Luke and The Binary Sunset
This is quite a major alert in the GeekDom World
…What if Star Wars, the best story ever! Actually happened in a 1980′s High School? Well the über creative Denis Medry
(creator of the Batman Rockabilly Universe
series) has done just that in these wonderful illustrations of the high school adventures of Luke, Han, Leia, Chewy, Vader, and the rest of the crew.
You can almost visualise the movie in the style of Grease or even Back to the Future with Robert Zemeckis behind the lens instructing a young Luke Skywalker played by Michael J. Fox to ‘Use the Force Luke’.
Control, control, you must learn control!
No. *I* am your father.

Enough of this! Vader, release him!
Yoda & Prof Obi Wan Kenobi
Punch it Chewie
He made a fair move. Screaming about it can’t help you.
R2D2 and The Stolen Plans
C3P0 abd R2D2
Vader and His Troops ..plus Boba
Darth Vader. Only you could be so bold.
Scoundrel? Scoundrel? I like the sound of that.
Han Solo & Chewbacca
Han Shoots First …poor Greedo
Jabba Palpatine & Tarkin
Lando Calrissian and Greedo
Han old buddy! so good to see you
Oh. They’ve encased him in Carbonite.

This Medry guy has some serious talent, which I’d pay good money to buy his Graphic Novel of The Star Wars 80’s High School or The Rockabilly Batman Universe… here’s hoping some publisher will give him an advance to realise his vision.

Great theme this week for the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge ‘MY Neighbourhood’ … but I thought, why show just a few shots of My Neighbourhood, but instead show you the ENTIRE surroundings where I live in the form of a Interactive Virtual Panorama. The shot was taken on top of a Clock Tower in East Leeds which is part of my Clock Tower Trilogy (part 2 coming soon) I’ll tell you more about my experience taking this image then, and how I put it all together…but for now, enjoy My Neighbourhood.
It seems the onset of spring is slightly on hold and humdudgeon is now set in with the return of the winter weather or as the press are now calling it ‘A Siberian Spring’, but not to be disheartened, it provided me with another photo opportunity, this time to catch an early morning blizzard as it approached Temple Newsam on my way to work.
Is it me or does the shot above remind you of a scene from a CS Lewis novel like The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, slightly expecting Mr Tumnus to come prancing around the corner…That would have been fun 🙂

What a wonderful series of typographical ‘minimalist’ posters in aid of Science Day in India that Kapil Bhagat has created to commemorate famous Astronomers and Scientist, such a simple but very effective creative idea and execution.

Lost in the Detail, this was the fabulous theme laid down for this weeks WordPress Photo Challenge, but it was one I didn’t want to just use existing photos I’d taken, but instead actual go on a ‘hear & now’ shoot with the camera, trying to capture things lost in the detail on what was a lovely warm (9 Degrees) Spring like Saturday, both in my garden and walking around the grounds of Temple Newsam with ❤Wifey and the dog.
One of my favourite shots is the last one in my Gallery, were I unknowingly captured a bee collecting nectar from one of Springs first flowering crocus…. Something that could quite easily have gotten Lost in the Detail.
