Winter Wandering, Not What You’d Expect

I started out looking for a snow-covered spot, but Yuki No Yume: Dream of Snow was so slow to load that I ended up in Pangloss, a rather pink, artsy world. Not the kind of dark steampunk spot you’d expect me to be at.

I tried something seasonal, Santa’s Workshop, but there were too many public displays of skin for my taste–why did Santa’s Workshop attract those kinds of avatars? No pics from there. I’ll have to research the winter wonderland spots a little better next time

So I went back to the JD Mechanical Toy Factory, comfortably steampunk, and as usual got stuck on an upper floor looking out the window. But even the factory was in a little holiday mood as you can see with that nice mechanical train set, and, I don’t know, was that evil clown head in the entrance a holiday feature?

the rest of the Burning Life ’09 snapshots

I finally found the rest of my snapshots from Burning Life ’09, which prompts me to advise you about thinking more carefully when you name a snapshot. I had begun taking snapshots on our SL campus with the name nightwatch, and then continued at Burning Life, and they all had that name. I include the campus shots, too:

Here are some snapshots taken at Burning Life 09, but you really must experience it yourself. You just might find yourself standing (or sitting) on top of a skeleton:





and one more with terrific color.
