Doing some online scouting for an upcoming trip to Annecy France. Found your Annecy images - very impressive!
I may not copy your shots directly, but you have given me a wealth of ideas. Thanks!
Trent Watts02-Jan-2014 01:20
I just noticed your galleries. You have such an intriguing way of capturing everyday objects and commenting on life. As well your mastery of presenting the material with varying backgrounds, colors and fonts is impressive. Keep up the good work.

Marisa! Thank you very much for the Christmas card I got! I'd love to send you a Christmas card but have no address, can you give me your address. I was so happy and surprised!

Hi Marisa!
Love your Pbase side! And your wonderful photos!!
Ismat Asha 14-Oct-2013 21:38
I greatly admire your work which revolves around the countries I love. Having been to Switzerland and Italy many times , your work brings back many pleasant memories.
Do you post process your images and to what extent.
I have the same camera, fz150 and D-lux4 but there is a vast difference between my pictures and your high quality ones.
Please keep up the beautiful, meaningfully work!

Hi Marisa,
Yes, the image of the two "coons" were taken in the wild....
Thanks so very much for your nice comments on my water images as well...
Veronica Fresh22-Aug-2013 23:35
You are an incredible and extremely gifted artist. I enjoyed browsing through your Galleries...too many images to comment on all of them... I am amazed at your creativity.

Yours are probably the most creative and interesting galleries I've seen on pbase. I look forward to returning and returning again to your inspiring work and I thank you for commenting on one of my images from Cuba.

Marisa, I see you are a wizz with Pbase style sheets and I hope you can help me. I want to add a link to Top birding sites in my 'Birds in New Zealand' gallery. They sent me a code to paste into the gallery but I'm not sure how to do this and would appreciate any help you can offer. Thanks and best wishes for a happy 2013. John
Barry Moore01-Jan-2013 01:13
Marisa, your creative photographys and artistry remind me of William Blakes poem ....
To see a world in a grain of sand,
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour.....
.... May the challenges of the new year be good to you. Keep inspriing us all with glorious snapshots of life and the things it has to offer. Kindest regards Barry

I just want to say, again, how much I love your wonderfully creative galleries. They are a high point on PBase as far as I'm concerned. You quote Edward Weston: "Anything that excites me for any reason, I will photograph;not searching for unusual subject matter,
but making the commonplace unusual." Well, you succeed beautifully in making the commonplace unusual. I am inspired by your work.
Best, Christine
George G. Chiodo21-Oct-2012 11:20
Marisa, I have been following you for years on PBase; really and just this morning realized I have never sent you a comment. Your work is outstanding! I visited Italy in 1975 and wish to again return to see more of Europe, but through your photography and stories I feel I am in touch with Europe. Your work is personal and reveals the wonder and everyday beauty in the places you visit and photograph. Thank you for your posts, I have truly enjoyed them and will continue to experience Europe until I can again return.

Marisa:
Well Done! I love that sort of day trip. I was in Switzerland from 1961-64. Basel and Biel were my faborite cities, I think.; Amerideutsch trying to understand Schweizerdeutsch! The Zurich See froze one year.
I enjoyed the old-style architecture, but unfortunately, I was unable to take many photos. Your gallery brought back a lot of memories.

Bratwurst and Weisswurst were my favorites, along with fresh-roasted Chestnuts you could buy from vendor's carts, which were everywhere, iirc. Sergei could have tried the Sausage McMuffin at McDonald's, if he was desperate.
Carl H. Johnson12-Apr-2012 00:34
Marisa, your work simply "OUTSTANDING". I enjoy how time after time, you will take an ordinary image and make it to the most extraordinary piece of art.
Carl
Carlo Ciciriello 12-Feb-2012 18:54
Marisa, yesterday I spent more than 1 hour watching your "winter gallery". I was amazed.
Great photographic work, technically and emotionally. With your pics you´re a real story teller. This makes difference. And gives also inspiration, aslo for someone (like me) that is not exactly a big "winter fan". In fact today I was out fereezing and taking pics aroud Stans. Switzerland is a beautiful country and you´re showing us its better sides. Tanks for sharing your superb work.

