Val d’Orcia

I was out and about and came across the “Val d’Orcia” build located on the “Ozark” sim.  This is a beautiful Tuscan themed residential sim with what appear to be rentals located here and there as you wander through it.  I happened to have property lines enabled on my viewer so was able to easily identify the different rental plots as I approached them.  I merely mention it so that those who choose to take pictures and look around are knowing of this fact and can be respectful to those residents.  This sim provides some very beautiful photographic opportunities and I was very impressed with the way it was done.

I hope you enjoy the pictures and, as always, the SLURL is located at the bottom of this post.

Goodnight – Open Until 9/30

It has been roughly a year and a half since I have worked on a sim that I felt good enough about to truly call home and, with Sofia’s help, we have created such a sim. I still remember the first sim that I attempted to build, ironically with her, and the feeling of surprise when it turned out to be what it was.

I never go into a sim build with an idea in mind but rather a fragmented collection of mental postcards that create the foundation of what I would like.  Piecing them together is always the challenge for me.  I typically start with one area and then build an adjacent area and so on and so on.  Sofia always tends to keep me on track if I tend to wander to far into the bizarre.  Her contributions to the sim are always well thought out and beautiful.  She has created several sims on her own, despite her self-proclaimed lack of vision and talent.  ALL the interior decorating you see on this sim is the result of her vision, I cannot even begin to take credit for that.

As this is our home, we have decided to open it for a short time to share it with our friends as well as those friends that we have yet to meet.  We do hope that you will stop by and check it out.  We will have it open to the public until September 30th. Please bear in mind that it is not totally completed but, then again, are they ever completed?  And while there, be sure and check out Goodnight Amusement Park and the Goodnight Main Store (SLURLs located at the bottom of this post.)

I do hope to see you come by and I hope you enjoy the preview pictures.

Back through the Gates of Melancholy

Last summer I visited the Gates of Melancholy as documented here:  Gates of Melancholy.  I knew then I would be visiting again and these shots are from my latest trip there.

This is one of those sims that has a continuous appeal to me.  Not overdone, beautifully artistic, and well thought out.  Photographic opportunities galore and definitely worth a visit.

There are times in your life where you find yourself thinking about revisiting something from the past be it a sim, a club, or even a person.  All I can say is, that if the desire is there, pursue it.  Sometimes you will be disappointed with the pursuit while other times you will be delighted.  You never know until you act upon your impulse.

So, if you have the desire to check out the original post, please scroll up and click the link in the first paragraph.  I would hope that it leaves you delighted.  🙂

I hope you enjoy the pictures and, as always, the SLURL is included at the bottom of this post.
