Virtual Olympia Fountain

Off to the east of the Temple of Zeus is this magnificent fountain.  (This isn’t the best angle for a shoot, but there’s a few things surrounding the area that I had to fight with.)

Teleport to nearby….

Sunset in Virtual Olympia

Sunsets are wonderful subjects for photographs.  This is in Virtual Olympia, where I did one of my Hallowe’en costumes this year.  The large building on the left is the Temple of Zeus; there are various other monuments around the island, and a combat arena for serious fighters using the DCS 2 system.

SL Hallowe’en — Olympian Oracle

Far-seeing Sybil, forever hidden,
Come out of your cave at last
And speak to us in the poet’s voice
the voice of the fourth person singular
the voice of the inscrutable future
the voice of the people mixed
with a wild soft laughter–
And give us new dreams to dream,
Give us new myths to live by!

From “To the Oracle at Delphi”
Lawrence Ferlinghetti

I Am Imix, Primal Mother.
Still, dark womb of the patterned potential of becoming,
sacred, interstellar genesis, I Am.
Nourishing, fertile abyss, I birth you.
Benevolent, my mighty cauldron of primal waters,
enveloping the living seed.
Eternal is my embrace.

From “Imix”
Ariel Spilsbury and Michael Bryner

Dark shots were made with Euphoria realm WindLight setting; this may be available standard on the current release of Emerald Viewer.  Face lit with FaceFX face light.

I photographed this spread at the Temple of Zeus in Virtual Olympia, a remarkable sim which is part of a complex of Periclean Greece sims set up for combat systems.  The temple, including its recreation of the famous statue of Zeus from the temple at RL Olympia, a work of art now lost to the world, was built by Qeux Serge over two months of work, according to Socrates Dionysus, my contact.  Be sure to stop by and look at the region; but remember to observe the rules of the sim, and keep in mind that these regions are combat enabled.  That may be forbidden in Olympia, but be aware of the possibility.
