if you want me, you can find me, left of center, wondering about you

Still wandering the grid, still building, still thinking in the interim moments. Beginning to feel very much as if I have painted myself into a metaphoric corner, but I still can't see any other way I had to get from there to here. So here I wait, until the paint dries.

Joy, I get to think more.

In the meantime, I went to Sector 7, at long last, and looked around.

Welcome to Hoover Dam. This is, start to finish, I should tell you, an amazing build. The detail is phenomenal, all the small pictures lead to much larger ones so you can really see what I'm talking about. As I stood on the upper road running across the dam, fog kept drifting in and drifting away.

Two ways to get downstairs--elevator, or stairs. Both are on my left from where I stand in the first shot. The initial downstairs space is insanely yellow, but again, richly textured, vibrant and realistic. Every door leads to something, and I didn't go into them all--I had another goal.

The elevator was simple to operate and very industrial. Obviously intended to move heavy machinery, not people, and you could tell by the heavy vibration of operation that had me jumping and dancing in place. Fun.

Down in Sector 7, next to the power stations. I felt so out of place, I really needed the all-in-one coverall from the Die Hard build, but I haven't gone yet, I'm not sure it's still there. There's a set of t-shirts on this level, by the way...somewhere.

On the far side of the power station, two tunnels that lead to another room, and the free Bumblebee avatar Silverscreen is offering. I stood there for a while, watching people come in, see the avatar box, unpack it, sort out the instructions, and unfold into bright yellow mechs before my eyes. Fun fun stuph.

(Note the reflection of the tunnel on the floor...)

And this was another wonderfully detailed little room, just off the media center...I can't even count the insane number of prims it must have taken, to lovingly craft each bit of this medical office, but it's staggering, the attention to detail, the intense texturing. Amazing.

I must go back and look around more, I think. I think I've only just touched on the surface of how cool this is. Look for Sector 7, or the Transformers build on Silverscreen, or hells, IM me. I've got the landmark.

And full circle stop again, at the old same place. This time...I think I'm going to haunt my parcel. I have a little Gothic house in mind...

I think I will need to visit that! Sorry I'm not the best of bloggers or blog readers, I am way too addicted to SL. *giggles*

I do understand, plus you're back where you love after far too long away; I entirely understand!

Me, though, I'm also too addicted to writing and photography. :)
