J.R.R. Tolkien and his wife Edith Mary Tolkien Everyone had left some precious things of their own: flowers, jevellery, books, notes... even rings (that pink ball head is mine, did it my self and it hanged on my purse couple years until it found a new peaceful home in this cemetery).
Wolvercote Cemetery in Oxford, England Photo by
After visiting there in spring 2012 I had an inspiration. Compare if you want [link]
One ring to rule them all One ring to find them One ring to bring them all And in the darkness bind them.
------------------ My new finger art
I used coloured cotton, some felt in green and white, orginal swords/axe from miniature lord of the rings figures, some paper for gandalf, felt tips,... just the arms/hands are digital added (and the headline of course).
This is the second version of the photo. I used some comments i received from the photo and made it better. I already posted it on another photography page and i've received many great comments on this version. The staff has more details visible. in the older version it was too dark on the lower section and too bright at the edges. Now it's much more balanced. Illumination on the books seems better too. There are no more over exposed brightness. The light is much more balanced over the books as well. The composition is much batter also. In the previous version there were too many "writings" in the photo and it would distract people from the main theme of the photo: the staff. I also used an advice i got, as i had a red and blue book in the previous photo, i was told to insert a green book to the picture and therefore unify the 3 main colous (Red, Green, Blue - RGB)
Used some old books i had around plus the description sheets that came with Saruman's Staff and the Anduril sword. The books are most in french or portuguese. Sorry about that No old english books. Only one about Edgar Allan Poe, but that one isn't old. You can see it on the picture. It's the green book on the upper-center spot.
And yes, the staff is real. It's hung on my wall
I've been thinking in changing this for a wallpaper. Opinions are most wellcome.
Guys, what can I say, this location was perfection.
Edit: GUYS OH MY GOD. I'm SCREAMING!!! I never, ever, EVER thought this would make the Daily Deviation - in fact, I never thought this was gonna happen in my whole life. And I got so much positive feedback and constructive criticism for it. THANK YOU!!! Seriously, it made me almost cry from happiness. I probably will never get over it, so here is it again: A HUGE THANK YOU TO THE PERSON WHO SUGGESTED THIS PICTURE!!!!
