Second Life

Published by under Digital

My friend Richard insisted that I sign up on Second Life. It is his belief that this, or something like it, is the future of the internet. In case you’re unfamiliar with this program, it is a 3D environment that uses your personal computer in conjunction with Internet-Connected servers. It enables anyone to navigate through the world, and interact with others from just about anywhere. It has its own economy, with millions of dollars flowing through it, and these ‘virtual’ dollars are transferrable into and out of the real world. Users can own, rent, or lease virtual property, build structures, and develop behaviors, activities, and other objects with amazing ease, yet with equally amazing complexity.

Seattle has some rather steep hills.

Parking is a challenge in Seattle

Although I take skyline shots, I’m not often enamoured of them. This one, however, appeals to me for some reason.

Seattle Rising Up

Washington State is known for its natural beauty, and bountiful wildlife. It is surprising, though, to discover some in the heart of the City.

This was once a pawn shop

I’ve always loved trees, but this winter began photographing leafless ones.

And another.

Strange how they begin to look alike…

Published by under Art,Digital,Gratitude,Photography

I’m sure you’ve heard the old saying that dogs and their owners eventually begin to look alike. Well, although it isn’t often discussed, this can unfold and reveal itself in surprising ways. For example, I don’t think that anyone would claim that my dear friend Elayne looks anything like her dog, Scooter….

Or would they?

Another Piece (of art)

Published by under Art,Digital

A while back we got to see California’s arch nemesis Ken Lay being led off in handcuffs after being arrested by Federal Agents. There was an AP wire picture of him and I became captivated by his face in that picture. I began playing with it, manipulating it, and wound up with this:
