"While there is perhaps a province in which the photograph can tell us nothing more than what we see with our own eyes, there is another in which it proves to us how little our eyes permit us to see." ~ Dorothea Lange

Pete Foley says:
"Cathy is a unique talent. Her compositional skills are extraordinary - she sees beauty in simple, elegant, clean, uncluttered images, judging perfectly when less is more, balancing interest and complexity against simplicity and elegance. The result is a spellbinding portfolio which screams class and artistic sensibility, and pictures with a unique signature which are unmistakably Cathy from the first view of a thumbnail. All the more remarkable, because all of this is achieved with a relatively simple camera."

"Cathy is most definitely one of THE ABSOLUTE BEST photographers on Flickr! You can quickly see this with just one glance at her gorgeous photostream! One look and you're hooked! ;) I've always been in love with her images, they are straight from her precious heart and you can certainly tell! :) Not only is she so incredibly talented but she has such a huge heart of pure gold! The sunshine in her heart and soul just shines through in her glorious images and in her very kind words. I know anyone who knows her knows what a true blessing she is and what a definite honor it is to be able to call her a friend! I know I do, she is such an amazing person and I'm so thankful to have her in my life! :D
Thank you Cathy for being such a great blessing to me! :D Thank you also for touching the world through your breathtakingly beautiful images hon! :) (((HUGS))) to you my dear friend! ♥"

"It almost seems redundant to write another testimonial. But Cathy is unique. Her work is simple and direct or perhaps better said, simply and directly brilliant. Whatever the essence is of an idea is visually, she captures it with color and beauty. And her support for other photographers is generous and always enthusiastic. Like many others, I especially look forward to her visits and comments."

"Catty is not only an incredibly talented photographer with a unique eye. Her pictures are more than that for me: they're pure Philosophy.
I never found anyone on flickr who can express so widely and simply the idea of the joy of life. This is really a gift.
And I've never met her in person, but I know she's a kind, warm, sensitive sweetie who I'm sure is surrounded by beautiful and loving people, on flickr and in everyday life.
Thanks my friend!! xxx"

"I cannot say anything more. Many others have said exactly what I want to, but nevertheless, I'll try to.
I first saw one Cattys images while browsing the explore page. It just stood out from the rest of the great pics on the page. To my amazement every single image in her stream is breathtaking and stunning. And if you have the time to look at the time to note what type of camera she has used, you will be too.
I couldn't help but drop her a mail, didn't expect a reply though. But to my utmost surprise she did, and since then she has become a great friend and a big inspiration and a helper. She always finds the time to leave a comment on one of my images and I thank her dearly.
Shes a superb photographer and really nice person."

"Lots of great photos are here to be seen. If you've been here five minutes, you know what I mean. Then there's this girl whose work isn't bad [lol]. It's much more than great, it's dreams that you've had. Grass....flowers...feathers from wings. Animals....bugs.....joy in little things. Hearts are her mark, and rightfully so. Passion...love....in her work really shows!
In the world of photography, wherever you roam.
One of the BEST here on Flickr Street, is cattycamehome!

"What can I say about Catherine? Her work is simply amazing! Especially for someone who, at first, was simply a viewer! So creative, so enjoyable, and of such high quality; each new picture of hers reinforces my admiration! All of her photographs were obviously composed by a truly unique and creative mind.
She's also very very nice!
Keep it up, please, because I'm following your work!"
