This piece by photographer Alex Brown is the latest offering at the 20x200 art project, a great site that offers prints of original art at affordable prices. Alex Brown says:

This photograph was taken in a McDonald's restaurant in Upstate New York. The kid was sitting in the booth on his own wearing a Darth Vader helmet that made the same breathing sound as the character in Star Wars. For some reason, he reminded me of myself as a child. I always wanted a helmet like that when Star Wars first came out but my parents wouldn't buy me one.

Sad Vader, indeed, Alex.
