I haven't been to my dA in a long time. Some things in my life have changed and I guess there was less opportunity for artistic expression in this form. I've just been working or expressing my self in other more useful forms (writing articles mostly).
In terms of photographic art, I don't really have a cam anymore. I have however rediscovered photography trough the awesome HDR feature on my mobile phone. This is in fact ideal... let me explain. The usual approach to photographic art, is to take pictures of ordinary things and photo them in such a way (with filters and whatnot) that they appear amazing. My own philosophy is different: I believe the world around us already is amazing, and the art of photography is simply in being in the right place at the right time, taking the picture that shows the world in that instant as accurately as possible, as it really is. And so it is fitting: HDR technology allows us to capture shades of light into pictures more realistically -- and my tools are not special in any way, I am using my phone, I am showing you the world as anyone could see it.
That being said though, my art has become more personal. I take pictures around the house I live in and of those I care of (mostly my dog). I have not uploaded any of them to dA before simply because I did not think of them as art, but rather as pictures telling the amazing story of life around me. I have shared them with other people, alongside written stories of actual events. However since this used to be a place for all my artistic expression, I think you deserve to see them as well.
