#88 Mem’s Gallery

Your first 10,000 photographs are your worst. -Henri Cartier-Bresson

Every so often I look around my small gallery and wonder – why?

Why do I have a gallery? Why do my friends like me to have a gallery? Why have I chosen these, of all my photographs, to display? Are these still part of my 10,000? Why have I displayed them like this?

mems-gallery

I wonder – what do visitors see? What thoughts or feelings are raised?

Currently Mem’s Gallery is housed in a cute little cottage at the top of a hill, surrounded by flowers and trees; part of our New Zealand themed sim.

If you have a chance to pop in and look around please send me your feedback – thoughts, feelings, ideas. Constructive feedback can provide inspiration (or desperation?) to push through  to keep on changing and growing.

#61 Pretty as a Picture – My Attic @ THE DECK

Stick figures zooming around in circles on bicycles?

Pictures waiting for me to climb into the frame?

An empty bed waiting for a sleeper?

May the wings of the butterfly kiss the sun
And find your shoulder to light on,
To bring you luck, happiness and riches
Today, tomorrow and beyond.

Tears stream down your face
When you lose something you cannot replace
Tears stream down your face
And I…

Tears stream down your face
I promise you I will learn from my mistakes
Tears stream down your face
And I…

from “Fix you” by Coldplay
