Don't use my photos without asking first. I usually do not mind if you blog my photo with a link giving proper credit.

I don't mind adding people but don't add me if....
You do not have any photos.
You have thousands of contacts and just want to add me for numbers.
You have nudity of any kind on your stream.

    "Her snippets of Alaska life are what first caught my eye – those snowy walks through the woods, a fisherman lining up his catch. But as I explored Leaca’s stream more I found images evoking warmth and cheer that just make me feel at home. It seems her images all have a story behind them; they draw you in and make you want to know more. Thanks, Leaca, for inspiring me."

    "I am so happy that I found Leaca through flickr - her artwork is inspirational and beautifulf. She has a way of processing that is uniquely her own and I recognize it immediately. To me, that's one of the hallmarks of a true artist - development of style. She is kind and always has wonderful words of encouragement for other artists. I'm also very proud of collaborating with her. She is a blessing in my life."

    "Leaca was my first flickr pal. She has been so encouraging and always takes the time to educate me a little. I am amazed at how much she has learned in the past several months. She sees the lovely and the interesting and the quirky in the everyday and makes them into art.
    I love the glimpses into Alaska life and into her family and life and religion. In addition to being a gifted photographer with a great eye, she never forgets to leave a kind comment. I look forward to each and every one of her photos."

    "Leaca is one of my first Flickr friends, and I count myself fortunate to have befriended her.

    Her photography is one of the first ones I search for in my contact list daily. Leaca's nature shots are serene, her whimsy shots for macro Mondays are always clever. Her skills and talent grow daily through her continual curiosity and sense of wonder, and she has encouraged and inspired me to become a better photographer. She's a marvelous motivator too!"