Hi Marisa, I enjoy looking at your work. I too love doing photography. It takes me back to 1964 when I had the opportunity to go to Switzerland with my Grandmother during my Summer break from school. There we did many things and I got to meet my cousins, Great Aunts and others. My Grandmother was born and raised there along with 13 siblings. My father was born there as well and then when he was still a baby they migrated to California USA. I which I could connect with my cousin Cecila Roos who would be around 60 years old now.
Jim Coffman26-Nov-2011 23:59

Thanks for visiting my site and your positive comments. Great praise from a source with a talent like yours. Paris is for me the loveliest city I have visited, and always holds beautiful suprises and corners to explore. You interpretation of it is amazing. I visit fairly often, roughly every 2 years, and usually stay about a week before going on to further explorations. Your country is also one of my favorite places, I grew up near the mountains in Canada and always feel at home with huge natural stone walls all around...
norbi15-May-2011 20:09
Thank You Marisa for commenting my photography.
I feel honoured because it comes from You.
Since longer time I am an admirer of Your photography and

In a few words: it is quality "Swiss made".

Hi marisa. just taking a moment to let you know that my teenage grandson, Jesse is starting to take an interest in photography. He started pbase today. I gave him my old canon and got him on pbase. Of course he is just starting out. any comments and help you may give him would be appreciated. He would love getting a comment form Switzerland. Would make his day! Thanks dear friend. He is at pbase.com/nashu2

Your page is a great surprise to me: besides a style of your own, a consistency in the color treatment I find humor, lots of good and refreshing sense of humor. Sorry, Marisa, for my boldness , but this was the last thing I did expect from a Swiss.
I already add you to my favorites, to fully enjoy your pictures and your humor

I just took a visual walk trough your paths and I am amazed with your sensibility to capture not only images but moments as well and then describing it in a very poetic way. Is what you do,poetry with images and words.
Incidentally I love winter, myself.

Hello Marisa,
Love your work here... exceptional photography, a lot of which made me very hungry and / or thirsty for a warm cappuccino or a cold beer... perhaps both at the same time with Giuseppe's pizza! Your use of light, color, exposure, focus, framing and composition are among the best I've seen here so far.

Best wishes,
Mike

Hi Marisa, I am really enjoying your galleries, although I have yet to explore all of them, but I will!! You have an incredibly creative eye and a great talent for photography and also for putting photos together with appropriate, amusing, informative, clever, captions. If I was a fraction as creative as you I'd be content!! Great work. Cheers, Christine

WR Langston 30-Oct-2009 05:05
Very nicely done... interpretational photography. I love "roaming" your landscape. What happened to the music I think I remember playing when certain of your galleries were opened? That was several years ago if memory serves. I enjoyed the matching of music to visuals. At any rate, very nice work.
Tanya 26-Oct-2009 04:53
Your photographs are absolutely beautiful!! And I love Nyon (I was born in Givrins, just up the road). I was researching the Panasonic LX3 when I came across your photos. Thank you for sharing!
Greg Little21-Sep-2009 20:28
Hi Marisa,

Thanks for the nice comment on my last photo. I was home sick with a nasty flu bug and was looking back a some old shots I never posted. ...a lot there I can re-work a bit if there were only enough time!
Flo Hendry17-Sep-2009 23:47
Really enjoyed some of your galleries. Love the animals you find on your travels. Where I am it is often unsafe to let them roam free due to traffic & wildlife. (Illegal for dogs to roam as there are leash laws) You sure know how to edit well. I am so inept at it and rely on my eye to composed, bracketing often. Have tried a few major alterations, and it is pretty obvious as I am not very good. I usually just do a bit of burning & dodging like I did in the darkroom many years ago.

I don't think you have seen any of my galleries.
I think you may love my Windows Gallery, great use of light and composition. Old Ways has some old romantic charm. Would love to have you visit and be sure to leave comments!
Marina Arimany11-Sep-2009 21:41

Hi Marisa,

Thanks for the many nice comments in my Transylvania gallery. Yes, Pbase is not the easiest site to keep track of photographers you like, and its been quite slow as of late. I haven't been that active on this site, but am trying to reconnect again.

Thanks again. Cheers,

Hi Marisa.... Haven't been here in a while and wasn't sure it still existed! Your photos of Diagon Alley is outstanding with composition and colors and the time you took to think out the pic titles.

John Kay03-Jul-2009 08:48
Marisa--what comes through in your work is your great love for life and the world around you. You elevate the world a full notch, making the often commonplace shimmer; and the words you put to the music of your camera, are lyrics, the counterpoint that points us in the direction of Love. You and your work are inseparable. Your work is a symphony that comes from the heart. Every human being on the plant should have a chance to see this. I keep coming back.

This is a great set of galleries because of the breadth and variety as well as the quality of the photos. I especially enjoy the cafe and food shots because of the sheer relaxation and enjoyment they convey. I appreciate visiting Europe through PBase because I am way over here in Arizona. Hope to get back to Europe in 2011.

