The City by Betty Tureaud, LEA27

Visit here: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/LEA27/66/79/1502

Today was the grand opening of Betty Tureaud's "The City" at LEA27.  This very cool large city build with sculpture, flying planes, and amazing colors is very impressive but be sure to adjust settings to see all the beautiful colors.  You need Medium Ultra High settings with Projector light.  There was a large crowd and I saw up to 75 at one point with Ultraviolet providing music and Betty on hand for a great opening event.  The usage of 4 sims for perspective proves there is art in open spaces, said LEA host LaPiscean Liberty about the sim.  Betty suggested exploring in the city and clicking some houses for links too.  The landing is a airplane teleport and there is a poem provided and meaning for the sim I will let you explore for yourself!   I also found playing with windlights for different effects was very fun.  Check it out at the link above.

Beginners by Cica Ghost

Visit here: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Night%20Atoll/128/128/33

This cool sim by Cica Ghost is now open and again Cica combines creativity and whimsy for a fun and interesting explore.  Somehow I think this one has deeper meaning but I might be too tired to grasp it at this late point in the day and it's fun at face value anyway.    The sim info simply states:   "Every end is a new beginning."  Cica's places often have a little more than meets the eye so look all around and be sure to sit on the roof tops.. which basically just grabbed me.   I saw this today in editor's pics on the SL Destination guide and was a little presently surprised to find yet another new build by Cica.  I blogged her prior not long ago here: http://karasecondlife.blogspot.com/2015/12/cica-ghosts-roots.html  This new one has a similar feel with the building shapes and that giant moving snail with the house on it's back.. yup.. it's very interesting and well worth a visit.

HIgh Water: A Great Place to Explore Again

Visit here: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/High%20Water/110/239/21

Today I noticed blogger Ziki Questi blogged about High Water a sim I really love.  I blogged in previously here: http://karasecondlife.blogspot.com/2015/09/high-water-excellent-artsy-explore.html

And you can read Ziki's current post here: http://zikiquesti.blogspot.com/2016/01/high-water.html

So I stopped back in again and sure enough I ran into sim owner and creator Morton Funk again and had a nice chat with him and snapped a few more pics.  This is a super relaxing and beautiful water based photographic sim that works well with many windlights so check it out some time.  If you visited before you will note Morton has changed it up a little excluding so much of the art of others but is now more of a minimalist nature setting with some new beautiful additions.
