The Blind Poet aka KiwiVagabond on Ipernity
this will give a wider perspective on my mainly analogue and sometimes digital love affair with all things photography. I am often months behind what I am really doing on Aminus3 and I must confess to falling off the daily wagon for some time in 2017. You may find some articles I have written on Ipernity (and they are old too)but you may find interesting. I am enjoying trying to get back into Animus3 this year after that getting off the daily image treadmill time, which one can end up with one posting meaningless images just because you are addicted and want to be in that image number bracket.

Fantastic to see this in the spotlight. You could crop the thumbnail so that her face is visible. You can do that by going to the image page and clicking on IMG. Under the thumbnail is a link for cropping it.
