    "It has come to my attention that I have not written a testimonial about one of my favorite photo friends. I am ashamed, and will hesitate no longer in writing something for this lovely lass.

    Dear Karrah Kasserole Kobus.

    You rock.

    Besides the awesome imagery and ideas you create, you have a wonderful heart and a gentle spirit to boot which I very much admire and love. I look forward to seeing how you and I both grow as artists and as friends. We rock. I am now going to go through your entire photo stream and write things. Because I haven't really done that much, and you deserve it.

    "Once in a while I come across amazing people that make me want to get up and change the world. Karrah is one of them.
    She is filled with the most unusual thoughts, and not only is she a fashion goddess, she is a kind-hearted, wonderful photographer whose work is mind-blowing.
    Every photograph of hers is well made, detailed, and full of life. It's as if one can actually get into the role of the scene and feel every event that she has conjured up in her magic bowl of photography.

    Karrah, you are great. Words will never be enough to describe your work, so I'll leave it at this. Thank you for being you."

    Rebecca Bentliff says:

    You were one of my first big inspirations and main reasons I started to move into more conceptual photography when I found myself unsure of which direction I wanted to go with my work. I remember your stream being one of the first I found after making a Flickr account and thinking "I really hope I can take photos like that someday". You've continued to be inspiring to me ever since and I've loved watching how you've progressed within your work, every time you upload I always find something new to be speechless about in each and every photo. When I'm feeling down about what I'm doing or just generally stuck for inspiration, your stream is the first I'll visit to help me see the beauty in everything again.
    I feel like I'm on the verge of rambling so I'll end with this -
    You're an amazing person, with beautiful images that fully reflect your personality. I can't wait to carry on being inspired by you over and over again.

    "Karrah's photography is rich, dynamic, simple, powerful, both strong and weak, sad and joyful and absolutely beautiful! She is one of my favourite photographers around, and I hope to eventually find the secret to creating such amazingly beautiful portraits such as hers! She is such an inspiration to me and I will always love and remember her photographs!"

    "Dear Karrah,
    You were one of my first inspirations. You have a special eye for details and stories and emotions that put your photography in a category of its own. You are beautiful, not just physically, but also as a person. Your experiences have shaped your outlook on life and you help others be comfortable with who they are by leading by example.
    Thank you for being wonderful.

    "Karrah's photography has absolutely blown me away! I simply cannot understand how she can do that image after image! I can immediately tell if some photo is taken by her because she has such a distinctive style. I often find myself thinking, 'Wow, this photo is so amazing that how can she ever do better!" But then, it happens. I guess it's just not possible for her to take bad photos. I always get so inspired when I browse through her photostream which always gives me the urge to create something, too!

    Karrah, you're such an inspiration to me. I hope all the best for you, and will continue waiting new work to come!"

    "I really honestly do not know why I haven't written one of these for you yet, but I think it's about time.

    Karrah, you are absolutely one of my favorite photographers on this site, by far. Every photo, every concept is just amazing and brilliant and so well done. I'm not on here nearly as much as I used to be, but whenever I log on, your stream is always one of the first I visit- there's only a handful of people's photos I look at when I don't see recent uploads and you are definitely one of those few. Thank you for sharing your talent with the flickr world and with everyone who has/will come across your photography. You have such a gift for capturing beauty and moments, never give that up.

    "The photostream of Karrah is one of the best I have ever seen on Flickr. There are some people here who are like stars and Karrah is one of them.
    I absolutely love her style of pictures. It's like everything become magical whit her camera and her eye. I don't know how her pictures can be as perfect; it's amazing. And I really don't know where she finds all these ideas, she must have a really beautiful mind. I'm sure she will improve again and again and it will be more insanely amazing.
    She's so inspiring.

    Thanks for your work and for making the world spectacular, Karrah."

    Karrah is without a doubt one of the most amazing & talented, not to mention beautiful, people on this website. She has a really wonderful eye for simple beauty, she is incredibly talented with her editing & she is so in tune with her creativity.

