Where The Earth Meets The Sea

1 Where The Earth Meets The Sea

I spend a hell of a lot of time in Second Life building elaborate sets for photo shoots, digging through my inventory for the perfect accessories to style an outfit and shooting an absolute multitude of photos with dozens of different Windlight settings, all for a single picture. I do enjoy it or I wouldn’t do it, but sometimes it is nice to just strip everything back to the basics.

A beautiful dress. A feminine hairstyle. A deserted beach with simple lighting. Five shots later and minimal post-processing I was done.

This post isn’t about the rubber meeting the road; it is about the tranquility of that place where the earth meets the sea.

Cure For A Headache

1 Shattered

Gee, and I thought I had a headache…

I paid a visit to Cammino e Vivo Capovolto by Mistero Hifeng. It is a limited-time installation at LEA29 and it is definitely worth a trip. It is one of those places that is fine to go to by yourself, to wander and discover the creations of this talented artist.

This venue is as filled with beauty as it is with despair. As I walked about, I felt a sense of reverence for the pain and loss depicted by each vignette. I won’t say I enjoyed it; rather, I felt as if I had been allowed the privilege of having a glimpse of private anguish and loss.

On a happier note, the dress I am wearing from Salt & Pepper is available for this round of Shiny Shabby. It comes with a texture-change HUD to give you a variety of looks.

A little shopping is always better than a painkiller.

In A Watercolour World

1 Aquarelle2

When I saw the new female stands from !bang for this round of The Thrift Shop, I went into girly-squeeee overload. They are just so feminine that I felt like a dainty, delicate doll.

So, what is more feminine than the soft hues of a watercolour painting? With my dress from Snowpaws, all I needed was a location. So, imagine my delight when I checked the Destination Guide and found

Aquarelle is a landscape of lightness, softness and transparency in the colors of a watercolor. It is as if a painter invited you to jump into a painting, to bring life to the scene. Visit the beauty of the place alone, with friends or a lover and explore what is visible and what is not. Enjoy the serenity!

Sometimes a girl’s plan comes together…in a watercolour world.
