The fall landscape is perfect for photos. 

The LEA sims

   Every so often I like to go into SL and just teleport to the LEA sims to see whats new. I dont know a lot  about The Linden Endowment for the Arts but the artists apply for grants to create art on sims. There appears to be 20 sims that are available. The Linden Endowment for the Arts (LEA) was created to help provide and enhance arts activity in Second Life. It is a collaborative venture between Linden Lab and the arts community according to the website info which you can find here.
    There are so many fantastic artistic creations  shown  through this program that runs in I think 6 month cycles before another artist  showcases their work. I decided to place all the artist's work together for the sake of time and actually feel its easier for me to do it this way. So here are  the landmarks and photos with the name of recent exhibitions I have visited. I hopefully will add more LEA exhibitions soon.

    Well worth spending some time exploring and learning about the installation. Lea Sim - FACES Please take some time to check it out. At the hub you pick an avatar to walk through and each one takes you to a different destination and scenario. I visited several times and always found something interesting.  .

Malal's Autumn , The Cedars

    If you are looking for a beautiful sim in full autumn season this is it. Brightly colored leaves of yellows, golds and reds are scattered throughout the land. Amid all this is a quaint country village style town center with outlaying areas to wander around in or hop on one of the bikes for a ride through the countryside. After a visit to the tea room, Salon de The, for a light  meal  I was ready to explore again. There is a refreshing rain shower that seems to make it even more realistic while moving along the build that I found to be very enjoyable. When leaving the town center you will come upon brightly colored yellow fields with stone buildings also a  white picket fence that frames a cute country cottage brings even more charm to the land. Not far from the town is the bus stop where I took time to sit and read the newspaper before venturing farther down the road. So many things to see from the classic covered bridge to the giant chess game set, animals and vintage trucks.  Hope you enjoy your visit.
