DaizyB - View my most interesting photos on Flickriver

Welcome to my stream! So let's try to define myself a bit...

Graphic designer/art director, illustrator, wanna be photographer (ok, I just do it for fun...) and full time mom, I am now fully enjoying my New Nikon D300 and learning each day, trying to improve my skills. All constructive comments are appreciated and encouraged.

I don't think I have a "style" yet, if I ever find one, that is. I like to experiment and you will find scenics, portraits, street photography and also funny shots or just textures I like and inspire me. I learn from looking at the best flickr photographer and by my many mistakes (I mean, they do say that practice makes perfect!).

I got involved with the 365 days project for a few reasons, but mainly, it allows me to learn everyday what I can do with portrait (or self-portraits here)... Harder than it may seem, I strongly believe that if I am able to get a decent SP, I will eventually be a much better portraitist.

Note: I always look at profiles of people who fave my pics or add me as a contact. If I see pictures that looks suspect (read pedophile, predator or fetishist...) I WILL BLOCK you, even if you faved a scenic. It happened before and will not hesitate to do it again.

    "Je suis de plus en plus impressionné par la qualité du travail de ton travail .Tes photos sont inventive. Dans chacune d'elle, dans chaque situations tu parviens à faire quelque chose de beau même avec des choses tellement simple. Les autre tout aussi belle mais plus touchante voir comique, amusante, ludique sont digne d'une perfectionniste qui a l'œil. tu as énormément de talent !
    Amicalement Yoann"

    "Anne Marie est une merveilleuse artiste qui allie le regard aigu d'une graphiste à des qualités humaines rares.
    Elle possède le sens, la justesse du regard qui font les grands photographes. Elle sait trouver la beauté même dans le brouillard !!

    Autre chose la rend unique. Il est des choses que les hommes savent sur les femmes et que les femmes ignorent. Il n'y a rien de plus éblouissant qu'une femme qui invente les codes de sa propre beauté. C'est ce qu'elle a su faire, avec une énergie venu d'ailleurs (d'où son goût pour la SF !!). Le spectacle de cette beauté qui s'épanouit, qui s'explore, est sans cesse admirable, drôle et aussi bouleversant pour les blessures qu'on devine.
    Je l'ai rencontré grâce à un "vieux russe" et depuis je ne peux plus la quitter du regard !!

    Elle a su devenir un magnifique humain !!
    Un talent rare !! Une amie rare !!
    Une merveille !!

    Anne Marie is a magnificent artist who allies the pointed glance of a graphic designer to rare human qualities.
    She possesses the sense, the correctness of the glance who make the greats photographers. She knows to find the beauty even in the fog !!

    Other thing makes her unique. There are things which the men know about the women and which the women ignore. There is nothing more brilliant that a woman who invents the codes of her own beauty. It's what she knew to make, with an energy come moreover (that's why she loves SCI-FI !!). The spectacle of this beauty which blooms, which investigates, is ceaselessly admirable, funny and so deeply moving for the wounds as we guess.
    I met her with the " old Russian " and since, I cannot leave her any more... of the glance !!

    She knew how to become a magnificent human being!!
    A rare talent !! A rare friend !!
    A miracle !!"
