Contact Sheet 5

In this round of Contact Sheet, I’ve dug to find more names than just the usual cast of regulars I’ve been featuring. Of course, they may now join the usual cast of regulars (grin)…. In any case, four new photographers for your consideration:


First up, a French avatar (or should that be a “Frenchavatar,” along with “Frenchman” and “-woman”?) named Faustine Pau. The two that I’ve chosen for the column are a landscape, “sky of glory,” and a full portrait of Faustine dressed as La Pompadour, in one of the nicest period French-court gowns I’ve seen yet. Faustine doesn’t have gobs of photos up yet (188 as of publishing), but give her time; her profile says that she enjoys SL photography. Several other of her portfolio show promise.


Galatea Zabelin is from some Spanish-speaking country; this much I can say. (If you read this, Señorita, please let us know which country!) Two portraits show up here today: “Carnivale,” of Gala in a mask (there is also a B&W version in her stream); and the mysterious “JC Luna.”


For our final two, Zoe Zeffirelli presents “Conflicts in Time,” which leaves you worried about what the consequences of landing in the other side of the hourglass will be like; and, possibly the best of the group, “Night” by LayDeeBird Chastity, with a regal bearing that I just had to compliment when I stumbled across this in one of my groups.

Thanks to all four photographers!
