Elizabeth and Mordor

Elizabeth and Mordor

I grew up 10 miles from Elizabeth and drove through it many times in the 60s. It was a very ugly place. I read Lord of the Rings aloud to my sons, and pictured Mordor as a horrible ugly place. Yet these were the environments that Oscar faced through his life. In my photo Sauron hovers in the air watching over Elizabeth.
