I am Alive!

Hi Everyone,

Well its has been a long time since I was last active on dA, but I am thinking about giving it another go. =D

Its been a long time since my last Photo post and even longer since a Journal update.

For now this is just a quick update for those of you amazing people who still follow me, that I am coming back. I have a huge back log of messages to go through, and I do not have internet at home, so this will be done at work during lunch. So please bare with me.

I am going to be doing a massive cull of my old work, as much as I enjoy it, I think its time for an update.

I have done some more travelling during my absence from dA, and been experimenting with different formats of photography that I will share with you all.

For those of you who cannot wait, can click on the links below for my different social media profiles or can click here for my blog:

See you soon.
Mike.
