How does your avatar look today ?

As a sort of treat for myself, I've decided to inflict this self-indulgence upon you all: a simple, unadorned, unplanned, and unprocessed head shot (in black and white, because I'm really incapable of leaving well enough alone).

It's a bit bleh, but it felt nice just snapping it. Sometimes, a simple Polaroid feels just right.

I think you captured here that simple 'real life' shot you were trying for earlier in the thread. Expression, lighting, eye focus all say 'candid shot' imo.

Lovely pic.

The black and white closeup is really good, but this is one where I think the colour adds a LOT. The tones (and light and shadow) in this shot are absolutely breathtaking.

Thank you! I'm not very happy with either of them. The reason I went with black and white on the closeup is that the foliage in the background was causing too much distraction; it was looking a bit chaotic. I wasn't really in a "snapshotting mode" when I did those, so it is my goal to do something better along the same theme today (Traditional Chinese dress in a garden setting). :)

I love the shadow play on this, nicely done! So, I'm guessing butts are ok. That's good to know!

We can thank @Talligurl - she took the bold leap and it inspired me. LOL

Your skin looks great... what is it? I also think if you could change your graphics settings to Ultra (in Firestorm), it would solve the pixelation on your hair. But, lovely set regardless ;)

It's Skinnery toffee, and I just love how it looks!

Bahahaha! Just noticed SL glitchiness: these are not moth holes; they are the "flowers" that are turned off. Ugh. But it's funny, so gonna leave it.

Not much time left for me today before New Years Eve kicks off!!! It's now 1600hrs here.

But since we're doing head & shoulders just now, here's one which shows my Skinnery Toffee skin at its best....... I don't see me ever changing this skin....... :)

I'm not normally this serious.........haha!

Forget that "Peacehaven" one, *this* is an accurate Chinese Garden if you're interested in visiting, very well done: "Chinese Garden for Peace" (Region: Qoheleth):

It is SL; no need to be in traditional or any Chinese or Asian outfit! 

EDIT to add this: to show you how my pictures cannot do it justice:

My pictures were near the small pond ("Navy Blue" rooftops at the right) - and shooting away from the main garden
(The giant Pagoda was behind the camera) :)

Thanks, Roxy!

Serendipity. I was fiddling with something while my AO cycled through on my screen, and I thought . . . that looks nice.

I sometimes (a lot) over-complicate things.

Liberate the butt? That's a battle won. Kudos to our brave pioneers who led the charge!

But that was yesterday.

Tomorrow? FREE THE NIPPLE!

This isn't from today, but I had to snap a pic with my sister since our schedules are crazy and sometimes only get to see each other once a week, if we're lucky.

I thought we already fought the law and the law won..

Yeah. The law usually does, doesn't it?

Should we gird our loins, and ungird our chests, for a new onslaught? Mount the barricades once more with our battered and bruised, but defiant, breasts, and protest this terrible injustice?

 

Or just check out the post-Xmas sales on the MP?

Hmmmmm.

Rifles are for the Establishment.

Real revolutionaries use pitchforks and knitting needles.

And maybe nipple clamps.

Really, really tight ones.
