Footprints in the Seasons

Finding myself with an abundance of free time in Second Life as of late, I decided to look around the grid and came across “~Footprints In The Seasons Rentals~” located on the “Serena Coral Cay” sim.

Looking a little closer, I realized that Welshy (Kristy Enyo) and Booty (Bootysnatcha Leeeroy) are the co-owners of it.  You may remember Welshy’s other sim, Footprints in the Sand, previously featured on the blog.

This new build is breathtaking.  It does offer rentals for those interested in living there but is also open for photographers and those interested in just viewing this beautiful build.  As with any sim that offers rentals, you should take care to respect the privacy of the residents and behave appropriately when visiting.

Beautiful sim and kudos to both of them.  I have included my pictures and hope that you get a chance to visit it.  The SLURL is located at the bottom of this post.

Green Story

The land description for “Green Story” reads, “You have to relax here.  You have to think here.  You Banks here Another memory.”  My interpretation of the last line is that you store another memory, at least that is how I took it, and this is the place to do it.  I noticed some couple milling around as well as just individuals relaxing and taking in the ambiance of the sim.  A good place to sit back and just relax after you do your exploring and take your pictures.

I hope you enjoy the pictures and I have included the SLURL at the bottom of the post.

Los Banos

Every once in a while, I come across a build that really strikes my fancy and this is one of those.  It has this feeling of desperation about it and reminds me a lot of when I ventured off the resort I was staying at in Jamaica to look around.  One thing that really struck me about Jamaica was some of the housing.  When you first see them, you immediately assume that some are in a state of ruin.  I struck up a conversation with a homeowner and he explained that it was quite the opposite.  They were building the house but could only build based on the funds that they had.  To borrow money was prohibitively expensive so they built as they could afford to.  Therefore, they only completed the house a room at a time and, with their climate, it was not a big deal to have certain areas without a roof for an extended period of time as long as it was still just concrete block.  It was very enlightening.

This build is not the same as that experience in Jamaica, it just brought back the memory.  “Los Banos” is more about a community in the grips of decline.  The land description for this build reads, “Welcome to Los Banos the locals have nicknamed it Perdition, due to it’s beautiful exterior and high poverty rates it’s been named one of the worst places to live, but one of the best places to visit due to it’s historical sites and places to explore.”

I have included the pictures I grabbed as well as the SLURL at the bottom of the post.

welcome to somewhere

I heard about the “welcome to somewhere” build and it sounded intriguing so, you guessed it, I had to visit.  Located on the “Salmson Isle” sim, it has an apocalyptic urban feeling to it.  There were other people milling around the streets so not all was lost but you could tell this neighborhood was once part of a thriving metropolis.  The build is very well laid out with lots of things to see and do.  I even observed the owner taking a couple of swings in the batting cage shortly after leaping from the platform above the landing point (yes, that is DarkDesire, Stefan Salmson in SL, pictured in that shot.)

DarkDesire and Madison (Princess Hienrichs in SL) have quite the place here and you can explore and take pictures to your hearts content.  They do offer the option to join their group (for a fee) in order to rez poseballs and other items should you desire.  They only ask that you remember to pick them up when you leave.

I have included a handful of pictures I shot while there and have included the SLURL at the bottom of the post.  I hope you enjoy them and the sim.
