Update and Featured Inspiration 5Long overdue journal after my last entry on November 21 and Featured Inspiration 4 on August 22. Sorry by that token for the lack of participation here, my life these days might be summed up as a roller coaster ride of priorities and a relentless chase after a career doing what I enjoy most in photography & the visual arts.

Still always grateful for the overwhelming support here, you made a world of difference to keep me pushing forward

Weekly Feature 03I'm at a point where I think having the same avatar for 7 yearstamaraR
is kind of long. I'm afraid to change it though, because I feel
that has sort of become my identity here on DA.
What do you guys think? Leave it or change it?
Time for another weekly feature.

Theme 01 - Spring DaysOkay so like I said I also wanted to throw in some themed features with different mediatamaraR
besides photomanipulations. So this is my first of the themed series.
Spring, because we are all happy that these warm, sunny days have finally arrived.
Spring Days Feature

I think I was doing pretty good. For awhile anyhow. Now...I have to report that I have hit a creative