    She inspires me so much, I can't even begin to explain. It's hard sometimes to actually fathom the thought that she is still human & she, like all of us, started from being an aspiring photographer with an interest in photography, to a professional photographer who adores photography & the benefits that come with it.

    Thank you Karrah, for inspiring me and for allowing me to believe in myself. No words I ever say can thank you enough."

    I only recently found your stream here on flickr (at the insistence of another talented photographer). when i started looking at your stream, i literally could not stop looking through it until i got to the end. the concepts you put into your photos are nothing short of brilliance. the night i found your stream, i finished looking at all your photos at 3 am, and then got up, grabbed my camera and tripod, messed up my hair, did some crazy makeup and went outside in the middle of the street to take some photos. you've been a huge inspiration for me. and you deserve every single comment, view, favorite, etc on your photos.

    i'm so so glad i found your stream. so so glad!!"

I just want to explain that I look at your stream EVERY single day. And every time I look, I find something new and exciting, even if you have not uploaded that day. Your photo's are filled with magic and whimsy. Your editing is completely flawless and absolutely beautiful. I someday aspire to be like you. You're the first testimonial i've ever written and I'm happy that's so, because you are my favorite photographer on flickr. Everything about you and your photo's are fantastic, I love to just get lost in this beautiful world you've created for yourself, the rest of flickr, and me. And I want to thank you for that."

    "I have no idea why I haven't written a testimonial about Karrah yet! Her Flickr stream is a huge source of inspiration for me. Not only does she produce thought-provoking art, but she is also one of the kindest contacts that I have here on Flickr. Get to know her and you will be astounded by her grounded personality and her insight into photography. Karrah doesn't make art; she constructs worlds! I would definitely recommend taking a look into those worlds right now! ;)

    I see big things for her in the not-so-distant future!

    Good luck Karrah! In all that you pursue!

    "Karrah, possibly one of my earliest and most memorable inspirations, next to the God that is Tim Walker, of course. I even remember taking a similar photo to one that she produced in her earlier days as she was so incredibly inspiring, and since then, she has only become more and more spectacular. I feel, her style has changed so drastically, but none of her images would look out of place in Vogue. Not only are her images nothing short of amazing. But she is flawlessly beautiful; and I swear if she weren't so God damn lovely, I'd have resented her years ago for all that I envy so very greatly about her. She is headed for wonderful things, I have every faith in that fact. This is so overdue, I know, and I am so rubbish with words, but I owe every bit of creativity in my soul to this girl, and for one individual to be the source of what appears to me, my never ending creativity, well, that in itself is pretty phonomenal. Thank-you, so much Karrah. We shall meet someday, I will make sure of it.."

    You know what is probably the most inspiring thing about are not afraid to take risks.
    You always show us a different side of your photography.

    I saw your pictures about 7 months ago. Looking back to that time, you'll see how much you developed. Your pictures always where amazing....but now...they are to die for!
    Your pictures always touch me, in alot of diferent ways.
    They are so brilliant executed, full of emotion and always beautiful and inspiring.

    Please Karrah, don't stop doing the thing you love....because you doing it good. You doing it really good!

    You are an inspiration."

    And of course, you always have (and had) the most amazing ideas. But now also your editing is flawless. You have made such great progress in such a short time: that's what I call talent ;)
    I'm so glad I found you!"

It's absolutely, completely, and utterly amazing how much of a difference her photographs have taken since the beginning of her project. Karrah has really been through so much, and I love how she's never, ever afraid to show to the world how she's coping with everything in her life. There is such raw emotion in her photographs and I love the deep meanings and concepts behind each and every one of her pictures. She spends probably most of her days on these pictures, and I find that truly amazing. She puts so, so much time and effort into her photographs to produce a true improvement into her pictures. Karrah is simply stunning and so are her photographs."
