Hello friends and Fellow deviants!! How have you all been? Hopefully good. I have been through a few changes in the pass few months. I recently quit my old job at Wendy's and now I work at a mail pre-sorting company, called Pitney Bowes. This job is reallly, reallly easy and really, really, really boring but I'm surrounded by hardworking, good people and it pays really well ($9.50 a hour. Best job ever! Well, so far at least). The only problem with this is that I have very little time to do things anymore. I work very tight and late hours, so if I'm not at work, I'm sleeping. But I have weekends off and do much of my personal stuff and relaxation then. And also, I have to go to college part-time now, instead of full-time as I hoped before but as long as I'm going to college this year, I'm fine with that.

As for the new pics and this summer, I'm overly excited! I have new ideas and I actually have money to bring them to life now. Plus, I can buy a new camera! I want a nikon D300s and of course, 85mm portrait lens. AND A macbook pro and A 27-inch iMac. All this stuff, I can actually afford and they will really help my photography skills!

Even more good news is that I have not only a equally passionate model, i have a make-up artist and a collaborative partner! Her name is Beth and she is her on dA!! Check out her work please :icontasteoftorment:!!! :D

Hopefully, More good news on the way. New pics are here too and more on the way! Look at them and let me know what you think!

Thank you and be at peace, my deviant friends!

Hello, my fellow deviants and devious friends :wave:! How are you? It seems every time I get really in focus with dA, I lose my internet thanks unpaid bills. The fall is starting out to be really awful for me. Fallout with friends, a rift with my parents, college seems farther and farther. It’s just a lot of stuff that keeps me heavy-hearted and can’t be overlooked but I’ll still fight it on. I have no choice but to.
My photography (and I really hate to say this) has been dwindling and lacking. I haven’t been shooting regularly like I should and I’m lacking models. I really can’t say I need to take a break because actually I’m still on summer break and I need something good to keep me going. Hopefully when I go to college (and I will!) my skills will be back where they were before, maybe even better.  My d40 have survived some cruel neglecting (I haven’t drop it! :phew:) but I still want a d80. I also been looking at some canon’s that really looks nice but no money means I can’t buy anything new. Still need a car more than anything
Soon I will have something worthwhile to look at on here, maybe a poem too. I have some ideas I’ve been working on and hopefully I get a good winter for it happen.  Also I’ve been wanting to get a good fall shoot before it goes. So please keep and touch and I’ll definitely do the same when I get the chance because I need the inspiration!

And Happy Holloween!!! Boo. :fear:

  • Drinking: in the hope of sucess of a DD!
I have just recently obtained 5,000 pageviews but I need more! I need to get even better at what I love to do even more than getting pageviews. So in lights of this I will try my hardest to get a Daily Deviation! By the looks of DD's I've seen ever since of being on dA, I have a CRAP load of work to do but I'll keep fighting the good fight in hopes I will see that lovely little symbol DD under my comments and the deviants that granted my this achievement. I have some ideas but models are harder to come by but I'll find away! :shakefist: Those who support, Thank you for all the help and love. I loves alls y'alls to pieces!:hug::glomp: And I plan on getting a subscription either before or after I get the DD (It would be wise to do it before)!

It's always nice to have a goal right? Even if it's nigh impossible!:D :shakefist:

Hello everyone who has been watching me. I'm sorry that I lost contact with you all. I've haven't had any way of getting to dA because I don't have an internet source. The only time can really get on is when I'm at a friends house or at the library (this is where i'm typing this!). I've finally graduate High school and now on my to community college. But I start in the fall and I pretty much have nothing to do at home. It's very boring. But with that aside, I'm excited to go and finally go to college. I can't wait to start my photography course. I need to find a certain style. Some that really suit my expression and taste and views with it being too boring. Most of the work I have now is good but its seems too messy. It's not organized. I think with college, I could find a good balance and stick to a main gerne while still doing others aswell.

