As you know, I have developed a fascination with Legos.  I bought a Christmas set and spent many happy hours putting it together.  Recently, I came across a website by photographer Andrew Whyte.   He has a Lego “Little Guy” that he takes pictures of.  But, it’s so much more than just pictures.  It’s amazing what he’s done with a Lego man and his iPhone.  I was immediately inspired, so I went through the tub of Legos leftover from Corey and Jonathan.  There wasn’t a single person that could be me and let me say, there’s a lot of Legos in that tub.  So, I headed to the Lego website and searched.  Any piece can be bought individually and the prices are very reasonable.  For $10.00, which includes shipping, I had my “Little Guy” and also one for Corey.  I figured being he takes so many pictures, he might enjoy playing with Legos in a different way.  His Lego guy has, in addition to a camera, a pair of binoculars and is dressed  in a red baseball cap, like the Cardinal cap Corey wears when he goes birding.  I submitted my order and waited and waited for it to come.  While the set I ordered was shipped in the United States, individual pieces like I ordered, come from Denmark.  I waited and waited some more.  Finally, I got my “Little Guy” ( I do have to come up with a better name) and tried, yesterday, to position some shots.  It’s not easy, but it’s fun and Little Guy, (Little Girl?,  Little Friend?) will be making appearances on this blog.  Do you think it looks like me?
