About bluisthenewblack

I'm a Second Life Avatar who loves talking anything photography. I'm what I call a classic "WIP" Work-in-Progress. I'm trying to "hone" my skills in PhotoShop and by challenging myself with GREAT designers within Second Life this gives me a greater ability to showcase their designs as well as make myself a better photographer, blogger and help keep my purse strings a little more closed these days. *grins* As a side note I have been on Flickr for some time. I just recently decided to Blog as a way to further develop and highlight the smaller items sometimes missed in bigger pictures. https://www.flickr.com/photos/132125807@N06/

Hi Everyone! So things are going much better in my RL this week. Some positive moves have been going and things are looking a lot better for me and my position. So! I wanted to celebrate by trying at least to do 1 picture for WLRP. I love this event so much and honestly it’s one of the reasons why I loved SL in the very beginning of my Second Life. Dressing up, becoming someone new, trying new roles and subjects you are not familiar with or even comfortable with. That’s how we grow as people even if it is in play.

*takes a sip of her White Claw…Hey people it’s like 2pm my time…don’t judge 😛

Let’s sit and talk while you see….

Hi Everyone! So I’m sitting here typing this up because honestly I needed an escape from my RL. Uggh moving is just a pain and honestly I can’t wait for it to be done and over with. The housing market is CRAZY and finding our next place has been challenging to say the least.

~Shinyakuraiko~

Hi Everyone! Today’s picture are from a few of my Designers today that I just HAD to blog. It helped that I had a little bit of time (in-between packing, a sick kid and inspectors) to do this picture. It took me about 3 days to do but at least I got it done. I really wanted to do the picture and it was a nice distraction between my RL and SL world that I needed today.

If you are not aware. I lived in Japan for 5 years. loved every minute of it and I still carry a love for their lifestyle, their sense of family and support you always saw when talking to them. Even when I tried speaking my very broken up Japanese they were always so happy that I even tried. Very sweet people and so happy to have had that experience.

Hi Everyone! Well today I think it’s gonna be the last of my pictures for the next few days. Loads going on here in RL. Inspections, people in and out of my house, on edge and my mind just isn’t into taking pictures at the moment.

Hi Everyone! So today’s picture is a little bit dreamy, whimsical and sweet. I do like to do pretty pictures too I just typically lean towards….well I honestly don’t know what I lean towards but I do like this picture quite a bit.
