I spotted this bridge troll in Seattle. It looks like it has given up eating billy goats (not many billy goats were it lives now) and now eats mainly VW bugs. It is hard to get a good photo of Bridge trolls. It is usually kind of dark under bridges and trolls are rumored to eat just about any thing, including Photographers. You are supposed to treat them like a bear and drop your camera. This is why most real Photographers don't make out.

I made a small mistake and posted the wrong file. So here is the file I meant to post.

Here is a bridge on the Isle of Barra that might provide a good home for your troll. As you can see, it will accommodate all three sizes of Billy Goat Gruff at once - Starter, main course, and sweet. I remarked uponthis at the timeas we trip-trapped over it.

Sorry about the quality, folks -Video8 to VHS to TV to digicam to PSP7 Moire pattern removal to resizing to jpeg compression. The weather was too unpromising for me to carry the still camera. I'll go back & do it properly one day.

If you are ever in Seattle, Bcoultry, you will find the troll under the north end of the Aurora Bridge which is north of Queen Anne neighborhood which is north of the Space Needle.

Just follow your nose :-)

Would truly like to take a trolley to go trolling for trolls. Maybe sell some seashells by the seashore while I'm at it.

This troll has grown a little to big to fit under those bridges.

This is only one of the trolls that live in this area. There is a smaller one somewhere, I just don't know were.

I've said it before and i'll say it again. You do everything bigger in the US compared to us Brits. We don't have Trolls like you at all. In fact we don't have any indigenous to the UK.

This one is a Transylvanian, who got the taste for life here and stayed .

I was very lucky to catch him !!
