In few days, a whole year will have passed since the day I took over dA's Street Gallery as Street Community Volunteer.
A neglected gallery, full of misplaced images, but also with many worthy submissions.
I visited this galllery everyday, cleaning it (the 24h and 1month popular pages) and informing the photographers of the misplaced images (every single one of them), what Street is all about.
At the same time, 3 days per week, I featured a worthy image as a Street Daily Deviation, taking in account your suggestions as well. The featured images were not necessarily the "best" of the featured deviants. My intention was not to feature "bests" but to draw the community's attention, to active Street photographers, both experienced and new to the genre, in order to boost their dedication to Street. I am content because a lot of times I succeeded.
During this year, a lot of people helped me with their suggestions and with working in Groups, promoting the genre and dedicating precious personal time for this purpose. I owe them a big THANK YOU. And I hope, that one of these people will continue promoting Street as the new Street CV.
In few days, my CV time will be over. Before this happens, I need to say a big thanks to two deviants in particular. Two very special ladies. The first is Moonbeam13, Head of the Community Relations team for giving me the opportunity to work as a CV. The second is the awesome myraincheck for being a constant inspiration and support, during both the good and the bad times of my CV period. Working with her in many projects, was a priviledge and an honor. A truly inspired and inspiring artist with an exceptional talent, an unmatched reliability and an unusually low, humble profile.
Grazie di cuore Mary!