Hello Marisa

I have spent just a fraction of the time needed to look at all your galleries, every time i open a new one i find that i get drawn in and i pick one picture (or does the picture pick me)that means something to me. It can evoke happy and some sad memories they shout out look at me!!!! You are obviously a very gifted photographer and i will be back looking through your wonderful galleries soon.

Marisa,

I have gone to your galleries and paroused your art work many times. Have even contacted you to tell you how beautiful it is. While browsing again today during lunch, I find myself absolutely enchanted by your photographs. I never use the word enchanted, however that is exactly what your art is. Enchanting, mesmorizing, romantic, poetic. I'm sure the next time I find myself drawn back to your gallieries I will have a few more adjectives for you. Keep them coming!

Most sincerely,

Edgar

Marisa . . . your excellent photography is equaled by your wit and verbal expression. If it 's OK with you, I'd like to "visit" every now and then.
Marcia Rules08-Sep-2008 14:58
Marisa, the rain gallery is some of the most unusual and well-executed thematic bodies of work I've come across! They are beyond artful & I can't find the right words to express the knockout punch they have!!!! I'd LOVE to hear from you in regards to my work, can you take a peek and give me some input? PS....it might rain here today, but----never mind---I can't come close to your work.....marcia :)
Ali in America 04-Sep-2008 03:34
Thank you, Marisa, for sharing your wonderful photos. They take me to forgotten memories and fresh possibilities.

I particularly am moved by your Tired Old Horse and the lovely house on your home page.

I'll visit again!
Rosemarie Kusserow30-Aug-2008 11:34
Hi Marisa, I would like to say that it is every time a plesure for me to stroll through your so beautiful galleries, to watch your so beautiful colored compositions togehter with your thoughts is balm for my soul, you are one of the best artists here on PBase for my taste and you could be proud, God bless you and yours, kind regards, Rosemarie :o
FotoCat 09-Aug-2008 10:47
I have loved looking through your work this evening. The images indeed have a tranquility about them - I feel the same as RachelJane (comments below). I am inspired and I love the quote about 'experimenting' and getting a new angle. Essentially putting something of yourself in your images. Awesome. Thanks Marisa for sharing. You are in my favourites!
Guest 01-Aug-2008 10:07
Great travel photos. you know you should really make an album in this site:

Ohhh my gosh. Thank you for sharing all of this. I don't know where to start! I think I'm going to spend the rest of my life in your galleries. :)
Possiel12-Jul-2008 05:34
I think your work is an inspiration to many. I'll be sure to come back for more.
RachelJane29-Jun-2008 21:43
I was trying to figure out today, what it felt like to see your images. They evoke something so strong and personal in me. I couldn't quite put my finger on it, in the past. But today, as I marvelled at your work. This impossibly beautiful and pefect flawless work. An artists dream and endeavors to capture what real beauty is. And I figured it out; I realised that your work, which I literally want to step into, viewing it on a screen is no where near enough. I want to be "part" of your images. And it came to me; they tell a story, one of fairytales and happy endings. In your images, you have created the world I wish I could step into, and live within. I want to live the life of your pictures, because life then, would be, truely wonderful.
You have a gift few posess Marisa.
Beautiful and outstanding work xxx

Marisa... I have been away too long, so I hope you will excuse my plethora of comments! I have just spent almost a day of great pleasure wandering through your galleries. They just get better & better. I never forget you introduced me to Pbase and were the inspiration to try a digital camera and have a go myself. Hope all is well with you & yours, and that Sergey is enjoying Switzerland.

You have combined two things I hold dear to me. Bicycles and art photography have been melded into one inspiration. Wow! I'll do both with greater pride after seeing your work.
I own a bicycle hearse, come to Colorado and see.

