Notre Dame de Coutances en Normandie by hubert61

We do not see things as they are. We see things as we are.
- Anais Nin

I've been on dA since 2005 and a senior member since 2007. I've been a Community Volunteer twice, first looking after Photography > Horror & Macabre (November 2008 - June 2010) and Photography > Darkroom (June 2012 - May 2013). I've also adminned various groups over the years but these days I'm pretty much just here to share and enjoy art.

As well as professional photography, I manage online communications for an art performance charity, run a little techie business with my husband and am also studying for a BSc in Forensic Psychology. Hobbies include obsessing over entertainment media and literature of a dark nature, writing (under a pseudonym, because I like to compartmentalise) and playing with fire. I share my home with one large man, two small cats, an albino axolotl, five goldfish, a family of aquatic snails and more computers than two people realistically need.

So excited about my photography blog's new custom domain, :boogie:
I'm now on Ello at because I've got the flu and when I'm stuck inside I spend too much time on the internet.
Blog time! How I set my prices for professional art photography
DA is exactly what I needed to get my brain out of essay writing mode and into creative arty mode.

Love your quote from Anais Nin, her writing was quite controversial for the time. My fav - Little Birds.

Thank you for the fav.

A quote for you from Mr Wilde. Hope you don't mind and I think it fits with yours.

“There are moments when one has to choose between living one's own life, fully, entirely, completely-or dragging out some false, shallow, degrading existence that the world in its hypocrisy demands.”

A lovely quote and a good thing to be reminded of. Thank you :aww:
