Stormy Roentgen’s “Electrified”

I really like this photo…has a certain Central Park feel to it with the trees in the foreground and the skyscrapers in the background.

(So noone’s confused, this wasn’t taken at Oyster Bay…)

Ty Ebisu: New SL photo exhibit at Second Arts

God bless RL – I look away to tend to things earthly for a little while and find that an entire new exhibit opened up at Oyster Bay!

SL photographer Ty Ebisu replaced his entire collection at the Second Arts Photography gallery with 20 new pieces – each a unique and beautiful landscape or environmental photo. A unique point to Ty’s work is that he does NO touchup to the photos that he takes – meaning that he is meticulous in setting his scene and getting the lighting correct.

Isolde Flamand – quickly becoming the official photographer of Oyster Bay (a title she should share with Daedalus Young) – took these photos of Ty’s exhibit. But really, you need to stop by and look at them up close. This is some impressive work!

What does a griefer attack LOOK like?

Yeah, Oyster Bay got hit because a property (not Oyster Bay’s!) in the Shepherd sim left its rezzing privileges wide open. As a result, some griefer blessed us with this “goodness.” Because we’re the artistic types, here’s the same attack in night view (courtesy of photojournalist Isolde Flamand):

I was fortunate to reach the Linden Lab concierge service before the concierge website crashed. It appears that this was a (tasteless) gridwide 9/11 “attack.”

Let’s hope that Linden Lab gets a handle on this problem soon – those of us who pay our bills to LL and take appropriate measures to protect our property should not have to be subject to this abuse.

[UPDATE: Hats off to the owner of the adjoining property where the griefers were plying their trade.  Upon learning of what was happening (he’s selling his property), he returned and “locked down” his property.  Best thing he could’ve done.  Thanks!]
