#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.

#70 POE 8 – New Year Blessings

Last year’s words belong to last year’s language

And next year’s words await another voice,

And to make an end is to make a beginning.

This is the last week that the Peace On Earth 8 gifts will be available for free – the hunt ends on the 9th January!

For the New Year ball I attended I chose this POE 8 gift – a delicate ice blue gown Silent, by Kyria Lowenstark of .::KL Couture::.    This gown and many of Kyria’s newer outfits are  compatible with SL Classic and Mesh avatars, with appliers included for Maitreya, Belleza, Omega, EVE, Lolas Tango – and there are resizers included too.  Read the vendors and try demos so that you know exactly what you are getting.  While I was looking around I bought another gown … shhh!

My Beloved Jewelry Nola necklace and earring set with texture change gems and resizers is the POE 8 gift from Kimbra McMillan. Kimbra’s store is packed with her signature delicate jewelry for all occasions. Many items have metal and gem change options making them adaptable and very good value.

#25 the test

The test of clothing in Second Life is “the dancing”.

Ok – MY test for clothing in SL is the dancing- is that better? Perhaps too this is not a fair test because we sometimes subject our avies to dancing that is generally not possible for most humans.

Having said that – this Decibel corset & pants outfit by Rebel Hope (from FaMESHed) passes the test with flying colors. Decibel is easy to wear and the sizing is perfect. Both parts come with Huds – to change the studs and zipper color.  I slipped on one of my all time favorite pairs of slink add-on pumps – I love the heel detail – by Pill Canto of Miamai.

My new skin is CINNIA  in Nordic tone, by Steffi Villota with added freckles. I am wearing it with Truth Hawkes’ Vixen hair from ~Uber~ with color from the variety pack.
