    "Rita needs another testimonial like I need a hole in my head!? But without further ado: Rita has an awesome sense of visual humor. (She's pretty witty with words, too.) And she is one of the most gregarious people I know; everywhere she goes she's flashing that smile of hers and making new friends. I love that about her."

    "Smiles, laughs, and seriously good photography. It's all here, in Rita's stream. I tune in here, never sure of what I may find, but always enjoying what she sees. She's a positive force, and not just here, but everywhere. Thanks, Rita. I hope our paths cross someday."

    "There’s nobody sweeter than luverly Rita,

    I wish I could rhyme legs, smile and amazing photographer (and I mean AMAZING PHOTOGRAPHER) but I can’t, so…

    She’s ace, a very warm, kind lady and I like her LOTS – especially as we are cosmically linked for eternity through a series of spooky coincidences involving mothers, names, birthdays, anniversaries…

    It’s actually quite scary. If she wasn’t such a babe it might be worrying but I’ll happily cosmically link with Rita coz there’s nobody sweeter – TADA!!"

    "I'll never forget the day I discovered Flickr and Rita at the same time! Seeing Rita's photographs just blew me away. I was so excited I had to call my partner to express my joy! Pouring through Rita's photostream I was filled with inspiration - I felt as if I had just wandered through a magnificent fine art museum - I was INSPIRED!

    Thank you Rita for the bright light of creativity and soulfulness you bring into the world - not only through your photography, but through your passion for life and with a heart that radiates joy de vivre in all you do. I'm so happy and proud to be able to call "SeenyaRita" my dear sweet friend (:"

    "Seenyreeta - her photos are American however her sensibility is that of an existential Northern European with a sense of humour that never demeans the subject of the image.
    Her photos have that undefinable humanist quality... atmosphere and fondness."

    And coming from a tractor, I believe this is a mighty good compliment.

    Additionally her photos are lovely, and she is taken - where to or from, I don't know, but it must be a good thing."

She's got the most infectious, contagious and beautiful smile on Flickr. You can recognize it from 2,479 miles away!

    I fancy Rita! I fancy her a lot!"

    "There’s a wonderful openness to Rita’s work that I’ve come to admire. She’s got creative, artistic and technical chops to spare, and a portfolio to prove it. But, more than that, she’s able to share a view of the world that is perceptive, upbeat and immediately accessible. Most of the rest of us are merely posting pictures. Rita transcends that, using images to connect with people. It succeeds brilliantly – a big reason why her stream is the closest thing on flickr to a social club!"

    Tampen says:

    "Everyone knows that the virtual personalities you encounter online bear no resemblance to their real human incarnations. Take me for example. I am famed across Flickr as a handsome, debonair, witty Englishman with an extensive family of supermodel wives and daughters. But the truth is, I'm really a spotty 14-year-old delinquent from South Dakota who likes cutting out magazine pictures in my cell at the local juvenile detention centre.

    Where was I ? Oh yes. SeenyaRita's testimonial.

    Reet, on the other hand, is one of those rare personalities who is almost certainly the woman that her pictures (and captions and contributions to Flickrchatter) show her to be. If you read her words and look at her pix she appears beautiful, funny, wise and occasionally orange. The other adjective that springs to mind is "generous". The other other adjective is "genuine".

    I'm convinced that Reet is the Real McCoy. Sorry, I mean the Real SeenyaRita. There's no-one quite like her on Flickr, and if you're lucky enough to attract her notice, you'll feel a lot warmer during those long, cold nights in your juvenile detention centre cell..."

    "Rita is one of those rare gems you come across that causes you to ask yourself: "How did I get so lucky?"
    She's gregarious, hilarious, and sometimes...precarious.
    Her photos burst with colour and convey a sumptious life filled with adventure and boundless enthusiasm.
    I can't wait for her to visit Calgary so I can get her drunk."

    "What Rita has done for me......
    I was first told about "flickr" as a way to see what others were doing with photography, upload some of my photos and get some constructive criticism on my own work.

    Through flickr, I ended up getting more than "comments" made. I ended up seeing not just other people's photos, but also seeing how other people inspired me and were so genuine. People reach out their hand and care.

    Rita was one of those persons. In going through a time in my life that is not only scarry, but darn frightful to say the least......Rita has shown me that you can have courage and keep smiling.

    Just look at her wonderful photos.....she has ZILLIONS of friends and you always see Rita with her trademark smile. How can you not admire this person? She lives.....she lives her life to the fullest. Something that a lot of women are too petrified to try or even know how to do.

    Thank you, Rita, for somehow "popping" onto my flickr screen. Sometimes God puts angels in your path when you need them the most.

    Thank you for being one of those angels.
    Your new flickr friend..... : )

    "I consider Rita a dear friend. We joke. We chat. We gossip about YOU… But, more than anything, Rita is the perfect Flickrer. She’s prolific, and her photos are revelations. And like her, her photography has passion, economy, emotional depth and a lyrical beauty so authentic that it seems to bypass every shopworn standard we've learned to expect from people with cameras… And she’s a total Fox! She is intense, gorgeous, and has a refined eye. She sets a whole new standard, she’s undeniable
    … and she’s my friend."

    "Vibrancy is at the heart of Rita's work and life. With a keen sense of composition, this thoughtful and experienced observer combines intelligent wit with an eye for unexpected juxtapositions that challenge and delight our hearts and minds.

    Her unmistakable style and use of color is what first captures our attention, yet it is the pure and vibrant soul of an artist that resonates with each image and lingers in our thoughts. At the high end of the scale of truthful illumination, Rita's images shine with a vibrant sense of life, discovery and wonder.

    One simple taste of her generous spirit and delightfully satisfying images will whet your appetite for another spoonful of her delicious life. Genuine, original, and refreshingly optimistic, Rita serves up heaping helpings of the world as we wish it could always be. Pull up your chair, and enjoy the feast of your life!"

It's just one unbelievable photo after another. Is there a way to add an entire photostream to my favorites?"

This lady is the real deal, and I am lucky to call her my friend. Her photos are a true reflection of her personality; colorful, warm, bright, amazing, and engaging!"

    "Liz brings colour and the streets of SanFrancisco into my home via the medium of the Flickr every day. Perhaps the only thing without colour in her photos are those teeth of hers that make up one of the biggest and brightest smiles that I've seen.

    Well worth spending the time browsing through her sets. Should be on prescription as an antidote to the duller side of life."

    "Like most people on Flickr, I only know Rita through her photos and words. And what words! All I can say is that if I were able to invite 100 contacts to a Flickr party, she'd be at the top of the list. Her commentary is worth looking forward to.

    Her photography probably falls in the genre of everyday things; but the way she presents them, it's obvious she doesn't live an everyday life.

    She's a sparkle on the jewel of Flickr."
