Mlle ghoul's fairy tales from the shadows....reminds me of a norse myth about the fates and how they spun your life with strings. When you were to die, they would cut the string. An interesting set of tales follows the fates, and they occour in Greek myths as well.
In Celtic folklore, the Irish Leannán Sí "Barrow-Lover" is a beautiful woman of the Aos Sí (fairy folk) who takes a human lover. Lovers of the Leannán Sídhe are said to live brief, though highly inspired, lives. She is generally depicted as a beautiful Muse, who offers inspiration to an artist in exchange for their love and devotion; however, this frequently results in madness for the artist, as well as premature death.
The photo of an unknown woman shows her taking a photo in the mirror with her camera. Behind her left shoulder, what looks like another woman’s face can be made out with glowing eyes and a sinister grin.
Take a walk in an English country garden at this time of year and you never know quite what you are going to come across.
