I have been away

Fri Aug 14, 2015, 4:56 AM
To all of my friends and watchers at deviatArt: I owe you a big apology!

I have been away for a very long time, sporadically looking in, because of a bad conscience, or in the hope of picking up where I left off and staying on again. Instead I failed to stay.

In order to explain my failure I need to share some background about me. I started being active on dA after I lost my business and everything with it (around end of 2011). I managed to keep my camera gear and decided to do things I love for "now", while dealing with the consequences of breakdown (and burnout)... as a kind of balance. I danced a great deal, photographed a great deal and was here at deviantArt.

Here and in the rooms I danced I made friends and got in touch with people who inspired me. Especially from you fine people at dA I got a great deal of wonderful positive Karma! I am and will always remain grateful!

Last year I had reached the point where my "time out" was no longer sustainable and I had to get much more serious about rebuilding my business. By now I am starting to stand on my own two feet again and can see a future ahead.

Under the new circumstances I regrettably had no time left for dA. My camera(s ... I do have one in my phone as well) did remain close to me though. In other words I have a backlog, which I want to share with you!

End of July I took my first vacation since I started rebuilding my business. I was in Sweden with the family of my life partner in the countryside and without Internet (virtually none). I did notice that I got a DD (thank you hosagu !!!), but could not act on that. It was a kind and a kind of a wakeup call. Ever since I wanted to find the time to get back here and stay!

So here I am. I'm gonna pick up the pick up the pieces now and remain,

sincerely yours,

Bassem Tamimi

Street Photography

I love to do street photography, and always like to see the shots my fellow street photographers share at dA. I am therefore member in these groups.

Thanks for the fav, my dear!!!
I've just read your journal!!! I'm very glad to read what I've just read:I'm in a similar situation now, because I'm in a sort of "burnout" about my job and all my activities seem to loose their sense.
But I wish to go on watching and appreciating all the beauty on dA.
I hope you spent a wonderful birthday!
