365 days of SL, day 5

I'll just post the screenshot first today and talk about it afterwards:

timberwoof started another building project at BG, a recreation of the Black Gazza that existed before the panopticon-based design that we currently have.

It's a very rough approximation only, and I doubt it'll really go anywhere; but even though there's probably not much of a point to it, either, it's sort of nice to see this incarnation again, which (coincidentally) also was the first incarnation of Black Gazza that I saw myself, back in late 2008. (Wow, that long ago already?)

I say "sort of nice" because it still feels too much like a rough draft to really recreate the feeling of back then. I don't have many screenshots of BG back then (and the ones I have, by and large, aren't good), but here's one that actually works, cropped to a widescreen aspect ratio. Compare:

It's fun to think back to those days, the way the BG looked and felt, the people that were there and all that; but we can only move forward, not back.
