This Week's Inspiration.


Jo Quijada Photography: She is my favorite portrait photographer. I like how her photographs are clean, sharp, and well thought out. It is faithful to everything that is real. There is so much gentleness in her photographs, too.

A Tiny Victorian Cottage: How charming is this little house? Shabby chic. I love. See all 16 photographs. Lovely!

Dave Hill: Fantastic photography! Even more fantastic post-processing! I love how he uses noise in his portraits and how he plays with light and shadow. I think CBB will like this and this.

Audrey Kawasaki: If and when I do get inked (I'm planning to get one soon), I want this design. Audrey is very talented. I absolutely love her brand of art.

Mandy Lynne: This is the kind of vintage that I like -- soft and beautiful in its simplicity. Nothing outrageous. Just life... in pastel, sweet colors. Check out her portfolio. Nostalgic.

AI, you are my favorite too! You inspired me to get into photography. Thank you! You don't know what great a gift you've given me!

And you continue to inspire me, with each photograph, with each word you write.

On Audrey Kawasaki: I LOVE HER! I've been trying to buy one of her pieces. Always sold out. And her art exhibits -- I so want to go to one. Sigh.

When someone tells me this, that I inspired them to get into photography, it makes my heart leap with joy.

I am humbled. And grateful.

Continue on. You are very talented.

And oh, I hope one day you could take my portraits. :)

She's awesome, no? I love her, too! Such an amazing artist! I hope one day, you get to own one of her artworks or go to her exhibit. :)

Thank you, Chel. I love to find talented, artistic people and get inspired by them. And Jopie, yes, she's one talented woman. Her photography is beautiful, as beautiful as the heart she keeps.

I'm happy you are inspired by this list. :)

TIRIS, very very true! when we do see each other (i don't know when that is, sigh!), i'm sure wala na'y kiwaw2x! :-)

CHEL, thank you thank you! you are one of those heart-lifters that are rare in this world. thank you for always saying the nicest things. :-)
