josephdunphy's Profile Picture
Joseph Dunphy
Artist | Hobbyist | Digital Art
United States

Me: Partially disabled unemployed Jewish Mathematician, who is broadening his horizons.

For now, pasties (not what you think) of my deviations are posted to a small journal on Xanga created primarily for that purpose, with an associated community on Mybloglog located here, as a substitute for an individual gallery feed. The bulk of my commentary will, however, be on my journal here on this site, which I've dubbed "Darkroom without Shadows", as most of what you see came out of a computer, not a vat of chemicals.

That's by necessity, not choice. Given the resources, I'd be playing around with the chemicals and seeing what I could do, but developing my own film in my own real darkroom is one of those pleasures I can't afford.

I am an absolute beginner at this sort of thing, and know that I have much to learn, but am glad to learn it. In addition to the photomanipulation, at some point in the not too distant future, I'll start posting short stories here. I think you'll find the style slightly different from the harsher realism I employ elsewhere, and that I'll be a lot less shy about wandering into speculative fiction (science fiction, fantasy, etc) than I would be on other sites.

Semi-important Links

Home - The homepage for my DeviantArt membership and associated pages, such as it is at the moment. Not much to see there, yet, but I've included this link for the sake of Webring navigability.

Return to Your Ring via Webring Webspace - any ring that one of my sites is on

Return to your ring via - Return through another copy of the blog homepage

Return to your ring via Blogger - another possibility, if should happen to be down, at the time.

Mybloglog Profile - Precursor to my Friendfeed page, located on a soon to be deleted site. Link will be removed in a few months.

Feedburner Subscription - get your site update notices by e-mail

My Google Profile - Introducing myself elsewhere, and future location of a menu of links to some of my pages hosted on the Google server. Or would that be a "sub-menu"?

My Tribe Profile - My home on another social networking site.

My Flickr Profile - Mainly more photomanipulation.

My Youtube Channel - Abstract animations, eventually, probably?

Panoramio - Photography of gardens, woods, nature, architecture, maybe a little very light food, all with locations listed, followed by some more flowers and trees. Ie. More of the same, usually without the use of Adobe.

My Page on WritersCafe - Science Fiction and Fantasy, probably, but definitely, this will mostly be fiction.

Wordpress Comments - Talking about some of the blogs I've found

Blogger Comments - Same idea, different hosting service

Looking for Rembrandt - My Upcoming Page. Activities I have planned, almost all of them in Chicago.

Developments - Real Time Photoblog

Shopping for Magpies - My Page on

Colour Lovers - My page on a social networking site that so far seems to be devoted to creating designs for Twitter profiles and other websites.

My DeviantArt Groups

Twitter - Momentary observations while I'm setting up my pages and wandering the net, with a companion microblog, on which site updates are tweeted.

My Disqus Profile - my profile on a comment hosting service

My IntenseDebate Profile - another service

My Typepad Profile - and another one

Current Residence: Chicago
Favourite genre of music: classical,jazz,blues
A site that you might want to look at, if you've been frustrated by the lack of a feed for your DeviantArt journal, is, where one can create a feed for a variety of sites. The process is not completely straightforward, but this article at Scripta Manent will explain all to those who approach it patiently. The only problem that I've had with my new feed so far is that it won't display on my MSN Livespace.

This makes a considerable difference, as I no longer am left in a position of asking my visitors to keep checking back for updates that are posted so infrequently. The new feed for this journal is found at…

The unofficial name for this journal, one which DeviantArt's system won't let me enter, is "Darkroom Without Shadows". I'll explain that, later.

Update, April 15, 2009

The feed has stopped working, but DeviantArt has finally decided to provide one of its own:…

It's not a satisfactory effort on DA's part - neither links nor spaces are successfully transmitted through the feed, which appears mangled when fed onto another site - but it's better than nothing. One can at least run a feed of just titles, automatically notifying readers of updates wherever that feed is seen.

At least there's that.

Update, August 11, 2009

This one is better - paragraph breaks do appear in this version of the feed.…
