My Friend Published a Book!

Mon Jul 28, 2014, 9:41 PM
Hello Loves,
I hope you all are doing well!
Anyway, I wanted to share with you all some fantastic news about my friend Reaper-X! Reaper-X has recently just published his first street photography book!
How awesome is that?!?! You can read all about it on his page here:

I'VE PUBLISHED MY FIRST BOOK!:iconduck::iconsaysplz: Productivity happened?!
...yeah, surprisingly.  I've been busy and yet not so busy.  Some of it is part of a long and really stupid tale of wasted time and other issues. Other parts of it are chalked up to life, love, stress and setbacks.  For one, I've been getting ready for school.
:iconduck::iconsaysplz: THIS OL' ROAD AGAIN, HUH...
Except this time the fees are actually being worked out. All I've gotta worry about is transportation and whether or not I'm taking extra classes.  What am I majoring in? Computer Information Sciences... I know, right?  Why not photography?  'cause the school I'm going to wouldn't really be teaching me anything I didn't already know and wasn't already learning... and I like computers, so hey, let's go!
I'm still gonna be a photographer, that'll never go away. Shutter clicks until the casket
However, that's not what this journal is about as you c




See more pages from the book here: www.blurb.com/b/5380870-nouns-…

Want to own your very own copy?
Softcover & e-book: www.blurb.com/b/5380870-nouns-…
OR
Australians go here: au.blurb.com/b/5380870-nouns-o…

I highly recommend this book to lovers of street photography, photography, or art in general.
It is a fantastic book!
Plus, with every purchase we are helping support one of very own to go back to school! :la:

So, if you can purchase a copy for yourself great! If not, how about just helping spread the word?
Every little bit helps!
:heart:

RIP Buddy Mayes

Sun Jul 27, 2014, 3:57 PM


Hi loves,

It seems unreal to be writing yet another entry involving the passing of a family member when I just went through this and have yet to process the first death fully. You see, yesterday while dealing with some of the final details of my grandma's passing on July 5th (ie: estate and will etc) we received a phone call that Buddy had passed away; 3 weeks to the very day of my grandma's passing. I have no words to describe what it feels like to be grieving and be dealt more grief even though I have been put through it now numerous times in the last year. Perhaps, I am simply becoming an expert with the grieving process or I am merely numb awaiting the eventual breakdown. :shrug:

Anyway, I wish I had more uplifting news for everyone and maybe I will later on, but for right now this is what my REAL life is. I wish it was not, but hey that's life right? I want you all to know the only reason why I have always even before becoming a CV been so transparent about my life is because I do not believe in hiding parts of myself. If you are going to know me you will know both my triumphs and failures, my blessings and my pains. To me, friendship even if you are miles away from me means you get to see the reality of a person's life and soul... not just the fake ass mask many people like to wear for others to accept them. So, although I am deeply regretful to share tragic news so often if you are to be in my life as a real friend you will have to accept the beauty that comes from the chaotic storms within my life. If you cannot accept this... I understand and wish you well.

Either way, I want you all to know that due to how unexpected this death was for me I ended up taking the night off last night and most of today off to just get my head clear as well as spend time with my boyfriend. Thus, if you sent me a message of some sort and I have yet to respond I will be getting to my messages later on this evening. Please note, if you sent an email, skype message, or any other form of message to me I will also be getting to those later on tonight so do not fret. :heart:

I hope you all are well and please have a safe week. :heart:

Love,
Star

hi :D (Big Grin)

uhm, in your "How to suggest" box you mentioned that a DD suggestion should include the "reason why you think the deviant deserves a Daily Deviation."

i think that it should read "why you think the deviation deserves a Daily Deviation".
or better yet... "why the deviation should be featured as a Daily Deviation".

please apologize, but if things haven't changed, then a DD is never about the deviant and how he/she is such a great person, has birthday soon, suffers from this and that and whatnot.

from FAQ #18: Who selects Daily Deviations and how are they chosen? comes this:
"...An assortment of submissions are chosen each day by this select group of staff/volunteer members who wish to showcase an image which they found impressive or otherwise interesting enough to deserve being brought to the attention of the community-at-large..."


the way you have put it right now it only contributes to the confusion and common misconception imo that many still believe that a DD is some sort of an award for someone in particular or for what he/she has done or achieved, which of course it's not.

it's all about the art that's shown. always has been, always will be. well, of course you know that already. ;) (Wink)

sorry again for my blunt and maybe wisecracking approach, i just thought i'd mention it and mean no offense. Hug
