LaMadrilenya. Get yours at

Travel Addict in unbearable stages of withdrawal. Girlie-Girl. Unrepentant Foodie. People watcher. Soul Searcher. Guzzler of Diet Coke and champagne. Loyal, intuitive friend. Spaniard/Brazilian by birth, and American by choice. Animal lover who has dismally failed every attempt so far to become a vegetarian. And let's not forget collector of expensive handbags, shoes, and husbands.

I am also an amateur photog with adequate equipment and no training but a decent "eye" for composition (at least I got that going for me), mainly using a Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT and, more recently, my fierce new Canon 50D. I have yet to read the owner's manual, though--so I compensate my lack of technical knowledge by using software editing programs to correct light and color when necessary...although lately I've been playing more and more with texture overlays, diptych/mosaics, and other digital effects. I use Picnik to edit and I ain't ashamed to admit it.

    "Sandra is an enabler. I could never thank her enough for the source of encouragement that she's been for me. But the best part is that she also takes some truly stunning photos that are a vivid display of her love for life."

    "Sandra was my very first Flickr friend and the first to comment on my work and encourage me in my newfound love of photography. Since then, she has become one of my favourite people on-line and off. I always look forward to seeing her latest posts and her comments are insightful, supportive and sometimes wickedly funny! She sees beauty all around her and captures that beauty - not just through her camera, but with her insightful and witty prose. At times reflective, at other times hilariously funny. Always refreshing. Life just looks better through Sandra's lens.

    Oh, and she also happens to have impeccable taste in shoes and handbags. We really need to live closer to each other so we can share closets! ;)"

    The Tango of Photography says:

    "Sandra is a magician with her lens. Her shots seem to have such an aura of spontaneity, her bit of whimsy and flamboyancy entices us all. A mood capturer. Flights of fantasy in her compositions. Sandra lavishes praise in such a down-home style. I've been inspired by her comments on my photos. What a friend."

    "As I sit and think of my dear friend , Sandra, so much comes to my mind. I fell in love with her photography first as I passed it by.. It is superb in the sense that every emotion is captivated within the eyes of this artistic woman. But what stopped me in my tracks is the fact that this woman has the "moxy" of a strong, yet vulnerable woman. she is beautiful within and without.. she knocks your feet off with how she "sees life'. She is full of energy , love and deep , beautiful thoughts.
    She has the talent to be in the best galleries. This is no exaggeration. But she has the humbleness to do it all with flavor, energy, and honesty. . a truly gifted person" who seems to have the best of all great qualities.
    And on top of this all. She is a friend !.. I have never met Sandra personally, and yet she is a friend. . What a wonderful world!
    xx.. Isa ( besitos para ti mi amiguita, querida)

    blessings to you each and everyday.."
