Great Second Life Destinations: The Town of Calico, A Forgotten and Abandoned Wasteland


The parcel description for Calico tells us that the town was abandoned many years ago, and that no one knows exactly why. The area looks like it was hit by a bad earthquake -- but this alone would not explain why everyone was in such a rush to leave. The destination itself is very atmospheric and a pleasure to photograph.  The collapsed bridge has towers that are reminiscent of The Golden Gate Bridge; you can see them in the next photo below. This is a very atmospheric destination and highly recommended for a visit.

I used the Thalia Light 01 Windlight Sky Setting to get this grey foggy effect. I also sharpened the images a bit to bring out the detail and applied a slight Lomo effect to each image.
