Friends, watchers, whoever cares. I will not be around for a while. Life has turned upside down and I'll have to sort it out. Since I haven't been around regularly lately anyways and interes in my stuff has diminished I'm thinking about quitting dA, but I will see about that. What I will do for certain it to go through my previous posts and remove what I feel doesn't fit or didn't get attention. I you faved one of the pieces I'm going to take out, I'm sorry. If you read this thanks for your support over the past times. Yours, Joachim

The ups and downs in the life of... vol.2

After appologising to everyone for not being able to spend much time here on dA I thought everything would turn out well. It started out great, I went on a short trip to the north of germany, had enough time and rest to get rid of a nasty cold that I've been having on and off for about a year now. I took some nice photos, went shopping and paid a visit to Poland. Then I drove down to Prague to play a Rugby League match against the Czech Republic. I had a great weekend, all went well, we won the game and I didn't receive any injuries. In the end I decided to stay one more day and spend quality time in Prague with my girlfriend, sightseeing, ta

Another little incident that happened lately: :thumb58310874: A while ago I submitted this at PhotographersClub. Well, at least I tried to. Apparently there's a number of new admins there. One of them answered my note and declined it, stating it was "obviously a manipulation" and "As you do know, we only accept photographs". I was quite surprised and stated that in fact this obviously IS a photo and I only tweaked it using tools I would have used manually in a darkroom and if she/he wanted to see the original version straight from my camera. I was answered this: "I do understand your view but I'm afraid as according to our submission policy

The ups and downs in the life of...

To my amazement I found out that I had won 2nd prize in isabeluchas "fragile"-contest (https://isabelucha.deviantart.com/journal/12242171/). I have to admit, I completely forgot I had entered. So here I am, in the midst of exam- mayhem, receiving a note from possumofthegrotto  about her donating a years subscription. Immagine the joy! :w00t: I'm really thankfull. Besides that, I have been featured several times lately. Amongst them were: -----------------------------------------------------------------------------< http://shaxpi.deviantart.com/journal/12296599/ by ~Shaxpi (https://www.deviantart.com/shaxpi) | http://luckymax.deviantart.com/journal/12787706/ by :icon

After my toothinfection and after having to go to the dentist daily for a week being in antibiotics once again, I finally had two wisdomteeth removed on thursday. The rest of the day was pure agony. Stayed in bed until friday evening, icepacks on my face, painmedication and all. Yesterday it was better, I was able to spend some time at a womans rugby tournament of our club and take pictures. I even was able to take some macro shots inbetween. Today I should be playing for my club, but there's no way since my face is still swollen like a balloon. I'll take some pictures instead... Thanks everyone for the kind words and the patience. I'll

Quick update

Quick update on my whereabouts: After booted in the face in yesterdays game and getting my head stiched once more, last night was hell because one of my wisdom teeth  decided to have a boost in growth and ripped open my yaw. It's all infected now and I'm off to the mandible sugeon to get it removed. So there is a chance of me not being around for a day or two. Catch you when I'm back in action, have a great spring everyone (resp. autumn for the southern hemisphere), Joachim --------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Zyklotrop is member of these clubs: ~PhotoPurist (https://www.deviantart.com/photopurist) :iconbirds-club:
