Black and White!
Black. Only. I'm emo...
There's no Black and White! It's achromatic! Ignorants...
I'd like one color-keyed, please.
I shot only RAW and do demoisaicing by hand.
Duotones on barite - I have the best of both worlds.

:pointr:How long have you been on DeviantArt?

Since 3rd March 2001, 14 years and then some.

:pointr:What does your username mean?

Let's say it's connected to angelology. That's enough for you to know. ;)

:pointr:Describe yourself in three words.

Eccentric Wandering Photographer.

:pointr:Are you left or right handed?

South–paw! That is: left handed.

:pointr:What was your first deviation?

Here: Travellers-Spheroids by rehael — made in POV-Ray and Gimp. Oooold times…

:pointr:What is your favourite type of art to create?

Photography, obviously.

:pointr:If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?

Traditional drawing and paiting. The old masters knew how to captivate attention.

:pointr:What was your first favourite?

The Perfumed Garden by burning-giraffe

:pointr:What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?

I think it's photography, and a close second place is for digital deviations.

:pointr:Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?

Frankly, I have no idea. I think I don't have one all–time favourite artist. It'd be… limiting?

:pointr:If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?

Everyone from my devWATCH of course! :D

:pointr:How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?

The whole community is impacting me, by constantly inspiring me, tutoring, evoking emotions…

:pointr:What are your preferred tools to create art?

Any photosensitive element with a nice optically perfect piece of glass in front of it.

:pointr:What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?

Place doesn't matter — it's who I'm with what matters. And she is all that matters for me. :love:

:pointr:What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?

Seriously, I can't limit it to one memory! But ok, you want one memory? Here is it: joining DeviantART, long time ago, when it was all about skinning applications, the community was small, but growing quickly.

Ok, one more memory — you're in my mind every time I create something, because a big part of what I do, and how I do it came from this community, from othr deviants, from comments, from looking at other deviations… Stay devious, friends!

My deviantART Story? Well, it was long, long time ago, March 3rd 2001 to be exact, the day I landed here. Origins? Customize, LiteStep and so on. But I was a lurker then. It changed a bit when I made my first :+fav:The Perfumed Garden by burning-giraffe
The Perfumed Garden by burning-giraffe

But one of the first deviations I remember the most is Other's Cinderellas Dreams by NaIniE — I'm still in awe that this beautiful image was created with only a mouse and not a tablet.
::Other Cinderella's Dreams:: by NaIniE

There are deviations where the image is strong, but the description can simply blow your mind — it was the case when I stumbled upon The Logic of Crocodiles by fetology101.

How could I forget about Pinup superhero by ladymorgana — a signed version with #2 edition number owned by me.

And when you spend too much time in the dark corners of dA, what's better to shine some light than a bunch of Phausis Reticulata with lovely SusanCoffey?

I always knew that The've lied to us all [by jjnaas], but then dt happened and we got a glimpse of the inner workings of devART.
They've lied to us all along.. by jjnaas

I will always remember fondly the :devdeviantartgear: — especially the Artists United shirt with design from reyjdesigns
 1680x1050 DA Wallpaper by reyjdesigns Semi-Finalist: 'Da Design 2' by deviantWEAR
…proudly wearing it on the first World Dev Meet in Warsaw as you can see in the shot here — far right (by EagleEye666666): DevMeet Warsaw VII by EagleEye666666

Here I have also found my ultimate wall paper, beautiful Synergy by OmeN2501.

Oh, I think I've put more than five deviations here, so let me close with just a few more — my beloved Izabella as depicted by MuluC85, based on a photo I took:
Izabella by MuluC85 Steam Memories: Glamour by rehael 

And closing, together to the end by inismonaphotography

…together, to the end, just like with deviantART — as I think this site is now part of my DNA. I might be silent, not post much, not comment much, observe dArama from a distance, but I feel like home here.

…but I completely forgot to update galleries here. I'll try to change that and push some new works this weekend, so… stay tuned! :)

In the meantime: you can check my Facebook (I don't have a fanpage).
