Have you seen this photo somewhere else? Or are you using it yourself? I would love to hear from you! It's always fun to learn where my photos turn up.
This photo was taken in my kitchen using some pretty simple Gear. You might be surprised to discover how low-tech my "photography studio" really is.
This photo was posted to Flickr on 11 October 2010. The last time I checked, it had 7,494 views on Flickr.
The media type of this image is "photo." The original file type was "jpg." The photo's dimensions are 1024 x 681, giving it landscape orientation.

Duel 365 was a year-long project I started in 2010. The goal was to post one photo each day depicting a duel, usually between two pop culture figures, and asking the question, "If they had to fight, who would win?" At the request of those who came to follow the project, I also provided text descriptions of each character. One of the rules was to avoid using the same figure in multiple photos. Another challenge was that I was not allowed to use Photoshop or other advanced photo editors to create the scenes; all editing was done either in-camera or with Apple’s iPhoto software. Over 700 figures were used for the project, which believe it or not represents only a small part of my toy collection.
The Fantastic Four is a team of superheroes in comic books published by Marvel Comics. They were created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby and premiered as Marvel’s first super-team in The Fantastic Four #1. The original members of the team were given their powers in an accident in outer space, becoming the stretchy Mister Fantastic (Reed Ricards), the disappearing Invisible Woman (Sue Storm), the flaming Human Torch (Johnny Storm), and The Thing (Ben Grimm) a strong, stony monster. Frequent allies include the Silver Surfer, She-Hulk, Namor, Medusa, and H.E.R.B.I.E. The team’s costumes are blue with a number "4" on the chest. The Fantastic Four have appeared in several TV series and films, including Fantastic Four (2005).
