I'd like you to pimp this group:


This group is dedicated to the 'a photo a week for a year' challenge. The next challenge will start in January and some different challenges are probably being hosted as well next year! We'd be happy to see more participants trying to finish the challenge next year.

If you wouldn't mind including my editorial to the lit community in the next issue: [link]

I feel some of the issues raised in there are good for the entire dA community to reflect upon.

Thank you! :heart:

Also, a slightly controversial whoa: [link] I understand if it is not included, I just like stuff that reflects a different point of view.

Beautiful snow art!! It's the beginning of summer here for us in Australia...never feels like Christmas to me, I miss the snow and cold weather (though this is the coldest first week of winter in 60 years for us here...I'm loving it! lol)
