It'll be a short post today - I'm achieving all new depths of frustration trying to take photographs. Something is throttling Second Life and until I find it I have little joy in my usual adjusting/sliding/button pushing/clicking adventures.
Having said that, there is a very cool sim called Aught that deserves your attention. Ever wonder what the devestated parts of Japan look like now months after the earthquake and tidal wave? If you believe the creators of this landscape, Mother Nature is now taking the opportunity to reclaim the areas she previously treated so harshly. The industrial complex seems broken beyond repair but the colour green is becoming more and more evident as plant life achieves dominance.
This is a post-apocalyptic vision of a real life post-apocalypse. There are stores in the rubble with some interesting items to tempt you to open your wallet and continue providing financial support to aid recovery efforts. Although caused by a horrendous tragedy the landscape is beautiful as it overcomes recent history - seemingly much more ready to recover than are the people who once lived here.
I enjoyed visiting Aught and I wish I could bring you better images - you'll just have to visit yourself and find your own. :)
