Photographing the Seychelles - Blue Hour on La Digue

As beautiful as this photograph is, the accompanying vlog may be the real treasure in this post. The video is skillfully edited, with breathtaking drone footage woven alongside @mibreit-photo's informative discussion of location scouting and shot planning. There is a soothing, gentle quality to Michael's voice and combined with the stunning landscape this makes for a very relaxing watch:

Ever since I traveled to the Seychelles back in 2012 I wanted to come back because I had such a fantastic time there. Well, finally I visited those beautiful islands again and this time I also recorded some vlogs along with my photography. This here is the first vlog of a series of at least six videos that I'll post here in the coming weeks. So if you don't want to miss it, make sure to follow me ;-)

Omm Sety- The Reincarnation of a Priestess of Isis

This is either one of the most romantic stories I have ever heard, or one of the creepiest, or both! The story of Omm Sety, AKA Dorothy Eady, is fascinating enough that I don't want to ruin any surprises. @carrieallen has condensed her historical research into a superb short script. She provides smooth voiceovers on top of a very well edited video only 7:26 long that will instantly suck you in:

Carrie's also just began her very own LIVE RADIO PODCAST on the STEEMSTAR NETWORK. It runs Tuesday 12 AM UTC in Discord, and with live video feed on the SteemStar Network , Twitch, and Youtube. Join her for Mission Control Mondays! It's outta this world!

POORKIDS WORLD: An Extended Guide on Lyricism and the Process of Making a Track + NEW SONG: demonboy [ghost ship] (prod. Dream!)

Image used with permission from @poorkidbeats

Raw creativity with absolutely zero pretensions is on display here. @poorkidbeats is rightfully proud of his new song and gives us a fantastic discussion of his inspirations and his producing and songwriting techniques. This is rough around the edges and charged with an undeniable energy. The track itself combines an ethereal, ghostly beat with intricate rap lyrics that @poorkidbeats delivers with unusual rhythmic twists. demonboy [ghost ship] is actually a very descriptive name for the journey this song will take you on. Enjoy:

Us Steemians we are innovators. We strive to go places where normal artists, musicians, thinkers and activists would never think to go. We're part of a culture...small and reserved but with loud voices.

We're not competing for followers, we're competing with our mental barriers to improve our hobbies, our jobs, our talents, our work, our livelihoods and most importantly our friendships.

Virtual Reality: Where It Began, By Lily Campbell, Award Nominated VR Director/Developer (YanksVR)

Image used with permission from @lilycampbell

A pioneer in the emerging field of virtual reality, @lilycampbell is a virtual reality developer, director and producer. This post is not about the latest breakthroughs in VR, however, instead looking back to its roots through an exploration of the history of stereoscopic images. Lily's background in VR gives her a great perspective on the topic, resulting in a very well written, informative and engaging piece:

I am a director, producer, photographer, VR developer, speaker, ethical and feminist erotica creator. I enjoy delving into how we and the world work, being creative and authentic, and keeping a good moral compass. I work with tech and with emotions. My hope is to use Steemit as a platform of education, expression, creativity, journalism, and inspiration for myself and others.

This one is too powerful to mess with. I will let @art-mess take it away:

I woke up yesterday and started writing this song about a homeless veteran whose story really hit me right in the feels. I'm not sure why I woke up thinking about him, but I had the overwhelming urge to pick up my guitar and start telling his story.

Something about this song really takes me to another place literally. It feels like my body falls asleep when I play this song. When I stop playing this and open my eyes my entire body tingles all over and I feel much lighter. Definitely feels like a trance state. It was hard not to get choked up while recording this.

Well, I did not succeed in not getting choked up while listening, I can tell you that much. I honestly felt like I was watching @art-mess channel another person, a possessing spirit that vibrated his vocal cords and tugged at his facial muscles and could barely be contained. This is one of the most powerful and emotional musical performances I have ever seen. Oh and by the way, @art-mess is an incredible artist as well! Do check out his blog after you give this a listen:

I have just discovered some treasure again! Thanks to @curie. Sometimes, it's tiring to visit the trending posts if you see the same set of authors everyday (nothing against them) but you definitely shared with us pure fresh and worthy content. Keep up the good work.

Thanks a lot for the inclusion in this showcase!

Very well deserved, I am also so impressed with both the quality of your photography, and your well-edited vlogs. You rock!

Thanks a lot! Next Vlog in the series will be up on Saturday :-)

thanks for my featured curation, impressed by all the other contributions to the curation team. Big up curie for showing some lovely underrated posts. Glad to have you guys hit me up <3


Definitely my pleasure @poorkidbeats, I was super impressed with both the quality and creativity of your rap, and the very interesting accompanying text. Great job! Much love - Carl

Excellent picks. These curations are great. It really gives everyone a chance to branch out from the channels they normally explore. Thank you @carlgnash and everyone with @curie for all your hard work.

Thank you for your support and kind words. I'm glad you enjoyed the music, and I feel blessed to be in your showcase.

Thanks @art-mess! I was really impressed with your performance, I was more familiar with your art posting (which is amazing!) but man you really channeled something here. I agree that it is good to get exposure to types of posting / posters you might not otherwise see, part of what makes me so happy to be part of Curie :)

Much love - Carl

Many thanks to @curie & @carlgnash & @markangeltruman and all the other curie curators who have been in touch and supportive as I begin my journey here on Steemit! Thank you all so much! :)

Thanks @lilycampbell, truly my pleasure! I have a feeling you are just getting started here! Big things ahead :) Much love - Carl

So much love Carl, thank you!

Thank you so much!
Full disclosure: I spent so much time on this I almost just didn't finish. The last couple of hours of editing was a true battle of self. 😏 But I won. 😎

I'm so glad I decided to just do it.

Your sudden support came at the exact right time. Serendipitous, if you will. 😍

Thank you again!

Oh well then yeah, very glad you just did it! It would have been a real shame if this didn't get finished up, it turned out awesome! Happy to hear the Curie Cavalry showed up just in the nick of time :) Much love - Carl

@curie How Can I give content for you ?

Nice your post because I woke up yesterday and started writing this song about a homeless veteran whose story really hit me right in the feels. I'm not sure why I woke up thinking about him, but I had the overwhelming urge to pick up my guitar and start telling his story.
