…of friends, lovers, hearts.
Second Life is sometimes called a game and sometimes called a social networking platform. Whatever you decide to call it, there will always be people who meet and becomes friends or lovers. It’s the nature of people to seek others out for a connection of the heart, whether platonic or romantic.
I love taking photographs of couples. To be able to capture the bond between two people and express the emotions of the moment is one of the most rewarding parts of photography for me. Knowing that whenever they look at that image it will stir a memory of that place and time is what makes it worthwhile for me.
Formal shoots give me the opportunity to select a pose and have more control over the setting. And I’ve loved some of the photos I’ve done of both lovers and friends.
But some of my favourite photos are those that have been taken “in the moment”…those pictures that are a snapshot of who those people are together, reflecting why they chose to be lovers or friends. Sometimes romantic, sometimes whimsical, sometimes silly. They’re all a part of why people choose to spend their time together and I love photographing those moments.
I’m discovering this blog is about much more to me than photography. It’s about my adventures in Second Life and the amazing people who have touched my life there. The stories that have been told, the friendships forged, the affairs of the heart. Thank you for sharing this journey with me.
“If there ever comes a day when we can’t be together, keep me in your heart. I’ll stay there forever.”
