Friday was really sunny and beautiful, so I decided it was a good day to go for a walk in my favourite forested park, and snap some nature shots (with my GOOD camera this time, unlike last time). I've been visiting this park since I was ten years old, and it always held a certain enchanting quality for me. I always knew that Faeries lived there (and one day this summer I will take you to my favourite, most enchanting spot with the video camera!).
When I was about ten or eleven, my two best friends, Katie and Cathleen and I, used to dress up as gypsy Faeries, and prance around the park dressed in long skirts, and poorly sewn together gypsy inspired tops. We wandered through the brush, as faeries, trying to hide from mortal eyes... Ah! I miss those days.
I hope these photos inspire your own imagination to conjure Faeries and Otherworlds.
|Stay on the forest path, lest ye be taken by the Fair Folk|
|Excalibur's resting place?|
|A little log welcomes you to step off the path, and take a seat...|
|I love these little bushy growths on the sides of trees. Perfect Faerie houses.|

|I think these may be Salmon Berry leaves. A tasty treat for humans and Fae alike.|
|A fuzzy little bud. Faeries collect this for their bedding, of course.|
|The twisted, gnarled, moss covered branches appear quite foreboding.|
|Close up of the moss covered branches. The moss looks a lot like hair draping down|
from the branches. Creepy, yet very cool.
|The remnants of a tree stump, likely caught on fire due to lighting strike.|
|Last but not least, my favourite picture in the bunch! I love the hints of blue,|
and the mysterious atmosphere. Very enchanting! :)
Thanks for joining me on my walk in the woods. :)
Part two is up tomorrow! Stay tuned!
