Why no Pictures?!?
Jean M. Ollivier28-Jul-2016 02:40
Qu'es-tu devenue Marie-Hélène ?
C.Y.Leow 19-Aug-2009 13:53
Hello my favourite critique! I am so happy to find you again! Looking at your shots of the doors, I am speechless! Pardon me if I quote what you commented on my picture “The Cloud”, nearly five years ago!
"Superb pastel colours, Marie!
A minimalist composition, with simple lines, whose interest lies in the gradual range of tones. I like the Japanese-like simplicity here!"
They are superb collection of simple but beautiful images!
LOL, see; try as I might I just FAILED to write like you! ☺
Take care – kind regards - CY

Bonjour, mon amie.
It has been a while when I visited your galleries from front page.
And it was a pleasure to see, how simple and tasteful you rearranged and combined by themes your sunny and emotional photography. Sure you had a great fun moving things around with wonderful creativity in arrangements and titles. And I spend a great morning looking at your pictures.
Guest 19-Feb-2006 01:46
Bonjour Marie-Hélène. Merci pour ton passage "chez-moi". Moi aussi, je n'ai fait qu'effleurer tes galeries. J'aime bien ton travail original et raffiné. C'est très inspirant. Je reviendrai!
Guest 16-Feb-2006 18:01
On peut certes parler de techniques, de cadrages, de... ou dire tout simplement: c'est beau et ça fait du bien.
Fabienne27-Jan-2006 22:53

Thank you for the encouraging comments on my pictures. You were my first favorite artist on pbase and it was through your galleries that I found Inti another of my favorites.

When I need to escape from the world's problems I visit your galleries, and also those of fabienne and mardoli. The beauty found in your galleries is the medicine for my stress. Thank you so much.

Good Morning:
I have your site as one of my "Favourites" and almost everyday you post new photos. How do you find the time to take all these great pictures of La Belle Provence?
Guest 25-May-2004 09:13
"MERCI" for your kind comments. I envy you for living in is one of the most beautiful places I have visited. Although more than 20 years ago, I still have vivid images of it's beauty. Through your photos I am rediscovering Provence for a 2nd time.
Selvin Chance15-May-2004 10:14
I guess if you were living in Hawaii you would truly be a night owl like myself. It's midnight here.
Thanks for your insightful comments on the cloud formation.
I climbed onto a neighbour's back porch without asking permission, to take this photo. I was so fascinated by the clouds.

Dan15-May-2004 01:57
Very nice galleries, your images are excellent. Great presentation!
Rob Oele20-Apr-2004 09:54
Bonjour Marie-Helène,

I like to thank you for the extensive comments and also compliments you gave visiting my galleries. This is special for me because you are definitely one of the Pbase members that inspire me as a "learning photographer" to experiment with new viewpoints. Especially my recent gallery "Doors and windows" is an example of this.
Jet Liera20-Apr-2004 04:29
Remercié for visiting my galleries.
I see you're a cat lady, now i know why you liked the picture of the cat so much !!

Thank you for visiting my galleries at pbase. Thank you for your kind words. They mean a lot, especially after seeing the gorgeous images you have on your site. They really are outstanding, soothing, warm, unusual. Every time I visit your gallery, it makes me want to visit Provence. It looks blessed with beauty. Inspiring.

Thank you again for your comments, and looking forward to seeing your site in the future again

All the best from Ray
inti14-Jan-2004 17:27
Marie..I have been involved one way or another in photography since the mid 70's. I have studied the do's and don't, how to create a perfectly acceptable portrait, how to develop B&W, slide, tone present, from real gallery work to competition work of a high standard.
I don't claim to know that much but I have watched the game a lot.
There is one thing that I have never been able to achieve, and IMO, this is true of over 99% of us out here in the photographic world. This is a style that I can call my own. Something that would associate a picture with me.
I think that your work falls into the 1%.
If I see something that looks a certain way..I can almost always associate it with you.
You have a beautiful and original style Marie....
an ability to take any picture and turn it into something that is yours...something that has your name invisibly but most noticably stamped right across it..
One could say that your presentation has a lot to do with this, but anyone who studies your images will see more than that - a very unique perception of things that come before a way that 'you' see it.
Congratulations. This is IMHO really fine and memorable work - & most definitely Yours.
Guest 10-Jan-2004 15:07
Hi Marie

I have visited these galeries a number of times and always get great pleasure from them. I particularly enjoyed the architecture gallery so I have voted for it. I have added you to my favourite artists list and will be returning often for a dose great pictures and warm Provence sunshine. Thankyou for sharing these beautiful pictures.

Paul Teixeira09-Jan-2004 15:47
Very nice pictures, they bring back the warmth and atmosphere of my holidays in the Provence. Keep shooting and sharing! Merci bien!

Best regards,

Thank you Marie for your time in visiting my humble and at present sparce gallery. Your words of encouragement cheer me as well as your self portraits!
I love the new look you've put on your gallery for the New Year also. This must surely be one of the most colourful, professional looking and well tended galleries on PBase.
It's a credit to you...keep up the good work. A hug! - Rob x
Guest 07-Dec-2003 22:01
Je vais me répèter mais tant pis...

J'ai vu dans vos galeries de très belles images souvent pleines de poésie comme les portes et fenêtres ou encore la galerie noir et blanc.

Fréquentant un forum de photo numérique (Megapixel), je vais inciter les autres membres à visiter cette belle provence au travers de vos images.

Bravo à vous (et merci pour le rayon de soleil)
