#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.

#85 this fairy’s gift

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

fairy-1

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.

#63 Your Performance is Almost Over

New appliers for treasured gowns worn under stage lighting to meet a photography challenge!

Your performance is almost over
When you’re through I will take you home
To a place where the water’s always fresh and cool
I will lay you down, take off your shoes

The performance is nearly over...

I was inspired by finding that pixivor Allen – of ALaFolie has released MESH body appliers for some of her most fantastic creations. I have a special place in my heart for this version of the gown she created for Miss Philippines (back in…. 2009?)  and several other treasured dresses. THANK YOU Pixi!

An old favorite heard on the radio – Performance – by Joe Cocker  – gave me the story-line to meet a photography challenge set by  a friend – I hope she likes what I’ve done.

#62 Alive in the spotlight

I find I like the spotlight for a very brief period of time… and I sort of need it. But then, the minute that it’s done, I have to sort of go hide.
