Finnish hare stamp


Every time I go out on a photography mission in SL, I wind up loving every minute of it. ^_^ There's just something about the challenge of finding just the right places, the angles, the lighting.. so many possibilities, a few of which will strike me just the right way, once I've zoomed in a little, around a bit, focus on a different part of the scene, adjusted the lighting.. so many possibilities, so many ways to mess up, and so much wonder to be found. As in life in general, ne?

And if you've got a couple minutes spare for a good SL music video, try this out: I Will Find You. Broodily romantic, befitting the Clannad soundtrack, with cloudy skies and sheep over the hillside, it's a simple tale, elegantly portrayed.

Michael Jackson dead

I'm not given to reporting on celebrity deaths, but, that's what TMZ is saying: "Michael suffered a cardiac arrest earlier this afternoon at his Holmby Hills home and paramedics were unable to revive him. We're told when paramedics arrived Jackson had no pulse and they never got a pulse back." Other sites haven't yet confirmed his demise, only that he was found not breathing - and that's not a survivable condition for more than a few minutes at best.

*sigh* A great talent, and responsible for some truly classic music videos, notably Thriller, and one of the first, and still amongst the best, uses of morphing, in Black Or White.

Edit: confirmation now appears to be in progress, eg: MSNBC, USA Today, CBS.
