"The will and the way", Feat. Alimuse

Journal Entry: Wed Oct 29, 2008, 2:27 AM

<img src="…"  /> journal
The journey continues as I discover new wonderful deviants everyday now, that support me, teach me, make me laugh and most often simply amaze me with their talent...

"When there's a will, there's a way" is an old and familiar saying... I came to realize that even though I've loved photography for a long time, I would actually never enjoy it so much today if it wasn't for your comments and suggestions. Would you? I'd love to read how you think that DA has influenced your desire or ability to create... Your will and your way!

My second feature goes to alimuse, which a lot of you know already... and this is no coincidence. She was the first to feature my photographs in her journal and inspired me in return to write my own and share the :heart:! I immediately arose in love (why should it be a fall?) with her eye for the details of nature, her renewed interest for everyday objects, her strong perspective on architecture and her wonderful portraits.

Alimuse is one of the most eclectic and inspired artists I've met here and she knows a great many ways to reach for the beauty of emotions, capture it and deliver it to us... Here is a small glimpse into her treasure chest!

"We don't see the world as it is, but as we are." (Kant)

So here is the world as we are, 10 deviations that I feel connected to, preceded by one of mine to express why I do. Togetherness in intimacy is such a strong feeling...

The world as I am...

Club.gif wonderful deviants
There are so many great deviants that I can't list all of them here. These are the ones who consistently combine artistic quality in their deviations and friendly behavior in their comments or replies, and should therefore be visited and watched in priority:


This list is, of course, limited and not exclusive of many other great deviants. Obviously, I chose to watch those whom I believed had either or both qualities mentioned above and they are my friends on DA which you can discover here.

great choice featuring Alicia, I approve. She is, after all, the reason I discovered your great work!
BriceChallamel Oct 30, 2008  Hobbyist Photographer
And mine for yours! ;)
alimuse Oct 29, 2008  Hobbyist Photographer
Oh, thanks so much for the wonderful, kind words and the feature! Great journal layout, by the way. I also read your first journal, so now will be checking it out every time you post a new one! My most humble appreciation, Charlie! :hug:
BriceChallamel Oct 29, 2008  Hobbyist Photographer
Thank you! I actually erased the first journal when I published this one because I updated it instead of a new entry... I was really sad because I wanted to keep trace. But then again, the river only flows one way and I'm really glad to be featuring you on my homepage now! You've been very kind to me and I'm in awe with your talent! :cuddle:
alimuse Oct 29, 2008  Hobbyist Photographer
Oh, I see. I must have not been reading very closely. I thought the bottom section was the former journal! I'm sorry you lost your first one. I would have loved to have seen it!
BriceChallamel Oct 29, 2008  Hobbyist Photographer
Well, you're my new first ever journal and it's wonderful too! ;)
alimuse Oct 29, 2008  Hobbyist Photographer
Well, I'm very flattered and pleased! Thanks!
dA got me into photography. There you go, that's how it has inspired and changed me
BriceChallamel Oct 29, 2008  Hobbyist Photographer
Damn! That's a strong statement to begin with on this conversation... And I'm really glad it did this to you! ;)
