A little update---9/11 Memorial

A little update---9/11 Memorial

I realize that my account has once again gone quiet. I've been busy studying over the summer, and I'm currently back in college. With Organic Chemistry now on my plate, it's forcing me to study harder than before. I will, however, be updating with occasional photos I've taken recently. The first set will most likely be the photos I took at the 9/11 Memorial this past weekend. I was lucky to get a reservation for the memorial, especially since it just opened last week. Every other available day in September and October was booked. It really was a beautiful sight, but seeing the families placing flowers on the names and sketching their names

This week's deviations

This week's personal theme is "retro". I decided to go a step further and take the accidental/mistake photos I took yesterday and make them more interesting. Not better, because there is no way to fix things out of focus or titlted or whatever; rather make them look creative through cropping and artistic filters. I mean, I could go the simple route and upload all the photos that turned out right, but they were boring and looked like any other standard snapshot. I decided to give myself a bit of a challenge to make something good out of my mistakes. Sort of like how hipsters take their lomography cameras, which are purposefully crappy, and ta

6,000 views = Hello Everyone! and Thanks

It's been a while since I last wrote up a journal here on deviantART. Considering the fact that I've recently hit 6,000 views despite the lack of updates, I thought I should give a little update on where I stand. There's been a lot of things going on in my life. For one, I'm in college, and the workload requires a lot of dedication and study time. The fact that I'm majoring in Biochemistry (which is one helluva major to uptake) makes rigorous studying and focus even more important. I'm currently enjoying my summer break, but I'm self-teaching myself Organic Chemistry in preparation of my upcoming semester. However, I still enjoy my own free t

Happy Birthday! I hope you'll have a GREAT one!
Late response, but thanks! I hardly come back, but I do check occasionally. Nice to see someone still remembers me :)
:hug: Nope. I haven't forgotten you.
Hey worldnewser I really appreciate all of the photos you recently posted for the 9/11 memorial. I wasn't personally involved - I didn't know anyone who was killed there, but it's affected me nevertheless.

You did a wonderful job of capturing the tone and mood of the place - your shots are wonderful and I thank you for them!
Of course. I think 9/11 affected everyone around the world, regardless of personal connection. I think that showing sentimental shots will help people see the memorial as more than just some tourist spot/pretty fountains in downtown Manhattan...which I feel some of the visitors to the site thought, judging by how some people with video cameras acted. I want to show how 9/11 is still a part of people's lives, even if they don't notice it in their daily lives. We move forward, but it stays with us.
That's a good perspective, I completely agree. Not one of mockery, and not one of suppression - but rather, one of acceptance and respect.
just to let you know that a lot of the stuff you drew (even that unfinished torchwood cogwheel door, i'm gonna use it in my animations, they're what i need! on the credits i WILL credit you!
