I can tell you that I took them down after reading the news of the acquisition of DeviantArt by Wix. Apparently they bought dA for 36M $, you don't do that without an agenda to make more.
In the interest of protecting my friends who have been depicted and also copyright, I have made the photographs unavailable. Maybe this is temporary, who knows, but some of you are likely to remember other copyright scandals in art sharing-sites. Until I know more about the changes and their m.o. I will not upload anything here. Wix makes a large part of its revenue from tracking user data over parallell platforms, an idea I thoroughly dislike, even if it seems to become increasingly ubiquitous - that does however not mean that we have to take it.
If anyone of you out there should be particularly "verklempt" over some photo being taken down, then send me a message and I might send you a copy.
I guess we'll see what happens with dA..
