Fairy Tales

Resin Angels is having a monthly photo challenge. January's is Fairy Tales. With one day to go inspiration finally struck. We watched the Norwegian film 'Troll Hunter' at the weekend and these are shots from the film. It is about exactly what it says-a troll hunter. He is followed and filmed by a group of student film makers who are increasingly amazed to find that trolls do exist. They have territories they are allowed to stay in but this has not been happening so the hunter is busy. I enjoyed it-it was a funny twist on fairy tales. There was a great Billy Goats Gruff scene. But, as the troll hunter points out, fairy tales are for kids, the reality is much more scary.

I knew it. I told everyone I'd seen one. But the gnomes chased him away.

Trolls, not sure I like the idea they are real. I was always very scared of them as a child.

Don't worry, I think they only live in Norway-and Idaho with Leenie!

In Iceland I was told that roads are sometimes built to avoid the homes of the Hidden Folk!

Hee hee - trolls are as scarce as Loch Ness monsters and Bigfoot (I suppose that should really be Bigfeet?)
