The World of Macro (Bring back Macro)
This news’s article not only serves to feature some amazing macro deviations, but as a petition to bring back the Photography> Macro category!!! If you want this category back, then please :+fav: this article, and let’s show the administrator’s of DA just how many deviant’s are devoted to bringing this category back!!!
Months ago the ”Macro” category mysteriously disappeared off of Deviant Art, many were annoyed, shocked and furious to say the least. So why did DA decide to take away an extremely popular category? And more importantly…what other categories will they take away next????!?? Macro photography deserves it’s own category, it is in a class of it’s own! Macro photography let’s us view the world differently, and allows us to see things like we’ve never seen before! After being introduced to macro photography, my vision of the world began to transform. It’s important that macro photography doesn’t just blend into t

Ten Rides
Every bus pass came with ten rides, and she remembered every one of them.  She hardly ever caught buses, finding them too claustrophobic, and so each time she did it stuck in her memory, as sticky and shiny as a piece of glitter that would not go away.  
She much preferred walking.  She could get almost anywhere she wanted this way, and it was a lot cheaper.  But one day she needed to catch a bus to the other side of town, too far away to travel by foot.  She missed her bus at first, and had to wait for another hour at the bus stop for the next one to arrive.  It was blisteringly hot summer weather, and she cursed the idea of public transport as her skin darkened and her nose burnt.  When the bus finally pulled up it was smelly and sweaty, and the open windows did little but push hot air through her damp hair.  She arrived at the shopping centre when it was close to closing anyway, four o'clock and ticking onwards.  She decided to walk home, and by the time she was turning the key in t

Toilet Humour
There is something to be said for graffiti found in toilet cubicles.  And I mean real toilet graffiti, not just the uninspired tags that rebellious teenagers scribble across walls.  Real graffiti that has absolutely no artistic merit (that stuff is saved for the bus interchanges), and is usually witty.  Mostly wryly-observed commentary about today's social standards.
That, or toilet humour.  But it's understandable.  
To tell you the truth, though, I think graffiti has been going downhill since the '80s.  Oh, sure, street art has flourished, but it seems nowadays that people are quite happy to bitch about the world's problems in public, instead of saving them for a quiet moment in the public loo with a permanent marker.
But, if we're being serious here for a moment, it's rather pathetic the obsession I have with graffiti in public toilets.  I'm a 20-something who thinks that toilet humour is funny.  I don't actually vandalise myself (I'm much too respectable for that) but the witticism

I think I'm going to return to dA and post some pics... soon.  But not yet.  I have some things to do first, and I can't let my temptation to share my art interrupt these things.

So, sorry dA, but you've gotta be added to my StayFocusd blocklist for now.  Maybe I'll see ya on the weekend~! :)
