Deviant art has been a nice place to stick up photos and get comments from people from around the world. No doubt about that here. For a few years I paid the subscription fee and even bought into the prints program despite later it being offered for free to everyone (which really ticked me off since I paid money for it).
Then I stopped paying money to Deviant Art and started giving it to Flickr instead. Why? Quite easy really, because of these messages I get from time to time:
"An administrator has relocated one of your deviations from Photography > Animals, Plants & Nature > Miscellaneous to Photography > Animals, Plants & Nature > Flowers & Plants.
FAQ: Why was my deviation moved?
Moved Deviation: Mist

The fact that you cant move it back is even more annoying. Sure admin's move things around according to how they want to and maybe some need it, but that shot is NOT of flowers and plants, its of mist coming through trees, hence the name. I stick things where I feel they are appropriate according to my own judgment about what I was photographing and wanted to show, I think my record should stand for itself that I might have a slight idea that I know what I am doing. Yet the admins feel they can move things around in my gallery at will, and that is why Deviant Art will never see another dollar of mine.
Now that I have said that, ne ot other things. The plaster form of the frogman sculpture is now done and at the bronze foundry being cut up into pieces for casting. I sit in great anticipation to see the final product of Ola Enstad and my labor over the last and and half months. By the way, if you happen to be in Norway and see a stamp of the flying frogmen, thats Ola's work as well.
Now then, back to the darkroom.
