Journal History


Worries of a lioness
This is one of the first photos I took on our last day of this year's journey to Southern Africa. It is one of my personal favorites from this trip.

Two days earlier, this graceful lioness "One Eye" One Eye by NB-Photo was making out with "Charmer Boy" Fortissimo by NB-Photo Feline ecstasy by NB-Photo
Today, she was moving quietly and unhurriedly through the tall grass.
I don't know what was going through her head, but she seems to exude sadness and a deep sense of worry.
Even though she may have just thought about where and how to get her next meal, it is this kind of emotion that goes through MY head when I think about the future of the species, which is in deep trouble almost all over Africa.

Random Notes

4 June, 2012:
It's been one year ago today that I submitted my first photograph. I am thoroughly enjoying my activities here, and I am particularly glad about discovering great artwork. Although I don't have the time anymore to respond to each and every favorite, I am very grateful to all of you, and I'm trying to at least reply to all your comments.

28 September, 2012:

20,000+ favorites since I posted my first photograph back in June of 2011! A good reason to be happy and to celebrate. I would like to thank all of my watchers and friends here on dA for their continued interest and support.

15 January, 2013:

Now here's a mystery: I have a photo in my gallery that is entitled "Two Jaguars in Love" Two jaguars in love by NB-Photo that, as of yesterday, had accumulated 227 favorites and had been downloaded 78 times. Today I got notified that, after a seemingly long time, this photo has attracted another favorite, so the count went up to 228. However, at the same time the download count increased to 203!!! Assuming that dA's counting procedures work properly, that suggests that 125 people downloaded my photograph, but only 1 (one) of them picked this as a favorite. Isn't that odd???
I would completely understand that blatant discrepancy if this was some kind of (semi-)pornographic shot, because in that case, who would want to admit to the fact that they picked this as a favorite (for everyone else out there to verify). But hey, this is just wildlife photography. Maybe someone can enlighten me??!!

Excuse me but I have just been excluded from the group for daring to make a criticism,
I can not even answer, I'm finding this fascist attitude.
NB-Photo Featured By Owner Feb 19, 2018  Hobbyist Photographer
I'm sorry to hear that. It is true that I also voted NO on one of your recent pictures. But I have nothing whatsoever against members who dare to speak up and criticize our decision, as long as it's respectful.
But let me ask you this:
Why post this comment on my profile?
Do you know for a fact that it was me who blocked you? It wasn't!
Don't you think the term fascism should be reserved for something far more serious?
In the meantime let me see what I can do to reinstate you.
Mavricot Featured By Owner Feb 20, 2018  Hobbyist Digital Artist
No, i'm blocked on :

That's why I'm talking to you.
Indeed, I got a little carried away, frustrated at not being able to answer.
Do not reinstate me, I wanted to inform you of bad practices on the part of one of your members.
