SL9B Community Celebration – Pictures of the Day: Another awesome selection!

This is Saffia writing … and last night, when I was on the Metarelaity Podcast … and I very nearly managed to derail the discussion!  How did I do that? Well, I gave out the link to the SL9B Flickr group – and all the participants clicked on it – and were completely distracted by all the awesome things they started seeing there!

People are doing a fantastic job posting their pictures to the Flickr group – and here are just a few of them for today … but do go and look for yourselves, because there are so many more to be seen!

Here’s a fun display of cake and balloons on Hoedown, really getting in to the party spirit!

And here’s the SL9B Friendly Chatter Cafe created by Alana Pyara who says:

The café has room for several groups. Come visit and spend time with friends, meet new people, or “park” while afk. Get a cup of something to drink and a treat to go with it. Make sure to get the free gifts, too. Seats and treats for tinies as well as regular avatars.

And last but definitely not least – here’s a gorgeous view of the four-sim Cake Stage (located inNeuve, Neun, Tisa and Nine!).

Remember – we will be having our Community Hub, right by the welcome area, which will share links to and information about other SL9B events happening across the grid. And if you want YOUR build or event or party to appear, follow the instructions in this post – and you’ll be added to the Hub!

And here, from Inara Pey, is a picture of the Community Hub in the Welcome Area. You’ll also be able to get your HUD there, which will transport you all over the SL9B site.

SL9B Community Celebration – Pictures of the Day: It’s getting harder to choose!

There are so many amazing things to see at SL9B, and so many amazing photos coming in that it is getting increasing hard to choose just a few to share.  So … here are a selection – some with comments by photographers.

The next image is of Winter Nightfire’s installation, and is gloriously colorful!

Here a picture by Laetizia “Tish” Coronet, who writes:

Statues by Kobalt Bigbear. I was impressed by the simple but well executed way this plot suggests space.

And oh miracle, this one uploaded without the funky lines which so often mean I have to run them through Photoshop. This is “raw” from the viewer, but with a preset which worked best here to obtain the chiaroscuro.

And don’t forget that SL9B celebrations will be happening across the grid! Here’s an image from one of them – and exciting installation by the artist Cherry Manga, which is located on SL9B By Us2.

SL9B Community Celebration – Pictures of the Day: Prepare to get wet!

One of the innovations of this year’s Birthday celebrations is the water sims.  The beautiful all-mesh lake stage is one part of these – the other is some wonderful exhibits that exist above and below the water – examples of which form our two photos of the day.

This is the Safe Waters Foundations, a community of mermaids and mermen who are displaying a magic undersea world in their mermaid pond. And if you visit them in Gala, you’ll be able to meet mermaids and mermen from all over Second Life.

SL9B Community Celebration – Pictures of the Day: There’s so much to see!

It’s becoming harder and harder to choose just a couple of photos of the day, with some many wonderful images on the Flickr group now.  Do go and take a look – it’s exciting ro see so many things coming together!

Today, therefore, there’s several photos to enjoy …

First of all, Uccello Poultry’s beautiful Lesbos – Uccello is working so hard as an Estate Assistant, helping people find their plots and settle in, setting names and music streams … but she still found time to build a stunning exhibit of her own.

Then there’s a lovely preview of her slot at the water sim by Shiran Sabra:

And, from KT Syakumi, here’s a shot of something strange and more than a little worrying being excavated in the desert … I think we’ll be hearing more about this!

And finally, an image from Daniel Voyager with an owl’s sneak preview of a pretty amazing cake! (And I think I saw a dragon doing an explorataory fly-over last night … )

SL9B Community Celebration – Pictures of the Day: Supporting one another as we create something amazing

Today’s first Picture of the Day comes from Eliza Wierwight and is a picture of her own stunning creation, a symphony in black and gold (although, when you see it, you’ll realise that there’s more than that!).  And there are other elements to this as well, unseen in this picture – you’ll have to go and take a look for yourselves when the Birthday opens!

SL9B Community Celebration – Pictures of the Day: A Slice of Africa

Today’s Picture of the Day comes from DrFran Babcock, and is one of a series she has taken exploring the rapidly filling sims.  She reports that this Africa is animated too – let’s hope any lions they might have don’t get peckish. It’s not the best way of reducing lag, after all, to eat the visitors (although the Angel of Death may disagree).  You can check out DrFran’s photos – and those from others – on our Flickr stream – SL9B Community Celebration.

SL9B Community Celebration – Pictures of the Day: Secrets of the SL9B

Today’s Picture of the Day is a lovely hidden garden created for the event, and photographed by the owner, Zinia Quan

Zinia says she still has some final tweaking to do, but already the garden is a stunning beautiful and peaceful haven.  You need to watch out for the snake, though, once you step outside (you can’t miss it!).

And KT has a picture to prove that SL9B is laying on every amenity for the visiting public …

SL9B Community Celebration – Picture of the Day: Meet the People (the multi-coloured ones)

Today’s Picture of the Day comes from Silverfox Rainbow, who has caught this intriguing image of multi-coloured people (and some interesting building going on in the background too.  Greek pillars?  Floating pavilions?  I want to see more … and that, of course, is what the Birthday is all about … seeing more and more of what Second Life has to offer!

SL9B Community Celebration – Picture of the Day: The Soaring Lake Stage

Today’s Picture of the Day comes from Harlequin Rhode, who has been out and about taking a wealth of pictures of the burgeoning builds, including this awesome shot of the lake stage. As she says: “This stage takes up most of the sim!”

The Lake Stage, by the way, is constructed in mesh.  If you’re building with mesh too, why not get involved in our Mesh Day?
