TS4’s “Take Photo” Option is Awesome

I used to do street photography as a hobby, so naturally, when I discovered there was a photography skill in TS4’s Get To Work, I was stoked. So I gave a bunch of my sims cameras and sent them out to take random street photos.

I dunno what it was about 2017, but this was the year I decided to move my sites. First I moved my old Sims 1 website to The Sims Depot. Now I’ve moved my old Blogger site to WordPress.

If you followed me on Blogger, please update your bookmarks because I won’t be posting on that site anymore.
