Unsaid

I’ve had this pose from Luna Jubilee on my to blog list for a couple of weeks and finally today I was able to meet up with my friend Danny and make it happen. While we were shooting, Danny decided that he looked like he was thinking about some other woman in this pose instead of the one draped all over him. Curious, I asked who the other woman was that he was thinking about. He replied immediately, “Joni Mitchell.” Now, a girl just can’t get mad about that.  Anyway, he fiddled around a bit with the pose until he felt he looked properly attentive. I’ve included both photos here. Thanks to Danny for the help…I am glad he had Joni to get him through it.

Rain

Sometimes a hurt is so deep, deep, deep
You think that you’re gonna drown
Sometimes all I can do is weep, weep, weep
With all this rain fallin’ down

Strange, how hard it rains now
Rows and rows of big dark clouds
When I’m holding on underneath this shroud
Rain

Dudes

It’s always nice to find good guy poses, and at Pose Fair this year Londenia Leistone of Ridic has released this guy-friend pose, named simply “Dudes Pose.” So I went in search of some of my favorite SL dudes, Leto and Steel, who are always fun to photograph. Since they also expressed appreciation for Winter Thorn’s Harvest Chairs,  I am including a photo of them sitting there, as well. Thanks to both of them for helping me out with these photos.

Accord

Pose Fair begins April 11th, and it is always a time when I like to break out and do some different types of photos. Today Bastion helped me with Accord from Alyx Aerallo of Grafica. The balance and elegance of this pose demonstrate the aptness of its name. I also need to give Bastion Flare a shout out; I often call on him right at the last minute for photos like this and when I tell him what the photo theme is he always shows up looking exactly right for the photo. And last night was a marathon photo session in which he showed up with not just one but three separate-yet-awesome looks. He knows how to throw down a look, does our Bastion. I am grateful for his friendship and his generosity.

Favorite Time of Light

This great rowboat pose from oOo and consignment is at this round of the Liaison Collaborative and I enjoyed photographing the sweet moment it evokes. Another favorite of mine right now is the simply crafted but beautiful Country Church from Tya Fallingbridge of Pixel Mode, which is available at this round of Fameshed. Thanks to Danny for helping me with the pose today.
