Self Reflection

Hey guys! After the sale at Merch where I was able to get the fur coat that I have been wanting for a while, I got some inspiration to take some photos. I have a friend who takes exceptional photos, and he has a certain style in taking his photos. So today, I tried to find my own, intimate style in taking photos. But first I’ll show you the other stuff that I got from Merch.

Waiting for Someone

I decided to go out for dinner tonight. There was a trendy steakhouse across town, so I decided to check it out. Some people may think that it’s weird to have dinner alone, but I didn’t mind. Besides, I tend to get perks like getting drinks for free. One time I had an entire meal comped by a stranger who left his phone number with the waiter. With my busy schedule, it’s hard to meet up with friends on a regular basis. Come to think of it, they are busy too…

Spring @ Arden Pointe

Hey guys! If you haven’t noticed, we are now in the Spring season (at least the Northern Hemisphere is!). I am looking forward to longer periods of sunlight myself. One thing that I plan to do this spring is to visit more scenic sims and take pictures. Lately I have relied a lot on backdrops. I wanted to gain more experience in taking photos in more of a studio setting and learn how to play with lighting. I think I have done well with that. So, it’s back to taking pictures on location ^^

Major Living

Hey guys! How have you been? Even though I know February is a short month, it just FEELS shorter, you know? Last time I remember thinking about the month was right before Valentine’s Day. And now here it is, almost at the end of the month. This month I have started to slowly get back engaged into Second Life. Thank you to everyone who was concerned about me ^^ It’s funny because when we were talking, they would mention that they, too were taking a break or RL was keeping them from being in SL as much. But I guess because they are used to seeing me on, it was different when we kept missing each other.

I have noticed from social media (the bit that I have been on this month) is that there are a number of people who are having a rough time (or should I say continue to have because I noticed this in January, too). It’s sad because we can’t do much to help them except to support them emotionally. And let’s not give them a hard time because they can’t maintain their regular routine.

Recent Changes In Flickr and What It Means For Second Life Bloggers

Since the announcement was made on November 1st that there would be changes to Flickr’s Pro and Free account offerings ( Let’s be candid.), feelings of disbelief, anger, and concern have been expressed in the Second Life community. There is no secret that Flickr has been integral to promoting SL fashion & photography. I have even written a couple of blog posts in the past about the influence of Flickr on Second Life blogging, and my own struggle to get the coveted 99+ faves . After reading all of the chatter for the past several days, I decided to make my own comments on the situation.
