The Last Station
I know I'm not here alone
I can hear them sigh and moan
Though it's dark here
There's a presence I can feel
As the world spins round once more
Closing one more opened door
I find comfort in the words he used to say
So now I'm on my way...

Reborn
Associated with the Sun, phoenix is said to obtain new life by going down in flames and arising from its ashes.
As for me, it's always the water...
Always the sea...

________________________________
A wind whips the leaves from the trees
And it is revealed to us
That we are dreams within dreams
Born from some wretched
Old imagination of yesteryear
The morning new, the morning red,
The fiery promise
Mad swirling smoke wheels round her head
Dedication to the queen of souls, her lost disciples
And when the fire's work is done
The phoenix now reborn

Ocean's lullaby
Just lay back, close your eyes, feel the waves gently lapping all around you, the ocean's mist caressing your skin, listen to the sea's music in its constant hide and seek with the beach, breathe, taste the salt in the cool night breeze and pray that when you sleep you dream of you lying on that rock, feeling the waves gently lapping all around you, the ocean's mist caressing your skin, listening to the sea's music in its constant hide and seek with the beach, breathing, tasting the salt in the cool night breeze... And when you wake up and realize that even the sweetest dream of yours falls short in comparison to your reality , then you'll know you're really, truly blessed...

Oblivion

...so, it was a hot, sleepless night... and you have no idea how much I love sleepless nights, so many pieces fall into place during such nights, so many images were born this way. But that one was particularly hot, so I imagined I was lying on my rock, waves gently lapping at it all around me, listening to the sea's music in its constant hide and seek with the beach, breathing and tasting the salt in the cool night breeze... Sleep never felt, sounded or tasted better...

That became my lullaby for almost a year, even during a long, unusually cold winter. That image was my last conscious thought before dreamworld claimed me.

It took me a year before I found the nerve to try and capture it, because if for some reason the actual experience came short to my lullaby, I will lose it forever.

Well, turns out I needn't have worried...

Digital Camera Photographer of the Year 2011...

Journal Entry: Wed Dec 21, 2011, 1:53 PM
Hello my devious, deviant friends, I wonder how many of you are still here, still following or still caring about anything I have to say after all this time I have been away :blush:
The thing is that there has been a lot of traveling around this past few months (not complaining of course)… which made DA messages pile up (not complaining of course)… which caused some anxiety attacks whenever I returned home about how on earth I was going to reply, thank, comment, watch, younameit… which was resolved by simply doing nothing… which resulted in feeling too ashamed even to post something new… and the messages kept piling up… vicious, devious circle.
Anyway, this is just to share the good news with anyone still here, still following and still caring enough to read :)

And before I sign off, just to make one thing very clear… I didn't neglect DeviantArt because I don't care about your comments, your love and support anymore, quite the opposite. I care too much which makes me feel bad to leave them without proper response. It's much easier to share, respond and thank people in Google+ or Facebook and it's much easier to post to 1x, 500px or Flickr without having to respond to every comment since no one expects any reply out of you. Still, I'm not forgetting that I owe my whole new life and what I am today to DeviantArt, for more than just one reasons. I don't want to sound mushy so I'll leave it to that, just know that I've read your comments and I'm very grateful for all of them, for all the faves, the watches, the features, the encouraging words, the enthusiastic remarks, it's just not possible for me to reply individually at this point so I hope that one big, heartfelt THANK YOU is enough for you. I know it isn't for me, but that's all I can do for the time being.
Signing off here, have a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year, be ridiculously happy, be stubbornly positive no matter what and BE NICE!

Maria Kaimaki
Artist | Professional | Photography
Greece
…a teacher by profession, a perpetual student in all things that interest me and –since 2008- a landscape photographer by passion. Photography changed my life in more ways than I could have imagined, it opened a door to a whole new reality, a new way of seeing and appreciating the world around me, a new philosophy and way of life. In photography you learn to focus on what’s important, excluding from your frame the insignificant or ugly elements of a scene. That’s not so far from how people should live their life.

Photography is for me a reason to wake up before the sun comes up, a reason to explore and discover new places and enjoy them in all their beauty. Most importantly it's the means to collect experiences and memories. Sometimes I'm able to transform those experiences and memories into an image I can share. Other times they just remain as images in my mind. They are equally real to me either way.
