Silly Saturday: Preciousss plaything

It was August 31, 2004, and my job had taken me to New Zealand.  I’d just flown into Wellington from Auckland and had been watching from my window as we taxied toward our gate, when what, to my wondering eyes, should appear, but a much-bigger-than-life Gollum-Aug04figure of Gollum, reaching for the ring!  As I walked from our arrival gate to the main terminal, I kept a close watch out the windows I was passing and was rewarded with this clear view.  It’s not as sharp as I might have liked, thanks to shooting at an angle through the tinted windows, but I think it came out pretty well, and what a grand memory!