I want to thank you for your comments on my galleries Marisa. I have so enjoyed you galleries over the last couple of years that I have been a PBase supporter. Your work is photo art at its' best, there is a uniqueness about your photography that is so fresh and creative. Your personal touch with poems, music, and links only adds to the quality of you and your photo work. Again, thank you for noticing my work. I'll be back often for another shot of inspiration, best always. Sherwood
Ron31-Jan-2008 03:07
Dear Marissa, you were correct about my gallery and some of the photos being sideways. I am still working on this gallery. The photos are all straight now, but not in the correct order (soon I hope). Thanks for the reminder and stop back soon.
Popko van Meekeren28-Jan-2008 22:09
Your photos are absolutely brilliant. So many different styles and with an unbelievable lot of creativity. Sometimes you see photos and think: this gives a lot of new inspirition for photography. This is what might be the result of looking at yours. I'll be back sooner or later!!
Guest 28-Jan-2008 08:02
Marisa, your photographs are incredible and probably the best on pbase. The vibrant colours make them stand out and the subjects unusual and creative. It would be great to see some of your processes to achieve these spectacular outcomes. Great stuff keep it up. They are a pleasure to view. AntRn
Guest 25-Jan-2008 03:09
You are gifted indeed! I absolutely enjoyed venturing through your galleries and, by far, you are creative, individualistic, multi-talented, and beautiful. Wow! Keep up the fabulous work and I'll be back to visit often. :)

Guest 11-Jan-2008 05:05
Many people should understand better what is the photography simply watching your pictures. You have the third eye, the third eye is not the latest model of digital camera and when we understand this ...

Merci de votre visite et de vos commentaires, vos galeries de qualité sont d'une grande richesse et je reviendrai régulièrement les visiter, à bientôt...

windybaer05-Jan-2008 08:35
I have found a new "love". Your photographs are inspirational, at the very least. I could never equal the approbation of your admirers, I can only second the motion! God bless your insight and articulation of it.

Best Wishes, Walter
Joel12-Nov-2007 20:09
Hi Marisa,
I could go into each of galleries (which I still may do) and express my compliments, but I thought I would start in your guest book. I just love your artisitc style - it is definitely unique and never dull. The thing I appreciate most about your work is that your galleries are fun - the small stories and creative banners add to the effect. I lied. the thing I like most is that fact you keep your galleries fresh with new content on a consistent basis.
Thanks so much for sharing your art with everyone. I look forward to seeing much more from you.
Joel.
Stefan10-Nov-2007 13:02
Your photography is breath taking. I have been working with digital images since the early '80s and I don't recall any more striking use of the media whether it is digital or film. I am bookmarking this gallery site and will return again and again. Thanks for showcasing what is possible with a creative mind.
A fan,
Stefan
Alain Lestrade05-Nov-2007 19:37
I felt in love and am already jealous... You have superior skills for telling stories inside any of your images, it's what I look for, during any of these blasted days....

Hi Marisa

I have to say, your gallery is the best , at least one of the best 10 on Pbase.
I visit your gallery last week, and all of suddenly I was shocked, and later decided to apply a account on pbase to present my works.

your galleries are telling many stories about your true life, this is the part I like most.

you are welcome to my galleries, though they are kind of small.

All the Bests, looking forwords for more good shots from your camera.

Brilliant, gentle and gorgeous. Thanks for sharing your world.
Guest 10-Nov-2006 15:38
Marisa, I find your galleries so intrigueing. I tip toe in from time to time and steal away unnoticed except for the number I leave in the hit count for fear of being taken as one who is illiciting a return response. Occasionally I'm compelled to leave a comment on one, out of so many remarkable images that speak to me, almost as a gift left by the borrower of the guest cottage leaves for the lender. Last night it felt like I was visiting a rich aunt and rummaging through the attic, finding treasures. John S.
Guest 01-Nov-2006 12:39
Stunning - Simply stunning. What type of post processing do you employ to get that spectacular color saturation?
Guest 26-Oct-2006 06:56
I'm very impressive. Your compositions, subjects (Paris my town), the colors.....nice, very pictures....congratulation

Guest 08-Oct-2006 14:44
Marisa,
Again, thank you for sharing . . . your creativity is truly magnificent, digital delight with space for thought. You have a great eye for the beautiful surroundings. Viewing your work is so very enjoyable. The mansion with the gardens in front and the dark clouds hanging over . . Could it be "War and Peace" ? or the worlds constant battle between good and evil? I don't know, but it makes me think.
Best Regards,

Hi Marisa,
Thanks so much for your nice comments. I've only recently discovered your inspiring galleries (only recently started taking all this seriously) and there is clearly much beauty to see and feel and take in. It's as if you bring the inner illumination of things to life... and to the eye of the viewer.
Best,
Stephen
Agostino Faggiotto18-Sep-2006 14:29
Ciao Marisa,
I have enjoyed your collection of pictures very much. It seems that you like to convey a dreamy sort of atmosphere in many of your images by adding some glow effect and changing color saturation. The final result is quite appealing and it gets close to the emotions you get from black and white pictures. Chapeau! Agostino
Guest 16-Sep-2006 00:26
My eyes thank you, my emotions truly thank you for your calming artistry and my heart thanks you for your uncanny ability of allowing me to love just a little more the beautiful world we live in (most of the time). Your work is truly inspirational!

