The Next Generation of R2-D2's?

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 18 February 2014 in Miscellaneous and Portfolio.

While attending the Morton Arboretum's Illumination Festival in Lisle, Illinois, we came across what appeared to be a circle of R2-D2 droids involved in a séance. For those of you who don't remember who R2-D2 was, he was a droid in the various "Star Wars" movies.

What you actually see here is a circle of search lights that light up the trees in various changing, alternating colors.

Happy Silly Tuesday!

Yes, i Love. It's strange, and the light is very impacting, in all the R2-D2s and like a sword in the tree ;-)
