I can also be found at…
To say I take photographs constantly may be a bit of a stretch, but it's fairly close to being an accurate statement. I like to feel what is around me, then try capturing that moment...hopefully making the photograph more than just something visual, but something felt.
My heartfelt appreciation for stopping by to visit with me. If you would like to blog any of my photos, please ask for permission first.
Thank you to Doug Dorsett for the profile photograph.

"This woman, Sharon, has this uncanny ability to hit me to my very core with her images. Frequently, her posts have a visceral impact on my psyche. It's almost as if she were a psychologist bringing me to a new insight and I usually feel transported right into her posts. Sharon's tremendous style is unique and solidly all her own. There is a very strong and sensitive woman behind this beautiful BlueChameleon world, so venture through slowly....I want all your wishes to come true, Sharon, and I love you."

"Sharon's stream was one of the first ones I had found two years ago when I joined flickr.. and I was hooked immediately. There was an incredible depth and beauty about her images.. they resonated very deeply with me. There is an unmistakable aura of mystery and intrigue in her work, and each piece transcends the moment she captured into a feeling.. a mood.. a song. She has been an inspiration for me and I've always found both peace and a sense of intuitive understanding of the world through Sharon's eyes. And now I am lucky enough to call her a friend. All the best to you, Sharon!"

"I love her pics, she makes me dream, she is the author of some of the best pictures on Flickr...
Grazie per le tue immagini, Sharon."

Kirsty Mitchell says:
"Its a little sad for me, but I sometimes find it difficult to find strong, intelligent, artistic women on flickr. Which is why I couldn't believe my luck when Sharon 'found me' through my blog. This woman is a serious contender, an inspiration and a kindred spirit. She has my absolute respect and produces beautiful, evocative, 'pieces' - combinations of words and stolen moments, pockets of perfection that always strive me to push myself further. In short shes a true artist, its in her soul.....and she's also become a lovely friend. :)"

Rita Crane Photography says:
"Powerful fine art photography full of emotion, depth, mystery, and poetry. One of my very favorite Flickr photographers. I am so glad to have found you here on Flickr, Sharon! You are an inspiration!"
February 9th, 2008
"PLEASE everybody - watch Sharon's pictures as a slideshow!!!
I just did - and had a fab time!!
I'm really sorry I didn't do that before - I was struck back with awe! The pure artistry, humanity and skill put on display here is pure wonder!
Thank you for sharing!"

"I guess other people have said most things already, but I still wish to add my voice to the choir of admirers. One thing that really impresses about Sharon's photographs is how difficult it is (and maybe even impossible) to break them into individual elements (in other words, analyse them). As an amateur photographer, this is what I normally do: I analyse what masters are doing, and then try to repeat that, step by step. This just does not work with Sharon's photographs. Perhaps it is exactly that "non-analyse-ability" which makes her work art in the true sense. I only wish for larger images (but absolutely understand why she cannot post those). On top of everything else, her choice of music (or lyrics) that accompanies her photographs always puts me in the right mood (I cannot help but be sentimental to the music of my own youth). All in all, I am deeply grateful to Sharon for sharing her work with us on flickr."

"Visiting the photostream of Sharon is like taking a walk on the borderline of dream.
She's got the vision, and the touch. Hidden things come clear, and heart suddenly can hear.
She feeds our...Wish!"
November 20th, 2007
"Her photos, yes, they are really amazing...
But the true matter is - I'm sure - that we all just love her.

"Sharon has an absolutely amazing talent for photography , and has awesome depth in her shots and an amazing imagination for taking pictures. And many people are very inspired by her, including me."
October 25th, 2007
"I don't know Sharon very well but I was immediately attracted to her photo stream. Her images are so unique that she's in a class of her own. I like her creativity and she is a very talented artist. She is also very kind and great with words. I always find something enchanting in her images. Sit back, relax and look around. I think you'll see what I mean."
October 12th, 2007
Michael Ash Smith says:
"Inspirational, intriguing, atmospheric and beautiful are just some of the words I come up with when describing Sharon's images. Her photographs and words consistently amaze not only me, but the rest of the flickr community.
Sharon provides us raw, organic photography. I feel like I'm walking with her through her world as she captures the beauty in all her subjects ... whether nature, person, or city.
You will continue to be an inspiration to me. Thank you Sharon."

Farfarm (taking a break) says:
"When looking at Sharon's stream, there is never a dull picture, never the ordinary, never the average, but always the different, the remarkable, even if you don't like them all as much, every image has something to say, to tell a story behind it; even without her great texts they speak for themselves, as you will see..watch them and judge for yourself !"
August 3rd, 2007
"What can I say. I'm just getting to know Sharon, but she's one of the rare people whose photostream I took the time to go completely through. Every shot is a masterpiece. Sharon seems to occupy a dream world, a beautiful space where everything is both less and more than what is seen. Each image is evocative, inspiring, and emotional. Beautiful work, and I look forward to seeing more."
July 17th, 2007
"Sharon is always spot on. She walks the fine line between perfection and artistic freedom. Sharon sets emotions going. It´s all a whirlwind heat and flash.
Her pictures are a journey you have to take."

Levan Kakabadze says:
"Sharon opens way different world with her photos. She has her own style of showing beautify of human feelings. Each photo carries a message that touches my heart. I enjoy going through her gallery."
May 11th, 2007
"I'm aware of the debt of gratitude I you Sharon. Your work is compelling; it often has to be looked at and taken in before a deeper meaning, beyond the instantly apparent, and understanding, beyond the superficial, can be fully grasped. I think your past maybe full of sorrow, yet think this is also a major driving force in your work. Thanks for being an inspirational Flickr photographer!"

