    no apologies for the personal tone of this testamonial. it's a love letter to your work."

    My dear friend, every image of yours is an inspiration and a beautiful poem...please never stop sharing your art with the world!"

    "Lucy's stream is consistently one of the most rewarding and enriching on flickr.

    Her technical and artistic prowess are inherent in her work, and in this respect her photos often lead me to scratch my head and puzzle, "how did she do that?"

    However, as much as I respect, admire and (dare I say it) envy Lucy's obvious talent in these regards, they are not the reasons why I look forward immensely to the next installment in her intriguing stream.

    No, the reason for that is the pure cerebral pleasure of her photography. This transcends equipment, or method, or art and connects with something much more profound. For me Lucy's photos reach out to my desire to see, and to know, and to understand. They are both ambiguous and stunningly obvious in their content and meaning, and they always leave me wanting more. Always."

    "what can be said about lucy? amidst the praise, the wonder and the justified hyberbole, it has probably all been said already.
    for me, lucy's work is important because it has a very rare and very special honesty to it; an emotional direction and certitude that forces the eye to widen, the heart to race, and the brain to flick leaping... as though returning to some long forgotten truth"

    "There's a reason why Lucy has so many testimonials here praising her's true. All of it, every word. She deserves all of this praise and more.
    And the fact that she as nice in person as she is online makes writing this all that much easier.
    You are truly one of a kind Lucy, and your photogrpahs could hang with anyone's."

    "When you look at Lucy's art, you quickly realize there is more than just a photo. It's a visual poem which trys to reach others hearts and minds. Emotion, energy and enthusiasm with a high dose of melancholy are the ingredients which takes the viewer away from reality to a dreamy, philosophical, thoughtfully condition.
    Althogether plus the imaginative, artistic editing gives the viewer a voyeuristic insight in her subtle mind.
    Lucy is charged full of passion and intelligence, with a high number of keen thoughts. You should be warned, her photos will take you into her world and convince you to deal more with the profound content. It's like a philosophic chat about life, and I'm looking forward listening to Lucy in her next visual poetic line."

    "it is really hard to describe Lucy's photos and be fair to her talent.
    Jaw-dropping, thought-provoking, insightful, beautiful, honest, smart and unbelievably creative.
    Every new shot makes one think hard. Every concept sends a message and always hits the target.
    Her work is simply admirable and an inspiration.
    And last but not least, she is a lovely contact.
    In this big massive Flickr world, Lucy is definitely one to remember."

Her images do what and image should do ... exude feeling and atmosphere. Besides her fantastic imagery, Lucy is an unbelievable person. She's always there to comment and shed light on something you may not have noticed. I value her opinion and her kindness.

    Thank you Lucy, for inspiring me."

    "When I first joined flickr, I was struck by the originality, drama and romanticism in Lucy's images. She has a unique ability to get to the essence of an emotion or mood and encapsulate it pure form in her shots. What's even more striking is that she's getting better and better; each of her photographs is a new wonder surpassing her earlier work.

    She is also exceptionally generous and kind with her comments and encouraged. I'm quite grateful to be counted among her contacts."

    I enjoy her thoughtful comments when she visits my stream. Lucy is good company. Actually she is BEST company one could have. I’m happy to meet her at Flickr. I love her variety of work and would recommend seeing her stream. It’s such a pleasure for the eye…please have a look :)"

    "Essentially a romantic, Lucy treats us to photographs of people and the city, artfully symbolising a bigger place. In Lucy’s city, there are babies and flowers and pregnant women and brides and loving couples. There is glamour, sophistication, beauty, charm and many other things to warm the heart. Many pictures tell stories worth much more than a thousand words and the whole stream is infused with a unique, endearing wit. In Lucy’s city, people spend time in gardens of dreams and spaces lit with hope.

    Thank goodness we can go there."

    "I observe her growing for a while already. There is something about her photography which makes me to stop and to FEEL not THINK only.
    the depth and the way how she perceived the world makes me to grow too. she is the most genuine photographer without scraming. she knows where the photography is - in the moment which she extends to the infinity. Some of her photos are burnt on the hard drive of my memory."

Surreal and soulful, her pictures show us glimpses of the universe through the minds eye of a thoughtful, imaginative woman. I truly enjoy losing myself in her photostream, a visual novel of things seen and unseen. I truly value her friendship."

    "One of the very important ingredient to make an great artist is a keen observational sense. Lucy is senstive perceptually, cognitively to notice both the aesthetics and symbolic sense of a photos. Her comment seems to be more special as if she actually spend time to obsorb the language of the photo and express them out. Truely a wonderful flickr friend to have.

    Her work ofcourse, speaks for itself, if you listen carefully. :)"

    "There is a wonderful balance of honesty and complexity in Lucy's images. The casual viewer can see the honesty in her shots of people, villages from around the world, or in her city scapes. For those that want to evaluate them on a deeper level, there is a richness and warmth. Spend at least a few minutes with a couple of her photos and you'll see.

    On top of that, Lucy is generous. Her generosity displays itself in her evaluations of other's images, but it shows up in her own images, as well. Take the time with Lucy's photo stream. It glows."
