    SeekerakaD@tMan: A.Y.V.of USAF!!! Philosopher says:

    "M&M knew me from TBG. Granted it had it's growing pains. What group doesn't. Mark is one of the few people who still calls me Marvin. Fitting because I used to have a Marvin the martian icon as my avatar for FlickR.

    Over the years, M&M got to know me. Him & NSA (Who can SUCK IT!!!) knows me well. Unlike NSA, Marks has common sense to know the mindset of people. It shows with his portraits.

    Not using K.I.S.S., but a short testimonial won't do justice to M&M. TY for your and this is my draft for yours."

    Mars Observer ♂ says:

    "Mark takes photos of Manna. 'nuff said. That's reason enough to check out their photostream!!

    But in doing so, you'll also notice that Mark is a great portraitist and I'm sure must be a great people-person - he always gets the best from the wide variety of models he works with.

    If you want some eye-candy I highly recommend M&Ms!"

    Just Jonno23. Nothing more. Nothing less. says:

    "I hate Mark&Manna. Well, not Manna. Just Mark.

    I hate his photos, everyone of his witty posts. All of times he has reached out to be an all around great guy to the cool kids on flickr. Basically everything about Mark makes me want to vomit. If Mark were to vomit, it would probably be something amazing, like when a unicorn craps out rainbows (yeah, that's where they come from). Mark is responsible for so many horrible things in this world. Baby seal clubbings? totally his idea. Those sad infomercials about starving kids that Sally Struthers used to do? Mark refused to let those kids eat. Remember the Kony thing that everyone was all upset about and now noone seems to remember? Yeah, me either, but I bet Mark was in on that.

    Dont look at his photos, unless you like having awesome thrown at your eyeballs like a Randy Johnson fastball. It hurts to get hit by one of those. And if you get a print from Mark, it will probably give you a papercut.

    But yeah, he's pretty cool, and I am glad to continue to get to know Mark."

    "My friend Mark is a rare individual in that he Really is as nice as he seems on the interwebz. I have watched him grow not only as a fine photographer but as a father figure in more than a few groups as well as @ home.He was one of the first persons I got to know through Flickr 6 years ago and remains a true friend to this day. We all adore his family and held our breaths while Manna got her papers to come to the U.S., We have watched Ho Ming Grow up and I am proud to say that Mark and his family have come to mean so much, to so many.Thanks Mark for being who you are, a great friend and fellow photographer."

    Feeling Croppy says:

    "I have only recently met Mark, but he has left an indelible impression. In a heated thread, he responded "why be an ass for the sake of being an ass?" and I found that admirable. He doesn't follow the crowd, and he is mostly kind and fair. I also find him quick-witted and hilarious. Photographically speaking, he is quite talented. His portraits of Manna are stunning!"

    dbaniaga...aka: Dude says:

    "Mark is a straight forward no nonsense kind of guy. You get no BS with him but you do get a razor sharp wit. His photography is well tempered with an amazing eye. Unbeknownst to him, Mark is writing a book on portrait photography...he's that good!
    And now for the important part of this testimonial. It makes me very proud to call Mark my friend. He is as human as a human being can be. He's kind hearted and always willing to give advice if needed. In short, Mark is the main pillar of TBG. He is the foundation the rest of us TBG'ers can build on.
    Thank you, Mark, for being there!"

    Memorableness says:

    "Moral or ethical quality: a man of fine, honorable character. This is what the dictionary says about a man of, "Character", and this is who Mark truly is. I've grown to know and trust Mark in the coming up on two years I've known him. He has been a mentor, savior, life-line, and above all a true friend. It's my honor to know him. He is always non-judgmental and his wisdom is often astounding. He is also a very funny chap and a very talented photographer. In a world that is all too often full of B.S. and shallow people he will surprise you with his candor and ability to never give up. There is a life inside of him that is an inspiration to all who know and love him. I am one of them....I love you Mark...*huggs*...."

    Mark is an all-around decent fellow with a big heart and a great sense of humour. Always patient, always there for folks in need... and forever dropping little bits (and big chunks) of wisdom in his wake.
    Mark, you have very much earned my respect and admiration... thanks for being a great friend.

    God bless you and your wonderful family. : )"

He's pretty good at this photography jazz too, I must say, though you must give Manna some credit for those portraits. All round awesome."

He's fun to hang out with and his photography skills are rapidly improving, especially his portraits. They are great! Which is not difficult of course, having such a beautiful woman as Mark has ;-).

    Keep up the good work and thanks for your friendship.

    There's nothing wrong with being crazy if it involves the following: quick wit, razor sharp sarcasm, always kind yet usually very strange words, intelligence beyond compare, heartwarming smiles, good advice when you need it and of course, an excellent eye for photography.
    So if you're adamant about not voting Flikr, vote Mark. You won't be disappointed!"
