I grew up playing the Sierra games, made in Oakhurst, Coursegold, California. The King's Quest games were rich with signs of the Californian trees, and a love of nature.
Later, coming out of Spokane Washington, there was Myst and Riven.
I grew up in a bushy suburb in Melbourne Australia, and I've always thought it'd be lovely to have a studio out in the hills.
I was recently out in the hills east of Melbourne, and I took lots of nice photos of areas where I could build my dream studio. I thought I'd post them here, kinda like a little dream journal. :)
I love this place, overlooking a big valley. This has set a sort of benchmark in my mind for what I'd be looking for. :D
And here's a bunch of other miscellaneous photos.
