As you can see....I'm a bit of a 'Quotes' addict!!

 

I'd describe myself as an 'amateur photo-artist' certainly not a photographer...an eye for a shot...perhaps...but technically challenged!!

64...wife...mother...Grandmother...carer. I like to experiment, hence the Katharine Hepburn quote 'If you obey all the rules, you miss all the fun.'!! I like to play around with textures, PPE, fonts, and enjoy finding quotes to complement images...

 

This is my journey through the years, through the seasons...sometimes going off at a tangent...

 

I've found Flickr to be a great place for sharing, learning, gaining inspiration...and for getting support and encouragement, and I thank my flickr friends and contacts for their part in this :-)

and yes...I still call you contacts and friends....not followers...that just sounds creepy to me!!

  

Please don't be offended if you add me as a contact and I don't reciprocate....too many contacts means not enough time to view and comment on everyone's work...and I do try to catch up with my contacts at least once or twice a week...

 

but...if you add me as a contact and already have several hundred contacts...'fave' all the time without an occasional comment...have no images to show ( why join Flickr if you have no work to show and share🤔this isn't Pinterest!!) or images that make me uncomfortable...I'll be inclined to block you...

  

and ... you all know the drill re © copyright, all rights reserved etc ... so please don't copy or use my images in any way without permission ... thank you

Celebrating Annie's art is a very happy task for me. I've learned much from her about unique style, texturing, and the combination of words and images. When I first got to know Annie, I was most struck with how her choice and placement of font were so significantly part of her artistry. Anyone wanting to excel at textured images and the occasional use of text would do well to study and emulate Annie's style... so that one's own unique style can emerge. Annie is a master ((or maestra!) of less is more when working with a photo. Never is there over-use of texture and never does her use of font predominate. Thank you, Annie! (I'll be using this as a little lesson at www.flickr.com/gr... )...
