"Kai is and will always be an instrumental part of my life.
We have a close bond that was formed through flickr, and
have kept it alive by staying in touch outside of it.
Kai and I are communicators. We are able to discuss any topic and
subject under the sun with complete ease and trust. Kai seeks the
truth and resolution to challenges in life.
I consider him one of my best friends and am blessed to have him
in my life. We are best friends forever.
Much love and Aloha from Hawaii,
Moanalani Ke`alohilani Roquette"
10th January, 2010
"The Visions of Kai are the visions of a thousand images that he innately sees and then chooses to share with others. The images speak for themselves, but he is also gifted in adding words and prose that only add more depth to already great and thought provoking "visions". Thank you Kai for sharing!"
24th July, 2009
"Kai is such a kind and generous man and I am so glad to be one of his contacts. His work speaks to us from the heart. Always sincere, empathatic and skillfully done. "Now that's some kind of magic''
A true artist!

Kirsten Storm says:
"Never know what I will see when I open Kai´s site, but of one thing I am quite certain - it will inspire and touch my heart!!! He consistently opens my eyes to the beauty of the earth and his photographs show a deep respect for all of nature and human beings and their emotions. I´m really impressed, because he always finds the right words, lyrics or poems for his pictures. He is a photographic artist!!!
Kai, you are one of my best friends in our flickr family and I´m really proud, that you call me a friend, too! You are very very kind!!!!! I give you a BIG HUG!!!!
It is always a great pleasure to visit your stream!!!!!"

"Sometimes, rarely though a man like Kai comes along, a man who loves people and photography. Kai uses his love of photography to spread friendship,respect, and the true meaning of 'Love Thy Neighbor'
...truly a man for all seasons"
1st March, 2009
"Kai's unique photography style is a great inspiration for me.
He injected his philosophy of life into the photos through some very simple themes and well thought compositions. The images and words in his photostream are embedded with a powerful message of Love.
His comments are always positive and encouraging.
He is a great friend on flickr. Thank you, Kai!"

""Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter." Martin Luther King
Especially as Dr. King's birthday approaches, I am reminded of his unending advocacy for speaking out about being people focused and the importance of relationships. Kai's photostream depicts these values of social justice as powerful images. Kai, thanks for dedicating your images to the things that matter."
18th January, 2009
"Kai is one good, brave, creative and inspiring man. Kai loves people and people love Kai.
Flickr is a good place which gets even better when Kai's around. ;)
17th January, 2009
""Kai is an awesome photographer, and a guy that cares a lot about righting the wrongs of this world. Keep up the good work, and let's hope that together we can make the world a better place! :)""
18th January, 2009
"Kai has been an amazing and inspiring Flickr friend. With his outstanding photography he presents ordinary objects, or combinations of objects in a totally unique, and beautiful way.
His love of people and optimism for the human race shows in his sometimes challenging words. He makes the viewer think, and look at situations in a different light - and often from another point of view to our own. I love his courage when he "goes against the flow", and share his dreams for a happier, fairer world where people respect and help each other, and differences are to be celebrated in friendship - not a cause for suspicion and conflict."

Gemma's Moleskine says:
"...la primera vez que entré en flickr encontré las fotos de Kai...soy afortunada, verdad?...
...sus fotos nos dicen siempre todas las posibilidades de hacer que lo imposible se haga realidad: con las imagenes (que hacen muchas veces contraste entre los personajes de la misma), con las frases que utiliza y con sus palabras....
...muchas veces me ocurrio que él haya posteado la foto con la frase adecuada para hacer que mi día sea mejor, como un ángel que nos envía hermosas palabras desde una ciudad lejana y maravillosa...
....al leer sus palabras nos damos cuenta de lo maravillosos que es tener un amigo como Kai, de lo afortunados que somos...
...gracias por todo el apoyo y los consejos!
...sean bendecidos vos y tu familia hoy y siempre amigo."
26th December, 2008
""Kai is a person who through his lovely personality and his amazing gift of photographing objects, people and scenes that many people would pass over has brought immense pleasure to me personally and to a host of other people who have had the privilege of viewing his work. A lot of thought goes into his photos and this is reflected in the quality and uniqueness of the photos his displays. Not many people have the gift that Kai has and his should be very proud of his achievements.""

