306 - Rocking chair

Where's Dim Sum? #306 - Rocking chair


Dim Sum almost fell into the water when the world shook. With aftershocks!


I had just taken this photo when my screen shook, because they were restarting the sim. So I quickly took the settings shots with the UI (below) and just barely made it with a couple of seconds remaining.

The shaking (several times) was too distracting and I had to wait until it stopped to take the pictures, so I turned that off after I installed the Firestorm.

The boats were created by Haveit Neox.

305 - Do you see the sea deer, dear?

Where's Dim Sum? #305 - Do you see the sea deer, dear?


Dim Sum stares and wonders how these silly strange winged creatures expect the big fish to get through those narrow columns.


Incredible imagination and impressive implementation! That's all I can say. All "i" words. :)

The sea deer (with or without bucket), the jumping fish, the bass fish, the big fish head, the pillar cluster were all created by Haveit Neox.

304 - Not quite Kanagawa

Where's Dim Sum? #304 - Not quite Kanagawa


Dim Sum sits and looks around her in awe at the big fishes and strange creatures.


OMG! OMG! OMG! This sim is a feast for the eyes! It is so immersive that it's really like walking into someone's dream world (which is more in line with the SL12B theme "What Dreams May Come").

I was planning to just take one photo of each of the 13 sims, but I changed my mind. Obviously. :) If the sims remain open for a while longer, I'll be taking more photos in this sim.

The Poseidon's Abyss sim was built by Haveit Neox. Shown here is the "Mini Fish City 1".

303 - Elemental Magik

Where's Dim Sum? #303 - Elemental Magik


Dim Sum watches the flying insects around the boat's torch and wonders if she could catch one of them if she pounces on the boat when it gets closer.


I took this image a week ago! But I had been too busy to post it.

This sim's theme is books! I love it! Here's a shot of the "page" that's used as the boat's sail (and the title of this post):


And another spell book page that's used as the roof of one of the stores:

302 - Ichi Flowers

Where's Dim Sum? #302 - Ichi Flowers


Dim Sum watches the giant dragonfly whirr above her. "Yes, that's it.... Come closer...."


I had to derez a lot of things in the far background because of full-bright vendors that ruin the picture. *sigh* I wish there was a setting in the viewer that lets you turn off all full-bright things.

This overexposure effect on only one side was a combination of sun position and SG. Foc. Those dots on the left are actually some full-bright tops over columns in the water.

The flowers were created by Sharni Azalee (The Looking Glass).

301 - Merhorsepower night and day

Where's Dim Sum? #301 - Merhorsepower night and day


Dim Sum couldn't decide which merhorse to put her money on.


This is another pleasant surprise. I was browsing through windlight and one of them cast a shadow from one of the big buildings nearby. There were a lot of big buildings around this landing spot, so it was bound to happen.

So I just darkened the shadows and arranged the shadow to end between the two merhorses. The green light is a local light from the spheres between the horses' front legs.

The "Sculpture ~ Waterhorse (Hippocampus)" was created by Garvie Garzo (meadowWorks).

300 - Morning with the candy corn mohawk

Where's Dim Sum? #300 - Morning with the candy corn mohawk


Dim Sum wonders if the parrot's candy-corn mohawk was edible too.


I think this is my favorite of the set. I'm using some vignette effects on this set and it's just right for the mood I'm going for.

I thought it would be difficult to find interesting shadows in this sim, because it's mostly a "cultivated" garden and some buildings. But the shadows created by the greenhouse panes are beautiful.

If I had a greenhouse like this in real life, I'd be spending all my mornings there.

The "Marilyn" dress was created by Inga Wind (Inga Wind Clothing).
The "Chaise - Wicker  White" was created by Pamela Galli (La Galleria).
