In the back street next to my building, there is a little fairy that it took me a long time to notice, she’s watching who comes in. She’s a beautiful creature, well hidden between a blue water pipe and red brick wall. She must have been living here for a while….
What do you think she’s watching?

It all started when I was about 8 when my brother received a camera as a present. It fascinated me, and a year later, I won a basic camera for holiday work at school. The virus was inoculated.
I had my first SLR 18 years ago, went staight for the darkroom at Uni but decided that staying up all nights was not a good idea so I restricted myself to only taking photos after a while. I quickly jumped on the digital bandwagon and loved it straight away..

    Wonderful shot and find -i like the sand on her

  • Thanks!! I don’t want to disappoint you, but our surroundings are different – remember, Manchester, UK ;) – so not sure where the sand would be from, On the other hand, mud/muck is way more likely ;) he he he. But then you know maybe she rested in the earth for the winter and just got out of it? that would make it sound better I suppose!

    Christelle, this is lovely, and i love the story behind it….
    i think she is watching out for good deeds and kind hearts…
    and she will report back to the Queen of the Fairies
    and endow those good and kind ones with a special
    touch of fairy magic throughout their lives…

  • Oh she might just be doing that. It’s hard work in such a back street!
    thanks for your lovely commenrt! :)))
