Love Thursdays!

Strawberry Singh plurked this today, and honestly, it couldn't have come at a better time for me because I woke up in one baaaaad mood. Or was woken up, I should say. The phone just kept ringing with one call after another this morning. Ok, only 3, but that's 3 too many when I'm trying to sleep. Plus it's all wet and nasty here, and it's giving me a monster headache. So needless to say, I've been in one hell of a mood for the past few hours.

This kind of lifted my spirits, though!

So there's been a lot of negativity around here lately and it's makin' me feel kinda yucky. Therefore I'm gonna start this up on flickr and plurk just to remind me of everything I have to be thankful for in my SL and RL.

About 2 to 3 years ago I used to read a blog (can't remember it now) and every Thursday she used to post a picture of something that she loved in her life and talk about it a little bit. After a while, hundreds of other bloggers started doing the same every thursday and used to link from her comments. It was so uplifting and wonderful. Sometimes they posted pics of their loved ones, food, articles of clothing. It was amazing.

... I'd like to encourage everyone to take a pic of something they love, can be your favorite shoes, your fav sim, your fav person, etc.... SL or RL, just do it! Lets get some love on our streams.

I am so down with bringing some much needed positive energy to my life right now, I had to jump on this bandwagon.

So today, what do I love?

I love windlight!!!

I do, seriously! I love that with windlight, you don't need nasty old facelights washing things out. I love that if you play around enough with it, you can make the most amazing photos. I love that it can make your SL just so much more beautiful. I also love that so many people make awesome windlight presets! I mean, have you downloaded Torley Linden's amazing pack of presets? Or Caliah Lyon's preset to make your skin look gorgeous? Or the Silent Hill preset [I'm sorry, I don't know who made it!] that makes your SL suddenly very eerie? It's fabulous!

So thank you, Lindens who work on windlight & people who make the presets, for making my SL just so much better. :)

After all, I'm not an artist, and would never have been able to get this shot without it. No photoshopping except a little liquify on my torso. :)

Ocean love

Go on, do your own Love Thursday post! It can be ANYTHING or ANYONE that you love that makes you happy!! I feel my bad mood going away already!

That is amazing. I love windlight too, can't live without it and I love SL water. My pictures would be nothing without windlight. Thank you so much for doing this. <3

A beautiful shot, Alicia. I think you've inspired me to investigate Windlight some more. Thank you.

I am really glad you posted this as I still am not a fan of Windlight. I am downloading presets and doing Caliah's manually (the one she has a note card about in MUSE does not have a download-able preset that I can find). If they at least help me take pics better it will be worth it. THANK YOU!
