I’ve long been besotted with the story of the Cottingley fairies (those that two little girls supposedly photographed quite a while ago, one of which is above). So, of course, was amused to see the most recent photographs of those little beings. This time it is the Rossendale fairies as photographed by adult college lecturer John Hyatt. (One of his photographs is below).
While I don’t think I’m particularly fluffy-headed about fairies and such, I admit this lacks the magic of the Cottingley story. That one appeals to me due those two young girls’ imagination going hogwild. This business by an adult is seems something else entirely. (That said, I love to think what Elsie and Frances could have done with theirs using today’s technology!)
