|The value of life lies not in the length of days, but in the use we make of them; a man may live long, yet live very little.|
- Michel de Montaigne
Chapter 1“Tommy!” A shrill voice echoed in the house, stirring Niko from his dreams. He was groggy, unsure if he was still asleep, and then his mom’s voice echoed again through the house. “Tommy…! No…” It was easy to hear the sobs start on the floor below. Niko got out of bed, and slipped out of his room. It was still a plain white from when they moved from Maine and into this New York house when he was eight, and he felt out of place in the peach colored hall. He peered past the stairs and down to the linoleum floor. He could see two black high heels – his mother’s shoes – and could see shChapter 1 by *BethyLuv215

|This group came to be from our desire ( Codruta's and mine) to make a place of our own on DA. A place to be ourselves and to be togeter with other people that see the world in a similar way. We like many things here on DA and we dislike other things as well. |
Art means not only photography. We don't care about the quality of the photo AS LONG as it has feeling. For ourselves didn't have good cameras and struggled a lot to be taken seriously by others.
Art is life and life is art, if you know how to live it. And joy, happiness, are present in our life as well as grief, desolation and mourning. This group is about us and others that feel the same, about our feelings, and the way we manage (or sometimes not) to turn what we feel in art.
I am sorry, but you are not kept here against your will. If you think you don't feel the same, you are free to leave. But not ask of us to give up what we are and what we like.

Monochrome is a term generally used to describe painting, drawing, design, or photograph in one color or shades of one color. Monochromatic light is light of a single wavelength, though in practice it can refer to light of a narrow wavelength range. A monochromatic object or image is one whose range of colors consists of shades of a single color or hue; monochrome images in neutral colors are also known as grayscale or black-and-white.
For an image, the term monochrome is usually taken to mean the same as black-and-white or, more likely, grayscale, but may also be used to refer to other combinations containing only tones of a single color, such as green-and-white or green-and-black. It may also refer to sepia displaying tones from light tan to dark brown or cyanotype (“blueprint”) images, and early photographic methods such as Ambrotype, Tintype and Daguerreotype, each of which may be used to produce a monochromatic image.
Philosophy is the study of general and fundamental problems concerning matters such as existence, knowledge, values, reason, mind, and language. It is distinguished from other ways of addressing fundamental questions (such as mysticism, myth, or the arts) by its critical, generally systematic approach...
The shorter version of all that's writen above:
monochrome pictures only
works need to have a connection with some philosophical current (eg. realism, empiricism, monism)
works need to express/transmit/have a meaning
