Almost raw

That is right! And I’ll explain what I mean…

Good morning by the way!

So, I took this picture over the weekend and I liked it at first. I didn’t love it, but I liked it more than I hated it, which is the case for me these days. I feel so worn out and as a result if I like a picture more than I hate it then it’s approved and I’m counting on the editing to, eventually, make me love it.

But sadly that wasn’t the case with this particular one. I didn’t like any of the edits I made and I deleted the picture twice. I retook and deleted again. After a while the voices in my head (yes, don’t act like you don’t have them) said enough. “Just post the raw shot!!”. But I did tweak the contrast a little so it’s almost raw.

The post features new stuff from Epiphany and Arcade with some older releases as well, so take a look at the credits below and have fun shopping!

Kitchen poetry

Good morning peeps! I’m bringing all sorts of delicious stuff for you today, so if you haven’t had breakfast yet, consider yourself warned. You will get hungry.

Dust Bunny and Apple Fall created some breakfast and baking goodies for the current round of Fameshed which I’m pretty sure you’ve purchased already but if not, you might want to consider it.

This certain kitchen set up reminded me a lot of when I was a kid and spent my summers in the village. It didn’t look exactly like that but it definitely brought back some happy memories.

All that being said, I need to go get something to eat as the joke’s on me. I’m hungry now.

The dude abides

Hello folks! Did everyone have a nice weekend? I did, it wasn’t a very productive one – not as much as I would want to anyways, but oh well, I’m only human! I don’t have much time to ramble today so I’ll just give you the day off and let you read the super long list of credits instead. Sometimes, it is more interesting than what I have to say.

Summer is gone

Good morning world. Is it me or was this a super short weekend? And this seems to be the case every weekend I have to go to work. Anyways I woke up early this morning but my mind is still sleeping and coffee hasn’t been effective yet, so I won’t be rambling much today.

My post is featuring the new stuff THOR made for PocketGacha event. The event runs through October 14th, so you still have a couple of weeks to win them. Also, in case you don’t know already, PocketGacha gives you the opportunity to buy the whole set instead of trying your luck with gacha. But you have to use tokens to do so. You can buy tokens at the PocketGacha mainstore (check credits below for landmark) – it’s 1 token for 1L$. After this round is over, most of the stores participating will make their creations gacha-only so you will no longer have the “buy full set” option.

You can tell I’m still sleeping from the syntax in the previous paragraph, no?

Redemption

“Don’t limit your challenges, Challenge your limits”

I had been informed about the Elysion June 2016 Photo Challenge last month, and even though I love challenges unfortunately, I don’t have the time or concentration needed to take part in it.

I’m a huge fan of the Elysion sim, so I immediately had to check the Redemption sim out. As expected, it didn’t disappoint. Whether you’re a fan of the theme of it or not, you will find so many beautiful spots to take pictures in.

I’d like to encourage everyone to participate and show their creativity and amazing ideas. Only hurry as it’s scheduled to close on the 27th of June.

Below you can find more details about the challenge.

Enjoy  ❤

Please read the info about the Elysion Photography Challenge that was sent via Notecard from the lovely and so talented owner of the sim Syn Beresford to all Elysion members:

“Hello Ely peoples,

 I wanted to send out some general info on an upcoming Photography Challenge that will be open to Elysion members during the month of June.  Sim Landmark and more info will be sent out via group notice when the challenge gets closer to opening date. This Photography challenge will be a three week long challenge that will be located at an additional sim where the look and feel of the sim, was inspired by the popular comic series PREACHER.

 For those of you who are a fan of Preacher, you will have more of an idea of what to expect, for those who are not familiar with the comic series

 AMC is about to kick off a new show based off the books, and you can watch the trailer at the link below (if you are wondering what in the hell I am yapping about)

  INSPIRING CREATIVITY

The idea of designing/building an entire sim with a limited life has been something that I have wanted to do for quite some time. It gives me a chance to challenge myself to create an additional environment, for members to explore, photograph, and enjoy. My hope is that the Redemption photography challenge will inspire members to enjoy and explore SL photography, regardless if they are a seasoned SL/RL photographer, or someone trying it for the first time. 

IN JUNE MAKE SOME BEAUTIFUL ART AND HAVE FUN!

 Photos taken at the Redemption Challenge Sim can be shared in the Elysion Flickr Pool, which now hosts over 11,000 photos from several talented photographers, the pool is located here:

 https://www.flickr.com/groups/elysion/

At the end of the challenge, there will be a Redemption Gallery Exhibit at The White Pines Gallery.

So get your camera’s ready!  And let’s get creative!  And as always, thank you everyone for always being supportive of Elysion, all of you have made Ely a very special place that continues to grow and evolve.

Syn”
