Update + Features 040413Dear friend and watchers
I hope you all had a great easter, the British easter has been rather surreal with the freezing weather and yes it snowed today, I did made a dark wish for longer winter back in January which I totally regret now especially when I saw my blue fingers waiting in the cold for the bus that never showed! I apologise for not making any features or commenting on journals much, I've been concentrating soley on your deviations. I've also missed some important birthdays, a belated happy birthday to you if I missed yours it looks like things will be this way for while, Im working for two different companies in the same building and it can get a little crazy sometimes. I will be finishing with the Egypt pictures in the next 2 weeks or less I hope so I can focus on my usual art. I will try to do more art features this month, keep a look out for those

there's a poem in my head by =katworks
see-less by ~tjashaaa
"That's what violence was: emotion leaking out from consciousness into the physical world, linking up with the muscles of the arms and shoulders and diaphragm and, inevitably, the face. Stifle emotion during an act of violence and the face becomes a blank, unreadable mask."
Five In FiveReflecting upon my art school days recently, a thought popped into my head...a rarity.
I was thinking back to how we were instructed in Life Drawing 101 to do gesture drawings within a short period of time. Basically, it is a method of training hands to quickly sketch what the brain has already seen. Staying "focused" means sustained concentration. Once you start drawing you can't stop because there's only a minute or two to finish!
With that practice in mind I figured it would be a good exercise for photography as well. Too often I hear people say they have "writer's block" when it comes to finding something to photograph. So five photographs in five minutes seemed to me to be a good motivational exercise for one to do when down in the creativity dumps. Because of the short time frame it sharpens the mind's eye to produce, on deadline, something…anything. All in an effort to get the creative adrenaline pumping again.
Its not about creating the next Mona Lisa…its about producing
A La Recherche du Temps PerduA few days later 2012 will be a memory...And We can not believe that we lived all that bitter sweet moments in a period of TıME...Because humanity is close to forget the things easily when they are young but, remember them so clearly when some TIME passsed. Or let me say in some other words, when you get aged you will always think balancing the things so, when I asked what did I do last year or what was the best experiment that I lived this year...It was having a photo session with :iconcanankk:
I used to photograph antic cities and neat sculptures from museum but, I had not any chance to work with a model since years. I was so willingly prepare myself to have that photo event of mine. In the other hand I was so excited ( honestly feared a bit ) because she is not only a beautiful lady but a so humanist person. She is an artist as well as she is a humble woman. She is so kind and also graceful and she adds some
A Gifted Talent XXVI...DaraghDear friends of the arts please allow me to introduce to you Daragh. Many of you know him and his expressive works...the rest of you should.
Originally the Realism movement's ideology that photography must be about documentary was challenged with Surrealism's movement towards the abstract. In their ideology a photo could express the concept of an image as an essential being. Daragh has embraced this notion in his work. His object is the image itself and its creative process.
Through digital darkroom magic I must say he has excelled in this medium and has taken the genre of abstract/surreal photography to new levels of excellence.
Without further ado, from Spain, but originally from Belfast, Ireland, may I present to you...

A Gifted Talent XXX...MJDear friends of the arts please allow me to introduce to you MJ and her delightfully "small world" of photographic art.
MJ calls somewhere near Chicago, USA, home and it is there that she finds a new face and look at the Windy City. It is a feather in her cap that in spite of those winds she can capture the most delicate nuances of nature in an expressively poetic fashion. As an artist MJ works through the lens of a camera mainly but lately has begun posting drawings which certainly hint that this artist's well of creativity runs deep.
Many of you know of MJ's fine macro work...and many more should in my honest opinion. You'll come away after a "walk" through her gallery with these words of Mother Teresa in mind (as found on MJ's home page in light of her artistic statement)...""Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier...."
They say its a small small world but thankfully there is an MJ in it to bring it into focus for us all. She succinctly shows us through her ca

Crown of ThornsShe wakes up with red staining her pillow
and the taste of blood like iron in her mouth
It stains her teeth and leaks from her lips, and as she
rinses her mouth out, she can’t help thinking that
it’s better than dirt and ashes
it feels like she’s wearing a noose
of broken promises and shattered glass
that tightens around her throat with every day that passes
She nails a smile to her face
and doesn't let herself think the word dying
Keep in Touch!
^Nyx-Valentine arrived in our community and started whipping everyone into a frenzy with her relentless desire to bring the Artistic Nude and Fetish galleries to the fore. 9 years later, and it's safe to say that Nyx is not only a leader as a photographer in these galleries, but she has also established herself as a much saught after model. ^...
