264 - Ornate railings

Where's Dim Sum? #264 - Ornate railings


Dim Sum rubs her neck and back against the railing to scratch an itch and mark her territory at the same time. Multitasking.... 


Okay, it looks like I can only do three today. And this is my favorite of the three.

Where's Dim Sum? #263 - Black bird


Dim Sum carefully watches the shadows flitting across the round patch of light on the floor far below.


I probably rejected about ten compositions before this one. But, moving on. I'm aiming for four before I go to bed. :)

262 - Broken windows

Where's Dim Sum? #262 - Broken windows


Dim Sum gingerly steps over the broken glass and finds a comfortable perch.


Honestly, I don't know why I'm taking pictures of a building in SL after spending two weeks taking pictures of buildings in real life. *sigh*

Anyway, I didn't want to take the stereotypical pictures for Halloween, so it's very low-key in this one. There are bats flying around somewhere there. And skeletons hanging around too, but they don't show well, if at all. :)

261 - A girl and her cat

Where's Dim Sum? #261 - A girl and her cat


Opal meows. Dim Sum stares back blankly, thinking, "Why do humans even bother to imitate cat-speak? Don't they know their meows are unintelligible to native meowers?"


Meow. Meow. Meow. I thought of having a male-female couple on the table, but that's too cliche.

It was a bit tricky to move the camera to just the right position, while keeping the focus on the outside scene. I decided not to do too much DOF here, because there's still a sharp line around the DOF'd objects, which doesn't look right.

The "DIGS - Constance Potted Orchids" was created by Iris Maskelyne (DIGS - Furniture and Prefabs).
The "Culprit Edwardian Folly" building was created by eku Zhong (Culprit Fine Furniture).

260 - Schoolroom on the bluff

Where's Dim Sum? #260 - Schoolroom on the bluff


Dim Sum wonders where Skippy is.... Skipping school?


I think if I went to a school like this, I'd be in so much trouble because I'd had been looking out to see and daydreaming all day long.

The "[ba] ozark pavillion - white" was created by Barnesworth Anubis ([ba]).
The "Old Oak Pupils Desk / Chair" was created by Domineaux Prospero (The Domineaux Effect).

259 - Melting lighthouse

Where's Dim Sum? #259 - Melting lighthouse


Dim Sum starts getting woozy from the rocking boat.


There are four animals in this picture. Can you find them all? :)

I think I got everything in this pic - shadows, reflections, sky, water, land, building, landscape, wildlife, avatar. But no humans.

The "Pitching boat (with rope)" was created by Anthony Gartner (The Dreamer Creations).

258 - Shady facade

Where's Dim Sum? #258 - Shady facade


Dim Sum ignores the cooing behind her and searches the trees for the source of the more interesting chirps.


I'm on a roll! Three in one day! Woohoo! Of course, it's only because I'm procrastinating on other things I'm supposed to do, like laundry, taxes, groceries, and doing research for my upcoming trip. Oh, well, there's always tomorrow. *grins*

The "sf outdoor wall - light" was created by Heavenly Villa (**shutter field).
