My Bio

Hi, I'm Derek Harrison, an amateur photographer, photomanipulator, digital abstract artist and former globetrotter.

Circumstances unfortunately dictate that I don't get to do any photography these days but I continue to submit from my vast collection of photographs from the last 40+ years along with my latest passions of photomanipulation and digital abstract paintings.

If anyone wishes to use any of my submissions to create a work of their own on DA then please feel free to do so. All I ask is that you give me credit and a link to my original.

Nothing could give me greater pleasure than to announce that this week’s randomly selected featured deviant is wotawota, aka Ota, a photographer, digital artist, Nipponophile and tea lover living in the Czech capital of Prague who is now in his 8th year on DeviantArt on his current account, and his 11th year in total. Ota is one of my very best friends on DeviantArt, who has given me the most tremendous support since I joined in January 2018 and who I have been watching since very soon after that date. It is especially fortuitous that he should be chosen this week as he has not been too well lately, so I hope this humble feature of your wonderful works cheers you up a little my dear friend! I have selected these 24 deviations from random points in time throughout Ota’s gallery of over 2,100 deviations. I’m sure that many of my watchers will be familiar with him and his works, but if by some chance you are not then I urge you to pay Ota a visit, enjoy his creations and send him some

Showcasing the 24 deviations currently residing on Page 3 of my Featured Favourites collection. For the second successive week these have all been gathered only recently in August 2022. And it is also the second time that Page 3 has been chosen, but of course the contents are very different to those of Week 21, such is the ever-changing nature of these pages. I hope that you find something new to delight and inspire you!

This week my Wednesday feature is two days late on a Friday - blame my employers! It showcases the 24 deviations from Page 23 of my gallery, originally submitted in October 2021. Quite fortuitous because it therefore includes some of my #Pictober21 submissions, and #Pictober22 kicks off tomorrow. I hope you enjoy this blast from the past! My personal favourite? Well I have to stick with the Pictober theme and say the friendly Yibin Porter. What about you?
