Kiss’s Prelude   Leave a comment

I believe if I should die,
And you should kiss my eyelids when I lie
Cold, dead, and dumb to all the world contains,
The folded orbs would open at thy breath,
And, from its exile in the isles of death,
Life would come gladly back along my veins.

— From Creed, by Mary Ashley Townsend

I’m doing a little experimentation with some photos I have in accumulation.  I like the impressionist brush effect here, which took some experimentation with the filter in Paint Shop Pro to achieve.

9th Annual Oscar Fashion Photo Contest — And the Winners Are….   Leave a comment

The field shook itself out fairly rapidly for this year’s Oscar Fashion Photo Contest.  As ever, thank you to all the entrants, and I hope you enjoyed the opportunity to show off your red-carpet chops.

The main difficulty this year was between First and Second Places.  It could easily have gone the other way, and almost did.  A fresh evaluation gave this order, however; and I’m pleased to welcome a new First Place winner this year.

So, with further non-ado, here’s this year’s placers ….

As our shuttle approached the spacedock, Jem glanced to her right and said to me, “Why the devil did the traffic computer assign us to land up here?  It doesn’t look that busy to me; I only see that green shuttle down there, and there was almost nothing around the main station pad.”

I shrugged briefly, focused on feathering the thruster controls.  Takeoffs are nothing, Real Life or Second Life; it’s always the landings that kill you ….  “You take no chances in space. Traffic Control must have spotted something out there, so it shifted us to this dock.  Fear not, Jemmy; the ways of the traffic computer are simply mysterious, and beyond mortal ken.  Sometimes they’re beyond the ken of the traffic computer, too.”

Jem replies to my humor on the second page.

Hallowe’en 2017 — The New Refloi   Leave a comment

Notice: mature theme and photos, NSFW.

The woman nodded at the image in the holophone’s field and said, “Good evening, umasi; I am En’kele, the refloi being sent to you tonight by the hotel service. I should arrive at your apartment in perhaps 10 minutes.”
