"All artists are exhibitionists; but photographers are also voyeurs."

 

Eccentric? Maybe - I have a Ph.D in Psychology, but work in a Financial Institution. Psychology is something we all use every day of our lives, but not something I want to spend my career doing - make sense?

 

Photography is my passion - it's MY therapy. I've always loved it, but got more involved while recovering from surgery. Now I can't imagine a day without taking at least one photograph.

 

I love Flickr and it has introduced me to a lot of really nice people all over the world. I love that we all come together for a common goal - to appreciate art in whatever form it takes.

And please - this is a pet peeve - if you post photos in your comments on my photos, please make sure they are small size. I love seeing your photos, just not if they take up the whole page. Thanks. :)

 

On a side note, unfortunately there are those on flickr that steal photos. Because of this if you begin making my photos favorites, and do not have any photos to display or anything in your profile, I will block you.

I love the way Pook views the world through her lens. She sees beauty everywhere. When you look beyond the images and to the woman, you will find honesty and strength there. She's funny and smart and talented and I am so thankful to Flickr and Plurk for introducing me to her. I feel really lucky to know her. xx

She has amazing skills and I would die to be as amazing as her when I get around her age which is what, 20 years or something?. She leaves the best comments and brings me on to new and better ideas and things among those lines.Can I say anymore? Well other than she's funny, nice and just an awesome person all around? I dont think there is much more to a person that I like. I thank her for everything she has done for me. She's there for me and I'm there for her. Always and forev yo! I love you :D MWAH! ♥

Pook is a ray of sunshine to me, a flickr friend I am so grateful to have found. She has a fierce and beautiful spirit, and a fall-down-laughing sense of humour. Her photos reflect her positive attitude; we like to inspire one another, I think. Blue eyes and sunny skies, that's my pal Pook.

Pook always gives me friendly photography advice and is a great person to both me and my wife. She loves cats and conures so that automatically promotes her to ultimate coolness.

Even though Pook and I have only known each other for a short while, I can honestly say that I feel like we've been friends forever. We have so much in common it's scary...kind of like we are living on the same wavelength! She has encouraged my creativity, in more ways than just photography. She's inspired me to challenge my abilities, on and off of Flickr. Pook has an incredible talent for photography along with an artistic eye that shows in all of her photos. She is a wonderfully talented singer and writer as well, and I look forward to every new creation that she shares with me!! And I can't write this without giving her a BIG thank you for all the kind, thoughtful comments she leaves on my photos every single day. Your sweet words and encouragement mean the world to me, sweetie! Love you! XOXOXOXOXO
