SL:On Location – Autumn on Pigeon Island

Everyone must take time to sit and watch the leaves turn.”

Autumn on Pigeon Island - Creek

Autumn on Pigeon Island - Rid & FinnI was recently invited to be a contributor to the SL Blogger Support blog. \o/ As such I will be writing articles about blogging whether it be about locations for pretty pictures, about new events, ideas for blog topics, about why I blog, etc. This is the first of my contribution posts. [You can see the post on SL Blogger Support here.]

One of my favorite things to do in SL is to find sims that are pretty or interesting. I received a group message from the creator of Vespertine a few days ago about Pigeon Island being all prettified for the Fall.  I didn’t realize she owned the sim when I’d done a post about Pigeon Island before. (You can see the “before” Fall pics here.) It is really beautiful there, with cute little areas for sitting and chatting. I love all the Fall colors and the pretty reflective creek the runs through the middle of the sim.

Taking pictures somehow feeds something creative in me. Landscape pictures gives me one such opportunity. Whether it be choosing a new windlight to use, or a specific angle at which to take a shot, or whether or not to put people in the picture I could spend hours taking pic after pic. While I may not be the one doing the actual creating of things or the designing of a sim, writing about them and sharing them with others also provides me with an outlet that lets me express myself, even if all I write is a few words. I think I have the tendency to write like I am writing a letter to a friend. I often write things that I find humorous as I write them. Although I’m not sure that my humor comes across all the time the way I intend. ;-p

Autumn on Pigeon Island - BridgeI usually don’t do much in the way of editing landscape shots. With all the options in SL for photography, post-editing can be very simple or not needed at all. I want to learn how to use Photoshop to do more involved effects and editing, but I lack patience. (Ha! That’s a HUGE understatement.) I have an idea for a picture that has been poking at me and it will require that I learn how to use certain features. In my new role as contributor, learning something new will give me something to write about at the very least. Even something for others to laugh at when I start cursing like a drunken sailor.

But for now I am gonna stop talking and let you enjoy the pictures. And go take some of your own. ❤
