I would randomly take pictures of nothing in particular. How else could you record life as it happens?

Cindy, I really love your photostream. The way you share everyday life and simple things is just amazing! Sometimes I need your photographs as much as I need summer. Thank you for each and every of your shots, thank you for giving joy. Stay sunny!

To be honest, being introduced to Cindy's photography was what pushed me to pick up a camera. I loved her work and wanted to create some of it myself.

To be honest, being introduced to Cindy's photography was what pushed me to pick up a camera. I loved her work and wanted to create some of it myself. (She's also the reason I got a flickr in the first place!!) I'm continually impressed and entertained each day visiting her stream. Her photos vary from adorable to dramatic, soft to vibrant but always keeping that simple, elegant style. She captures the everyday moments with breathtaking focus and beauty. Simply put: Cindy is supercalifragilisticexpialidocious. Look for yourself, you will be amazed!

I wish she'd tell me her secrets ;-P but until then all i know is that she's full of life, and i think that is what makes her one of the most vivacious and beautiful women i know and her energy shines through in her photography. One of my very first contacts i'd made on flickr and and still remains the biggest inspiration to date. It's true, if i had just a couple of minutes to browse through contacts' photos, i make sure to visit Cindy's stream. She's one of those people i'd love to hate but can't ;-) Muah !

If I just have 3 minutes to get loaded up on inspirations from Flickr friends, Cindy's stream is the FIRST I pop in. Need I say more? Love love love your work, Cindy! Your style has evolved so much over the years. A bokeh-licious stream always always! :)

To put it simply, Cindy gives a very unique life to her photos. Some of them even give off that perfect life type look, where it could only be so perfect in a dream. y'know with the soft focusing and incredible lighting. yes that kind.

I am in awe of the range of photography Cindy masters and captures so beautifully and creatively. She is a true inspiration!

February 11, 2009

I could spend hours viewing Cindy's photos. Since the very first page through all of them and never get tired. I discovered her awesome photography a year ago and since then there hasn't been a day I haven't come to check on her new updates. You should do the same, she's an inspiration. :) Thank you very much, Cindy!

The breadth and depth of Cindy's work constantly amazes me. She can take an everyday scene and turn it into something magical and poignant. She has a great sense of humour and is a never ending source of inspiration. One of my most favourite Flickr streams to sit and browse.

When I first started hanging out in flickrland, I would come across Cindy's pics everywhere, turning me into a follower of her daily uploads. She is a true flickr star, and has been a huge inspiration to many, like myself. She captures life and light in a unique way.

"I want to be like Cindy when I grow up." SRSLY! I was checking out this photo sharing site called Flickr in October 2006. I saw Cindy's photo on Explore for the first time that day. So, I decided I want to be like her (not LIKE her, I mean the woman makes magic with a Polaroid). I wanted to process like her. I wanted to dissect her work and learn how she does her magic...needless to say I fail miserably. Anyways, the point of this rant is: I owe it to this lady for the Flickr addiction. Thanks gurl! I will be telling my grand-kids this.

The one and only downside is that you'll likely become jealous of her equipment. ;) I could go on and on, but for all intents and purposes, just read everyone else's testimonials and more importantly take a look at every one of the 3700 and counting photos on her stream.

Cindy is one of the most talented and prolific people on Flickr. She is also warm and kind, one of those people everyone else is drawn to. Not a week goes by that I do not check out her stream to see what beautiful images she has created. It's people like her who make Flickr a great place to be!

Seeing the world through her eyes, seeing the love of her daughter through her lens...truly inspiring. Thank you for sharing with the world! I love how you see things. :)

Cindy is an incredible photographer, and the first photographer whose work I completely fell in love with on Flickr. The first time we met, she did not even have to twist my arm to get me to let her take photos of me licking a cupcake! Cindy is also an incredibly nice, funny, and FUN person, and that translates very well to how she relates to you when she's taking your photo.

What can I say about Cindy that hasn't already been said? She is full of talent. Her photography is just downright amazing. She is the master of bokeh and the queen of self portraits. As far as her elegant style and simplicity go...she is untouchable. A true gem in the Flickr community. Enough about her work though, as a person she is awesome. One of my favorite people on Flickr (and in general) to shoot the sh*t with. She is funny, charming, and just an all around great person. I'm proud to call her a friend. Srsly.

Cindy was sitting in front of me on the bus to Nashville. I was going to pursue my dream of playing in a speed country band, and she was going to visit a botanical garden. Instead of being angry after sneezing on the back of her head, she offered up some personal photos of a trip she took to Senegal, which showed not only a personal touch, but also the interaction of the locals with their environment. We lost touch after that but reconnected after I saw a photo of hers she posted of a latte or espresso or something. Cindy is good people.

I have been putting off writing a testimonial for Cindy; simply because I have not found the perfect words to say. Her work to me is an inspiration and luckily one of the first streams I came across when I joined Flickr. It is such a joy to view a photostream which is simply an honest, beautiful insight of a life being lived to the max. Thank you for sharing your eyes and journey with me and so many other fans, Cindy. You have helped me be more confident with my own work and I have learnt so much from you :)

How have I not written you a testimonial? Cindy Rocks. I love Cindy. That's all I got.

Cindy makes flowers blush and people bloom for the simple fact that she is a flower and a person herself. In all honesty, her pictures bring me joy.

I never leave Cindy's stream without finding inspiration. I always find something in her pictures... the light, the PP, the moment, the love . . . something that I put away in my mind to aspire to try, to emulate. I am still new to this and still have so much to learn, but it is through flickr and streams like Cindy's that I have found my knowledge, moreso then any book could ever offer. So thank you Cindy, I am a better photographer for finding you and your stream :) marie

She has the best eye for composition and beautiful moments. She processes her images wonderfully, leaves them so very natural. She makes me want to spend a million euro for lenses. She is beautiful. She has the most amazing model ever. She creates the best bokeh I've ever seen. She takes the most natualistic photos you will ever see in your life. She is the best photographer that I know about. She is gorgeous. Cindy, thank you so veryvery much for sharing your work. If possible, I'd buy a print of every shot that you took and hang it up in my house. You are SO inspiring.
