Urbex #18Environmental Graffit has some great examples of abandoned churches. As does deviantART! Churches can be surrealistic places whether they are abandoned or not and indeed in some of the villages surrounding the area where I live in the UK there are some fantastically creepy churches that nobody ever seems to go in anymore.. So whether you visit a church regularly or not, enjoy the forgotten churches showcased below...

Hands up if you like prawns??!!!! Definitely not I, not since my Mother once told me they hung around the sewers in the sea anyway. But prawns are popular globally, almost - and here are some great examples of how you can get very creative with the little poo dwelling crustaceans...
Will you ever eat them again?

Celebrating Diversity #27The idea behind the Celebrating Diversity Project is to post an article with deviations outside of my area of expertise here on deviantART. Therefore I decided to browse away from Photography, and venture into areas that I know little about!
I strongly encourage you to step out of your zone of comfort and take the time to discover or re-discover other types of art. The world is full of wonder and beauty, we just need to take the time and open our minds to see even more of it - embrace the diversity of it!

Here's a bit of random info - the worlds tallest cake was 108 feet tall and weighed in at 20 tons. Nom. The oldest cake in the world is 2 pieces from the wedding cake of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert dated 1840 (yuck!) And finally the most expensive cake ever baked was $20 million - no it wasn't the tallest cake talked of above, it just happened to have diamonds on it!

PE: Site Updates and How to Welcome ThemSite Updates and How to Welcome Them
This article was written due to the recent uproar from some groups of the community because of the new username symbols.
Change is something handled differently by everyone. Some people accustom to change very quickly, others may take a long time or may not adjust to change at all. In regards to deviantART Site Updates, it's important to know ways to welcome change and embrace it. You are not expected to love every feature that is released, but giving it a chance before bashing it is a right step forward.
Before reading on, please note that this article is not directed at any one individual, but as a community as a whole. All views expressed in this article are mine and mine alone and do not reflect the views of deviantART.com.
When a new feature is released, most deviants give their first impressions of said feature. Some may even react like this:

All Snapped Up .14 ~ stefangrosjean~ An interview of a talented artist in our General Photography Community
Tell us a bit about yourself, stefangrosjean! How did you get into photography and why?
I'm a self-taught photographer and I never had any formal training. I started because I wanted to capture beauty.
As you are a self-taught photographer, and you've never had any formal training, how did you get to the stage you are now?
I read tutorials and books and watch videos, but above all I practice and conduct experiments. I'm almost every other day in the studio working on light experiments.
Why are you on deviantART?
Because my viewers are here.
What type of People & Portraits photography do you most like to do and why?
Almost everything I do is in "artistic nude" or "glamour", but I think of my work as "erotic photography". I'm afraid there is no such category on dA which is a shame.
Forum Features #36 - September: Senses!Once again, the Community Relations team is here to feature the artworks of deviantART's beloved forumers!
Once a month, we select one active member from the forums and we feature his or her gallery. This is someone we believe represents the forums well with both good forum-abilities and art.
As we're kind (and awesome), we also decided to give an opportunity for everybody to get featured! Every month, we create a thread in the Deviation Thumbshare Forum with a particular theme. This thread is made into a sticky for easy access. All you have to do is post thumbs of your artwork that match the theme and, at the end of the month, we select our favorite thumbs from that thread and feature them in the next news article.
The best thing is that being an active member of the forums is the only requirement!
Featured Forumer of the Month: deVere.
To Be Seen .58A weekly article featuring five photographers from all areas in the deviantART community. Spare a bit of time to take a gander at the photographs and their respective galleries showcased below!

Once upon a time, I was a volunteer, and speaking from experience, it can be a both blessing and a curse.
I believe that many current and former volunteers will agree with that sentiment and I feel it's important to explain a bit about why I believe this to be true.
Maybe you're not aware of the variety of ways people join the volunteer team. As per FAQ #85: Can I be a volunteer on deviantART? many people send in an application to express their interest in joining the team and I go through those applications and s
a dangerous hallucinationThe light coming through the window was bright,
much too bright.
Even though my eyes were closed
I could see it-
The skin of my arms prickled,
sweat dripped from my brow.
It was two in the afternoon but…
the sun was setting
through the window facing east.
I should have seen the hutch,
shelves lined with bone china
decorated with delicate leaves and vines.
I was so thirsty
and reaching for cups that should have been there.
Instead I found a billboard of butterflies,
the colors raging
more than any rainbow
I'd ever seen.
Their wings fluttered and flashed
yet somehow they moved in slow motion.
I wanted to stand,
wanted to reach out and touch them but…
I couldn't move,
and yet I laughed
ignoring my dry mouth
and the tingling in my feet.
There was a tempest
on the rise
and in my blood.
A sugar rush disguised
as a riot of butterflies
and they were swarming me.
There was a small vial
of insulin in my pocket
that I nev