We had the pleasure of visiting Switzerland last year (Zurich and Ripperswil) and your excellent galleries were a reminder of the delighful scenery around the lakes. I enjoyed the surprise of the music amongst your collection.
Clarke & Emi05-Aug-2006 15:57
Thanks Marisa for your kind words in our galleries. Your galleries are all great, I will have to check out more when we have time.
About my e-mono gallery, well, there are 4 pages, pictures in the first 2 pages were mostly taken in London, and the last 2 pages were taken in Hong Kong. But soon, I will have more images of London, but less of Hong Kong. As I am going to be with Clarke in London soon.

Best,
Emi

Marisa ... greetings from Kentucky. I REALLY admire your work and would appreciate it if, when you have the time, if you could take a look at some of my galleries (new ones since last you visited) and give me some constructive criticism and/or suggestions ( ... like sell my camera and take up gardening). I think I could learn a lot from any comments you might offer. Thanx, Tom
Guest 10-Jul-2006 03:04
Hi, Marisa! Congratulations! You are the most popular photographer! And thanks for showing them!

Ciao Marisa!
Grazie per il commento e grazie anche per il consiglio, che da un'artista come
te è ben accetto. Comunque è un po difficile non ripetersi con un soggetto così,
magari si possono inserire meno foto!
A presto....Lorenzo.

your images exemplify what is possible from a compact digital camera. i'm sitting here looking at my big back of stuff i could not live without and every time i look at your images i question myself.
great, great work. very creative, artistic, emotive. always looks forward to your posts.
Phil. 23-Jun-2006 00:55
Tant de talent me fait hésiter d'essayer de prendre des photos. J'aime cette gallerie, comme celle de Colmar. Étant bilingue, j'ai trouvé très bonne l'idée de traduire en anglais les titres.De plus, ayant habité à Annecy pendant 7 ans, je me sens encore voisin de vous.

Félicitations d'un admirateur jaloux de votre talent.

Philippe Montréal.

Continuez quand même, hein?
Wayne Jacobsen16-Jun-2006 19:50
There is a thread on DP Review concering your work, so you are probably getting zillions of hits. I like your gallaries a lot. You've obviously put a lot of effort into turning your vision into something enjoyable for viewers.
Patrick Bold16-Jun-2006 11:10
By far one of the most enjoyable galleries on PBase. Excellent presentation and very varied creative subject matter. Your photos inspire me to try new techniques and compositions. Thanks for sharing your superb work.

Marc Weinberg 14-Jun-2006 19:50
Marisa, I participate on the Canon EOS 30D/20D, etc., forum on dpreview.com, and one of the folks there noted how wonderful your galleries are. Indeed, they are wonderful. You have a gifted and wonderful eye. If you aren't a "pro," you should be. I have been shooting since 1959, and recently turned "pro," and think I can recognize a pro when I see him/her. Keep up the great work. If you get a chance, please take a look at my weird auto pictures at www.weatheredwondersphotography.com. I would be extremely interested in your thoughts. Thanks for sharing your wonderful gift. Marc Weinberg

Marisa: Your use of light is an educational experience for all of us. You have captured the humanity in all of us and our cultures. A very light and delightful trip through your images. I look forward to seeing more.
reflectedlight14-Jun-2006 14:50
Marisa: Your work is beyond reproach. An amazing photographic artist. Classic photographs that rival the best I have ever seen, with the visual result that compare to the most renowned artists of all time, IMHO. Your ability to see the final result, which is evident in both your choice of subject matter and your composition of the actual shot itself is just awe-inspiring. Your post-production skills and how you take the photo and the viewer to a world beyond this reality we live in, are just amazing. Amazing. You have inspired me to look at MY world in a different light and to attempt to better see the beauty that exists in both nature, and the sometimes mundane creations of man. By finding your beautiful photographic creations, I now feel a renewed excitement and passion for my favorite hobby. Thank you so much for sharing these wonderful photographs with those of us that visit pbase. I think I finally "see the light"...

Marisa ... your photos, layout and sensitivity is SUPERB. As a new Pbaser, yours is one of the most beautiful galleries I've seen as yet.

One question I have of you concerns how you create your style sheets ... what looks like a matte with the photo above it with a drop shadow. Dynamite !!! Could you tell me where I might go to create something similar?
Emi 02-Jun-2006 17:51
Cool flaming! Makes the pictures alive. :)
Guest 30-May-2006 07:23
Your work is amazingly perfect in composition, balance, it's without flaws. What particularly strikes me, is how every element is so perfectly exposed, both buildings/landscape and the sky. I deeply appreciate your galleries.

