Romy in memoriam by NB-Photo
Romy in memoriam
After a short battle with cancer, we had to put our cat Romy (1999-2015) to sleep yesterday. I have no words to describe our pain.
This is a picture I made when she was just over two years old. She was the sweetest.

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??!!

Hello, nice to meet you, your photos can use as reference? That is, positions or colors imitate, not copy, not tracing, or anything similar. And of course, if using a reference, would give him credit for that. Well I hope not to be annoying or inappropriate. From already thank Norbert!
