Yesterday I got a notecard on second life photography. I was so excited, it has several phototool settings for different types of photography, architectural, landscapes, portraits, etc. These two photos were taken in the same spot but with different settings so in one photo the barn appears very close when in fact it is far away as in the second photo. Whoo!
I decided to practice my new found knowledge at Open Latte Cafe Bubbles sim. It is very pastoral, with fields, a barn, farm animals and equipment as well as a cozy coffee house. Lots of photo opportunities as well as a feeling of overall relaxation. And I like the music too….it helps with the ambiance when there is good music.
Most of us have a favorite color and often that color is a reflection of our personality. Kylie Quinn has an excellent display on this topic. This exhibit was first shown at the SLB 14 celebration. It is currently at her Reflections of My Life Gallery.
No surprise considering my name is Emeraldmist, one color I am strongly drawn to is green. I stopped by Kylie’s gallery to read up on it. When I came to the last line, I found out that people who love green enjoy sitting in a cafe, watching the world go by. This is funny because I just recently opened the Emerald Cafe, which is across the street from Kylie’s art gallery!
