Owning to the Service Support Issues & 2 times my questions were not answered. My Pro Account was lapsed.

On Jul 4th, 2007 my daughter Natchaliti purchased it as the "Father's Day Gift". I appreciate it Natalie!!

My apologies if I did not respond to add you as " your contact." As www.Flickr.com have its limitations, I hate to see that your name is deleted.

Mar 8, 2007, flickr have "moderated" my account, because I post Artsy Nudes to conduct study & research on view flickr rates; viewers behavioral science & technique. No porn nor genital parts were posted. As I am bought up in the close & authoritarian society & I am totally against porn!! However, I am accused for doing so!!

That gives them the reasons to block my images for the public. This is not the 1st time such high handed activities happening to me. These have been happening since Sept 29, 2005.

It is noted that the contacts on flickr inspector is only 965. These are generated using flickr API by 3rd parties.

I have check the contacts list in flickr inspector, 95% of contacts are unknown to me.

fd flickr toys numbers is totally incorrect.

With major search engines having track records on "Click Frauds" , these experience that I gone through reflect that on here is not purely a computer system, is with Real human touch!!

flickr remain the best photo management site among many others.

A good person to have on your side - he fights for what is right. I admire his views on art and particularly on nude art. He's had his problems on Flickr, and I am sorry to see this, as he is one of the coolest people on here.

    Thanks Charlie for being there. *smooches*"

    "I am but a single drop of water in the ocean of testimonials for CharlieBrown8989, but his work obviously inspires people to put their praise into words. Charlie captures images with such style and grace - his eye brings unique perspective that can only be summed up in one word: art. I was drawn in by his beautiful roses, which he humbly calls "tributes" to the legions of people who follow him on Flickr. I've stayed ever since - each picture he posts is a bright ray of sunshine... just like Charlie himself."

    This man is someone love to Learn & Share and great to learn from!!

    It is difficult for me to say how good he is! ! Because. to me he is too good to say in word.

    We have been chatting online for few times. He have been very resourceful & helpful to me.

    I cannot figure out how he can make a simple thing to become a so beautiful master piece of Art.

    I believes a picture can show out a photographer person character , Now I really experience it myself.

    Some people have that gifted or there are natural endowments.

    But this man have all , He have scientist/doctor sense of details observation and a natural artistic eyes for all beautiful things. That make him popular; admiration+envy by so many people on the net!!

    Do I praising him too much ? No, I'm not !!

    Thanks for sharing these pictures. I am sure I would benefit and learn much from them. For a man of such credentials, I wonder how he finds time to handle the massive amount of info he is hosting online with his own work.

    "Charlie is a very special person in the Flickr community. You have only to glance at his photostream to see that not only does he have an artistic eye for colour and composition but also has the technical knowledge and ability to back it up. I am amazed at the huge variety of subjects he turns his camera to and the display of colour, texture and light. His photostream is a pleasure and an inspiration.

    He has more testimonials than anyone else I have come across and that alone is a good indicator of the kind of person he is. He is obviously a man who is interested in everything and everyone and he comes across as a very kind and genuine person. A perfect example of a Flickrite. Hats off to you Charlie.

    In addition to being a GREAT photographer, he is a very special flickr friend. I really appreciate some of the assistance he has provided me. I am honored to have met him through flickr."

His NaNo photographs are out of the world! I never knew such a technique existed. Each and every photo of his are to be relished, taking time to savor its beauty and with 2500+ photos, you will be well ocupied with his photos!
    One timely example to show his photo quality is the number of visits he has received. With a quarter million visits achieved recently (Jan 2007), one can know how much he is loved and appreciated by this community! He is a very nice person both on and off the site and is one of the greatest assets of flickr.

Because of these friends and Charlie it has made the difficult times bearable.
    Many people have said well deserved comments about our friend - what would I like to add - well - that he is an excellent photographer, has an experts eye, he is knowledgeable and interesting, full of humor and makes your visit to his photo stream a pleasure - but more than this he is a good man who is considerate of his fellow flickr friends - and despite the many miles that separates all of us he brings us closer.

Since, I'm not very proficent at art or photography, I sometimes wonder what Charlies NaNo pictures are all about. I am still trying to understand Charlies mystery. Though, after long whiles, Charlie has become part of my life and my family, whether I like it or not, I will have to learn from him slowly. So take your time people, and check out the site.

    Charlie is one of those professional photographers that inspires me so very much. Let him teach you how to create beauty through the lens. His photography is so inspirational! He is a master at what he does, and I am happy be one of his friends.

    His newest set, NaNo is absolutely STUNNING! A must see!!! if you need eye candy, this is the place to go first.

    A sensationalist for dramatically beautifying the unseen, and decorating our lives with colours never seen before. A fiercely loyal Flickr-rite, sadly oppressed by external forces, but yet staying true to his cause. Very dedicated photographer whose noble joy is to share his vision of unseen beauty, colour and joy to others, and in that, bring light to our lives.

This is quite a different world but it's like a mirror in which we see the faces & wounds of the real world. Charlie is master in manipulating the camera lenses & manuvering the digital work & photoshop tools. He enhances the beauty to its extreme & brings out pearls of macro world from the depth of the subjects. I wonder how this wizzard of the images manage so many differnt works of photography at a time.
    All his images invite to see & appreciate his great skill & devotation .
    I hope that this creation of wonderful world of images will be continued for a long long time.
    As a friend he is one of its kind, very kind & always ready to give tips to flicker friends. He is the first person who wrote a tesimonial for me & I know that I did not expect any testimonial at that time.

He brings his photography to us with such tenderness, such care and such love that it's a sheer joy to keep looking at his photograhs wandering what he will deliver next. His macro photography is as awe-inspiring as I have ever seen. He creates art with a camera and he does this by having a natural eye for what he thinks will look good."

    I am admiring with this stunning collection of just perfectly created pearls! I am mesmerized with a refined and exotic aroma of Asia. With mystic Beauty of orchids. With fascinating fragrances of spices. With incredible wisdom of ancient China sages. With magic power of Oriental Gods and Goddesses...
    Mr CharlieBrown is a true epicure of Life! He is deeply charmed with every hue, with every haint of it"s Beauty!
    His sensitive Artistic eye notices a hidden Beauty everywhere. He finds it in the morning dew. And - in the shining drops of a summer rain cooled down on the rose petals. He finds it in a fairy shape of peaches or... persimmons. Or in leaves and stems of Asian plants. And... - in enchanting power and refinement of an Oriental cuisine! But... What"s even more important - Mr CharlieBrown so artistically transmits this subtle feeling of hidden Beauty to us!
    I do love his PhotoArt. Every photo is beautifully done - with a perfect craftsmanship!
    Besides, Mr CharlieBrown is a nice friend. Wise. Kind. Supportive. Attentive. And... always encouraging in his insightful comments! I wonder how is possible to find time to visit all his friends but... He finds! Always! He finds! And... Do You know why? Because he is a magician of friendship!
