Since You've Been Gone

Well i have to say i am overwhelmed at the responce i DIDN'T have for my last journal entry, nice to know i'm loved here 0_o. Oh well... Anyway i've decided to try my best to update my DA account every so often especially since i've gotten a bit more inspiration recently as well as a few more photo in my collection. Also i need something to help take my mind off issues and what better way to do this than photography :)

Recently i've had a well known problem i'm sure alot of people can relate to. My external hard drive (with high resolution backups of my photos) decided to kill itself and so i lost alot of memories and good photos with that :(. HOWEVER all is not lost with the fact that i managed to recover about 80% of them with thanks to CD backups, Deviant Art and my laptop. Some arn't as high quality as they used to be but atleast i have a copy of them. This goes to show how shitty technology can be and how important it is to backup work several different ways ;)

In other news i've recently from a 5 day holiday at Center Parcs in Longleat, where i had a very enjoyable time :) I did all sorts of activities i'll probably never experience again such as Skuba Diving, Abseiling and Fencing. Not to mention a nice trip into Longleat Safari Park where i got some wonderful animal shots! Definatly a worthy place for people to visit...

It is with regret that I have to announce that Richard Watson aka Xeno834, sadly passed away at 04:10pm on Sunday 14th June 2009 after a five year battle with Bone Cancer.

Richard was a talented photographer as you can see from his photos on this very page. And his loss will be great.

I am posting this message on behalf of his brother Steven Watson as he does not possess a deviant art account.

Even though he has passed on please still check out his work as it would please him and his family to know people are still enjoying the wonder of his photographs.

Thank you

Matthew Bellingham aka Nocturnal Stillness
