I just became aware of this series of photographs by Cedric Delsaux even though it is now on the third and final installment. Titled The Dubai Invasion these are photos of modern day Dubai with images from the original Star Wars movies imposed. In some cases the viewer instantly zooms in on the Star Wars elements but for others like the X-Wing crashed into a demolished building it takes a second. When speaking about Dubai Delsaux says "I instantly knew that all the characters from the Star Wars galaxies would be at home here." Having never been to Dubai I can't say if it is out of this world like Hoth or Alderaan but I sure do like these pictures.

  • So cool! Perfect post for today, considering they just opened the Burj.
  • I like the first three images. Because the surprise factor seems camouflaged, causing the full impact of what's going in those images to creep up on me.
  • cool post!
