Very well photographed as to lighting, etc. and some of these were really cute! After a while, it got repetitive, so I quit, but he has a LOT of stormtrooper pics.

This sounded like a really good idea, but turns out meh. Stormtroopers with macbooks? Not whimsical.

The bikes, motorcycle and accident scene were cool though, and more of what I thought this set would be. It would be neat to the Stormtroopers in a medieval Lego set or at some of the other classic, non space Lego settings.

he's very good. I've tried doing this, and lack the patience and skill to pull off some of these shots. The positioning is more subtle than I realized at first.

There ARE many of these shots, so I guess practice makes perfect?
Thanks, though, I will go through these more when I out of work.

I have a feeling there's real gems in that sea of pix.

Yes. I thought this, too. Their slightly turned head when they are carrying the ladder, that sort of thing.

What's with flickr comments lately? It seems packed with stupid award links. Is it a type of spam?

Once again, affirming my belief that Apple is an Evil Empire.

There was nothing funny about Imperial rule. It disgusts me that people make jokes about a system that destroyed whole worlds, laid waste to many more, and killed trillions of sophonts in its horrifying quest for power. To say nothing of the hundreds of millions of clones that were brought into the worlds only to be warped by the Imperial military and thrown away.

Everyone who has ever stared down the barrel of a blaster into those dark lenses knows full fucking well that they were never a joke, and never cute. So, thanks. Looks like I'm back to waking up screaming every night for a while.

I agree wholeheartedly with ROU_Xenophobe. If any of you people realized how many Bothan spies were tortured & killed to get us these cute lego photos, you wouldn't be so quick to snark.

I love this time-lapse video of a construction site.

Oh my, Lego + Star Wars = ABSOLUTE LURVE.

And here I was thinking I should do something productive with my time. *toddles off to spend the rest of the day faffing around with them Lego Star Wars sets*
