    "Mary-Anne is a beautiful girl-woman with a gifted imagination and a hell
    of a lot of spunk. Willow and I walk with Echo and Mary-Anne sometimes
    as we both share the same neighbourhood! Mary-Anne inspired me to
    get involved with Flickr and has encouraged all of my artistic attempts.
    We are lucky to have her in our community."

    "This lady is a hoot. If you think McNeney's photostream is fun, you should meet the real McNeney article. She is one of the most fun people I've had the pleasure of meeting, and she's absolutely genuine. One hundred percent. And she's purdy too.

    Oh yeah. And she does NOT work for a bank...


    She's nuts. Wonderfully so. And that's why we love her."

    "I was going to write something about diversity, creativity and courageousness, but then found out Mary-Anne is a FoC, which raises her inestimably higher in my general hierarchy of beings. The photos are great, though. Really great. A highly engaging and rewarding stream. I would call it a real page-turner..."

    "I have been following Mary-Anne's photography on Flickr nearly since I joined the community, and I have found her work to be consistently impressive. Not only is she capable of producing beautiful shots, but they possess a refreshing originality that I almost always find interesting. The eloquent writing that is a nice bonus, too."

I love seeing how MaryAnne looks at the world makes me look around and look again,she honestly has made me appreciate little things. I love the self portraits,all the get-ups and fun and she is always willing to share how she did it.. She is an inspiration. Thanks MaryAnne!"

    "Flickr is a wonderful place. But in all its labyrinths I've never found anything like the delight I have felt since discovering McNeney and her wit, wisdom and photographic skill. You just know, looking at her stream, that she's a person you'd love to have as a friend. Kind, eloquent, modest, intelligent, imaginative, creative and talented - and she takes good photos, too.

    McNeney is perhaps my favourite photographer on flickr. So why don't I comment on her photos? Because it seems like chatter, twittering of the sparrows, white noise. McNeney, I'd like to walk up to you and shake your hand, say "thanks," and walk off to let you alone to continue to explore and create your wonderful, imaginative and beautiful world."

    "I am, by all accounts, a Flickr addict. An image junkie. I spend gobs of my time bouncing around from image to image and take delight in the fact that I follow no discernable pattern or logic. Some might even call me a photo-tramp!

    I click on one Flickerite’s link because I liked the comment that they left me, and then I might check out her/his contacts. That might trigger a sudden yearning for knowledge about Monks in Tibet and so on…until…BAMM! I hit McNeney’s latest upload. The onslaught of visual imagery comes to a halt. I am forced to slow down and proceed at her pace, in her way, according to her direction as her words slowly suck me into her world and lead me to wherever she wants me to be.

    I can never look at one of her photos and predict what the words are going to depict. It is always a pleasure to get a glimpse into the wonderful world that is McNeney"

    "Ok. I've hit the delete button on this first line of the testimonial for Mc about 7 times. I'm just going to give up on trying to write something amazingly perceptive about this woman, coz, well, she's just so much better at it!
    to know a flickr contact right from the beginning and to see their photography evolove in such an enviable see her stand out so gracefully from just a blast."

    "I was surfing through the favorites of someone's favorites when I stumbled upon the picture of a cat picking up her briefcase to go to work. As if that graphic weren't enough, there was a story to it, and stories throughout her pics.

    Now I come to McNeney's stream every morning the way I used to pick up the paper."

    "Forever modest and self critical (my photos are.....etc): but beauty and greater appreciation are always in the eye of the beholder:
    This stream is definately worth taking time over: go through the photosets: they have beauty and eccentricity, a unique humour and the stories are always worth a read:"

    "One of the more unique ways to spend time on flickr is to check out what she's up to. Not only for the photos, but responding to her thoughts and skilled words always brings out some thought of mine that laid buried underneath hundreds of workdays. I'm really glad I found her stream, it's really rewarding."

    Ian David Blüm says:

    "If I remember correctly Mary-Anne was one of my very first Flickr contacts. I stumbled upon her fantastic body of work while reading the comment that she had left on someones photo I had found through interestingness. I have had the priviledge of watching her grow as a photographer, sometimes in tiny steps, sometimes in leaps and bounds. It seems that we resonate on the same basic level,and our tastes are very similar. Everytime I find an new style of photography to try she beats me to it by a week or two. Everytime I find a new favourite photographer, she's already left dozens of comments on their best work. As for her own work, all I can say is this. Once she puts her mind to something, a new technique or a new style, it does not take her long to master it. Whether through shear persistence or just an innate ability Mary-Anne consistently produces some of my favourite images on Flickr, bar none."

    "Mary-Anne’s work is great for me. I love the other-worldliness and the subject matter that is often vague and magical. Her whole style is very distinct and yet wide ranging from a very 50s sci-fi feel in the subtley threatening imagery of the Autophilia set to the haunting, spacious beauty of the 'In the Dark' series. An often unsettling yet inspirational and very beautiful stream, one that I will be sure to visit frequently. I'm looking foward to seeing more from her unique viewpoint."
