Drive-by shooting: pictures from Digue

While Furillen seems busier than ever lately, La Digue du Braek has been going through a quiet spell. It’s an interesting Second Life dynamic, though. These sims often have a similar daily visitor count, but while Furillen seems constantly busy, often with between 10 and 15 avatars there at any one time, you’ll usually find Digue with only a handful of visitors.

People come to Furillen and hang around, sometimes for hours. Why? My guess is that it’s simply because they see other people there. They land at Digue, and often move on because … they see few other people there. As ever in Second Life, numbers attract numbers, and even though we ostensibly come to places like Furillen and Digue simply to stand around on our own, even ‘AFK’, we seem to prefer it when others are also standing around – alone – in the same place.

I talked about this over a year ago. I have no idea whether I’m right or wrong, it’s just an impression.

All of which is a fairly irrelevant way of saying that those who do dwell at Digue take nice pictures, and there have been some great images posted in the group, which has reached nearly 1100 posts from 232 members. Here are my own personal favourites from the past week or so …

One thought on “Drive-by shooting: pictures from Digue

  1. Pepa Cometa

    There are some places in second life where I love to be, even alone. Some of them, along the time I have been in second life, are Nitroglobus gallery, Chou chou, Crestwick Island, H202, Moving Islands (these two ones saddly don’t exist anymore but I spent many days at them), One Caress, Furillen and La Digue du Braek . I feel there like at home and I enjoy just looking around, feeling their special atmosphere, listening to music, and yes, also, discovering and meeting interesting and nice people too. Sometimes I talk with people and sometimes I just enjoy observing them and doing the paparazzo. The reason why I feel attracted for long is a mix of taste, ambiance, people and a misterious emotion 🙂
