Ballsy

1 Ballsy sm

I have taken a lot of photos in the last week. I mean, a lot, for me. Normally because work has me exhausted by the time I get home Monday through Friday, I rarely get into Second Life, so my weekends are catch up time for my blog. However, with two big events running right now – Vintage Fair and The Liaison Collaborative – I’ve been excited to shoot all of the beautiful items and have been pushing myself to go beyond the usual two or three photos I normally produce.

That being said, I still get a bit overwhelmed and sometimes resort to using my favourite location, rather than creating my own set. So yesterday, after having done three shoots already, I wandered over to Furillen to gather a bit of inspiration to soldier on.

Now, I hadn’t planned on using the billiard table when I arrived (in fact, someone else was there and leaning against it when I wandered into the room), but when he left, I scurried back down to claim my spot. I have done some serious (temporary) derendering in the room to create a more open space, but rest assured, all of Serene’s painstaking decorating will be there when I return.

This outfit just screams femininity. But one of the greatest attributes of any woman is to be able to combine her womanliness with a bit of the vamp. What says that more than an alluring pose on a billiard table? 😉

After the cut, I’ll give you a close-up of the hair, fascinator, necklace and bodice of the dress. They are definitely worth the extra look.

A Winter’s Day

1 A Winter's Day sm

I feel like I’ve been on the top of Santa’s Nice List the last couple of weeks. In addition to Christmas on 34th Street opening last week, the December version of Wayward Market has just opened the gates for even more holiday shopping.

While I don’t usually take wide angle photos, when I saw the Little Winter Cottage from 22769 ~ [bauwerk], I knew I wouldn’t be able to get away with just using a room of the house in my photos. It is just so perfect! It comes in both a snow-capped an no snow version, so you can use it all year round.

I started adding landscaping and external decorations, but realised the atrium couldn’t be photographed bare. So I had to fill it up, too. Which led to another set of photos, showing the interior. I was going to blog both outside and inside today, but I decided I will dedicate a separate post to the indoors. Stay tuned for that one in the next day or two.

I tried to create a picture postcard type scene; I hope I was able to convey the spirit of the season with this shot. I wish you all the blessings of this special time of year, the joy that can be found on a winter’s day.
