Stormtroopers (This IS the droid we're looking for!), uh, Doctor Jones (!) and a sunset picnic spot in Terragen!

The man in the hat is back! Indiana Jones, anyone ...? We shall return to this character. Soon. 😀

This IS the droid you're looking for, apparently. The Stormtrooper armor was a 3D freebie many years ago. I don't do much with it because it's a bear to work with: doesn't fit the Michael 4 properly at all, so you spend an hour making it look right from one angle to get an okay picture. This is not 100% right, I know, I know ... but it's as good as it's going to get, and -- enjoy!

And that's the kind of sky that till be pretty at sunset, too. So I thought, "Hmm, what would this location look like just after sundown? Here we go:
