day thirty one: august 22, 2009.
this is the troll. he lives on troll avenue in fremont, under the aurora bridge. and yes, that is an actual vw beetle he is clutching in his left hand.
he may also be our new neighbor soon. :)
although he looks like he was made in the late 60s/early 70s, the troll was actually created in 1990, and inspired by the scandinavian folk tale, "three billy goats gruff." people come from all over the world to see the troll, and he gets a lot of community support. today was actually a public cleanup of the grassy area around the troll, which is done fairly often on a volunteer basis.
you can visit his wikipedia page to learn more! xo.
