Every picture yada yada yada

Every picture tells a story.

A picture is worth a thousand words.

Yep, we’ve all heard these before.

I guess I’ve been afforded the luxury of posting images on Instagram with accompanying words. Heck, the words were what dictated my shots when I first started posted. Silly little puns. Silly little puns, with a silly little photo to accompany them. Continue reading Exhibition ammunition

Ninja Vanish!

Well, it seems President Business is at it again. Last week, 36 of my Brick Sailboat LEGO ninja pictures were removed from Redbubble by Redbubble at the request of LEGO A/S. They claimed ownership of these 36 pictures (but not my many other pics for sale on the site) and poof, they’ve been taken down.

I’m not a punk, how can I be?

I’m not a punk, how can I be?

Serious works with limited means

I grew up on a steady diet of punk rock.

Three decades have passed since I bought my first punk album, In My Head by Black Flag. My musical tastes have broadened and, some might say, mellowed. But my belief in the punk rock ethos hasn’t waned. Continue reading I’m not a punk, how can I be?

Ode to the Teddy Bear

The other day I posted a photo of Groot holding a teddy bear and good friend to the blog, @AliceinCleveland, asked if my photo was an “ode to Kristina?” While subconsciously my photo may have been inspired by Kristina’s work, I admit she’s had a lot of influence over my work in the past six months, I truly think that the teddy bear looms large for many Legographers.

LEGO Collectible Series #15

I love the LEGO collectible series and I think this latest group, series #15, is a winner. I’ll confess, I haven’t felt that way about several of the more recent series. But #15 seems to capture the fun and whimsy of the earliest collectable series. Continue reading LEGO Collectible Series #15

I took the challenge

When Kristina proposed to make an exact copy of a photo from another photographer, I felt very excited about this challenge. I was also excited to see the results of Kristina’s own challenge which I think was a wonderful mix of the style of both of her and Vesa; her own inspiration. Continue reading I took the challenge

My attempt to make an exact copy became a homage!

I know that I disqualified myself at the beginning of this challenge. when I said I have tried this before and that I didn’t make it. But my past experience didn’t stop me thinking that this time would be a success. Yesterday I decided to give the challenge my best try. I started by telling my twelve-year-old son that I was going to make an exact copy of the picture “Guys? Hey, guys? This ain’t funny! Guys, where are you? HELLO?” by Vesa Lehtimäki. It’s a picture that I really like. My son looked at me and smiled, looked at Vesa Lehtimäki’s pictures and responded, “You will never make it. You will never do the same picture. I know you, you will do your own picture and it will look like yours.” I smiled back at him and said, “I’ll give it a try…” Continue reading My attempt to make an exact copy became a homage!
