When summer becomes one with autumn. Pure Beauty.
Ever since Hobbits and their way of life was introduced in the novels of J.R.R. Tolkien and presented in the films of Peter Jackson, who looks like one of the Hobbits and with whom I share the same date of birth, I was interested in that type of houses that were introduced by Hobbits; what was the feeling like and were they comfortable as they look I wonder, after all, Hobbits are peaceful being and to them comfort is very important.
In New Zealand, where they recorded both trilogies, the Lord of the Rings and the Hobbits, and I hold my fingers cross to make the trilogy of the Vilins, the film industry joined their forces with tourism and so the scene stage become one of the most known and visited touristic places, where you can re-enact life of Hobbits and join their special celebration as on 22. September is International Hobbit Day. Because New Zealand is not next to my door I visited similar place in a region that I live. And it is really a pleasant feeling when you enter a space like that, it is warm and cold at the same time, and above all magical, as it is expected from the world of fairy tales.
There is nothing sweeter than meeting by coincidence two little dwarfs, that bring laughter and joy. That was the case in this two little girls. First I saw two little dogs, and I comment how scared they look.
»They look always like that,« said the girl, about 11 years old.
The more braved dog approached me and soon the other dog followed.
»They are boy and girl and are a couple. But she is also his mother,« said girl.
»What?« I asked astonished.
»Well, she gave birth to him, and when she was in the mating season, she becomes his partner as well, so that’s why she is his mother and girlfriend.«
We look at each other in astonishment, and another little girl nodded.
We introduced to each other and the girls say they are friends and distant cousins; and while they observe my camera that I was holding in my hand, I asked them if they want to have a photo with their dogs. Girls were joyful about it and I called their parents.
They said they preferred to play in the woods and showed me their corners in the forest; beautiful paths and streams, and the spruce tree on which the father of one of them climbed.
»When I grow up I will be a veterinarian,« says the first girl, and the other girl added that she will have an animal shop next to her friend veterinarian office. And I thought, if we could only keep this note that we had inside as children, where the whole world is in the palm of your hand and whatever you want, you can manifest it.
Once upon a time, there was a small village where the sweetest house was. That would be the start of a fairy tale, based on a true story and this is how it looks like.
I enjoy time with children, in their playfulness and curiosity, especially in debates on how they see and perceive the world and the issues that they are learning. Like their ability of imagination and I like their honesty; children tell what they think and ask what they would like to know. Simple. During photo session of this three little fairies, their curiosity came in a shape of thousand and one various and direct questions, that I never really thought about it. Questions were so direct and precise that secret agents could learn new techniques of investigation from this three little beautiful sisters.
