I believe in God even when He is silent.

    "She is a great friend and an encourager to me! I do not know why I never thought of doing this until now but I personally think she can shoot anything. She has an eye on her that I hope really influences me. She has a way of seeing things that makes the everyday subject look special. Love her work and cannot wait until she publishes so I can support her work!"

    "Visiting Karen's photostream is a delight any day. She views everything through her lens, and gives you a glimpse into her world as she sees it. She is one of the most creative people I know, and she inspires me to look at my world differently. There isn't a place where she's afraid to pull out her camera, thus capturing some terrific moments. Thanks for such wonderful work Karen, we look forward to lots more to come. :)"

    "Sarahbelle's photostream is the most spiritually uplifting place I've found on flickr. Her wonderful vintage photos of her family reads very much like my own family album; for me, her photographs of people and nature are stunning reminders of the beauty of this world and the One Who Created it. I wish her all the love, peace, happiness (and photo memory cards) in the world."

    "Karen"SarahBelle" knows how to show beauty.Her pictures are full of magnificent colours and poetry.

    But I also like visiting her stream and looking at the "old" pictures taken in the 60,70s. My favourite set is "Living in Bermuda".

    Keep on grooving,Karen!

    "It has been a joy to watch her progression from enthusiastic snapshooter to a careful producer of well-composed and compelling images.

    Her work reveals an underlying fine eye that has evolved into a body of great photographs which display good technical control and an understanding of how to reveal the world around her."
