This is not a HUFF rant or any such thing. I was going to quietly slip away from DPC for a while without a word but felt that that would not be fair or respectful to my many friends here, so,....

I have decided to quit my account and have asked SC to delete it, I know they can do it as I have seen many removed from here before and I IMPLORE them to do this.

I need to get away for a while, find myself artistically, musically, whatever, I just feel like it is time for a change (typical Gemini).
I have no idea how long this will take but I just wanted to say a big THANK YOU to all my friends here for their support and help, to the SC (some of whom I have gotten to know quite well).
I have been here for 6 years entered quite a few challenges and contests done many things in DPCO and DPL and I have tried to be helpful when asked questions.

This place taught me a lot about the photography and the very fact that I have confidence and ability to go out into the world and call myself a PHOTOGRAPHER is down to DPC community and for this I thank you deeply from my heart.

I will make sure the door don't hit me in the ass on the way out LOL.

Most people that know me have a way of contacting me, if you would like to stay in touch then add me on facebook HERE

THANK YOU ALL, especially Team Poland, team Nikon, Team Glasseye for giving me the honor to call myself capt.

I can't imagine dpc without you... I'm happy for you that you're doing something for yourself but for me, I'm sad...

Take care, my friend.

I concur with Irene's sentiment. This is sad for us who call you friend.

Could not believe my eyes when I saw this thread... This place will not be the same without you, for sure. I am sad to see you go, although I am sure you will enjoy the journey ahead.

Thank you for being a friend, a wonderful captain -- I have learned so much from you.

Go Polska and Team Glasseye!!

Hey Marac - why not just take a break without deleting your account?

Make sure you keep on sharing through FB.

I'd really like you not to have your account deleted, we'll lose some great shots. Anyway, all the best for you and hopefully see you here again sometime.

Marac

Do us a favour and do not delete your account! I enjoy looking thru your port from time to time. Would be a shame.

PS. Pick up your socks in the football pool. My son is running away with it :)

Must admit hugely surprised at this.

Kudos for making the decision though.

Keep the account intact - lots of work in there that a lot of people admire.

Good luck!

Thanks for the nice farewell. Best of luck to you, and the door is always open if you want to return. Cheers,
06/14/2010 10:01:37 AM · #13
Well, I'll miss you too :-( It would be lovely if you'd not delete the account, so those who've yet to "meet" you could continue to be inspired by your portfolio of challenge entries.

You are true to yourself and your art...and I appreciate that! I hope that we will continue to see your beautiful work. Take care.

Do it - go and get some fresh inspiration and enjoy yourself - it can only be to the good :- )

MAK!! Sniff sniff! I hate it that you are going, and it really won't be the same without you! And I'd like to put my plea in too to: keep your account open so you can return any time you decide you want to. And Leo's right. Your work is so amazing, so please allow us to browse thru it for inspiration.

sniffle.

I hate to see you go. I really do appreciate your style of photography. Take care and enjoy your life!!

Wow...I suddenly feel very sad. DPC will be a little emptier without you, but you have to be true to yourself! As has already been said, I wish you would leave your inspiration for us to look at but it's your art and you deserver your wishes respected. Best of luck to you and I wish you only the VERY best!! :(

I will also miss you here, MAK... And I don't see why would you (or anyone, for that matter) want to delete the portfolio in which you put so much effort and soul over the years, and which people would undoubtedly continue to enjoy and learn from long after you go... This is a part of your legacy on this Earth, man, don't erase it! (sorry for the pathos, but I mean it :)) ...and you never know, maybe you will decide to come back here after some time "in the real world". You will find it much easier to do if your portfolio is still here waiting for your return.
Good luck with whatever you decide to do!

I'd like to echo the sentiments of others. It's a bummer that you have to go, but it would be great if you could leave your visual memories with us. You have a lot of great stuff, and it would be a shame for it to disappear. And who knows, maybe the call of DPC might lure you back in some day :)

Best of luck to you and i hope you find something inspiring on your new journey :)
