Inspiration Recreation

Strawberry Singh's blog post, Inspiration Recreation, made focus on a blogger/photography challenge by Arora Zanzibar.  Recreate an RL photograph in SL.

I think I did a pretty decent job for my first time out.  The RL pic is from Arora Zanzibars SL Inspiration Recreations pinterest board.  Since it needed an industrial setting with a lot of windows, a logical setting was Shaylin's and my hangar dwelling, in the fly-in community/adventure group, Wild Blue Yonder.  The base pose is by webmistrex Xue, Amwall _m01.  I used the Amimare hud to adjust it.  Briefs are by DUFAUX, called TMP brief no1 sporty black/white.  The body is the deluxe male from TMP.  The hair is from Armidi, The Ibiza (Mocha.)

The building is by Fanatik Architecture, called ERA.

Here's the RAW file.

StrawberrySingh.com Monday Meme: Motivational Poster Meme.

Continuing on the Monday meme challenger put forth by Strawberry Singh, this week the idea of a motivational poster was put forth.  You can find her original blog entry here: Second Life Motivational Meme.

Simple Rules:
Meme instructions: Create a motivational poster using any image from Second Life with some motivating words about Second Life.

The words I chose are words that Shaylin uses at the end of every concert or DJ event she does, and they are simple but powerful.  They are also not exclusive to Second Life, but should be used as a part of every aspect of a persons life.

You never know what tomorrow will bring, so always live in the present.
