I love life :) to travel, to eat and to take pictures of cats, food and flowers all these beautiful dogs, places, things and people around me: D

Thank you, birds , for my first Flickr pro-account that made me trully addicted and still an old skool.

Thanks, all my Flickr friends, for inspiration!

Feel free to add me as a contact but recently I try to keep my contact list short reasonable, to be still able to catch up with the updates from my friends, so excuses in advance for not adding you back.
No photos, no avatar? No reason to add me or fave my photos - I will block you. I'm allergic to gray buddy icons, sorry.

    "I was lucky enough to find Ira's photos one day. I enjoy them and find her eye and composition inspiring. From the simple shots of coffee cups to the underside of flowers stretching for the light, the feelings of joy at the beauty she has found encompasses her art. Lucky me."

    "Me4ta really is a dream that I can actually see now. That dream of the place where I grew up and which will always be with me wherever I go. Her talents help to keep the dream alive! She gives me a very warm feeling each and every time I visit her stream. I'm just bad at leaving enough comments :) Happy to have such a friend on flickr! One of only a few."

    "Me4ta, "a dream" well apart from the dream like qualities of some of me4ta's work there is little dreamy here. Her work shows that she has full control over her medium. I find myself returning time and again to her site and each time I discover something new, a sign of quality surely. How fortunate are her friends to be served food prepared by her as shown in her food set. I hope me4ta never tires of taking photographs because I for one will never tire of looking at them."
