52 weeks of colour challenge, week 8 – green

I landmarked the location of this dress in the first week of the challenge as I knew nothing else would do for green in Luna Jubilee’s 52 weeks of colour challenge. I spent a goddamn fortune though on suitable shoes until a simple and pretty (and cheap) pair of flats took my eye.

I thought I’d have to wait until St Patrick’s Day in March for green to be announced, but I got my wish to wear this clovery dress sooner rather than later.

Dotty about birds

I wish there was a job in Second Life for a wildlife photographer. I think I’ve found my little niche, trying to stalk unsuspecting furred and feathered objects in sims where the luxury of rezzing a pose stand has been disabled.

I like my avatar’s face in the second picture; it’s exactly how I look when I’ve just been caught doing something naughty.

52 weeks of colour challenge, week 7 – cerise

Yes, cerise. I remembered this dress in a flash of inspiration. Tried it on. Decided it wasn’t cerise enough. Shopped for an eternity. Found nothing. Decided to banish to hell everything I ever see in cerise. Walked away from the keyboard. Returned to the original dress. The end.

It really is fun, though. Details of Luna Jubilee’s year-long challenge are here.

The Raven

I’m probably the last person on the grid to learn about the Artbox Anthology project to represent works of literature in Second Life. Of the four current exhibitions including a wistfully moody Les Miserables, I shot some snaps in the space devoted to Edgar Allan Poe’s poem, The Raven.

52 weeks of colour challenge, week 6 – yellow

I’m not sure if Luna Jubilee has a secret (or public) obsession with yellow, or it’s pure coincidence, but in six weeks of her challenge the colours have included goldenrod, sepia and now pure yellow. (I’m watching out for orange, Luna, as that’s mainly yellow!)

As part of a course once, our class did a day of colour matching with a consultant to learn about our skin tones and colours that suited us. I was the only student with whatever my skin tone is, and was selected to sit out front while being draped with yellow fabrics to demonstrate how one colour can make one person appear deathly ill yet flatter another’s complexion. I was the former. I love yellow in Second Life though.

Blue and green

Many moons ago, when I was young, a girlfriend used to say, “Blue and green should never been seen, except on a fairy queen.” It took me years to realise that the saying really went, “Blue and green should never be seen, except with a colour in between.”

Or, as my new interpretation goes, ” … except with a bunny in between.” I’m doing that thing again when I wear a neutral outfit and then bust out with every colour I can cram in the screen. And throwing in some additional artwork while I’m at it. But go and visit Ode anyway, as it’s a serene, beautiful place.

52 weeks of colour challenge, week 5 – sepia

There are times of feeling isolated mentally and being located in the centre of an emotional mesa.

I wanted to trick this 52 weeks of colour challenge photo up with moody clouds and an atmospheric scenescape, but I’m empty to the core.

Oddly enough, I double-checked dictionary.com’s definition of mesa, and the word of the day was palingenesis: the recovery, the resurrrection, the transmigration of the soul. Ha.

Bound and free

Two concepts juxtapose in this image: feeling trapped in a fearful situation after being made redundant from my job recently, but realising the potential freedom of being released from a workplace that was draining my very lifeblood. It is early days in making the next move in my career and my attitude veers dangerously from optimism to insecurity many times a day, but I will fly again.

I am working on improving an element of my SL photography skills with each picture. My avatar’s right leg is overexposed; after spending an hour trying to shoot a new original I worked with what I had as I liked everything else. I need to study a bit more diligently to fly high with computer skills as well.
