Sigh.  I've been mulling over this a while.  Not quite sure what to do with it.  Not quite sure what decisions to make.  Not quite sure what directions to take.  All the while, indecision makes you stuck in limbo.

That's normally how I kill things.  Limbo.  Death by inaction.  Death by inability to start because you can see where you want it to go, and it's a lot of work and effort to get there.  Achieving that takes time and patience (and skill).  And that makes goals seem like they're far away.  So you tuck it away in the corner of your mind and let it brew.

You also don't really let anyone else in on the plan because, well, that requires commitment and expectations and goals and results.

But, that's why I'm here in this account right?  My normal self would be mired in self doubt, expectations, and detail overload and cant really do things because, well, it may just not fit in with what I should be doing.

So, let me try something new.  I have goals.  Those I may still hide a little up my sleeves, but I need to begin somewhere.  Something needs to get started.  Somehow it needs to get going.

I just need to remember, everything has a beginning, even if it's just a placeholder:

The details are absolutely beautiful.  There's something nice about rich feeling wood.

Which is... better?  Worse?  Let's go with "better".

And examples please so we can all judge your tastes.

Inspired from +Bunny Evans' comment on +Albert Nakano's post on something completely unrelated: https://plus.google.com/u/0/+AlbertNakano/posts/ZxcHbGiLpq4

#figurefridayfavorite  : +Grishnàkh Garuda's Hirasawa Yui (Open Challenge).

Sometimes the lighting just completes the photo.  A little light flood in the corner and just the right set of colors and the coldness of the environment contrasts nicely with Yui's dress.

Thanks for sharing!

#figurefriday  : Horo (Open Challenge).

I don't think I posted this one of Horo directly so I may as well use it for the open challenge.  I'm not sure what topic to file it under other than perhaps underexposed lighting.  Or is that over exposed?

Some songs I think translate well into Japanese.  Well, at least melody wise, words always feel a little different.

Overlighting works so well when you have the right figure and know how to apply it.

#figurefridaychallenge  : Nine.

Nine should offer a lot of options for creativity.  It's a good number to play with and getting high enough that collections start to feel meaningless at that number.  So go forth and find your focus.  Figure out what Nine means to you and your figures.

(Nine lives would be the catch for this one)

Get creative, have fun, and tag it #figurefridaychallenge !

I'll be posting mostly about animemanga or figures.  There may be some deviations from that from time to time, but those will be the primary things I'll be posting about.

I circle many, but I usually follow just a handful of folks who post good content (as shown in my "People" section).  The others are in muted topic circles that I frequent once in a while to see what's new.

So if I don't happen to see a post you made that you think would interest me, feel free to mention me :).

Quick Links:

Communities:
I'm trying out a few communities to help gather my interests into one spot.  Feel free to join and contribute to them!

Figure Friday (weekly): #figurefriday
Join us every Friday to share your photos of your figures!  Just upload your pictures and share them to the Figure Photography community and/or tag with #figurefriday:

Figure Friday Challenge (weekly): #figurefridaychallenge
A weekly challenge to offer some themes to take pictures around.  Challenges like silhouettes, shadows, footwear, weapons and so on (notifications available here, suggestions gathered via the #figurefridaychallengerequest tag).

Be creative and have fun!

Figure Photos (any time): #figurephotos
This is a tag we're encouraging people to use whenever they post pictures of their figures on Google+.  It should help us find each other and create a little community of figure photographers.

Some of my contributions:

Hashtags:
These are some of the hashtags I like to take part in.  Feel free to join in and participate!

Favorite Posts:
I don't keep a blog (yet?) so this is usually where I dump stuff.  If you want to get a feel for who I am, some of these will probably do the trick.

Topics:
Interpretations and Reviews:

Best Anime For#bestanimefor
Just a collection asking folks to name some interesting anime that fits the posted topic.

If I enjoyed...#sharethejoy
A poor man's recommendation engine to solicit some similar anime from the community.  Perhaps you'll find them interesting to.  So, if you enjoyed:

Exemplary Anime Archetype: #exemplaryanimearchetype
Share with us your considerations for various exemplary archetypes.

Share it Forward: #shareitforward
A small experiment in creating shares and ripples.  The concept is to try to get people to reshare and add their own commentary to a post.  Hopefully the reshare will result in more people seeing the content and more people willing to share.  An social experiment of sorts.  Here's the list of current topics, feel free to share any one of them as you like.
