The Showcase: October Feature
TheFavouriteShowcase was founded a few months ago with the only purpose to give its members the exposure they deserve. It's the home of photographers, digital and traditional artists.
Let's show some appreciation to our dear photographers :clap:
“A great photograph is a full expression of what one feels about what is being photographed in the deepest sense, and is, thereby, a true expression of what one feels about life in its entirety.” - Ansel Adams

Journal Entry: Thu May 7, 2015, 6:00 AM
I want to be sure to thank everyone for their kind "favorites" of my photographs. I'm not a professional, but I do love to share what I take - from the mundane to the bizarre. I don't respond a lot, but thank you for favoriting!

Also - my most popular seem to be my collage of lilacs and my picture of a forge. In case you wanted to check them out.

Also, I think I did this wrong and wrote over the previous entry instead of adding a new one. And now I figured it out, so the last entry is spare, but it's kind of back. Weird. Oh well!

  • Listening to: TV
  • Reading: Nano!
  • Watching: Haven
  • Playing: Diablo III
  • Drinking: Corona


deoris's Profile Picture
Deoris Ronan
Artist | Hobbyist | Photography
United States
What I do on DA: Amateur Photographer. Digital photos. I tend to take pictures of pretty things or personal things. I have a WIDE variety of interests, tastes and likes. I believe strongly in attacking the work to improve...but never attacking the person behind the work.

Co-Founder #Goddess-of-the-Hunt group celebrating Artemis in all her forms.

I also write and am an editor at Toasted Cheese, an online literary journal that holds contests and has a writing community to strengthen the work.

I'm the Queen of Themiscrya Amazons, a writing role-play group that is also a strong female-only community. While founded on the Xena: Warrior Princess Amazons, it's grown to incorporate the historical and is infused with many cultures and myths. While you can join and not write in the story, you must always be a female. (Sorry! It's how we roll!)

I noticed Toasted Cheese seemed kinda quiet? Idk, could've just been when I reactivated my account... :P
deoris Featured By Owner Oct 16, 2015  Hobbyist Photographer
No, it's pretty quiet there. The magazine is going strong, as are the contests. We had over 100 for our Midsummer writing contest.
Crucifer Featured By Owner Oct 18, 2015
Well that's what counts, right! No, I just decided a few weeks ago that I was TOTALLY going to participate in NaNo this year, and then got side tracked in planning and such. Reactivated my account, though. :)

Crucifer Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2013
[link] I s'pose this settles the idea of which photo I'd choose, eh? Not much else to say... :P
deoris Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2013  Hobbyist Photographer
Kind of thought that might be the one. Although a B&W of the underside of the bridge could have been cool too. LOL. Still - awesome. You go right ahead and use that. :)
Crucifer Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2013
It reminds me a bit of a Black Sabbath album cover I once saw, actually lol HAD to go with it. Might need to reproduce it in a higher quality, since I just halved the size of it for the 500x500
deoris Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2013  Hobbyist Photographer
I uploaded full size, so go for it. :)
