Hello everyone,

it's been a while since I wrote a journal. Normally I use journals to feature art. 
How are you? Do you enjoy summer time?

Some Deviant asked me "why are you no longer be active on Deviantart ?" Well I am, of course I am! 
But sometimes more in a silent way, searching for images, or checking my inbox. ;)

The main point is there is not enough time to shoot at the moment, that's why I submit images a little less.
When time is there and I'm in the mood, weather or lightning are not on my side. Or I'm stressed/
these days in a positive way, we're moving soon in an awesome new home. :iconsomeconfettiplz:.

Another reason is Deviantart.

I enjoy beeing on Deviantart over 7 years and found so many inspiration on this site, oh and all the wonderful artists.
We all know these nerdy days were we get lost here, searching hours for inspiration and find them? YES !:love:

To be honest some days it's hard to find. The reason is that Deviantart changed a lot. To find new photos for my features
I often browse in a few categories on the front page. But half of the images are not in the right category,
the other once are porn using popular hashtags to get noticed and so on. That sucks.

MarinaCoric (I stalk her art like ages haha )

wrote a journal about it and even when she was angry when she wrote this ;)  she strikes the core of the matter.

Hey deviant, where is the ART?Dear deviantART, you have finally turned to complete crap. Congrats! You've been going towards this moment for a while now and, yes, you are finally here. I hope you're happy. :sarcasticclap:
I don't think you have the right to call yourself the best art site anymore. Well, for a while now... Once you were and some people still believe it is so. They come here, but quickly realize they've come to the wrong place and even quicker they leave you. You're kind of living of your old glory, but for how long...? You keep making changes, allegedly "improving" the site. But the only thing you're doing is chasing artists away, pushing art at the back, pushing crap to the front, destroying the point of a Daily Deviation... Why would any serious artist want to be here anymore...? Most of them aren't. There's a small number of us still sticking mostly because of each other and feeling bad for leaving you because we started here. We remember the "good times" and naively we believe it might be like t


What do you thing about the changes, do you notice or don't care? Let me know I'm curious.

Best wishes Daniela :heart:

52 Weeks# I quit

Journal Entry: Thu Mar 5, 2015, 9:15 AM


Hello everyone,

as the title says, I quit this project. I love to create images and incorporate conceptual ideas, try to catch magical moments, tell stories(the sad and the joyful once), or just like to show the beauty of the little things in life. This project stressed me alot.

Last week I only shoot a few images. After looking at them I felt so uncreative. They look boring and too wanted. I don't like to shoot because I'm in need of a weekly image and there isn't enough time to create something special, or find something that catches my eye.

Photography is something that I really love and it should remain. :heart:

So I quit.

Life is like photography by thedaydreaminggirl

P.S. I know I didn't post any feature over weeks. Well it's the ******* project.
No just kidding. ;) I will post it soon.

Best wishes Daniela.

How was your deviantART year?

Also I meet wonderful new people here and found great images(collecting favourites is always so inspiring, isn´t it? ). Well thanks to everyone for leaving comments, faving, watching me, featuring, or just saying ,Hi'.  I´m so thankful for that. :heart:

I always try to reply your comments and taking a look in your gallery as well. Time isn´t always on my side, but you have a save place  in my inbox, so even when it takes a while, I´ll be there to leave some love as well.

Now I would like to give you an after christmas gift. :iconsomeconfettiplz:
