Journal History

Inspiring works of 2018

Journal Entry: Sun Dec 30, 2018, 4:55 PM
It looks like a crazy year is coming to its end.
Global warming. Insects dying. Animals disappearing. Trump. Bolsonaro. Right-wing populism. Rising inequality.
These are just some of the events/persons that could be a major threat to the survival of the planet.

On the other hand, it hasn't been all bad:
Worldwide: Less infant mortality, fewer people living in absolute poverty, increasing awareness of women's rights. The COP24 in Katowice committed to verify measures reducing CO2 emissions.
Domestically: The Democrats recapturing the House of Representatives.

On a personal note, thanks to :iconkiarablackphotograph: I have just been promoted to founder of :icongermanphotographers:
Thus, I would like to encourage all German-speaking artists to join this group and carry it to new heights.
In the near future I will invite a few people to join our admin team.

The pictures below are the ones that have inspired and moved me the most in 2018. These works of art have made my year a little more bearable.
Many thanks to the artists for sharing.

To all of my friends, supporters and followers, I wish you a peaceful and happy year 2019.

Having gone through my archives, I have discovered a number of photos that are older, but worth uploading, at least in my mind. During the next few days, I will post those images here.

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??!!
