The Trading Post
08.12.18. Now that the Trading Post has been operating for exactly a month, we'll be making some changes in response to some problems that have arisen since it's introductions. Comments can no longer be edited after a certain amount of time, so we ask that you post ONE strudel per comment, so that you can hide the comments after it has been traded off. Posting multiple in the same comment causes confusion if you cannot hide just one strudel in particular. ALSO if your strudel is not on the masterlist, please post to the Can't find your strudel? entry on the StrudelCupboard (https://www.deviantart.com/strudelcupboard) to help us find any missing babies! We're super quick about updating!

I truly can't believe it has been three years since I've posted anything on this site. I never meant to stop, it just sort of...happened. I just wanted to give a quick update of what's going on in my world.

I am 25.
I purchased a Nikon D7000 in June of 2013.
I am (almost) finished with my masters in teaching.
I am teaching 7th/8th grade language arts and social studies starting in September.
I live near Seattle with my boyfriend, my cat Flo, and our pit bull Shelby (adopted February 2013).
Right now, I mostly take pictures when I'm out in nature, which I try to do as much as possible. Life is busy.

I have a store of photos that I've taken over the past three years, and I do plan on uploading more throughout the summer.

I know many of you I once knew are probably not around, but thank you for being a part of my journey.

-Aimee

Interestingly enough, I took a similar length hiatus from posting to this site as well.

For the sake of fairness:
I'm 32.
I purchased a Canon 700D/T5i last night that I will hopefully will receive at some point this weekend *super excited* (was given a rebel xti by a friend who upgraded in 2012ish, bought a rebel xt in 2008)
I decided to skip university and independently study and work as a computer service technician, support consultant, and sales associate for about 10 years and nailed myself a technical consultant position with a local university about a year and a half ago.
I live in CT with my Wife (got married over this past summer), daughter, and son.

I'm very familiar with how busy life can get.  I take photos when I can, typically nature, but shooting my children is good fun from time to time as well.  I also plan to do some video work (nerd podcasting, maybe try my hand at some short films).
I too have a small store of photos (most of which could use some post production work and i'm lazy)... if I find something that I think is worthy of DA's attention somewhere in the giant pile of useless frames, I'll certainly post it as I come across it.

While it's been quite a while since I've frequented this site, I remember that I used to enjoy viewing your photographic creations on a regular basis and hope to do so again.

Welcome back!
I did the same thing. I came back to use this as another platform for people to see my art. This site helped me sell my work internationally so I thought "Why not?"
Oh 7th & 8th graders. Can't turn your back for a minute. lol I did some substituting and I loved and disliked that group.
