Thank you so much for
stopping by my Profile Page.
My name really is:
of Tea Photography©
If you stay a bit, you will find my Galleries reflect various works of art-
each with a purpose, and for me, special meaning.
You are welcomed here, and I truly DO appreciate your visit.
IF you have a dA account-
The best way to tell, ask, or SHOW me something
Please, NOTE ME
to be sure that I DO get your message.
I do NOT want to miss anything of VALUE from YOU!
[And sadly, I do miss a lot in comments, ]
But I WILL eventually SEE your NOTES!
Thank You to ALL Who have Ever Gifted Me Art, Since I've been on dA
The fact that you would use your talents to dedicate something to me, is a humbling honour, that I don't take lightly and that I truly treasure.
I also want you to know, that it is your supportive friendships, which are are at the HEART of what are the TRUE GIFTS.
The TREASURE CHEST is VERY SPECIAL
I've been collecting works in The Treasure Chest for about Five Years. I used to choose a few of them each month to highlight here out front, but I am no longer able to keep up with that, so I will just highlight the whole folder!
The Treasure Chest is an EXTRA special collection of works which I have felt over the time I've been here, to...
Have some kind of very special meaning for me, personally.
Captivate me in a way that is stronger or more unique than usual.
Convey an important, meaningful message for society- such as in regard to issues we face and try to bring awareness to.
Perhaps be worthy of a DD, which in a few cases, I've likely suggested.
In a few cases, be from some combination above.
The Shelter Project
is VERY near and dear to my heart.
And it all started at the end of Summer 2010.

Purchases on behalf of The Shelter Project
have donations going to animals who:
Are in need of rescuing.
Have been rescued and are in need of care.
Need to be Spayed or Neutered.
Need food, medicine, blankets, toys, a sanitary environment.
Currently Live at
The South Coast Humane Society
while waiting for their FURR-EVER home,
... and is where I am currently volunteering since moving to here in 2011, (after the project was one year old).
BESIDES, The Shelter Project
I am also the photographer for The South Coast Humane Society
and I photograph the cats and dogs, for the Adopt-A-Pet sections of the newspapers, and the photos also get uploaded to our Petfinder.com and FB pages, for internet coverage!

Also, visit: teaphotography.com
There is rarely time to keep it maintained...
But you should see some PRICES there.
I do not and can NOT profit from anything that is purchased for The Shelter Project, because anything left after the 25% donation, MUST go back to ALL the many materials it takes to create these products.
And I can't overcharge, or no one would do it.

Simply ask in a dA NOTE or in email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
And YES, I have PAYPAL exactly for this project!
I would like to thank EACH person who HAS 'd ANY works directly about The Shelter Project or even my shelter/rescue animals in general.
You have helped tremendously by the spreading of the awareness of an immensely good cause that helps animals!
THANK YOU SO MUCH to THE SHELTER PROJECT AFFILIATES and SUPER AFFILIATES of dA
The following dA Groups and individuals with dA Accounts have been especially instrumental in a variety of ways- with their extra special support of The Shelter Project. Several of them have even made purchases- a few more than once!

The animals and I are forever grateful.
Purchasing jewelry, most of which is inspired by NATURE, and is hand-crafted by TEA of Tea Photography, creates donations for Animals in Need, via
The Shelter Project.
Thank you to everyone who has already helped in this way, and multiple times, who plans to help again, to those who plan to make a purchase, and thank you to those who have helped in other ways, by purchasing PRINTS and GREETING CARDS!
You Save Animals.
All of these continue to be ongoing opportunities to help our animal friends and companions, through
The Shelter Project.
dA's BIG Heroes of
THE SHELTER PROJECT
"The SUPER AFFILIATES"
are The Direct Purchasers/Contributors from dA
of this Project
Feel Free to Visit this Collection of Their Wonderful Work HERE: teaphotography.deviantart.com/…
Without them, this Project would not be possible, let alone the success that it's been, and that we hope it continues to be.
They make up a good portion of the TOTAL donation business for The Shelter Project, and I can never be more thankful for what they've done and continue to do!
The first HALF listed, have made multiple purchases- therefore contributions, to the animals in need through The Shelter Project.
was a partner in a SPECIAL PROJECT, called:
"The Shelter ART Project":
in which she sponsored the Artwork that I donated and presented to
the *FIRST* shelter that was benefiting from
The Shelter Project, before I had moved.
There was even some left over for a direct donation, and due to all of this, it is why she is included here!
Each of the above friends/supporters are truly fabulous individuals, who are extremely compassionate people, that they would participate in "The Shelter Project", in this way which directly benefits animals, while receiving any of my custom made Artwork!
I am forever grateful from the bottom of my heart!
.... to think of the ANIMALS they have helped!

