Photographing a modular building

I love LEGO’s modular building series. But while they’re among my favorite sets, I had never photographed any. They’re great sets to build and look great in Beastburg, my own LEGO city. As an outdoor photographer though, they’re not what usually inspires me to photograph.

However, I didn’t buy the two previous modulars, the Diner, and the Garage. I initially wanted to as they look beautiful, but I ended up making the decision of skipping them. The main reason being that the style is quite different than the previous buildings I own, and thus they wouldn’t fit that well together. (And then there was the other problem that my city would eventually be full…)

But when I saw the first images of this year’s modular, 10270 Bookshop, I knew I’d have to get it. And then it happened that we’d get one for review from LEGO. The idea of challenging myself with photographing yet another type of large LEGO set was planted in my head.

Twelve.

Twelve months in a year.
And twelve words to work with.
When I set out our journey at the beginning of 2017, I had a vague idea where I wanted to go to but did not know where these words would take us.
A journey for sure.
A creative exploration.
A search for … something.
And here we are in the eleventh month of the year.
Yet, no time to look back.
No rest for the wicked.
A new challenge to explore.
A new word to share.
So close to twelve, so far to go.
And the word is … Book(s). Continue reading “Books”
