Your pictures, Bev, I find unique. One does not know is it "only" a picture or photo, or already a work of art. Probably it is both.

It is said that a photo is worth a thousand words, but your words are worth a thousand photos. Great poetry, wonderful shots!

Bev, it is a joy to visit your gallery and explore your wonderful images. It is so easy to be inspired by them. Thanks for posting such a great photo stream. Keep on posting beautiful images.

December 28, 2020

Bev, you have a very varied stream and different topics. From ordinary macro to very idiosyncratic art and mysterious images combined with beautiful texts and poems. It is always interesting to see a new upload of you. You have a real passion for photography.

Bev is one of my dearest friends on flickr...and come to think of it, one of my dearest friends in life. Here is a woman who not only befriends and cares for all the birds, bugs, and other critters she encounters in her daily life, but she also cares for so many of us on flickr in the much the same way.

Bev is one of my dearest friends on flickr...and come to think of it, one of my dearest friends in life. Here is a woman who not only befriends and cares for all the birds, bugs, and other critters she encounters in her daily life, but she also cares for so many of us on flickr in the much the same way. A seemingly tireless presence, she is always in motion, tending to her groups and keeping up with friends....mentoring, listening, laughing.... making everyone feel as though they are under her care. A bit like a mother wren caring for her fledglings. When I was a flickr neophyte (just last year) she tucked me under her wing and taught me how to fly in this new environment. Bev also provides the same tender and watchful care to the many groups that she has founded and continues to administer...places where flickr friends can come to meet and to chat, and on some days, even to party in the photostream. Many of us are observers in life, content to sit back and enjoy the show. Not Bev. She creates the show, and then steps right on stage and enjoys it with the rest of us. An extraordinary photographer, a brilliant watercolor artist, an insightful poet, and a compassionate spirit, it is an honor to be counted as one of her friends.

Bev has found me, and introduced me in its illustrious groups of artists. It was like a new world would open up for me. Suddenly I saw more of the artist's world and it expanded my horizons.

Bev has found me, and introduced me in its illustrious groups of artists. It was like a new world would open up for me. Suddenly I saw more of the artist's world and it expanded my horizons. I could see what she saw, and I could see what she likes. A true artist as there are very rare. I felt like Columbus discovering new worlds. Another aspect of Bev is her gentleness and interest in and appreciation for the work of others. She is a generous commenter and her spirit shines so bright. I love her comments and I miss them when they are not there. She shares her excellent work here in Flickr and is completely unselfish in her relations with others. Her stream is a magical and creative work of art. An inspiration for everyone! She has the ability to create beauty, enchantment, magic, playfulness or wonderment in every photo. It reaches together with her statements down to your soul. Each photo shows the diversity of her, whom I am so honoured to call a contact. I thank you very much Bev ;-)

Just learned about testemonials... Bev has a lot of interesting photographic styles which I love. And she has a lot of friendly groups. I am happy to be a member in your Flickr world.

In ogni scatto di BEV si scopre qualcosa di nuovo, qualcosa di inaspettato, spesso ella é alla ricerca di un particolare che ai più sfugge ma che riesce ad immortalare con maestria...(detto tra noi ha un colpo d'occhio eccezionale).

In ogni scatto di BEV si scopre qualcosa di nuovo, qualcosa di inaspettato, spesso ella é alla ricerca di un particolare che ai più sfugge ma che riesce ad immortalare con maestria...(detto tra noi ha un colpo d'occhio eccezionale). In tutti i suoi scatti ho notato una particolare cura delle inquadrature, i colori saturi e brillanti al punto giusto e dagli sfuocati meravigliosi. La sua sensibilità si nota in ogni suo clik ..anche quando fotografa le persone. Nel mese di Maggio 2012 c'è stato il RNF a Livorno al quale ho partecipato assieme a molti altri e l'ho conosciuta di persona assieme a LES. Inutile dire che.....li ho trovati molto simpatici entrambi anche se ci "parlavamo" con gli sguardi e con i gesti. La considero una brava fotografa….uno dei migliori su flickr ....e mi è piaciuta particolarmentela........per la sua sensibilità ..e la dovizia dei particolari che individua con facilità. Visionare i suoi set…sarà sempre un immenso piacere……… Ciao cara BEV, ti mando un grande abbraccio.. in amicizia adriana

Non è facile scrivere di arte, talento, dolcezza, poesia. Questi sono alcuni degli ingredienti principali che trovo nelle foto di Bev. Foto di una bellezza molto dolce che irradiano di luce propria. Sono orgoglioso di essere suo amico e di partecipare ai suoi gruppi. Grazie Bev un caro saluto Alfonso.

