Stormtroopers at the Science Festival

This past weekend I got to participate in the Science Festival that was taking place in Logan’s Square off of Benjamin Franklin’s Parkway.  It was a lot of fun.  Normally, for a festival like this…I wouldn’t really have any pictures to post here on my blog.  The reason for this is that unless I get the person’s permission I simply don’t post their picture on the web. 

That being said, half way through the day….for no reason I could think of – I don’t think they were part of any of the booths, Stormtroopers showed up. 

As random as it was, the geek in me squealed in delight and ran after them to take a picture. And thus, I have a picture to share with you all. 

A gentleman seeing me snapping away offered to take a shot so I could be in one of the pictures.  So I must tell you...yes...that is the dopey smile I get when I'm super excited that you see. J

Lesson 1: Getting people consent up front for use of their pictures makes blogging easier. 
Lesson 2: I am weak when it comes to most things Star Wars.
Lesson 3: Be careful of random people who appear in the frame which can off-set a picture.


  1. Awesome! Unfortunately, they are not the droids I am looking for... :P

    Thanks for stopping by my blog at the UBP!

  2. My son used to watch Star Wars over and over and over!
    And I know what you mean about "extras" in photos; they are SO distracting!
    Thanks for stopping by today.

  3. looks like a great festival. you're lucky to take a picture with them.

  5. Who cares if it's geeky? That's awesome!

    Catch My Words

  6. Love it! My husband and I belong to this Star Wars club so we might know some of those guys or gals behind the mask. Hurray for geekdom! :)
