I have started a group called Wandering Photographers. We go to a different location every Monday to photograph landscapes. We share suggestions of good shots and help each other to expand our photography skills. We also have a clubhouse where members can display their work. Our newsletter blog is wanderingphotographers.wordpress.com

This week we will be going to Virtual Africa. Join us!

Thorn Witrial

We had a treasure hunt at our Golden Masquerade water garden/romance destination and it attracted 30 hunters! It was loads of fun and people we had never met before wandered through our creation, which made my partner and I very happy.

Leondra

Hamlet, thanks for visiting and for the frequent chances for shameless plugs in NWN :)

Uccello Poultry

An on-going project at the Isle of Lesbos is a "Club On Demand" concept that allows our Event Staff to rez custom-made clubs with a variety of themes. Right now I'm working on an an 'abandoned factory' design decorated as if ravers have invaded. One of my favorite clubs is The Snowglobe, just like the name sounds with a wintery scene to play in. Next up: A Egyptian Pyramid (I think).

I'm in the hospital, right now, with my (RL and SL) partner who had some complications after emergency brain surgery. I've been here for a couple of weeks with a lot of time on my hands and free WiFi, so I've done a few hunts and spent a bunch of time organizing inventory.

In my travels, I came across a new group called Wear Gray for a Day, founded by Sanura Snowpaw, whose cousin died from a brain tumor on August 13th. Sanura made a free t-shirt in an effort to raise awareness about brain cancer, and designers began contacting her, offering items made in the signature gray as fundraisers.

I immediately joined the group and IMed Sanura to volunteer. It is the first thing I've volunteered for in SL.

For more information about this fundraiser, check out the blog Wear Gray for a Day.

Wow, Doreen, thanks for sharing that, hope your partner gets better.

Rusalka Writer

Well, now I'm going to go out and buy a bunch of gray clothing...

I'm also looking at the future of my sculpty business, with the advent of mesh upload on the horizon. So I have upgraded my alt and will be starting another business with her soon. And little by little I shall also learn another business with my main avi. Gotta be ready for anything!

Leondra:
The photoshoot is held all day Monday. Members will be there throughout the day. You can join the group by finding it in search. Or contact me inworld for an invite. Hope to see you!

What are U Richmond and me up to lately? Our team is building a simulation of Poe's House of Usher (with NPC actors). Only about 5 students in my first-year writing course have freaked out with the mention of SL and dropped the class (those ever cautious and pragmatic Millennials!). Other brave souls remain, and they'll beta-test the simulation for another course that will use it next term (and beyond).

Some dispatches on building and content (with a few teaser pics):

It's still too early to give more details or share photos, but I recently bought a full region with 4 friends of mine, and we're building all kinds of funny stuff there.

Also, we gave our region the best name ever, but it's still seeekret!

I already started experimenting with my Shadows+Projected Textures viewer...
