Thanks for all the amazing comments in my previous post about introducing more people to Steemit. I have just under 700 followers (follow me) so to get 90 comments is amazing. I don't think you'd ever see that kinda interaction on other social media. 👍👍👍
This song is about believing in yourself and determining your own future without following what everyone else is doing. It's exclusively for Steemit (but especially for @kingscrown @mynameisbrian and @thebluepanda) 🎁

Meow Wolf in Santa Fe, New Mexico, is hard to find words for. They describe it as an
immersive art installation which covers it broadly. And maybe broadly is the only way it should be covered. Words don't do it justice. Pictures don't do it justice. I didn't take more than a couple pictures inside of it because I knew they would end up a pale reflection.
Meow Wolf is one hell of an installation. Upon entry you are suddenly in a rather strange, surprising environment. As you go deeper, it just gets stranger. There are a lot of surprises waiting for you. Let it take you and you will feel like an explorer of a creative pocket of reality unlike any other.
And it is immersive. Nothing within is half-assed. This is a bonafide, whole-assed multidimensional flow of artistry. To call it impressive is an understatement. It is awesome, in the traditional definition of the word. It's mind-boggling how it was even planned and built.
You've noticed by now tha
Since I started posting at Steemit I've often found it hard to convince friends to sign up and start posting. It seems that when you introduce the idea of being paid for your content it raises the inevitable question of how it's possible. It's fun to keep trying, and to keep reassuring people that the system really does work.
Some street shots from NYC using my lovely Zorki 3.
Weather was mostly terrible but it was a nice trip. I brought 4 cameras with me (idiot) and ended up shooting mostly with my phone! Nevertheless I managed to snap a few with this vintage russian rangefinder.
I woke up thinking about circles. It may have been the outline of the white sun shining through the bedroom curtains this morning, or the circular lip of my porcelain coffee cup. The fact is I've been going round in circles all morning.
I have a fascination with alternative uses for printed text and the handwritten word, this led me to experiment with cutting circles out of book text. After all I want my art to be well read. Do you know how hard it is to cut out perfect circles at 7 a.m. after only one cup of coffee? Really hard!
Hey guys, welcome back for another journey! Today is not a great day for me: so much to do. I have too many deadlines approaching and, if that's not enough, last night I left my phone in the car of a girl I will see in a few days. But I should not care... it's Friday! But ... why am I talking about this? Let's talk about serious things... let's talk about the center of the Milky Way, our home.
Our Milky Way is huge: 100,000 light years! Yes. Light needs 100,000 years to travel along the diameter (Milky Way looks like a disk from above). It is made up of billions of stars. Inside of it there is everything you can imagine: emission nebulae, reflection nebulae, dark nebulae, stars, millions of other probably uninhabited (?) planets and much more. All these objects (including our beloved solar system) rotate together around the so-called galactic center [click to enlarge].
The story is about a merchant who wrongly picks a rose for his daughter Lily from the garden of a lion. The lion is really an enchanted prince who becomes a lion in the day and turns back into a prince in the evening. The merchant has to agree to give his daughter to the lion. So Lily goes off to meet the lion but finds him in the form of a prince. Lily and the prince marry, but the prince ends up turning into a dove and flying around the world for 7 years, until becoming a lion again. In his lion form he then begins to fight a dragon, who is really an enchanted princess, and whilst all this is going on poor Lily is looking for her lost prince.
I am planning to create a Facebook advertisement for Steemit.com. I need an image to use for the add. Their recommended size is 1,200 x 628 pixels. The image will be shrunk down about 4-5x once it is placed in the ad though, so it needs to be something that will look good small. Also, they recommend having little to no text in the image.
Here is an example, just to show what one looks like:
Daily photo selection is aimed to stimulate photographers in their search of quality. One of the elements that should always be included with your photos, are the information on equipment and exposure data. That way you will give valuable lesson to other photographers, and they will undoubtly respond with more upvotes.
@ecuadorianin let us see mysterious Valley of Ghosts in the Crimean resort of Alushta…
A master of monochrome, @foxkoit puts his cheap but effective Sony 5100, to a good use in the street again…
Hello Steeminans. I promised you a new story for the next painting that was part of the art exhibition in Denmark, 2012.
This particular one is actually unfinished, I simply couldn't continue on it, don't really know why. The element in the middle was so nicely painted and there were so many details to take care of already (face, hair etc.), that when I got to the background, all I could do was a simple warm
light, a candlelight.
Oil painting. Size: 60x40 cm
My mom had a middle sized wooden statue in her bedroom, so when I was at her place for a visit, I immediately got inspired from it. Was very much into the obscure style at that time, and that statue seemed perfect as a subject. I don't think she still has it today, but what matters is that I captured the moment.

칼이 그려진 초록색 국기, 터번, 석유, 재벌. 국내에 거의 알려지지 않았던 아라비아 반도의 역사와 문화를 소개하는 <아라비아의 길-사우디아라비아의 역사와 문화> 특별전이 서울 국립중앙박물관에서 2017.05.09부터 시작되었다.
유향 교역의 중심지이자 이슬람교가 창시된 이후 많은 순례자들이 모여드는 아라비아 반도는 국내에서는 미지의 지역이자 신비로운 상상 속의 장소이다. 기원전 4천년 경 제작된 인간 모양의 돌 조각부터 이슬람 성지 메카의 카바 신전을 장식했던 문까지 466 점의 다양한 전시품들을 선보이고 있다.
아라비아의 반도의 선사 시대부터 오아시스에 핀 다양한 문명들, 이슬람교의 발생과 20세기 초 사우디아라비아의 건국에 이르는 긴 역사를 느낄 수 있는 이번
