He was an old man, in his eighties. I barely even knew him, he was an acquaintance of my parents. One way or another, he found out that I suffer from CFS (chronic fatigue syndrome, for those who don't know). He also knew that I loved to cycle, and how I couldn't do it very often because of the disorder. One day he phoned us, telling he had an electric bicycle he didn't use anymore. He wanted me to have it. My father asked what the price would be. 'We'll figure that out', he said. So we met him, and I made a little test drive. I loved it. When we talked to him, it became more and more clear that he didn't want to sell it, he wanted to give it to me. He even paid for the repairs. There were some tears in his eyes when he handed the bicycle to me.
Never have I fully realised how much this gift actually ment. Not just because an electric bicycle is very expensive, also because it gave me so many opportunities. Without it,
My lovely watchers : Part VIII-bHello and Happy New Year everyone!My lovely watchers : Part VIII-b7 months ago in Art Features More Like This
As fore mentioned in part one (or I guess it's technically part a) of my 2013 +watcher journal art features, I have split the (past) year's feature into a few parts. So to start the year off right, I would like to thank everyone who has had a stroke of fortunate insanity and decided to follow my gallery, and would like to continue my 2013 +watcher feature of some amazing art from their amazing galleries! It was an amazing journey through these galleries and I hope many others will love my findings as much as I did.

Can anyone else relate to this?When I was growing up, I didn't really know much about being popular or cliques or anything like that. In elementary school and middle school, you start to kind of realize what it's all about. There are cool kids, and then there's you, and you're just trying to figure out where you fit in.I learned a lot about acceptance and rejection,Those are the themes that you'll find spread throughout my music and weaved in throughout all of the lyrics. I really know what it's like to be accepted, and I also know what it's like to be rejected. And those are lessons I learned in Wyomissing."Can anyone else relate to this?1 year ago in Personal More Like This

All Snapped Up .17 ~ Nelleke~ An interview of a talented artist in our General Photography CommunityAll Snapped Up .17 ~ Nelleke7 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Tell us a bit about yourself, Nelleke! How did you get into photography and why?
Photography is a (big) hobby of mine, I’m not a professional photographer. I started photography seven years ago, just a little while after I joined deviantART. I used to draw a lot back then and that’s why I joined this site. I didn’t care much for photography, I cared about the fantasy genre: Photography was too ‘real’ for my taste. Drawing took me a LOT of time though… I’m a nitpicker, and they took me ages to complete, although unfortunately that wasn’t very visible in my drawings. I had gotten a small compact camera for my birthday, for taking holiday pictures. At some point I got so frustrated at drawing taking me so long that I tried taking some photos. I noticed how fast it was to take a picture of things

A bit more than 1 month until Christmas - time to announce my stuff
I really think some of those might be nice gifts - especially when it comes to print/gifts, which are not only originals with animal photos, but also USEFUL! Last year, I used donated points to order some of my stuff from DA, because I wanted to know the stuff I sell. I got 6 mugs and I was amazed with quality - I use them on daily basis and they are so cool! And I got also a calendar - and again, I can say the calendar's quality made me really happy, photos are sharp, colours are vivid and the format of calender allows you to note your own stuff into it
So I am definitely not ashamed to offer my stuff - I believe it can really make people happy
In this journal, I at first feature some of the stuff I sell - then I post a photo to show you, how those mugs really look like. The last photo set will show you, how d

Urban Exploration #8 "Urban explorers are a bit like children...if you tell them not to do something, they're going to do it anyway..."Urban Exploration #81 year ago in Art Features More Like This
This week, Urban Exploration has surprisingly been in the news a fair bit. With articles ranging from what it's all about to asking the public whether urban explorers pose a threat to national security. For something that is secretive, for the most part, and often overlooked and not thought of, there has been a fair bit of discussion! There is also an article claiming that Urban Exploration Photographs Pose a Security Risk. Admittedly, I can see a bit of where they're coming from but honestly, the whole thing is a bit hyped up. What are your thoughts on this? Are you an Urban Explorer that doesn't consider themselves a security risk? Or are you a bystander that think
DD for some of you :)Hi!DD for some of you :)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
At first, there is a new kiriban: catch my 955 555 pageviews and send me a printscreen via note as a proof to win a feature
No feature for animal cruelty or porn, thanks for understanding.
At second, no, I did not get any DD (only one - bur many years ago buhhehehhehe )
But I have suggested many deviations for DD and I was disappointed when I got no reply and those deviations have not been accepted I think some of those artists created absolutely incredible work and they definitely deserve more attention.
Today, I will show you some of the deviations I have suggested (or plan to suggest) for DD, but which have not been noticed or accepted by admins, which made me really sad and disappointed. DA has some rules for featuring a deviation as a DD, it says that suggested artist should not have a DD yet, it should not be very famous artist and it should include some info about a subject in the descriptions. Those artists followed the rules, but their art has not

So thank you, Photography, for truly teaching me how to make a difference between good and bad people.
And from now on, I'm taking the photos I want to take. And no one will ever take my passion away from me.
