Lost in Translation, again.

~Yoshi-san, I beg of you to give me a moment or two alone. I am contemplating Giri (義理) and the concept of Intensity. I know how important this shoot is to you, I want it to be perfect.


~Yoshi-san, it is no use hovering, I will be ready when I am ready.

~…or kissing my shoulder. (We’ve been there before.)


~For relaxing times, make it Suntory TIME! For relaxing times, make it Suntory TIME!

*spins around*

~InTENsity Yoshi-san! I am ready!

A note on picture size. I have taken to making my images very hi-rez. The shoots are done at 6000 pixels by 3600 pixels, with an anti-aliasing factor of x4. The images are then cropped and processed down to 1000 pixels wide (@72dpi) by whatever length the image has. There are several reasons I do this. The quality of workmanship and craft in many items is such that you don’t really appreciate them unless you go in close. (The red skull ribbon choker for example.) Another reason is that today’s computer LED monitors can display a large image with great fidelity. But to be honest, the main reason is that I am a total image junkie and love to look at large highly detailed computer pictures. G.E.

  8. Ok, I’m going to have to stop visiting Strange Pixels. It does me no good to look at women’s clothes I’ll never buy (being a guy), and the thoughts that go through my head when Grady pulls off a shoot like this are… hmmm… words fail me.


  9. Thank you so much for the lovely comments guys. I am continually in awe of just how good and accomplished so many SL designers are now. Not that they weren’t good in years past, but I have a sense that many have reached really new heights of skill and design savvy.

  10. I am speechless at what I see. I could seriously see you as a fashion designer in the “First life” – But I am certain I am not the first person to say this… 😉
