La Digue du Braek, by Serene Footman (known from his popular sim Furillen) and Jade Koltai, is the Second Life version – or interpretation – of a real life location in Dunkerque, France.

La Digue du Braek - I - A Blogpost A road, 7 kilometers long, with a beach on one side and heavy industries on the other side, a wonderful landscape if you need a break from autumn and snow sims!

La Digue du Braek - II - A Blogpost

I’ve been to Dunkerque when I was a little Caity, and I am not sure if I have seen this Digue in real life, or at least I have no recollection of it. So I looked it up on Google Maps, to find out this Second Life location indeed looks similar!

Go visit La Dique du Braek It is great for exploring and taking pictures!

SL Blogger Support

It is about time for some updates from the [SL] Blogger Support Team, as we do work behind the scenes to make sure our group is what is should be: a support network to help and guide all SL Bloggers!

To start,  I would like to thank Sunshine (sunshine.zhangsun) so much,  for all the time and efforts she has spend as a very much appreciated team-member. Due to reasons she has decided to step down and leave the Support Team, but she will surely stay as a group member and as such it is not a real goodbye! Big hugs to her!

Resting Resting by Amy Beebe

As the group is still growing, we needed to fill in the gap left by Sunshine and Katya, so I am happy to announce that we found two new team-members: Lainey Thorne and Sasy Scarborough. I am sure you will join me in…

A few weeks ago I got an invitation from Inara Pey, who invited me to display my work at Holly Kai Park – for their monthly exhibition ‘Art at the Park‘.
I was hesitant at first, it is no secret I am not a fan of SL photo-works being displayed Inworld. I simply do not see the point of going inworld to a Gallery and painfully zoom in on framed pics, while it looks so much better on my monitor in Flickr.

The other thing is, I do not consider myself an SL Artist. I am a snapshotter and my pics on Flickr and my blog are just me documenting my Second Life. I do not have Photoshop, but for fun,  I like to use filters in some free browser based software like PicMonkey.

I’ve given Inara’s invitation some thought, and decided to give it a go. I had time, and it turned out to be fun to work on new pics including a theme and all, specially for Art at the Park.

I want to thank my good friends who were willing to pose with me for this exhibition , and their patience, many big hugs to Brad, Huckleberry, JC, Tem, Gabriel and Nearly!

Soon....

In my display at Art at the Park, I’ve rezzed the pose (by Del May)  I have used and put it in front of a backdrop similar to the windlight used in my portraits: feel free to go and pose with a friend, as you are…:)

What a lovely surprise, Huckleberry Hax used some of my photos in his blogpost about his ‘Nancy Redgrave Building‘ ! A true 70s office, wonderful for photoshoots or just sitting and contemplating the good old times!

What the Huck?

A while back I posted about my new, 23 prim, six floor building that I’d put on sale on the Marketplace.  I wasn’t really expecting it to sell – especially seeing as how it isn’t mesh – but then again it was a labour of love for me and I did price it at only $L49. So it turns out I have sold a few copies.

I was especially delighted to see recently these wonderful photos above and below of my build from Amona Savira on Flickr. Amona has captured the ‘open spaceness’ of my building in these images much better than any attempt of my own. It was a real treat to come across them.

I’ve placed a customised version of the building over my own land as the newest version of my ‘Nancy Redgrave Building‘.  I haven’t blogged properly about this yet because the interior…

“Always remember, it’s simply not an adventure worth telling if there aren’t any dragons.” ~J.R.R Tolkien

From Here On There be Dragons is an art installation, currently on display at Split Screen, by Alpha Auer.
A modern building in the sky, guarded by amazing golden Dragons. The mythological creatures stand on a floor which is textured with  a leaf from Abraham Ortelius’s “Theatrum Orbis Terrarum,” a Renaissance map of the world – as to visualise how renaissance and medieval map makers used to draw sea-creatures and dragons on maps of unknown territories (or the edge of the world, of course).

Whether you love old world-maps or Dragons, or both!, the exhibition is certainly worth a visit, the Dragons (as far as I could see they are created by Jade Leaf Studio’s Ayuki) are wonderfully detailed and stunning!

Today I explored Knightfall, for SL Blogger Support, a wonderful blogger- and photographer friendly place!

SL Blogger Support

It has been too long since I’ve posted about a blogger- and photographer friendly location, but that does not mean there are none! On the contrary, new locations still pop up and in this time of year lots of other locations are changing to the new season – making them all new again.

In this post I will feature a wonderful, medieval park: Knightfall. A lovely decorated park, with castles and bridges, rivers and forests in both lush green and a snowed mountain top.

Location in the Spotlight Knightfall - II I did not have the time to speak to the creators and decorators, but I was given a note by Cyrus Knight, with the following:

‘From the creators of Ironwood Hills comes Knightfall, an immersive medieval adventure park! Where you step out of one world and into another. Expansive landscapes, rivers, wooded paths where you can ride horses, a snow-capped mountain to ascend (don’t fall), a…

Yesterday I explored a new, to me, place: Yasminia. I had seen so many wonderful pictures on Flickr lately, all shot there –  so naturally I was excited to go see it for myself.

Yasminia - A Blogpost - I

Yasminia is a truly lovely, rural location. Not too much autumn, but a bit of green too and no snow yet! Some horses on a field, a farmhouse and lots of water surrounding it. A great place for walking around and admire the scenery; do not forget to bring your camera!

Yasminia - A Blogpost - II

Enjoy!
