a chilean-canadian living in Toronto and shaking up the Canadian mosaic with my life… thanks and welcome to my “Mondo Flickr”…the home of my secluded images…where your comments would make them alive…!

'The photograph isolates and perpetuates a moment of time: an important and revealing moment, or an unimportant and meaningless one, depending upon the photographer's understanding of his subject and mastery of his process.' -Edward Weston

    "I am an admirer of individuals like you who have the art and ability to capture photos that are more than a picture but pull the viewer to feel and see an image that has a meaning to them. That is what I believe art is whatever medium the creator uses: paints, sewing, pottery, photography...anything creatively produced for the pleasure of doing it. Sharing one's art is even more special and to share it freely is important to people who can not afford to experience art forms. I say 'thank you' because your photos are beautiful and my husband, Pete, has always held a special fascination of Easter Island. We are not well off financially so it will be important and special to him to see your photographs.
    Best wishes of health and many more travels that enrich other people.

    "when talent meets arts

    In Miguelyn' s photography every shot is taken to provoke emotions. Great master of colors and light, his works are an open window to the world. His images make you travel through his eyes, the simplicity of the compositions and the magic atmosphere always rich of light and brilliant colors.

    Unmistakable style, a great soul. I'm very proud of counting him in the administration team of Art of Images, The Best Captures, and The Best Portraits; but above all, counting him as a friend!

    thanks Miguelyn for sharing with us:)
    ................................................................
    Il talento fatto Arte.

    Nella fotografia di Miguelyn, ogni scatto è realizzato per emozionare. Grande maestro di colori e luci, i suoi lavori sono una finestra aperta sul mondo. Le sue immagini ti fanno viaggiare attraverso i suoi occhi, la semplicità delle composizioni, le inquadrature spettacolari e le magiche atmosfere, sempre ricche di luce e colori brillanti.

    Stile inconfondibile, grande anima. Io sono molto fiera di averlo nel team di amministrazione di Art of Images, The Best Captures e The Best Portraits ma, soprattutto, di averlo come amico!

    Grazie Miguelyn di condividere i tuoi lavori con noi! :)

    "Miguelyn è un vero artista e ammirando il suo album ho trovato moti suggerimenti ed idee che spero di poter applicare anche solo parzialmente nelle mia foto. La fantasia e le doti tecniche non gli mancano e si rileva dalle sue composizioni tutta la passione e l'amore verso la fotografia che ispira il Suo lavoro.

    Miguelyn is a true artist and admiring his album I have found so many suggestions and ideas that I hope for me to be able to be able to apply on my photos. The imagination and the technical dowries don't miss him and through his compositions the passion and the love toward the photo that inspires his hobby."

    "In the matter of photography Miguel is one of my unreachable ideals, who are an important inspiration for my own progress. Many of his photos could belong to one of those famous high gloss photo magazines. I admire his ability to capture a single moment and to transfer this trice in to an impressive treasure. An exceptional talent - just what I call an artist.

    "Este gran artista pinta sus obras con la luz, ... pero, con esa luz que acaricia el entorno que le rodea cómo si fuese un gran lienzo metafísico, al que da eternidad con sus cámara.
    " Escribe con luz, narra con luz y habla con luz, para mostrarnos esos " instantes " que inmortalizó con su ojo de cristal...
    Y en este bello arte, recorriendo los territorios que son de todos y de nadie a la vez, utiliza con sutileza y maestría los fundamentos del Arte fotográfico : la composición, el ritmo y la calidad precisa para conquistar el concepto de arte en su obra.

    Visitar y ver sus fotografías, es viaje a ese misterioso territorio de la creación que eterniza la belleza.

    No nos conocemos fisicamente, pero me gustaría nadar en el mismo mar simbólico de su buen hacer, para navegar en su arte y remar en la espuma de su sabiduría creativa.

    Saludos con admiración por la calidad de sus fotos !!!

    "Miguel:

    Un chileno que me hace sentir orgulloso, porque ha mostrado a todo el mundo lo bello que es este "largo y angosto" país, especialmente a través de su serie de fotografías sobre Isla de Pascua, "el ombligo del mundo", la cual muchas veces en el continente no valoramos como debería ser, pero Miguel, con su enorme talento, exporta al mundo las mejores imágenes de la isla, para el deleite de todos sus contactos de Flickr.
    Me gusta mucho que tu inspiración este dada por estos elementos. Te deseo que cada día vayas creciendo más y más, y continues con tu afición por la fotografía, para que podamos continuar observando tu trabajo, y Chile siga siendo conocido en el mundo por sus bellezas, y no por otras cosas que no son tan relevantes.

    Muchos saludos, amigo mío.
    Seba"

    "Just now and again one comes upon someone who is more gifted than most in his chosen form of expression - in this case photography.

    Although it is most unlikely that Miguel and I will ever meet, through Flickr I have discovered his photostream and this has enriched my life.

    His work is of exceptional quality and I hope one day to be as good a photographer as him.

    So, Thank You Flickr and Thank You Miguel."

    I've recently discovered Miguel’s brilliant, moving, fascinating, inspiring and beautifully composed photo stream on Flickr, from a side of the World, which I’ve never explored!

    His Exotic colors, and his unique and particular artistic way of taking photos make him one of my favorites contacts and friends here on Flickr, and he is "the Friend" in a full meaning of that word! Thank you my friend for the creative pix you post for us to enjoy every day…!"

    "Miguel is a warm and generous person, both with his time and kind words.
    A wonderful photographer who creates beautiful compositions, and gives thought to his subject before pressing the shutter. Not just good with any one type of composition, Miguel is good with all his subjects and deserves the praise his flickr friends bestow on him.
    A very busy person can still spare the time to pass on enthusiastic and encouraging comments, as Miguel always shows to others.
    I wish Miguel well in all he does & my best regards, always!"
