Photographer Turns LEGO Bricks Into Foods and Things

1 Comment

Back in November 2015, Polish photographer Michał Kulesza decided to start a daily photo project in which he would shoot one creative photo involving LEGO bricks every day. He decided to capture the famous bricks as everyday foods and objects.

Kulesza ended up shooting these LEGO photos for 135 straight days.

“In my work I just wanted to make people smile,” the photographer writes.

You can find more of Kulesza’s work on his website, Behance, Facebook, and Instagram.

If that's too easy, you could try joining Tautology Club, which meets on the date of the Tautology Club meeting.

Isn't 2x per year "semiannual" and biannual once per two years?

They're interchangeable unfortunately

wikipedia...three times in any 2 year period, as against Sesquiennual which is twice in any three year period

"Biennial" is once per two years.

I see the problem. "Biennial" and "Biannual" mean "once per two years" and "twice a year," respectively. Sorry for the confusion. I think I won't join the linguistics club :)

This was actually wish #406. Wish #2 was for him to lose the ability to remember that each new wish wasn't my first.

‘tsundoku’ - the Japanese word for buying books & not reading them, leaving them to pile up. Who else is guilty of this?

I think there's a related concept of making new friends but then being a derelict and not hangout out with them.

Velominati Super Prestige: Paris-Roubaix 2013

The Lion cooks up a helping of V-cakes for <a href=Faboo after dishing out the hurt on Le Carrefour de l'Arbre" src="http://www.velominati.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/photo-1-620x465.jpg" width="620" height="465" /> The Lion cooks up a helping of V-cakes for Faboo after dishing out the hurt on Le Carrefour

It looks so easy on the television. Well, no, actually it looks pretty bloody hard. We think we have some understanding of how they suffer, how their bodies can take the continual beating. But we don’t really know. Not even by riding these abominations they call roads twice in the space of a few days can we understand the scale of the thing. Not even by witnessing firsthand a master of the cobbles effortlessly turning the cranks, cruising past us as if on a cushion of air by comparison to our bed of nails can we fully comprehend what it takes to ride these secteurs with any panache, style or speed.

While we witnessed a Roubaix masterclass from The Lion himself today, a new name could be added alongside his on the long list of legends on Sunday. Or it could be a former vainquer adding to an already impressive palmares. But as we’ve seen in the past, and even the past hours, luck plays as big a part as skill, talent and fitness in this most beautifully horrible race. And it plays an even bigger part in picking the top five in the VSP.

All you have to do is sit back and enjoy the spectacle. We’ll be doing the hard yards at the side of the roads of Troisvilles, the Troueé, and the Carrefour. Study the form guide, then throw it out. It’s no good to you here.

In the meantime here’s a look at a bunch of nobodies and a guru riding a secteur on today’s recon. The lesson comes at around 0.15.

Watch at about 15 seconds in as Museeuw goes flying past the rest of our bunch. I was dangling somewhere off the back trying to just hang on.
