Hi there folks! :wave: I haven't done one of these for several months so you may have forgotten what this is about. It's simply a feature of photographs that I've found here on dA that I happen to think are cool. Hopefully you'll agree with me and enjoy the show!

It Has Been Quite A While

Hi honies I'm home! :wave: Those of you who are still managing to pay attention to what I do, or in this case don't do, will have noticed that I haven't been around these parts for rather a long time. Hopefully you'll be glad to know that I'm not actually dead, at least I don't think I am. I have to confess that I have been spending most of my time on Google+… , having secured an invite when it was in closed beta from the rather awesome  OpticalIlluzens, and I fell in love with it. It caters incredibly well for photographers, and other visual artists, unlike some other social networks I could mention and the quality of work you can see posted on it every single day is absolutely astonishing. Since joining I have somehow managed amass over 7,500 followers despite not having a particularly populist or fashionable photographic style and not really doing very much self-promotion at all. If you haven't joined Google+ yet I highly recommend that you do, and circle me, and if you have post a link to you're profile below so that I can circle you.
Anywho, now that I'm back I plan to post work here regularly once more and get involved with the groups of which I'm still, hopefully, an admin. Despite my affection for Google+ dA has, and always will have, a huge place in my heart.

I've been lucky enough to be able to join Google+ and I have to say that I'm really enjoying it so far. I think it has massive potential for Photographers and other artists to be able to share their work. The best thing is Circles which means that you get to control exactly who sees whatever you post. If you don't just want to take my word for it, but try it for yourself just send me a note with your email address and I'll send you an invitation. If you're already a member you can, if you want to, add me… :D

COOL PHOTOGRAPHY 111 Blowing My Own Trumpet!

I normally try to avoid being too personal and self-indulgent in these Journals, but just this once I've decided to make an exception. Earlier this week I was interviewed about my photography, and other things, by the lovely :iconopticalilluzens:, and I'd like to thank her publicly for making it such a pain free process. It was actually loads of fun to do and I don't think I came across as too much of a pretentious idiot, but you can make your own mind up about that by reading the interview here I honestly wouldn't be averse to being interviewed again if anyone else would be interested in hearing what I have to say. Or if there's anything you want to ask me, within reason, but you can't be bothered to go through the whole interview palaver you can put your questions to me here, or in a note. If you do ask me any questions I'll do my very best to answer them. However, I offer not guarantee of any kind that my answers will be either coherent, or rational.

COOL PHOTOGRAPHY #110 382 Watchers?!

Yesterday I was bored so out of idle curiosity I checked my stats and discovered that I actually now have 382 Watchers. How the hell did that happen? It may not seem like a huge number if you're one of the dA megastars, but to me it's staggering. Especially since I consider myself to be slightly above average, at best, as a photographer. So, anyhoo, I thought I should let you all know how much I appreciate you, and say a big hello :wave: to my new Watchers! Here's a big huggle for all of you. :huggle:
