“Anything You Can Do…”- London Sims Pics and their Real Life equivalents by Jas (Blog 235)

February 21, 2014 • Culture & Community, News

Well, blog readers, having recently discovered that I am allowed to use real-life London pics, I decided to look through some of my Second Life ones and see how they matched up to the originals. The words of Irving Berlin best illustrate the conclusions I came to:-

“Anything you can do,
I can do better.
I can do anything
Better than you.”

By the way, these are just the Second Life pictures I had stored on my computer anyway, so I feel another blog coming on soon, in which I`ll re-create some real London pictures more accurately-including the Mayfair, Kensington and Knightsbridge sims.

Didn`t we do well? Attention to detail and determination to replicate the real London are both things taken very seriously by our builders. Come and see for yourself how beautiful our virtual sims can be.
