Today's entry is for my cousin Karl's son, Kelten. Apparently Kelten is a HUGE Star Wars fan. If memory serves me correctly, when we were kids, my brother and sister and I, Karl, his older brother Peter, and our cousins John and Arlene all went to see Star Wars: Return of the Jedi in some theater in Salt Lake City. (I can see the theater in my minds' eye, but I can't remember where it is.) Karl, as I recall, was a pretty big Star Wars fan. It would seems he's passed that fan-love on to his son.
This is a bobblehead Darth Vader I picked up the other night at Target. My original plan was to mount it on the dashboard of my car, but I haven't gotten 'round to that so I brought it into the house the other day. Last night, I set it up in the window ledge, turned off all the lights, got out my laser pointer, and starting messing with time exposures. This is one of the images I got out of my goofing around. The backdrop is the tree in the backyard with light supplied by the street lamp in the alley. The tower to the right is one of the Metropolitan Police Department's dispatch towers.
May the Force Be With You, Kelten!
