How'd you feel when you admire someone's work (and you honestly do), without any bad intention whatsoever, but you get the kind of treatment that you just do NOT expect??
You see, I love this photographer's work, soooo much! His work is just awesome! Well anyway, to photos that I feel really touching, presenting and whatever, I'd leave comments. Not JUST any comment, but ones that I felt about after viewing his piece of art. I'm not saying I'm good with art or whatever but, I'm learning to see the beauty of art in his photos. And I am selective too. I left comments on his nature works mostly cause I love anything about nature. Sunsets, sunrises, trees, you name it. And I'm not ashamed to say that I'm one of his great fans. I'd visit his page just to view any nature photos that he posted.
Well lately, I noticed this photographer's numerous pieces of nature shots. Man! His touches are just amazing and breathtakingly beautiful! I don't know much on camera shots or anything about camera. All I have is my Sony Cyber-shot that I bought in Singapore last year. Yet, I still don't know much on how to use it. All I know is, switching it on and off and click that record button. Now having the chance to view someone's work that really excites me, of course I subconsciously become a fan. Not by force, but by all those capturing effects of his photos.
I'd feel really glad if any of the comments I had left was replied by this photographer. It felt like having Avril Lavigne's autograph personally handed to you by the singer herself. Now you know what I mean ya. Well anyway, recently I felt really weird (can't find a better word to describe how I feel) when I found that my comments were ... deleted! I wasn't tracing for direct responses from him but I really admire his work that I'd really like to see how he'd respond to my comments. But it was sad when I found that he deleted them. Not 1, but 3 now. I mean, why??
As far as I know, the comments that I left did not carry any bad words or messages or even bad jokes. I commented based on the photos that I viewed and learnt. I don't know this photographer. I don't know his name. I don't know where he's from. All I see is his talent. Purely his talent. I can't think of any reason why he deleted my comments.
It's upsetting. I wasn't trying to bother anyone with anything. I mean, the pictures are posted on his blog. So as far as I know, it's sure meant to be viewed, and commented on. Do you feel me?
Now why did he delete my comments? *shake head*
It's unbelievable how someone could do that to a fan. He made me feel like I'm a bother or a fungi. To whoever you are, I'm NOT a stalker. I am just being honest writing those comments on your work. I am just a nobody who wish to see that one day your pieces of art hang on those walls for everyone to see, not just crammed in this blogspot web.
To whoever you are, the talented photographer, you just lost a fan today!
