Whys and whereforesQ&A timeWhys and wherefores by WelshWench
Recently I find I get asked a few questions over and over again, so I thought I'd put a Q&A here and save myself the trouble of typing/copy-pasting every time
Why do you feature your "non-fractal faves" and not fractal art?
Because fractal art is not my sole artistic interest; because so many other people do feature fractals; because looking through the fractal gallery - if you can close your mind to the horrendous number of miscats - is relatively quick compared to looking through some of the other galleries and is something most fractal artists do, I suspect. So I prefer to feature work that, hopefully, not so many of you will have seen.
Why don't you comment as much as you used to?
I spend less time on dA than I used to.
Why aren't you around as much as you used to be?
Because I'm spending more of my "me time" on photography than I was until recently (although it's rare a day goes by without me opening UF) and because the attraction dA had for me h

Hello peeps! I hope everyone had a good Xmas and send you all my belated wishes for a Happy New Year.
I won't bore you with the details - you'll be glad to know - but one thing and another has kept me out of commission for the past couple of weeks so I am waaaaaay behind (again ) with my watch list and in responding to comments.
Bear with me while I do my best to catch up.
Ramblings and rantsand other stuffRamblings and rants by WelshWench
I see from various journals around dA that the ripperscum are, apparently, out in force right now. Not that they ever go away
You know what angers me as much as the actions of the people who take the fruits of someone else's hard work and post it elsewhere? The owners of certain sites, especially the "mobile phone wallpaper/theme" variety who play lip service to copyright law. They know that a very, very high percentage of the images uploaded aren't the original work of the person uploading it. I mean, c'mon, how hard is to to work out that no-one, and I mean no-one is going to have hundreds, let alone thousands, of pieces of original work that they are going to give away to the site, so that the site can make money off them!
The site owners are well aware that the chances of the original artist finding a rip is low, so it's not a lot of skin off their nose to comply with a take-down notice. If they can be bothered to, that is. So they put the r
Winter's ArrivedBrrrrrrrr!!Winter's Arrived by WelshWench
Snow two days running, blimey! Winter's arrived here but autumn hadn't quite finished, as the leaves on the trees in some of these pics show ...
I hope grimleyfiendish appreciates that I did get off my backside and get out in the snow, unlike last year when I wimped out Mind you, I didn't stay out for very long - 5 minutes in the car and half an hour in the cemetery were enough for me. Must buy a warmer jacket and find my thermal socks
