Thank you Eric Idle and Spamalot for the title!
Nope, I'm not dead. Life happened and dA sorta got left in the dust. I've decided to come back though and start submitting some of the work I've been doing since then. I got a schmancy digital SLR (Canon EOS 30D) a few years back so everything I submit now will of course be digital. Oddly I think that development has been a contributing factor in allowing me to be more creative with my photography.
At any rate, I'm starting by submitting the oldest shot from my post deviant period and will work my way up to the most recent. Here's hoping people are still around and enjoying my work here on dA!
