The Ruins of Deepmarsh


Sometimes all I want to do, when logging into Second Life, is go to a pretty place and take pictures. Just wandering about or sit somewhere and look around, listening to some good music and enjoy the scenery. That is what I did tonight. Real life has been hectic all week and in The Ruins…
