Wildcardpoet’s name says it all. Bill’s photography is a reflection of the title and a quick glimpse of his profile will back that statement also. Just spend some time flicking through the images on this guy’s photostream and be prepared for a big journey into the world’s beautiful offerings that we sometimes look past in our day to day activity. Hard to say what I like most about this man’s work as the spectrum is so vast. Probably his enormous range of subject matter I guess. Let’s just say that I am privileged to be in his 10,000 or so contacts and I am always glad to get a big tick when he sees my work…. As trivial as it is. dash

Being one of the first people who I actually spoke with here of flickr other then just in commenting Bill has been an excellent contact and friend over the past past several years. I always enjoy his photos and he is always the most pleasant person to exchange words with here on flickr. He has been more then helpful in guiding me on my way when I started Hummingbird Photography group. I believe that without his help it would not have blossomed into the group that it is today. I know that he has been more than just another pic on flickr to many many people out there across the world and for just being the nice guy that he naturally is I say thank you. I hope all who read this if having not already done so will go now and have a look through his photos, you wont be disapointed.

I came across Bill during my early days on Flickr. He noticed me inviting images to one of his groups and asked me to join him as a Mod. I have worked with him since then and, although Bill doesn’t realize it, he has been responsible for most of my group knowledge. Everything I know about groups came from Bill. We have grown, and shared experiences, during our time together here on Flickr. He is a great friend, and I value his loyalty. I have always admired Bill’s photography, which has an artistic quality I can only dream to achieve. My work has improved, due to the inspiration I have gained from his work, and the other artist’s work Bill has introduced me to. For that reason I thank him enormously. Bill has been my teacher, my support, and most importantly become my most trusted, loyal friend. Get to know Bill, his photostream and his blog, and you too, will be glad you met him. …And finally if you ever have a problem with your group icons, give Bill a call!

No, I can't put this off. I am (as usual) scrambling to make an appointment, but this testimonial is so important, that it must take priority. I met Bill Cross through another Flickr member. All I knew about Bill was that he was friendly, and that he knew how to do codes. It was later that I learned just how terrific a human being this "wildcardpoet" truly is. Aside from his abilities as an amazing Flickr group originator and admin, an artist, a photographer, and a code builder, Bill is that rarity among human beings: a Giver, and a gracious one at that. I have called upon Bill now, on several occasions, to help me and other Flickr members, whom he has never met, to help us with emergencies. He has responded quickly and with great kindness. And, of course, with fantastic codes. And advice. I have had some very awful experiences on Flickr with other members, some that really crushed my soul. But because of my interaction with Bill, those soul-defeating encounters have been muted. Thank you, Bill. Thank you, from all of us. Sheree Zielke (smiles)

Without question, Bill Cross is the most important individual I've come across since joining Flickr. I note in all the previous testimonials the wonderful things that others have said about Bill. It's all true! Artist par excellence, friend to many in the most gracious way and professional in his manner. What really stood out for me was the insight he has in accomplishing things on the Flickr website and more specifically for the "Better Than Good" group. Once I had become a Moderator for the Group the communication grew and I learned so much from Bill. His ideas on developing the BTG group and strengthening the membership were brilliant. He worked tirelessly to make BTG one of the best high quality groups on Flickr. The images are wonderful and the structure is superb. His recently launched Blog, Flickr Walkabout is a thing of beauty. flickrwalkabout.b... Bill's abilities really come through when you arrive at his blog. There's something for everyone and it is constantly updated with the most wonderful images of all sorts. Congratulations Bill on a terrific effort in building your vision. So very proud to be your friend. Manas

He is a professional photographer and peple too. He always makes photos to everyone about the word. His work is always faultless because he always keeps an eye on the details. And it makes him to be pro man. That's why I honor him. I'm proud to be his friend!

Bill has a depth of imagery that spans just about all of the major (and some minor) areas of photography in a brilliant manner. You should study his stream. Oh, and he has a way with words. Thanks for being on flickr Bill. doug

You will never find another Bill--a man of many layers; you could never go through them all in a lifetime. He's a True Artist who expresses himself through his work, and a teacher who has taught me many things........with the patience of a saint :) Without him Flickr wouldn't have been as rewarding; nor would I have learned half of what I know. If you take the time to go through his stream, you will be amazed at the variety of styles. He's not afraid to show his sensitive side, which I think is wonderful. And is always looking for new ways to shock us with his gift. So If you're here, take the time to explore his site. You will get lost in his Images. And just when you think you've seen it all, he will prove you wrong. I have the utmost respect for him--a kinder person you won't find. I'm proud to call you a friend. Never change.................Kimba

Bill is someone I feel I've known all of my life.. but have only known a short time. He is very intelligent, incredibly insightful, and a true artist in very sense of the word. In addition to learning from the continually evolving nature of Bill's work, he has also introduced me to the work of several other great artists here on flickr, such as CharlieBrown8989 and Lars van de Goor, for which I am very grateful to have discovered. I am perpetually inspired by Bill's vision and the extraordinary aesthetic quality that is contained within every set of photos he introduces. I can only hope to someday be blessed with at least a fraction of the knowledge, intuition and inherent ability he has when holding a camera in his hands.. and am so grateful for having the opportunity to know him as a human being.

First, I'd like to say that I'm so glad to have met Bill here on Flickr. I imagine him to be a very kind and gentle soul- someone who makes a great neighbor or friend. His photography is so beautiful, and inspiring that you almost can't find the words to describe what he manages to accomplish with his great vision and talent. He also is a very kind, and helpful person who does whatever he can to help out anyone who asks. He has helped out several times when I needed it, and I told him that I wished I could return the favor, so I am trying to return by writing this. If you browse through his stream you won't be disappointed! In fact, the first time I found Bill's photostream I lost all track of time while I was looking at all of his great work!!

I love Bill's style and range. When it comes to photography he is a chameleon. He is an awesome purist, a divine artist, and one of the masters of black and white. You can never look at his work and say : "Bill did this", because his range is so strong and wide. I might also add, he has one of the coolest groups on Flickr, Better Than Good. Now, if you are new to his work... I invite you to look through it. You will come away with an expanded image file (mentally speaking), and the desire to your own thing. Many thanks to you Bill for always keeping me inspired !

You can read out every emotion and feelings he had on the moment he took the photo, still never the same, there is something over there that makes his every single work unique, that something which makes a photo so alive. His gallery it`s his life, and it speaks for every one of us. Just by watching you learn, and if you get to know him, you`ll see that he showed you the way he is. Fantastic personality! I`m glad that i met you Bill. I`m honored to be your friend.
