I went back to the beautiful sim West of the Rain today to take some pictures for their Flickr photography challenge which runs until September 22nd 2016. On that date three winners will be selected and announced on September 22. Prizes will be $10,000L for first prize, $5,000L for second, and $2,500L for third. The exact entry requirements can be found on their web page here.
A lazy afternoon for one. Black coffee and a madeleine please. Time to sit and watch the world go by.

The chill of autumn will soon be upon us, but there is a last bloom of roses fading in the dimming warmth. Still leaving a faint scent on the breeze as I sit in my chair, rocking gently, and doze and dream.
In a spare moment it is fun to look through the Destinations tab and see what sims are hot right now or what featured events. This is how I spotted The Library which is an art installation by Cica Ghost. I think most people will understand how small you feel as you wander around through the oversized piles of books.
One of our favourite places to dance the night away recently is the new to grid club Breck’s which had it’s grand opening on 20th August 2016. The club is the dreamchild of well-known Second Life DJ BreckQuinn and she and her associate owners have created a beautifully designed Club with a selection of excellent DJ’s offering a mix of The Blues, Jazz, Romance and Rock at both casual and formal sets.
Perhaps slightly unusually, I play Second Life with my real life husband and we are monogomously partnered in the game as well as married in real life.
One of the great pleasures of Second Life to me is dressing my avatar which really allows me to bring out my love of fashion which has been something I have been interested in since childhood. One of the interesting off-shoots of this though is not only it resparked my creativity in taking photographs – which I used to do to a high standard in real life – but it has enabled me to find some interesting places for my avatar to model that I may have not found otherwise.
