There’s a bit of talk going on in the blogosphere at the moment about what constitutes art, screenshots and photographs… definitions, interpretations and intentions. It’s not something i intend to get involved in myself, even though i take images from sl and post them up here, i’ve no pretentions about whether or not they’re art or anything else for that matter. They are what they are… some may be pretty, some may be inspirational, some may well be quirky – that is the nature of sl itself, and for that matter, me too! Call them what you will, because i don’t really mind.
Like many, many, many of you, i grab hundreds of images from sl and, also like so many of you, most of them just sit clogging up my hard drive, never to see the light of day again. i do get to inflict some upon you poor unsuspecting souls via this blog… in fact, i even have some gallery pages set up just for that particular form of torture!
It hasn’t been updated for a while, but i’ve put that to rights today.
i wanted to share some of my favourite pictures from SL9B – it seems such a long time ago since that was all i was writing about, and it would be a great shame to consign it all to the never regions of a hard disk, without at least one more foray into the fun that was the birthday bash. They’re not the best pictures ever, no shadows, DOF or arty farty effects,(other people do that so much better than me anyway!), just a record of some of the things that i saw and made me go ‘Wow!’.
i hope you like them!

outside a bed and breakfast in sunny Southend.
Picture book, when you were just a baby,
those days when you were happy, a long time ago.
