Photography... It’s a feel... a taste... a moment of peace... a moment of life... a raise for the spirit to come and emerge with every single beauty in life... it’s a Life...

Sun lights shining the greens all around... walking barefooted to feel the ground... listening to the birds music... staring at the unlimited sky... with a cool breeze flying my short curlies on my face... and opening my eyes to notice every single detail... every day is an awesome day... feeling every moment with a touch of beauty all around... what could be better?...

That what I feel when I walk in our garden holding my camera and taking photos for every beauty I find... I can never be thankful enough to him, all what I could say... thank you God for giving me another day to live and see this...

My world begins from my lens... When I hold my camera in my hands, put the viewfinder on my eye, my whole senses merge with it, I become the camera and the camera becomes me, and then I flow all my feelings through the lens, that's the way my photos come out...

Our treasures is our hearts and spirits...

    "Ran'spirit shines so bright! She is a girl of beauty and grace. Her stream is a magical and creative work of art. You can't help but find inspiration from her work!
    Look at her beautiful skies, her gorgeous flowers, her lovely toys! Her compositions are always awesome. Ran has the ability to create beauty, enchantment, magic, playfulness or wonderment in every photo. It reaches down to your soul. Each photo shows the diversity of this wonderful person. Each picture is different from the other. And it is more than a picture. It is Art.
    I felt in love with her work when I saw for the first time her adorable hedgehogs! What a great story and wonderful photos ! You must see that set !
    Thank you Ran for your friendship."

    "Ah, what to say about Ran, One of the most special people I know on Flickr. Really from the first day I came across her stream I thought we must be long lost sisters. I love her way of looking at the world and often the words she writes are ones already spoken in my heart. Funny that she lives half way around the world from me. Her favourite colour is blue as is mine and she loves chocolate so how could I not like her? But really, what I love the most about Ran is that if ever I am having a bad day or feeling a little down I know that whatever she posts will cheer me up. She will thrill me with her fantastic imagination, her great photographic talent and also touch me with her words. She really does have an old soul, she cares about all the people around her, she is sensitive and kind, she has a heart bigger than anyone else I know and I am so lucky to have found her on Flickr and so glad we are friends. Have a peek through her photos and you will be captivated yourself."

    I should have written this long ago, but late better than never! I am amazed by a LOT of people here on Flickr, and you are at the top of my list. You took notice of me very early on in my flickr days and supported me, and encouraged me. You welcomed me with your gracious caring words. I so appreciate you! you evoke true passion with your photos, and evoke true passion with your words.

    I love that we are friends, I get to see a true artist do her thing and get to become a better person in the process,
    Thank you for everything..."

    "BlueLunarRose has the real Spirit of Photography and the beauty that it can bring into our lives. I am but a newcomer to Flickr yet I have the same ambitions. Ironically, Blue has always been my favorite color.

    I am most impressed with her Extensive Profile. It sets an example for the rest of us. Thankyou, RAN, for your works and inspiration."

    "My "BLUE" friend. When you think about blue you have to keep in mind just ONE artist: BlueLunarRose. Her flowers are amazing, full of color, the Blue one. BlueLunarRose is also a "Caramel" friend, dew and drops are so........sweet. She is one of my first Flickr friend and I love her work. She is always present and her world is actually my world.
    Thanks to be my friend (Both Blue and Caramel :-))"

    "I don't know whether to start with Ran the amazing photographer or Ran the amazing person because she is certainly both. Just one glance at Ran's photostream & you will certainly agree that she is a very talented, creative artist & her shots never cease to amaze or disappoint me. Her nature & wildlife shots are stunning & her "blue" shots are second to none.

    Ran is also the originator of some very fine groups focusing on appreciation of the beautiful things in life like love, peace & harmony & the abundant love she has certainly shines through.

    If there were more people like Ran the world would be a better place, don't ever change my dear, sweet flickr friend!"

    "I'm lucky enough to meet BlueLunarRose -- Ran -- through Flickr, and I will always be grateful.

    Not only is she a fabulous photographer who posts creative and artistic photos that I can learn from, but she is a force for positivity in this world.

    It's interesting to me. I was rather depressed recently, and I discovered that BlueLunarRose had commented on some of my pictures. She invited them to be posted in a couple of groups, groups that focus on positivity in the world.

    Her comments brightened my day, and her introduction brightened my experience on Flickr. The groups she invited me to feature some of the most beautiful and happy pictures on Flickr.

    Since I originally wrote a testimonial for Ran, I've gotten to know her through Flickrmail, and I'm very delighted that this has happened! She administers -- and founded -- three of the most awesome and spiritually positive groups on Flickr. I really love them, not only for their positivity, but for the beauty of the photos therein.

    Those groups -- which you can find listed on Ran's profile, are:

    www.flickr.com/gr...

    www.flickr.com/gr...

    www.flickr.com/gr...

    Take time to join them and participate in them. You'll be glad you did.

    Ran, I'm so glad we've become friends! You're very talented at photography, and you're such a good person! And you have darling hedgehogs!

    :)"

    "Ran is one of the really incredibly talented and positive mined persons i have come across on flickr. She see love and peace in everything around her, and doesn't feel shy to spread it :))
    The first time i stumbled upon her hedgehog pic,.... i was so jealous(ha ha ha!),....and when i noticed that it was taken with a cellphone camera,....my jealousy knew no bounds(LOL!)
    She is original in her captures and very candid in expressing her thoughts about them, most important of all , she is one of the those rare people on flickr who read what you have written under your pic, and then gives you a most encouraging and nice comment!!
    I am sure all the hedgehogs in her neighbourhood must know her very well, but not a single one carries a look of fear in the pics that she took of them!!
    She has also made me work hard now since she got a SLR camera, soon there will be no room for me and my camera on the A-200 page :))
    Best of luck and best wishes for everything that you do in your life!!"
