In a place long forgotten by men, Mother Nature took over and the spirits of the forest can be seen wandering around.

Abandonned

Spirits of the forest

A lighthouse, barely seen among the trees, scatters its light around, letting us see glimpses of what once must have been a beautiful place.

Lonely Watcher

But then you get struck by terrifying sights.

Cursed

Lonely witnesses of times past can be seen, turned into stone by some old curse. What happened here? What terrible events hide behind those images?

Fading away

Are you brave enough to go there and find out?

Yesterday when I logged in I had two unusual experiences that I would like to share with you.

Going through all the notices received, I got this one from Cosmopolitan and headed there to get a beautiful outfit from FBD with a 50% discount which I will show you in another post.

Headed home and rezzed the box. I never had bought anything from FBD before, so imagine my surprise when I see this rezzing in my dressing room. Congrats to Darlriada Delwood for the imagination and thinking out of the box.

The second surprise was a delightful IM from Jana Nexen, congratulating me for my photos and inviting me to visit her SIM – Sense.

I have never heard of Sense before (I don’t make much myself most of the time lol) and had some time on my hands so I headed there.

The island was built by Jana and Soo Vemoo and it is beautiful. A quiet place, full of games, so well build-in to the landscape that you almost miss them. For those of you who like to play zingo, there is also a skybox at 3000 meters high. The island is almost lag free and a very peaceful place to hangout with your friends or alone.

And back to blogging again after a long 9 month period. And no, don’t get any ideas inside your pixel heads, I didn’t have a baby hehehe

Back to blogging and to show you some of the great places you can find in our beloved virtual world. What a better way to start than with the last work of Cica Ghost?

Most of you probably know some of Cica’s works, like Rust, Black and White World, Ghost Ville, Small Village or The Visitors. I find in her works a mix of innocence and wonder and, at the same time, her attention to details, the wonderful textures, the movement and all the ambiance makes you want to stay there forever. She is also a great photographer. You can check her photostream here

Her new build, Little Town, is no exception. Even if you run Second Life on low graphics you can still see the beauty of the place.

The first two pictures were taken on low graphics and with region windlight default so you can see how it looks. All the others are also raw from SL (windlight preset “Bristol”).

Are you still there? Log in and get to Little Town. It will be worth it!

I already mentioned somewhere that I like to do map hopping and discover little gems that (supposedly) haven’t been blogged yet. The 1st of January was no different and after some of the usual deserted or badly build islands I landed at the Whisper Forest. After everything was loaded I find myself surrounded by beautifully carved gothic arches and an arched pathway in front of me leading to this beautiful forest.

Path to paradise

Explored a lot and took tons of pics and yesterday I showed the place to my good friends Chagal and Flor. We were there for hours (literally) just wandering around and even found new spots I had missed the day before.

It was very hard to choose which pics to put here, but here they go. You can rezz there so grab your gear and if you like leave in comments the link for your pictures. Always love to see the different approaches of the same places. 🙂

Just like I mentioned in my last post, I found another gem last monday when doing map-hopping – The Historical Rosemount Plantation.

Landing at the garden gate, you can immediately see the beautiful stone carvings on the walls and the amazing cast iron work on the gate itself.

Front gate

I usually take a look at the “About land” just in case the places have specific rules, like RP or dress codes, and here is what was written:

Historic Rosemount Plantation is a 19 room, 1832 Southern Antebellum plantation located in Forkland, Alabama and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places by the US Department of the Interior. Built by Ethan Westland as his home in SL.

Rosemount Manor

Curious as I am, I talked to my friend Google, who knows everything, and I got the wiki page of the plantation. The manor looks exactly like the real one and Mr. Ethan Westland has made a great job. I didn’t enter the house, since it was private, but I started walking down the road among beautiful trees dressed in red and orange.

Autumn path

At the end of the path there was this little chapel with amazing stained glass windows and near by a small graveyard, not a spooky one, no worries.

Rosemount Church

I was starting to get hungry and feeling a bit tired of all the walking so I went to the apple trees nearby and decided to call it out for the day with an apple and some rest.

How many times are we walking on the street and we cross paths with people without seeing them? Rebeca Bashly takes the invisible people theme and does this amazing art installation at La Citta Perduta, with a skillfull  texturization of human figures that blend in perfectly in the city landscape.

Walking around the city, entering every building and trying to find all of the 21 sculptures was a lot of fun although I will have to go back, since I spent sometime goofing around and I didn’t find them all (missing 5).

Goofing around

It may take you some time to get the right angle of each figure and some are not easy to spot, but be sure not to miss it. The whole island is beautifully build and if you find all of the 21 sculptures and send their pictures to Rebeca (in SL, Flickr or email to invisible.people@live.com) she will offer you one sculpture, how great is that?

I won’t disclose all I have found (what fun would that be?) but leave you here three so you can have a glimpse of what to expect.

Although in my home town we are still having quite nice weather, with blue skies and warm Autumn sun, in Second Life the Winter scenes are again starting to emerge.

I really like snow and in RL I don’t have that many opportunities to see and feel it. Most of my friends, who endure snow for almost half of the year, tell me I am a lucky girl but I would love to have a white Christmas one of these years.

I saw Cait’s post in her blog and decided to gather my usual victims friends and headed to some fun in the snow at Izzie’s. And glad we did, not only the main store has great stuff but the place is beautifully landscaped.

So grab your winter gear and your pocket L$ and go and take a look. It will be worth your time.
