Dear Flickreenos:

 

If I see awards in your comment section, I will usually not leave a comment because I don't want to scroll through "awards" to get to a comment box.

 

I chose the name Hot Pink Flamingo bc all the variations of Pink Flamingo were taken when I went to set up this account. I chose the word "Hot" only to differentiate myself from other Pink Flamingo accounts. I don't see myself as "hot" so please don't think I am complimenting myself in any sensual way. "Hot" fits because I am drawn to hot pink color (well, technically Fuchsia) and I am a bit zany on here. A rare bird indeed! I figured a Hot Pink Flamingo certainly would be the clown of a Flickr Flamingo flock!

 

I started posting photos on the internet in 2006. Some of the folks following my postings today started following my postings many years ago. I am very grateful for their continued support over the years.

 

This is my 2nd Flickr account. The first one is alive and well. The profile for my first account is here: www.flickr.com/people/the_orchid_lady/ The testimonials (8 of them) apply to this account as well. If there was a way to transfer the testimonials over to this account, I would do it!

 

If a person has questions and expects me to answer them without leaving enough comments to show that they care about the time it takes me to maintain this site and post photos, their questions will go unanswered.

 

Comments on photos are important to me. When I post a photo, I am starting a conversation. A NICE comment from you under the photo is you participating in the conversation if you feel the conversation topic is interesting. My photostream is an audience participation conversation. :) I view a comment as applause for posting a photo. Comment dumps are always welcome! :D Without a nice comment from you under it, I have to assume you do not like a photo, which is fine and expected from time to time.

 

If you have been given access to a lot of photos, the only way I know that you enjoy the photos is when you comment under a lot of them. I always comment on photos that I like, and those who have been my longtime Flickr "Friends" have shown the same appreciation for what I post. By the way....... If you are commenting under 70% of what I've been posting and others are commenting on 100% (or close to that), your access to that section might be removed because apparently you don't care for 30% of what I am posting. In having that policy, please understand I am being FAIR to myself and others - after all, I post images to get a reaction and viewers who react to significantly more postings should get more images to view. That is fair to me and them - a quid pro quo arrangement. By the way, no one needs to comment "cleverly". Many of my viewers do, but commenting is not a competition around here. One word comments are perfectly fine in my book, as well as comments which are not even words. Examples are : lol. !, :D. :), etc.

 

Like most others around here, comments on my photos are how I get to know people. Commenting is how relationships begin and end around here for me. Others do it differently. So be it.

 

I comment on almost all photos that I favorite, but after commenting on about 30 photos on certain favorite Flickr accounts and getting no response of any type from the account owner, I feel like they don't care whether I comment or not. In cases like that, I just fave photos on those accounts without commenting anymore.

 

People can fave my photos but it doesn't register with me as a comment does. A "fave" to me is the same as if a person ignored the photo.

 

Do not take our photos and post them elsewhere for your own purposes. This is a violation of copyright law. The victim is us. The more people steal photos, the less photos you will find on the internet due to people wanting to protect their rights. If you wish to use a photo we took, please contact me through Flickrmail and I will come to a decision as to whether I'd like it to be used elsewhere or not. I am very reasonable. Thank you.

 

People who are easy to get along with have an easy time getting along with me. I treat everyone well, and when they treat me well in return, I treat them extra well.

I have enjoyed her pictures for a number of years now. I am always nicely surprised with each photo - her creativity never ceases to amaze me. What I like most is that she does not try to out-do the prior picture, but takes each photo opportunity to let her beautiful personality become the picture - and shares that with us. I am always happy to comment on the pictures and offer advice, not that advice is needed but because she is very receptive to feedback so she can improve her ability to create pleasing and fun pictures to share with others. Thank you for sharing your creativity and your beautiful personality!

HPF and I met on another social media site. My curiosity was immediately piqued. I commented on her excellent posts and even joined the site due her postings. Over time and many comments we became and remain good friends. Well as good a friend as you can be electronically. I think she is and her family are special and will always hold her friendship close to my heart! There once was a man with a rhyme, He could come up with one almost any time. But the HPF's and Orchid Lady's pose Definitely brought life to his prose And filled his lines with life sublime!!!

Mrs. Flamingo is a great friend and I have been an admirer of her fantastic work since 2006! Both she and her photos are genuine works of art. Her photos nearly always have a story (that she generally shares) that is truly interesting. I'm sincerely thankful that she takes the time to put so much thought and effort into her photos and that she's willing to share her life with her friends. She is a wonderful person who I'm glad I've had the opportunity to get to know and I'm very proud to call my friend!

Hot Pink Flamingo is an awesome friend. She is full of surprises and mystery. A very artistic woman, and has an eye on details. A friend who is very articulate, willing to share peculiar circumstance of her posted pictures. She always responds to mails and take note of comments and willing to elaborate to shed light on some matters arising from such. Our friendship with HPF is the perfect example of what we expect from Flickr Friends and Family. Mutual respect, open communication and willingness to explore. A true Friend indeed.

I have had the incredible honor of knowing Michelle for over two years now. My time with her started strictly online getting to know her, and evolved into hours (yes, HOURS) long phone conversations. I have been blessed to be able to spend A LOT of time with her in person; in various places, often for many days at a time. If you ever wondered if she looks like her photos, no, the photos do not do her justice; she is gorgeous! And I can say without a doubt she is absolutely a uniquely special lady. She puts so much time, effort and thought into her photos and all she asks is if you like the photos, leave a comment. You can leave a single word, emoticon or few words that give her the feedback on her efforts. So, take a few minutes to read her profile, enjoy her photos and leave her a comment. Besides her obvious attractiveness, creativity and sense of humor, she is an honest and genuinely kind and big hearted person. It is those special traits that make her beautiful from the inside out.

I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Michelle for over six years first finding her at another picture site that started with an F and will remain nameless. Best of all I had the treat of actually meeting her and her lucky husband! Knowing her goes beyond the pictures filled with her quirky sense of humor and her alluring sexiness, she has become a good friend who has a kind heart and of course an awesome derrière.

HPF is a special lady, funny passionate and honest, M may wear her heart on her sleeve but has been a great friend to know. Over 5 years we have had some ups and downs but we always forgive, kiss and make up. Life is too short to be angry and M always puts a smile on my face. Pasty xxxxxxx

Michelle, no matter what identity she assumes, is a lovely lady. Not just in the physical sense (although she definitely is), but deep down lovely as well. Her photos are never a random careless posting, but each one carefully selected after what has to be a very long (and needlessly self critical) deliberation. I have followed her for years and always look forward to not just new pictures, but the stories that go with them, the peeks behind the curtain to a lovely creative process. Glad not just to say she is a contact, but a friend.
