8 Inspiring Photographers On Flickr

I’m feeling very visual today and not in the mood to write… I’m more interested in allowing my eyes to wander vs. typing. Perhaps you feel the same way after a long activity-filled holiday weekend? (As a little by the way: it flew for me and was extremely busy, you too? But I got to meet fellow blogger Nichole from Little Brown Pen and her husband and kids which was a highlight! She wrote about her visit to my home here.) So! How about we play a little game of show and tell? I’ll share 8 Flickr photographers who never cease to inspire me and you can do the same – though it doesn’t have to be 8 of course. Just name drop a few by chiming in below. Perhaps you can introduce me and your fellow readers to those on your radar — I love finding new and exciting work to bookmark.

    I’ve been keeping my eye on Tartlette and Shana Rae for a while now, absolute love their styles of photography.

    Another wonderful photographer with her distinct style is Kristybee, you can see one of her shots that I can’t stop coming back to. It’s the light and the colours that just sends me into a daydreaming state!

    What a lovely surprise to check in on your blog on see my friend’s face featured in one of your Flickr faves. The three lovelies in the Skippy Designs photo are sisters, and the photo was taken by the sister on the left. Her sister, Charla, (on the right) is my dear friend. I called yesterday to tell her that I saw her photo on your blog. I’m delighted.

    Here is another amazingly talented sister’s flickr page too…
