"Sometimes I enjoy just photographing the surface because I think it can be as revealing as going to the heart of the matter". - Annie Leibovitz

 

(many thanks for the quote, sally, basilly !!!!)

  

"The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera."

Dorothea Lange (1895–1979), U.S. photographer. Quoted in Los Angeles Times

(August 13, 1978).

  

"I really believe there are things nobody would see if I didn't photograph them ."

Diane Arbus

  

"Taking pictures is savoring life intensely, every hundredth of a second."

~Marc Riboud~

  

“To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place…I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.”

~Elliott Erwitt~

  

"It is part of the photographer's job to see more intensely than most people do. He must have and keep in him something of the receptiveness of the child who looks at the world for the first time or of the traveler who enters a strange country."

~Bill Brandt~

Me encanta la fotografía de Iris; visitar su stream es redescubrir el arte en la naturaleza, sus imagenes son evocadoras, llenas de magia y un verdadero placer para los sentidos.

Have you ever wondered what flickr would be like without [insert name here]? Iris is the name I often place within those brackets. I think that without her, flickr would be a less friendly, less beautiful place. Her shots are an inspiration to all who exult in floral photography, and her friendship and encouragement keep us coming back. This leads me to wonder what the world would be like without her, not just flickr. Well, I think all the flowers and colors and sheer beauty on this little planet would be worth a lot less!

I have known Iris for our common love in art found in water droplets. As time went by, I have discovered the true Iris, a wonderful and sincere friend. Her talent in photography always leaves me breathless no matter how simple the subject may be. She manages to capture the very essence of the subject by creating a perfect focus of the very heart and enhanced with the incredible bokeh. Her love for nature is so evident in her stream and she perfectly captures them and present them before our eyes. Combined with her talent and friendship, Iris became very dear to me. I am very lucky to have met her. Thank you so much for your friendship Iris!!

What a treasure she is...Her interpretation of flowers in the tiny macro world are a fantasy. All of her flowers project the sweetness of her personality. I am proud to call her my good friend.

I have the honour to write the first testimonial for Iris... She hasn't been here in flickr for long but in this time she turned out to be a most wonderful and caring friend! Her comments are always wonderful intense... I feel she really gets in touch with my photographs, my way of looking at the world (mostly flowers...). And - as important - I love her way of photography! She has a wonderful ability for human portraits... they are just great. And with her way to capture the flowers and leaves on her path I really feel very close to her (we even share the same macro lens..). She has a wonderful way of balancing the colours and the light. Meeting Iris really has enriched my life!
