As I keep coming back to DA over and over again, I decided to write a new journal entry. I still love to walk down memory lane here and look at older deviations. Nowadays I'm also into other sites and communities like Flickr, 500px and Instagram. But do you know what I liked at DA 14 years ago that I can't find on the other sites today?

I'm not that social.
I have to watch TV.
I need to hang around at Facebook at the same time.
It is too dangerous.

Hab schon gesehen, danke dir :)

Ich habe nur selten das Vergnügen gehabt, durch die Fotogalerie von jemandem bis zur letzten Seite zu blättern. Diese Freude ist mir mit Ihnen widerfahren. Vielen Dank auch für die Anzeige der Exif-Daten, damit Leute wie ich weiter lernen können. Schließlich stimme ich dem zu, was Sie in Ihrem Post über den Zerfall von Deviantart sagen. Ich wünsche Ihnen ein schönes Wochenende!

Das ist ein hohes Lob! Danke für die ganzen Favorites. Ich freue mich, dass ich dir mit den Einstellungen auch ein Stück helfen kann. Zum Schluss dir ebenfalls ein schönes Wochenende :)

Your pictures are very beautiful, many thanks for share.

Thanks for faving!
