|Kaya and Ben Angel at Angel Manor|
Kaya Angel, the founder and architect of the 9-sim Angel Manor and Rose Theater complex agreed to pose for some photographs at Angel Manor. Kaya, whom I am fortunate enough to have had as a Second Life friend for over six years, is unquestionably one of the greatest architect builders and arts impresarios in Second Life-- perhaps the greatest. His builds are incomparably grand and breathtakingly beautiful and unlike anything else on the grid.
The interiors of Angel Manor are simply some of the most gorgeous and impressive ever built in virtual reality, and Kaya should be justly proud of his achievements. You might never know all this about Kaya if you meet him in person, since he is so friendly and approachable, and very modest considering all he has done. I probably am embarrassing him by writing this here.
Kaya sells some gorgeous prefabricated mansions and other structures, and attractive home furnishings which you can see throughout Angel Manor and in a retail area on the lower level of the complex. I find his offerings to be very well priced and have purchased many for my own use.
Note: Kaya's handsome dog Ben also posed in the top two photographs of the exterior of Angel Manor.

All photography in this post uses Windlight Sky Setting Bree's Appleblossom, which I prefer for its bright and clear blue light and lack of heavy shadows. This setting comes preinstalled in Firestorm and other viewers.
