Thanks for stopping by! I discovered Flickr way back in 2004 and it changed my life, literally. I've taken more photos in the last 5 years than I did in my entire life before that. Flickr led me to uncover and nurture a talent that I never knew I had. Yay!
Several of my photos are available for purchase as prints and cards .
More about me?
I'm now part of a great team of folks creating a new photo editing site called PicMonkey. We've also got an official group here on Flickr: PicMonkey on Flickr. Join us!
I'm the former "Southern Hemisphere branch office" for Picnik, a cool site for editing your photos online (and from Flickr!). Picnik closed on 19 April 2012.
I'm also the Projects Manager for Utata. Utata is a collective of photographers, writers, and like-minded people who share a compelling interest in the arts. We began (and continue to exist) as a salon-style gathering of photographers who came together on flickr. As a group we are continuously evolving; Utata is more of a process than a final product.
Utata's latest major project:
I'm a contributor to Indicommons, a new site celebrating The Commons project on Flickr.
For a thumbnail view of the photos I've posted, have a look at Archives page.
For a Calendar view of my photos, have a look at my Date-Posted Calendar.
For a random look at my photostream, try this tool.
I have started several groups here on Flickr. Have a look:
Under the Lid: jars & the stuff in them
License to Drive: a collection of license plates from around the world
Adrenaline!: for all your extreme sports
Salt & Pepper: for all those shaker collectors

"Brenda is creative, knowledgeable, friendly and fun. I'm very glad to have met her!"
23rd October, 2009
Catherine Jamieson says:
"Brenda is good people. She approaches things with an open mind and a heart waiting to be delighted ... it shows in her photographs and perhaps even more importantly, in her relationships. What Brenda's pictures often do is make me smile - in that "yah, I get that" way. In flickr terms, her "stream" is the truest representation of that word that I know. She enriches because she's willing to BE enriched. Like I say, good people."

"Flickr would be impoverished without her!"
10th March, 2005
"I love curiouskiwi's photos, they are so varied I have the feeling I know lots of things about her and her environment. I like the fact that she lives on the other side of the world and finally, being quite a newcomer at Flickr, I find her incredibly helpful and knowledgeable in lots of ways"
