January's Member of the Month!January's Member of the Month:
1. Tell us about yourself...
Hmm, I'm Olga from sunny Greece. I feel I have the sun under my skin, can't live without it and it defines me.. A single sun ray is enough to make me smile!
I love sea and how it's changing colors during the day or seasons, so inspiring!
I also love those tiny fluffy clouds and I envy them because they travel above us and watch all this beauty nature has!
2. Who or what inspired you to start photography?
I 'm not really sure, I've never thought about it...
I remember myself begging my parents to buy me a camera when I was about 8 or 9.
I think the inspiration had always been the need to capture the beauty around me,
or to capture the precious moments of my life, the people I love.
3. Who are your favorite artist(s)?

So it's been a very windy last couple of days here in Philly, Hurricane Sandy passed us by fortunately and we didn't even get any power outages. Looking at the news, New Jersey and NYC got hit hard so I hope everyone there is safe and well!!!!
I haven't taken any new photos recently, I still have quite a lot to go through from the past year or so (as I had been so unproductive going through them all). I will hopefully take some over the next month or so, although the best of autumn will most likely of passed by which is a shame.
Now onto the features!!!!!!

Transformers: We Came in WarTransformers: We Came in War
Setting: Sometime during the Bay films
Characters: Optimus Prime
We came to this planet because ours was gone.
The quest for power consumed our home. The need for domination destroyed us. Still we live, and yet there is a piece in each of us that has been decimated forever. We will never recover what we have lost.
I look down upon this planet, and I wonder why we try.
It is evident by now that we have lost the capacity for peace. War follows in our wake. We came to retrieve the AllSpark, which has long since been lost, and we are still here. All that came of attempting to revive our planet was the relocation of the war from our planet of death to this planet of life. There is so much life on this planet. All of it we have sworn to protect. This is the promise we have made to them. But the promise would not need to have been made if we had never co
dead dog julyI.
the summer heat lays limp in the city’s lap,
breathing long oppressive breaths.
it does not even lift its lolling head
to bark out hoarse indignancy
when a strange man brings the mail.
there might be heavy rain today,
brought by some swollen, murmuring cloud.
the world will whirl and howl,
then settle down,
to die a little more.
o, quickly, love,
press your back against the wall in fear
as the universe spreads her arms and
shuts her eyes
and starts to summon the end of all things.
come with me
to the place of windows full of speechless afternoon
hot windy whispers of half-formed solutions and resolutions,
sweltering sunlit meadows we’ll wander and then forget.
o quickly, love,
let’s to the season of forgetting
and unwind all of our harshest memories
and fill the universe’s mouth
with mute cotton.
i’ll whisper these words to you some evening
with all my exigency in the hand i rest on your arm—
Keep in Touch!
