When I was a kid, I was obsessed with Lego and now at the age of 33, I still am obsessed with it to a certain degree. If you want to keep me quiet, just pass me the bricks and ask me to build something! A house, a tower or a multi-colored Imperial command bunker, I’m your man.
But today I found something amazing on Flickr. A photographer took his Lego figures and reconstructed famous photographs. So he did raising the flag at Iwo Jima, the Vietcong captain shooting the resistance fighter (although this one is a bit inappropriate since the Lego figures are grinning), the Twickenham streaker, the D-Day landings and the Moon landing.
But my favourite is the picture on the left – the VJ Day Times Square picture.
You can see all the pictures here. Well worth looking at.
