Weekly Photo Challenge: Color – Once In His Life…

Once in his life, every man is entitled to fall in love with a gorgeous redhead – Lucille Ball

I love Lucille Ball and I love this quote. In real life, I’m a brunette, but as the saying goes, “The sun on a brunette’s hair looks red. The sun on a redhead’s hair looks like Heaven on Earth.” I’ve always loved the red glints the sun gives my hair. And I’m a bit fiery, like redheads are purported to be. So in Second Life, I’m a redhead…most of the time 😉

This week’s photo challenge is color. The instructions are:

You can post a single photograph featuring your favorite color or many colors, or take one of your images and experiment with color effects in a photo app or online photo editor (which we introduced in some of last month’s posts). For those of you up for a multi-photo challenge, play around with this theme in a gallery. A few ideas:

A gallery of contrasting colors
A gallery of objects focused on one color
A macro photography collection of flowers
A set of bold street art from your travels

I chose to highlight my red hair. I took these photographs at a sim called Vintage Vinyl Records & Cafe, another beautiful location I found through the Second Life Destination Guide. This was the first time I had ventured away from the studio with my LUMIPro Hud. I loved being able to adjust my lighting and eye position on the fly – although I’m sure I got some funny looks from the other people exploring the sim when I rezzed my three lighting balls 😀 But I didn’t really care…I was just thrilled by the possibilities it gave me.

Each of these photos was processed using the technique called Lomo. It truly makes my red hair my shining glory.

Now I’m off to find some sunshine to create a bit of heaven on earth 😉

      I love yellow, too…but I’m just not blonde material!

        Due to me being a red head, I am partial to the color.
