It’s a jungle out there.

Jungle Girl 011

I’ve had this outfit put together for several days now and was just waiting for the time that I could create a mini jungle or something of that nature to take photos.  After digging in my inventory I found something called the jungle island and attempted to rez it only to discover seconds later that it was the whole setup for a sim. Thankfully, I was up high in the sky on a platform and not on the ground when I made that colossal mistake.  I don’t think some of my neighbors would have been very appreciative of finding themselves buried in what could resemble the amazon forest.

It’s not the first time I have had this happen to me, except back then I was the new kid on the block and I buried a good part of the sim in an underground city.  I can laugh about it now.  It wasn’t so funny then.

Stop to Monkey Around 013

Instead of creating my own scene I thought why not search and see what I could find out on the grid.   I found this jewel of a place called the Makeahla Jungle, that has a tag line of “Rediscover the Heart of Nature.”  I was pleasantly surprised to find this place and see all the animals.  While most of them were mesh and stationary the ambiance of the place was very appealing.  I can’t wait to go back and explore again and take photos of the rest of the animals.

Fuschio DM

He knows me in ways no one ever has
He opens me to things I never knew existed
He drives me to insanity and pushes me to my depths
He is the beat of my heart, the pulse of my veins,
and the energy in my soul

HE IS….

Mala.

Mala

Cuando soy buena, soy buena;
cuando soy mala, soy mucho mejor.

I ran across this tattoo called “mala” and well I have some very fond memories of this name that means bad and so I just had to get it.

“Soy mucho mas buena…..la cosita”

I tried something a little different and that is using a texture as a background and then just added some light in a couple of places.  I much prefer setting up a scene or going on location though using this method can be useful at times.

Happy Thursday!

Capturing a wild boar.

 

01823

Here lately I have been in a changeable mode.  Like last night I was just standing at my landing point and it struck me that I have spent more time on that spot than anywhere else inside or outside in any of the sitting spots throughout.  Within ten minutes I took down the house, furniture and all the landscaping.  Standing there in an almost empty flat land I was thinking what comes next and so I put down these woods to get some inspiration.   It didn’t ignite in me any ideas and quite frankly I’m thinking of just renting a space that gives you a small allowance of prim to use.  I have never gone homeless for very long and it makes me antsy not having a place to park myself or having somewhere to open purchases.  Maybe by the time my tier is up in a few days I’ll have decided on something.

I was wearing just the dress as I was still working through some of the items that I picked up at The Secret Affair event when it dawned on me to use the woods as the backdrop.  Combining items from several of the fantasy events and here I am ready to capture a wild boar.

Stop!

“Love is like war; easy to begin, but very hard to stop.” ~ H.L. Mensken

Stop! In the name of love
Before you break my heart
Stop! In the name of love
Before you break my heart
Think it over
Think it over

{chorus from “Stop! In the name of love” song}

I was messing around yesterday in inventory with my child alt nearby as I transferred over things to her.  Somewhere doing that I got the notice that Genre was now open and decided to take a break and go over to take a look before the crowd rushed in.  This round focuses on post apocalypse and not really my thing, but I found the warrior breastplate top sort of funny and purchased it along with a few other items pictured.

I had no idea what I was going to do and now I’m just laughing at the outcome.

Good & Evil

0196

The dichotomy of good and evil has always been an interesting subject and I can safely say it dates as far back to the age of the bible.  I don’t plan to talk about morals or religion as that is a personal thing that I try never to debate unless it’s with people who will accept your difference of thoughts, beliefs and opinions and can still smile at you after the conversation.  I will say this.  Personally, I think the relevance lies in the seed of both good and evil that exists inside each of us.  It’s definitely a balancing act when it comes to choosing which one will win.

It’s only mid morning and its dark and raining here — so this picture feels perfect for the overcast day we’re having.
