When I was a kid, I was a lego-maniac. My parents thought I might end up an engineer, and that my masterwork would be composed entirely of all the legos that they had purchased while I was growing up. I’d make castles, and space bases, and forest scenes, all from my lego bricks.
Apparently, though, I am barely a talented amateur. Lego enthusiasts the world over converged on GMU this weekend to show off their very best. The photo here, taken by Jaki Chikwendiu of the Post shows a version of the Indy 500. The Post’s gallery of the event is astounding. Of course, I’ve never been to Legoland, so perhaps it just doesn’t compare. Sadly, I missed this event, going to have to watch for next year’s!
