Alright, anyone still around? If so, sorry for being AWOL for a while. Things sometimes just drift away silently and then a month has passed, blink once and it's a year. That's how it happens. I'm still around though. And I'll sail this 'ol ship until the violins start to play. DeviantArt has turned into a bit of a ghost-town in the last few years in terms of photography - lots of groups dying out, whole categories being (Whatever happened to "Darkroom"?) removed and people simply opting to choose the 'gram over this leafy green dinosaur to upload their content.  I myself have indulged in uploading my stuff elsewhere first and foremost. But time and time again a select few of them would land on dA as well. Since I've recently been to New York again and have some output to show for it, I decided to start uploading stuff on a more frequent basis. Wonder if there's still a few of you out there who wanna share their impressions of this great city.

I mean, it's not like New York's ever not a thing. It's one of the most vibrant and fascinating places in the world and has shutterbugs pining for its sheer beauty each and every day. If any of them are still active on dA remains to be seen, but might as well try. Decaying phantom groups in all their dire sadness are so passé, they had their New York minute.

Here's to hoping, here's to a new start. If you have any pictures you wanna share, don't hesitate to submit them to this group (Make sure to upload them in the right folder though, makes sorting things a bit easier for me, thanks.). I'll be more active again and tend to all new submissions. If you've uploaded anything during the time of my absence and it got rejected due to a nasty timeout, feel free to submit it again. Peace and have a good one!

- Ben
