Oh, we are so happy. About a year ago, we were forced to re-home him. He went to a nice family in Chicago. Just the other day, I received an email from the shelter we had adopted him from, saying that someone up in Chicago found him running the north side and picked him up.
He was scanned and traced back. He's in great condition and very well behaved. Unfortunately, I lost the information of his new family. The people who picked him up were very kind, but could only hold on to him for one night, and they would turn him over to Chicago ACC. He'd have been euthanized after three days. So, they brought him back here to us. Were so happy to have him back in our lives and after he escaped his fate twice, he's here to stay for now.
It's amazing he wasn't snatched up for fighting. Pit bulls and Chicago don't mix. He's safe, though and was being a very lazy Pibble today when I snapped this shot. :3
I think it's not the best photo of mine because on that day unluckily a nasty mist came and... ruined a few of photos' quality of details. And SLT camera is very sensetive for details, if something goes wrong, like any motion blur or mist- it ruins the quality of details, unlike DSLR cameras. I tried my best to not play too much with ISO settings for misty weather. Oh well. There are just too many pros and cos with SLT and DSLR cameras. Next time I'll go with DSLR, despite that I'll mist amazing, perfect AF and it's speed.
It's that legendary Iditarod 1000 mile sled dog race which I've witnessed for couple days. As I've been in many mushing events mostly in Europe and significant ones.... I will say that the experience of Iditarod is so unique... the best mushing even I've ever seen. Honestly, obviously I was fascinated to see that race but not at cost of my more important priors. Like it wasn't "oh a must to see" for me. But I got a blessing opportunity to go... with all my hard work, smart planning and organizing and all of it is because of my photography job. I'm doing a photographic coverage for Europe. I thought that woud be very worthy experience for me with my travel reports career which I'm dreaming to do since my art pathway does not seems to work well for me. Anymore.
That was the first day of race, known as Ceremonial Start. Lucky people (who can afford 500$+ to seven thousands of dollars) to win auction and get a place on ride on Iditarod mushers sled dogs.... no, I wouldn't call them lucky but peopl who worked hard (edit: at the first I used wrong wording, I meant: worked hard, not hardly working) for that money to realize their little or big dream to be on a ride on Iditarod race. I hate calling that people are lucky to do something. I respect every person's work and it's part of some kind of work. No matter what is that kind of work but they did something to achieve for sure. Maybe we can use the term of "lucky" because they were born at rich family or got wealthy partner but I am not really sure about that anyway...
Also I'd like to mention that Iditarod race was the hardest mushing event that I've ever photographed. It was so crowded that I don't even. Gladly I had media ID, it helped a lot... but there were situations where it didn't help *stares at mad and crazy media photographers* and as well that "fun" with checkpoints which gives a hell headache.
Anyway, I'm saying - really, it's really worthy to visit the Iditarod race. Go for it if you have a chance to do. Especially if you are a big fan of mushing or are musher, to experience it from 6 am how whole Alaska is waking up for that dreamy race- it feels like a dream.
PS: I feel like deviantART is dropping down quality of art/photograph submitter there...? Or it's just me..?
Humans are everywhere. You can go nowhere anymore without us being in the way. To see the world again how it once was, free of obstructions ... that would be a sight to behold. I wonder what Ferdinand Magellan or James Cook would've said had they seen such a horizon.

Here's a little, lonely tree being surrounded by overwhelming spirits of Universe. That photo is portraying a transition between of our real, living world and afterlife, antimatter life. A tree is an existence. An existence like every one of us and every living animal. However we all carry a powerful energy that streams a life in that "matter" world, which is on Earth.
Every living thing does matter here. We are being taught to be like an "ant" of the system, not being aware of our potential.
Lifestream is my favorite concept idea from Final Fantasy 7 about the life that could be used as a metaphor about moving energy, potential and so on Seeing Northern Lights for me feels like facing with amazing energy of Lifestream being unleashed.
It would be a real dream come true to travel in these difficult conditions and to represent Poland and all those who feel that they cannot overcome the struggles they are faced with, and to inspire everyone that no matter how hard and painful things in life can be.
One of my series of experimental or quick paintings of wolves. I did a lot of various wolf paintings for the protecting wolves organizations/sanctuary, so I thought to put some of them online and sell.
The original watercolour & pencil painting, 30x26 cm is for sale.

Here is the Tardis sign from the Doctor Who show, large enough to be printed so you can place it wherever you want (on a door for example). Caution : be warned that posting this on a door does not make the room bigger on the inside than on the outside.

What? A non-nature photo from *billyunderscorebwa? This is absurd, I know Took this photo back in late August while shooting our high school's first game of the season (for yearbook). We lost this game, but believe it or not, we went on to become state champions! Not sure how many yearbook-related photos I'll end up posting since I'm not completely satisfied with most of them. Probably won't put this one in the yearbook (since there's not enough "action") but I really like the composition, so I'm posting it here
There is that lingering doubt that always casts shadows as we cruse the highways and listen to "Bad To The Bone."Thousands of miles he's travelled Let there be many more to come Before the final judgement day When we all ride to the Son.
I got to talk to his owner at the dog park, and he said their a rare breed here. He has a rescue Tibetan at home, she is blind now so he doesn't bring her. He got Zak as a puppy, after he grew over the breed standard...by 2 inch. This dog had me captivated the whole time, the way he moves is just beautiful, and his personality is adorable.
