TBB cover photo for December 2018: The quickest way to the top

For December’s TBB social media cover image, alanboar is taking us back to the turn of the last century in Hong Kong, where the Taikoo Ropeway spans the mountainside in Hong Kong. In use from 1891-1932, the aerial ropeway (also called the Mount Parker Cable Car) provided quick transportation from the docks and sugar refinery to apartments on the mountain’s slopes. Alanboar’s rendition is an artistic representation all decked out in the white of snow, backed by the apartments and elegant steep-pinnacled peaks with clouds punctuating the sky.

TBB Cover Photo for October 2018: Enjoy the high life in the skies!

We at TBB always take pleasure in seeing builders take their creations to new heights. Here we have Marcel V.  execute on that quite literally, with these structures dubbed “Giap-Towers,” where minifigures and their humble abodes float amongst the clouds. After featuring this floating steampunk cityscape just a few days ago, we loved their simplistic charm and have chosen this to be TBB’s cover photo for October 2018.

TBB Cover Photo for September 2018: Bricktychon – The Wood Tryptichon

The TBB Cover Photo for September 2018 is this beautiful triptych (a fancy word for a picture or carving featuring three panels side by side), which shows the journey of wood during medieval times, from logging through cutting and use in a large building. The photo is a collaboration between three builders: Travis Brickle, who built the forest, Simon NH, who built the sawmill, and Ralph Langer, who built the medieval construction scene. While each of the builds is stunning in its own right, the builders did an excellent job coordinating their photography and build styles to create a trifecta of creations that tells a simple yet charming story.

TBB Cover Photos – Oh right...it’s August!!

So apparently we were all having too much fun at Andrew’s month long beach party at his villa in Ibiza to realize that we forgot to update our Cover Photos for the month of August. So our most sincere apologies for that oversight…but honestly, I am just going to blame Keith and his margaritas, Nevada boys know how to mix a drink apparently!

So without further ado I am happy to announce the cover photos for the month of September (and the tail end of August).

Josh picked this photo by Tommy M for our Facebook page. Josh figured we could use a little steampunk/floating rock love. The fact that Tommy’s photo is wonderfully edited and fit Facebook perfectly helped too.

Cover Photo

I was left with the responsibility to choose the photo for Twitter. There were several shots that I really liked, but unfortunately didn’t jive well with the Twitter avatar. In the end I choose this brilliant shot by Jonas. Not only are these two wonderfully created models, but the composition of the photo meshed perfectly with the Twitter layout

Which one would you choose?

So thank you again for everyone continuing to contribute to the flickr group. Keep up the with your submissions, and keep in mind quality over quantity!

I promise that we will remember to update the photos in October…hopefully 4 weeks should be sufficient time to recover from Keith’s margaritas.