Hopefully soon, I will have a macbook, a nikon d80(I know I just got the d40 not even a year ago but I really prefer that camera!),some camera equipment and lens, more models, better ideas, better editing skills, better pictures, a car, a cell phone or "celluar device" (need one badly! And I call it a device because with all of the crap they can do, can you really call it a phone?) I would also like a subscription here. I just need to get settled in more and I think i'll be ready!

Thanks for watching me and I hope you contiune to as I try to become better! :D

I'm tired. Graduation is right around the corner and I'm worried out of my brains!!! My writing spirit has died but my photography has gotten better but I need more lessons to become better. I have no actual plan after high school. I'm definitely not going to college. Well, I should rephrase that. I'm not going to a University college. I plan to go to a really great community college out in Ann Arbor, Mi. The college is called Washtenaw and the photography course is taught by Thomas Knoll. He is the guy who created Adobe Photoshop with his brother. So it should be very beneficial to my editing skills. But beyond that, I haven't a clue how to get my career going in photography. I'd like to do it for the purpose of art but I'd also like to do it for magazines, documentaries, freelancing and for a fun living. I just need to finish (and start, for that manner.) my second course of Digital Media and then I'll worry about the rest but if anyone has any suggestion, I'm all ears!

Thank you and I love you all for your work and support :hug:!

On by the way, this really isn't important but I decided to go to my prom. I wasn't at first because I think it's pointless (I still do) but my friend want me to go because its our last event at school!

My digital media teacher enter this picture dokurome.deviantart.com/art/An… in the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards of 2009 contest www.artandwriting.org/! I'm so excited :excited:! just being in it makes feel like I'm become a photographer! Soon I'll have all things I need to be what I always wanted to be...a human that can express his emotions with being afraid of what others might think! My friends to thank for that! And I have deviantART to thank as well! As I said before, if it wasn't for the artist on this site, I would even be into photography! :dance:
I'm happy to say that today is the day I first signed on to DeviantART! I never would have thought that I took such an interest in art and photography. And I'm happy to say that I'm willing and ready to be more of an photographer and share with everyone who cares!

Thank you DeviantART for the memories!

And Thank you :iconanyry: for the support!

There's nothing for me here anymore...Just shallow steps...on a beach. I could run for water (and I have) but there won't be enough for me to make tears. Deep grabs and scars is the after effect of leaving my isolation into a island only a few bodies away from empires. Heaven's sake has crumbled, slit by slit, onto false hopes in a vast socialism. Sicken by toxic, granted by unkind unknowns. But true bliss awakens by the lapse the sun, as the moon bring radiant and scintillating stars into my eyes...bringing a shine into this hallow heart. Somehow, the sky pushes me to delusion and seclusion. The mid-days are long winded and riddled with unwanted ennui, as the night grows closer and near to naught. Now to run away for these falsifications of kissing and hand shaking, I fall deep into almost thirteen hour slumbers...I've lost actions and words due to this process. And no dreams, just really bad bed soars...

It has been a slow dread of days yet the months pass rapidly through the summer. Reminders of an love interest surfaces to the top of my own ocean. For the girl who remain anonymous, who I thought was similar to me. Movies shows within my mind, over and over as if it was propaganda forcing me to take part to a task that had no relation to me. After several months, I realized...again...that I was wrong, graceless and sick! I have lost someone who was related to Marquis but not his depression. Sadly our bond has died and yet I still wonder for hope as if I can recover what we once had...I know deep down that this could never happen. I can only hope that she has a better existence than I will ever have and she will fulfill life as wishes and desires come to promise. But I must also get over her face...her charm, which I still carry to this very day. But this lullaby isn't easy to fall a sleep to. I must find another like me...it doesn't has to be akin to me but an intellectual. There aren't any upon this mass grassland...maybe If I ventured to the seaside..maybe there...I'd find my January heart...

