Weekly Photo Challenge: Monument

16 Apr


A nice tribute.

A nice tribute.


It’s not as inspiring  as the original in Iwo Jima, but I thought this was such an amazing tribute created by the LEGO Master Builders.

At least 1,000 pieces.


Definitely more.

Definitely monumental.

      Dude you and me both. It looked pretty awesome. If you’re ever in Cali you definitely have to go bring a niece or nephew with you they’ll love it!

    Amazing what one can build with LEGO. 🙂

      It was pretty cool. They have a bunch of different landmarks, but this one was definitely a monument.

    Probably at least 10,000 pieces there. It is a sizeable monument. And a very life-like one indeed. Hope it withstands wind 🙂

      Definitely at least 10,000. A very cool sight.

      Ohhhhhhhh! It is a super amazing site to see. If you ever make your way to California I know your son will love it! Have a great Easter my friend 🙂

    This is full of challenge–the original event, the photography challenge, and the challenge in recreating it in Legos. Wow.

      Thanks so much! I was hoping someone would get the layers of meaning beyond the awesomeness of the LEGO creation. A definite check-me out landmark on the LEGO tour. 🙂

    Guat, if you had said this was made out of over 100,000 pieces I would not have been surprised. It’s amazing that people can figure out how to do that. I barely have hand-eye coordination while eating a pear.

      You know what? It may be. Those pieces are pretty small and the structure is pretty amazing. I can’t believe they actually have people called LEGO Master Builders and they actually are creative enough to build something this awesome. It is pretty cool. I would need some serious direction here and like a year of free time 🙂