Dear Marisa,
I an new to Pbase and recently discovered your work. What a blessing to have found it. Your work is a stream of sunshine to me. I love your Cafe Cosiness photos. I think they are spectacular and brilliant. You are a fantastic photographer. A real professional, I am sure. I want to thank you for sharing these photos. I wonder if you could let me know what software you use to create those fantastic frames in Cafe Cosiness? I am also interested in knowing if you use a full size of mini tripod and what is the secret to those colors, warmth and brilliance all in one photo? Is it in the shooting (Raw files, technique, etc.), or in the post photo work with software? If you could let me know I would forever be most grateful. Again, thank you for sharing your work, brilliance and vision. May God Continue to Bless you with such beautiful creative work. Please keep it up, you are a gift to us all. Sincerely, George Fiad / Miami, FL USA (dfiad@aol.com).
raymond ker25-Apr-2006 20:44
Dear Marisa,
As a newcomer to PBase, I have only recently discovered your beautiful work.
And what a discovery!
You are such a talented photographer.
Your galleries display technical brilliance, originality, creativity, a sparkling intellect and humanity.
But to me your greatest asset is your pithy sense of humour and irony.
Your captions in ".... windowsills" are a blast.
The Pbase community and art lovers the world over are fortunate to have such convenient access to your superb galleries.
We have no doubt that this is only the entree to an even more illustrious photographic career.
So we would like to wish you great success, happiness and self-fulfilment.
May you continue to inspire us far into the future.
I would value the comments and advice of a photographic master like yourself.
Best wishes,
Raymond.

John Carrington 20-Apr-2006 20:46
I thought your bike pix were a meaningful collection. I think your titles are kinda limit the ideas your pictures might have for your viewers. My son moved to toronto with an expensive bike and a cheap lock. Within a week he was shopping for a cheap bike and an expensive lock. He bikes everywhere in the city, braving the aggressive mania of cab drivers and commuters who claim the road like schoolyard bullies. Understanding my son's determination and the culture of bike riders that he belongs to, I found your pix quite expressive.
natalitsa18-Apr-2006 13:18
Hello Marisa,
Thanks for your kind email to me, I am fascinating for your work in your galleries, I think you have a lot of new ideas showed in every shot you got.

I stumbled across the wisteria photos on just a random search during my first visit to PBase. Amazing! And then I found the Coffee Shops. Wow! You should consider making a line of art posters on these shops. They were so well photographed and so nicely "matted" that I just had to say stop and say something. Thanks for posting them.
Alex Fabros 30-Dec-2005 21:24
What a wonderful collection of reflections of your eye! The next time I am in Paris I will look at the city with a different perspective. The little shops. People walking by. The hidden magic available through the eye of imagination! You have captured it all. Thank you for sharing.

Gruetzi, Marisa, I like your photos of Stein Am Rhein it is truly a lovely place. My family and I go to Switzerland every summer for 4 to 5 weeks. We usually stay in Steckborn. We love it there we are so sad when we have to come home ( U.S. ) I recently had a gallery opening where I displayed some shots of Switzerland. Go to www.ramseyrailsback.com and you can see them. Take care.

Thank you Marisa for the comments on my tango photo. It’s an honor to receive a comment like this from a photographer like you. It might sound not very humble but I agree with your comments. I also felt surrealism and something more when I took the picture and I’m glad that I could keep the feeling in the photo.

I took a very short look at your galleries and I’m speechless. Your works are amazing! I’d like to learn to take photos like that some day. Now I will go back and browse your galleries more thoroughly. Cheers!

YOU WRITE...
"I’d like being able to express something of my emotions and my impressions in a visual way and to share that with all the people, who have time , heart and sensitiveness to walk over the path of fancy with light steps, without taking anything too seriously.
All your comments to my galleries and messages will be welcome and I’ll be glad to answer all."
Marisa

Marisa-- you do a great job at meeting your pbase mission!! i would leave messages on all your photos --- but then they would be meaningless---- continued success!!! and continued passion for your craft!! marijka ---

Marisa - just returned from my lunch break to find your comments on some of my photos and my "Shadow Light and Shade" gallery - what a wonderful surprise! I've admired several of your galleries over the last few weeks, so I'm honoured and flattered that you took the time to view and comment on my photos. Thank you and best wishes, Steve H

Peace,

Probably the most evocative galleries I've seen for some time. It's like Rembrandt being given a camera.

