Snap 1 - Star Wars

This year I'm hoping to be a weekly participant in Helena's new meme - Snap. Here's how she describes it: My idea for Snap is a visually linked set of between 2 and 4 images.  The set can be based on colour or shape or subject.

I didn't really have a theme picked out when I set out on my errands today but was able to snap these three photos all linked by the new Star Wars movie.


We are Star Wars fans around here. (In fact, we watched all six of the Star Wars movies at the cabin on our recent trip to Tennessee. Only then did we get to the theater to see Episode VII: The Force Awakens.) So, of course, these Star Wars luggage pieces caught my eye when I stopped at the Samsonite store today to drop off a piece of luggage that needs some warranty repair. I snapped a photo to share with Robbie and headed off on my next errand.


At the deli where I stopped for lunch, these cookies caught my eye. I decided to snap another photo because I knew then I had my Snap photos for the week. (No, I did not have a cookie with my brown bag lunch; I had a banana instead - yeah me for making a healthy choice!)


Then, as I was headed into the library for today's book club meeting, I was excited to snap another Star Wars photo of the display case in the lobby!


Thanks Helena for the INSPIRATION to be attentive and snap some FUN photos today.

Will you be joining in with Snap this year?

This will be my third year of participating in Helena's memes. I love them. Your theme is a good one, although I'm not much of a Star Wars fan, Tracy is.

great set and a lovely example of happening upon a set - I love that luggage

I saw the latest one over Christmas and loved it, so much better than the last three, much more like the originals.

Yes I'm sure I'll join in at some point. Your Star Wars pictures make a great capture of a little moment in our cultural history

How fascinating are your photos! And what a great story you tell with them about our fascination with story and myth. I have never seen suitcases like these. Wow!

Well spotted on all of these. We are not Star Wars followers but younger daughter had to do a quick brush up before going to see the film with her boyfriend and his family.
