"During the SeraCast last Friday I saw this gorgeous set from Bonnie and had to get it! It completely inspired the photo.

"Black and white photography has a unique ability to capture the essence of a subject or scene in a way that is timeless and evocative.

This interpretative role is what makes black-and-white photography so powerful and enduring." Read more on the blog.

"We mentioned in our guide to SL hunts how great they can be for new players. They’re a chance to better learn how the Grid works, meet new people, and explore unique destinations. The Valentine Candy Hunt, hosted by Roadside Treasures, is the perfect hunt for new SL residents. It’s pretty simple overall, but it still makes use of common game mechanics while offering a fun experience filled with loot." Read more on the blog.

That avatar is actually China Tracy from Second Life -- she still has an active account in SL, look her up! -- who's been showing up in Cao Fei's art projects since 2007" Read more on the blog.
