Serendipitous Return

Seraphim was walking past one of her pictures from her visits, last year, to ‘Serendipitous Sands‘, and wondered if it still existed/had changed…

Pre-DipyTous

… so she called up her ‘Teleport History‘, found the address, and zapped back there…

DipyTous

… it was still there…

DipyTous2

… barely changed…

DipyTous3

… as beautiful, and restful as ever…

DipyTous5

… Seraphim was pleased it hadn’t, yet, gone the way of most great SL builds.

 

Eisa Gallery Setup

EisaSetup

Seraphim finally made her move to establish a gallery in Eisa Colony, 3 days ago. She rented an empty floor in the Bushnell Suites, the 5th floor, to be precise…

EisaSetup2

… then she spent around 8 hours, over the last 3 days, but, mostly today, setting the gallery space up. Her 3 previous rented gallery spaces have given her the experience, and a go-to set of ‘brand collateral’, to quickly set up a new gallery…

EisaSetup2a

… she had a lot of fun doing this, as always, but, this was even more special, because this was a gallery in Eisa, the heart of the Gynoid world…

EisaSetup3

… as always, she placed several of her many dolls around the space. The gallery is on floor five, and she can look out the window at the NS Mainstore and, hopefully, when the re-decorating is finished in Eisa, much more, as well…

EisaSetup4

… as many of the people who come here will be Gynoid, she has provided a couple of wall-mounted charge points for the use of any depleted units who may come to view the art…

EisaSetup5

… the very first visitor, minutes after Seraphim had finished the final touches, and was sitting in one of the chairs, relaxing, was a 4 day old avatar named Wind, and his tech-pet, Zero…

EisaSetup6

… the second visitor was Luna, the star of Seri’s last photo-shoot. The two friends enjoyed the new space, together, Luna checking out the view…

EisaSetup8

… when Seraphim first negotiated renting the space for a gallery, she was given the impression she could put a sign outside the Bushnell Suites. Unfortunately, once she was established, this turned into her being only able to have a sign in the lobby… which, while better than nothing, is not ideal…

EisaSetup9

… Seraphim and Luna were talking about this, and Luna said she would happily wear a sandwich board and stand in the NS Mainstore… Seraphim suddenly thought about Luna’s ‘Terabit’, a holographic cube that NS Gynoids can wear above their heads, if they choose, with simple phrases on them, after a bit of experimentation, the girls discovered that Luna could put Seraphims gallery sign in her Terabit, and it looked fabulous. The friends were delighted they had come up with this way to subvert the limitation placed on Seraphim by the Eisa hierarchy. Luna went down to the Mainstore to test it…

EisaSetup10

… and within seconds, she had attracted a visitor, or perhaps it was her naked breasts… Seri had to log off, then, but things are looking exciting for her in Eisa.

 

The Far Away

FarAway

Seraphim has been going through her oldest TP’s, and deleting the ones that no-longer exist, of which there are, as usual, quite a few. Usually, the TP either does not work at all, or she arrives on abandoned land, or in someones private yard, often to be threatened by petty security systems… occasionally, the original destination is gone, but one just as interesting is in it’s place, which is always fun…

FarAway2

… it’s been well over 5 years since she went to ‘The Far Away’… so long, in fact, that she didn’t even recognise the name for the destination…

FarAway3

… the moment she saw that Wyeth-like, surreal dreamscape, and the iconic derelict locomotive, she remembered… she came here when the place was first popular… it was always way too crowded to get any decent photographs… even yesterday, there were always about 4 other avi’s there, but everyone stayed on the fringes, so Seri had no problem getting awesome pictures…

FarAway4

… she has no memory of the aeroplane being here, but it was so long ago, she can’t be sure if she has simply forgotten it’s presence…

FarAway5a

… it’s almost impossible to take bad pictures, here, the sim is such a wonderful piece of stage-craft…

FarAway6

… but, if you take the time to set up your angles, the place is just mesmerising, and lends itself to gorgeous images that evoke vast, empty spaces from a long-lost era..

FarAway7

… the sim is a masterfully constructed piece of visual chicanery…

FarAway8a

… zen-like in it’s simplicity, and the placement of it’s elements. Seri thinks it is, by far, the most beautiful sim she has ever seen in SL.

Two Places

Seraphim has just visited two totally different, picturesque places…

twoPlaces

… the first was ‘The Last Forever’, one of those Wyeth-painting-like sims, with vast, empty horizons and dust-dry, burnt-brown colouring…

twoPlaces2

… where everything is dead, or dying, derelict, and decaying, the water is shallow, stagnant, and dirty…

twoPlaces3

… the sky is tainted by the dead land, dust-laden and empty…

twoPlaces4

… only the toughest, most ancient plants thrive. The dry wind blew through her thoughts as the lone, alien traveller, wandered this landscape…

twoPlaces5

… the second place she visited, was ‘Sol Existence’, a place of lush, moist growth, where the predominant colours were greens, mixed with explosions of floral colours, the skies blue, and filled with sea-birds, the breeze fresh, and salt-laden…

twoPlaces6

… the dwellings, though ancient, were very much alive and in use, beautifully cared for and obviously loved…

twoPlaces7

… an alien wanderer could feel the strength of green things thriving, smell the pines and hear the sea-birds…

twoPlaces8

… and soak up the power, and depth, of the eternal ocean.
