11 Fun Lego Photos

0Comments

Have you ever met a Lego enthusiast? They can be a lot of fun to talk to and will open up a whole world (or perhaps ‘culture’ is a better word) for you around the little colorful bricks that many of us stop playing with as kids. Many Lego lovers are also keen photographers who love to document their work, fun, humor and creativity. Here’s just a quick sample of some of the hundreds of thousands of Lego Photos on Flickr.

  • Very creative I must say. Too bad I am too old to have ever had any Lego toys. My google research tells me that lego was invented in 1958, but I really don’t remember it being around until at least the late 60s.

    There is a guy on Red Bubble who does a lot of lego photos. Really cool to see.

    Unfortunately mine never seem to come out all that well.. :o(

  • Tim

    That’s a very nice collection of shots here. I had loads of it but that is at my parents house 1200kms away from home. My daughter is playing with the Duplo series. But that is not so interesting. So I will have to wait a few more years before I can start with this….

  • Hi – Great collection of photos.

    My lad (now 12) is mad on lego – loads of star wars etc – loads of build time between us but that’s what Boxing Day is for isn’t it?

    Most complicated was the Ferrari last xmas.

    I’ll see if I can find a picture.

  • these are great 🙂 just goes to show the photo ops that exist right under our fingertips.

  • I can’t compete with the quality of these macro photos, but I took this set of photos of a lego contemporary art installation a couple of years ago:

  • Flo

    Very funny and creative pics, I like them – especially the recreation of famous Photos! Excellent job, I’ll try this, too

  • Nik

    This guy on a message board I’m on is taking pictures of legos every day for an entire year. He’s about halfway through.

  • Mine are not of nearly the same caliber, but I have been taking similar shots with my Chilean chanchitos (3-legged ceramic piggies). =)

  • Thingy

    If you like lego and also happen to like Eddie Izzard you will love these videos (I know its not exactly photography related, unless you include video, but its very funny).

  • This group on flickr takes photos of toys are part of the unseen war. Always brainstorming things for this but have yet to dive in. Interesting ideas though.

  • Sorry, here is the website.

  • How can you forget the Brick Testament??? 🙂

  • wow..coool….

  • You’re never too old for lego. At least thats what I though when i bought a Lego Ferrari last year!

    Never concidered photographing it though.

  • fransky

    wow, im a lego enthusiast, but i never though of this before! cool! im gonna start doing this soon!!!!!! thanks a lot! 🙂

  • wow.. what a really nice image… from here I can say the style of picture in this articles look similar to tilt shift photography. you cab see some sample of really beautiful tilt shift photography at http://www.smashingmagazine.com/2008/11/16/beautiful-examples-of-tilt-shift-photography/. The articles also explain little bit about what is tilt shift photography.

    After looking at the pictures, I am about 75% on my way to the nearest store to buy the Lego Sets and get clicking away.
    Thank you for posting these images.

  • Jeremy

    Not really into legos, but I love the recreation of the tankman photo. I’ve always thought that was one of the greatest photos ever taken, subject wise

  • I love Lego’s. These are great shots. Once I shot Lego’s for a school project, the series came out well for the project, but sadly I don’t have the right lens or lighting to make such nice ones.Hopefully soon…

  • really nice photos!!!! like it!!!!

  • These are great fun. Although the belly button shot is disturbing.

  • Lego is brilliant, it can reach you on so many levels!

  • Never too old for legos. Love the shots!

  • These are divine! Just wonderful! xoxo love, shannon

  • Love the Hand of God goal, and the Tianenmen Square one. And Indiana Jones holding threepio is a big web of references (people with semiotics background who’ve played the LEGO Indiana Jones video game will probably agree).

  • This is great! My son will have a blast at this when I show him 🙂

  • airfang

    the last one was replaying Tian’an men Square incidence?

    Anyway… those were all shot with macro lenses right?

    nice shots, love lego

  • WOW all this shots are AMAZING..

  • good picture… i like LEGO very much…

  • some classic LEGO- star wars

  • Amazing photos. He’s real big fan of lego

  • First picture is amazing! Macro Lego photography rules!

  • Mom

    Most of the images are fun – the shot of the man with the hairy belly and lego
    piece is NOT APPROPRIATE. What were you thinking? that only adults would
    be looking at your lego photos. IT IS INAPPROPRIATE FOR CHILDREN and
    is in very poor taste – AND a lousy shot.

    PLEASE REMOVE THAT IMAGE.

  • My wife won’t be pleased that the first thought I had on seeing this was “Great! Now I can write Legos off on my taxes!”

  • LOL those are awesome!

  • Rachel Jayne Minery

    “Mom”
    Sorry, but are you kidding? How is a belly inappropriate? I’m pretty sure those children you speak of also have bellies. :/
