I have a small circle of SL friends that I get together with when we’re both online. Several are ladies of a similar RL age, and we manage to gossip about things that are mutual reference points. Last night’s TV. Doesn’t Kate Middleton look lovely? Just everyday things. SL simply forms a visual backdrop to this workaday conversation.
Depending on the time of day I do get on, different friends may be available. One such friend, Maura, the grey-haired lady in the photos, usually turns up around lunchtimes and so we’ve often had lunch together in SL while, yes, eating lunch in different parts of the world (but the same time zone).
I decided that we’d record this by embarking on a short photo-essay, and as some of it was done ‘in the nude’, we’re naturists after all, it made me think of those bijou cafes in some naturist locations where it was entirely possible, and probably still is, to eat au naturel.
We were joined by Maura’s Spanish friend, Maz, and while the photograph evokes images of female naturists on a terrace after a nice lunch, the reality of the conversation here was Maz actually pumping us for information about places worth seeing in the UK outside London, as she’s hoping to come to the UK in August.
Maura and Maz then went on to another SL location to actually show themselves eating lunch (I wasn’t in these as the telephone rang and I got called away from SL for a while!)