Raising Cane says:
"Kai, I know that I can always count on you to brighting my day! Especially on the days that are challenging for me.. You ALWAYS bring the sun to my world, a smile to my face and your inspirational messages and awesome images speak loudly to me... Thank you.. You have really helped me through some really cloudy days..."
2nd December, 2008
"I have got to know Kai about 8 months ago. I had seen his capture of an amazing cloud formation above the Empire State Building in the Interestingness archives. I commented that it seemed like the building was emitting energy, and received a flickrmail soon after from Kai that he also had noticed that and that I was the first to mention that. From that time on I have been following the work of Kai; his amazing captures of daily life in NYC with his valuable reflections. Each time it makes you think. Each time you wonder what the next posting will look like. Each time you are surprised. Kai, thank you for the good work!"
25th November, 2008
"Some people have that extraordinary ability to find connections,
to be able to build bridges, not walls. And Kai is one of those
people. His visions are full of love and show us the positive,
the good, the creative. He is a beautiful soul and I am honored
to call him my friend on Flickr."
25th November, 2008
"If you like the combination of originality and outstanding photography, Kai is your man. His ability to always bring a message with his work is refreshing and an enrichment to Flickr. Go see his shots, you'll enjoy!"

juntos ( MOSTLY OFF) says:
"To me Kai is a person full of love and kindness .. his photos bare his soul and he shows us his view of the world .. great photographer as well as a good friend .. I am lucky that we met on flickr and wish him all the best ... to visit his stream fills one up with optimism ."
6th November, 2008
"Kai is an special guy, with an special vision and special words. Yes, everything about this guy is special. Take a good look on his stream and you can see what I'm talking about.
Keep doing your exquisite work, Kai. Keep speaking the WORD, go ahead."
3rd November, 2008
Trish Mayo says:
"Kai is one of the best photographers on flickr. Not only are his photos gorgeous but he takes the time to match them up with quotes and thoughts for the day. His work is inspirational, thought-provoking and over whelmingly positive. Take the time to look, think and comment on his photos."
23rd September, 2008
unlimited inspirations says:
"The Visions of Kai, is all about love and life.
Love- share, unconditional.
Life- positive, energetic.
Kai is a very inspirational photographer, I believe he is highly positive in mind. Kai's photos are not showing you the specific photography skills, or showing you a tourist attraction, so what is the magic of Kai?
He is taking different perspectives to look at the world, every photo has a unique thinking and attitude, Kai's poems are always emotional and touching, and this is the magic that draws yourself go back to your heart, to you soul, and "The visions of Kai" is always a 24-hours open platform for you to share your happiness or thoughts.
If there is one photo or one word that can call for your soul or spirit, this must be "The visions of Kai".
I am so honour to be one your friends in the world@"
14th September, 2008
"Kai is one of the nicest guys on flickr. His images can be beautiful, they can be dramatic and they can be challenging - but they are never dull.
All strength to you Kai!"
28th August, 2008
"Kai is one of the most spiritual, giving, loving and thoughtful person here in flickrland!! His photos always speak to his love of people, life and God and allows us to witness this beauty. He always has an encouraging word and a great sense of humor! You will give yourself undeniable pleasure when you view his magnificent photostream. Many blessings to you, Kai! I am honored to be one of your friends :)"

Kathleen Tyler Conklin says:
"I am shy about writing a testimonial about Kai because it could never measure up to my opinion of him and his work. First of all, he is an inspiring photographer, as he points his lens with such a discerning and artistic eye. The treatments that he uses on his photos always enhance them to the point where I often gasp when I see them!
Secondly, he is such a good hearted person, who puts into words so much of how I feel but cannot voice. His quotes and own words always inspire. I feel so lucky to have encountered him on my journey through flickr!"
15th August, 2008
"The first thing you learn about Kai is that he is a truly kind and caring person and your lucky to have him as a friend. And by the way, he is an amazing photographer who can capture candid shots full of emotion and meaning. He almost always includes quotes or his own thoughts which really make you think about his photographs. His love for life comes through in his photography. Kai is always upbeat and friendly. When you visit his photostream, you don't just view his photos, you have a great experience. If you enjoy city photography, candid shots, interesting facts and thought provoking commentary then do not miss The Visions of Kai's photostream!"
9th August, 2008
"Kai is one of the nicest people on flickr and can be described as a “gentleman”.
He is always thoughtful with his kind comments and encouragement.
His passion for photography is reflected in his excellent composition and attention to detail.
Thank you for your support Kai and keep up the excellent work.
5th August, 2008
Daniel Niño says:
"Kai can be defined in two main words:
ARTIST and NICE
He's not only one of the most sensitive and communicative photographers I've seen on Flickr, but also he's a very very good guy, modest and if he can help you with somethig, he will do.
So that's not only the great photographer, but the person behind the camera who deserves all respect and admiration.
See you Bro!!"

