This fall, I made a decision that I would spend more time in SL. I wanted to explore, practice my photography, and just generally have fun. However, given my almost year-long hiatus from SL, I’m finding it hard to work the time for it back into my life.
Once I wasn’t spending time daily in SL, that time of course got filled up with other things – RL things. And it’s been difficult to carve out that time in SL again, much as I want to, because things in RL take precedence.
Once school started back up, I thought I would have more free time, but I’m discovering I have less. I haven’t taken on any extra commitments, so I’m hard-pressed to explain why my free time is suddenly at such a premium.
In any case, I do want to spend more time in SL, so I’m going to have to figure out how to do that. I did manage to spend a little time exploring last week, visiting some sims that I discovered via Flickr.
It’s funny how some sims make me want to take a photo of everything, and other sims I find myself searching for something to take a photo of. Different strokes for different folks, I guess.
So although I didn’t get a lot of photographs of some sims, they are still worth visiting. VUK was one such sim – I did take some photos, but I’m still experimenting with my photography and I ended up with only one photo I felt was worth sharing.
I loved the windlight on this sim – grey and hazy, but it fit the landscape very well.
I also spent some time exploring Author’s Point, but I was rushed and I only took one photo. When I came back to look at them for editing – ugh. I was rushing and it clearly showed. However, the sim is definitely still worth exploring, so head on over and check it out for yourself.
