    "As gaivotas desenham triângulos no céu para a Luísa, porque só ela consegue perceber a geometria escondida das coisas. Tudo é ordem no mundo dela, uma ordem suave como a luz de Lisboa. Gosto muito de tudo o que ela faz. E sobretudo gosto ainda mais de a ter conhecido.

    Feliz Natal para ti minha amiga."

    "*L counts you as a friend...então não há razão pra medo: posso observar de perto como ela mistura simplicidade e magia diariamente e sempre com um sorriso suave e uma surpresa que ela provavelmente guarda no chapéu (*L me deleita sempre com seus olhos puros e me mostra um portugal ainda mais poético do que eu acreditava existir--se isso for bruxaria eu sou fã e gostaria de também ser filho e aprendiz,"

    "Luísas work has really an admirable special magic. Her photos are bewitching and intriguing and allways a great inspiration for me.... and i appreciate the creative way of Luísa to communicate in this "virtual reality" with such a vitality and cordiality.
    She is one of the people who make flickr to a piece of "real-life".
    thank you therefore"

    "*L has that magical eye, and more important, her interactions are playful. perhaps now and then you will be picked up by *L like a seashell, and placed on the sand next to a beautiful stone and a feather you suddenly want to look at. you find you are seeing things in the world and thinking "this is something Luisa might see." something that is suddenly muito *Lindo."
