Exploring Midnight in Paris

I love exploring photographic sims. I’ve been a fan of the BKLYN sim since the first time I visited. It is the absolute perfect city sim and fortunately they have a group now that allows for rezzing. They didn’t the first few times I visited. Recently, that group has done up another sim called Midnight in Paris. I finally was able to take the time to explore yesterday and it did not disappoint. It looks the best if you use their region windlight. (I’m not on the whole EEP thing yet.) This sim is perfect for photography and/or a romantic little date. There benches all over the city to provide some romantic conversations and there’s even a small cafe right on the street. I recommend turning on sounds, because the hustle and bustle of the city really adds to the experience. You might even hear some cats fighting in the alley. I did. I won’t say much more, because I encourage you to visit and see for yourself.

It’s all about Equal10!!

It’s all about Equal10!! Well, this post at least. I’ll readily admit that I am an event junkie! I love seeing designers from all over the grid all bringing out their latest and greatest in one place. Don’t get me wrong, I love some mainstore releases, too. Let’s face it, I love shopping! The thing about events, for me, is that each event usually delivers a certain flair. Equal10 has quickly become one of my favorites, because more often than not, I can count on at least three or four of my favorite stores to be presenting. This round is most definitely one of those. I did my best to squeeze in as many of my favorites as I could straight away. I mean, look at the list of credits! I love what I’m wearing. I love the pose. I love my surroundings.
I actually really love this photo and how it turned out. *winks at her haters* Yes, I used bokeh and an overlay. I know its not perfect and I’m by far no expert photographer or editor, but if you can’t love your own work….how can you expect others to like it? Naturally, with me loving the photo so much, it will probably do poorly on Flickr as that seems to be the trend when I really like a photo. *laughs* That’s just the way the Flickr cookie seems to crumble. The real point of this photo is to show off all the insanely good creations that the designers have shared with us at reasonable prices.

It's all about Equal10!!

Snowdrops

My sister, Kess Crystal, opened her winter sim today. It might seem a tad early to some, but in plenty of places around the world…the snow has been on the ground for a while. This sim is absolutely gorgeous and I highly encourage you to check it out. There’s actually activities on the sim, as well. I’m not going to tell you too much about it, because honestly I want you to go check it out for yourself. I know I’ll be coming back to ice skate on this gorgeous ice skating area behind me!

Better Things

Welp, I made it on that dreadful website again. *shakes my head* The things they say bother me far less than the idea that someone is wasting so much of their precious time focusing on some silly form of fixated hate. Whoever is posting about me, clearly doesn’t really know me, so they can say whatever they want on that silly site. That’s why they have to post anonymously, right? It’s ok if they don’t like my blog and my photos. I’m fully aware of my limitations as an SL photographer. I’ve never claimed to be some sort of expert. I do what I like. I always have and always will, as far as photography is concerned. If others like it…YAY! If they don’t…well, I understand.
I’m not quite sure where they got the man stealing idea, but that definitely isn’t me. I have NEVER done that in Second Life. Earlier this year, I broke one of my cardinal rules, sorta twice, by dating guys that had dated friends of mine in the past. However, both of my friends were aware and gave their blessings. It didn’t work out, but no one ran away from me….though, to be fair, they probably should have. *laughs* I probably am a tad bit psycho. *evil grin* I’m okay with that. I lost my RL husband to a much younger and much prettier woman. The pain that delivered is far more than any I would ever wish on someone else. So, stealing a man isn’t my style. Besides, why would I want one that can be so easily stolen in the first place?
Alas, if this person so filled with hatred for me….if they really knew me, they probably wouldn’t waste so much of their time on me. Though, by the looks of things, they probably never will, cuz I tend to surround myself with loving individuals who support each others’ endeavors. My friends and I don’t tear each other down. Nor do we look for ways to tear others down.
Once again, I must say that I do not wish this person any ill will. In fact, I’d prefer they find some happiness in their lives and fill their hearts with love instead of whatever petty jealousy or hate that consumes them. If I somehow inadvertently hurt this person, I highly doubt that is was my intention. Perhaps they do have justified reasons to dislike me, but until they are courageous enough to step out of the cowardly anonymous shadows…I cannot honestly know. Nor can I apologize. Perhaps they are the psychotic ones and have no valid reason at all. Until they come forward, I’ll just have to do what I do best…shrug it off and keep on moving forward. I have better things to focus my attention on. ♥

She’s Singing

It’s 5am and my 74yr old mother is dancing through the house singing Beyonce’s “Single Ladies.” I don’t even think she realizes what she’s singing, but she’s doing a well enough job that I recognize the song. I just pulled up the song on YouTube and she comes running in asking how did I know she had that song stuck in her head. *cracks up* Well, Mom, you tend to think out loud…so its not that hard to know what you’re thinking. God, I love this woman!

Busy Days

The last few days have been busy busy busy, as are the first few days of every month. *laughs* This is nothing new. However, yesterday I had to leave the house and that’s always an anxiety attack. Luckily, I wasn’t in the voting line too long. My mother used to work the polls and she knew the best time for us to go. She picked the absolute best time, too. There wasn’t much of a line when we got there, but as we left there was a line going quite a ways down the sidewalk outside. It was really odd seeing so much security surrounding the premises, but I suppose it was good to err on the side of caution. I’ll admit that I was a bit nervous as I live in a very very red state and I am quite blue. And that’s the extent of what I will discuss about politics. I won’t unfriend those that disagree with me, as I feel we all have our reasons for feeling the way we do. I have family that is red and while I don’t agree with them, I can still love them….from a distance. *grins*

Mostly Anxious

Today is going to be an exceptionally busy day for me. I have to go out into the cold world. Yes, I mean, literally cold. I need to vote and run some errands. Ugh, I so hate leaving my house. Meanwhile, at home…inworld…its that time again and I need to get TLC open and ready for our dedicated shoppers. I’m excited about this round and hope to do some pictures of some of the amazing designs our creators have exhibited this round. I don’t have a ton to talk about right now. I’m most feeling really anxious about going out today and facing the voting lines.

Now you see

I love doing sexy pictures from time to time, but this is when I struggle the most with what to write. I’m not sure why as what I write about rarely matches the photo anyway. Yet, it still feels weird to tell you something funny that my mom said while showing a picture with my ass pushed up like a cat in heat. While this photo is really supposed to be sexy, I can’t help but giggle a bit about what a photographer might be saying to a model in real life to get her to pose like this. Would he say something like, “Be a horny pussy…cat!” I’ve seen photographers cup the chins of models to tilt their heads a certain way. Would he grab her by the pussy and tell her to lift higher? *cracks up laughing* Yes! I finally found a way to work those words into a blog post. And before you lash out, I’m not suggesting that it’s okay to do that! Calm your tits! Y’all should know by now that my sense of humor is a bit crass at times. So much for being classy….*giggles* Alright, alright….now you see how freaking awkward I am…and quite possibly why I am perpetually single.
