Welcome to my profile page.

I'm a housewife with camera who is constantly struggling to find a way that she can fit Flickr into her daily routine without falling into the addiction of it. So far it's been a losing battle.

The many quotes in my stream are a nod to my mother who seems to have had a never ending supply of quotes in her brain. These two quotes I find could be my life's motto:

“We are shaped and fashioned by what we love.” ~Johann Wolfgang Goethe

"Basically nature is my Genus Loci, or the place where my spirit resides."~Judith Anderson

My mom loved the work of Dr. Leo F. Buscaglia. Here is one of his quotes that I particularly like:
“Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.”

A bit of what I have "found" :
-confounded by the time Flickr consumes
-dumbfounded by the amazing talent there is in this world
-newfound interest in all things creative due to my experience on Flickr
-profound respect for the earth and its inhabitants.

I own the rights to all my photos. Please do not use them in blogs or anywhere without my permission.

    "mags, you know I love you to bits, and I love your pics, especially of your garden and of the Austrian landscape around you and your abstracts... and... and :)

    I hope that your life is wonderful and filled with happiness, and that is always far more important than flickr.

    I hope you find what you're seeking for in life, and that it treats you well!
    hugs

    "Mags...let's just say she's one of my top flickr friends. Her photos are always interesting and beautiful, and they often convey atmospheres that match their locations. I have enjoyed looking at her artistic, colorful, original, and moving photographs. Aside from being a great photographer, mags frequently visits my photostream and leaves kind, thoughtful comments, which I value and appreciate enormously.

    Thanks for being such a wonderful friend...

    :)"

    "Mags is a treasure. She has a wonderful and unique approach to her photography and her stream is full outstanding images, all of them deservedly rated as interesting by flickr. Her subject matter defies categorisation yet her stream embodies a sense of sincerity and humanity that quite inspiring.

    Thankyou Margherita for all your pictures and kind words."

    " Surprising I have also not done this long ago.
    Margherita's photography has a wonderfully calm quality to it. Her images reflect the peaceful nature of her personality and I am thrilled to have her as a contact and friend. I like to think of her as Flickrs own cultural guru. I enjoy reading her interesting and entertaining quotes. I am always assured I will find something to stimulate my mind or tickle my funnybone when visiting her stream. I love the way she stretches and challenges herself photographically, never resting on her laurels.
    She is truly a flickr friend.
    xoxo
    Suvarna"

    "Oh, what a shame, I never wrote you a testimonial!
    But now, let me correct this:

    Margherita is an amazing person, she says in her profile that she hopes to share a bit of her joy through flickr, and, I have to say that she shares A LOT of her joy with us in every new picture she adds to her photostream, through her lovely comments over our photos and her presence as our flickr contact.

    Mags can share the sweetest pictures and the more critical, interesting, wise quotes in every new art she presents us, but, I do have to say that, personally, I love it even more when we´re sharing our musicals on pictures ;o)

    I hope you have a great year my friend, one with the wisest words and the most delicious music when you need.

    Keep your great work and let us fly on the world you show us.
    Osmar"

    I was searching for since weeks:

    I wonder how perfectly Margherita correlates
    her beautiful photographs with famous matching lyrics
    into unique pieces of art !"

    "Margherita is always quick to feedback and encourage. She's a terrific photographer and I'm immensely flattered that she takes the time to enjoy my work. Of course Margherita's photos come with the added bonus of fantastic quotes which often serve to brighten up a dull day!"

    "Margherita's stream is not just full of beautiful landscape, impressive compositions and wonderful images, it's full of useful and interesting lessons that let us learn valuable information of sorted subjects.
    I enjoy so much each one of her photos and lessons and I'm so glad to found her work on flickr."

    "M makes us take that extra step towards discovery of all things beautiful
    A amateur? I don't believe so! Sophistication absorbed by Vienna art
    R realizes a teacher teaches by example, shares & cares for her fans
    G generous both with her time and with the sincerity of her words
    H happy in her heart, she finds happiness in every frequency of light
    A an innocent girl who still has the spring bloom of a surprised "AH!"
    R readily learning about photos "with a little help from her friends"
    I interested in discovering different implications of life via photos
    T thoughtful in her photo-images word-histories audio-delights
    A natural as a Flickr friend... she took to it like a golden fish in water!
    . . . .
    YES, MARGHARITA, thank you for all you do for all of us. We all adore you!"

    "mags_Tag, alias Margherita, alias Marg is a fantastic photographer, person and fan. She's been one of the first to comment on my photos and she continues daily (!) to react on most (!) of my new shots. With 235 contacts in her log, she deserves to be nominated for an Oscar in the Faithfulness Category... Marg mention in her profile she's addicted to Flickr. Personally, I would say I'm addicted to Marg! Thank you for your irreplaceable presence on Flickr."

    "Wanted to write this for sometime.
    Lots of Hearts and lots of Tags...A wonderful photographer with an incredible eye on detail. I think she is a kind of a "walking Wikipedia" because most of her pictures and her comments are loaded with tons of information. I always look forward to what she says on my pictures. "Mags, we share the same wavelength this way as I like knowing more about the things and events too."

    Great to have a friend like Mags who instantly agreed to administer my group 9-5 and one who has supported me on Flickr all along. Mags, keep clicking, keep smiling.."

    "Much more than a photographer, mags is a plethora of information about art, music, family, you name it. In Flickr we 'meet' many people through pictures and comments, but few become real friends. I consider mags a dear friend.
    Look through her photos and plan to stay a while, you won't want to leave."
