Gnome in Natural Setting
Marsh: Thanks so much for agreeing to comment on these
photographs, Reg. I think they're quite good examples.
Bakeley: Thank you. And yes, these are indeed quality
representations. Not bad at all.
So please just elaborate on what you see in each
of these. What is this photo showing?
This photograph sets the scene, as it were. Here we
have a rendition of a gnome in its natural woodland setting.
By all accounts the little scrounger appears to be enjoying
life, what with the carefree expression on its face. It's
probably on its way home after a long day of biting the
hooves of the local livestock, or perhaps it's excited
to have found some fairy mushrooms under a favorite tree.
This gnome is a bit on the large side, no doubt the unfortunate
result of decreased gnoming in the area. Be wary: This
creature is vicious through and through, and wants nothing
but to tunnel about relentlessly, spelling utter ruin
for your backyard and your ankles.
Not really, although it's worth pointing out that
the mushrooms seen in the lower-right corner of this photograph
are common sights near trees where gnomes have taken up
residence. I've eaten them before and they taste disgusting.
