[NOTE: journals are boring. You're not obliged to read this (and you probably won't anyway) ]
From time to time I come here just to check if my account is still active.
It's the well-known story of laziness and change of priorities. That is why I rarely post here, but keep the door open. Photography Magazine The Inspired Eye made a small feature of my photographs recently, maybe it'll motivate me to engage myself working with the photo camera (more often) again. Since I switched almost completely to cell phone camera and Instagram, it makes me more able to "freeze a moment", carrying something so lightweight and easy to work with. It also spares time. I still work with the camera and take it sometimes "for a walk" with me, but my preferred tool now is the smartphone. Many would say it's the excuse of lazy people (yes, I'm lazy), the quality of such photographs is poor (well, I'm not doing National Photography stories, fashion editorials or ads for billboards, just captures of small, insignificant, yet interesting things), or that it leads to overproduction and loss of creativity (sometimes it spurred my creativity, and bad images can be made both with the best equipment and with cell phones). There are a lot more pro and con arguments, but to be honest: I don't really care for what the critics say about mobile phone photography - I enjoy it.
That being said, I hope to find patience and time to go through new works of the people I watch, and to post-process and publish something myself. Sometimes I miss dA.
