My interview by Black-White-Club
*****************************************************

I was not interested in the past in selling my photographs as prints,
because I do not consider myself as a professional photographer.
I never was and I never will be...

Till I discovered that the money I get from selling my pictures can be used as deviant dollars to buy dA subscriptions as gifts for my friends or as subscription donations to various dA contests.

So I uploaded the high resolution files and enabled printing in some of my pictures. You are all welcome to visit my  Printshop  and if there is a picture of mine that you don't find there but you wish to buy, just drop me a note.

Thanks in advance for keeping the game going!

There are very few times that I have faved almost a whole gallery of a new deviant...
and this is one of these very rare cases...

There are very few times that I have not commented in a picture I really LIKE...
and this is also one of these very rare cases,
but simply because I stared SPEECHLESS!

I have the great pleasure to introduce you to an authentic Street Dog!
Please meet Husnu Atasoy from India!

*****************************************************


A man was born 2.000 years ago on earth.

He said some good things about love and giving.

They killed him for that.

If people had listened to him,
the world would be  a better place.

Unfortunately it isn't.

Remember the ones in need.

Not only during the holidays.

Please.

My interview by Black-White-Club
*****************************************************

:santa::rudolph:
We guess it's about giving to the ones that are in  need!
And here we have a very serious situation...
bQw, Brian Webb, dA's Street Gallery Moderator, member of the Yard and a great guy, is in need.
Directly from his journal, Brian tells us what happened to him:

"Not a lot to say. I've been AWOL for a couple of weeks, but the hospital I was in didn't have 'net access.

Yeah, hospital.

I was feeling lethargic. Went to see a doctor and a blood test showed a WBC 4x normal (27,000) and a RBC 1/2 normal. They also eventually found a tumor in my right leg.

So I lost my right leg.

I just got back home from the hospital but still have a couple weeks of healing to do, followed by a month of therapy.

But I'm okay, especially considering I was probably only a day from going septic and death."

Now if THAT isn't a brave attitude, none is!

Brian has a family and 2 little kids.
The expenses concerning his health are high.
So, another member of the Yard, WobblySpackle set a chipping account for Brian till the 4th of January! Here is the link:brianqwebb.chipin.com/brian-q-…

We're calling all members and watchers of the Yard to contribute to this account brianqwebb.chipin.com/brian-q-…, any amount of money. Everything you can offer will be a great help for Brian.

:santa:Let the Christmas spirit come to your hearts.:santa:

My interview by Black-White-Club
*****************************************************

Updating with my most recent news...
After a hanfull of pills, finally I managed to feel better and thanks to the sunny weather in Athens, I hope I'll be able to shoot again, especially with the third toy, Santa brought me, A Leica Mini-Zoom 35-70, point and shoot camera for 56 euros :D
It's black, it's totally discreet, it carries the red dot for much less than some thousands of euros and I can't wait to get out street-shooting with it!

The-Yard-Collective is running perfectly smooth at last and I am happy to see it constantly growing to a large street photography community.

From there, I chose some pictures of our members to share with you:

I hope you like them as much as I did! :)

My interview by Black-White-Club
*****************************************************

The recent few days I was not able to take care of my personal account, concerning my friends' new postings. The reason for this, is that first I was not feeling well, since Monday (bloody weather changes!) and second the conversion of The-Yard-Collective to a Super Group, demanded (and still demands) a huge amount of time!

So I had to fav and run, not being able to read your journals at the same time.

Bear with me, till things get smooth again and in the meantime...
REMEMBER to JOIN the YARD! :w00t:
(and have patience with all the dA bugs that constantly need ironing out)
