____________________________________________________

 

On flickr since 2006.

Amateur and self-taught photographer...forever. Not perfect at all, but I love what I do.

Travelling sometimes or in my own world, I love photographing nature while I silently admire it.

There is always something new to learn about it...and I never stop listening to it...

On the other hand urban life is filled with rich details, which use to catch my attention as well.

There are so many interesting man made and story telling characteristics in big cities, towns

and villages. Impossible to ignore them. Actually they are part of everyone´s lives...

Indoors, at home and everywhere...so many rich and interesting subjects...I simply have to

picture them...

And people...beautiful charming people, friends, family members or strangers...

...sometimes humble, sometimes sophisticated...each one in a very particular way, writing

the big story of humanity...

I wish they (we) would do it always side by side...

Thank you for being here. Thank you for your time.

 

Petra

Take a look at *Petra's stream and feast your eyes. Petra got natural eye for composition or light. Seeing the details in photos that might otherwise be overlooked. How sophisticated cameras and editing software can get – talent will always be valuable because talent is the human touch. She takes every photo with her heart. I know her for more than 10 years now on Flickr and it's a pleasure to have her as a friend. She has got a great porfolio of albums. Pick out a few albums and enjoy her work, from abstract, people, nature and the joy of summer photos. Thank you for being my friend through all these years!

Dear Petra It's long overdue that I write a few words! You have a wonderful stream all seen through an artist's eye that gives each picture a special quality. Also there is often an apt quote or a little piece of family life to share with us which adds a special something that uplifts us. Thank you so much also for your kind comments and generous invites. As many have said I don't know how you find the time and forgive me when I'm short of time too. Everyone would gain so much by visiting Petra's stream and thank you for your friendship.

I'm not the best at putting words together but Petra deserves some from me now. Petra is a fantastic photographer but more importantly she is very kind and considerate. She is very busy with family (little Gui) too but always manages to get to your stream to leave positive and encouraging comments. That's saying a lot considering she manages over 40 groups. I can't even handle five! I thank you for your wonderful posts. I don't always get to all of your photos when life gets busy. I consider that my loss. Many blessings to you and your entire family.

Petra mi colpisce per la raffinata pittoricità e la calda visione con cui sa osservare i diversi volti del mondo circostante. La sua fotografia offre atmosfere intime e morbide, create attraverso il gioco seducente del chiaroscuro e dello sfocato. Il filtro usato da Petra è quello della semplicità mai banale, dell’originalità non ricercata, ma fresca e spontanea. Perciò il suo album è prezioso, capace di restituire, a chi l'osserva, emozioni sempre nuove e avvolgenti. Io amo la musica e la poesia. Quando sfoglio quest’album vi ritrovo proprio quel che amo.

Petra invites us into a special world in her photostream. It's a place that if filled with creativity, warmth, understanding and beauty. We see the world through her artist eyes, and we always come away feeling fulfilled and satisfied. She is a special person. Not only in the sharing of her wonderful photos, but in the way she encourages other photographers. She always makes you feel as if you are as talented as her, and that is a wonderful feeling because this woman has more talent in her little finger than most people have in their whole body. So, if I can feel even a little bit of that talent, then I'm doing good. Thank you Petra for being who you are...my special Brazilian friend.

If you're reading this, chances are you already know what I'm going to say, but Petra is so wonderful it can be repeated a million times. You've no doubt discovered the fantastic, superb, delightful photos that swim in Petra's photostream... You don't just enjoy beautiful, artistic, incredible pictures, but you are also given a glimpse into her thoughts, her life, her art, her joys, and her sorrows... Each shot is a story.... or a lovely bit of wisdom... or a piece of her soul.... Which brings me to the equally wonderful part of knowing Petra. If you've ever received a comment from her, you'll agree that her kind heart and radiant spirit touch you....even just a few sweet words from her will make your day.... I could say so much more, but I'll conclude by saying that Petra is one of the loveliest, most talented souls in the universe and I feel truly blessed to have met her through flickr. She never fails to brighten my heart with her warm Brazilian sunbeams--I am so happy to call her my dear friend.

Huh, it is not easy to write a short testimonial for my dear flickr friend Petra, a fantastic artist and photographer. One could write pages and still not to say a lot. I met Petra on flickr right 3 years ago and it was her paintings set that caught my first attention, her paintings are fantastic !!! Than I saw her wonderful photos and got seduced with such quality art. Petra has a special female sensibility that comes out from every single of her works. She is also a great friend, always supporting her contacts/flickr friends, always nice and kind and always present. Dear Petra thank you for all, it is my honor and pleasure to have you here as a precious friend . Keep with your amasing art and feel our days with joy to admire them. My respect and love to you always !

Petra is a marvellous artist and a most wonderful human being. Daring words to be said by someone who only recently had the pleasure and honour of meeting her in flickr. But one really doesn't need a thousand years to get to know a person. I marvelled at her recent creations and flickr, images that can only be created by someone with an artist''s soul. And then, to my surprise and sadness, when I looked at her profile I saw "After my first year in flickr"and then "After my second year". Surprise because I had seen and knew some of her works, but didn't know she had so many excellent images. Sadness because, candidly speaking, my first thought was "oh, I missed 2 years, can't really go back and invite all these wonderful creations to our new and small group". I wish I could. Now, for the second and most important part: a marvellous human being. I don't know how she does it, it is a mistery to me but, being busy travelling abroad, having time for her own artistic work, taking care of top groups in flickr, posting and renewing her own photostream and having a personal life of course, she still finds time to dedicate to less talented people in flicr, encouraging and making them happy, like me. It is beyond my understanding but proves once again that an eye for the beauty and a kind heart go hand by hand.

For a photographer to captivate the viewers with a stunning photo is one thing, to be able to reach the viewer's heart is another... Petra has mastered both arts. When I view Petra's work, I see a deeper meaning to what she posts. Her photos, together with her words become a unifying element that strikes me and the feeling lingers even after I have turned so many pages. Petra consistently produce visually and literally compelling works... that's how I see Petra as an artist, a genuine one. As a friend, nobody can ask for more. She is a true, supportive, sensitive and caring friend -- that's in and out of your photos. Petra, you have grown close to my heart. It is a privilege to have you as a friend. I am just one of the lucky souls you have showered with beauty and love. Thank you my dear!

So here it is, long overdue: So much good has already been written, that I want to be brief: Petra: integrity, compassion, insight, sensitivity of the soul and eye, kindness, community spirited, and positive vibration of a true artist on Flickr. Thank you so very much for all the profound good you bring to this international photosharing website. Flickr is an amazing phenomenon on the internet, and You, dear Petra, are certainly one of its most shining lights. Thank you for your engaging and generous presence.

PETRA … what can I say about her? Hmmm...a lot .... Petra has become a fabulous friend here on Flickr. She is a kind and generous woman, always encouraging and full of vibrant words that make me smile and laugh. Her comments are always encouraging and positive. Petra speaks what is on her mind or how an image makes her feel and that's what makes her a genuine person here on Flickr. Her words are a delight to read. As a photographer Petra is fabulous, pure works of art and class. A magnificent and brilliant artist, a composer with a camera! She creates small photographical pieces of art. Quality over quantity - simply adorable is her work I love her for being a warm-hearted, caring friend, who always comes up with heartfelt words of consolation when you need it. I love you Petra and I am ever so lucky you count me among your friends Love you my precious Petra Kiss and hug Your French Canadian friend Monique And now in French ….
