Time flies when you’re de-cluttering!

My autographed photo of Daenerys Targaryen, one of the major characters in the Game of Thrones series of books (played by British actress, Emilia Clarke) finally arrived from the collectibles dealer in France.  I am now reading book 5 and have watched the first season of the HBO adaptation.  I’ve loved the sci-fi and fantasy genre since I was 11 years old and after more than 25 years of reading good/bad and downright boring books, I am really impressed by the detailed portrayal of characters in the series.

Emilia Clarke is also becoming one of my favorite actresses.  It takes some guts to do some of the scenes she did for the role, but mostly I like the gentle way she portrays the character and also how she subtly displays the maturity of Daenerys’s spirit.  I’m looking forward to seeing the next few seasons of the show!

I found a lovely deep beaten aluminium frame at a French decor shop in Mall of the Emirates which was the perfect size for her photograph.  I like the colour of the photo itself, and this is one where her autograph is properly visible (unlike some of the other websites I viewed).
