    "Rebecca knows what pain feels like and it shows. This is perhaps a weird way to describe my love for her work, but I'll be honest: her weaknesses are her strength. Afraid to go to the darker places, she does it anyway. She reminds people of their heartaches and also of how they are not alone. She's so wonderful with film, strange colours that show what it's like when your fears cause confusion. Sleeplessness, disgust with oneself, and the feeling that there's always something behind you. Rebecca shows how torturing it can be to be a teenager in this world, but magically makes it beautiful."

    "I don't know a great deal about photos, or aethetics, or how the hell she does those lovely red tints. Even if she did promise to tell me one day. I do know that somehow she brings it all together in a way I never have. She asks the most interesting questions too."

    "i'd say you're an amazing photographer, but you're so much beyond that. it takes someone who really understands things, and feels things to be a good photographer. you do. it isn't just pressing a button on a camera. your mind is more intelligent and creative than anyone i know. your writings are brilliant in addition to your photos (not angsty, or at least i don't think so. but maybe that's because i'm angsty, too XD)
    anyway, i wuf you more than Mein Kampfy Chair. and that's a lot more. like, say, 9000 times more? i think so.
    twingsies forever. we are honestly so much alike, yet so different, it's bizarre.

    "So, Becca.
    her photographs- a sigh at the end of the day, a safe place, a small corner where only you will fit. she'll show you her world but there are exceptions-there is always another place, another layer, one more word you didn't get to say. Always one step ahead, suddenly everywhere at once. a warning sign-does anyone know you are going this way? things will never look the same again."

Her photos can make me shake, and hurt, and I feel my heart sting... but thats what a good photographer has the power to do."

    "i feel like i could just crawl through my screen and fall asleep in her stream... like when you lay on the grass on a cool autumn's day with your eyes closed. and golden little rays of sunshine start kissing your skin and a tiny little chill goes down your spine, and then you become comfortable and the chill turns to warmth. you know how you wrap yourself up in that feeling and never want it to end? that's how her photos make me feel. her beauty is reflected in her photos and that so magical."

    "Violet...Words do not describe...She is so amazing and she is just great. without her i wouldnt be taking pictures and i probably wouldnt even have a flickr...she teaches me whether she wants to or not and shes probably my best friend at this school. shes not two-faced or bratty like almost everyone else. i love this girl...cant wait for xmas...
    I GOT BLISTERS ON MY FINGAAAS!
    oh btw. this is barbra from da best buy u need to come pick up your mooooviiess.


    becca is the best friend i have ever had. i love her with all of my heart. when she was here we took each other for granted, and now that shes gone i dont know how to comprehend how much i have lost by losing her, and im the one who did it. i feel so terrible that i caused her to have to leave because i miss her and love her.
    this girl is a true inspiration. if it wasnt for her, i would have never picked up a camera, and i never wouldve used photoshop or any of the things she taught me to do. everything that we did or said or sang somehow inspired us to take pictures. i used to get so upset when i felt like taking pictures when becca didnt. i just wanted to learn everything i possibly could from her and help her the best that i could. i miss her so much and i just want her to come back. i cant push the shutter button without imagining you calling me ther "shutter-button-pusher". i want all of our fun times back, because i didnt realize how important they were to me until now.
    i miss you and love you
    gracie
    ps. forgive suede for what he said last night. he truly cares about you and he was upset. he wants to help you as much as he can just like i do...he stayed up all night last night worrying about you...
    always remember: you. are. loved."

    "wtf. how did i not discover you earlier? hfsd;jf;kljafks;jafk/jfvnc/. ahhhie hjdkl;a okay so... the photos are unreal. it's like they're not even trying that hard. photographs shouldn't be trying hard. they should show life and be honest and not sugar things up, but expose true beauty. that's how i feel becca's photos are. i would loooove to read a book / watch a film based off of her pictures, but then it's like... all i really need are her photos and i can do that stuff in my head. ugh. it just makes me angry that i try so hard to make my pictures so pretty or something. i think i've learned a lot since looking through her stream for the first time (wtf like a minute ago??!) and it intrigues me, i can't wait for more, and to use what i've learned in my own life. hjdfkh;gs MKAGY HJK"
