Every time I look at this picture, the magical world of Hogwarts from the Harry Potter series comes alive in front of my eyes. The many shades of gray and green, the creepers hugging the trees, the mist wafting through the trees, and the stillness – it is all so mysterious and ethereal. And to top it all, I always sense a presence in this image – perhaps Dobby, the house elf is hiding behind one of those dark trees, mischievously thinking of some trick to lure me. Or maybe he’s just hiding there, trying to make up his mind about the curious visitor’s motive.
Dobby, if it is so, please come out and reveal yourself. I am good. Perhaps not as good as Harry and his friends, but not as bad as the Malfoys either. Come.
