Welcome to my World ❤️ of travel, landscape, poetry & flowers.
Stop by and either fave/ comment or just admire..... Some actually manage all three 😊 but I don't mind, it's up to you.

*.:。✿*゚‘゚・Comments, especially personal and relevant - I will always read, appreciate and strive to reciprocate. Big, small - they`re all treasured and greatly valued.

✿ Contacts:
If you are on my list and I'm following you, it means we have a mutual respect.


My friends (many of whom I have had since early days of flickr) are small in number, loyal - and of great importance to me, receiving priority.....I dearly love them all !!!

Love it !!! it is in my blood. My camera cost me £400, a tidy figure for me. If I paid thousands for a DSLR, I doubt my work would be any different.
What IS important to me is how a picture looks. Naturally if it is poorly taken, no amount of editing will change that......but a camera isn`t GOD, it tells it like it is. My simple processing is showing the viewer how I see things from my eye.

p.s Flickr has it`s faults, but we are the people that form a community bond so strong and unshakable, we make it work. For some it is only about photography and success: they have moved on to 500px or Ipernity. Thank you for your support. and loyalty - Long may it continue.</I

    soniaadammurray - SLOWLY TRYING TO CATCH UP says:

    "Anne is a person whom I admire, she is a warm, loving and caring person with a wonderful sense of humour. She is a wonderful and sensitive artist and her work is beautiful, much of which she puts together with the poetry she so loves. She has a heart of gold and has joined me in posting work encouraging people to embrace our differences, be compassionate and bring situations which must be changed to people's attention. I consider Anne a good friend and encourage everyone to look at her works of art, they are well worth looking at!"

    "A visit to Anne's Flickr site never fails to entertain and inspire. Whether she's posting a photo from around the corner or around the globe, each is thoughtfully composed, artistically processed and meaningfully partnered with poetic text and/or philosophical musing. Greatly appreciated is the consistent feedback and support she provides in my own photography. Plus we like to laugh and have fun :) It's a joy and honor to have Anne as my contact and friend!"

    "Anne is full of heart and feelings and must be the kindest person I have ever encountered. My story is similar to that of Stu Bloggs and I can echo his words in their entirety.

    If you are a friend of Anne she will always be there for you whatever and I would like to be able to live up to her very high standards.

    On the photography side, Anne has great natural ability and combined with her love of poetry she comes over to me as a genius at times.

    Well done Anne, may all your troubles be little ones! 12.15.12."

    stu.bloggs..Dont do Sundays says:

    "Anne is a reliable and conscientious contact, often putting other peoples feelings before her own and has been a great source of encouragement and steadfastness to me during a very difficult period, to which im eternally grateful.
    Her love of the written word(especially poetry) shines through in her descriptive text accompanying all her posts and im well chuffed that she has thought to add some of my meagre attempts at that genre onto her profile :-)
    So if you want to enjoy some wonderful photography along with beautiful words this is the place to be."

    "The thing we like most about Anne's work is it's naturalness, stunning colours and textures; but nothing is forced or fake. We also love Anne herself for her friendly nature and the way she brightens up our lives with the little stories behind her photo's. Thank you Anne, we are so happy to know you."

    "I would like to start by saying this testimonial is long overdue.
    Anne has been a Flickr friend for 10 months now and is one of the nicest, kindest and loveliest people here on Flickr. She has always been there to comment on my pics and continues to encourage and support myself and all her other contacts.
    They say Flickr is all about photography. I disagree……Anne’s photostream is unique. She matches great photographs with poems and stories which, like her comments, come straight from her heart.
    Anybody that knows Anne will quickly find out that her sense of humour is amazing and can bring a smile to your face on the worst of days!
    To be a contact of Anne is like being part of a community. She will always find time to reply to any comment you make on her photostream, something I find amazing and very rare.
    I wish to thank her for her generous support and encouragement over the last 10 months and long may it continue.
    Anne is one in a million"

    "Anne's wonderful bubbly personality and humour shine through her lovely photographs which are full and sunshine and happiness. I particularly love her captures of New York and also of our local Midlands area which we both love. She has a great eye for composition and colour. She always takes the time to look and comment about my work too for which I am grafeful but it is more than that, I am happy to call Anne my Flickr friend."
