Battle of the Bulge


Tonight I was in the mood for some good old fashioned exploring, so I pulled up the weekly ‘Highlights of the Destination Guide‘ and off I went. After a few rather disappointing locations – I ended up in the Battle of the Bulge. I kid you not. Of course I looked it up and it…

The Black Tulip Camera HUD


Yes, that is right. I am going to tell something about a product! And only because I am very excited about it and think every Second Life Photographer will want to have it! The Black Tulip Camera HUD. I have never used a camera HUD in SL before, as I just fiddle along and accepted…

The Rains of Castamere


A few days ago I explored a new sim, designed and decorated by Arol Lightfoot : The Rains of Castamere. A wonderful fantasy world, meant for photographers (as the landinformation states) and you are invited to add your photos to the dedicated Flickr-group!

The Second Life Movie Poster Challenge 2016


Berry’s meme for this week is all about Movie Posters, a theme she had done last year (which I don’t think I participated in) and a very cool one to do! Of course I want to show off that I am a fan of really intelligent, difficult,  movies. Ya know Oscar material and nothing less….so…

Days of O


Even an experienced, ahem, explorer like me makes the occasional mistake – but you have to live and learn, right? It started this weekend when I read a plurk from Froukje, who was excited about a new (adult) sim, named Days of O. Naturally I went to see it, if only to get a LM…

Coobs and Caity – The Dragon Whisperers


It was a warm, slow, summer evening and Coobs and Caity went for a nice walk in a quiet and peaceful Vineyard, on a sim far away. They chatted and occasionally had some silent moments, enjoying the environment and letting the busy day behind them. Coobs suddenly stopped. ‘I hear something’ he whispered  ‘be quiet!’, …

And so, I was a real model for an hour…


One of the things I have had on my wishlist in Second Life, was to have my portrait made by Skip Staheli. I’ve admired his work for ages and always enjoy his photo’s on Flickr. Sure I can do my own pics, but I just wanted one of those beautiful portraits that Skip creates. Because…

World Goth Fair, the gates are open…


…and the bats have been released. So one can read on the official World Goth Fair 2015 website, on which you will also find a map and vendor-list for the shoppers. Yes, I like to shop too, but the main reason I always love to go to the World Goth Fair is the build and…
