My first ever Daily Deviation! (April 11, 2012)
Thanks to for suggesting and for featuring it Go show them some love!
|The Best Of My Best. Enjoy!|
Today is a day like any other day. However, this day has a glitch. An anomaly. A difference. I submit that this day is EXACTLY like yesterday and tomorrow but different. Yeah. Different.
Different is good. Especially if it is an undiscovered difference.
All the photos in this journal was plucked from the Undiscovered Photography pages. I pick the features for my journals with great care and if I think it deserves a wider audience, I include it. I mean it as a compliment. I invite you to visit these photographers work and pages. I made my decision to Discover the Undiscovered. Decide for yourself.
**As an aside, in my last journal, I received a note from someone I featured. They were not happy to have been featured without my asking permission to feature their work. I took the piece down immediately and also removed the favorite and comment from the piece. It was all done fairly politely. I did feel that the claws on this person had come out though. I don't believe including their work warranted that. If DeviantArt gave me the ability to block the person, I would--just sayin'. I won't cow-tow to immature and insecure people. If you don't want your work to be seen, don't post it on the World Wide Web.
I tell you this because I want everyone I feature to know that I only wish to promote your work. I will not use your work in any way outside of my journal. If you do not want your work featured by me or if it upsets you to have me think your work striking enough to want to promote it to my watchers--people who I respect as people and artists. People who are much better than I in the craft of photography and artistry, then I ask you to message me. I will take your work down. No problem.
I WON'T, however, message you first before featuring your piece. I've tried that in the past and it adds a great deal of time to putting the journal together. There is no offense intended--it's not that I want to arbitrarily step on anyone's toes. My intent is stated above--promotion of your work. No money is changing hands. There is no ulterior motive, no agenda and your work won't be used by me anywhere outside of my journal.
