Star Wars Luke Home Real-2

Stars Wars was filmed well over 30 years ago.  And while the movie is far from forgotten, unfortunately the same cannot be said for the movie’s sets.

Case in point is the sets built to depict Luke Skywalker’s childhood home on the fictional desert planet Tatooine.  Captured by Photographer Rä di Martino, who spent months traveling Chott el Djerid in Tunisia where the sets were erected and now sit dilapidated, they were not easy feat to find.  But thanks to a combination of Google Maps and leveraging the knowledge of local drivers, she was eventually able to track them down and capture the Lucas inspired structures before they completely disintegrated.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