Words fail me ...

Thanks

Yves Rubin16-May-2005 00:08
You have an original set of galleries! I like your work very much, especially the use of Photoshop filters and effects on many of the pictures. The girls with glasses gallery is an original look at portraits.

However, if I may suggest, the excessive use of "wild" frames really distracts the attention of the viewer. Some tend to look quite cheesy... I think your pictures would stand out just by being beautiful pictures, or at least using a very simple frame (and better keep the same of similar one for each gallery).

lorin niculae04-Apr-2005 06:50
Dear Marisa, during the last days I have had a look to your galleries. I am very impressed by the variety of subjects, variety of postprocessing techniques and variety of thoughts and emotions they rised in me.I like especially the way you frame your photos and, by the means of using this paratext, you introduce a necessary lecture key that is helpfull in understanding your work and going through the visual gates you are opening...
A big thank you, it was a delight,
Lorin

Guest 08-Oct-2004 23:12
Marisa,

Thanks again for your welcome to the forum. I've now had further chance to see more of your galleries. Gee. They really are very, very special. I'm still figuring out how to vote for them so more people can see them, but I'm sure I'll find how soon.

Thanks for your great work.

Well Marisa How are you? I have been so busy that tonight is the first time back on the Pbase site for months....
I even had another birthday, ( this month ) and all I can say it is not getting funny or fun anymore.

I just glanced at a couple of your newer images, and of course enjoyed them very much....
We are just going into our wonderfull Fall season here, and I will try and make some images of the areas I travel...and get them posted..

I hope this finds you well and happy,

Your friend in Photography,

Bob Townsend07-Sep-2004 04:06
I really, really, really love your pictures. I really, really, really hate the music. The pictures are bold and colorful and imaginative and the music is tinny and whiney and uninspiring for the most part. I think your pictures can speak or sing, in this case, for themselves without any help.
Guest 06-Sep-2004 14:58
One of the kindest souls on pbase, who works so hard to bring others a bit of levity and happiness through her work. You are the best Marisa and from the looks of things, I'm certainly not the only one that thinks so.
Dave 04-Sep-2004 01:01
Marisa,
You have a real gift for sharing a sense of place. Well done, and please continue!
Kimberly03-Sep-2004 02:50
Marisa,
I can (and often do) spend hours browsing through your beautiful galleries! Your talent as a photographer & graphic artist is second to none! You are very fortunate to live in a place of such beauty, but it takes a skilled eye and imagination to portray it as you do.
How I'd love to sit and watch exactly what it is you do to produce such beautiful and unique pieces.

I look forward to each and every new image you add to Pbase!

Best regards,
Kim

Dear Marisa:
How could I possibly respond to such nice comments regarding my Cornwall gallery. They have made my day. Thank you indeed. I am glad that you enjoyed the pictures of Cornwall. It is a lovely place. My pictures of places I have visited tend to be less technical (besides I don’t have much technical expertise yet!) but more of how they affect me and what they conjure up and if that they also provoke the viewer ‘emotions, memories, feelings, sensations, thoughts…’ as you said, I am pleased.
And as in my earlier message, I always admire your work.
Thank you again.
Mattana
Paul Middleton06-Jul-2004 13:10
You obviously have a wonderful eye for a picture. I have to admit to never having been a fan of frames until I saw your work, now I'll have to rethink! A definite regular return for me.

And I knew I wasn't weird in having a thing about girls in glasses :)
Emmie Gray03-Jul-2004 09:06
Dear Marisa: Thank you for your insight on my small galleries! I, of course, had to spend an afternoon visiting your pretty town, some clouds, and the diving ladybird beetles, not to mention Diagon...ally, and the gate with 'Blackbird'. The music you have chosen seems to suit each image, and I was very moved to hear "Imagine" - I have always thought that should be our International Anthem. So then I was doubly pleased that you liked my few offerings, since you seem to have that "child's eye" view of the world.

Your galleries are an inspiration, and I hope you don't mind if I copy some of your themes - I would like to have a gallery of my family tree also, and I started one for the town I live in. I was touched, and fascinated by your family photos - a nice tribute, and wonderful pictures.

