I picked up my first point & shoot camera in fall '06..., then got serious in early February '07 (by that I mean, I started going for daily photo walks, to get to know my neighbourhood AND the camera, a little better).

March '09 brought me a D60, my first DSLR. (thanks, honey) and it was love at first sight.

Please let me know if you wish to use or blog my photos.

    "If i didn't know Missy, i sure as heck would want to after reading these glowing testimonials! Wow! What a lovely collection, to which i can't add anything new except to say, Missy's photographs speak to me as richly as poetry. Move past my eyes and mind and into my very soul so quickly, i am astounded and delighted with each magical offering. Through Missy, i have come to understand how seeing is poetry, and photographs are poems. And she is one of my very favorite authors. xxoo"

    "To my old-fashioned way of thinking, manipulating photographs has all too often only succeeded in placing a curtain between me and the image. You, Maureen, are so different. When you manipulate your pictures, you add another layer of artistry to them. Your use of words, to complement, and enhance, your magical pictures has been an inspiration to me, encouraging me to try and emulate you. Thank you."

    "my testimonial is more "to you" ... than about you.
    You are a delight, your photos truly show the beautiful soul within.

    lovely hats, smiles with dimples and sparkling blue eyes - your amazing scenery, silly cats that drink from the spigot - Missylicious food shots, amazing photoshop talents, especially your 'Missy cloning' that always brings a smile to my face ... always happy to see new photos from you on my contacts page.
    I feel as if I'm there with you at Kew beach, the wonderful little lifeguard station that your Flickr friends have come to know so well.
    I thank Gr'ma Lex for introducing us.

    Also - your nice comments on my photostream means so much to me.
    So many call you their Canadian sister - and I certainly know why.
    Love ya a bushel 'n a peck, a hug around the neck !
    .`·.¸.·´ and many blessings of Nature"

    "Maureen is one of the most beautiful people I have ever met in my life, not just on flickr. Her generosity, her loving nature, her gentle sensitivity, her vulnerability of heart will touch your very soul if you let it.. She cares about everything and everybody : nature, people, animal, spirituality. She cares about you. All these qualities are reflected in the beauty of the images she captures and the heartfelt words she chooses to express the thoughts and the ideas provoked by her loving attitude toward life.

    Maureen, thank you for beeing my friend
    Love you
