Day-7-Falls-of-Hope

I’m so mesmerized by the builds this year.  They are always gorgeous, always incredible.  I have no idea how the World Creators sustain their vision so beautifully as they have year after year.   And yet flying around as a DragonFae through the Falls of Hope brought of bit of Fairelands twinkle to my eye.  That is until Big Daddy Dragon cast me into his turquoise orb.  And then I remembered…Hope lives here.  Hope and courage, love and fellowship.  Ever, we face into challenges together.  Ever, we rise together as one.

A couple of photos from the incredible SIM Sapphire Mirror Lake by Haveit Neox.  You *must* see it to fully appreciate Sapphire Mirror Lake.  It is glorious.  So much so, photos fail to reflect its magnificence.  Please.  Go see it.

Neva River

I happened upon a photo in flickr that pointed to a weblog about a sim called Neva River.  It’s been a long time since I’ve explored but all the images of Neva River beckoned.  It’s a lovely, lovely sim that celebrates nature’s quiet depth.  Check out the sim weblog for words from the creator and collaborators themselves.  They describe this build as very personal, and when you’re there, you can’t help but sense that.  From the moment you arrive Neva River greets you with arms wide open.  Take the slurl to Neva River and see what I mean.  Do it soon…the sim has only a few days remaining:  ten whole days starting March 20th 3pm SL time.

Turning the Tides

For the past several days, I’ve been logged pretty heavily into that place called Real Life.  It’s a pretty chaotic place that doesn’t have much in the way of helpful pointers for navigating this thing called Life.  It comes with a wonky user interface that sometimes works beautifully and other times fails miserably. There seems to be an awful lot of interference in communication.  There’s lag for miles all over on these places called highways and in these other places called offices.  And as far as I can tell, we can’t fly here although we are allowed to *believe* that we can fly.  I’m fairly sure Google runs the Real Life platform.  Google or Facebook…so we’ll see how long it lasts.  Many expect it will go belly up at the stroke of midnight on December 20 2012…no doubt because it didn’t scale.

Before that happens though, I’m resuming my entries on some of the beautiful sims that were built for the Fantasy Faire.  The slideshow below features The Tides, which was easily one of my favorite sims to visit.  Not only because of the magnificent build but just as much because of the otherworldly feeling it evoked.  (Along with the impromptu rooftop party on the last day of the Faire.)  You see, there be Giants in dem dere Tides.  A giant avatar named Colosus as a matter of fact.  Right when you tp’d in, there she was gazing from high above at everyone down below at the landing point.  (In the slideshow I hover over her left shoulder.)  Makes you feel like a newborn all over…and you find yourself staring in joyful wonder yet again at this wildly wonderful imaginative world of ours.

To get an even better feeling for Colosus’s scale, check out this great video called “Colosus at The Tides,” filmed by Deception Digital.

Siren’s Secret & Ruins of Nu Orne

The title of this post is a bit misleading.  The slidehow below is made up almost entirely of photos of Siren’s Secret.  Only two photos of Ruins of Nu Orne found their way here and that’s only because I ran out of time.  The Fantasy Faire faded back into starlight before I could snap more images.  Next year I’ll plan the sim picture exercise out better.  As for this year, I’m just happy to have made some progress on the goal to explore the sims and capture them along the way.  All of them were spectacular…as even just one photo reveals.
