In the northwest of Middle-earth

Christopher Tolkien, the youngest son of the author J. R. R. Tolkien,
reported an amusing episode, which might be much thought provoking...
On one memorable occasion a small group had gathered in Lewis's rooms
(by the way, C.S. Lewis was the author of The Chronicles of Narnia)
and were listening to Tolkien reading the last instalment of The Lord of the Rings.
They were sitting there puffing on pipes and sipping tea
when Hugo Dyson, who had been lounging on a sofa
and growing increasingly bored with the proceedings,
suddenly exclaimed:
"Oh, fuck! Not another elf!"
Iím collecting here some pictures I create with my photos and textures.
Itís a relaxing way to play a little with fancy in gloomy and dark winter days.
Itís a wink of complicity to a certain surely evocative,
but maybe a bit too serious world of legends.
I just hope that none of my casual visitors will feel like shouting:
ďOh my, not another texture!Ē
