To celebrate the launch of the Complete Star Wars Saga on BluRay, the iconic BT Tower in London held a launch party and attempted to light the tower up as if it were a lightsabre.
As a lightsabre it failed pretty hard, and as I’m also not a huge Star Wars fan I thought it would be fun to turn this into something more appropriate. The beam of light being thrown out seemed, to me, more like a beacon calling for help than a futuristic laser sword, and so I thought a Batman symbol would be a little more apt for it.
Saying that, I enjoyed the fact they tried to do something new and fun, and of course it gave me a decent photo opportunity.
Friday already! I hope everyone has a great weekend; thanks for all of your comments and retweets this week, appreciated.
I was up a few high buildings over the bank holiday weekend, but didn’t seem to take too many shots up there. I seem to be spending more and more time enjoying the locations I visit and less time snapping anything and everything in sight.
For this shot I had an idea of what I wanted to achieve and, apart from donning a cape a mask, managed to get pretty close to it.
I’m not too deluded though. I know I’m not Batman, nor a super hero of any other kind. He is one of my favourites though simply because he’s a ‘superhero’ without having all of the actual superpowers that others possess. Spider-man has his web thing and is quite jumpy, Superman can fly, has super strength and x-ray vision etc.
Batman is just a man with a cape and some really cool tech and a bit of ninja skills. We could all have that if we had the funds and time to invest in it.
