I’m a little late to the party with this weeks blog meme, but even without a challenge I’ll always jump on the chance to share pretty shots.  Strawberry Singh‘s blog challenge for this week is to share some of our favorite places in SL, so I began looking through my landmarks and thinking about the places I like to visit. This quickly turned into me being nostalgic, and a little sad when I tried to look up a landmark on the map and found that it was no longer on the grid. Like many people I was in love with all of the sims that AM Radio designed, and I’m delighted to know that The Far Away is still on the grid, I will definitely be revisiting it.

Here are the instructions if you’d like to join in:

Meme Instructions: Share 1 to 5 of your favorite places on the grid. I feel like exploring and discovering new places. Share places you think everyone should visit and also tell us why they are your favorites. Don’t forget to leave a link to your post in the comments (on the original post here)!

I was tempted to dig into my old images and find some of my favorites, but instead (with one exception) I thought I’d take a fresh look at some of the places I’ve always enjoyed  I typically edit pics because I like to play with color or add filters,  but I left all of these untouched except for cropping (again, with one exception) just to see how things would turn out using only windlight settings. These are in no particular order.


Calas Galadhon

Of course everyone knows about these sims, but I have to mention them anyway. I love all of Calas Galadhon.  I love to wander around, and look for interesting camera angles, and just sit sometimes and imagine that I’m really in this lovely setting. This pic was in Dimril Dale, and I think (it’s a couple years old so I’m not totally sure) that I used the viewer depth of field and the only extra processing was the vignetting (and probably cropping.)  This is one of my favorite images out of the SL pics I’ve taken over the years.  I am really looking forward to seeing the sims open back up in September, this is one of the places that the hub and I have had a lot of fun exploring.

Meme and My Inventory

This week the Strawberry Singh blog meme for Monday is short and easy, it’s about our inventory.  I always think mine is out of control, but I have a feeling it’s really not too bad. I recently went through and deleted all of the aging demos I’d been holding on to forever, which dropped it down by a couple thousand items. I think that was safe, pretty sure at this point I’m not going to go back through demo hair from 2008 and dash off to see if it’s still available for sale… Continue reading »

Weekly meme time has come again and this week Strawberry Singh is curious about our opinions on astrology. While  I’m not very knowledgeable about any zodiac symbolism beyond my own sign I do enjoy reading about it and I can never resist the blog memes. I did look around a bit to see if I could find something astrology related in my inventory for pics, but I don’t have anything at all, so I just thought I’d lay under the stars and look for signs.  🙂 Continue reading »

Joining the gazillion other items I wish I had in my real life inventory: the Little Haven camper from What Next that I found at the Home Show last month. We’ve always wanted a tiny little camper to take out on the weekends, and this is so darn cute. It would be perfect parked in our RL driveway. Continue reading »
