I Am What I Am

I Am What I Am

I spend quite a bit of time scrolling through flickr and Facebook and I always stop to take an extra look at photos that catch my eye. As I take a few minutes to look I can’t stop myself from wishing I could take pictures that good. I see everyone else’s creativity, the lighting, the setting and the pose all together creating a thing of beauty, that I never seem to attain. I’m not saying this for someone to comment that I’m really good or anything like that. I’m just stating how I think about my own work when I compare it with other’s. And, I’m the first person to say, ‘never compare your own work with anyone else’s’, but I don’t practice that, it seems. πŸ˜€ I admire so many Second Life photographer’s work and strive to one day be as good, but I have to admit to myself, that I am what I am! I like bold colours, vast horizons, and playing with shadows. I like sunsets, storm clouds and a dusty look, and I’ll take as many pics as I need to to get the look I think is right. And sometimes I give up, knowing that it isn’t going to get any better and I need to save my sanity and not get obsessed with it. Am I completely pleased with every picture I post on flickr and my blog? Not even close…..I have my faves and some that I think a fairly good, and others I just accept as the best I could do on that given day! I’m not perfect, I’m completely self taught, and have no idea how to use Gimp or Photoshop, but I try to show a little piece of myself in each photo and convey my feelings. I put my heart into it and hope some of it translates into my pictures, that’s all I want to accomplish here, I don’t want to have the most faves, views, or comments, I just enjoy doing it. But, I’m very thankful for every fave, follow, and comment I receive, I appreciate each and every one of you for taking the time to have a look!

The September round of Hair-O-Logy is open and [KoKoLoReS] has released two exclusives for it! I’m wearing ‘Sami’ and I love how it’s up off my face and under control. ‘Sami’ needs to be worn with an updo hair base, which is included in system tattoo layer or tintable Omega HUD. I’m not very good at tinting anything, I’ll admit that….but I think I did fairly well this time around. The hair is unrigged mesh for easy fitting and has nice detail with some nice wisps flowing back from the forehead. The [KoKoLoReS] colour palette is extensive with four colour packs each holding 25 colours, the clip is also colour change! Hair-O-Logy runs until September 30.

I’ve thrown on the ‘Amala Bikini’ from Maitreya, for a quick dip!

My look all starts with the ‘Luna’ skin in ‘miel’ tone from Avada on the ‘Lilo’ bento mesh head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

I found the ‘Cleanse’ pose on Market Place from {Lyrium}.

    1. We’ve said that to each other!!…….’our pictures aren’t better or worse than each other…only different!’. That’s what makes photography so interesting…it captures exactly how a person sees something! And it’s never the same as anyone else’s! πŸ™‚
