365 days of SL, day 202:

You may need to view this screenshot in a darker environment to appreciate it; it looked great to me last night, but now that it's day, with the sun shining right in my face, I'm finding it hard to make out anything on it and appreciate its subtle tones.

That said, this is a rather nice-looking house on FP Enigma that I noticed yesterday. I really like the construction as such, with its huge windows that no doubt would allow light to flood in during the day; but I also like how it looks at night, as seen here, with a warm, buttery yellow glow emanating from it, giving it an air of warmth and coziness, the kind of place where you would expect to be able to curl up on a sheepskin rug with a good book and a mug of hot chocolate while it's cold and dark outside.

It's the kind of place that should be located somewhere in the countryside, too, of course, away from other human settlements; it obviously wouldn't be the same if you had your neighbors staring right in through those huge windows all the time, or even if you saw and heard them constantly. Midnight blue skies, silver stars and the black silhouettes of fir trees should be all that's visible from a house like this at night.

In a way, it's a pity it's all just on Second Life, isn't it? Of course, if it were real, OTOH, it'd be unlikely to be accessible to me; at least this way I can see it at all (and interpret it my way, which, I'll grant, may not match the owner's vision).

Location: FP Enigma (108, 72, 21) (Enigma Pub at Peeled Downs on Enigma Lake)

Mm, that does look most inviting. ^_^ 'Course, IRL, I'd probably want either blinds or electrically tinted glass, to better be able to stroll around au naturel without putting on a display. =:)

You mean your place isn't like this?

The iPad 1's display shows it nicely, so I imagine it'd be even better on the current model. Maybe, if money's in evidence by then, I'll pick up an iPad 4 - I'd hope they'll have as good a display then as the iPhone 5 does, with a genuine sRGB gamut. (And while I'm dreaming, a 17" MBP with a retina-resolution display, for full 4K video goodness..)

That's one thing the lack of neighbors would be for. :) Combined with an extensive property that's surrounded by high evergreen trees to afford you some privacy.

In real life? No, it's the exact opposite in... pretty much regard, actually. :|
