I realize now that I've been away from dA for over two years. It was never my intention to disappear from the face of the earth, at least the dA's earth. j/k
I fell for the traditional excuse that "life just took too much off me" and simply procrastinated!
I devoted most of my time to photography, leaving my fractal making hobby alone for a while. My connection to DeviantArt was always through my fractals even though I did post some of my photography. It is the same love for fractal making that brings me back now... but before getting to it I do have to post one picture that explains half of the time I was away for.
It portrays my best piece of art in life!
