La forza della maternita' by SenhArt

Fri Aug 17, 2018, 9:31 AM

A self-portrait of mother and child.


Steve's suggestions on how to leave a good comment...
  1. Tell the artist what caught your eye, something your particularly liked or didn't like.
  2. Tell the artist something you think they could have done differently or better.
  3. Suggest an alternate title; it tells the artist what you saw in the image.
  4. Interact with the artwork, continue its story.
  5. Ask the artist how or why they did something.
  6. If nothing else, even "Ooh, pretty!" or "Oh, ick!" is a lot more information than no comment at all.

FAQ #18: Who selects Daily Deviations and how are they chosen?

Because it's past time for white-haired white men to stand up and say it.

The Heidelberg Catechism , written in 1563, remains a warm-hearted and personal statement of the Christian faith. It begins thusly...

What is your only comfort in life and in death?

That I am not my own,
but belong--
    body and soul,
    in life and in death--
    to my faithful Savior Jesus Christ.
He has fully paid for all my sins with his precious blood,
and has set me free from the tyranny of the devil.
He also watches over me in such a way
that not a hair can fall from my head
without the will of my Father in heaven:
in fact, all things must work together for my salvation.

Because I belong to him,
Christ, by his Holy Spirit,
assures me of eternal life
and makes me wholeheartedly willing and ready

On the eve of their 18th birthday, the folks here appear to have lost track of the dA mascot, Fella. Silly people, he's been sitting in my study for years. So here he is.Img 20180805 172742 531 by pearwood
Gradually filling in the gaps in my photo-a-day challenge inspired by my dear Nina Mrs-Durden.
30 day challenge: A Day In Your Life
Hey everyone!
I'm happy to announce a new photography contest for you all to partake in. This contest is a bit different than what you're used to seeing from me. It's not necessarily focusing on the superb quality of the photographs you take but rather moreso on your ability to tell a story through images. I hope this encouraged you to join in on this contest even if you're not a photographer! 
The Prompt:
For this contest, you will need to tell a story about yourself or about your life by taking 1 photo per day for the span of 30 days. At the end of the 30 days when your 30 photographs are assembled together some form of story or narrative.
How do I tell a story about myself or about my life through photographs? The aim here is for us to have an idea of your day-to-day life, in the end the "story" is just your life. Every day, have your phone or your camera ready, and capture a 'moment' that you think either best
Photo a day challenge inspired by Mrs-DurdenJuly 24: My cameras ganged up on me and informed me my 36-day photo-a-day challenge would involve all of them. Which means I did manage to start on Sunday, July 15. Pictures forthcoming as I get them developed and scanned.
July 14: Tomorrow I am starting a 36-day challenge inspired by Nina Mrs-Durden. I loaded a 36-exposure roll of #IlfordDelta400 in the #OlympusOM2. For the next five weeks I will take exactly one photograph with that camera about my everyday life. We will see the results in August.
For you digital folks, head on over and check out Nina's challenge:

July 15 - Day 0 - Yashica-D at Rochester Christian Reformed Church

July 16 - Day 1 - Olympus OM-2 at home - crucifix in window
July 17 - Day 2 - Ondu 135 faceoff with Olympus OM-2

July 18 - Day 3 - Ondu 135 at Letchworth State Park

July 19 - Day 4 -
