Starwars ~ fine bit of whimsy

Last day of the school holidays – yes indeed! Tomorrow is the first day of a new academic year.  Surely that makes it a good excuse to share a bit of starwars fun to round off the summer holidays.

Stormtroopers 365 is a funny collection of daily shots of StarWars Stormtroopers. Some of these really are funny and the collection is a great bit of whimsey.

Stormtroopers 365 is a photo project starring TK455 and TK479, Stormtroopers in the Galactic Empire Army. The project began on April 3rd 2009 and should end on April 2nd 2010. Each day during this year, a new picture is added to the series. The pictures are posted to Flickr. This is where you need to go. You can also go to the Gallery page here but honestly that’s the same, you’ll eventually end up on Flickr. Face it, there’s no escape.

I’m having fun with Star Wars weather forecast today as well – and posted a screen shot from my iPhone to my 2010 photo blog too.

Time to dig out my StarWars mousemat I think!

Take a closer look! over there…

Google Maps are always being used by our students for all sorts of ‘regular’ things, but also for things that teachers don’t necessarily think of. In a recent project I spotted boys grabbing images from Google Maps for their presentations “Introducing You” – what better way to have images from another boys hometown.

Now I look forward to seeing what the students do with Street View on Google Maps for great global locations, now that it has been enhanced with Panoramio picture browsing.Panoramio, which was acquired by Google in 2007, is a photo-sharing site that focuses on photographs of locations and points of interest around the world.

The more popular the place you’re looking at in Street View (think Leaning Tower of Pisa or the Coliseum), the more likely you are to browse a lot of photos from Panoramio.
