Je T’aime Till My Dying Day‘ ~Enigma~

I’m tempted to give a short list of credits for this picture and song, thinking that it says it all with nothing more needed. But then…….I was thinking about Second Life poses and how important they are and decided to talk a bit about that. First off though….one thing about an AO, they can be used as a pose and if you wait for that fraction of a second where the body is completely aligned perfectly, it can have stunning results. I rarely do this, mainly because I don’t have the timing…..or the patience for the perfect opportunity to come around again. It’s why I rarely photograph others, I need the stars to align correctly in the entire universe to get a shot I can live with. I’ve been using the same AO for a lot of years, I have tons of new bento ones, but none seem like ‘Liz’ like the one I always use…..btw….has anyone ever tried copying their AO in real life? If not……then don’t….it’s not good! 😀 Anyway, poses……….they’ve always been my Second Life fascination…even before I had a need for them. I love to watch Liz pose in all kinds of ways, and I’m super lucky that Vrir’s happy to pose with me for all the time I need to get a shot. I don’t consider myself a ‘photographer’ per se…….I just say I dabble…..but for me the pose is one of the top 3 things that makes a good photograph. Oh…believe me…..I don’t consider mine all good….but I always try. Anyway……the pose, the angle, and the lighting…….those are the big 3 things to work on, for me……..and if all 3 of those things come together in perfect symmetry…..then there’s a good chance for a great shot. Of course……I have a lot of luck with very little planning, mostly…….I cross my fingers……keep doing things until it feels right…. and then edit the crap out of it! That sometimes works too! 😀

So this shot is all about the pose…….it’s couples bento pose C.10(Ultra RARE), from IntoXx. I think the emotions it conveys will depend on the couple in the pose. Vrir and I talked about what we felt the mood is and we had differing views…..neither wrong or right….just different….so I think who you are as a couple is what you’ll see and feel in this one. The gacha set consists of 5 commons, 2 RARE and 1 Ultra RARE….male, female and couples included. IntoXx now has a store at the Voodoo in My Blood sim, too!

My all time favourite tram hair is ‘G1204’.

The question mark tattoos are ‘Enigma’ from Queen oF Ink.

As always, I’m wearing the ‘Maddie’ skin in ‘honey’ tone from The Skinnery on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

Just Breathe

Just Breathe

Yes, I understand that every life must end, uh-huh
As we sit alone, I know someday we must go, uh-huh
Oh I’m a lucky man, to count on both hands the ones I love
Some folks just have one, yeah, others, they’ve got none

Stay with me…
Let’s just breathe…

Practiced are my sins, never gonna let me win, uh-huh
Under everything, just another human being, uh-huh
I don’t wanna hurt, there’s so much in this world to make me bleed

Stay with me
You’re all I see…

Did I say that I need you?
Did I say that I want you?
Oh, if I didn’t I’m a fool you see
No one knows this more than me

As I come clean…
I wonder everyday, as I look upon your face, uh-huh
Everything you gave
And nothing you would take, oh no

Nothing you would take
Everything you gave…

Did I say that I need you?
Oh, did I say that I want you?
Oh, if I didn’t I’m a fool you see
No one knows this more than me
And I come clean, ah…

Nothing you would take
Everything you gave
Hold me ’til I die
Meet you on the other side…

Just Breathe‘ ~Eddie Vedder~

I’ve been given a golden opportunity to use a much loved song by Eddie Vedder and I’m not going to miss the chance, even though I know I’ve used it before. I’ll never tire of this song, and as I sit here writing I’m listening to it again, even though I’ve heard it more times than I can count. Heck, I sing along, not well……but I’m sure EV doesn’t mind. You might notice that I’m wearing the ‘Just Breathe Back Tattoo’ from Wild Roots here and it has everything I love in a tattoo, it’s not too busy, it’s in a great place for showing it off, and it says something….and in a font I can read! I like tattoos that have a message, I’m not into saying I’m gangsta….mainly because I’m not and I’m not sure I ever could be, but something positive and kind is always good. If it has some sort of flora or fauna is also good, and this has a rose, which I like. Although a rose isn’t one of my favourite flowers…..I’m more of a daisy kind of woman. 🙂 The tattoo comes with 3 colours for the rose, black(seen here) red, and pink, and all are very pretty. It’s compatible with all the major mesh bodies plus anything Omega driven and there’s a tattoo layer for the classic avatars still out there. It’s available now at The Darkness Event which runs until September 30.

The panties are from the ‘Date Night’ lingerie set from Blueberry and they’re so pretty.

And here’s another one of my favourite hair from tram, the ‘H0527’.

I’m wearing the ‘Maddie’ skin in ‘honey’ tone from The Skinnery on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body with Maitreya.

This is the ‘Heartbeat’ couples pose from Valor Poses and it’s a group gift right now. The group is 250L$ to join, but right now there’s this one and a set of poses for women available to group members and there’s regular group gifts released. The sim is under construction right now, so be careful where you step. 🙂

And thank you Vrir, just breathe. ♥

Stay

Stay

All along it was a fever
A cold sweat hot-headed believer
I threw my hands in the air, said show me something
He said, if you dare come a little closer

Round and around and around and around we go
Ohhh now tell me now tell me now tell me now you know

Not really sure how to feel about it
Something in the way you move
Makes me feel like I can’t live without you
It takes me all the way
I want you to stay

It’s not much of a life you’re living
It’s not just something you take, it’s given
Round and around and around and around we go
Ohhh now tell me now tell me now tell me now you know

Not really sure how to feel about it
Something in the way you move
Makes me feel like I can’t live without you
It takes me all the way
I want you to stay

Ohhh the reason I hold on
Ohhh cause I need this hole gone
Funny you’re the broken one but I’m the only one who needed saving
Cause when you never see the lights it’s hard to know which one of us is caving

Not really sure how to feel about it
Something in the way you move
Makes me feel like I can’t live without you
It takes me all the way
I want you to stay, stay
I want you to stay, ohhh

Stay‘ ~Thirty Seconds to Mars~

Thanks to RH from RH’s World of Random FLICKRness for setting up this pose for this collaboration. I didn’t try his patience as much this time as the last time we got together, so I think he has some hope that he won’t spend hours waiting for me to get the shot I want. It’s too bad I couldn’t give him my inventory, he could sort it for me while he waits! 😀 Thanks RH, always a pleasure. 🙂

This is the C.4 couples pose from IntoXx. It took a bit of adjusting but we managed to get it right and are looking so good together. By the way, while at the IntoXx main store click on the two gifts that are out, no group is needed and they’re free for the taking.

I’m wearing the ‘G1113’ hair from tram.

Just a thought here….does anyone think the lighting behind us looks like an MRI image of a brain! 😀
