A lazy afternoon for one. Black coffee and a madeleine please. Time to sit and watch the world go by.

Peony Dreams

Art

Peony 2I have a love and hate relationship with Second Life gachas. Anything I really want I would rather buy outright and get exactly what I want rather than taking a gamble and end up with something I don’t really like or have no use for. However, I do play them occasionally when it’s something I want and I don’t mind which one I come out with. Sometimes from a photography point of view spinning the gacha wheel as it were is actually a great way to trigger some creative inspiration. Having for example the colour of something or the style of hat decided for you can act as something of an artistic catalyst.
