WOW – great edge!!! It’s a watch-yer-step moment indeed!

Hi Maxy and Sherri!

@ Sherri ~ I’m going back to Karijini in a couple of weeks and hope to capture some more of its unbelievable beauty. I really don’t think I’ve been to a more incredible natural beauty than “Kermit’s Pool” in Hancock Gorge. It’s an astounding place to be. :)

@ Maxy… before I went to Karijini, Cape Leveque was (for me) the most beautiful place in Australia =D

So between the two of you, you’ve picked my two favourite places to photograph… and to spend time =D

Sounds like an amazing place! You really capture the color of the terrain so beautifully!

i knew your work would grab my eyes and touch my heart..
you have a beautiful gift of seeing, of sharing and of showing why.
as our world is in such turmoil these days visiting your gallery gave me breaths of goodness and feelings of healing fresh air..
you are one with all..of peace, of love and you pass it.

And because I really do like this one A LOT, here is a large version of “StormWatcher”. The base image is a photograph I took of the lovely and talented Fleur Fleming and all of the textures and layers are my own photos too :)

Seeing your sunset above Mieke, I can see now why you packed your bags up and moved west! WOW!

Congrats Mieke on a magnificent and beautiful exhibition.

Graham!!! Yay! You came to say hi!!! Thank you :) :) :)
And yes ~ it does make ‘living remote’ so much more bearable when you get natural wonders like this… Tonight was a ripper too, but I was walking the dog at a friend’s place and left the camera in the car :(

@ Robin ~ You know what? That shot was one of my favourites, but it had such a lukewarm response that I now just feel a little sad when I see it… but you’ve just given me a reason to think I shouldn’t completely doubt my instincts… Thank you!! =D

Mieke, you have such unique art…I just love it..so so beautiful …I wanted to stop back and see some more and comment!!
Sherri:):)

Mieke Boynton Mieke Boynton 2542 posts

That is the nicest compliment, Sherri!!

It is very difficult to be ‘unique’ in photography unless you do a lot of editing to your work… so I’m thrilled that you think so!

Big hugs!!!
XOXOXOXOXOXOX

Been meaning to come by Mieke. I have been gone so much this last week, on a small getaway and well I forgot my camera!!
But I wanted to post this as one hella fascinating shot and intrest from you. I so wish you would put your images in Art in Math. these are so well done and thought out. I love the clean lines and abstract quality to your reflective b&w stripes… just superb

Oh and one more very important element I am enjoying about you Mieke, your poetry. Tells me something about your shy self, well not so shy anymore, you are a powerhouse. You have to be to write like this. Touching, telling and from the deep parts of heARt:

Scavenger

I am a seeker,
a searcher,
a scavenger.

There is an empty place inside
that makes me restless.
It makes me hungry.
It beats hollowly,
aching to be filled.

The throbbing hole
where my heart was.

I try to fill it,
to stuff it full
with pieces stolen
from the hearts of others.

I hunt.
I steal.
I take what I can get:
echoes of memories,
reminders of the one
who made me complete.

A look,
a smile,
a kiss…
regardless of the consequences.

Anything hurts less
than the raw, bleeding emptiness
that haunts me
when I wake,
when I sleep,
in my dreams.

Possessing me.
Controlling me.
Becoming me.

and one image I think goes with this verse:


The Derby Jetty at Sunset
by Mieke Boynton

That is you…yes? teehehehe xxx

Mieke Boynton Mieke Boynton 2542 posts

Oh no!! You found the ONLY picture of me and put it here!?!?! I couldn’t get anyone else to pose for long enough… they kept wandering off and leaving my photo looking like ghosts were in it!!

I’m so glad you enjoy my poetry. I haven’t written anything for ages… but I guess I’m funnelling all my creative energy into photography, so I guess there’s not a lot left over!

I will join Art in Math… I just can never see the “Maths” (that’s what we say over here!) in Art… you’ll have to suggest which ones to add :)

@ Maxy… I’m going back there NEXT WEEK!!! So so so so so very excited! Hopefully I manage to achieve a few more shots like this! :) Thank you for coming back!
