A friend in another forum asked for some pictures of my bookshelves, and I thought you might like to see them too. I've had problems loading them here, so I've put them up at http://s223.photobucket.com/albums/dd262/wellinghall/Bookshelves/

Mark, I will answer this when a check something out which I've not had a clear answer on.


"I have a question -

>Festival in the Shire is a three day event that will cater to the diverse interests of collectors, academics and those who simply enjoyed the books and films. It will be held in the heart of ‘Tolkien country’, Machynlleth the ancient historical capital of Wales, with its rich Celtic traditions and stunning location in the hills.<

Can I respectfully ask - in what way is Machynlleth 'the heart of Tolkien country?"


Mark, we are still waiting for your answer to garm's question!!!!

Great, thanks for that, Trotter. But can that really be Simon? He looks just as tall as his grandfather.


I'm going to have to point you towards a Wikipedia article on "Perspective", take note of the first point below

Simon is a distance in front of his Grandfather.

The two most characteristic features of perspective are that objects are drawn:

* Smaller as their distance from the observer increases
* Foreshortened: the size of an object's dimensions along the line of sight are relatively shorter than dimensions across the line of sight
