#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?


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.

#85 this fairy’s gift

All the ancient classic fairy tales have always been scary and dark                                        – Helena Bonham Carter


The third fairy drifts into the castle, trailing butterflies and the scent of magical gardens. Memory bears her gift to the tiny princess; one perfect golden peony, symbolizing beauty and honor.

#10 FashionArt – a dream

When people plan events in Second Life it helps to have a dream – and when I wandered about the shops, reading the quotes on the walls and considering the ‘exclusive’ items that our amazing creators made for the event, I could see that creative dreaming is thriving!


I fell in love with this ‘dress’ (sYs) MURAGAMI dress – Kawaii Yellow – by Syane Ciss – it reminds me of the work of Erte – shape, textures, engineering, glamour! The dress comes with an underlayer of net and a necktie matching the centre panel of the dress – but I have teamed it instead with treasures from my inventory – a shirt layer from LBD – by LeeZu Baxter; hair by Tabata Jewell; headwear by Chirzaka Vlodovic of LODE and more. A couple of new finds are the amazing nails for Slink hands from -(ZOZ)- and the 22769 necklace from L’accessoires.

I set it all up- took this snap – then FORGOT TO POST IT!

NOTE TO SELF – Post about events before they are finished!
