Steve Austin vs. Inspector Gadget (338/365)
Steve Austin: Astronaut who barely survived the crash of his spacecraft and was "rebuilt" with cutting-edge technology, making him the world’s first bionic man: better, stronger, and faster.
Inspector Gadget: Simple-minded cyborg detective who fights the criminal organization M.A.D. with a seemingly endless number of built-in gadgets such as spring-loaded legs and a telescopic neck.

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 04 December 2010. The last time I checked, it had 15,966 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.
Unless otherwise noted, the image was created by me, JD Hancock.
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.
