I seem to have an obsession for collecting weird things
I like to have time to just think
I love the woods


Taking photos makes you see everything so differently, I'm glad it does.

    "I have been captivated by Sophies work since i first found her stream. Since then she has always delivered the most beautiful self-portraits in the most stunning landscapes. She can find things some of us may miss and make it beautiful just by placing herself near it. So much talent."

    "There is far to much to say when talking about how amazingly brilliant you are!!

    You remind me that even simple ideas, can be the most beautiful.
    Your photography always captivates my mind, and i could spend hours looking through your stream.
    I remember when i first saw your photography, and I was amazed. I had only wished to be as good as you someday, and I still do. You are one of the most inspirational photographers to me, and one that keeps me going and growing.
    So thank you for that.
    Also your tones, and colors, and SETTINGS (very jelous of the amazing settings you have) you have in each photo are just unbelievable! they are images from dreams, and seem like they could not actually be in this planet!

    So, to sum this all up in one line.
    Sophie, you are inspiration at its finest! I truely can not wait to see what you bring us this year!"

    "There are no words to describe how amazing your pictures are, but I'll have to try. :)
    Every time you upload something here it absolutely blows me away. Your creative ideas, locations, editing, everything is so perfect.
    I love your 365 and it's one of my favorite's, ever.
    You just create a story with your photos, with so many details and each one is unique and beautiful and interesting.
    Even on your 'off' days you manage to produce something that inspires me.
    Every now and again, when I lack motivation and inspiration, I just go through your stream and am awed by everything all over again. :)"

    You touch us with your pictures. Especially me.
    I always see so much emotion when I look at your pictures. It comes across so real and I belive you.

    Aswell you always show how beautiful our nature is. I don't know anybody who is able to create such amazing picture in the nature like you do. The colors, the light, the locations...you are like such a stunning photographer.

    I admire you for everything you do and did. You have my full respect. You really do!"

Her stream is filled with so many stories all captured through her camera. :) She's inspired me with ideas and the hope that I will be able to find my style as long as I keep persevering. I await every new picture from Miss Sophie because I know she will blow me away yet again! Sophie and her talent are unforgettable and I pray that she continues to shine and grow in her passion."

    "Sophie's (or crashbangsqueak as she is known here) 365 is honestly one of the best here on flickr. I can't tell you how much I admire her constantly amazing photos day after day and day.

    I can't even describe how much your photos amaze me. They are just pure jaw-dropping and I promise you that by day 365, you are going to be just unbelievable."

    "after commenting on almost every single one of your uploads, i decided it was time to write a testimonial. cause it's just ridiculous that i haven't done it yet :)

    SOPHIE. i have no idea where the inspiration for your work comes from, but it's really spectacular. i mean, wow. most 365's get a little tedious to follow during the middle, but not yours. you've consistently come up with something refreshing and invigorating everyday. i mean, who else would go to a tennis court in a long sleeve green dress for a photo shoot? :D i really do hope that you continue on with photography and your photoshop skills. you're doing things with photoshop that i didn't even know existed which is awesome. i look forward to seeing what you come up with tomorrow, and the next day, and the next day. i'm sure it's going to be FANTASTIC.

    sincerely,
    Shari ♥ :D"

Whenever I go through her work, it makes my day. How she only has 1 front page, I don't know. She deserves to have a lot more than that. Keep it up ^.^"

    "I feel like you have gotten a lot of these recently, but its made me realize how much I need to write one. I really have'nt been a contact of yours for that long maybe two or three weeks. I went through and I have looked at all your photos however. Its amazing how you seem to have so much creativity and its really awesome to see how much work you put into your photos. You can tell it means a lot to you because you are always getting dressed up and sometimes doing crazy things like getting covered in paint. Your photos are all so great and you deserve a lot of appreciation and are extremely inspiring. I hope you go far."

Where everyone else struggles now and again with this project, you consistently create work thats visually impressive. You've defiantly got one of the best "Project 365's" i've come across and i think it's because you have a such a natural and real style. Keep up the awesome work..."

    It is without a doubt that you have something very special. The way you link yourself with your surroundings in your work inspires me so much. You often seem to be looking out towards another world in your photographs, but the truth is that you have already found one. Through your camera, we can enter it too, and it is so beautiful."

    "Well this is long over due.

    It not always easy to describe how stunning your photography is. There are only so many times I can say “brilliant”, or “awesome” or “fantastic” without getting repetitive, but the fact is each piece you upload is all of these things (and many other things). You are a very talented & creative artist who deserves all the credit (& more) you get. You are very much an inspiration.

    It just a shame you watch some utter rubbish on TV :)"

    but your stream is so beautiful. as in... truly.
    i hadn't been on your stream for about two weeks, and there were just SO MANY amazingly beautiful photo's.
    i'm actually all bug eyed, and my head is going "woahwoah"
    basically... well done, amazing, woah. :)

    and because there seems to be very few english people on flickr, and from your (very amusing) descriptions, i realised you're english too (WOO) i suddenly like you even more, and totally understand your weather problems.. :)

    anyway... i'm now jabbering on about total rubbish.
    your photo's amaze me. lots. :)
    and lots.

    and i'm ACTUALLY going now. bye, :)"
