Miksang is a Tibetan word meaning ‘good eye’. While my photography is not technically good I believe that I have this. I like to ‘see’ with all of myself and try to see clearly and with a gentle spirit, the things that are around me. When we are able to do this the world becomes a magical place and we become childlike in our perceptions of it.
So, Miksang photography is about purity and simplicity, rather than about improving the images we create with editing and enhancing. It is as it is, imperfect, the result of a synchronising of eye and mind in the briefest of moments.
I am not a poet either, but I will sometimes write a poem or maybe a Haiku, and this seems like a fitting place, a different nature and aspect of the gypsy that can be found at my other blog, Lucid Gypsy.
