A local photographer has been adding a touch of space opera glory to my fair city. Did you know Darth Vader takes the streetcar?

Thomas Dagg has taken shots of Toronto and put in some details that definitely make you look twice.

The photo project, he said, has taken two years of "lens trickery" and angle arrangements (and a healthy use of Photoshop) as he attempted to mirror techniques used to film the original sci-fi movies.

Some of these are subtle, but just killer. Jawas rummaging through our trash like the raccoons? Boba Fett taking a selfie? Gold.

More available at his website. There's a Toronto-as-Hoth that you gotta see.
