I am 35 years old (As of October 18, 2012), which is hard to believe, but it is what it is!!! 5 more years, and I'll be 40, which I am not thinking about right now!!!

Sometimes, I am able to access Flickr, but sometimes I cannot. I appreciate your patience in this matter. I didn't forget about anyone, so don't worry.

**To my contacts: I appreciate all of your comments on my past pictures, but I had to remove some of them. I wanted to start out fresh since my absence from Flickr. I also don't have a Pro account at this time, so my space is limited. I am current trying to save up for Pro, so hopefully will go Pro in the future. I apoligize if I deleted pictures that you favorited.**

I have been married to a wonderful husband, since 2001. I also have three "furr babies". More specifically, my cats.

I am Easy Going. I also like to read and I like cars (Old & New). I also like Vintage or Classic Signs. I also love, and collect My Little Pony!! I am a strong believer in angels. I am also a shy person, but once I know everyone, I open up easy.

I also occasionally do volunteer work, most recently at Celebrete Erie, Erie's summer festival, held downtown, and the Blues and Jazz Festival, held at Fronteir Park. I haven't been doing that recently, due to other obligations.

Photography is one of my best interests, besides reading books. I have taken some pictures of Niagara Falls in 1997. That was the beginning. Then I abandoned it for the while. Then, in the summer of 2006, I decided to get back into it.

While I'm not a professional, I enjoy photography as a fun hobby!!

I am still learning different techniques, but I know that I'll eventually learn. I appreciate everyone's comments!!

I am online at least once, or twice a day, to respond. If I don't respond right away, don't worry. I'll eventually respond to everyone.

Everyone is more than welcome to add me as a contact, and you don't have to comment on my pictures, if you don't want to.

**Everyone is more than welcome to invite pictures from my photostream into a group, but I may not be able to honor everyone's request. There is a limit for non-pro Flickr members. I still apprecaite everyone's invites!!**

**All pictures are all taken be me, unless noted in the captioning**

**All pictures are my property, but you can use them for personal use. You can also blog my pictures. In both cases, please adknowledge that I created the picture, or otherwise**

**I have no private photos in my account, unless otherwise noted**

***IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ!!! If you are a perv (And you know who you are), don't even bother adding me as a contact or Flickrmailing me. If you attempt to, you will be blocked and/or reported to Flickr!! I am very sensitive in this matter, and I want to be as comfortable as possible on Flickr.

Also, when I am on Flickr, I am looking to be friends only, and not for romance/love, so If you are looking for love, I am not the person for you. I am happily Married. If you attempt to do this in any way, you will be blocked and/or reported to Flickr!!

Also, last but not least, Constructive critisism and suggestions are always welcome. However, If you leave rude and nasty coments on either my pictures, or Flickrmail, you WILL BE BLOCKED, and reported. NO EXCEPTIONS!! I want to have fun on Flickr, and no one should be acting this way, while others are having fun!! I have already blocked someone because of this, and won't hesitate to do it in the future.

Thank you for your cooperation, and understanding.***

    "Mary's photography skills far exceed mine, and she is a good friend as well. Mary is so kind that she seems like she would give you the shirt off of her own back if you needed it. It's too bad that our flickr friends can't live within close proximity to us. Thank you for being a friend as well."

    "Mary is a fantastic photographer! I can tell that photography is her passion as well. She has a great eye for detail and I'm very happy that I found her on our local group here. It's nice to see people from my region here on Flickr trying to bring some NW Pennsylvania to Flick. Thanks for being my friend :) ~Igor"

    "Mary finds beauty in just about everything, and she knows how to make us see it too. She is a great ambasidor for the Lake Erie area with her lovely photographs. Her scenics are wonderful, and I also enjoy her architecturals. Mary has started a series on signs that I hope she will continue because they are so interesting, especially in black and white, hint, hint, hint.:-)"
