2012 Photo of the Day Favorites

Happy New Year readers/viewers!  2012 was an exciting/interesting year for me from a photography stand point with a lot happening.  Even with photography becoming a full time job I am still trying to keep up with Shutter Mike.  This is where I get to express the creative and dare I say “artistic” side of my photography.  The Photo of the Day posts are my outlet.  I fell short by 23 days for 2012, but I consider that a success still.  The montage above represents some of my favorites from 2012.  Thanks of visiting and for coming back!

Check out Lego Architecture Photography Part I if you missed it the other day.  While part one included some of the international architecture int he Lego collection, part two has all American buildings, including three by one of America’s most famous architects, Frank Lloyd Wright.

Fallingwater – Bear Run, PA

Robie House – Chicago, IL

Guggenheim Museum – New York City

Seattle Space Needle – Seattle, WA

Rockefeller Center – New York City

The White House – Washington D.C.

Lego has been producing the Lego Architecture series with the “adult collector” (i.e. kid at heart) in mind for a few years now.  Each set is a Lego replica of an architecturally significant building from around the world.  They have reproduced works by Frank Lloyd Wright such as Fallingwater; widely recognized icons such as Big Ben and the Seattle Space Needle; and some of the world’s tallest buildings such as the Sears Tower (now the Willis Tower) all in Lego bricks for you to assemble.  I have collected 14 of the 15 that have been produced so far and decided to expand my architectural photography to include Lego architecture.

Sydney Opera House – Sydney, Australia
