    "I admire you for making a fresh start. Sometimes I feel the same. I am just glad it's the same Maryanne with the same zest for photography; using it to show her home, life, and loves - images of the real, yet with a poetic touch that gives her photostream its universal appeal. Best wishes to you, Ms B."

    "Testimonial # 23, wow, people loves you, me too, I´ll try my best english without translator.

    Your stream is like a rollercoaster of feelings, in photos of very nice quality.

    Smiling, crying, emotive, wearing like a diva, like a child, like a girl, like Eva, LOL, I love all our pics and I commented in almost all your work.

    A special mention to Rob, in my opinion, like in "behind of all great man exist a great woman", behind you is him, your love, I told you several times, you are the perfect team.

    Like everybody, I love your work."

    "Maryanne is an outstanding woman, artist and photographer.

    The photographer: her skills in lightning and choosing perspective are awesome. She has a very good sense for setting the light at the right spot, to work out her subjects best. I am always amazed about her use of light in her portraits. But also her ability to use the right focus becomes manifest in her flower shots and the treatment of her photos is always appropriate and superb.

    The artist: she is definitely a true artist! Her sense for poses is very unique and captivates me in every portrait. Her creativity is reflected in all her funny, her serious, her sexy, her graphically pleasing and always special photos.

    The woman: As you can see in her portraits, Maryanne is a beautiful woman full of love, fun and serious thoughts about life. It is always inspiring to get her view on the world. Beyond that, I would love to spend some days with her, just listing to her favourite music. As you can see in her quotes, she has an excellent taste in this aspect as well. And as to quote one of her favourite singers: “it´s always more fun to share with everyone!”
    Thank you, Maryanne for being here, and sharing with us!

    Important note: Her love Rob has also done some shots you see here, and as one can see, he is very talented too, what a couple!"

    "Maryanne’s photostream is such an inspiration on so many levels. Her self portraits are always so well executed, revealing Maryanne in her happiest, most intimate or most vulnerable moments. The images are so powerful, the viewer can almost feel the emotions Maryanne feels when she is taking the photos. I also enjoy seeing her couple pictures because it reminds me that true love does exist!"

    "maryanne's photos are more than beautiful images -- they are intimate glimpses into her every day life, a life we are fascinated by because we see pieces of ourselves in it. her images speak the brutal and beautiful truth about love, anguish, and joy, and what it means to experience these emotions as a woman.

    i have never spoken to maryanne. i've never met her in person. we don't even live on the same continent. but i know her. i know her heart, because i have seen her pictures. this is what art is all about -- being brave enough to let others inside.

    thank you for having the courage to share your beauty with us."

    "Maryanne’s photos are beautiful, compelling and intriguing. Each one is crisp and perfect. She is able to express a wide range of emotions with fresh honesty. I admire her as a female photographer / model, it is a difficult balance, and tough to maintain integrity and dignity. She does both, with finesse and aplomb."

    "I've been wanting to do this for awhile, but I'm not sure how to put into words how good and alarmingly talented Maryanne is - for once I am lost for words - which is I guess as true a statement as I can make about my appreciation for her work.

    But I will add that, as her work is often a bearing of her soul, she is a remarkable soul as well and I'm grateful for being able to share her profound and sincere self-visions.

    Beautiful stuff! :)"

    "Maryanne seems to have that rare knack for "whatever-is-uploaded-will-be-a-masterpiece" and the bloom within seems to always cultivate my inner-hyperbolicness.

    I can only imagine (and confidently assume) that with time, this will be one of the most popular streams on flickr, and with the lack of absent breath, a quivering cheek of purpose and the creative/experimental fortitude she embodies, I hope to be here riding with her along this beautiful journey of photographic language.

    And did I mention that she is one of the kindest people ever? Well. There. I just did.

    Now everyone must be off and grasp the holding base, because the roller coaster has just begun!

    Many blessings to you always!"
