A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to visit The Gates of Melancholy. According to the land information, the sim is inspired by the life and work of famous American painter Andrew Wyeth.
I’d seen pictures of the sim taken by several different SL photographers, so I was curious to head over and see it for myself. I wasn’t disappointed.
There are tons of areas to explore and the windlight is simply amazing. Sometimes I will find myself playing around with the windlight on sims to get different effects for my pics. But I loved the windlight on this sim. 😀
I think one of the reasons the sim is so appealing to me is that it reminds me of 1) home, and 2) simpler times. No reminders of things that are ubiquitous today – cell phones, TVs, cars, etc. Just peace and quiet.
I would love to live somewhere like this – near the shore, where I could listen to the waves crash on the beach, but high enough to be protected from most storms, sheltered by huge old trees.
I’ve never lived near the water, so I am fascinated by places like this. Being that close to so much water seems like it would be amazing. Of course, I’m sure I wouldn’t appreciate the storms and hurricanes, but it’d be worth it, right? 😛
The sim is absolutely gorgeous, so hop on over and check it out.
