:iconthesmallwonder:A reflection by thesmallwonder

While warm summer is probably my favorite season, I have a soft spot for fall.  It's a colorful season full of reds, oranges, and other fiery colors. It means cuddling with blankets, wearing cute scarves, and sipping warm cups of tea.

But mostly I love fall because it reminds me of one of my favorite childhood fairy tales called, "The Leaf in the Shape of a Key" by Joan Aiken. It's about boy who rides his bike beneath trees in fall, catching all shapes and colors of leaves. The last leaf is in the shape of a key, and it opens a door in the base of a tree.

I rode my bike under a lot of trees as a kid hoping to recreate the magic, but unfortunately, it's a little less whimsical when you live in a neighborhood of pine trees.

Still, fall is a time of nostalgia for me and the photograph “Skin and Bones” by Thechildrensang really keyed into my memories.

Now the only hurdle is being able to reach all the people that have seen Animator vs. Animation. I counted that my whole series has over 218 million views, but my social network is comparatively very small. So please share this link with your friends!

We have until August 11th at midnight! If I don't reach the goal then I won't get any funding, and Animator vs. Animation IV will NOT HAPPEN.

Thanks everyone!

Undiscovered Gems (48)

Sun Oct 12, 2014, 6:29 PM

With the launch of the "Undiscovered" browsing option, there are a TON of awesome artworks I've been finding and admiring, and I just have to share them with you guys.

I WILL be taking suggestions for this series, as well, so if you discover something while browsing the bowels of dA that you think needs to be shared, please send me ( TwilightPoetess ) a note titled Undiscovered Gems.


Undiscovered Gems (48)
today's theme: fandoms and fancies

*Heartache*Midnight graveyard, hush
White magnolia blossom
Crimson heartache sky
Petals of sadness
Midnight misery unfolds
 <da:thumb id="488016019"/>  We are diceWe are not programs
Carrying out code and loops until we die
We are not puppets
Dancing your strings to your tunes
We are not bricks
To be set in mortar and left to crumble
We are dice
Tossed by the wind
No one knows how we land
And no one, not even us
Can choose our fate
We are not toys
Used up and tossed out on a whim
We are not boxes
Filled with junk and left to gather dust
We are not books
To be read and judged by cruel hearts
We are dice
Rolling down a hill
And we can choose
To make it stop
But we don't have to.

at 2 a.m.
he howled up at the distant moon,
who stared down at us in that dumbfounded gaze
as it rested lorn-fully against the sky.
somewhere in town kids were getting ready to go to the houses of strangers
their parents have known for years
and ask for candy and make-uped smiles.
no one cared about the two dead boys wading through a knee-high sea of bright orange pumpkins;
no one gives a damn what ghosts do in october,
as long as they're not haunting them.

In the city of grief

  WolvesThere are birds here and they chatter about without a cause; loud and hungry and wanting and questioning in my ears and I can’t take it, I can’t take it.
All of it is just too loud.
I can’t hear where she is.
I muffle my breathing with my hands, but it does nothing to drown out the sound of the birds, the crickets, the sounds of the wind in the trees. It’s all just too much.
I sink down among the undergrowth, the remnants of summers and springs and lives long since past. I can feel the howling of the wolves that lived here once, the rusting of the deer. I hear them all and I am quiet.
She tells me we’re leaving.
I hold up the bundles of pine needles in my hands, dry and brown and weathered and I can’t imagine anything else. I make a nest in the ground, but it feels hollow now. I’m running on a clock I can’t keep track of; watching an hourglass that has no predictable end. The sand keeps running and running, but I’m promised a finite

Autumn Drop by Nitrok  05:43It awakes me with a twitch, one I think it regrets
and almost apologetic, it does not embrace
it simply affirms my presence here, and looks
a little pale, a little quiet
a little strained
but it disturbs me not, it's the ever and vague
and it is early, I understand
she is gone - with the rest, let us not, here
give a minute of longing
when we are ready at last to partake.
a while til sunrise then another til day
and together we wait, quiet and careful
to not afflict by awareness
the presence of each other, in this
pearl, this moment
which I appreciate now
more than ever. I think we care
for one another, maybe I am vain.
either way, it's not our purpose to complicate
with questions belonging to another
time, place. by the hour now
by the hour we'll fade
and then they'll come; those gildening
rays, the morning play
and perhaps you're delighted

 Doctor Who - 11th Doctor (2014) by scotty309  GraffitiHe took me on a cigarette run to the train tracks
in his not-girlfriend’s car.
I slipped past the growth he trampled
toward the underbelly of the bridge.
He asked me if I was wearing shorts
and I wasn’t.
From the struts, he hurled rocks like punctuation
to a breathless, incessant combustion.
—“People who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones.”
But I guess that makes me a hypocrite.
They echoed like gunfire
across graffiti-covered walls,
charting out adolescence,
and ricocheting off my ribs.
When I put my arm around him,
he felt like a landmine.
He was the train that rumbled by
and he said we were lucky it was on the other side.
Were we?
When I saw his eyes like
orphanages—I wanted to kiss him.
I didn’t.
We just sat there and waited for another train.


I hope you found something here to fall in love with and admire!  Please show your support by +faving or commenting on these beautiful pieces--and don't forget, I'm taking suggestions for pieces to feature in the future!

How to become a photographer.

Sat Apr 6, 2013, 3:44 AM

A photographer need attention, patience and curiosity. We call this set the maximum state of alertness, willingness to act but with inner peace. It is a physical and mental concentration, alertness, vigilance, the ability to instantly move to action. 

The problem is that the photographer has to work with the ultra-small segments of time, most often in the area of ​​1/200 second, and even 1/8000. It's amazing that our brains can work and respond in such time frames.

 So a good shot is almost always a chain of "saw-pressed the trigger," but "analyzed the dynamics, pulled the trigger."

With experience, you can analyze not only simple motion path but such complex processes as facial expressions

This state is a core skill of any photographer, and not related to his outside shooting temperament. Nervous and noisy photographer, in the moments when it is necessary will be in the same state: calm, focus and passion. And a lazy and apathetic person can be successful not only in the landscape, but also in sports photography. Maybe not a good example, timing in landscapes  is no less hard than in sport, but you know what I mean.

Based on his experience, the ability to take pictures is the ability to control attention, and even some time.

So, saying that the basis of photographic skill is the ability to create and maintain a certain state of attention. Using this condition, and having certain technical skills, improving communication skills and expand cultural knowledge, you can become a good photographer.

And photographers are divided into two types, good photographers, and not photographers.
