Deviant Art and Floral Pictureque
May 22, 2015
I've been taking photos since I got my first actual camera is 2007. It was one of those small digital cameras that never really had a proper lens which made it impossible to manually focus on anything. Nonetheless, I did enjoy my previous two digital cameras before the Nikon DSLR came long – which isn't even mine.
It was Deviant Art (dA) that got me into taking photos of flowers, the sky, etc. My sisters and I were obsessed with dA back then. Those were the days when the internet was taking over our lives. And our transition from going outside and playing with water balloons to constantly facing a screen involved taking photos, editing them on photoshop CS3, and posting them up on dA.
The artists who would spend hours digitally painting a Harry Potter character or Photo Manipulating a fantasy world was what inspired me to find my own creativity and contribute my work to the website. I went from traditional artwork to comics to photo manips and then finally becoming a nature photographer – I've always loved that title even if I'm not a certified photographer, but who needs to be one these days anyway.
I thought I'd share some of my work from this little hobby of mine. Like how I get with blogging and reading other blogs, I got a sense of peace whenever I take and edit photos like these. It gets me in the zone if you know what I mean. Perhaps these photos of flowers were the start of my floral obsession.

I still can't believe it's almost been 10 years since I joined that Deviant Art and I still can't believe that I would have the drive to post up something new at least once or twice every year.
Snap a photo of a little piece of nature you come across today. The sky, the sun, a rock, a flower, a leaf, and maybe even grass. Snapchat it, facebook it, instagram it, tweet it, do it all. Y'all can use the hashtag #lovefornature and let's see how much love we can spread.
Have an awesome day!
