I remember when I first came to Deviantart 9 years ago...I had no idea at all what this place would eventually mean to me.
I was a new Photographer, mostly as a hobby then. I had a strong interest in Photoshop too.
I don't even know what I was looking for when I signed up here but what I found has helped to shape me not only as a photographer but as a person as well.
I have met friends here, real friends that I am still friends with today.
I look back at my Journal entries and its like taking a step back in time...I see posts about my daughter she was 2 years old when I first came here, she is 11 now. I see posts about my cat Mikey, my best friend, he was 4 years old then and he is 13 now. I have lost animal friends along this way and it's all here and I have lost human friends and that is all here as well.
It is like having a memory book, a visual one but this book is different because I can see all of the support that I received along the way
