Isolde’s impressionistic take on the First Nations Dancers

Give a SL photographer a couple days with a SL sculpture collection as great as Cheen Pitney’s First Nations Dancers (more resident photos) and a graphics program like GIMP, and you get some wonderful results.  Isolde takes the images and, through multiple layering, sets them ablaze like the campfire they dance around.  Enjoy!

One thing led to another, and this admittedly self-indulgent photoessay of my journey around the sculptures of Oyster Bay resulted. There’s a sense of joy and freedom of being able to interact with the art in such a way – I encourage everyone to find such joy and fun in their SL experiences!
