"Look and think before opening the shutter. The heart and mind are the true lens of the camera."
-Yousuf Karsh

"To take photographs means to recognize -- simultaneously and within a fraction of a second -- both the fact itself and the rigorous organization of visually perceived forms that give it meaning. It is putting one's head, one's eye and one's heart on the same axis."

    "I love seeing the latest photos by flipkeat. Phyllis does the most amazing job capturing her environment and all those beautiful bits of nature that most people never see. She must have incredible patience because the moments she captures are perfect. She goes on her morning walks with her point and shoot camera and returns with amazing photographs worthy of EXPLORE and framing. I'm glad you are my flickr friend Phyllis. Thanks for sharing your world with the rest of us everyday. You're amazing!"

    "I am sure whatever i write about this amazing photographer, it would not be anything new.

    She amazes me with her photographs, every new entry of hers is better than the previous one. Her angles, compositions and framing has improved drastically. wether its a bird, a flower, a street shot or the niagra falls, her pictures depict the true beauty of the subject. I have never seen anyone improved at this high speed.

    I wish her all the success and happiness in life.

    happy clicking."

    David Cartier says:

    "This may hold true for all the visual arts, but .... Especially with nature photography I believe it is the emotion and sensitivity , the sense of love and awe, behind the camera's viewfinder which determines the degree to which the viewer is engaged by the photo .... Flipkeat's photos are infused with exactly this quality, making her imagery a pure joy to behold .... With such "seeing" ability, the type of equipment
    used is just irrelevant."

    "For someone who's been into flickn' just last February, Phyllis certainly is one amazing representative of the art of photography. Her works clearly show more than just the good eye, the right technique, the proper exposure to the abundant subjects around her, but most of all that dedication and delicate touch in capturing the moment into pixels at their best...a sure manifestation of her true love for the art and for beauty. Following up on Tim's testimonial that you don't need those fancy DSLRs to come up with such fantastic array of photos, I'd say I myself have been in and around some photostreams here at Flickr and to that effect, I've seen a whole lot of shots taken with some of the most expensive gears in the market that don't even come close to the quality of her works. A testimony to the true meaning of artistry which is: not with the tools nor the canvas are masterpieces created, but by the master himself."

    "Phyllis just started flickring in February, 2008. She already has quite a following, and for good reason. Her talented eye is particularly good at capturing birds, animals, flowers, and landscapes.
    Flipkeat has great timing for her animal photos, and a wonderful sense of composition throughout.
    She apparently spends half her time outdoors taking photos, and the other half making fine, encouraging comments to other flickr photographers. She proves beyond a doubt that you don't have to have a fancy DSLR to produce outstanding results."
