Life’s a LEGO beach

Michael Jasper has pulled off a difficult trick with this image. I’m not normally a fan of minifigs and models appearing in the natural environment in photos. Having real foliage or objects tends to destroy any impression of scale within the models, making it obvious how small they really are. However, this beach scene is enhanced by the sandy setting. It obviously helps that the beach chair model is a sweet little build, and don’t miss Michael’s inspired parts-usage for the bikini top…

Edit: This relaxing scene is actually 10 years old, and it happens to be the very first LEGO creation not built by founder Andrew blogged here on The Brothers Brick! We’ll call this post a “classic rewind.”
