Looks like one can construct anything from Lego.

When we were kids, my brother and I used to built Lego towers that touched the ceiling of or room. Yes, we had many pieces, my brother is now a mechanical engineer, and sometimes the towers came crashing down...

Quite incredible what can be done with these things. I'm curious, though, as to who decided on LEGO sculptures rather than more traditional materials? And why? Perhaps to attract more youth?

So nice!

Incredible ! He must use some glue or something to get such equilibrium!
I like that the colors of the birds match with the lovely flowers..

The Lego sculpture is really impressive. The flowers are nice too!

That really is an amazing sculpture. To think it's make of lego bricks is almost unbelievable.

It is another amazing sculpture and so colorful -- not to mention that these " Lego" ones are really different and clever! Fun shots, Jack! Hope you have a fun, colorful weekend as well!!!

Amazing! And the composition on top is terrific! Well done, Jack.

How amazing. I saw a few pictures recently where people have repaired walls with Lego just to make them look fun and colourful.

Flowers...sunshine...sigh. Beautiful! You're right. I've had enough winter.

Good grief, how many more marvellous Lego structures are there?

I do not intend to detract from the artistry of your photographs, but I wish that the hummingbirds that we see in Costa Rica and Arizona were as easy to photograph as the Lego hummingbird in your photos.

That is amazing work, getting sculptures like this assembled!

Birdman said...

Ha! Lego World is not for me. If he knew the words he wouldn't be humming.

So I guess these guys get paid to play with Legos!
Much easier to photograph than the real thing. I have hundreds of failed attempts.

I wonder how many people worked on that sculpture?

Randy said...

These are just so impressive.

This hummingbird is static. Real ones are are almost fluid. But if art imitates life this does a pretty good job.

Lynette said...

Oh, man. I think this is super. I love Legos! And flowers! Thanks, Jack.
