Sorry, you didn't just walk into a dark corner on Tumblr or something... just Martin Freeman's last day of filming for The Hobbit Films!

Peter Jackson shared the picture on facebook, marking the final day of shooting for Freeman as well as the start of a final 2 weeks of all-dwarf pickup shoots. Here's what Jackson had to say about his leading halfman:

Tonight Martin Freeman finished his last shot as Bilbo Baggins. The end of an incredible two and a half years. I cannot imagine anyone else in this role - a character that Martin has nurtured and crafted with love and great skill.

We have said goodbye to our elves, humans, wizards and now the hobbit. We now enter our final 2 weeks of pick-ups, and it's wall to wall dwarves. These pick-ups have been gruelling and intense, but I'm so happy with what we've been shooting. These next two movies are going to be pretty great!

Bye Bilbo - See you in December!

And here's the non-kinja-cropped version of the header:
