1. Tell us about yourself...
Hello, I'm Mia. I'm 24, and I love taking photos.
I'm a university student, and hopefully this is my last year in uni.
I live with my parents and a younger sister.
I'm passionate about life and a curious person - always ready to explore and learn, and have fun.
2. Who or what inspired you to start photography?
When I got my first camera, I was supposed to go on a school trip. At first I was taking snapshots of myself (loads and loads) - posing in myspace/facebook kind of way (typical teen girl, I know). Then I got enough of that, and I wanted to develop my ability (as in: take pictures of something else)
...I started taking photos of the sky, flowers in my grandma's garden etc. and then it turned into real passion and love. That's when I started having different ideas and browsing art sites to find out and

Spring arrived!Finally spring arrived in Holland too!
Beautiful flowers are coming up and the tulip fields are growing really fast. Hope to find some time next week to photograph some of the tulip fields. Also got a lot of new and fresh ideas so you will be spammed soon again. I've been a little inactive lately because I don't have much time at the moment, my internship takes a lot of time, have to work in the weekends and have been doing a lot of fotoshoots with horses and their owners. Also my own horse needs her attention. But now a new fresh start!
Also my premiumship expired this week. A big shame. So if anyone is willing to donate some points for a premiumship I will love you forever! Haha. Thank you in advance!

IowaIf you visit Iowa,
you'll call her fields empty,
but she wasn't born that way.
A part of her was carved out
when she was ripped between Virginia
and the purple mountains of New Mexico.
Her gold hair, she tore it out when she realized
it didn't make her a princess.
She laid her locks strung along every road
leading somewhere else.
White hairs on her cheeks
are scars from winter.
Her hair darkens with the dampness
of summer rains.
The storms are never silent,
but neither is life when there's a tear
in your childhood where
a parent ought to be.
I've been flooded by Iowa's sorrow.
The only way I can distract her from her own voided landscape
is if I hate myself harder than she cries.
She just wants to fly
and I want to bus or train,
not because I fear death, but because
I want to take living slow.
It's the only way I ever feel.
From the air it's hard to watch Earth's hips move.
But Earth can't compare to the country.
That's my girl.
Full grown even when harvesting season's j
