LEGO My Shadow

While in Chicago last weekend, we went to the Museum of Science and Industry. There we saw the Harry Potter Exhibit ~ which was wonderful {but we couldn't take pictures of} and the German U-505 submarine {which we also couldn't take pictures of inside the craft} However....we did take some great shadows of the ART + Science = Architecture Exhibit!

What a job this guy has....Adam Reed Tucker is a certified LEGO professional and a trained architect. He has created some amazing architectural LEGO creations.


More than fifteen buildings that contain tens of thousands of LEGO pieces, the exhibit includes Chicago's Sears Tower, the St. Louis Gateway Arch, China’s Jin Mao Tower, the Burj Dubai Tower and the soon-to-be Chicago Spire.




Isn't it Hard to believe that these are all created out of LEGO bricks?



Come on along and join us as we travel around the blog world looking at shadows that you might not believe on Hey Harriet! You"ll never know what you'll find!

You get a "wow" from me, too. Those Lego structures and fabulous, and the shadows they cast are worthy of a real-life concrete jungle.

I'm hoping to get into Chicago for that Harry Potter show before it's gone too.
