After seeing so many lovely pictures of the sim H22O done by Squonk Levenque and Miuccia Klaar, I had to go see it for myself.
I arrived at the landing point, and in order to get down to the main sim I used a drain pipe right by a tree. I landed inside of a lighthouse and took a look around inside, which I highly recommend you do before venturing outside. Once I was outside, I turned my volume on, something I rarely do in SL, and let the sound of rain and thunder wash over me. The sim has some of the best elements for me personally. It is hauntingly beautiful, and set up for a variety of blogger and photographer needs.
Starfall’s Twilights Edge has everything I love in a sim. The land is an open water sim that is so beautifully done, you could spend quite a bit of your time just taking it all in. You can then take a dive underwater to an ethereal place full of flora and fauna. To get to the underwater portion, all you need to do it look for the fish right beside the welcome board, and descend into the depths. There are also two more spaces in the sky, the first is The Whales Song Sphere, a dream like area. The second is called Midnight Orchid, a room that is a bit dark and sensual. Please make sure to click on the welcome sign for a notecard for all information on the sim.
Inez Pennell and Cinderr Resident did a gorgeous job designing the sim and the owner is Aquaglo. It is perfect for bloggers wanting that special shot or to use an underwater scene, people that love to take pictures of sims, or for people to just go and take in.
This morning I finally took a trip to Ivy Glad, now that I have some time to sit down and blog (phew! RL has been hectic!).
Ivy Glad is an open water sim with a lot of interesting aspects to it. You can get everything there, from cute to a bit haunting, overgrown forest around a building, a ship and more. I really like the way it is all put together. It is perfect for bloggers, as there are many scenes, and great for people that want to take pictures of sims. You can also just go there to take it all in.
I haven’t been able to do much in the way of blogging lately, but I’m back at it now, and what better way to come back than to take a visit to the beautiful Binemist. It is an open water sim with many areas to explore. The creator of the sim had hoped for it to have a calming effect, and a place to showcase art that they have picked up along the way, and they have done a wonderful job. There are many different area’s to explore, and many that would suit a bloggers needs, or people that love to take artistic pictures of sims.
It is also a great place to hang out and to just let it wash over you. The Buddha in the first picture even has a click to dance option.
I took the time today to revisit Annwn Willows since it has been redone, and it is beautiful. Joanna Corith did a wonderful job of putting together the partially underwater, partially not sim. It is a fantastic place to take more artistic pictures for your blog, and you can also take loved ones or friends to just go and relax. There is a note card that you get when you land, please take the time to read the very simple rules.
MetaLES is a sim that is purely to promote art and creators in Second Life. Every two months, an artist is able to put up an installation. The current one is stunningly beautiful, and is called Sleepy Snail. It is done by Rebeca Bashly. I thoroughly enjoyed taking pictures there, and encourage others to go take a look with their loved ones or friends, or just to soak it in on their own.
