Photo Friday: Troll Under the Bridge

Troll Under the Bridge in Seattle's Fremont Neighborhood
Troll Under the Bridge in Seattle's Fremont Neighborhood

Mr. Linky seems to be down this week. Please leave your links in the comments.

Seattle's Fremont Neighborhood is just far enough away from our own (both geographically and culturally) to feel like a special outing. My kids are especially delighted each time we rediscover this troll hiding under the Aurora Bridge. In addition to the troll, Fremont has lots of other offbeat public art, including a rocket ship and a statue of Lenin.

    I so love this photo, particularly the scale!

  2. Linda on May 29, 2009 at 7:13 a.m.

    Wow! That troll is really big. Good idea to have the kids with it for perspective.

    I don't see Mr. Linky so my comment link is to this week's photo: something else really big that we found along our route.

    I love this photo too! Adorable!

    I think the new baby has you just a little distracted, or that is my guess as to why Mr Linky is not there.

    Our family travel photo is cooking reindeer meet in a traditional Kota in the Swedish countryside with dear friends!

    I'm off to Italy in just under two weeks. I love the winding rural back roads -- where sheep have the right of way.
