I own a dog training school in Kentucky. I have a Doberman named "Chloe" and a Border Collie named "Callie". They are both 3 years old and I do Obedience and Agility with them. I would love to take some good Agility shots of them, but they are both very fast so I will have to improve my picture-taking skills to keep up with them. I love good photography and would like to get better at it. I have a nice digital camera that makes up for my lack of talent, so what I would like to improve the most is my creative eye. My main subjects are the dogs, sunrises, sunsets, and macro shots of flowers.

I find Flickr to be both depressing and inspirational. It depresses me to think how 'stick man-ish' my pictures are compared to some of the great photography here but I am also inspired to want to, and try to, improve my skills. I'm trying hard to squelch the depression and concentrate on the inspiration! :)

    "I have watched Vici's photostream become more of a 'not to be missed' over the last year. I have also come to know her as a 'kindred spirit' where photography is concerned........she loves what I like and visa versa!

    I have also come to trust her kindness and integrity enough to make her a 'friend contact' recently, so that she may see more of my life and family that I do not reveal as a rule for public viewing....:0)

    I agree so much with Tracy that Vici embodies the essence of "unconditional" and uses much of her precious time to write a wonderful comment on the photography that delights her 'eye buds'!!!
    I am very pleased to be one of her contacts...:0)"

    "My nephew got me started on Flickr in August 2008 and was my first contact... but the FIRST FRIEND I ever added was Vici, also in August 2008...nine months ago. I probably stumbled across one of her dog photos. (She loves dogs as much as as I do!) Vici is such a wonderful photographer.... but even more important, she's a wonderful person. She always has a kind word to share and is one of those rare friends that knows the meaning of "unconditional". I'm not the best at getting around to visit all my friends like I should, but that's never seemed to matter to Vici. Like good friends do, we just pick up where we left off. I consider Vici to be one of my BEST friends on Flickr.
    Thank you, Vici, for being such a wonderful friend! You are a blessing in my life!
    Love you! ~Tracey"