At Long last! My Expiration date has finally come to terms...with just as much apathy as recent dates! Nothing seems to differ from from sixteen...In my case, seventeen is a garbge era full of false hope! Maybe if I was a zealous opticmistic than maybe I'd problaly feel more enthused about this somewhat meaningless day! An enventful party is out of the question, for I have not that many friends and the only true friends I have are...words! Words that bring meaning to stories and life itself! But soon, I will grow into maybe what my parents will fear out of every thing in their lives...their son become indentpent and able to think on his own without his parents laws!...They say that the last then they needs is some african American punk/goth/emo wannabe running around the world,ruining their family names...how tedious of them to think that! But enough about that...today is my date of existence! I should be happy! I'm finally getting want I most desired from time I first visited this site...a camera! To finally express my words with pictures! But they most realize that with dark their be no light and visa versa! It has to be a checkeredboard family...if we didn't have that than we would be swallow!

Affection...Adorement...Atonement to another's heart...Love is a top case mystery and the evidence of me having no relation is evident in my aura. At this point, my aura is still infatuated with Anomie's aphoticness, although we are upon a emotional disembarkment from each other. In reality, I see the girl who makes my heart flutter with timidness that helps rid my aloofness. Her aura is beyond my identitfication. Our eyes meet our faces while in the hallway. A qwelled "Hi", in the form of a sallow whisper added in with a demure smile came from my body. Her smile illuminated her aura. A gasp and a small giggle, which was very questionable, came from my maw. She makes my heart explode with uncommon intentions. I had the heart to say something enchanting yet these words couldn't form corretly in my head. So why ingress passionately into a desired love, when I yet to have the mind, heart and soul, not only ready to do such but corresponding together with me? Because of my bashfulness, I think its best to wait until my social skills become better than what they are now. Then, maybe, I will be a bit more joyful when I daydream about her lips pressed against mine...

As my mother and I take a small ride, I marveled the sight of the clouds after a small precipitation. They all exhibited the shade of grey, yet different tones and hues. Some clouds were simple and others were complex with mixtures of all. The most amazing clouds were the ones that hid the luminous sun but showed proof of its decent. And somewhere, in the lull firmament, the moon was making a primeful, alightful arrival. Viewing these visions made me ponder, “Does the sky have emotions?” How it has unexpected change, “Did God give it a “free-will” or a conscience? Did it care if its emotions appease anyone?” How the warm luminescence made people blissful and animated, while the winter feeds somber emotions, such as dreariness and depression, in which I favored most. The creativity of the clouds and sky made my heart feel envious to the fact of its unmatched beauty and untamed freedom. But we took our final road to our abode; a mountainous and lavishing cloud came into my aspect. Such a panorama, gave me such a ghastly feel for its size was unseen before. But the sight of last rays of the sun peering over the towering cloud and feelings of an early moon rising behind us, made my mind full of wonderings and my heart breathless…

My emotions are on Burning Bridge. To my advantage, I'll surely lose,
It's either burn in an inferno or fall to extreme calamities,
I'll to have made a choice but my slow brain waves are beyond confused,
I'm sick with bereavement and isolation, I need love's remedies,
I sit laugh at myself, while my hands are burned by the black snowflakes
Hold or give my love, am I only a fabricated dream?
In the past, I had a vow to make my a stand and do what ever it takes,
Now at life's end, I couldn't taste the cakes…sweet cream,
Now the smell of fires hallucinate in my body, it must be the ashes,
It seems like love is only in my seclusion,
The fires get to me and singe my lashes,
I hate looking in your eye because it seems like all this is just an illusion,
It hurts my heart when I speak lost words to you, so I try to remain aloof
Now my body is hurled over the ledge, my mind has closes
The water gleaming is in my tears. Death is near and the heated blood on lips is the proof
With my last…I fall off…before my everything…decomposes
All in All, I would fail in the end, whether burn or leap
Time is burning, burning away, so let me and the tide sleep.

Life gets tiring by the day
I find out that my soul has lost its way
When I see you, my mind is filled with words but I have not to say
To get closer to you and speak loving words to you, I pray
Help me find your love, for I grow empty with emotions
My troubles are bigger than any land, deeper than any ocean
I'm speaking broken languages, how can I communicate
Your anxieties, my depression can relate
I spoken written words, your soul entwined our fate
Hopefully, to catch your affection, I am not to late
Peacefully be with "I" and "me"
and we promise that we will never flee...
