“I think music in itself is healing. It’s an explosive expression of humanity. It’s something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we’re from, everyone loves music.”
I think music is a great way to express yourself, when words don’t come easily. Sometimes artists find words that either touch you or you can relate to. Taking pictures in second life has a connection between art and humanity–just like music. It captures feelings. For me, personally, I’ve been seriously involved with music for literally half of my life. So self expression is like breathing for me. Many of my friends in real life are also contributors to the music community by being teachers, choir directors, and musicians. This is also the reason why second life photography has been a major part of my journey. I find great joy through self expression.
I could not take these pictures without the kind people inworld who discuss techniques and tools that help the process. I never claim to know everything to those who ask. I always say that I am a constant learner, because I am. Residents always surprise and delight me with their talents. I’m totally gushing in this post because I’ve had a few friends inworld lately give me some tips, which I am entirely grateful for those in my life, who have helped me to create this blog. Without you, I would cease to exist.
Normally, I wouldn’t share something personal in my blog. BUT, I’m going to have to share a few things in the next few months. So I wanted to start off with something good. Sometimes people have to share things, even when they really don’t want to. In those cases, I find that disclosing something fun is best, instead of diving into the gritty details. Music and art have always been apart of my life. People in my real life are freelance artists, and musicians. It has enriched my life–just as photography has in second life.
Speaking of pictures, in my second pic, I thought it would be funny to add a little bit to that sentence and link a video that had Lie as the title. This photo shoot was a lot of fun. This isn’t my normal look. I like changing it up from time to time. The play on words, the colors, and silliness, I couldn’t stop smiling these pictures. Pink is my favorite color and always makes me fee happy (if you couldn’t tell by how much pink I wear) :).
This wonderful outfit, poses, and back drop all come from different companies and different events. I want to talk about Limit 8. It’s an event that hosts 50 designers. They feature limited items. So once they are gone, they are gone. It opens up on the 18th of every month at 5pm. You have to hurry, when the open though, as one can imagine things go quite quickly. My backdrop is from Ninety and called Need You Backdrop. It’s no longer available. However, backdrops such as this one above can be found at Limited 8. Next, we have my rare jacket/shirt combo, shorts in the bottom photo came from the epiphany. It’s from foxes and called Spooky, which again can be found at the epiphany. My pose is from Body language and called SLC Bento SS pose, which can be found at N21. My rings and nails can also be found at N21. They’re from yummy and called Divinity Nail and Ring set. As you can see, the grid is full of wonderful events.
Please grab a friend and head out shopping. You won’t be disappointed. So many great events on the map!! For further details on my styling, please check out my credits below.
As always, be kind to one another.
