PhotographyThis is a photo I took almost ten years ago in Afghanistan. I was a bomb disposal technician in the Air Force largely working outside my training and skill-set. My team had been called to a little firebase in the back-hills of Zabul Province to dispose of some unexploded munitions, but the morning before I took this photo, a patrol was ambushed a couple miles from the base and was taking heavy casualties. There weren't really enough guys on the base to respond, so my EOD team went along to help as we could.Photography by swiftmoonphoto
Long story short, it was a pretty wild firefight. They gave us all medals and such.
But that's not really a photography thing, what is relevant to photography is this:
I always carried a crappy little point and shoot camera to help with the various reports that are required anytime you do anything over there. As I walked back onto the FOB I turned around to look at the valley where we had made our stand. Despite my understandably shell-sho

Dreams Contest - Update-2 Weeks LeftDreams Contest - Update-2 Weeks Left by Litavismindartist
So,I have decided to host my very first contest and I'm hoping lost of people will enter.I want to challenge you to think a little outside the box. Most artists have a comfort-zone and create their art within this.
The main theme of the contest is “Dreams”.
Dreams can be a rich source of inner wisdom, and they can be useful in a variety of contexts, can express feelings, and represent different emotions.Here's a chance to share your dreams through art.
Use your dreams as doorways to other dimensions. Our lives become richer and juicier when we learn to become active dreamers.
Famous quotes about Dreams:
“A dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world. “- Oscar Wilde
“Who looks outside,dreams;who looks inside,awakes.”

Would you like?Would you like to be under my skin?Would you like? by Stefymoondust
With those goose pimples
With all my pain
For everyone and everywhere foreigner.
Would you like to be
On my place of darkness
With broken heart
Illness in my chest nightmares all night long
Always ask what I did wrong?
Would you like to wear
My sad destiny with these deep scars
maybe ones you can see the truth
so dark night and my star.
Depression...Depression, by David Nicholas…Depression... by AussieDidge
“I’m fine,” the grieved yells
Feigned smile hides a world of angst
Dark thoughts have surfaced
Empty and soulless
Physically and mentally
Life grows bleak and cold
So ask this question
Come the ninth month or sometime
“Are you okay, friend?”
Shopping...Shopping, by David Nicholas…Shopping... by AussieDidge
Survey, spend and save
Plazas & markets we pave
For those hidden sales.
How do you folks shop?
Are you thrifty or cream crop?
The line’s drawn somewhere.
Malls open their gates
For all distinct tastes and traits
To help kick off trade.
Perhaps you like clothes?
Scan for shirts and skirts I s’pose
And some comfy shoes.
Is food a good call?
Buy full meals or coffees tall
To sate one’s cravings.
Guess gaming’s your thing
When new consoles pull your strings
They’re hard to resist.
‘Lest you hunt for toys
To reign in your girls and boys
For fears of tantrums
Would you flip for flicks?
Theatres slather ‘em thick
Hurry, popcorn’s there!
If one must be iced
Rings, chains and watches entice
At the jeweller’s joint.
Now for the odd ones
Which include banks, nails and hair
My rhymes now end there.
For the rich or poor
For one's needs or for grandeur
Praise our humble malls.
Merits o' the Mighty MaidenMerits o' the Mighty Maiden, by David NicholasMerits o' the Mighty Maiden by AussieDidge
A shooting star streaks ‘cross the heavenly sky
Blues and reds so vivid grown men would cry
Charming and friendly, to say nothing of her beauty
Duty of mine to state, she’s just a real cutie
Evolving list of feats, to go with her attire
Five decades of saving lives, from troubles dire
Goddess of our Earth, a saviour of the people
Has risked life and limb to fight foul equals
In with the crowds we hold in high esteem
Joining leagues and legions of legends supreme
Krypton’s last daughter, borne of Alura and Zor-El
Lost her family and home, to a sworn hell
Most of man would be torn up over this spiel
Not this young lady, with those famed guts of steel
Outsider or no, you can’t fault her tricks spree
Packing some punch for a pocket-sized pixie
Quick-witted in ways beyond language and art
Rumbles with fight finesse that’s worlds apart
Speed, vigour, strength and vision unmatched
Test her patience and your lif
