Pinoy Hideout has opened a very attractive build for the Summer of 2015 called Mesh Avenue. Although the primary focus of the build are ladies fashion stores, those interested in visiting and photographing attractive Second Life destination should pay a visit. Mesh Avenue is a winding shopping street which makes it's way up a rocky outcrop by an attractive harbor.
I was reminded of the beautiful seaside villages on the Amalfi Coast in Italy which I had the fortune once to take a sailing trip through. The effect, which does a good job of maximizing retail floor space in a dramatic manner, is an excellent solution for getting away from a parceled out retail event. In fact, the overall build is one of the most attractive I have seen for a commercial Second Life region and will, by itself, attract visitors.
There is also a very inviting beach area at Mesh Avenue where visitors can just hang out at and enjoy photographing opportunities. I especially liked the hanging shark by the surfboards and lifeguard stand; a touch of Southern California always adds some fun to a seaside destination.
Mesh Avenue is a very beautiful destination; those who seek to introduce some revenue opportunities to help defray the cost of operating a region would especially benefit from a visit. I also assume that any of our female readers who enjoy Second Life fashion would also be interested in seeing Mesh Avenue. I highly recommend a visit.
I used Windlight sky setting [TOR] MIDDAY - Nostalgika in these images which I favor for its warm golden light, which I particularly like using for autumnal photography. Nostalgika comes as an option in the Firestorm Viewer.

I made some watercolors off my photography from Spring 2014 which you can see here:
