#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.

#87 I need to go shopping

“I’ve purged myself of worldly goods; half my stuff is either being sold or going to charity. I need to go shopping.” – Christy Leigh Stewart

It was like a purge – back in July some stroke of LL doom swallowed one of my folders – never to be found again. Not just any folder – it was my CLOTHING folder – 50k of trash and treasure from 9 years in SL: clothes, shoes, jewelry, lingerie, hats, bags, umbrellas and watches …. the lot.

Now when I make up an outfit I need to go shopping.

My shopping trip took me to old haunts (Zaara) and to new ones [VERSOV] – to collect DEMOS!

I love this outfit – it reminds me of some looks from the recent Spring 2017 Ready to Wear Fashion shows. I love the contrasting colors, textures, styles, the meticulous design details, the glam hairdos and sheer craziness of it all.
