It's only my statement..

Journal Entry: Wed Apr 28, 2010, 11:40 PM
Don't read too much into it.

Ah, the fresh smell of a new entry. A new page for my thoughts to scribble on.
To start, god I love photography. It's marvelous. The world around us is so damned amazing, and people overlook it daily. I vow to never do that.
And perhaps that is what has sparked my endeavors to venture outside and get some shooting done, which I rarely used to do. You know, in that scary, bright, sunny place?

Also, I finally found somebody else to shoot!
You can expect to see lots more of her in my gallery, and hopefully some other models in the near future. I'm sure looking at self portrait after self portrait grows as tiresome for you as it does me.

In  the future, expect a lot more edge in my portraits in general. I've in the past done a lot of simple shots, and I've been happy with them. I'm ready to experiment from here on out.

Umm, as far as my writing, I should be back to feeding you my strange attempts at literature again soon. They tend to just come out whenever they feel the urge with complete disregard as to when I want to write.

Traditional art? Yeah I kinda realize more every day after seeing such amazing artists here on dA that I have no talent for it.

In the digital arts field... yeah. Just don't have time for it anymore. I may venture off into the exciting realm of photo manipulation soon though.

To my watchers, which now numbers one hundred and twenty, I love you all for appreciating my art! To all of you who frequently comment on my work, you have my undying gratitude for giving me your time. And on that note, I hope you'll all continue in your own artistic adventures.
And as always, stay deviant.

Roland

THOUGHT LOG - Loneliness

"Loneliness is an illness.
It's symptoms are depression, sadness, loss of self.
We aren't meant to survive alone. It drills into us, empties us out, and leaves us broken.

"Loneliness is a drug.
We live on it for too long, and we adapt to it. We can't function in crowds, we don't know how to interact, we can't break our cycle. It's a never ending loop, the twisted excuse for the circle of a so-called life.

"Loneliness is a demon.
Whispering in our ear. Telling us how to make it stop. How to ease the pain away. The pain of being alone. If we listen, we just keep drifting into the dark.

"Loneliness has a cure.
The cure is affection. The cure is friendship. The cure is love. The cure is one another.

"You will never escape loneliness alone."

Wash Up by StevenKaukUSING MY PHOTOGRAPHY

Under most circumstances, I prefer to keep my art sheltered. But, if there are any serious designers out there that wish to use my photography as stocks, please note me with a brief description of what you had in mind, and if possible some examples of your work.

I'd be honored if you did want to use my art for something serious. But I'd like to hope I won't see my artwork being used elsewhere without permission. That's just insulting.
Don't hesitate to ask. And thanks for reading.
Sincerely,

Roland

It is! It's not usual for me to find a mixture of ambience and vocals that work, but this band does.

If you find any more gems like this you should post em..my playlist could always use more expanding and you are the second person I know online to have similar tastes to music I do ^^..Thanks!

(Check out the artist Olive, her works are a bit older but some songs are just timeless to me..like "Smile", "Creature of Comfort", "Miracle", "Indulge Me" etc etc)
