Remember that empty parking hall a little while ago, the one I photographed my X-wing in? Well, it wasn't completely empty after all, this old thing was there too. I don't know who owns it, no registration plate or anything to give a clue. It's been there a while, I think. Maybe the owner just lost the keys, it happens.

I'd like to own one of these wacky machines some day, even though I don't think I could fit inside. I have long legs and the cockpit is very small.

Anyway, if you own that thing and are reading this, please let me know, I'm interested in buying it.

Parking Hall X

The Worldcon 2017 launches in a few hours in Helsinki, Finland. This is the first time Worldcon has traveled to Finland. I am going to get my pass tomorrow morning.

To make things a little easier for tomorrow, I went and parked my X-wing to the Helsinki Fair Center (Messukeskus) parking hall tonight. There wasn't much room for it but I managed to wiggle it in. So, if you come in with a car, I'm sorry for any inconvenience, please find an alternate route in, this blocks the driveway.

Ps. That really is the parking hall, I shot this tonight as the Worldcon crew were inside the main building prepping for tomorrow. :D

Illuminated Vol.2

My ride and my astromech. A maintenance stop, and a little moment of fun on ice.

Camp Eagle

My Eagle Tourer is a refurbished 1975 classic Transport model. The passenger pod is fitted with modern interior designed for light leisure travel. It bunks four, there is also a lounge and a small kitchenette. Toilet and shower took a little effort to fit in because, as you know, spaceships rarely have them, but in the end, they went in and work like a charm. Mosquito nets on doorways are a given, there is also a 100mb/s continuous broadband wi-fi.

With the Tourer, any trip is a hoot. You can fly wherever you like (bar non-flying zones) and live in the comfort of the Tourer pod. Holidays – I can't wait!

The Approach Pattern.

Deception Pass, Washington USA. I was fortunate to visit this beautiful place with +Shelly Corbett, +LEGO Wiiman and +Boris Vanrillaer in 2015. I loved it there. That was not just because of the Millennium Falcon flying below that gorgeous iron bridge, but because of the geography. Coming from a very flat land, the banks and the tide below made a lasting impression.

The Birds!

The sound of the ascending Millennium Falcon was quite loud, it scared the living daylights out of the seagulls every time.

This is a rare exception to my rule of only using elements that were exposed in camera. I added a touch of dust underneath the Falcon in Phototoshop for more convincing effect.

The Nevernight

Little known fact: the imperial walkers, AT-AT's, weren't merely assault vehicles, they were also ideal for long ground patrol missions.

Usually, if planets were needed to be monitored from the surface, probe droids would do the job. Some planets however, were a little too demanding for droids only and a ground crew was deployed.

The big hull of an AT-AT could be equipped with gear and rations for small crew for months at the time. The long patrol missions were tedious, keeping an eye on the endless monotonous landscapes for weeks could induce cabin fever to the crew. To avoid that, daily pauses were necessary and the troopers were allowed to walk outside freely.

On one of these missions TK-24/7 was accidentally left outside for the night cycle. Above the polar circle in the northern hemisphere, the sun did not go down at all. Ever! He later recalled those hours as the loveliest and loneliest hours he ever experienced.
