Hi to all my deviant friends!!!... First of all, I want to apologize to everybody for dropping out of the face of the earth without any notice.... I know it's been months since I've been here, and I just want to say I really missed everybody. 

Of course some explanation is due.... The thing is my wife got really sick last november with some rare blood disease which apparently nobody knows where it comes from or how to cure it for good... I took her to the hospital nearly dying, and she stayed in the IC unit for a couple of months, with tons of really heavy medications, blood transfusions and what not. I think I could say that up to now, those have been the worst couple of months of my life. 
Little by little she got better and more stable, but at first she couldn't even brush her teeth because of a high risk of hemorrage just from a simple gum bleed, needless to say, all the attention and care required had no room for error. 
Finally she got out of the hospital, and by early January she still had to go to the hospital regularly to get her medicine. (Docs were giving her some quimo treatment which as a side effect helps cure this rare disease) Once she got out, I just really wanted to spend time with her and my daughter. The whole thing gave me a new perspective on family, love, and how fast everything can be taken from you.
The next few months were full of blood tests, steroid treatments and its side effects, and being really on the look out for any sign of the disease coming back. Docs say that the first year is the most risky for a relapse, but that from now on we're going to have to be very careful with any symptom, as small as it may be. Well, were almost half way of 2015 and everything seems to be in order THANK GOD!!...but there's always the constant thought in the back of my head that everything could happen again without previous notice.

So... basically that's it... that's the reason I went AWOL on all of you guys for the past few months.... I really needed to take care of my wife and daughter and fight through this bitch without giving her a chance to win!!... but now... with a huge smile on my face... I can let you all know that I'm Back!!!!....

On a much happier note.... I have tons of messages, notes, birthday msgs and favorites to thank for, answer, etc. I love you all people!!!!... I was more than happy to see all of your posts, and I promise I will answer every last one of them if it takes me the rest of the year!!!... 

I'm really glad to be back and I can't wait to check out what's been going on with all your lives!!.. 
Talk soon!!.. 

Uriel.

People could say I'm into a little bit of everything. I've been a musician all my life. As to when I turned professional that's still up for discussion. Aside from having played in several different bands, I own a record label and recording studio as a result of trying to find new and different projects to develop in my country.

One of my biggest passions is motorcycle riding. I'm by no means a pro, but I do have the ability to crash like one, and riding a bike has led me to see and photograph some amazing places.

I've been developing a wine production business in which people can come into the store, choose from a variety of wines and design their own labels, they can even make their own wine.

Aside from that, I like playing paintball with my friends on weekends, which basically translates into a bunch of thirty - something yo drinking beer and counting bruises in between games.

As to photography, I just want to share my view of the world. I don't know much about it. I just take my camera and shoot whatever I feel like, same with photo editing and re-touching. For me, the best picture is not necessarily technically perfect, but instead it has that certain something that sticks with you. Hopefully I'll receive some feedback from you guys (good and bad, it's all welcome) to get better.

Thanks for reading,
Enjoy!
