When my son, Josh, was seven, one of the things he loved most was creating elaborate scenes with his favorite toy, the Teenage Ninja Mutant Turtles. Of course, all the scenes he’d conjure up depicted various stages of fighting. Inevitably, Josh would ask me to take a photo of his scenes, using my old, pre-digital camera. Trust me, my photos could never do his battle scenes justice.
Now, I’m excited to share with you someone who has taken photos of a classic toy to a whole new level. This fellow WordPress blogger, Dan Phelps, is a genius! Dan, a 5th grade school teacher from Tennessee, brilliantly uses the LEGO toys to create visual stories, often with comical, twisted captions. He posts a new photo everyday, so you’re going to want to check his site and check it often–if not daily! Below is a link to one of my favorites. Enjoy! You can find more at Dan’s site, http://legomyphoto.wordpress.com/.
Have to share this with my son, who loves Legos. Thanks!
Came here from that blog, it’s one of my favourite blogs.
Glad you stopped by! Hope you find something you like in this blog too! 🙂
That’s such a cool scene and great pic – such creativity! Thanks for the recommendation … off to check out his site now.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I do! Warning: you may find yourself spending hours perusing these photos. The one I posted here is from Day 94, but Dan, the photographer, has posted all the way to Day 230. And counting…
I’ve also seen these amazing pics. Thanks for sharing them.
These photos should be seen by as many as possible. They’re funny, and a wonderful escape from our everyday world. Glad you’re enjoying them, too! 🙂
I think he was freshly pressed a month or so ago. The boys were fascinated with all the different photos. Great idea, I thought. Certainly made me laugh.
Yes, I believe he’s been freshly pressed twice in recent weeks. Which is how I discovered his photos. They’re hilarious!