Oltre ad essere un eccellente fotografa è sicuramente una donna di grande sensibilità, molto creativa e capace di trasmettere forti emozioni! Ho notato che ha la capacità di cogliere moltissime sfumature invisibili a molti. I suoi fiori sono gradevolissimi, i paesaggi sono incantevoli e molto interessanti ho trovato gli acquerelli. Ritengo che le sue splendide foto possono essere fonte di ispirazione e di meditazione! Sono contento di essere tra i suoi contatti!

She is a special person. Not only in the sharing of her wonderful photos, but in the way she encourages other photographers and members of her groups. Her photostream is a place filled with creativity, warmth, understanding and beauty Her talent is multifaceted: photography,painting…. You don't just enjoy her beautiful, artistic, incredible pictures, but you are also given a glimpse into her thoughts, her life, her art, her ups, her downs...

Tutti gli individui sono unici ed irripetibili. Se avete qualche dubbio prendete come esempio Bev. La nostra amica non ha età, fluttua sul tempo con l'eleganza di un cigno. Racchiude in sé l'allegria di un fanciullo, la consapevolezza di un adulto e la saggezza di una persona matura. La sua energia è trascinante e nonostante sia una persona di provata serietà riesce sempre a trovare il modo di ridere e scherzare con gli amici. E' una signora nel vero senso della parola, ha sempre un pensiero gentile ed una parola cortese per tutti noi. Come fotografa Bev è un vero portento. Lei e la sua Ricoh sono una coppia con pochi uguali. Mentre molti (me compreso) si spaccano la schiena con zaini giganteschi, lei si porta lo stretto necessario: una macchina e tanta creatività. Non ha bisogno di stare ore ed ore a lavorare con complicati programmi di fotoritocco, perchè riesce sempre ad ottenere ciò che vuole con semplicità ed efficacia. E' una vera artista, e lo dimostrano anche i suoi straordinari dipinti. Se dovessi rivolgermi a lei usando una sola parola saprei già cosa dirle: grazie! 'All individuals are unique and unrepeatable. If you have any doubt, take as an example Bev. Our friend has no age, fluctuates over time with the elegance of a swan. Embodies the joy of a child, an adult awareness and the wisdom of a mature person. Her energy is captivating, and despite being a person of proven reliability can always find a way to laugh and joke with friends. It 'a lady in the truest sense of the word, always has a kind thought and a kind word for all of us. As a photographer Bev is a true wonder. She and her Ricoh are a couple with few equals. While many (including me) will break the back with huge bags, she brings the bare necessities: a car and lots of creativity. Does not need to spend hours and hours working with complex photo editing software, why can not always get what they want with ease and efficiency. It 'a real artist, and also demonstrate his extraordinary paintings. If I had to turn to using a word she already know what to say: thank you! '

Her photos and paintings in her stream will attest to her great talent more that anything I could say about it. Interacting with Bev has been a joy. Her cheerful, insightful and supportive commentary on the work of others is most appreciated. Her tireless support, moderation and administration of many FLICKR groups is just another indication of her generous spirit and dedication to art and beauty. Bev always makes time to be a friend. Her messages are always, sincere, loving and insightful. I am honored to know here and to have shared joys and difficulties with her over the past year. Bev has enriched my life an I am sure that of many, many others. If you haven't already, peruse her exquisite work on FLICKR and make her a contact. Join the legion of FLICKr members who love the oOo lady.

"I have my own name for Bev. Several years ago, Bev came across some of my photos on Flickr, I reckon ones of my cat. What better way to form a friendship then over the magnificent feline? An animal we both love and cherish equally. Her friendship came at a time when I needed it most, when a lot of my friends had been mean to me about positive choices I was making in my life. Her sense of humor is unlike any other. As our friendship started to grow, it became aware to me that we have met before. In this lifetime, no. She was an old old old friend from the past. How beautiful to reunite through photography! Now onto her photography...she has a great gift. She has a "photographer's eye". All of her pictures capture the beauty in life. I am particularly fond of her animal and flower pictures. I feel like I'm instantly at peace when I look at her pictures. I know she has many more things to show us here on Flickr. Oh, and to add to her list of talents, she is a brilliant water color artist." Bev is a great soul. Anyone that gets to know her in this lifetime is blessed. ~Kate
