Flickr a Day 81: ‘Teddy is Biking’

Star Wars fans, have I got a treat for you. The stormtrooper collection from Kristina Alexanderson is to die for. She presents more than 1,300 photo poses in her main album of them, but I am partial to the “Stormtrooper Father and Son” collection, from which today’s selection comes.

Iconic is the only way to describe these photos, which are realistically posed to evoke emotion. I could have chosen any one as today’s pick. Self-titled “Teddy is Biking” makes the Day, for the pose, particularly Daddy Stormtrooper’s arms and hands, and vantage point. Kristina’s posted photos are much lower resolution than what you typically see in my Flickr series, but the closeup perspective compensates.

Kristina, who is from Stockholm, Sweden, posed and captured the pic on July 25, 2012, using Nikon D800 and 105mm prime lens. Vitals: f/9, ISO 160, 1/100 sec. She joined Flickr in December 2009. She blogs (in Swedish, of course) and maintains two very different photo sites (here and here).