"A goddess who has descended from on high, assumed human form, and decided to share with us, image by image, her heavenly vision. Each moment that she tarries here among us is a blessing."

sakura love says:
"Sharon is the most sweet person on flickr.. She show me the most beautiful dream I have ever seen. Her words and her images are the emotion we all have, but we can not express the way she did. You make me so happy, not because you comment on all my images..heheh ( that might be one of the reasons ) .. because you can touch the feeling using your camera."
March 19th, 2007
"Such an inspiration here in Flickr! I always have a take two looks at Sharon's work, first at the image. The second... what is she trying to say here. What I see... what does that say about me? Her work is never obvious, beautifully poetic. I find it so easy to get lost in her work, like a great book you can't put down."

Lorrie= :oP says:
"I love to be taken away to another time....another place.....a romantic interlude...a moment frozen in time forever branded in my heart and mind and Sharon takes me there with her images!
Sharon is able to evoke such feelings of passion and melancholy and hope through her images. Whenever the bluechameleon has a new image, I rush to see it-because I know that she has dug into my psyche and has fulfilled a yearning to "feel" a moment in time.......and I continue to be taken away.......Grazie Sharon!"
March 14th, 2007
"If you are into the poetry of photography, or the photography of poetry, then you are at the "write" place because Sharon (bluechameleon) is really good at writing place with light. Enjoy being inspired!!!"
February 28th, 2007
"Sharon's photography...always evocative; always thought-provoking and always beautiful...inspires me daily. Her work invokes a sense of nostalgia even though I may have never seen what she's seen. I can hardly wait for the next masterpiece to be posted!
I count myself lucky to have Sharon as a flickr friend. She is one of the best contacts a person could have. Her thoughtful and insightful comments always bring a smile to my face."

Voight Kampff says:
"Sharon è semplicemente geniale, ogni suo scatto riesce a trasmettere un emozione, è qualcosa che trascende la semplice fotografia: è arte allo stato puro.
Grazie per averci fatto entrare in questo mondo fatto di immagini e poesia."
February 18th, 2007
"...there is always this special mood of melancholy, separation but also deep confidence in Sharon´s photos. She always amazes me with her very own way and constant style of picturing the world and her understanding of and thoughts about her. Her photos always are able to tell a thousand stories and that´s why I love her shots so much..."
January 22nd, 2007
"Sharon is a beautiful person and she can be seen it by her photos. The mirror of her soul."
January 10th, 2007
"Well shes walking through the clouds
With a camera eye thats running round
Butterflies and zebras
And moonbeams and fairy tales
Thats all she ever thinks about
Riding with the wind."
December 31st, 2006
"Each and every visit to Sharon's folio is like walking through a mystical forest of dazzling dreamscapes. The repetition of being able to consistently bring us excellent image after excellent image is visually-enhancing and I am proud that I have her as a contact.
Her cinematic-eye and core-art expressionisms are at quite a high pinnacle and I find myself floating atop the spaces that unite there. A defining and all-around talent she is! Flickr's hidden secret, I must say!
Always a pleasure to visit you! Continue to shine, you creative soul!"
December 22nd, 2006
"There are so many words to define the photography you will see in this photo stream. For me, these words are Artistic, Creative, and Unique. bluechameleon has a style that stands alone. Her way of creating mood is in another word Amazing. Her photography takes on a theatrical feel. Well thought and perfectly executed. I highly recommend taking the time to enjoy the photo stream of bluechameleon!"
November 13th, 2006
" There is a lot more going on here at flickr than simply shooting and uploading photos. bluechameleon provides the perfect example of what I am talking about. In her photos I hear poetry, feel emotion, and see incredible beauty. The senses are awakened when viewing one of her her photos. It has been said that a picture is worth a thousand words, I say her photos are worth a thousand feelings.
Here also is a woman who takes the time to consistently notice and leave encouraging comments on my own efforts, which I deeply appreciate, especially coming from someone whose work I admire so much.
I urge you all to take a close look at her photo stream, for here is a woman who truly puts her soul into her work!"

"Wow desde que conocí a bluechameleon sus fotografías me dejaron perpleja, todas las emociones y detalles que brinda en cada foto deja a uno pensando y bocabierta, son impresionantes y me alegra haberte conocido, es un gusto para mi !!!"
October 24th, 2006
" As her photos metamorphize from one to another, as a chameleon her colors change, the common thread weaves a complex tapestry of form and emotion, thought patterns and memory drop into pixels of image creating shadows of dreamlike waves of light streams, burned in ethereal fragments of eternal metaphors, mental pictures forever filed never to be forgotten..................she permeates and penetrates, and you soak it in."

one bluechameleon photo is one photo lesson for me.
thanks for share"

""bluechameleon" is the kind of photographer who knows when to catch the right moment. Her photos are always a visual treat. She is the master of subtle tones and lighting."
October 3rd, 2006
"Sharon is clearly talented. Where most people would use that to feed their ego, she turns it around as enthusiasm and genuine support for everyone around her."

"Everyone loves to go to a show and watch some magician. We even pay money for such an event, and we often equate "magical" with photography. One of the best "magic shows" in photography is to see a good photographer stop, pause, look around, and re-evaluate her work. The unfortunate part with Sharon's work is that such a pause and change gave me a case of whiplash (but, I am taking medication for that now).
There is a magic show going on here, and while we can agree with that about certain photographs individually, the bigger magic is happening when we consider «L'ouvre integral». It would be a shame if you just catch a photo on a pool or her ever increasing presence in Explorer, for the true enjoyment is to constantly watch for her work. This is a work that belies the subject, because that can be rather varied, and really lies within her, and she is offering a peek into such a world.
Hopefully, the magic show remains free of charge, and it will sure keep improving with time. This show is certainly not over!"
