There are many ways of breaking a heart. Stories were full of hearts broken by love,
but what really broke a heart was taking away its dream - whatever that dream might be.

My new FAV site.

I am a budding new photographer. I have had my camera less than one year. I don't have but one lens. I don't have any filters or accessories. Its not like I don't want them I just don't have the money for it.

Anyway, a good friend (who takes pictures) pointed me to this site, Photosig. Its a site where people critic your work! Now. I used to be the kind of person that would whimper and retreat when I got critiqued. Now, its the most useful info I can receive. Check it out sometime. I have put up a few photos and only one got a bad review, and one got no comment at all. But out of 8 photos, in my uneducated opinion, that is a damn good ratio!

Anyway. I find it fun to start looking at this passion as something that could be profession someday, in some way. I don't want to rely on it to make a living, but a monetary return, so that I could buy some new equipment? yea. thats the ticket.

So, check out Photosig, its pretty darn cool. Beware, there are sharks in the water there too. Just don't let yourself bleed to death over it.

edit: have you noticed how teenagers act so much more "entitled" these days?


  1. I MUST check out the site. I love to take photos (as I am sure you know)

    I only have one very nice Kodak camera.....I cant afford much else but it does have some nice and fancy extras to it.

  2. i have to check that out.
    i'm waiting for santa to send me a nikon d40. right now i have a cannon which is fine, but it doesn't have some of the bells and whistles that i want in order to get into this hobby.

    anyway, very cool that you found this.

  3. goddess: keep taking pictures! just keep doing it. Digital is a must though.

    rebecca: my D40 is the best present I have ever bought for myself. seriously. can't wait to see what images you get with yours.

  4. Great! I will totally check it out!!!!

  5. What a great find! I substitute fancy lenses and filters by using a pretty inexpensive photo program my Mom gave me.

  6. I'll definitely check out the site. Sounds somewhat similar to Deviant Art. :)
