Feature No. 7: Time to wrap up 2015

Journal Entry: Fri Dec 18, 2015, 8:51 PM
Personally, I can't complain, I have had a good year all around.
But in general terms, it's been a difficult year. The headlines speak for themselves: Terror or the fear thereof all over the place. Mass shootings in the US. Refugee crisis in Germany. Europe seemingly disintegrating. Global warming out of control. Donald Trump.
These disasters not withstanding, it's time to pay homage to those artists that have helped me to believe in the beauty of the human mind and creativity.

Journal History

Random Notes

4 June, 2012:
It's been one year ago today that I submitted my first photograph. I am thoroughly enjoying my activities here, and I am particularly glad about discovering great artwork. Although I don't have the time anymore to respond to each and every favorite, I am very grateful to all of you, and I'm trying to at least reply to all your comments.

28 September, 2012:

20,000+ favorites since I posted my first photograph back in June of 2011! A good reason to be happy and to celebrate. I would like to thank all of my watchers and friends here on dA for their continued interest and support.

15 January, 2013:

Now here's a mystery: I have a photo in my gallery that is entitled "Two Jaguars in Love" Two jaguars in love by NB-Photo that, as of yesterday, had accumulated 227 favorites and had been downloaded 78 times. Today I got notified that, after a seemingly long time, this photo has attracted another favorite, so the count went up to 228. However, at the same time the download count increased to 203!!! Assuming that dA's counting procedures work properly, that suggests that 125 people downloaded my photograph, but only 1 (one) of them picked this as a favorite. Isn't that odd???
I would completely understand that blatant discrepancy if this was some kind of (semi-)pornographic shot, because in that case, who would want to admit to the fact that they picked this as a favorite (for everyone else out there to verify). But hey, this is just wildlife photography. Maybe someone can enlighten me??!!
