QUOTES .... !
"If all the world's a stage.where does the audience sit?" - George Carlin
You don't take a photograph. You ask, quietly, to borrow it. ~Author Unknown
Photographers deal in things which are continually vanishing and when they have vanished there is no contrivance on earth which can make them come back again. ~Henri Cartier-Bresson ... and that's exactly why I don't do weddings!
’like the collector,
the photographer is animated
by a passion that,
even when it appears to be for the present,
is linked to a sense of the past.’ ... Susan Sontag
If I could show you through words the things I see ... I wouldn't need a camera ... and, if I could photograph you the world truly ... I wouldn't need words.
"...Soldiers' graves are the greatest preachers of peace."
— Albert Schweitzer
"The only thing of importance, when we depart, will be the traces of love we have left behind."
— Albert Schweitzer
I really do appreciate all kind comments, words and critiques, but PLEASE ... no comments or invites with badges, large images, multiple invites, award levels, flashing icons, or award/post rules.
If you don't display a profile picture, have anything (i.e. a photostream) available to me to base a privacy judgement on, or have relatively disturbing images saved in your favorites, I will need to block you until your Flickr page is a little more user/family friendly. Thanks for understanding.

"I can't believe this, NO testimonials yet? What the .... !
So, here goes ~ right from the very first contact with Monica I felt an instant liking, an instant bond; she appeared 'out of the blue' like a breath of fresh air and has made my time on Flkr such an enjoyable one.
Anyone visiting Monica's Flkr-photostream would realize that she is a sensitive soul. Her lovely portraits of children are delicate and soft also whimsical ... they are obviously taken by a woman who knows a mother's love.
Monica has an energy for life that is inspirational and a sense of humour that's infectious! I love and enjoy her very natural portraits of people in places like Ireland and Spain. She seems to effortlessly be able to capture the true essence of what it is to be human. Her portraits of local characters ... an old man's craggy face, the simple enjoyment amongst friends singing and dancing, or a family get together, seem to hold for us a thousand stories.
Monica skillfully manages to breathe life and interest into the mundane ... her photos are like that of a painter's, recording of the simpler ordinary things in life.
Thankyou Monica for your wonderful photostream and your friendship and support"
