Second Life Photos: What I Like #12

Feed Your Creativity

Feed Your Creativity by Jewel Appletor aka Karalyn Hubbard

I like Feed Your Creativity by Jewel Appletor aka Karalyn Hubbard. Do I even have to say why? Her entire stream is filled with similar work, bringing together elements of Second Life® in shots that look like illustrations, but actually have very little post-processing.. While the subject is centered, it is not symmetrical, the flowers are in the lower left and upper right, framing her face. I just love everything about this picture. However, picking just one item from her stream was difficult. Her newest picture of birds is darling.

I like On Toes by Tank Jarrod Holden.

I like On Toes by Tank Jarrod Holden. When I came across this photostream last night, he had only 109 followers. How can this be? His entire stream is filled with extraordinary landscapes. I probably should have chosen one of the landscapes, but this whimsically romantic picture just appealed to me.  It is simple, but effectively creates a mood and tells a story. The light from behind helps create another plane, the people in the foreground, the mid ground, and the background outside Continue reading

In Riding a Horse, We Borrow Freedom

In Riding a Horse, We Borrow Freedom

I thought I blogged this a week ago. Oops! First, I have to deal with the quote I used for the title. The internet is a disaster for quote lovers and this is an example of why. Which Helen Thompson? My guess this quote may have come from the wife of the race horse trainer, David Thompson. I am pretty darn sure it did not come from this Helen Thompson and by the way, I am even more sure that fifth quote is also one that belongs to the woman whose life was in racing, not the psychologist studying gender differences who was born in 1874.

Second Life Photos: What I Like #11

Gelato by Michelle Halster

I like Gelato by Michelle Halster. The ice cream cone is placed according to the Rule of Fifths and it is a focal point in this photo, however, its real intensity comes from the eye contact between the two of them, the way they hold each other’s hands. That sense of being in a world of their own is accentuated by the sky forming an arc around them.

I like <3 by ♥Talija♥. First I love forsythia, so this immediately drew my eye. I love the way she uses the flowers to make a frame within the frame, encircling her face.  Continue reading

Rescued

“Some old-fashioned things like fresh air and sunshine are hard to beat.”

My great-niece recently rescued a couple horses from a kill pen, the third generation of horse rescuers in my family. Kill pen horses are usually sold for pet food because they are considered problematic, untrainable, vicious and dangerous. They usually require a level of training most people just will not invest. In time, though, they can learn to trust and be trusted. If you want to see the evidence, see my great-grand niece cleaning this rescued horse’s hooves just two weeks into training…and the foundations for a fourth generation of rescuers begins. It was thinking about them, the work they are doing, and that two other nieces are doing, that I thought I might take this month’s house from Barnesworth for Collabor88 and set up a farm. I tinted it, one of the things I love about Barnesworth homes.

Mornings Are Slow

I am behind on so much blogging work, but right now I’m lazy so I thought I would just sit around my house and do nothing.

Well, that’s something, anyway, right?
