What is Reality?   Leave a comment

What is reality?
Is it the cool embrace of winters chilling winds?
Or is it the tingle you get while walking in the sun on a summer’s afternoon?

This photo by Coqueta Georgia captures a moment of action wonderfully; the archer defends herself despite a moment of surprise, getting an arrow off just seconds before the swordsman gets within his own range.  Whether or not the shot is successful is up to you to decide….

Our Lady of the Bloomenveldt   Leave a comment

Jem sent me some photos she’d squeezed in recently, but didn’t have the chance to write up.  As it happened, I’d recently re-read Norman Spinrad’s Child of Fortune, which I recommend to you at some point; and the size of some of the flowers in LEA15’s Gardens By the Bay reminded me of that book.  If you don’t get the context of the quotations, I suggest you buy the book.  It is fun, it is erotic, and it will make you think about what our society could be like if we tried out the social philosophy of Sunshine’s Second Starfaring Age.

Tea Time in Dublin   Leave a comment

It’s that time of year again, when all the world begins turning green — and I’m not talking about how close spring is to officially starting.  Tomorrow is St. Patrick’s Day; and, as you have one red-haired cailín on hand here with a severe case of Celtophilia, and another lass willing to go along with her — well, here we are again.  We don’t quite have shamrocks tucked behind our ears, and we won’t be swilling green-dyed beer anytime soon, Second Life  or Real Life.  (Green beer’s an Americanism, anyways, and barbarous at the best of times.)  That doesn’t mean we can’t have some fun with green stylin’.

8th Annual Oscar Fashion Photo Contest — And the winners are….   Leave a comment

Here they come, sashaying down the red carpet — this years placing photos for the Oscar Fashion Photo Contest!  The potential pool was disappointing this year in terms of size — the smallest slate of entries in the eight years of the OFPC — but the winners are deserving of their selection, and of the prize money (grin).  So, with further non-ado, here are our choices for this year.
