Playing with Shadows

I could have also titled this blog post “playing in the shadows” and the message would have worked too. One thing I love about photography in SL is how people can take the same finite resource and interpret things in so many different ways. It’s partly knowledge and skill but it’s mostly how we see things, our ‘vision’ that makes each photo unique. Do we look for the light, choosing colour, fun and optimism? Or do we look to play in the shadows, revealing what we choose in a monochromatic manner? I’m not attempting to reveal the profound here, just open up food for thought. Although, ironically I have literally done that today and shown you how food obsessed I can be!

Not all Valentines have Happy Endings

It’s sad to say but it’s the truth. Not all romances are meant to be ‘and they lived happily ever after’. Some will make you cry; others will test your sanity. All will be a learning experience, one way or another. Perhaps the best we can ever hope for is that it ends amicably and we walk away with our dignity intact. Unfortunately for my friend, that wasn’t the case, although he makes a rather nice display in the living room 😉
