Posted to Flickr on 12 August 2009. Part of the Stormtroopers series.

What is this?

I was "tagged" recently, and this photo is my response.

This is how it goes. List 10 things that your friends may or may not know about you, but that are true. Tag ten people and be sure to let them know they’ve been tagged (a quick message will do). Don’t forget to link back to the person who tagged you. Post a picture in your stream with the 10 facts and list your tagged people

Where are your ten facts?

Right here:

  1. I am married and have two kids, a boy and a girl.

  2. I really do go by "JD" in my daily life. The initials "J.D." are a tradition in my family. My father’s initials are "J.D.," and his father’s name was "J.D."

  3. I have lived in Texas my whole life and currently reside in the Austin area.

  4. I have done website design and development professionally since 1995. I enjoy the intersection of creative visuals and technology.

  5. Despite what you might think, Star Wars is not my favorite movie of all time, although I am obviously a big fan. The real number one movie on my list is Back to the Future.

  6. The inspiration for my Little Dudes series came from my son.

  7. The majority of the photos in my photostream were taken with a point-and-shoot camera. I only recently acquired a used SLR, and now I’m learning about that world.

  8. My setups are frequently very low-tech. I often use flashlights, paper towels, colored tissue paper, poster board, and a broken computer monitor.

  9. I feel like I came to photography (and Flickr) late in the game. I’ve always taken pictures, but I never had much passion for photography until recently.

  10. I’m so grateful to those who view, fav, and comment on my photos. Whenever I am telling someone about how the Internet helps create positive, supportive, and inspiring communities, you are my best example.

Stormtroopers: the Empire’s finest.

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.

Selected imagery background information.


The stormtrooper is the elite soldier of the Imperial forces in the Star Wars universe. They typically wear white armor and helmets and are armed with blasters. Imperial stormtroopers were first depicted in the film Star Wars (1977). As shown in the Star Wars prequels Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones (2002) and Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith (2005), the stormtroopers were preceeded by the clone troopers, an army of soldiers cloned from the bounty hunter Jango Fett and loyal to Emperor Palpatine. In many ways stormtroopers are an iconic symbol of the Galactic Empire.
