless photography and Photoshop tips with? So here goes: flickr is a cruel, ruthless, insensitive universe that draws the unknowing with promises of "contacts" and "comments" to better improve their photography with. But once in, "pity the fool" (to quote Mr. T) who expects to keep the folks in his/her contact list and to keep seeing their comments in every upload. Just never happens. Nope. Not in this cruel, ruthless, insensitive universe. Except when you find *true* contacts like *Lynne (and a few others I can count on the fingers of both hands) who visit your stream regularly (except when inundated with office workload or jousting with AZholes...hehe!). The upside to having regular contacts is that you keep track of their evolution as photographers and artists, too, and use this to mirror your very own progress. I've seen *Lynne's work metamorph over the months that I've known her. And there were (are) many a times when I wonder just where she draws the energy to shoot, dabble in Photoshop and still battle the slings and arrow of mundane work (hah!). I'm blessed to have *Lynne as a contact and as a friend and confidante! .

Lynne, You are my very first testimonial. I haven't been on Flickr as long as others but YOU are by far one HECK of a lady. I've been admiring your photography since day-1 and you keep blowing me away with your love of art / your creativity / your sense of humor and your love of life. It shows through your work and in your words. You have many gifts but the one that touches me the most is the way you INSPIRE others to create an your sense of humor. When we communicate you make me feel like I've known you all my life. You have a way of bringing people to you and when we start talking we don't want to leave. Your art is so diversified - From being romantic, serious, fun, crazy, touching, etc.. You've touched all of my emotions and I love you for that. I'm honored you consider me a friend and fellow artist. God bless you forever. Hugs, Dottie

Lynne is one of a kind and a very special friend to me. She's so kind and greets me with an email every day just to ask how my day has been, talk about a big heart, YES, that's Lynne and I'm so very lucky and proud to have Lynne as my friend. : ) Lynne's personality is so hot rockin fun, that she makes me laugh and giggle just like a teenager. (Oh wait I am a teenager). Lynne is admired and respected on Flickr that she has so many dedicated contacts that worship and admire her friendship and her photos! But Lynne, YOU also touch my heart in so many ways! You lift me up on my off days, send me jokes and pictures to brighten my days and you take the time to share your day with me, and I thank you! Lynne's middle name is "Amazing Kindness" and in my book she can do no wrong. I believe we will forever be the best of friends, because we have a wonderful bond that will never break. Lynne takes incredibly amazing photos. She's very creative and artistic. She also enjoys playing around with Photo shop and can turn a faded photo into a colorful magical piece of art. I always look forward to her new uploads as you never know what to expect but you do know it will excel in it's finest. Lynne's photo stream is and I quote "Life Is Like A Box Of Chocolates. You Never Know What You're Gonna Get", unquote. She's so unique, smart, beautiful, kind hearted and such an amazing woman. I truly believe Lynne has a turbo computer she rides around on while commenting on her contacts photos like clockwork, she never misses a photo. She's amazing and an absolute asset to the Flickr Community. Lynne, girlfriend I appreciate everything you do for me, you are the brightest diamond, my best friend! If you haven't checked out Lynne's photos, what are you waiting for? Please do, they rock and roll! I luv ya girlfriend and I'm proud to be your friend. Keep on rockin B-boy style. ~Dance to the music of your dreams and the steps will bring you joy.~ Skyler