Thanks again,
Andrea (aka "Emmie Gray")

Marisa, sei GENIALE! Passerei ore a guardare le tue gallerie, a scoprirne i dettagli, a lasciarmi coinvolgere dai sentimenti e dalle emozioni che le foto portano con sè. Ogni foto racconta una storia, la musica l'accompagna e le tue parole la rendono magica. La tua arte è affascinante, magica, speciale!
Guest 27-Jun-2004 16:21
Thank you for sharing your beauty, joy and wonderful presentations with all of us. Your images capture feelings, emotion and beauty of all that surrounds you and then you present it with such class asking nothing in return. Surely one of "the" best on pbase, if not the web.

Photoshop is my playground, every image I make is a play with shapes and colors, sometimes they come out like I imagined sometimes they take me by surprise. :-)
Anyway, I´ve looked at your gallerys several times and I always enjoy it. :-)

Hi Marisa, I appreciate the kind words you left in my gallery. It is inspiring, coming from an accomplished photographer like yours.

I have been browsing your galleries for months (on and off) and enjoy it tremendously. Many of your work are not 'commercial' but there is always a little something (hint of emotion) involved. It is this that kept me coming back. May you continue showing us new stuff :)
Guest 25-May-2004 11:01

Hi there,

Very lovely pictures! You've got real interesting topics for photography such as loneliness, and old shops in Paris. I enjoyed them a lot!

I am going to Switzerland in June, and for now have planned to visit Montreux, Vevey, Geneva and Zermatt. I guess you are a Swiss local, aren't you! Would you kindly give me some tips about taking nice pictures in these places? And have I missed out any must-go cities and towns in Switzerland?

Email me if you can. Thanks

When I see something photographic that moves me, I often comment that I wished I had taken that picture (my supreme comment). Your galleries made me smile and instantly I had to let you know that you see things that a lot of people miss. The music enhances the mood and fortunatly I was familiar with most of the recordings. Thanks for sharing.

1st message was a typo i meant "i like the" lol
Guest 01-May-2004 18:43
I the the gallery with the doors. Ur shots are good but i think the framing ur
puting on ur photos really takes away from the image. Im talkin about the photoshop
frames and page curl effects. But ur shots are really good.

Just to let you know I enjoyed your photography (especially the street series and people series) a lot. Reminds at times of Cartier-Bresson and other members of Magnum. Keep posting and shooting!

Marisa,
Your creative reconstruction of the world thru your photographs remind of these lines from Omar Khyyam:

Ah, Love! could you and I with Him conspire
To grasp this sorry Scheme of Things entire,
Would not we shatter it to bits--and then
Re-mould it nearer to the Heart's Desire!

Keep clicking away...

Bonsoir Marisa,

Je veux vous remercier de votre commentaire pour mes photos, comme celles du Vieux-Montréal. J'ai regardé votre site, et c'est super. Chaque photo est spéciale et individuelle. Beaucoup de travail pour chacune. La façon que vous les encadrez, c'est super bien fait et encore je me répète, beaucoup de travail.

Merci encore pour vos encouragements.

Wow, what a wonderfully thought out set of galleries, full of beautiful photos perfectly arranged. The music adds a nice touch also.
Thanks for you kind words for my galleries which are quite crude by comparison.
Great work!

Marisa, Your Galleries are treasures! You are gifted in so many ways, your eye...your heart. I spent some time this evening looking and admiring your work and have bookmarked you so I may come back often. Thank you for displaying a part of our world that I've not seen yet. Beautiful!!! Veronica

Marisa, Thanks for leaving a comment in my galleries. I don't think I would have found yours, otherwise. You have a real talent for those candid photos. You seem able to get a rapport with the subjects very easily. Even the shots that aren't "up close and personal" are quite engaging. I also like the way you treat the background in many of the street shots -- good idea!
Guest 24-Jan-2004 09:01

Your pictures have a wonderfull mood. Reminds me to appreciate Lac léman even more.
R Favre 14-Jan-2004 01:03
These are some great shots. My wife and I spent a few weeks in Nyon a few years ago, and we absolutely love it. The only this was that we stayed at the Beau Rivage, and had to 'hike' up all those stairs to get to the center of town...it wore us out ;-)

Keep posting

Hi. Thanks so much for the nice comments on my meager galleries. I have to tell you that I have thoroughly enjoyed browsing through your's. What a sensory experience it is!!! I don't have the "know how" to put a muscal score to the photos as you have so I'm really impressed!! But most of all I really like the variety of compositions you have here. Very nice! As I may have said before, I also really like your treatment of historic family photos. I've done the same in a series of galleries so I can really say that you've done a wonderful job here. A life changing project, isn't it? I wish you both the best way down there in New Zealand! Daniel.
Anna Yu20-Dec-2003 06:40
