Why Yes, My Backyard Does Overlook Mordor

Why do you ask?

Honest, it didn’t look this menacing in real life. But the camera sees something different than the human eye. Makes for interesting pictures.

One does not simply mow the property line to Mordor! It’s black gates are guarded by more than just dogs. There are evil WEEDS there, that never sleep. The Great Eye Webcam is ever watchful. It is a wasteland riddled with mold, pollen, and dust. The very air you breathe is a poisonous fume. Not with 10,000 landscapers could you do this… It Is Folly!!

Mark Evans @14:
No, Ohio is not Mordor. The picture was taken looking west so Mordor is clearly Indiana.

So Ohio is East of Mordor? Hmm, I think I see a Steinbeck/Tolkien mashup here.

Indiana can’t be Mordor. Not only does it not have a volcano, it doesn’t have any mountains to speak of. Doom Hill just doesn’t have the same feel.

Isengard, maybe.
