Before I start today’s post, I just wanted to announce that I’ve been very busy with school and work in real life these days and having some trouble juggling everything so I’ll be putting my Monday Memes on hold for a few months. Hopefully in July I should have more time and be able to start doing them again. I will of course continue to blog whenever I can right now, just the Monday memes will be on hold. Thank you all so much for participating in them, I really appreciate it!
Friday Find: Tillicum Islands
All of the images in today’s post are raw shots from Second Life.
The beautiful Ziki Questi actually told me about this sim a couple of months back, I just didn’t get a chance to visit until recently. It’s very peaceful and perfect for photography. The owner of the sim is Scott1 Yedmore and it was designed by the talented Tinker Drew (Leyna Resident).
I found this sim quite striking and enjoyed playing around with windlight when photographing it. I didn’t feel the need to photoshop the images either. The landscaping is amazing and I liked the mood and lighting that occurred in the images because of it. For more details about the sim itself, make sure to check out Ziki’s post.
- Photographer of the week: Skippy Beresford – Skippy is a delight to connect with on flickr. Not only does he make the most incredibly creative images, but the comments he leaves for other flickr users on their images are always so thoughtful and sweet. Should definitely give him a follow!

- Xiola Linden at The Trace Photo Field Trip – Linden Lab held another inworld meetup last Wednesday, April 22nd. I attended and took this pic of the gorgeous Xiola Linden.
