I write poems about taking pictures and take pictures that are visual poems.

Cameras should capture what we see to make us think. They should capture what we think to make us see.

Yep, so, today is deviantART's 14th birthday. It's growing up so fast and so am I. Last year I was 19 and now I'm 20; it's one of those age gaps that seem like more than a year.

When I joined dA it was on a different account and it was 2010. After I got my DSLR, I created this account in Aug 2011. Back then, I thought I was good at photography, but I really sucked. Now, I am good at photography, but I think I suck.

I have come a long way though. I've somehow got two Daily Deviations. I'm nearly at 200 watchers and have gotten over 15,000 pageviews now. And I've certainty gotten better at taking pictures, too, even if I am harder on myself and more selective of what I post here.

And I've come across so, so, so many amazing artists here, and I really can't wait to discover more. There are also always so many amazing art features, tip journals, groups, and contests, too, which are great for the community. I love it all. I love dA. :hug:

So, happy birthday dA! :party:
Here's to another year of creating and expanding! :love:
