[#515] I Melt With You

Moving forward using all my breath
Making love to you was never second best
I saw the world crashing all around your face
Never really knowing it was always mesh and lace

Modern English, ♫I Melt With You♫

Lately it feels like the songs that come into my head to help me with providing an audio companion to the visuals has been what the younger crowd would refer to as my oldies. I prefer more to call them vintage tunes but just like the “oldies” of say my parents, these songs have their place in history for what it’s worth. It also seems that I can be a bit cheesy at times when I pick blog post soundtracks but it is definitely a lot of fun to dig deep and pull out something that most have either forgotten about or have never heard before.

I decided to do something super fun and with summer bordering on closing up for the season in the near future, I thought that perhaps an outdoors photo would work well with the pose and prop I am featuring in this post from Image Essentials.

Lickable is a bento couples pose that find to be (and I don’t often use this word) adorable. One thing that I know from experience though depending on the girl is if you decide to be bold enough to swipe some of her ice cream you best be prepared for the reaction afterwards which ranges from laughter to atomic rage. In this case I think I got lucky because I’ve managed to theft some of the cool treat and I’m still breathing!

With this pose and prop, Image Essentials has not over complicated a sweet moment between a couple (I think this could also be used with friends as well) and there was not a lot of adjusting that I had to do to get this pose to fit right; I also like that the ice cream cone prop is transferable so that you can hand it to the person you are posing with and are not be put in a bind because it is a copy and no transfer item.

If you want to grab your favorite person and have a fun little moment then this is definitely for you!

Image Essentials Lickable Pose & Prop features:

  • Bento enabled couples pose (Bento capable viewer required)
  • Transferable mesh ice cream cone
  • Exclusively @ Mesh Body Addicts Fair until 08/21

Footwear may be one of my weaknesses in the virtual world but when it comes to the real one I am very much a collector of hats (I have probably more than 100 styles from music bands to sports teams). BETRAYAL has released a snap-back style hat at The Men’s Jail that really caught my attention and I thought it would work well with my look. In a way I kind of look like Mars Blackmon (aka Spike Lee) from the movie “She’s Gotta Have It” and the Nike shoe commercials back in the 90’s which makes sense because I have an old school look while using an old school song for the soundtrack.

Many of the hats on the grid seem to be more flat billed and maybe it is something that is a difficult to create in whatever program is used by them to mesh. Personally I prefer hats that have a more curved bill (not sure if there is a term for it) than I do one that’s flat. BETRAYAL’s “The “CAP” is not entirely flat and has a bit of a curve so that makes it even better for me and there are several designs to choose from that are super stylish and cool.

Out of all the items from The Men Jail that I’ve liked, this one is probably the best because I do enjoy hats so much and finding one on the grid that I would consider awesome is somewhat difficult. I give this release high marks and it is something that helps keep the products you find at The Men Jail diverse and not more of the same that you sometimes see with events.

BETRAYAL The “CAP” FATPACK features:

  • 100% mesh
  • Resize upon click
  • 13 different styles to choose from (B Ball used in photos)

For a second straight post I am wearing the RetroNerd Glasses from Paparazzi because I absolutely love them and intend to wear them as much as I can and with all the different style options that are at my disposal I won’t have to worry about running out of choices. This time though I have turned them from sunglasses (as I used them in blog #514) to regular glasses. Being able to switch them back and forth when I want to is definitely an added bonus.

Most of my look are things that I’ve blogged in previous posts and have had in my closet for a while. I find that if I don’t return to some of my favorite things that it is all just a huge waste in the end and whether I have received it as a blogger pack or if I have purchased it myself it still is like taking a handful of money and setting it ablaze.

There were a lot of items in my last post which makes this a little bit easier on the eyes as I begin to wrap this up I realize that trying to feature too many things in one blog post can be overwhelming and once in a while having things be more simplistic can be a good thing. Also I do like creating scenes and taking photos that are not always entirely dark in nature as with this I tried to capture the mood of my surroundings with the best possible light.

That is all I have for this post but check back to see what I’m up to next and I thank anyone who comes by and takes a look! Until our paths cross again, onto the next conversation…

[#509] Not Tonight, Not Tomorrow

I wish I can hear your voice
And don’t leave me alone in this bed
I wish I could touch you once more
And don’t leave me alone in this bed

Framing Hanley, ♫Alone In This Bed (Capeside)

Usually I don’t like to try and post back to back posts where the content is on the super serious side or that deals with loss but sometimes it can’t be helped. It also just so happened that I rediscovered a song as I was trying to figure out a soundtrack to aid the visual I came up with that you see above. I needed something that fit the “Bento Male Pillow Pose Pack” from [IsHere] Poses that is for sale right now at the Pose Fair. As I start to wind down the coverage for the event I definitely think this is been a very productive and creative time for me. I’m very grateful to be teamed up with such a great event like Pose Fair.

In the last few days I reconnected myself with a band that I really enjoyed and still enjoy listening to named Framing Hanley. The story behind how they got their name is rather touching and very honorable and if you’ve never had the opportunity to take a listen to them then definitely click the link above to listen to the song that serves as the background of this blog entry. To give you a bit of info on the band, someone very close to them that did a lot of promoting and photography for them tragically died in a car accident in 2006 and in dedication to her when getting signed to a major label they took part of her name as theirs.

A hunch of mine is that this song has a tie in to her as well but I’m not 100% certain but it would make sense. Losing someone is never an easy thing and it takes a lot to eventually come to a place where you’ve accepted it. You don’t ever forget but you come to the terms that this person is gone and depending on what kind of beliefs you have (definitely not trying to spurn a religious debate of any kind) there’s a chance you may see them again on the other side.

So getting back to the [IsHere] Poses set, I chose to work with this idea of going to sleep missing someone that’s been lost and longing to have them back again and not wanting to face the consequences of laying in the bed alone. I really feel that I captured the mood of that feeling well and the end results were better than I anticipated.

Here’s a bit more info about the pose set that I used a pose from in this scene.

[IsHere] Poses Bento Male Pillow Pose Set features:

  • 5 bento static male poses
  • Mesh pillows included for each pose
  • Available @ Pose Fair until July 31st

[IsHere] Bento Male Pillow Pose Pack

Considering the fact that I did this shoot in just my boxers there isn’t any other clothing that I’m featuring in this post but I am wearing one of the latest hairs from Modulus which is currently a part of the Go by FaMESHed. If you’re not familiar with how that works you should definitely check out their website to get all of the details in how it works. It you want a small Cliff’s Notes version of what it’s about then let me tell you what I know.

It starts by getting a HUD at FaMESHed HQ and then you can shop at the stores currently featured for the specific month and you earn points by getting the exclusive item from those stores and once you’ve accumulated enough points you can get special items that are only available in this manner so it’s a cool way to get one of a kind items that once they are no longer available through Go, they are gone for good.

The “Benji Hair” a tuft of hair hanging down the front of the forehead going down towards the eyes and I can honestly say that you don’t see too many styles like this so to say it is unique would be very accurate. It could even be viewed as a punk rock hairstyle as I’ve seen many musicians of that genre have similar hair in the past. With each release this brand continues to get better and I know that soon they’ll be adding more female styles to their product lineup and that’s great to hear as well.

Modulus Benji Hair features:

  • 40 different hair colors to choose from (via 5 applier HUDs)
  • Fatpack option available
  • Integrated color tinting as a part of applier HUD
  • Available through August 10th as a part of Go by FaMESHed

For the second straight blog I’ve been wearing the new male bento head from Vista Animations named “Gerard”. Right now the head is in beta but a pending final release is coming soon so when that has been issued then I will certainly give more thoughts about this product as well as skins from 3rd Party designers to accompany it. First impressions though are I think the animations are superb and definitely can be a contender to the brands that are heavily favored in the market.

Keep your sights on the blog for more about Vista Animations “Gerard” in future posts!

I feel it is the appropriate time to wrap the blog up to start planning the next scene and my final coverage of July’s round of Pose Fair which the next time I will be covering it will be when it returns again in October. I certainly anticipate this next round because of this one being so enjoyable and helping me focus my creativity.

Until our paths cross again, it’s onto the next conversation…

[#508] Well, I Do

If they say

Who cares if one more light goes out
In the sky of a million stars?
It flickers, flickers
Who cares when someone’s time runs out
If a moment is all we are?
We’re quicker, quicker
Who cares if one more light goes out?
Well, I do

Linkin Park, ♫One More Light

No truer words could be said at this moment as I’m taking a special moment from my regularly scheduled blogging to put out this tribute post. Plenty of people think it is silly how society as a whole becomes attached to celebrities (Actors/Actresses, Musicians, Authors and other known persons) but they come into our lives and in some way make an impact on us that is with us for however long we exist.

When someone is no longer on this planet whether it be of old age, disease, accident or even suicide it’s impact can have a huge effect on the society which valued the body of work they have given the world and that is why tonight I am remembering Chester Bennington. His voice and words may have been from one degree to another from despair to hope they’ve lasted in many of Linkin Park’s fans that are still reeling from a year ago when he took his own life.

Everyone can try to play armchair therapist or say that there’s always a way to fix things but maybe sometimes it is too late for someone to realize it and they feel it is too far help. Many of us wish that we could have given back to him everything he gave to the fans and it will always ring through our minds and hearts. I’ve spoken to several people today who have been helped in some way by his words, that have helped them cope and grieve over their issues to rise up from them and take that knowledge to help the next person.

I as much as anyone else miss him and through the music of the band that we do have (and maybe from things that could be released from the vault later on if there is such a thing) we’ll always be able to carry his memory. If it is possible and anyone is reading this tonight, light a candle in honor of Chester whether you enjoyed his art or not and not only him, light it for someone you’ve lost.

[#504] Inside Out

So here we go, Here I am
Its not for me or for them
‘Cause we forgive and forget
And then we do it again

Dangerkids, ♫Inside Out

When there are so many different events with more than a handful of items I want to take home with me or sometimes in my case I might happen to be a blogger for the event and have so much to choose from because it is all so good the reality is that time wise I’m not going to be able to make posts for every single item during the event so I’ll have to pick and choose what products feature in a photo (or photos) for a blog post.

However, no matter what the show always must continue and I’ve got more coverage of Pose Fair for you! This event which is now quarterly instead of just a singular month during the year is continuing to be a juggernaut for those who are big into blogging and photography and need things to help fuel their creativeness. I can tell you that the things I’ve discovered from the event have really given me quite a bit of a boost.

X.T.C Poses has a rather nice male pose set to accompany the two female sets they have up for sale at Pose Fair, “Giovanni” is something I consider to be a good set and I knew right away what I wanted to do with it once I unpacked it. I think that overall the full frame shot I captured was exactly what I envisioned when I was putting the scene together.

X.T.C Poses Giovanni FATPACK Pose Set features:

  • 5 bento static poses (1 alternate pose for lower waist)
  • static poses and poseballs included for your convenience
  • Animation Overide poses with breathing also included
  • Available @ Pose Fair until July 31st!

POSE FAIR! Giovanni Bento set (breathing)

It’s only been a few days now since The Men Jail paroled it’s July round to the public and there are a lot of great items at the event that I’m pretty excited about using in my photos and one of them is the [LOB] Running Shirt (which yes it is more like a tanktop but we’re not really keeping score are we?) This tank fit so perfectly with the HOLLOWAY jeans from {Cold-Ash} from my last post (which I am wearing in another denim color). With the lighting I chose to use I decided to stray away from wearing the black version of the tank and went with the gray (I would say heather gray but again who is keeping score) so the details of it could be seen more clearly.

I also like that I coordinated my outfit to have jeans and a shirt that had strategic rips in them to make them a bit similar; I thought it was a good idea to go for as well with the soundtrack of the blog as well considering that one of the themes to it is destruction. Makes the most sense to me at least where that’s concerned.

[LOB] Running Shirt FATPACK features:

  • Color changing HUD that includes 5 colors
  • Includes shoulder towel (not shown)
  • HUD for shoulder towel also has 5 color options
  • Sizes for Belleza (Jake), Signature (Gianni) and SLink Physique
  • Available @ The Men Jail until July 28th!

In this blog I’m featuring a recent hair that was originally released at last months Man Cave but with some real world things I got a little bit behind and missed covering it while it was at the event but I really like the hair and want to make sure that those who may not have been able to get to the event while it was there have another opportunity to get it now that it has been moved to the mainstore as a release.

The “Dalton Hair” is a nice shorter side-combed style that really works as a summer cut because it’s not super long and you can easily shave the back and sides of your head (ie shaved hairbase ofc) and it will still look fantastic. For the time being I returned to darker tones of hair and can’t specifically say I have a reason why it just seems to fit at the moment and that’s the great thing about being able to change from one moment to the next is that perhaps for my next photo I can sport another color. Modulus has added several of the recent event items that have lapsed into their store and marketplace so check them out after you finish reading this blog entry (or you can always tab out and come back because I’m totally cool with that!)

Modulus Dalton Hair features:

  • Male 100% mesh hair (could be also unisex)
  • 40 different colors to choose from (5 different color packs)
  • FATPACK option available
  • Integrated color picker within hair HUD for added customization
  • Available right now at the Modulus Mainstore!

Before I get to the next thing that I’m putting a spotlight on in this blog, I’d like to take a moment to thank the creator of Paparazzi (maker of fine backdrops), Drew Sunflower. I’ve had several interactions with him over the last month or so and personally I think he’s a great person. Not that I’m trying to say that all creators aren’t but there are some that seem to go over and beyond to show appreciation to the people who blog their products that may not blog for them specifically so kudos to you for being one heck of a person. With that said it’s a good way to segue into the next and last spotlight of this blog.

Equal10 is now open for the July round and I haven’t had much of a chance to take a look at all of what’s up for sale but I did see a small handful of things that I’m going to have to take a trip there to give a closer look to. Aside from that, Paparazzi has released a really cool backdrop called “Metropolis Bridge” that really blew me away. The construction and the overall feel of this kind of put me in that sort of Bladerunner mixed in with a future possible Tokyo vibe. I really can’t get over the detail and if I don’t cut myself off I’d never stop talking about it.

Paparazzi Metropolis Bridge Backdrop features:

  • 100% Mesh with ability to resize through built in script
  • Bridge overlooking futuristic downtown city
  • Neon accents which look fantastic in certain lighting
  • Available @ equal10 until August 05th

This post also contains other items from The Men Jail but instead of talking about them now I plan to feature them in perhaps my next post where they’ll get their own coverage with a more up front view so that I can promote them properly as they should and because I feel they are good products it’s the best way for me to be able to do that.

There is also more Pose Fair for me to attack so hopefully readers stick around for that (I hope you do for sure!) as well as more from The Men Jail and I’m sure I will mix it up with other great items as well from Modulus, Native Urban, Go&See and plenty of others. I’ve also heard that Vista will be releasing their first bento male head soon which is super exciting and I definitely would love to give coverage to that upon its release.

Time for me to wrap this up and of course until our paths cross again it’s onto the next conversation…

[#495] Feeling Hot, Hot, Hot!

Me mind on fire
Me soul on fire, feeling hot, hot, hot
Party people
All around me feeling hot, hot, hot

Buster Poindexter, ♫Hot, Hot, Hot

Never in a million years did I ever think I’d be inspired by any song by Buster Poindexter in the history of ever but apparently I am hitting my TBT a day early and going back in time to the late 80’s (1987 to be exact). I was wracking my brain to see if I could find a song that would fit what I was going for which is technically a summer theme but most of the songs I thought of or remembered didn’t quite work until I remembered this gem.

The Men Jail has been underway now for about a week or so and plenty of great things to go there to check out and while not every item might fit your fashion style or decorating style, I feel there is something for everyone and there is at least one thing that could be taken home upon visiting the event.

We’re getting to that point where (at least in my part of the USA) summer is coming and I wanted to capitalize on that with a few of the products that I have going on in this entry including the “Outside Washers” by Grime. This outdoor shower is jam packed with different things that will make anyone wonder why they don’t have anything like this on their beach. It has many editable faces so that it can be recolored to the heart’s desire and poses for both singles and couples (which I may warn you some of the poses are not PG so keep that in mind!) The shower itself is only 19LI so it really won’t break your land bank and it is also materials enabled as during the time of my taking the photos I could see the reflection of things bouncing off of it which is pretty darn cool too.

Since I am showering in my main photo, I wanted my hair to seem like it was a bit wet when I did my closeup shots and the “Joshua” hair by Modulus fit that perfectly. 40 hair colors to choose from via 5 different color packs (with a FATPACK option available) along with an integrated color picker in each HUD that make Modulus one of the best bargains for your money when it comes to hair. Previous things I have said concerning the brand still stand up and they are by far a favorite and one I would recommend to anyone who asked me that was in the market for a new style or just coming back from an absence and needed something fresh.

You can find this hair at the mainstore now as it was previously a part of the last FaMESHed Go round, but it recently ended on the 10th of June. Now you don’t have an excuse to go to the store and find yourself a new hairdo or two (or three even).

I have a double dose of Modulus in this blog post and am also showing off their new “Eyebrows Set 1” that recently made its debut at Hipster Men’s Event. The included HUD gives you several different color options along with a tintable white application that can be adjusted to the needs of those wearing them. These brows have appliers for both CATWA and LeLutka (Omega) so that no one loses out on being able to have these for their aesthetics.

Hipster Men’s Event runs until the 16th of June so you still have a few days to go browse the event which is something I’d encourage because there are some nice things there.

Salt & Pepper is a brand that I previously only remembered for female hair but it seems they are branching out into other things and you can get a taste of that at the current round of The Men’s Department with the “Ethan” tanktop. There are so many things I could say about this that I almost do not have the right words to correctly put my thoughts in order.

This tanktop is part of a line of products that work with the water in-world so that when you go into it, it becomes wet. When you come out of the water you can slowly watch it dry (which takes a total of two and a half minutes to complete) or there is a quick dry towel included so that you can wipe yourself off right away and instantly become dry. I did my best to capture the stage of it being wet in my closeup photo so that you can see this at work and I think it is one of the coolest things to come around in a while. From what I have learned there are products like showers and squirt guns that work along with this and several women’s products already out there (with more to come) which will add a lot of fun to the summer months (and those not so real life summer ones because hey it can stay warm 365 days a year if you want!)

Sizes for the tanktop include: Belleza (which is what I am wearing), Signature (Gianni), and SLink Physique and comes packaged with instructions and the quick dry towel that I mentioned to bring the tanktop back to its normal state.

The Men’s Department is currently underway and you have until the 31st of June to swing by and grab a demo of this really neat product.

Now that I’ve got this under wraps I am going to call it a blog post and journey back into my creative place so I can work on what’s up next (plenty of things that I have to utilize so I don’t have to worry about it too much). There’s more items from The Men Jail coming as well as some new footwear by Native Urban that I am looking forward to wearing as well as more hair from Modulus!

Until our paths cross again, onto the next conversation…

[#489] With A Little Help From My Friends

Oh I get by with a little help from my friends
Mm gonna try with a little help from my friends
Oh I get high with a little help from my friends
Yes I get by with a little help from my friends

The Beatles, ♫With A Little Help From My Friends

Anytime I get to use a song by The Beatles as the soundtrack to a post I definitely jump at the opportunity and with the latest pose from Image Essentials, this was perfect for it.

Gimme A Boost is a bento pose with tree prop where I’m trying my best at climbing a tree but have enlisted Brena’s help to give me that little extra push to get up there. Now the question is when I do get up into the tree what am I going to do there and even more importantly how am I going to get down? I’m not a fan of heights so that could prove to be a bit of an issue!

You can find this unique pose at the current round of eBento that is just at about the halfway point but you have until the 31st of May to head to the event and take a look for yourself.

The current round of FaMESHed is still going strong and I managed to dig into my haul from the event on the second trip I made to it by putting on the DUFAUX “Jordan” tanktop. I buckled and because it had FATPACK only options that is the route I went as it’s getting to be that time of year where I might utilize tanktops in my photos and this is clearly a well made product that has several features that I find to be interesting.

The straps on the tanktop have tongue closures like you might find on a fanny pack (yes I know I’m reminding people of a horrible trend that seems to be trying to snake its way back into popularity). To my knowledge I have not seen anything like this in any of the fashions that I own but it makes it different from any other tanktop that I have in my wardrobe.

One of the coolest features about the “Jordan” tanktop is that it has the ability for you to import a design and apply it to the front of the tanktop. That way if you have a blog logo or some kind of branding you want to show on the front of your tanktop then you could proudly display it for all you encounter to see. This is the second release from DUFAUX that I believe uses this and it’s definitely something I think is cool.

The Men’s Department by far is one of the staples for male fashion, accessories and furniture and probably one of my most frequently visited events. I may have said this before or I may repeat it again in the future but that is only because it is the truth and one of the sources to help me find new brands to add to my arsenal or keep up with brands that I love.

During this round of TMD my friends at Modulus released a new hair that I instantly knew would be just right for the look I was putting together. “Danny” is the latest in the Alpha Hair line from the brand and it gives me a real chill vibe which is what I wanted my look to portray and for the second time I am using the “Roots” HUD which is one of the new features that was recently added to Modulus products.

I have been a part of the Modulus blogger team for a long time, since the beginning I’d say and one thing that I can say as an observer of things is that the quality has always been top notch but the fact that it continues to get better with each passing moment is a testament to the fact that when it comes to releasing products you are getting the very best out of anything Modulus releases no matter if it is hair, skins or once in a while clothing (which it’s been a long time since a clothing item has been but never say never about them returning).

As I wrap this up I definitely want to express that I really enjoyed putting this scene together as it was light, funny, and humorous. I never know what is going to inspire me at a split second’s notice and I start snapping photos and the range of feelings and emotions vary on these pages and that is something that onlookers will come to know from my work. Though I certainly enjoy hearing about putting smiles on people’s faces or knowing that something I might have written or a photo itself has given someone a topic of conversation. Anyone who may be observing and would like to have a conversation feel free to contact me because I’d really enjoy hearing from you.

It’s been a pleasure once more and until our paths cross again,

onto the next conversation…

[#487] Wrong…

I was marching to the wrong drum
With the wrong scum
Pissing out the wrong energy
Using all the wrong lines
And the wrong signs
With the wrong intensity

Depeche Mode, ♫WRONG

Most of you probably have no idea how long since I’ve been blogging items from the pose store, WRONG, that I’ve wanted to use this Depeche Mode song as the theme for a photo and today was that opportunity so I grabbed the ball and ran with it!

Truly this brand has really great male poses and they’ve done some fantastic collabs with The Owl that I’ve also featured in photos not only by myself but with guests as well and there is so much care that goes into these poses and I am rather glad that they’ve helped contribute to my visual creations and certainly encourage you to check out their new store location that has recently open and find out for yourself.

Now that I’ve gotten that thought out of my head there’s plenty of great things I’m wearing that helped make this photo possible and most of the time I save the best for last but I am going to work from head to toe and start off with my my hair which is called “Mason” and is from my friends at Modulus. This release is a longer length hair (just past the ear/neck) which I’m always a fan of and a lot of the time you don’t see that with guys hairs, they are usually more of an above the ear length and swept to one particular side.

Of course I’m using the HUD with the brown tones in it because that’s just been the mood I’ve gone with as you usually see blonde hair or black so I tend to go middle of the road. I definitely do not see myself as a red/ginger type guy though I have thrown that in a time or two when the direction of my photo needed it. There’s 5 different shades in the pack which make up part of the 25 hair colors the hair comes with; they are also all available in a convenient FATPACK option which includes all 5 color HUDS and each of them provides an additional integrated color picker so that you can give additional color tinting to your hair.

You can find this hair at the main store which I’ve provided transportation to in the credits below!

Men Only Monthly is halfway through its current cycle and the shirt I am wearing by {FE Style} is currently available at the event right now. The “RUDEKEM” t-shirt comes in 10 different graphic designs and also has 8 solid colors to choose from which you can purchase separately or altogether with a money saving FATPACK. As much as I love this shirt and most of the styles offered I had to make a decision based on budget and I chose to go with the graphic shirt that has “Mr. Chaos” on the front of it and this was before I ever chose any of the rest of the outfit or my setting but it seems pretty fitting in hindsight.

Men Only Monthly runs up through the 15th of May before they close for restocking their shelves with new products.

Cold-Ash is back with brand new footwear for a second straight TMD release! This time it comes in the form of boots (the Valkyrie sneakers that I enjoy so much were last months release). These work style boots come with the option of the full version or a half version which fits under pant legs (and is how I’m dislplaying them in this look). The WOODCREEK boots have 8 color options to choose from and have sizes to fit Belleza, Signature (Gianni), and TMP with an Unrigged size for classic avatars included for good measure.

The Men’s Department is open until the 31st of May so there’s still a LOT of time for you to head over there and check these boots out and browse through other equally as good designers and their products.

Another blog post is in the books and as I wrap this up I continue to look at the number of each post knowing that I am drawing closer to a goal I never thought or expected I would get to… 500 posts. I’ve definitely learned a lot since I made my first blog entry back in 2014 and continue to learn and grow with each passing day and photo I take. The one thing about blogging and artistry is that it is not always everyone’s cup of tea and for every 1 or 2 people that dislike something there may be twice as many that like it or vice versa. Trying to please everyone is not something that works and trying to do it is only a fools mission. Enjoy what you do because if others see the pride that you take in yourself it might just be infectious enough to spread around.

Until our paths cross again, onto the next conversation…
