Ah, it would make sense that Elrond packed and moved to Alaska - remote, rural, rugged.

And I'll send that ship a sailing as soon as you send some shillings (for shipping). ;)

That would be too optimistic a stance for me. :D

And it is the name of a filming company that was producing a movie nearby.

Pittsburgh. I like the snow, but the hills and bridges make traveling entertaining, especially when some municipalities take a passive "all natural" approach to snow removal. ;)

LaurinquŽ, I am *so* jealous (as I live in the east side of Mordor)! Those pictures are absolutely stunning. Thank you for sharing them.

Thanks, I guess. Not sure if mountains, as to hills, would be better or worse. What really creeps me out is the lack of anything - hills or mountains - in the horizon.

And it's normal, at least...

The Party Tree

Yes, I know that it only fits the description of Bilbo's Party Tree in that it is a tree, still every time I drive by this tree in the fall, I cannot but help to think of Bilbo's last Shire party.

For Father's Day, I received another homemade T-shirt, and was more pleased with that than a plasma screen TV. These homemade shirts, I must also note, are much better than ties, which rarely see...

Actually, I would agree, as in the PotD, what I see is in this case not 'what I see.' Completely illogical, but there it is.



Maybe, but it may be all in my head, as I think that the neighbors...

Both pictures were taken from my car, and so they might not be the best. Plus I didn't want to be seen, as the 'truth' if asked why I was taking the pictures might have landed me in the loony bin.

One note that I'm in (almost) total agreement with Peter Jackson is where he states something like "we strove to get the scenery right."

Some of the places that he filmed were straight out of my...

That's cool. Might be random chance, but surely there are a few Tolkienists out there who've influenced names, etc - kinda like (Pittsburgh) Steeler fans who live in LA.

Thanks for the replies.

Around here we have these huge sycamore trees that I picture as examples of the 'Party Tree' - especially when they stand along. However, the areas around the same do not...

Do these places always make you think about ME, or is it when ME is on your mind (or when you're reading the books) you look at the location and think (for example) Lothlorien?

In the examples...

I really hope that it's not just me being a little too geeked out about ME. Note that I've left out places that as a teenager I'd named as ME locations just because they have one attribute in common.
