2011-01-13 Is This Toothless?

I have a friend who is extremely good at balloon modelling, and so we had a go at shooting a few photographs of his models this evening.

This fellow instantly reminded me of "Toothless", the dragon from Cressida Cowell’s book "How To Train Your Dragon" I’m not talking about the recently-made animated travesty of the books, I mean the original. Or best of all, David Tenant’s reading of the story as an audiobook.

Anyway, as far as I am concerned, THIS is the real Toothless. I almost thought of asking to take him home, to make a time-lapse movie. But I just don’t think I would have the time…
