Setting Sail

Seek opportunity, not security.

A boat in a harbor is safe, but in time it’s bottom will rot.

~H. Jackson Brown, Jr

This is the time of year when everyone is reflecting on the events of last year, and the changes they want to make for this year. Well maybe I’m a bit late in doing it. My excuse, I was on holiday and really, really enjoyed it, but as all things in life, holidays end and life has gone back to reality. This means, it’s time to concentrate on today and the new year. Reminiscing about 2013, there were two major lows for me, which I don’t really want to discuss as it’s the past. These lows made me focus on more positive things in my life, one of which were my blog and it went from strength to strength. Thank you so much for all your support guys!

I read the quote above, and realized that even though my blog is doing well at the moment, I need to set sail and try new things with it. I need to learn more techniques photography wise and this year, I really, really want to do more writing. This was my goal for last year too, and looking back, I think I have grown, but mostly in the photography area and not so much in writing.

I’m excited about this year, with all it’s challenges and all the new things I’m about to learn. It’s already a great start! Here’s to 2014!

Classic

I have been crashing a lot with Firestorm lately, especially when tp’ing. Sometimes so bad that all my Firestorm settings resets, this is annoying. So a friend on Plurk suggested I use Catznip as she finds it the most stable viewer. I tried it, and so far so good! I had to take some picture to see if it measures up and it’s the same. I miss a few of Firestorm’s features, like the quick preferences and that it saves my snapshot settings. But like all things new, I just have to get used to it.

Since I really didn’t plan on blogging this, I didn’t really look for a new outfit, but as this is about style and not the newest thing on the grid, I changed my mind. This is some old classics from Maitreya, Mon Tissue and Slink and I need to draw your attention to the necklace from Magic Nook, one of my favorites. Go check it out! Also the venue  is a new cafe for live shows, called Rebake,

Learn as I go

I have discovered that Photoshop can only do that much. The actual photo needs to be of some quality too. So I have been doing a lot of research around this. Strawberry Singh also just did a new  tutorial on SL photography with Viewer 3, but can really be applied to any Viewer. You can have a look at it here. So I have tried to combine what I have learned, but I need way more practice!
