Starting Up Again

Journal Entry: Tue Aug 18, 2009, 2:56 AM
Ok so first I would like to retract my previous statement of being here for five years and instead state that i've been here for four. Yes, only four. divinedecay totally wins on that category HOWEVER we have both agreed that we need to resume our photo-taking adventures along with trying to get out of the house more and shoot photos. I need to get back on the streets and try to get my street gallery up to par with my work-related shots.

So in order to do this I proposed a challenge to divinedecay where we are going to choose our favorite deviation of the month and then challenge it against the other. The image with the most views / favorites will win and the victor will get something nice. In Bex's case it'll probably be a trip to Ikea where my reward will be being allowed to stay up until the wee hours of the morning playing Blazblue and getting ridiculously drunk while yelling at newbs.

We make a great couple.

It's nice to be back here and have a place to browse through other people's photos. My tastes are still the same, my preferences of people, and street, and spontaneous images still prevail over landscapes and studio work. I think I can appreciate art still...however as a person my appreciation for things in general have seemed to have slid towards the simpler, quieter things.

Soon I hope to rebuild my little thumbs footnote with some photos I've found recently that I enjoy. I've also decided I need to be a tad more liberal with my favorites and my watchlist. I used to avoid favoriting or watching someone unless I really really was impacted by them...however now I feel like it's more important to put the word out about other good photographers, especially the new ones here. dA is so much more of a daunting place than it was 4 years ago, and even then it was ridiculously hard at first to feel part of the community, and the community here is truly the most important aspect of this site.

So, photographers unite!

Thanks to everyone who is still around being awesome like pearwood and SRSmith and to the new ones like livvlush who Bex found and my old pupil who is still here: simplyspoken who will be growing a beard soon.

Cheers, here's to hoping we turn out some good photos this weekend =)

Beautiful photography, my friend. Always love seeing other armies in action, fascinates me. I am an IDF soldier, and proud to be one.

I love your photos. I'm an Army girlfriend and found myself tearing up at some of them. Thank you for sharing such an intimate part of your life and work in such an open way. It's very inspiring and I look forward to seeing your future work!
