Vesa Lehtimäki  Illustrator, photographer, HUGO Award finalist 2017. I created blizzards with Star Wars Lego and had an influence on how The Lego Movie looks like.

I got some more frames from my underwater experiments, but for now this is the last one. And it's not even underwater. It's a capture from the shore taken on the moment the underwater crew surfaces. Yes, the water was freezing cold.

When operating in shallow waters with propeller powered gear, one must always be aware of the bottom sediments, you don't want to disturb that with the propeller wash. It takes a true master to manoeuver through the shallowest part of the lagoon and leave the water crystal clear, as it should be.

Another exposure from the roadtrip I took last week. Didn't take as many photographs as I had hoped, the trip was so packed with everything, but I found some of the nicest locations to revisit some day. Including these waters, I don't think I've seen natural water this clear before.

I like these divers, they see worlds to explore in places you'd never expect.

Last week I went for a little road trip, 3244,3 kilometres in six days. I had a camera and some Lego with me.

Last friday there was a big airshow in Kaivopuisto, Helsinki. You know, a classic airshow with fighter jets and assorted machinery over a 100k spectator crowd. The Red Arrows did their routine, some beautiful old jets made an appearance, like a pair of shiny Fouga Magisters, I like those. My favourite was this old Corellian YT-1800 variant, no loops or smoke trails, just an elegant low altitude pass. It was a very nice evening by the sea.

Edit, four hours later. I realised this idea is really close to Bill George's SciFi Airshow project (look it up, it's fantastic!), and I am feeling a bit annoyed with myself. I know, it's no big deal, but I really try to not use other people's ideas. It's a positive challenge I've set for myself. When I find myself stepping into that territory, it feels uncomfortable, even if it was unintended. This was an Idea I got while on the spot. Gotta watch my step closer.

June 8, World Oceans Day.

This is not in an ocean, but in the Mediterranean sea. The little Lego sub performed brilliantly nevertheless.

Star Wars and Other Galactic Funk. Dancing the night away with C-3PO and the Disco Spaceman.

Another failed attempt to bail Han Solo out from Jabba’s clutches. The teddy bear didn’t cut it.

From a couple of months ago. Not the best I ever did, but I need a distraction, a bad news day.

It was a night of new discoveries. Figrin D'an had created a new musical instrument to beef up the sound of his band, the Modal Nodes, and this was the night they put it to a test. The walk from backstage to the stage was the longest Figrin D'an ever did. It was like walking through a billowing cloud of smoke in super slow motion. He was terrified.
.
As the first riffs from the new instrument echoed from the walls of the seedy Mos Eisley joint, however, Figrin knew his new material was a success. The roof of the cantina blew off as the crowd responded to the new sound, the reaction was profound and immediate. Never, ever had the cantina seen anything like it, not even close. Even the patrolling imperial Sandtoopers took their backpacks and helmets off and joined the exstatic dancing mass. Figrin D'an and the Modal Nodes was solid gold and they played their hearts out.
.
Later, when the "I was there" t-shirts appeared, that first gig had become a legend. The t-shirts sold doublefold the number the cantina could possibly accommodate at any given moment – and it wasn't even full that night!

The Mos Eisley cantina was a wretched hive of scum and villainy. Comfortable with the clientele, Bossk used to hang out at the cantina from time to time. Despite the strict rule of not serving droids, IG-88 was a regular as well.
.
The bad reputation following Iggy and Bossk everywhere repelled other customers effectively. They could go to the cantina only if they agreed to sit in the darkest corner of the room, farthest away from the bar. That was okay though, Iggy didn't need visible light anyway and Bossk, well, he didn't need light either, he could sense the body heat of anyone in the room.
.
The truth is that in the privacy of the darkness they drank some blue milk, or Bossk did, Iggy consumed nothing but the ambience, and enjoyed Galactic Scrabble – the Trandoshian edition.
.
Bounty hunters Bossk and IG-88 were evil only by reputation, it was a strictly job related thing.

The real story behind my earlier photograph of this same location a couple of weeks ago is not as straightforward as I let you to believe. The X-wing is of course mine and I parked it there for the photograph.
.
It was a bit of a trouble to get the X-wing to slide under the lights. I needed some precision help to do that, but the help I got proved to not be much of a help. That droid. Oh man! It just drove around on the empty ice, babbling to itself, making noises. If I did't know better, I'd say it was giggling and having fun.
.
Droids don't do that. Do they?
