Sometimes They Rise

AM Radio’s latest build — Sometimes They Rise — reveals itself with trademark quietness, compelling visitors to not only enter but to also create a visual story.

The build is simple and lovely.  It harkons to the nearness of autumn, one of my favorite seasons (along with spring).  And yet, the story or feeling that this build invoked for me was less the English Riding Club and more a sense of another world.

I have no doubt that what was really speaking to me was the vast mystery in the austere simplicity of the build.  Windlight presets really brought that mystery forth, in very bold colors and washes of light (above photo) and as equally in the more subdued, darker hues in the photos that follow:

It’s fascinating when not only the fantastic creations exist in SL…and it’s so wonderful that they do.  But it’s equally fascinating when such mystery is presented by creations that might seem every day or common place or decidedly FL, most particularly as pertains to nature.  Nature – down to the shape of a leaf or a blade of grass — certainly is mysterious and miraculous in all worlds.   “Sometimes They Rise” presents these “every day” visual feasts on a platter.

  1. Looks like the virtual world emulated the nature and making it look better. The sorrow yet peaceful kind of feeling…the pictures are indeed fascinating.
