Testing the Weather, Watching the Wind

Linus Gelber

Gandalf watches the music of the afternoon sun, alert to all its subtle messages, as the party approaches the barrier marking the central wilderness of Cobble Hill Park.

This picture was taken for the weekend Toys project of the Utata photo tribe. Can I just say how goofy I felt, carefully posing my little spaceships and action figures and the like in the grass of the park down the way? And then, as if that weren't bad enough, taking macro pictures of them?

This is not a good way to meet girls.

I don't buy sci-fi toys for the most part, and I didn't buy this pretty nifty Gandalf action figure either - no, I won it as a raffle prize at the 24-Hour Science Fiction Film Marathon up in Boston a couple of years ago. It's been sitting on the mantel getting dusty since then, and actually I had a pretty good time playing with it in the grass. Did I just say that out loud?
