We love seeing the photos that you share on social media with the #TolkienCollection hashtag, but we’re always eager to see more. Every week, we give out new photo challenges so you can share new perspectives on your favorite items!
The theme for the week of August 24, 2015 is In My Pocket. It’s all based around that pivotal scene in J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit.
“What have I got in my pocket?” he said aloud. He was talking to himself, but Gollum thought it was a riddle, and he was frightfully upset.
Here are some questions to help give you ideas for the challenge:
- Is there an item from your Tolkien Collection that is so small that it could fit in your pocket?
- Do you own the pocket editions of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings? Do you have Tolkien’s works on your e-reader so you can reference them on the go?
- Literally, empty out your pockets! Is your love of Tolkien so strong that you carry around a piece of Middle-earth with you?
Last week’s theme was Nostalgia, and we got so many great photos from those who accepted our challenge! You can see them all together below or you could go back through last week’s #TolkienCollection posts to see them and all the other photos shared last week.