T E A - one of my favourite dA girls :iconhellokittyplz: comes from Oregon, USA... "I have made art of some sort for as long as I can remember. First, I was writing children stories as a kid, starting about kindergarten. I had huge notebooks where I wrote the short stories and did the illustrations myself. I remember wanting to do them, because I liked being able to control how the stories went along and turned out, myself. About 3rd grade, I carried around sketch pads, and I mostly drew trees, with charcoal pencils. I also had my first "diaries" at this time, and I began to write poems then, too. In 5th grade, I got my first film camera. I remember it was a kodak. These are my earliest memories in art. I think overall, my reason, was that it was
Orbital decayAfter twenty three midnights,
Two kisses under thistle,
Rebirth made me a deal.
'Come back', he whispered,
That voice of silk and sea salt,
Fiddling with my cigarette in one hand and desires in the other, I almost did.
Lighting the tip with every wish to go back,
The ash flaring up like fireworks as midnight locked into place,
And read his mind.
He was still, solid,
Followed the same route all his life
Despite colliding with adventure after adventure.
I sat on a park bench and collected the stamps of my thoughts.
I wanted to post every single one to a destination I could not follow,
Walk the opposite way,
Travel faster than the speed of pretending, against the orbit,
Who’d have thought it?
The magnitude made my heart hunger, pull itself inward until it thundered,
I was going tear myself asunder
Become all the reset choices.
I was ready to let the wind gather my collection,
All but one...
White WomanShe drifts across moors,
Veils of weeping tissues
Locked around her shoulders.
Her heart is made of pieces,
In sugar-like skin.
Rainfall plays with her hair,
Until her traitor found her,
Far away and right in front of you.
I wouldn’t call her a Goddess.
From a hell on Earth eternity which made her.
You’d see her reflection
Hoping to leave a while
While you walk down the aisle.
Instead she dreams
History won’t repeat.
History won’t repeat.

scared of plane tickets,
Because in them
Is the idea something could be waiting within
Any kind of change this irregular default.
Sometimes we're unmade
When we handle those kinds of stars.
I may go far.
I hope I can stay
The same way sentential structures keep their words together like prose, like
Its sweet taste of sugar

Earth Day is a Global Holiday which began in 1970!
This year in 2014, this international celebration which aims to promote awareness, education, and action in order to help preserve and protect our Nature on Earth, falls on Tuesday, April 22nd!
Our Group has been expanding for over a year now, via several types of efforts, in an attempt to reflect that not only do we love and enjoy the beauty of Nature, but that we also care about protecting and preserving it, and would like to seek ways to join with others to do so, and learn about and create better ideas for this!
There are so many environmental issues, which do, in fact, adversely affect Earth, our common home.

I spent a lot of time waiting for better timing
For either cloudless skies or crystal rain
Looking for signs, signals and indications
My eyes got itchy and I swore I wouldn't love again
Shooting stars aimed too well and in a pompous crash
They mercilessly cracked the telescope
Moonstones mingled with broken lenses of a dream
I shook my head and left with no more hope
I burned the bridges and then made my way through smoke
To get a one-way-ticket for just me
The fool I was, the proud and stubborn man
Didn't count on that there'd also be - She
A mirage, daydream they might say... I thought that too
But only 'till She smiled and offered me a seat
And from that moment on She's become You
Undoubtedly we were destined to meet
I kept my vow, I haven't loved "again"
For You taught me the meaning of that word
Now I stand in front of You, dearest friend
Your trust with my devotion to reward
I'm aware of that time runs much too fast
The more during the happiest of our days
But love like ours
Half-Blood Kingdom CSChapter Twenty Nine – Part Seven
This is gonna be easy! As Lowell reaches the field he chuckles to himself and lights up his eyes underneath the blindfold he now wears. Instantly his senses are magnified, and although he can't visually see where his opponent is standing, he has a very good indication of where Dave is, almost like viewing him through thermal imaging binoculars. Lowell digs his feet into the dirt and snow below and takes a long whiff of the cold December air, supplying himself with even more information on his opponent, including the state of his emotions and the extent of his Lightning abilities. Dave still hasn't made a move though, not even an inch. C'mon, this is supposed to look real, damn it! Come at me already! Right on cue, Dave collects a surge of Lightning at his chest. Lowell can tell from its crackling that an attack is imminent, but there is no telling where it will come from just yet. Now we're talkin'! I'm gonna make this look so goo
Every Journey Has An EndingIf I would have nine lives,
maybe in one of them,
I would smile to a star called Desire,
which appears from time to time on the sky of an unknown planet,
to make life brighter.
With eight lives, I would think I'm so rich,
that I would be able to find that wonderful legendary golden dragon
and with generosity,
maybe he would protect me from emptiness.
With seven lives,
I would be so proud by my beauty,
that maybe I would forget
that you can not live so long without having a doubt.
With six lives,
I would turn the ashes of the Universe in diamonds
and maybe all known or unknown eyes,
would see the light.
With five lives,
maybe I would discover from where springing the rainbow
and I would catch roots
in an certain Tomorrow.
With four lives,
maybe I would be very selfish
and I would believe that my heart can sing
and that song could stop time passing.
With three lives,
I would dream that my insanity was cured
I would be able to learn to love.
With two lives,
I would start to app
