Consumerism isn't just an environmental issue though, but a social and economic one.

Yes it is way more complex than I implied, yet all those complications do not apply in SL either. We still have guilt free consumerism in SL,  which was my actual point.

I'm really a plain colours type of person, but recently I've experimented more with bolder patterns. 

I was so happy with Skye's yellow summer dress that I went shopping for myself, there's a thing......and bought a couple of items.

This one is Kona low back summer dress (L$200 with 15 texture hud),   paired with Mosquito's Way Callie shoes (L$299 with a huge texture hud).

I'm a really picky shopper, and I know what I like. I went through pages of stuff in MP to get just a few items.

Summery is a good theme for today!!! 

I went shopping with B's blessing, and got a couple of things from [hh]….there's a nice short dress as group gift, and I pushed the boat out. I don't often do long dresses or wedges, but this dress (FP) is only L$99. Dress is [hh]Rica, wedges are Bowtique Breeze, also L$99 (FP).

And yes Laika, I did say I wouldn't spend anything until the end of August...…..Pfft!  😛

Admiring at all of you, in your radiant beauty, feels like I'm the only one still left with an avi looking like it was made in 2004. 😛 Really will need to do some massive shopping, ere long. :)

I have not posted anything for a while because I was told by a lovely (not) person that my pics were to quote '*****' so I deleted my flickr because he left so many nasty RL and sl comments so not sure about anything right now.

You have all been so supportive will have to think again I guess. Hugs

   That's terrible, and untrue.

   I followed you on Flickr, and I've seen your shots here, and I think your shots were good. I don't consider myself a photo expert (there's always new things to learn and improve!), but I can objectively say that your photos were far above 'average' in SL Flickerite standards.

   Words can be hurtful, and it's entirely up to you to decide how you wish to deal with criticism or, as in this case, outright bullsh*t. But I'm sure I speak for more than just myself when I say that your photos are enjoyable and most welcome here, and that they will be missed if you decide against posting. The most important thing is that you have fun and enjoy what you do, whether you wish to share it or not.

Mixed up subjective and objective again!

I am so sorry Laika. I always admire your pictures and hope you don’t let one nasty jerk stop you from doing something you enjoy. The anonymity of the internet really allows people to be hateful cretins, unfortunately.

Also, it is not about the best pictures! It’s about creativity and expression. Don’t let them get you down girl!

Wut?! Not sure whappened with that dou*he, but I'll gladly pass on what my dad told me when I was little:

"Never let anyone push you into a spot you don't want to be in, or out of a place you do wish to be in."

If you feel like showing your pics, you should always feel unencumbered to do so! Don't give 'em that much power over you. And I'm sure we'll love your photos! 🤗

I'm really sorry to hear this happened to you. :( And I know what it's like to let someone 'get' to you; but if Orwar is even half-way right about your work, then I'd say all his nastiness says more about him than it does about you.

And if you still feel up to it, I'd welcome your work!
