The days of the floating heads

Hippie Park (3)

You know what I miss? SL that works. I've got the fabulous driver bug where I can either see mesh OR atmospheric shaders/hardware skinning, and as a long-time blogger this is a PAINFUL DECISION. Which would I rather have: a pretty new mesh outfit by my partner Jackal, or nice lighting?

I decided to float around the grid for a while, taking pretty pictures of things while dressed in clothing layers. I honestly like all my old clothing layers; at least I'm more than a floating head in my own viewer when I take landscape shots. These photos are from my wander through the sim Hippie Park, a very pretty residential sim recently posted in Firestorm's editor's picks.

I definitely saw lots of floating heads around this one! Then I decided to turn down my graphics and put on one of Jackal's new dresses, photo below. It's grim taking pictures without shadows. Mesh or not, it's like 2009 all over again. Anyway, I hope everything is better in the next ATI driver update.
