Since it's generally considered "unprofessional" to dress as a Jedi everyday and carry around a lightsaber everywhere I go, I still often find myself thinking that my life could easily be spiced up with a bit more Star Wars. Luckily, photographer Thomas Dagg made the "Star Wars" series of photos, taking every day scenes and inserting Star Wars elements to really cool effect. The series was inspired by Dagg's childhood, the pervasiveness of the Star Wars trilogy, and the way he saw the world. Dagg says in his blog:

I absorbed anything and everything Star Wars... it was my life.

These crossovers have discretely included some great references that help make the real world seem a little more fantastic.

While the images are easy to spot in some of these classic photographs, some of them are a bit trickier. Can you find them all?

When did they start building apartment complexes on Hoth?!

"Good morning, world. Let's just open the curtains and see see what you have in store for me tod-AHHHH!"

I think I see a familiar face or...helmet on that bus.

But first, let me take a selfie.

"She may not look like much, but she's got it where it counts, kid."

Oops! Watch your step, AT-AT!

Well this is not what Endor looked like at ALL in the travel guides.

This one drew a much bigger crowd than the Duel on Cloud City.

Does carbonite go in trash or recycling?

*Tusken Raider scream*

It's a bird, it's a plane...

"I'm sorry, but this is airplane parking only. Snowspeeders are supposed to dock to the left."

Honestly, someone had to do it.

"Do. Or do not. There is no try." So don't just try to carry him across the street, man.

So rude when TIE fighters fly RIGHT over your house.

Don't you hate it when you pull up to a spot thinking it's empty but then there's a speeder bike there? The worst.

Did it just get a lot darker? Oh...well, that explains it.

Now this one everyone should get.

So in case you ever wish your life had a bit more Star Wars in it, maybe look a little closer! You never know when an Ewok is lurking behind a corner.


How cool would it be to see Star Wars elements in real life?
