I have a license to be weird

A person I love with all my heart and I don’t want to have sex with her. (see previous blog on love if you are confused) Pretty much like a very close sister.

Flickr Wednesday: Thea

Thea is also known on Flickr by the username, Tedje51.

Thea joined Flickr in 2008, a year before I did.

Thea is an excellent example of a mind well served by today’s digital technology.

In her profile, she writes:

I have always loved photography and have made a lot of pictures all my life. Of course, many family and holiday shots and pictures of my children ‘caught in the act’. I also like to look at photos of others.

I’m an observer who can be touched by small things. I love nature. The more life becomes busy the more I love the sound of silence and do I get inspired by nature.

Nevertheless, I love living in the digital age, that gives me the opportunity of experimenting with photography and editing digital images. It also gives me the opportunity to play around and to design my own compositions.

Thea is one of the administrators of my favorite Flickr groups, The Award Tree.

The art in the Award Tree is eclectic, experimental, and always interesting.
