365 Days of stormtroopers

Storm Trooper 365

The photographer (Stéfan) of this Flickr photo set decided to add one photo a day, 365 days in a row, of Storm Trooper action figures in all kinds of unique situations. Some of funny, others are heartwarming, while others just seem like a couple of action figures, you know, hanging out.

While this idea at first glance seems a little dry and without merit except to the uber Star Wars fan, upon closer examination the action figures really do seem to come to life.

Posed inquisitively when faced with a situation similar to above; hugging each other on the beach as manly, rebel fighting comrades sometimes will do; looking scared when faced with a wookie action figure; all emotions are conveyed without even seeing their faces. You can just tell that they’re thinking “How in the Force did I get into this mess?”

You can see the full photo set (and subscribe for updates) at Stéfan’s feed over on Flickr.

Recent photos have been released regarding some early publicity shots of “Alice In Wonderland” as seen through the lense of Tim Burton. Amazing.

Point and click at 70 mph

Underpass Gallery

While I normally shoot photos with a slightly older Canon SLR, I have recently discovered that I actually own a point and click Canon Powershot SD850 IS.

Okay, “recently discovered” might be a bit inaccurate, but up to now I haven’t really had the need (or the inclination) to use a point-and-click camera. I’ve loved my SLR since I first laid eyes on it almost five years ago and I have strong feelings about the quality of work that it has produced so far.

on the road

Mobility: A double edged sword.

I’ll be traveling for the next few days, but will be in communication as my airport connection and cell phone reception allows. For the time being the above is a pretty good example of my mobile workstation.

In an effort to continue to supply creative material for this blog that we have just unleashed, I will be uploading a new gallery of shots from the road, with a new post to follow.
