Welcome to the world of my humble photographs! It's a pleasure to have you here. I have a real job but photography takes center stage when I'm out of the workplace. I only wish I'm allowed to take my camera with me wherever I go, even at work.

I love to go on early Sunday morning photo shootouts and expeditions. For me it's the best time to capture the sun's golden glow as it begins to soak a prism of colors into my subject.

    "Zeetz, is just one of the most remarkable and nicest person on flickr specially on PK. Her generous, insightful comments are very inspiring and makes you strive better to hone your craft. Her images are simply adorable and at the same time very informative with her fyi's, how to do's and snippets about the subject. it's a fun and learning experience most specially her recipes she shares with pictures like taken from the menu's of top restaurants. It's a gastronomical visual feast. Make sure when you visit her stream that your stomach is full otherwise it will be growling and howling like it was your last meal. I salute you, my friend. You're simply a wonderful artist."

    "I first met ZJ twenty-five months ago. My second friend when I was new to Flickr. The first foto I faved on Flickr was from ZJ, THE POLICE in concert. ZJ uploaded the foto on June 21, 2007 and I faved it August 6, 2007. Never left any comments, just faved it cuz I like the band.

    ZJ has great talent in photography and cooking as well. So many of her works I look up to. Many of her presentations are unique, from gifts to vegetables, from the beach to the kitchen and everyday life we see. I can never stop viewing her photostream, although once in awhile I scan through it, but I always come back and leave a comment or say hi. She has given me tips and asked her tons questions when I first started Flickr and she always answers me back. Thanks for the friendship my fellow Scorpio. Your awesome."

    imago2007 (BUSY) says:

    "Zeetz is the best friend you hope you would always have. She is the chef you wish you would someday find in your kitchen whipping up your favorite dish. She is the photographer you long to shoot with because of her infectious laughter and her uniquely creative view of the world. In Flickrdom, Zeetz is the breath of fresh air you would want to wake up to each morning because it would guarantee you a smile and maybe a chuckle or two. When it seems like everybody else is getting too serious with their photography (myself included), she will post an image of a t-shirt, or grilled salmon fillets, or a fixer-upper Victorian bird house. Yet, make no mistake – as a photographer, Zeetz has a way of coaxing beauty out of these simple, everyday things. But such images are not the only things you’ll find on her stream. There are also spectacular landscapes and macro shots – to me they are icing on a cake.

    I feel blessed to have met this wonder of a lady, not only in cyberspace, but also in person. Zeetz, thank you for your friendship.

    Virginia (California, USA)."

    ""ZJ is one of the most nicest friend I have met here on flickr and I am very glad to have found someone her calibre. She has a very big heart and she's marverlously sweet. She's one of those people in life that you would love to meet in person. Her photos are amazing. It reflects the kind of person that she is. She is such a fine lady with a wonderful personality, and I count myself very lucky to have her as a real fine flickr friend. ZJ, you are amazing and I am extremely Grateful to be able to call you My Friend. Keep on keepin' on Z!

    "Ms Zeetz Jones photos are beautiful, inspiring and they cover almost all aspects of daily life. I find myself coming back to her photo page over and over again. She has a wonderful sense of composition and colour, and the clarity of her images are outstanding. She is a true and talented photographer and that's something to appreciate.
    Zeetz is very thoughtful in her comments and she is so kind to each one of her contacts. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful work! Keep it up my friend.

    "Ms. Zeetz is like an angel who just visited me one day and talked to me through my pictures. I like the wisdom that she puts in, in every comment that she gives (and of course the humor too!). We continue our exchanges from then on.

    I truly admire people who can bring out the beauty even from the littlest things, Ms. Zeetz is just a perfect example. You can see how good-hearted she is just by looking through her colorful and inspiring gallery.

    I haven’t met her yet in person but I feel I already know her for awhile.
    My NFFF (new found flickr friend) in this wonderful community, she helps me tap my interest in photography more. :)

    Thanks for your encouragement and advice Ms. Zeetz. Really appreciate it ‘insan! :-D"

    scattered play says:

    "Not only is Zeetz a hugely talented photographer, she's a wonderfully lithe and humorous writer, kitchen artist, and capturer of her vast and wonderful city: Los Angeles, California.

    Her vibrant take on life and thought-provoking correspondence always takes me to a better day. She has a special talent for capturing the simplicity of everyday things and turning them into beautiful works of art. Zeetz is certainly one of my favorite fellow flickr-ites, one that I look forward to viewing everyday."

    "ms jones' photostream is delicious! be it food or not! plus, she's the best kind of flickr-er in that she willingly accepts my silly comments as humor, and returns the favor. if i knew her any better then this (and i don't), we'd probably be good friends...and i'd invite myself over for meals regularly."

    "Just out of the blue, Ms Jones appear like a ray of sunshine. She's so friendly, you cannot help but be drawn to her flickr friendship web. Even if I haven't met her yet, it seems that I know her for a long time, because I know that if ever I meet her, I'll be right @ home.

    Her photostream is her own story, showing all her treasures in life; family, interests, hobbies, etc. And she's so generous to share it with all of us.

    It's highly unlikely, but not imposible, pero sana ma meet kita in the near future!

    I thank Flickr for a friend like Ms Jones!"

    "Her images serve as tantalizing tidbits for the eyes.

    From adventurous light saber duels, shots of alluring automobiles, and captures of people having fun to amazing pictures of creative cuisine and fruit, her photos not only represent her creative talent, which include all of the above and more, but they also convey her passions for color, composition and people.

    Her photostream offers a small glimpse of her world as family member, chef, and photographer. I am proud to call her a fellow flickr 'partner-in-crime'. LOL!"

    "I was searching for photos about star wars or jedi...and several photos came out...I noticed a photo of the R2D2 mailbox & a photo of Some Filipino's posing as Jedi's with Lightsabers....I wrote a comment on her pics...and then she wrote a comment on my star wars pics...I think that's how our flickr friendship started....all because we are both star wars geeks.
    besides...being a star wars geek like myself...Ms Jones is a cool and delicious photographer.....I say delicious because...a lot of her photos make me hungry... she got nice looking photographs of food! sarap!
    well ...You are a COOL FLICKR FRIEND Ms Jones! hope to see you someday with our other flickr friends!
