This is it!Today was the last day of my term as a Chat & Forums and Architecture Photography Community Volunteer. It's crazy how fast time flew by! Yet I got so used to be part of the team, it feels very strange to leave it. I've worked with a bunch of warm and supporting people! I'm deeply grateful to Moonbeam13 to have given me this opportunity to get involved with the community and try to improve the Architecture Photography gallery, as well as feature some stunning work, and keep the chats & forums safer and cleaner. It has been a great pleasure!Now that this chapter of my dA history has ended, I hope new ones will start, either through fun projects, new friends, or general deviantFUN!To new beginnings!