"Of anybody that I know, and of all the photos that I see on Flickr,
Kai is at a level that goes deeper than most photographers.
All heart... All soul... in search of the meaning of life."
27th April, 2008
"C'est aujourd'hui que je prend le temps de dire à Kai comment je l'aime et apprécie sa vision du monde. Chacune de ses photos est un poème, une chanson, un discours sur la vie, qui nous oblige à nous arrêter et à prendre le temps... prendre le temps présent surtout!!! Aujourd'hui, est toujours le plus beau jour....Merci Kai!"

Jimmy - home now says:
"Kai is a wonderful photographer who constantly seeks deeper meaning in daily things we normally just glance over.
His techniques are excellent. Has great eyes for framing, composition and colours. He has great timing to catch things at the right time.
Kai is someone whom I look up to.
Kai has a big heart, as big as the sea.
Thanks for sharing your wonderful work.
Take care my friend. Happy clicking.
23rd March, 2008
"Kai keeps me intrigued and interested and constantly amazed at what he does with his camera. I love his eye, seeing through his lens and he consistently produces outstanding photographs that thrill me. Be sure to look at his entire stream of photos and remember not do drown, because they are awesome and deep. Stunning in one word, but they speak thousands.. His images are simple yet profound, and that is what keeps me grounded to his stream. "Seek and you shall find."
Kai is so wonderfully talented, extremely generous with his feed back and comments and encouraging of my photos - it's such an honor to be among his flickr friends."
19th February, 2008
"If you need to see sunshine, look at Kai, for his open-hearted and caring smile sends golden rays through his buddy icon. If you are disheartened by the violence, terrors or materialism in the metropolitan cities, follow Kai's photo stream and you'll find humanitarian concerns everywhere.
Kai's love for friends, people and the city he lives in is so direct, simple, unreserved and altruistic that one could immediately feel it at the first visit. Yet, if one spends a bit more time reading his photo statements, the spiritual reward is priceless for they are soul-touching and profound in such a simple and direct message-- Kai loves you.
Every bench, every tree, every brick, every window and every door in New York is retouched by Kai's creativity and humanitarianism that I've realized that it's not only New York but the World in a larger scope Kai would like the visitors to break through the invisible walls and high rises to reach out to love the world we are living in and the people we are living with.
Every moment spent on Kai's stream is a treat to the soul. I am so glad to have got to know Kai, an amazing source of warmth, love, and hope just like the torch held by the Statue of Liberty. Thank you for being a great and encouraging friend, dear Kai!"
17th February, 2008
I'm so happy and honored to be able to write this testimonial for you.
I had no idea when I added Kai as a contact, that he would soon turn out to be one of my favorite photographers here on Flickr.
This testimonial is going to fall short of really giving Kai the credit he truly deserves, but let me begin by looking at his photostream.
Kai's work is so wonderful because he always sees something in life we may not always pay attention to. His photostream his filled with all types of subjects and themes. He photographs people, nature, objects, landscapes, birds and dogs, and much more. I'm always interested in what or where he will turn his camera to next.
Some of my favorites from his beautiful stream is "The Rays of the Sun" which is awe inspiring and so striking - it is like a great light into the soul. He matches it with a beautiful quote, definitely check out this photo for yourself.
One of my personal favorites is "Islam Means Peace." It is deeply touching and moving not only for the wonderful image of the mosque, achieved through Kai's skillful processing techniques but for the words Kai writes, showing what a caring and compassionate soul he has.
"The Doors" is absolutely fantastic - so creative and one of the most unique scenes I have seen on the entire world of Flickr. The fact that he saw this image while walking in the park, shows what a great eye Kai has for wonderful scenes of interest.
I have so many other favorites from Kai, like "Lovers in the Park", "Walking Alone" and "Hands."
I recommend his photostream highly as you can easily tell :D When I visit Kai's stream, and I visit always, I come away with much more than just a wonderful view, perspective and image, but I also come away with words to fill the heart because Kai combines his wonderful work with wise, thoughtful and deep words. He makes me think, he makes me look at something twice, he makes me appreciate life, he makes me see beauty in the hidden corners of our existence, he inspires me to expand my way of thinking, he encourages acceptance of all people and ways of life.
Traveling through Kai's photostream is a wonderful journey through the eyes of Kai and and his kind heart and soul. He gives so much to others through his photos. I'm amazed by his beautiful vision, check out his stream, you will be moved and inspired.
Thanks Kai for sharing your wonderful work with all of us. I'm so glad to have you as a friend on Flickr. Looking forward to more of your visions in the future :))
All the best,
25th January, 2008
