Hi there,

In case there is anyone still reading this, I'm sure you have noticed my severe inactivity here on dA. And the reason is that I do not really like dA anymore. 

To be honest, my interest in dA had been dwindling for some time, but ever since they have changed the layout and the workings of the site, I have come to really dislike it. It did take me quite a long time to get used to the layout changes, but they don't have that much of an inpact on the actual concept of the site, so I can live with them. But I absolutely loathe the way dA works (or rather doesn't work) now. I mean, maybe it's just me, being on here for over seven years, and grumpy that things are not like they used to be, but it seems to me that whenever you upload a new deviation, and do not have thousands of watchers, nobody sees it. I get it, there are millions of users on here, uploading new art every day, but they have been here before, too. And I used to get views and faves even without spamming every group possible. Now I don't. At all. Sometimes uploading a new deviation into groups helps. But many of the groups are dead. Actually, because of all this, I feel like the whole of deviantART is dead. I have exactly 591 watchers as of now. How many of them are dead accounts, too? The dA has grown so impossibly large, that you either have a huge army of fans and followers, or don't get seen at all. 

Damn, this sounds like me whining because people do not fave my photos like they once did, and blaming it on dA. Well, I am, basically. But I slowly stopped caring about dA about two years ago, so I don't expect anything to change, and I don't even want it to. dA is the reason I love photography as much as I do, it kept me motivated to take more and more photos, to get better, and it has also shown me that my effort was worth something, with my photos placing in contests and ultimately by being awarded a Daily Deviation. So I'm not going to do anything dramatic, like deactivating my account or something, there is no reason why. I am proud of my gallery, I still want people to see it. Moreover, I have photos to accept and decline in groups I contribute to, and even my own photos I haven't uploaded yet! Sometimes I get the urge to post something on here, and that's when their time will come. 

I once thought of dA as my second home, I used to spend hours on here. Now it's just a place I occasionally visit, if I remember to. 

See ya all later, and happy holidays in advance, folks!

Residence: Praha (Prague), Bohemia, Czech Republic, Central Europe

Hey there! As you probably noticed, I am a big photography lover, and I like to spend my free time with a camera in my hand. And if the camera is pointed at some fluffy, feathered or scaled living thing, it is even better!
Besides photography, I also greatly enjoy art, languages, history, geography and, of course, biology.

I've been taking pictures for about six or seven years, but I still have a lot to learn and perfect. I use Canon 500D for taking almost all my photos, and Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop Elements for post-processing.

Very well, then. Now that I've properly introduced myself, you can proceed to browse through my gallery - I hope you will like it!
