It's been a while since posting a meme, and I happened to stumble across this one on deviantArt...

13 years? Lemme check... huh, dA only says 12. I claim almost 13.
the-boggyb: Six inches tall, and armed to the teeth, a fine soldier he made. And his name was Boggy B.
I picked it because at the time I was going by the handle of BoggyB and that was taken on dA, so the-boggyb it is. It's an old name as these days I almost entirely go by Torkell - the only places where I still use boggyb are dA and LJ (both cases because I've just not got round to paying to rename).
Um... Photographer, Programmer, Explorer?
Better suggestions on the back of a postcard :)
Almost always right-handed, though I tend to be ambidextrous when using the laptop's keyboard-mouse-thing.
Either a desktop screenshot or an experimental photograph. Let's see...
Multiple monitors rule
A screenshot! In particular, a screenshot showing off a multiple monitor desktop which is common these days but most certainly wasn't back in 2004.
Photographs, particularly ones where I'm playing around with the light and the composition trying to capture a specific view or idea of something.
A Fool's Reward II
Team House Group
Drawing. I'm terrible at actually creating two-dimensional art - hence why all my submissions start with a photograph.
No idea. Possibly something from elemnar? Hold on a moment while I scroll back through my faves...
The Hollow Victory by aridante
Huh. Did not expect that as my oldest fave (elemnar has #2 with Dozing Lynx).
Whatever catches my fancy. Recently it's been a fair amount of fanart (some from rather obscure fandoms), mixed with images that I find impressive and/or moving.
The Lure of a Book by FictionChick
_.Scarcely Unseen._ by UNIesque
Keladry of Mindelan and Peach by Klork
Two Halves of a Whole by yuumei
I can't come up with just one, so here's my top three (in no particular order, with a semi-random upload for each):
Dance like no-one's looking
Keeper of Dawn, Guardian of Dusk
I have no idea! So here's a semi-random collection from my dA friends list:
Well, my sister has a dA account so there's obviously her. Outside of immediate family... pleaseremove/pleaseremove I've know since forever. And then there's olego/olego who if I remember rightly gave me an invite code for LJ all those years ago and got me into the whole social network thing.
For the digital photos I tend to use an Olympus C3030-ZOOM. It's a very old compact digital but has a nice fast lens and full manual control (something which is missing in a lot of modern compacts, and which I occasionally find invaluable when I'm trying for a particular balance between aperture and exposure). I do have newer cameras, but I'll still sometimes dig the old Olympus out as I'm used to it and know how to make it achieve what I want.
For film, an even older Nikon F-301 manual-focus SLR. There's something quite satisfying about creating photos on actual film that you don't get with digital cameras.
Somewhere I'm out exploring, particularly if it's out in the countryside and there's a glorious sky.
I don't have many memories of the dA community as I never got really involved with it - my uploads only get a low number of views and I'm not part of any groups/communities/whatever-they're-call
