    "I cannot believe that I haven't already written a testimonial for Azzam. Simply put, his pictures are spellbinding. His use of color and composition are one of a kind, and I swear he captures bokeh that is out of this world. He has inspired so many with his amazing skills and kindness. Thank you, Azzam, for sharing your view of the world with us through your beautiful, beautiful photography. =]]"

    "Beautiful work! I am a big fan of his work and I contest anyone who looks at his stream not to become a fan as well.

    Each photo is beautifully shot and edited and at only 18.. you are going to go a long way. Keep up the great work and in the meanwhile I'll carry on looking forward to the latest updates : )"

    "I am so lucky to be Azzam's friend not only on Flickr, but in real life too! I believe that Azzam's photography reflects who he is; a person so astounding and selfless that you know that he will eventually go on to do something bigger and more profound than ever. I love Azzam, and consider yourself lucky to associate yourself with such an amazing artist and person."

    "Azzam aka My Reality aka King of Bokeh has one of the most beautiful photostreams on flickr. His use of light in portraits, landscapes, and macros is absolutely brilliant. The colors in his photos and the concepts of his photos are wonderful and magical. His photostream is certainly one that you can browse over and over again without ever tiring of it.

    Keep on uploading your awesomeness, Azzam :)"

    "MyReality is one of those photographers that make me really jealous; so many pictures explored, many favs and many contacts, and there's a good reason for that.

    When browsing his photostream in chronological order you can really notice his 'style' and picture quality changed, colors and composition get better with every picture.

    When viewing his latest uploads you can notice every picture has a really good execution; depth of field, shutterspeed, composition, everything is simply top notch.

    I think his photography inspires many a flickrer, and it certainly inspires me."

    "Azzam is definitely the best photographer I know! He is the only reason I got into photography myself. His pictures are incredible outstanding. He does some of the best bokeh shots I have ever seen. He has the best photography eye; he sees every single one of his pictures before he decides to start shooting. Its amazing what my best bud can do if he puts his mind to it. Get job Azzam!!! :)"
