Brock's dream by Skihaas1 Brock's dream by Skihaas1
I went for a walk in the bush with my two year old, the other day. We actually did find little garden gnomes and butterflies, which seemed to be pointing down the trail, as if to help the lost find their way home. It was creepy at first, not going to lie, especially since there is nobody around the area...

It was awesome to see how excited he got at EVERYTHING in the bush... the way he said "Wow" when he would pick up a stick, or how he shook with excitement whenever he saw a new gnome... he melts my heart.

"If we all could see the world through the eyes of a child, we would see the magic in everything... "

I imagine this is what he dreamed of that night :)

This seems simple at first glance, but looks more complex the more I look at it! I Love the depth, lighting.... Hell! everything about it! Excellent is all I can say.

Beautiful!
Reminds me of the 'Worlds Largest Gnome' near my home on Vancouver Island. He's doing similar hand motions too. Very cute! :3

The gnomes are like raptors. Big obvious gnome in the open distracting the boy while a second gnome creeps up on him from the side.

What I want to know is who is this mysterious person who placed gnomes in the forest? True saint that guy. 
Great images and wonderful backstory.

This needs way more comments.  Everything about this is brilliant.  The warm colors, the haze filled with sparkles, the placement of little details.  I feel as tho I'm your little boy wandering through the woods seeing what new magical things lie ahead.  This is remniscent of stories like The Labyrinth and Where the Wild Things Are.  I find myself swept away into a whole new world where I've found friendly gnomes pointing my way and welcoming me into their world.

Is that a giant Gnome?... Isn't that an oxymoron?

Man, this captures exactly how feel wen I go for a walk in the woods with my own little boy! I love the little details like his PJ's and the trail of gnomes fading into the distance. I am honestly impressed, and a little moved, with the mood and feel of this image. Thank you!
