That strange place, so distant, yet so close to my heart. Buildings as tall as mountains.
Dead structures, watching with dead eyes. Empty, vast and endless honeycombs of stone and steel. Air filled with gray ashes, always fluttering from the cloudy sky.
The black vortex opens up in the sky, descending down to the city. The vortex spiral rips the city apart, bending the air itself, feasting on light, feasting on time.
There is a lonely figure standing in the street.
No matter how hard I try to make out his or her expression, I cannot. Is there no face there at all? Or perhaps there is a million human faces there, intertwined and flickering in unison, as bright as the light of ten thousand suns?
The being stares into the abyss of the vortex.
It takes another step towards it, into the horizon of nothingness, into a place where nothing can exist.
The stones of the roadway beneath its feet crumble and flutter in t

The chaptered comic strip, has been collected into a 100-page graphic novel – and to the still-uninitiated:
It is not quite like anything you’ve probably ever seen before. The story follows “Zee Captain” and his sidekicks as they amble through a post-apocalyptic landscape. And while that hardly seems new and different, it’s the unusually superlative graphic quality of the comic cells and the Monty Pythonesque dialogues and leaps of logic that can become quite mesmerizing. Zee Captain, his face hidden by a gas mask that gives him a Darth Vaderish look, wears what looks like a Soviet Red Army uniform from WWII, and the strip does have nourish WWII feel.

I always thought Thoreau’s comment was simply a word game— ultimately not of much value and false at its core. A Valentines Day in solitude should mean being all alone and alone means being unhappy, pure and simple. Still, it will turn out in life that the most alone we can feel is ironically in the crush of family and friends and even in the embrace of one’s Valentines Day companion— but lost and unfulfilled in one’s dreams and visions.

People, it is spring and wild animals have babies.
PLEASE! If you find some baby animals in the wild, do NOT come close to them, and ABSOLUTELY do NOT touch them!
Baby animals often seem to be abandoned, but in fact, they do what they are supposed to do: they hide in the grass without moving, waiting for their mother, who is in fact close to them. Baby deers, baby rabbits and another animals do NOT stay with their moms all the time! Their moms feed themselves and then they come to their babies to feed them with milk.
IF YOU TOUCH THOSE BABIES, mothers are scared by human scent, leaving the babies to die!
Every year, workers of all stations for handicated animals are sad and frustrated, because people bring baby animals to them, saying ,,I found this baby deer in grass, it was so alone." If those people saw those babies and went away without touching

CHOICE. You don't have to be a Catholic. You have that choice of the worst misogynistic homophobic Pope having little to no impact on your life directly. You don't have that choice with government. Your vote has an approximately 0.00000% chance of changing the outcome of an election, so you do not choose your president, your peers do. You just have to live with that choice, and whatever policies it may bring with it. It's also not very practical to move away to escape the authority that's claimed over you just to land yourself in an area of another similar authority.
POWER. Even if you are a Catholic, the Pope can't throw you in jail for not following the rules and commands no enforceable authority over you. Suppose the bad pope says that gays should be stoned to dea

But it's so mundane, and boring - right? Who cares about dirty little children dying in dirty little countries you can't even locate on the map. Almost nobody. This is not a rhetorical question, or speculation - it's a statement of fact. You don't really care, and I

Why we choose to PhotographI used to see people in the street, that I'd either had to spend some time giving personal care to (because I used to be a support worker) or that I'd spent time mentoring because they had been released from prison having been convicted of sex offenses. Since becoming a Photographer, I now see people in the street whom I shared their Wedding with, capturing every precious moment. Or the young couple whose baby I photographed last year. Or, the couple whose wedding and newborn shoot I did, because they chose me on both occasions. That is pretty much - why Photography is a gift and why it's such a huge honour to be able to document these things. In amongst the flowers, the landscapes, the teacups hanging in trees, the pets, the weather and the sunsets - is the ability to capture a moment that means the world to so many people. Isn't that just a fantastic feeling?Why we choose to Photograph in Personal More Like This

Photography Troubleshooting: The Watermark FAQ"How do I protect my photography and art in general?"Photography Troubleshooting: The Watermark FAQ in Editorials More Like This
"As =Eitvys200 pointed out, at least 1 journal per month makes it to the top of the list and is about stealing art. Sometimes this is something small such as posting a piece to facebook, other times you see hoards of pieces on a website selling wallpapers or something similar. Regardless of how it happens, or where, it can hurt just as much to see your hard work disregarded and especially someone else profiting or taking credit.
Protecting work is a huge deal for some people, and not for others. It depends entirely on your outlook - how you view your work and indeed whether or not there needs to be some constrictions on it due to the content being a child, or family member. But how do we protect our work properly from art theft and wrongful use? The simple answer is you can't provide for every eventuality. Even if you upload your work to a website where right click -> copy is disabled,
Ten Top Tips for Photography Assistants1) Network, like crazy!Ten Top Tips for Photography Assistants in Photography More Like This
Talking to other assistants, getting your name around, building a website, a facebook page, twitter...networking on and off line is key to developing your name and yourself as a well known local and even global photographer. Hello deviantART!
2) Be Professional
Dress smartly, but not too smartly (gauge the job). Keep your phone away (it's not your camera on this occasion) and be polite. You're an assistant, but you need to act like the main photographer.
3) Learn 'on the job' as well as from the 'book.'
Learning Photography at College or Uni is great. But unless you put theories and motions into practice, you're not going to cut it. Don't do everything by the book, but remember that the book is there if you need it. Photography, true pure honest and emotive Photography, cannot be learned in a classroom.
4) Research your Photographer
The Artists Toolbox: Photography StudiosHearing the word studio makes me think of expensive rooms with top of the range equipment, fantastic lighting and only professional awesome photographers inside of it. In reality however, you can create a Photography studio for just about any type of Photography and it doesn't have to cost very much.The Artists Toolbox: Photography Studios in Community Relations More Like This
The Macro Studio
Macro Photography can be undertaken pretty much anywhere, but sometimes you just want to shoot something in a neutral environment with a plain, unobtrusive backdrop. Many photographers shy away from doing this because they think it's too complicated - actually you would be doing yourself a favour if you did try it, it can really help improve your work.
For starters, you don't even have to have expensive flash. You could use any lamp that you can easily move around, to give a bit of light into your mini studio. You also need a couple of sheets of card or paper, and a cardboard box. The sizing is completely up to you and up to the size of the o
Photography Troubleshooting: Understanding ISOHeader created by ~TouchedDPhotography Troubleshooting: Understanding ISO in Community Relations More Like This
=TheGalleryOfEve asked recently about SLR settings and in particular, a troubleshooting article focusing on ISO. So here it is! Hopefully this article will help you to understand ISO better, whether a beginner or not.
What Is ISO?
ISO within traditional photography, was an indication of how sensitive a film was to light. Within digital photography it measures the sensitivity of the image sensor. Basically, the lower the number then the less your camera is sensitive to light. Higher ISO numbers are generally used in dark situations to get faster shutter speeds but this can often mean that your shots are noisier. ISO 100 is the most widely used and gives crisp shots with little to no grain. Shooting in automatic means that the camera will select the appropriate ISO for the situations that you are facing, and work out the rest for you to reduce noise as much possible. But it's when you start getting more technical and
