Special. Get yours at bighugelabs.com/flickr

 

Note: Unfortunately I'm very slow to respond to flickr mail these days, and have been for the last few years. If you require a prompt reply you would be better off emailing me at sporkgirl at gmail.com. You may want to put regarding flickr somewhere in the subject line or I'm not liable to read it.

 

Photo uploads are few and far between these days but I'll be back in full force sooner or later. I promise.

It is not too much to say that my eyes are changed by Special.

Special first got my attention with THE BEST ICON EVER, and I wasn't dissapointed when I clicked through and found that she was able to back it up with creative and compelling photos. I really appreciate the thought that she puts into her work.

The artist has two roles with respect to visual media: (1) To perceive and see beauty in a unique way, and (2) To capture that way of seeing so that other people can also see it clearly and effectively. Special absolutely EXCELS at both. That's why I keep coming back to her photos every single day, and that's why sh… Read more

The artist has two roles with respect to visual media: (1) To perceive and see beauty in a unique way, and (2) To capture that way of seeing so that other people can also see it clearly and effectively. Special absolutely EXCELS at both. That's why I keep coming back to her photos every single day, and that's why she's one of the flickr members I have the deepest, most serious respect for as an artist.

Who other than Special could get away with calling herself "Special"! She can for so many reasons ~ She's got wonderful ironic sensibility, she's a fabulous flickr citizen, defending what's good, true and right (and me!) even if (maybe especially) she gets flack, she's generous with her encouragement and praise and her… Read more

Who other than Special could get away with calling herself "Special"! She can for so many reasons ~ She's got wonderful ironic sensibility, she's a fabulous flickr citizen, defending what's good, true and right (and me!) even if (maybe especially) she gets flack, she's generous with her encouragement and praise and her photos, they *are* truly Special. She makes me wanna go to make a pilgramage to Kemp, Texas to touch the holy "sexyredwall" and to get a look at her fa real and maybe I could pass my hands over that guitar. Her southern gothic eye for decay brought my passion for the decayed and junked out of my mental storage bin and through my lens, for which I'm deeply grateful. Special for Queen 08' (see fubuki's testimonial from me re: good cop, bad cop). I'd live under either of their rule but Special would do a particularly great job at the office of Flickrland Security! ; }

I love Special photos. It's one of that persons that have the "vision" in the right place and in the right time. Her photos are simple but behind each one there's a story and the way Special capture it, make the dference.

Special is special. She seems to go out of her way to comment much more than she should, and takes beutiful shots in her own style, with what looks like a much simpler camera than anyone else in the small group of photographers as esteemed as her on Flickr.

Special takes awesome pictures, and has a preternatural sense of color and texture use. Plus she's from Texas. Having been born in Killeen, I feel a special attachment to her small town Texas shots and appreciate the beauty she brings to them. Plus she apparently curses a blue streak, which every good Texas girl should… Read more

It's just as fascinating to watch her in action (photographing) as it is to view the outcome later in her stream. It's really fun to model for her too. I have learned a lot from her.

Special does amazing work. It's funny, but I can tell her photos without ever looking at the name below them.

Special does amazing work. It's funny, but I can tell her photos without ever looking at the name below them. She has an incredible style and in the short time that I've been following her work, I've noticed her already good quality turn into something outstanding. Always quick to give a compliment and encouragement, she's helped me realize that I can actually enjoy the things I shoot. Her pictures are amazing and I think her titles and notes on her work show that she has a great sense of humor as well. Keep posting the pictures and I'll keep tuning in. Great work!

Special was one of the first people to comment on my photos after joining Flickr, and I've been following her work ever since. In that time she's gone from a good photographer to a damn fine photographer. Portraits, urban decay, rain-soaked flowers...an amazing collection of beautiful shots.

I hold Special in high esteem. I embarassed myself when i figured out how many times (a day) I look to see if she has posted - I wont tell you.

I hold Special in high esteem. I embarassed myself when i figured out how many times (a day) I look to see if she has posted - I wont tell you. To me, her photos are Last Picture Show meets Rocky Horror Picture Show; and i love em. Special is my valued confidant on matters of navigating the shoals of Flickrstan. I take her opinions and judgements seriously. Special is my friend - whether a midnight gmail about her shooting adventures or a perceptive critique on my work, I value her friendship sincerely. and did i say that girl can shoot! and i will elbow folks outta the way to get in one of her groups... they make me think better about what i am shooting and why. Special 08'! cheers

Whether she's creating a new tag, giving fruitful feedback or capturing amazing combination of shapes and colours doesn't make any difference: Special knows how to bring the beauty out of anything crossing her path.

Special's photos are a doorway into another world, the kind you dress up and bring a date to visit. Lovely!

Special always amazes me. I have been stalking her for years. One of these days she'll slap a restraining order on me.

K is an amazing person and a wonderful friend. She makes the web fun. One of the only reasons I bother to venture onto the internet these days.
