Marx has been after me for months to open an inworld gallery for my photos. I resisted- mainly because it seemed odd. My pics are readily available here and on Flickr, and a gallery just seemed like a waste. But she was persistent and encouraging. And she made me think.
I realized that an inworld gallery makes sense for a lot of reasons. Chief among them is that my shots are Second Life photos. They’re meant to look like SL pics, and I love the characteristics of a shot taken inworld. An inworld gallery is a natural choice for viewing inworld art. I enjoy wandering through galleries in SL, and the immersive feel of viewing art that way.
Another good reason? Let’s be honest, looking this good isn’t free. My photos are my hobby and I don’t have a lot of play money these days, what with keeping my family alive and fed and all. Selling some pics to pay for my hobby would sure be nice. I don’t do much building, so I buy most of my props and I’m happy to do it. But I could buy more if I were actually selling something inworld.
Crap Mariner made my decision easy for me when he built a gallery on Edloe. The Viewing Room is under the mountain, perfectly situated under Marx’s The Listening Room. It’s the perfect space, and I couldn’t love it more.
I’ll be opening soon. I’m excited and nervous and very, very honored to have this space. I hope to have a grand opening bash- and you’re invited! But first I have to learn how to package items for sale.
