Trying to Clear My Mind
Invisible until,
a smile seen through a window.
A bright light ensnaring a moth.
Handsome, quiet mystery.
Many reasons to walk away,
but... a puzzle and I reluctantly,
obsessed. Trying to turn away,
but piqued by music, art, creativity!
Just let it go, let it go,
why can't I let it go. Filled with curiosity.
The best way out is through.
Must unravel the mystery.

Devil and the Deep Blue Sea
His breath smelled of fresh strawberries, she could taste them.
Eyes wide in startled realization as he shoved her off the cliff
the sea whirling below, foaming against the rocks.
Time stopped it seemed, the fall was taking forever.
She saw it all then, the deception, the denial.
Long last it came, water rising up to greet her.
Last second she could feel the waves licking her body.
all she could see was clouds, the only sound his voice.
She was between the devil and the deep blue sea.
Her laughter at the thought, the last sound as she drowned.

Project Educate Focus: Humor, Fireworks, and Misc
Some photography galleries on dA are "higher profile" than others. Humor, fireworks (esp since this is a new gallery), and Miscallaneous are some of the small galleries on dA that don't receive a lot of attention but hide inside their coffers amazing gems of photography. This article will shine a light on those precious gems and hopefully we can all learn a thing or two about them together.
Humorous Photography Gallery

This poor gallery is one of the most highly misunderstood and "mis-posted to" galleries I've encountered on dA.
The gallery description says "Photographs meant to make us laugh, including satire, physical humor, funny scenes, etc."
Any sort of humor is acceptable: satire, goofy, witty, etc. The doors are pretty wide open for anything that will bring a smile out of the audience and we certainly good all use more laughter in our lives.
The one important requirement is that the work be of good photog

Project Educate: Planes, Trains, and Automobiles..
...all these modes of transportation are exactly what the Transportation Photography Gallery is about.
Various Forms and What Belongs in the dA Transportation Photography Gallery
The official gallery description is "Photographs that depict our means of moving from one location to another." For once, this description is pretty accurate!
Transportation photography is all about capturing the means of our transportation. Some believe that the gallery is mostly about car photography, but that simply isn't true. Just about every mode of transportation out there is represented and the below is just a small taste of it.

Project Educate: Interview - notbland
Today, as part of Project Educate's focus on transportation photography, I'm presenting an interview with notbland whose automotive shots are unparalleled and who happens to be just one hell of a nice guy.

1) Why did you join dA? Were you into photography before joining, or was it a passion that developed later?
I joined dA as a way to both showcase my work to its massive artist community, as well as gain feedback from fellow artists. This latter point is the primary reason I still keep my profile active, even after all these years. When I finish editing an image, before it sees the light of day on any other website- including my own- I post the photos here first, for feedback from my fans. Often I make changes based on the comments, and it's this constant critique that allows me to fix mistakes or oversights, and overall further hone my editing skills.

In Color: Still Life Photography
Still Life Photography is the amazing skill of photographing inanimate objects, often as an arrangement on a small set. While this gives the photographer more control over the photo, it is difficult work and takes a lot of skill in lighting, setup, and vision to pull off shots like those listed below.

Project Educate: How To Improve
"How do I become a better photographer?" This simple question is one of the most commonly asked questions out there and it has one of the most complicated answers out there. It is no different than asking "how do I become a better cook?" or "how do i become a better writer?". The answer can be boiled down to three simple facets though... you study and you practice and you immerse yourself in what you love.
Will reading this article make you a better photographer? Nope. But hopefully it will give you the tools and ideas you need to make yourself better.
Photography As An Artistic Medium
Photography can easily be explained as the study and capture of light. It is truly that simple but it also goes so much deeper as well.
In photography, LIGHT is like a painter's brushes and paints. Light is what allows the photographer to change the images that are captured on the (analog or digital) film and changes the entire structure of how an image looks. But light is

Project Educate Focus: Architecture
Architectural photography is a highly specialized field of photography that goes way beyond just taking photos of great buildings. A great architectural photographer sees the potential in a structure (or even just a part of it) and captures the essence of its character or superimposes his or her own onto the structure.
Various Forms and What Belongs in the dA Architectural Photography Gallery
Traditional and classical architectural photography focuses on old.. sometimes ancient.. structures and the scenery that surrounds them. It's generally focused on expressing the natural aspects of the structure beauty.

Modern architectural photography focuses more on modern buildings, but more importantly it generally has a much greater occurrance of extreme, abstract, and unusual angles and stylization.

Artistic architectural photography is also a bit different from its commercial

Invisible until,
a smile seen through a window.
A bright light ensnaring a moth.
Handsome, quiet mystery.

Many reasons to walk away,
but... a puzzle and I reluctantly,
obsessed. Trying to turn away,
but piqued by music, art, creativity!

Just let it go, let it go,
why can't I let it go. Filled with curiosity.
The best way out is through.
Must unravel the mystery.

Sorry for the odd angle, it is hanging on the wall and is behind a paper star lantern I have.  You cannot tell from the photo, but the fur accents and whiskers are a heather purple and inside the ears is lavender.

Nothing really to share here at the moment, just got tired of the extremely old entry that was just holding the old skin since I am no longer a core member.  It's HOT - no AC at the moment and the 4 oscillating fans only do so much.  I don't sleep well when I am this hot, so here I am.

A few days from today, the history books show an entry.  An entry of mystery, and portent, as the great powers came down upon the Earth, and, in accordance with the wishes of the mighty King Kong, granted the world a boon.  That boon was you.  And lo, let it be said to all that you are to be wished a Happy Birthday upon that day, with the most excellent and amazing of cakes to partake in! :D (Big Grin) Have your cake and eat it too
