"A good photograph is knowing where to stand." ~ Ansel Adams

 

The below is a running list of stuff I'm proud of and listing here so I don't forget they happened. You never know, one day while grocery shopping a pallet of creamed corn may fall atop my head, wiping my memory clean. I don't even like creamed corn. If that happens, I hope I will at least remember I have this Flickr account:

I meant Janine on Flickr a little over three years ago. Janine's photography has always spoke to me. I love how Janine titles her photos and the words that go along with each one. Janine is a wordsmith and her stories always bring a smile to my face. You can always tell that Janine pours her heart into each photo that she uploads (yes, even the banana photos). You are an inspiration to me! Thank you Janine, the best is yet to come!

Janine has a wonderful sense of humor. I hope this is true because if it was not I would have been hunted down and dismembered by now. She loves Starbucks for some unknown reason known only to her taste buds and her pocket book. Personally my taste for coffee does not run over $1.60.

Janine I'm so happy to have found you in Flickr. Your pictures take my comments to a funny new level and I thank you for posting so many wonderful food shots... Lub em....

Janine has a brilliant eye for color and composition, is fearless about experimenting and saying whatever she feels like saying (stuff that usually CRACKS ME UP), and takes some of the most beautiful flower shots on Flickr--she says flowers speak to her, and she helps them speak to us. You also gotta love a woman who is constantly either in the bathtub or hanging out at Starbucks, all while lugging around a big hunk of bacon. You are awesomeness, my friend--MUAH!
